Make Up Store

Went for the course with Faith and got myself these 2 products because i think it'll serve me best in my daily makeup routine:

1) Quick Fix
A silicon emulsion formula that instantly removes all signs of aging. Works as a pre-makeup face primer that hydrates, smoothes and treats the skin while enhancing the look and wear of makeup. Contains an exclusive peptide complex that is clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The Quick Fix formula is enriched with a light-diffusing action to help create ultra soft, smooth and radiant looking skin. Clove, sandalwood and sage complex with antioxidant and calming properties.

Shanice's opinion: good investment because it can double up as a 'blending mixture' with my correctors and loose powders.

2) Wonder Kit
Make Up Store was the first makeup brand to launch mineral products. With mineral makeup you get 100 % pure makeup without preservatives and binding agents. The minerals work nurturing, calming and are anti inflammatory. The minerals also protect your skin from damaging sun rays. Other properties of the makeup concern its actual application, you decide whether you prefer more coverage or a soft and light base. Even though it looks like a powder it provides a flawless base filled with luster that minimizes fine lines.

Key ingredients

  • With Wonder Kit you get everything you need for a perfect base. The mineral products suit even the most sensitive skin type. The Kabuki brush is especially designed for the application of mineral powder. And the smaller brush Foundation Brush allows you to apply the mineral powder to narrow areas where you prefer a more covering base. You can also blend your mineral powder with Skin Serum; the result is a creamy and nurturing foundation. Wonder Kit comes in four different nuances: Sinai, Sahara, Gobi, and Namib. If you choose a mineral powder that is lighter than your own skin tone the powder works perfectly as a highlighter. Highlight is a technique that brings out facial parts and benefits. If you choose a darker nuance you can use the powder as shading and eye-shadow. Shading is a technique that enhances your natural facial shades and structures but also tones down facial parts.
  • Kit contains:
  • 4x wonder powder in different nuances
  • 1 Kabuki brush
  • 1 Foundation brush
Shanice's opinion: good investment because it is the ultimate all-in-one.

I needed to reinforce my techniques and get some burning questions answered.
Engaging course with the makeup artist. Elise was patient, friendly and wittily funny.
Burnt a hole in my pocket, but lets just say, it shall be worth it (:
