A picture is worth 1000 words..

Shouldn't they be 1000 good ones?

Make up(when used correctly) can enhance your features and showcase your best assets. It can cover imperfections, bring out your eyes and add that touch of rosiness to your cheeks. I am a huge fan of make up – but it has to be done right. Finding the right concealer and powder can seem incredibly difficult at times because there are so many products in the market. It really depends on your particular wants and needs – I found a few that worked for me!
Who doesn’t like 2 in 1 make up? Cargo’s OneBase is foundation and concealer in one(pictured right). It covers imperfections like a concealer but blends to match your skins natural tone like a foundation. This long wearing multi-tasker is my favourite for everyday use.
Lights, camera – CAMERA?! Photos are meant to capture the good moments – and the bad, well those can be deleted or destroyed. Make Up Forever has created an HD line of make up that will minimize those bad moments – like the acne break-out on picture day. With an invisible cover concealer(pictured left) for no-flaw, zoom ready skin, it works double time by boosting the skins hydration while reflecting and refracting light to give your skin a soft healthy glow.
Quick Tip: When applying a concealer, do so with a brush. Brushes apply concealer more evenly than fingers, they can also get into the little creases fingers can’t.
After you’ve found a concealer that works for you, you need to hunt down a powder that evens out your skin tone without looking caked-on.
Covergirl has created their TRUblend collection with shades that adapt to your skin tone. Their TRUblend pressed powder creates the perfectly natural no make up look. It is lightweight enough to wear over any concealer.
For heavier coverage, Benefit’s Hello Flawless(pictured left) can be easily applied with a sponge – but this powder isn’t only for heavy coverage. If you apply it with a brush it glides on sheer and can be layered beautifully for customized coverage – another multi-tasker! This powder leaves your skin soft and smooth.

Go out there and grab your colours! By the time you're done, you'll definitely be ready for your close up!
