First of all I feel like I should start this post by saying a huge thank you to all of you who are following and supporting my lil’ blog. As you may have noticed RosyChicc hit 6000 Bloglovin Followers the other day and I cannot express how happy and content this makes me feel! Big virtual hugs to all of you eek! Secondly, if you follow me on Twitter you probably know that I’ve been having major issues with my memory card, so until it’s being fixed I decided to share a post I originally wrote for the lovely Sandra from The Black Pearl Blog (here). She kindly let me guest post over on her wonderful blog and I figured I’d share it on mine as well in case you’ve missed it. Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to check out Sandra’s blog – it’s one of my personal faves!
With the colder months slowly but surely creeping up to us, I need to amp up my skincare game and whip out my trusty makeup glow-getters, which will kiss the dull-looking skin a big fat goodbye. Meet my favorite beauty bits that never fail to perk up my complexion and add life and youthful radiance to it.
I find that the quickest and easiest way to combat the lackluster complexion and oomph things up is using the oh-so-amazing Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation (here). Two pumps of this godsend miracle product is all I need to make my skin look well rested and flawless. The foundation offers medium to full coverage that not only hides all imperfections but also makes all signs of dullness and fatigue nowhere to be seen. The teeny tiny shimmery particles in the foundation (sounds scary but fear not – they are very subtle) add to the whole dewy and healthy skin look that we all know and adore. Wake Me Up blends beautiful into the skin and the skinlike finish definitely tickles my fancy. It hangs around for hours and hours and it is cheap and cheerful. A winner in my books.
If you are not fan of the all-over dewy complexion, then this L’Oreal Lumi Magique Primer (here) may float your boat. This is basically like summer glow in a tube and it’s my not-so-secret weapon to injecting faux radiance into my skin. This two in one skin enhancing liquid highlight could be used both over and under foundation on the highest points of the face for an instant boost. I always come back to this gem when my complexion is looking a bit ‘meh’ and I especially enjoy how it beefs up my base prior to foundation. Lumi Magique is also perfect for all of you dry skinned gals as it moisturizes the skin a bit as well. Radiant, healthy and happy looking skin even in the coldest day of the year? Check! Review here.
Say hello to the best illuminating powder companion – the incredible Soap&Glory Glow All Out (here). Gawd where do I even start – I bloomin’ love this stuff. This multipurpose beauty has me covered when I need to brighten up my skin and just make it that much extra lively. The über finely milled powder gives me youthful-looking complexion with just one gentle swipe of the brush for skin that looks ‘lit from within’. Glow All Out could be dusted all over the face or you can use it as highlight and just pop it on top of your cheekbones for some lift. Either way – the natural peachy pink shade that peps up all skin tones will make you look healthy, radiant and dewy. It is a complexion cheerleader, I tell ya! Review and swatches here.
