Since discovering SkinCeuticals some time ago, the brand continues to be one of my all-time favourites. This brand truly deliver on their promise every single time! Two key ingredients of which we all need to keep using are vitamin C and E. Combining 15% pure vitamin C, 1 % vitamin E and 0.5% ferulic acid, this formula offers exceptional results, turning around dry or age-affected skin and transforming it into a complexion of utter smooth radiance. Additionally, you can expect high protection from free radical damage and continual cell-regenerating qualities. Awesome!

Tips To Ensure Your Make-Up Stays Smudge-Proof

Hey Lovelies!

There’s a lot of brands that promise to keep your make-up smudge-proof. Sure, there are some great smudge-resistant products and some, that are, more WTF. That flawless complexion on which you spent enough time, should definitely not dissolve into non-existence by lunch. This is simply not an option. Fortunately, there are a few good tips to keep your make-up smudge-proof and ensure you look gorgeous all-day long. Read on:

1.Exfoliate, People!

I say this so much, but that’s because it is sooo important – exfoliation is key (but not too much). Try to exfoliate twice each week to keep the dead skin cells at bay and ensure your skin is a perfectly smooth canvas, thus giving your make-up the optimal chance of doing its job.

2.Keep Moisturisers and Serums To A Minimum And Give It Time

Moisturisers, serums and SPFs are essential, but it is important not to overdo it. Too much and your make-up will slide off quicker than ice cream on the surface of the sun (well, maybe not that quickly, but you get my point). The other point to remember, is once you’ve applied your moisturiser, serum and SPF, give it time to settle into your skin before you apply the primer.

3.Primer

Invest in a great primer for your skin type. I love Nude by Nature Perfecting Primer, £22. A good primer can and will make all the difference. Buy here

4.Layer

After applying your primer, add your foundation and concealer, then apply your contour and highlighter. I am a big fan of Iconic London’s Multi-Use Pro-Contour Palette, (£32.99). Once you have applied these, add a brush of blush and then a final brush of contour/highlighter for added staying power. Those with dry skin should stick to cream contours and foundations.

5.Give Eyes A Chance

Use an eye primer to keep your eyeshadow from smudging away,  I find Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion, £11.20 really keeps shadow crease-free for longer.

Liquid eyeliners are fab for the upper lids, but for the lower lash line opt for a pencil liner.

6.Set it

Always finish by adding a touch of mattifying powder to keep your make-up in place.   Et voila, you’re good to go, without the need for your compact or makeup essentials. (We all know we will probably take them, just to be on the safe side – old habits.)
