New Make Up Intro’s – Look Fabulous Forever

I wanted to share a couple of really good new items that have been added to my make up bag, so I thought I’d write and film a step by step guide on how I create my quick daily understated look.

I’m a huge fan of the Look Fabulous Forever brand and have enjoyed watching it grow. Rapidly! I’m not at all surprised though, from the moment I clapped eyes on the website with easy to understand makeup tutorials and then being able to create the looks with items from the brand.

But that’s not all. The  Look Fabulous Forever brand has been created for us more mature women who suffer from different makeup dilemmas as opposed to a twenty-year-old. Designed for a more mature skin. They’ve kindly given readers a 20% off code here too. So if you read or watch the video and you want to try something new, add the code given at the end of this post.

Each Item that I’ve tried from the brand has been great, you may have seen my last post featuring the Eye Prime? I couldn’t be without that now!

 

A quick and easy natural  make up for daytime

I’m adding all the tools and makeup that I’ve used for this natural look. It actually looks like there’s a lot involved but this application takes me around ten minutes on a daily basis. Yes, I’m using a couple of extras, but they resolve things that I don’t like about my skin (dark eyelids and lined lips) especially a couple of broken veins that I have and that dreaded pigmentation that we older women get.

After applying the Smooth Like Silk face prime, I’m adding my first new addition to my make up. Light Look Beauty Balm

After applying the Smooth Like Silk Face Prime, I’m adding my first new addition to my makeup. Light Look Beauty Balm.

This is a really light moisture balanced balm, quick and easy to apply it sits nicely on the skin with the primer. It lasts well through the day too. Good coverage but not heavy. It doesn’t sink into my wrinkles and make them more visible, this is something I’ve had to be careful of the last couple of years.  I prefer something light all over and then cover the bad bits with concealer.

You can see this colour is quite dark against my skin but it blends really well. You can see so much more via the video that I’ve added actually applying this daily look.

Eyes

 

LFF Brow Shape – No Shimmer Eye Shade Cream – No Shimmer Eye Shade Cocco –  LFF Lithe Lash Mascara

 

 

Next, I apply one of my favourite make up finds of the year. The  LFF Smooth Out Eye Prime. This works like a treat on my pinky/mauve darkened eyelids and really brightens the skin. This also stops your eye make up from creasing too. I totally recommend a try of this ladies if your eyelids have darkened like mine.

 

 

 

I apply some Bring Back Brow Shape next. This is like the finest of eyeliners. You can literally paint on hairs with this and it’s great for those that have sparse eyebrows. Luckily I don’t have that problem but this adds extra shape for me. Once dry I brush in for more shape

 

 

I apply a quick brush of No Shimmer Eye Shade  in the shade of cream. I always apply a light dusting all over for brightness to make my eyes pop, it just really brightens them up.

With the Wedge Shadow Brush, I apply a line of No Shimmer Eye Shade in Cocoa. My eyelashes are very sparse and I feel a fine line along the lash line with added mascara really helps. It actually makes it look like I have more lashes than I do!

 

 

The faces we pull when putting on make up!

 

Lips

Look Fabulous Forever Lip Prime

LFF Never Feather Lip Prime – Lustrous Colour Lipstick

 

Now onto my next genius product. The Never Feather Lip Prime . My lips are starting to get those dreaded sunken lines and I was amazed after trying this primer. The lines seem less noticeable after applying and the lipstick is warned off from bleeding into them. I apply a light tap of the applicator to the very top and bottom of the lips and then just gently glide my finger to smooth it over the lips. I wait a couple of minutes to let it set before applying the lipstick.

 

 

A precise line is applied with the lip brush. I’m a lip pencil fan and was a bit dubious about the precision I would achieve at first not using one. But the brush doesn’t splay out at all, so you get a really good clean line. I’m wondering if that’s where I’ve been going wrong? By using a pencil? Maybe it’s too dry and sinking into the lines? I’m really happy with the outcome of the Never Feather and lipstick together applied this way.

Bronze

 

Finishing the look off with my Look Fabulous Forever Enduring Summer Bronze. . I like this because it has no shimmer in it at all. I use this constantly summer or winter, I prefer the colour tone of bronze to a pink blusher.

 

Voila!

    You look great as usual Laurie. I don’t tend to wear make up but I do like the ‘not really there’ look. 🙂
    Thanks for linking to #pocolo

    Great review Laurie and you make it all look so effortless. A couple of products have caught my eye so am going to pop over for a look. Thanks for sharing. #TweensTeensBeyond

    I’m fascinated for the idea of a primer, but find that too much on my skin begins to become grainy. I’m sure there are solutions.

    The results look great, Laurie. Thanks for sharing the detail about what you used and how, and thanks for linking up with #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty. I’ll share on social media.

    I love your makeup look. I used to use primer all of the time and have gotten away from using it.

    I have been doing my eyes and skin care the same way for years and years and years. It’s fast. It’s efficient. It’s also time to update. Mature skin takes a little more care and a slightly different approach. thanks for the tips, especially the lip smoother.

    I love seeing and learning about your make-up routine, Laurie. I’d have to practice to do that in ten minutes, though. You’re looking totally gorgeous there! xxx
