Simple & Beautiful Makeup w/ 3 Amazing Products!
If you're looking for a few essential makeup products to finish the summer with a fresh look and take with you into the fall, L'Oreal has just the items for a simple and beautiful look: Magic Skin Anti-Redness BB Cream, Miss Manga Mascara, and the Glossy Balm.
During the summer months, and yes it still is summer (August is not over yet!), I don't typically don't wear foundation as it feels too heavy on my skin. Instead, I use either a tinted moisturizer or a BB/CC Cream - these are great for light coverage and a fresh-faced look. L'Oreal offers a few BB Creams, one of which is the Magic Skin Beautifier Anti-Redness BB Cream. So how does it work? This BB Cream includes "Beautifying Beads" that are encapsulated with color-transforming pigments that counteract redness. It starts out green and as you apply (or even rub in your hand), it transforms to a universal skin tone shade that reduces the look of redness, which is pretty neat to watch! On top of the anti-redness benefits, this BB also works to even skin tone and hydrate for a smooth, bare finish. Just for fair warning, although it is pretty cool to see this BB transform to a universal shade, I would be tentative to use it if you have fair skin. My skin is quite fair and the shade was a little too dark for my preference. Other than that, this BB cream is lightweight and perfect for warmer weather.
The second product I like to use in this L’Oreal beauty look is the Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara. For bold, stand out lashes I turn to this mascara. It features the 360 Flexor Brush, a brush that I have not used before in mascara, but it starts wide towards the handle and finishes at a thinner point. This differentiation in size of the brush really helps grab onto even the smallest lashes for even application and bolder lashes. For an everyday, fresh look, I use a neutral eye shadow and finish with this mascara.
To complete the makeup look, I use the L’Oreal Glossy Balm in Ginger Candy 210. This gloss is great for a little color and conditioning lips. You won’t feel like you’re wearing a gloss or a lipstick, more like a balm which is great to keep your lips hydrated! The Ginger Candy is more subtle but adds just the right amount of color for a fresh-faced makeup look. If you want to bring out the color further, I apply a lip liner before the glossy balm. I use this glossy balm all the time, day or night - it works with so many makeup looks!
When I really want to enhance these few products, I try to achieve a dewy complexion (as best I can) by dutifully following a skincare regime (specifically using a scrub followed by a serum and moisturizer) to keep my complexion as clean and hydrated as possible. If I can achieve a fresh, hydrated look through my skincare, it helps these products take my look to the next level. I love a simple and elegant makeup look and these L’Oreal products add just the right touch to make that happen!
