The Base – prime or prep make-up

0

I am not a make-up girl, although I am obsessed with colours, textures, little jars and boxes. Some summers ago I started to understand that make-up is not the only thing that gives you the glow, a defined eye or a rosy cheek. It is all about how you start, how you prep and prime your face, body, hair and nails.

I experimented a bit with lighter colours of cheek powder, primers and base coats and found out that during the high summer months I do not need much more. I give my skin a rest, a perfect treat and get all the benefits.

Have a look into my make-up pouch

TOM FORD Bronzing Powder
I like the one which comes with a matte finish (it also exists in a shimmery version). I use it not only all over my face but also on décolleté and legs. Once the summer is over I know I will probably not use it anymore, so I can be generous!
