Hero products: The Great Skin Cheat

 

And finally, I'm back with my favorite beauty posts! I know I've been behind on the blog, but if you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I've been busy relocating, rebranding, and mostly in the process of launching my own photography agency, which will be happening in spring 2018! All that said, as this being my first beauty post on the new site, I've decided to do something a little different...sharing one of my personal beauty secrets. 

終於,久違的彩妝愛用品文。休息了將近三個多月,一直在考慮要以分享什麼樣的主題給大家?這陣子忙著搬家,也順便清理一下自己的梳妝台,才想起之前比較常以品牌為發展進行撰文,像這樣主題性的好像比較少,決定來試試看,也歡迎你們在看完文章後說說你們想法,覺得這樣的文章實不實用。

This has been my fail-proof makeup routine of all times, every time when I use these particular products (especially the base & powders), I always have someone complimenting on my skin. Saying it looks so healthy and perfect. Though to be honest, I don't have that great skin, really! 

好的,今天要分享的其實算是我個人的小秘密,每次我只要將這些產品互相搭配,當天都會有人稱讚我皮膚看起來好好,雖然基本上我很少長痘子、粉刺之類,但長期睡眠不足的情況下,氣色有時候真的不行,所以皮膚好真的只是看起來(笑)。所以到底是那些產品讓我能小小作弊一下,快來看看吧!

 
 

THE BASE

When I think of perfect skin, I don't necessarily think of something flawless, instead I think of your skin being dewy, glowy and natural, despite having some minor blemish or even acnes. 

The base products I swear by are these foundations from Make Up Forever & Ellis Faas. I use the Water Blend Foundation almost religiously during warmer seasons, and as for the Skin Veil from Ellis Faas, its a perfect winter/hydrating foundation, as well as a medium-full coverage product.  Both of them are extremely natural looking, coming with a nice healthy glow. 

As for concealer, the cashmere burberry concealer is the only one I use. No matter how many other concealers I try, I alway end up going back to this one! It's so moisturisng, so easy to blend, great for those who have drier under eyes like me! 

 底妝部分

一個人皮膚好不好,我個人並不覺得代表「無暇」,反而是有光澤看起來保水度很夠,哪怕有點痘痘跟泛紅都沒關席。

說到最愛的底妝,粉底液的部分我最常用的是 Make Up Forver 的水粉霜和 Ellis Faas 裸膚柔紗粉底液。兩個都是裸妝、自然光澤型;Make Up Forever 我在夏天經常用,但由於我屬於乾性皮膚,所以到冬天就換成保濕比較強的 Ellis Faas(大家依自己的膚況或所在地進行條整)。後者的修飾和提亮度較高,但在台灣好像沒有賣,大家如果有機會在國外真的建議可以靠櫃試試看。

至於遮瑕呢,我唯一有一直在回購的就是 Burberry 的淨彩遮瑕筆。不管試過多少不同品,都還是會默默回來用這支(笑)很保濕,有點提亮,不卡粉,氣墊型的刷頭相對更好推開,推薦給跟我一樣眼下偏乾的人。

 
 

QUICK TIP: I LOVE USING THE ARTIS BRUSH TO BLEND MY FOUNDATIONS, AS WELL AS THE ORIGINAL BEAUTY BLENDER! 

小撇步:我習慣用 artis brush 和 beauty blender 美妝蛋,這兩款產品我用起來都我覺得用起來都很好推勻而且服貼度也ok!

SETTING

The setting powder is where the magic happens, bringing your skin from looking good to great (well, at least what I believe..). I've had my fair share of trial and error when it comes to powder, and these two are once again, the ones I can never live without (or should I repeat the word "swear by"?). 

First, the Givenchy loose powder! I use this on my t-zone because these are the places I get slightly oily during warmer weathers. I use a brush to press the products on my skin. Then it's the Ambient Light Palette by Hourglass. I'm in love with this one, I use it on my cheeks, actually just anywhere but the forehead and nose. It gives you radiant, and blurs some imperfection without making your face matte. 

蜜粉定妝

這真的是出國必備系列!我覺得選對蜜粉會有提升妝感,所以挑對粉質真的很重要,我真心試過很多不多品牌、開價專櫃都是,而這兩個絕對是心頭好。

首先紀梵希的四色蜜粉,這款我是用輕拍的方式上然後只上在 T 字部位,他對乾肌的控油效果是剛剛好的,不會有太乾的現象。接著是 Hourglass 三色蜜粉餅盤(在發現紀梵希前,她是頭號愛將),她很神奇,有隱形毛孔和讓膚況看起來更好的作用,只要用它,就算底妝不是剛剛那兩款,出門還是會收到稱讚(笑)Ambient Light Palette 是第一個系列,品牌後續出了很多不同組合跟限量款,但我還是最喜歡這個。

BRONZE, CONTOUR & SOME BLUSH

Now, this is where things started to get a bit fun. Bring out your favorite bronze, highlight & blush! I personally prefer the Guerlain Terracota bronzing powder because it looks most natural on my skin tone. Then Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder is an absolute winner, I LOVE IT SO MUCH! It gives your radiance as if it's glowing from your actual skin rather than the product. I've only got it a few months ago, and it has officially replaced my all other highlighters.

I'm currently obsessed with this Tom Ford blush in inhibition, it looks a bit pinky in the photos, though in really life its more of a nude/coral color. Last but not least, work on your eye area if you haven't, then you're all set! 

修容、打亮和腮紅

這部分大家就可以根據自己的喜好了。嬌蘭的修容餅台灣好像沒有進,我有一次摔裂了結果到處都找不到,選這款因為他最適合我的膚色,也是自然妝感型的,加上我自己下手真的很輕(笑)蘿拉蜜思的微整立體修容式(最淺色)也是推薦品,擁有它之後真的很少再拿別的打亮出來用了,光澤很美,亮片細緻,所以比起產品本身會覺得是自己的皮膚在發光。

腮紅的部分我比較沒有特別固定用的,Tom Ford 的 inhibition 是最近剛入手。照片看起來很粉,但它本身其實比較是淺淺的珊瑚色。最後,眼妝畫好選個唇膏就完成啦!
