“I first prepped her skin and then matched her skin tone to CoverGirl Ready, Set Gorgeous Foundation in Warm Beige and began by buffing a thin layer all over her face and neck using a flat tipped, soft bristled kabuki style brush for a seamless airbrushed effect. I highlighted her under eye area and cheekbones with CoverGirl Ready, Set, Gorgeous Concealer in Light/mMdium.

I began her eye makeup by blending a warm brown shadow, CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Scorching Cocoa into the crease of her eyelids and a pearlescent white shadow CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Blazing White onto her eyelid and browbone for highlights. I also dusted some of that same pearlescent shadow onto the ridge of her cheekbones for an extra glow. I then created a sharp jet black cat eye using CoverGirl Bombshell Intensity Liner. I finished the eye look with several coats of CoverGirl Bombshell Volume Mascara.

I then sculpted her cheekbones using the darker shade from the CoverGirl Clean Glow Blush compact and added warmth to the apples of her cheeks with the paler peachier shades in the compact.

I completed the look by lining her lips with CoverGirl LipPerfection Lip Liner in Hot and the matching CoverGirl LipPerfection Lip Color shade in Hot 305. I topped the lipstick with a coat of CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Crystal Flame for a metallic sheen. Just before she left I dusted her with a touch of CoverGirl Ready, Set, Gorgeous Powder in light/medium to keep her looking fresh for the red carpet.”

CoverGirl is available at drugstores nationwide and drugstore.com.

Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream Review, Swatches and Photos

June 20th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Besides the OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tars, another winner I brought home from The Makeup Show Chicago 2013 was Smashbox Camera Ready Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Dark Spot Correcting CC Cream.

Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream

Similar to BB creams, a CC (short for color-correcting) cream is a tinted face product that is enriched with skincare benefits to even out skintone while improving skin condition. This one from Smashbox touts a formula that contains Octinoxate 7.5%, Octisalate 4.0%, Oxybenzone 2.5% and Titanium Dioxide 1.1% for sun protection and a blend of ingredients (Licorice Root Extract and Wheat Germ Extract to name a couple) to brighten the skin and fade dark spots, sun spots and post-acne marks. It can be worn alone or under foundation for more coverage.

The texture was creamy and a little thicker than a liquid foundation, just like most BB creams. It went on super lightweight and blended easily with both fingers and my favorite Crown Deluxe Double Sided Blender. Coverage was buildable and ran from light to medium. A light layer managed to cover up 2/3 of my imperfections and left behind a soft matte finish that felt and looked just like skin. I did, however, notice that it clung onto dry patches so make sure you exfoliate and moisturize well before hand. When worn without a setting powder on top, I also experienced a bit of shine on the T-zone after 4-5 hours.

Color selection wise, this was much better than your typical Asian BB cream which tends to only come in one or two shades. There are a total of five shades to choose from and the second lightest shade, Light, was a good match for my NC30 skin.

As for its skincare claims, I have yet to see any results (I have only been using the product for two weeks). However, the product has not broken me out or irritated my skin either.

Bottom line, the Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream is a great product that is quick and easy to use. Stay away if you have dry skin but otherwise, highly recommended for every day and for those with who do not require a lot of coverage.
