Need something to make my pale, tired face look better! Going shopping this morning - any suggestions please?
Hi, I'm 42 and my skin is pale & becoming drier. Without make up I look really tired & washed out. I want to have a healthy glow. I've looked online but there are so many products I don't know what to go for. I prefer a natural look & I like the idea of something I can sweep over my whole face to look healthy but not glittery or too bronzed.
I have a Debenhams voucher and don't mind spending it on make up as long it does the job and is worth the money. I'm going shopping this morning.
Please could anyone suggest something out of the vast range of products?
Have a good look at your skincare routine. Also if you are very pale and dry your diet may be lacking. In terms of make up products I always think a good natural bronzer, an illuminating product and cream blush work wonders.
Hourglass ambient powder palette, or far more economical, the elf illuminating palette. Both will give a beautiful glow, without drying out the skin.
Or an illuminating primer. I hear loreal do one with good reviews, can't remember the name, sorry. I have no need for these, as I would glow brighter than any star with my oily skin. I do love a good primer though, and it's essential before my foundation.
This garnier primer is a very moisturising one, that I use when my skin is dehydrated and flaky. It seems to brighten and blur my skin.
