My friend, Anita, is a Mary Kay consultant, and she offered to have a bit of a pamper day with me where I could try out some of the products and have a bit of fun.
I don’t usually use foundation on a day to day basis, but if I give myself enough time, I do like to wear it for special occasions, so it was good to try out some different techniques and get a bit of practice in. I used the primer, which had a really nice silky feeling that ended with an almost powder finish; then a light foundation cream, and finished with a highlighting pen to hide any dark areas or spots. The highlighting pen has pigments in it that catch the light and draw your eye, so you can use it to do some light contouring as well. I also put on a light touch of blush.
We opted for a silver and blue eye makeup combination and I must say, the eyeshadows are really lovely to work with – very smooth and shimmery with lots of pigment. I also used a navy cream eyeliner and plumped up my eyelashes with the lash primer and mascara. The mascara had a really great brush that was excellent for getting right into the root of the lashes and also picking out the delicate lower ones.
The final touch was to line my lips and then fill them in with a lovely, neutral lip colour.
I’m quite happy with how it all turned out, and I’d definitely recommend you give Mary Kay makeup a try if you haven’t already.
