|Wearing Clarins' Complexion Base only|
So I decided to give it another try, and I'm pleased with the results. Here's how I achieved this pink-themed, yet wearable make-up:
First, I applied The Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base (what a ridiculously long name!). I have the shade Rose 01 and I find it gives a good smooth and glowy base for foundation, without any glitter or OTT pearlescence.The photo, right, gives a good idea of what it does for my skin. I have not re-touched this, or the 'after' picture at the end.
Over this, I used Bourjois' Healthy Mix Serum Foundation in shade 51 (Vanille Clair). It's quite a nice, cheaper option that is readily available in the UK and probably in many other countries. It is light and low coverage, but does give a 'glow' to the skin which is what I wanted for this make-up to appear natural and pretty.
Now for the eye look:
