Hello to all my lovely readers.
I have received few emails from you recently where you were asking me to address some problems regarding makeup, hair care and beauty in general.
Since I love make up as much as I love fashion I decided to start this new section on the blog where I am going to share my opinions, reviews, advices and tricks with you.
I am also hoping to learn something new from you so make sure you share your thoughts and opinions on any subject or product I am going to discuss here.
Today I would to like to start with compact foundations and to be more specific just explain what it is exactly, how and when to use it and describe all different options available on the market.
What I like about compact foundation is the fact that they are quite easy to apply even while not at home thanks to the practical format with a mirror and a sponge compartment.
You can improve your makeup while at work or at school in a simple, fast and hygienic way.
When it comes to compact foundations we must first of all distinguish between a cream compact foundation and a powdery compact foundation.
Cream compact foundations are ideal for those of you who need a good coverage. In most cases you should be able to build it and get your skin feeling soft, moisturised and healthy.
One of my favorite options available is the Radiant Cream Compact Foundation by Nars which is wonderful when it comes to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It looks very natural on my skin and I love the luminous finish I get even after many hours.
Another product definitely worth mentioning is this BB Glow Compact by an Italian makeup brand Kiko.
This product evens skin tone and minimizes imperfections, giving an even, fresh and smooth complexion.
The SPF 20 sun protection factor protects skin from the sun’s rays and from aging.
Let’s take a look at the powdery compact foundations now.
These are ideal for those with oily or combinations skin types and you will find a wide range of options available.
The powdery compact foundations will mattify your skin and ensure a shine-free finish.
A perfect example of a very good foundation of this type is the 8 HR Mattifying Compact Foundation from Sephora.
This product reduces the appearance of pores, evens out the complexion, and hides imperfections for a perfectly smooth complexion.
On the top of that it also comes in a gorgeous compact with a lovely design.
Another product you must check out is the Sun Protection Compact Foundation from Shiseido.
Sun Protection Compact Foundation is an infusion of flawless looking foundation and powerful broad-spectrum sunscreen. The natural looking matte powder formula goes on easily with the a sponge and stays in place.
I feel I can strongly recommend this product, my face doesn’t get shiny and I love using it when I know I will spend most of my day outdoors.
