Illamasqua – Gel Sculpt

I must admit, initially I was intimidated by a ‘liquid’ contour product as I had been steering clear of these in favour of the powder alternatives but I dare say my powder palette’s are going to take a backseat to this easy to use product!

The art of contouring is something I myself have not yet mastered. I have watched the likes of Kim K, Kristen Leanne and Jeffree Star show me what I am supposed to be doing that I have struggled endlessly to get it right. I have always ended up with unblended, dark lines across my face where the shadows are meant to fall instead of perfectly chiselled features like the faces of my makeup idols.

By November, it had become too much and there were only so many two-inch hairs I could pull out by hand, it was time to correct myself before I wrecked myself.

Lip Scrub – ing!

A little pot of sugary, flavoured goodness is all you need to exfoliate that soft lip skin and get rid of any hanging bits of unpleasantness.

For an amateur like me, applying a matte liquid lipstick is an art form in itself; the perfect application takes time, practice and a lot of concealer around the mouth to get the straightest of edges and cleanest of applications. There is however another step frequently omitted that would make your lipstick life that much easier in the future, one I cottoned onto a little later in life but something I felt absolutely necessary to share with you, this step requires a little bit of a lip scrub and a whole lot of restraint.
