This week French Essence is thinking beauty… The ‘have to have’ Tom Ford Illuminating Primer.
It’s springtime and after the long winter months… our focus is on renewal and freshness.
How we apply our make-up… and what make-up we apply… can make all the difference to the appearance of our skin.
It’s not rocket science… but a little bit of knowledge can go a long way in this case.
Light, dewy, glowing, fresh… are the words that we ideally use when talking skin…
I wanted to mention primer again…
Nowhere near as dramatic as a nip and tuck.
I have never been much into primer… could never really understand the benefits… but...
My make-up guru swears by it and has converted me.
Primer does make a difference… fills, covers and smooths… “you wouldn’t paint a wall without all the preparation” she says… I can’t argue with that logic.
She has introduced me to the Tom Ford Illuminating Primer… and as good as my Laura Mercier is … I like this much better.
The “glow” is fantastic… looks totally natural… and better yet… it makes the skin feel heavenly.
Soft and silky.
Sometimes I wear it alone for that little extra something that looks like nothing…
The best part… I think this primer really does reduce the appearance of lines and evens out the texture of the skin.
It’s very surprising… *smile* … miraculous even…
Ok, slight exaggeration… because we all know miracles are tricky, especially on the face… and I am not that easily impressed … but this product is brilliant.
I thought you might like to know…
To Light Up
* In preparation, exfoliate the face and splash with toner
* Apply serum and moisturiser… allow to sink in for 5-10 mins
* Next the Tom Ford Illuminating Primer… blend in with the fingertips… the tiniest amount… a little bit goes a very long way
( for the perfect blend... pump the illuminator onto the back of the hand and apply in a downward motion)
And that’s it… ready, set and go for foundation… Tips and tricks about this later in the week… xv
