I wear bronzer, blusher and mascara everyday. That's my quick fix everyday makeup regime.
I want or feel that I could look better with a bit of guidance and the right tools BUT I don't want all the faff of foundation, primer, powder etc.
I'm thinking of going to the beauty counters at Department stores and having a make over - so the question is, which cosmetic company would I best be seeing for a no fuss look? Bearing in mind I'm mid 40s
I love Mac products but would begin with Bobbi Brown as you can ease yourself in gently. Plus, every time I've been to Mac the girls have been a bit disinterested in helping me because I'm over the age of 18 and refuse to allow them to paint black eyebrows on me.
I hate the feeling of foundation on my face, however my current must have is the new Chanel Les Beiges foundation. It's very light, a tiny bit goes a loooong way and it gives pretty good coverage without making you look 'blank'.
FYI I never used to bother with primer, but I tried a different one and did a 'with' and 'without' over two days. My makeup lasted so much better when I used primer, so it's now a must-have for me.
