Beauty Muse – Michelle Keegan

The British stunning beauty – Michelle Keegan is more than a stunner; she is a Beauty Muse and she knows it!

 

 

I am not a fan of Coronation Street so I have never seen Michelle Keegan on TV, and I know nothing about her, except for the fact that she is married to Mark Wright, but I think she is a true beauty. I love her facial features. I think she has a natural beautiful face, and her hair always looks good.

Keegan was nice and generous enough to share some of her beauty tips in her interview with Cosmopolitan Magazine, and I have some of her beauty tips below:

 

Skipping Makeup

“I prefer wearing no makeup anyway, because I like the contrast when you go out at night and you look different. I actually feel more confident with less makeup than I do with makeup on. I don’t know if it’s because I was playing Tina (on Coronation Street) for 7 years and I didn’t wear makeup at work, that I just got used to it.”

 

Her Makeup Essentials

“My lashes are Ardells, I use the strip lashes. On my brows I use HD Brows products and get them threaded by them too. I like the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser because that’s also got an SPF in it and foundation-wise I like NARS and Giorgio Armani for night.”

 

 

I agree with her tips, especially the skipping makeup bit. I only wear makeup when I absolutely HAVE to. I won’t want to go back to the days when I wore layers of makeup every single day. Looking back now, it felt like a chore, and my skin was all over the place.

Product Review – Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder

I tried a Laura Mercier product – a Sexy Lips Sheer Lipstick some months ago, and I liked it a lot. Since then, I have been on the lookout for other Laura Mercier products. I needed a setting powder, so I decided to try the Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder and I am glad I did. I was super impressed.

I love trying new beauty products. It is always a good feeling when I come across a beauty product I like. It does not happen every time but when it does, I make sure I hold on to that product. And I usually write a review post too so all my readers know all about it. I have a couple of beauty products I will be reviewing in the next few months and I can’t wait to tell you all about them. I recently came across some Korean BB creams, so reviews will be coming on those at some point. But back to this review, here is a brief description of this setting powder –

This convenient pressed powder version of our best-selling Translucent Loose Setting Powder. It feels luxuriously dense in the compact, feels silky-light and refined on your skin. It applies evenly and blends effortlessly.

I was very happy with this product description. I bought it online so I had the opportunity to read it as well as the various reviews. So I had a good idea of what to expect. I didn’t have to worry about getting the right shade, so buying online was the best option for me.

Product Review: Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation & Laura Mercier Lipstick

I am slowly turning to a beauty/makeup junkie, I know! But I can’t resist trying out new products. I love exploring, so the fashion and beauty world is like my playground.  I don’t think I will ever get tired of reviewing products. I can see myself doing this for a very long time……

Estee Lauder Double Wear Image

I reviewed the famous Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in a Rich Cocoa shade some days ago and I have been eager to tell you all about it. I am always in the pursuit of the next best foundation to try. I think the foundation is the base of the makeup, so I think it is very important to pay attention to the base/foundation, so you get the entire makeup right.

Here is what Estee Lauder has to say about this product:

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10
Keeps skin looking fabulous, breathing comfortably through heat, humidity and activity without changing colour, fading or coming off on clothes. Natural matte finish and SPF10 sunscreen to protect skin.
