Beauty has many many secrets! And she just loves giving you the 4-11 on all of it. There's no detail that she won't tell you about a brand, how to use it, or where to get it! Come along with her for the Beauty Industries most up-to-date secrets!
Beauty Says: To say that Eve Lom’s newest edition of complexion products is ‘radiance perfecting’ is an understatement. Traditionally known since 1985 for her cleanser, and skincare range that followed suit, Eve Lom has become one of the beacon’s of light when it comes to skincare brands. This February the brand has gone the extra mile by harnessing the power of botanical stem cells and put it into a make-up range that not only minimises imperfections, but also goes to hydrate, firm and protect. I’m in love with this range and have to give you the 4-1-1….
I had first used this range without the primer to see and prove to myself just how hydrating the product could be. I did this because often I am disappointed by the hype of new launch products that claim ‘hydration’. Often, the case is that they feel good when you first put them on but as the day goes by they can not wear as well. At the end of my first day of trial I was mighty impressed with the results and strength of this particular range. The skin not only looked flawless but also exhumed a natural glow and brightness. I have tested these products in the soaring temperatures of L.A, as well, and let me tell you can they stand the heat! During a whole day at Universal studio’s and on rides all day, my make-up did not shift or melt. I have had numerous compliments of how beautiful and smooth my skin looked and everywhere everyone is wondering what I have been using.
Here are the key pieces I’ve used and how I’ve found using them:
Flawless Radiance Primer: I start with The Flawless Radiance Primer. A dallop of the size of a 5p coin will do. The secret behind this little number is that Eve Lom puts in BerryFlux Vita which goes deep to moisturise and prepare the skin to take in the pigments of the foundation. There is also Sand Lily Extract in it to brighten, and niacinamide to strengthen the skin. My top tip: Do not try to use too much of the primer because you like the soft texture or the way it glides on your skin-remember, less is more! £40.
Radiance Lift Foundation: There are 15 shades in this foundation, and shades to 100% match every skin tone. My perfect match is #3-Ecru. There is SPF15 in this foundation and again BerryFlux Vita to moisturise. The lifting part comes in it containing Para Cress Flower extract. When I smooth the foundation over and work it into the skin it sinks in immediately, and then almost disappears as immediately in a powder texture. Without using concealer, it conceals on it’s own most imperfections, so make sure you only touch up with concealer for areas like under eyes only once you have used the foundation. £50
Brilliant Cover Concealer: Coming in 6 shades this concealer disguises blemishes and other imperfections. It contains age-defying sea fennel which encourages cellular renewal. This is exceptionally good news for those who are looking to heal blemises as well. The formula also is light-diffusing so it gives a soft-focus effect. My top tip to use this is in areas underneath the eyes and around the nose area. I also urge you to try it on your eyelids as it prevents shifting of eye make-up too! £30
Sheer Radiance Translucent Powder: Now what I truly love about this powder is that it that it has a built in brush-this is incredibly easy to carry for travel or in the handbag everyday. I dust this all over once I have applied the Radiance Lift Foundation. It gives the skin not only a transparent finish but also encourages skin elasticity and again a hydration. These qualities are rare in powders and throughout the day I have found this powder to not be drying or cakey. Comes in 1 transparent shade for all! £42.
Golden Radiance Bronzing Power: Finally, the one final touch and my favourite next in line to the Radiance Lift Foundation is the Bronzer. It comes in 2 shadesSunrise, and Sunset. I would recommend Sunset for the girls who like to tan or use fake tan products. Otherwise, most will be good withSunrise. Again, the bronzing power is built into the brush. Be sure to gently dust the cheekbone area, forehead, and chin, as the bronzer can appear too dark if you apply too much. The glow from this bronzer can not be compared to any other so for those who have had a hard time finding the right bronzer, definitely give this a go. With the same key ingredients which give the skin elasticity and moisture, can you lose with this? I think not….£42.
The verdict is in ladies, Eve Lom’s new Radiance Perfecting Complexion Products are this season’s answer to new skin! Be sure to look into other options in the range too such as the Light Illusion Concealer, Radiance Perfected Tinted Moisturiser, and Natural Radiance Mineral Poweder Foundation.
