This month was quite quick and really hot here in Greece, although we all have some favourites to share…Thes are my June Faves:

KIKO MILANO Flawless Fussion Bronzer Powder in shade “05”, Kathleenlights introduce me to this bronzer and I am glad she did! It is a great bronzer with lots of potentials and shades! 10.90 euro

Look for a Natural Looking Foundation, with the right for you Shade! Your skin color changes from summer to winter! You should try applying your new makeup under natural light. Tip: Match your makeup shade with your Chest Shade “Yes”, because when you see the whole picture it may look different sometimes!
Nowadays the Technology has done great things with makeup, so it is possible to find makeup even to cover wrinkles and imperfections in a natural looking way! Fade your Flaws!
Ensure that your skin is cleaned and prepped before the makeup application, if you have a bad foundation then your whole makeup will look bad! Wash your face with your cleanser to remove excess oils and apply your moisturizer. If you have oily skin with pores you should definitely wear a primer, so your makeup last Longer!
For a Flawless Base apply your foundation with a good Brush (there are so many on the market, I currently use Real Techniques Expert Face Brush ) Make circular moves!
Your Foundation isn’t your Concealer, Foundation even our skin color. Concealer is either for Blemishes or any imperfections.
Have a Healthy Glow, add Bronzer with a satin finish. You can definitely wear a matte bronzer to give depth to your face! If you are going for a contoured look, bronze your face with a liquid matte bronzer( Use: a darker makeup or concealer)!
Have a dewy Finish and longwear makeup! Use a Face Setting Spray ( a good and cheap one is Nyx setting spray dewy finish)!
These were my simple steps of choosing makeup until using it! I hope I helped and if you have any questions you can ask me!
The Makeup I will refer to is the Bourjoir Healthy Mix foundation Serum!
This Makeup works great especially for winter! On the product is mentioned that it lasts 16h and that gives to the skin a radiance. It is hypoallergenic and rich in Vitamins and fruits, it also has a nice smell (not heavy as other makeup). At the moment is one of my favourites and I suggest it !
Coverage: It has a Low to Medium coverage (Buildable), I use it with my Real Techniques Expert FaceBrush, which I Love! It feels great on my skin and it glides really smoothly!
It has a nice range of shades, I use 51 and 52 !!
Its Price is 13 pounds, for 30ml ((1fl.oz)
Conclusion:It is a very good Quality and Affordable Makeup, which worth the hype.
Tip: by it from asoswhen they have sales at a lower price !!!
So last week I was looking for some goodies and I bought a thing or two!!! One of them was the High Definition Powder , as you all may know the High Definition Powder in clear by ELF, considers to be a dupe of HD powder by Make-up Forever , I am not pretty sure with this version, because Make-up Forever has higher quality products in general, and Make-up Forever is a brand specificated only in make-up products!
There is a debate about these two … But if we consider their price , Elf one wins the battle !!! 6$ vs 34$ !
I didn’t want to buy the clear one, so I ended up with the Yellow toned powder~!
I used it for 1 week now every single day, and I Love it , it certainly has become one of my favorites powders! It has a nice and loose consistency , and it feels great on my skin!
Here is a swatch:
I used with the Elf Powder Brush after my foundation, all over my face and my eyes, It glides very easy . It also makes my face smoother, although I have a dry skin it feels great. I have to mention that it lasts on my face for 4-5 hours , I believe that its duration is pretty good and If I want I can fresh it up! I will include it on a my daily Make-up routine and I will Have a Postabout it, pretty soon!
You should definitely Try it, It is a value for money product !!!
