So I was asked on Twitter what products I use for Cheeks in my kit so I thought i’d show you guys what products I generally use while on shoots or with Clients.
When i’m working on Shoots/Clients I will use a range of different things but i will always carry a few things that never change some are things I keep adding when I run out and some are new additions. I will often work from a palette like my MAC Pro Palette above which has 6 colours that i love, Harmony is the best Contour colour i have ever used in a powder format
I love using Illamasqua Cream pigment in Hollow for Contouring on lighter skin tones as it looks just like a shadow but you have to be careful because if you use too much it can get muddy looking.
Right now im having a big thing for using creams, i feel they give the skin such a nice finish rather than having to much powder on the face the ones i love using are:
- MAC Pro Sculpting Cream in Pure Sculpture– This is a great colour for contouring on people from Medium plus skin tones because it is quite dark in the pan but once you buff and work it in it looks fine not to mention it doesn’t have too much red orange tones so it won’t look fake on you
- Hollow from Illamasqua
- Revlon Photoready Cream Blush– Perfect texture its really blendable and lasts a long time
- Topshop Cream Blush– Not something i use all that often but i do love the colour and texture
- Illamasqua Cream Blush in Lies- One of my favourite Highlighters for the cheekbones also a really gorgeous blush for people will super pale skin
I dont alway use creams sometimes depending on the skin of the person i’m working on i will use powders i feel powders work and look better on those with Oily skin because adding too much creams can just make the makeup look shiny and wear off easily.
Right now i’m loving-
- Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc
- NARS Albatross
- Tom Ford Narcissist
I find keeping a range of colours for different skin tones as well as skin types works really well actually thinking about a persons skin type when applying makeup can make a world of difference if they are really oily don’t apply a ton of creams because the fact is they won’t last or applying to many powder products to someone who has really dry skin or is a mature person, you just have to know what flatters what kind of person and skin type/tone
