* this is not a sponsored post and I am most certainly not a makeup blogger! I’m just sharing what has worked for me lately. That, and I am avoiding having to think about writing any kind of meaningful post while life is feeling a bit more difficult than usual late.
How awesome are photo filters? I decided I was going to do a “progression” of a selfie, starting with the blank canvas. I’m pretty much of the age now when I should be wearing makeup every day. My complexion is blotchy and the age spots are rapidly multiplying. I have never been a big makeup wearer. I would put some on for special occasions, but even then it was just foundation, eye shadow and lippy. I wouldn’t bother with eyeliner or mascara because it was too much of PITA to take off at night. Not only that, but when I did wear makeup, my face would break out. But I have finally got my act together and got a half decent skin regime each night and morning, and I’ve found some makeup that I am absolutely loving, by Rimmel London.
Without further ado, here is my Evolution of a Profile Pic:
Step 2: Apply makeup! I’ve used Maybelline primer, Rimmel London BB Cream, Rimmel Stay Matte liquid mouse foundation, l’acura blush, Stefan eye shadow and mascara, an eyeliner and a dark lippy. I’ve also used my eyeliner to fill in my eyebrows. I’ve always avoided blush for fear of using too much and looking like a clown. Getting the right balance is tricky!
Step 3: Apply a filter and share on all your favourite social media! I’m not entirely sure which one this particular one is, but it’s probably from the Little Moments app by Chantelle from Fat Mum Slim. If you don’t have her app yet, get it, NOW. What are you waiting for?
If you can’t get a professional to take pics, then filtered-selfies are the next best thing, I think! What selfie tips do you have?
