I was recently asked if I'd like to check out the Sali Hughes for Clarins make up tutorials. Sali has made three easy videos with Clarins to teach you how to recreate a look in either 5, 10 or 15 minute slots. I was really taken by how easy the five minute tutorial was and how fresh faced a look it was so wanted to try this out for myself.
I've never previously owned any Clarins make up although I've heard about the BB Cream via blogs and interviews as people seem to swear by it! I was also interested in the fact that Sali was only using her fingers to apply her make up as I'm used to doing my own with a brush (for foundation and blusher).
The top shot is of the products needed for the ten minute routine and the third image is for the look I wanted to create. This five minute make up routine is perfect for anyone who doesn't have a whole bunch of time to spend on getting ready. Pre motherhood I used to spend a good half an hour getting ready for work but since having Wilf I tend to spend less time as there is always something that needs to be done!
I have to say I was really impressed with the BB Cream it had a brilliant texture to it and was easy to apply with just your finger tips. My second favourite item was the blush, I've only ever used a powdered blush before and I love the creaminess to these ones. I chose a peach colour as I usually go for darker colours and fancied a brighter look. The mascara is also rather brilliant and has a very fine brush so as not to result in clumps and leaves the eyelashes with a cleaner look. I always just do my top eyelashes as I feel like doing both looks a little 'doll' like.
The items I used were:
BB Cream in 01
Eclat Minute 02 (a champagne colour)
Multi Blush 01 - Peach
Instant Light Lip Perfecter - Rose Shimmer
Be Long Mascara
I'm so impressed with the coverage of these products and how light they feel. I'm totally saving them for my wedding make up too, eek!
