When I visited the Dubai Film Festival VIP lounge, I was lucky enough to talk to the lovely girls from, Make up Forever and find out a bit more about their Ultra HD items and the best way to use them. When I was told that this stuff makes you look amazing in photos, I was thrilled and scared all at the same time. Whilst my little heart jumped for joy at my close up instagram selfies with my two year old might cease to resemble ET, I know it is very hard to find make-up coverage that suits photos vs real life. Usually the amount you need to look ‘natural’ in a photo actually means that you look like Liberace to anyone who sees you up close.
With everything is HD nowadays, high def is not always a positive. Whilst watching a basket ball game in HD is superb, watching the close ups of some cast members of Desperate Housewives might not be as appealing.
Armed with their Invisible Foundation and Invisible Cover Stick Foundation and 3 professional brushes, I set off to try it out in various formats. Day, night, glam, red-carpet ready.
It works! I love it! It’s amazing how these 2 products can give you versatility and looks that work with your lifestyle. 90% of the time I just want to look natural, my best, but natural. The Invisible Cover Foundation goes on like silk (because of using with their professional brushes). My skin looked flawless, the coverage was exactly what I was looking for. This foundation camouflages pores, blemishes, and fine lines that look pronounced through a lens or under harsh lights, but the formula is lightweight enough to blend in with your skin instead of covering it like a mask.
I must say a big that you to the woman who recommended the correct shade for me, I am rarely able to match my skin tone and am delighted with this match. The Stick Foundation allowed me to add a little va va voom for when I wanted to look more glam. Just a touch on the cheek bones and forehead (again blended with their professional brushes) transformed the look for day to night.
My only advice… is to run out and buy it now. If you are a dab-hand at make-up and can do a lot more than I can, then this is for you – you will be able to create so many fabulous looks. Equally, if you are a girl on the go or a mum with no time, just 2 mins using this will make you smile.
