|Gwen at Work!|
Let’s put our hands together and welcome the amazingly talented and beautiful Gwen from Makeup Toys to our midst this week! Gwen works as a full time Makeup Artist in Singapore and loves talking about all things beauty related. She says that the best part about her job is the opportunity to meet wonderful artistic people and to make people feel and look beautiful with makeup. Gwen writes her own beauty blog, Makeup Toys to share her knowledge and to meet other wonderful beauty lovers all over the world (Her blog is a must visit for all you makeup lovers!!). If you ever visit Singapore, don’t forget to drop her a line or connect via her Facebook page. She would love to catch up with you!
Gwen’s favorites list keeps changing but the 5 items that she has listed here are her staples. She loves them to bits and hopes that you can give them a try too!
1. Le Blanc De Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base – The only Makeup Base/Foundation Primer that works for the humid Singapore weather. It is oil free and infused with Chanel Light Illuminating Technology used in all their makeup. This baby brightens up all skin tones and really gives dull complexion a much needed boost in color! (Should be equally good for our weather Gwen!)
2. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Liquid Foundation – This is the most natural finish foundation I can find and it is absolutely amazing in photos and day light. It does not oxidize on my skin and gives that dewy finish, even with a touch of translucent loose powder on a brush. I use one pump with a stipple brush for day and for parties, just use a little bit more and set the makeup with loose powder on a powder puff.
3. Chanel Correcteur Perfection – I use this as a highlighter and a concealer, for my cheek area, under my eyes and on the bridge of my nose for simple day to day makeup. I like the consistency of this concealer as it covers my imperfections but is not heavy. The best thing is that it does not get cakey.
