But I'm afraid it wasn't all rosy for me. The colour match basically did not match me at all!
They took a sample of my cheeks (both sides) and they matched me to one of the colours in the pinky Ivory family. Me, Ivory? No way. I did however test it and took a tiny bit and put it on my face and it was a definite NO!
So, as usual I had to go with my instincts and I matched me with Warm Beige. I believe it's a good match for this time of the year for me. The lady also checked with the gadget and she confirmed that it was one of he tones up according to my match.
So, disappointment aside I wanted to try and feel this foundation.
Ready for the real me? Ta dah...
Yes! This is me and my raw beauty!
I have normal to combination skin but sometimes I get dry patches. Lovely.
Also, (I'm sure you noticed) and have mayor hyperpigmentation issues mainly on my forehead and a bit around my eyes. This was ALL caused by sun damage. Horrible.
I'm getting it treated at Sk:n Clinic and I have high hopes for the treatment. I have 5 sessions to go and lots of treatment cream to apply yet. I should do a post on this!
I also notice that with my camera shows more imperfections than in real life.
It's so unforgiving and I'm sure the human eye can't see a lot of the tiny details.
It's not my favourite if honest and I'm not sure I would repurchase it.
I have way too many foundations and I can think of better options than this one. However, I would totally recommend you go and try it and get the feel. It is a nice foundation!
So, as I was getting ready for the day I might as well show you the FOTD :).
Let's start with the hair. Last night I had a go at rag curls. It consists of getting your hair around "rags". You end up with your hair in strips of rags that look like all bows around your hair. I used a clean old T-shirt which I cut into strips. It was fun and comfortable to sleep on.
The result is a bouncy 40's or even 50's wave if you brush it all out like me. I love the result but I had to do a lot of combing after I took the photo to get rid of the freeze. Also a bit of pomade was super helpful!
And I applied some minimal make-up (as I'm working from home today).
You can see now how the foundation set and it looks ok.
