Alert! Alert! We have a new holy grail beauty product on our hands. It’s called Terrybly Densiliss, it’s now available at Space NK, and it’s going to put your face in a time machine.
I may have been a die hard BB cream lover since my days as a beauty editor, but By Terry‘s latest foundation release has me picking up my terribly neglected foundation brush once again. Terrybly Densiliss is a skin miracle. While there are both powerful wrinkle-fighting serums and skin-perfecting foundations in market, this is the first product that combines the two with finesse. Not just a sprinkling of overhyped beauty oil in a layer of cake, either. Instead, a powerful balance of ‘Mimetic Factor’ (a patented plant active ingredient that works on collagen synthesis) in a satin-finish liquid foundation that feels weightless on the skin.
Seeing it hard at work on a variety of faces and ages, the ten shades currently available also cover the ghostly pale-‘coloured’ (me) to the richest ebony skin tones, virtually deleting wrinkles and imperfections on contact. In fact, fans of Terry’s old school Lumiere Veloutee will fall in lust with this. It’s Lumiere Veloutee 2.0 and then some.
At £75, Terrybly Densiliss is certainly an investment…but small change for the promise of having 23-year-old skin for the long haul.
If you’ve somehow managed to the avoid the media frenzy, you may be interested in knowing that Kim Kardashian is getting married to Kris Humphries this weekend!
Since rumours are flying around that the Kurvaceous Kardashian (I had to do it) thinks her wedding will “be bigger than the royal wedding“, and I did a breakdown of Kate Middleton’s make-up pre-wedding, I figured a Kardashian wedding make-up tutorial (aka make-up guesstimation!) was in order.
Kim Kardashian’s three key make-up traits (seen in the photo at the end of the post) are as follows – smokey eye, false lashes, highlighting. Since we’re all not as lucky to have Mario Dediavanovic – King of the Smokey Eye and Kim Kardashian’s make-up artist – on hand, follow the simple steps below to create a flawless and photo-friendly look!
You’ve got to start with perfect skin. Though Kim Kardashian is constantly wearing liquid foundation, it blends seamlessly with her skin, so use a product like Make Up For Ever‘s HD Invisible Cover Foundation and touch up any blemishes or pigmentation still visible with MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer. Seal your perfect base with Clinique‘s Gentle Light Powder in Glow 3. The reflective pigments will ‘airbrush’ your skin in photos, but won’t wash you out.
Eyes! Because Miss Kardashian likes to wear a smokey eye even while working out, I didn’t want to stray too far from the ‘drama’ while keeping it fresher than a red carpet look (wedding photos last forever, after all). Highlight your inner corner, lid and browbone in Urban Decay Shimmer Eyeshadow in Midnight Cowgirl. Use a toffee tone with a hint of grey (Urban Decay Shimmer Eyeshadow in Sellout) to sculpt a smokey eye from your socket and above, continuing the same colour on your lower lash line. Use Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner on your upper lash line only, and pop natural-looking false eyelashes (my favourite are Mister Mascara‘s in Harrods) on top to really open up the look. I used Lash Power mascara, as well, as it is specially formulated not to run if the tears start flowing!
Fill in your eyebrows with NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in a shade slightly darker than to your hair colour. Don’t be heavy handed, as there is a lot of structure in your eye area already.
For your cheeks, use a Ramy Cosmetics Juicy Cheeks to highlight the top of your cheekbone and a warm, rosy mineral blush from your apples to your ears.
For lips, use a long-wearing lipstick, and line your lips with Borghese Longevita lipliner over the top. By lining after the initial application, it looks much more natural. For a perfectly plump pout – a Kardashian must have – apply lip gloss only in the center of the lips. Estee Lauder’s Lip Color Set gives you every other tool you need.
Spritz with Mist & Fix. You want it to last all day!
Obviously, I’m a million shades lighter than the Armenian goddess, so this is a look that can really work for everyone. Hopefully, you all will share your interpretations or guesstimates of her wedding look!
(Also, I’m hoping Kim Kardashian’s wedding dress looks like this! A flattering change from the norm.)
Since you are one post away from the chance to win a Premium Professional Makeup Kit from Sigma (worth $149), I thought the best way to prove product power was through a make-up tutorial! Inspired by Tulisa Contostavlos, the new judge of X Factor, I have created a step by step guide to a daytime version of her punchy, retro makeup. View Post
