Glittery Brown Smokes - Product Breakdown

Hey guys, so I'm back with a product breakdown for another look I posted  on my Instagram (@rukh_shak), hope you enjoy this post as well!

All about Orange Correctors

Hey guys, so in today's post I wanted to talk about colour correctors, more specifically, orange colour correctors and what I use them for. Now you can get various different types of orange corrector, they could be liquid or cream and can vary from being a bright orange or a more muted peachy orange shade, I've got a few different ones that I want to talk about today and these are products that I use quite regularly on myself as well.

Orange/peachy correctors can be used to help correct any dark areas around the face, e.g. dark circles, dark spots/marks or darkness around the mouth area - something that is very common with Asian skin. You apply the corrector first and then go in with your foundation/concealer. When applying orange correctors or any kind of correctors (e.g. green/purple), remember to only apply in the areas you need it - don't paint your whole face orange! - and always use a light hand, you don't need a thick/opaque layer of corrector - applying too much corrector may result in you having to a thicker layer of foundation to then cover up the corrector, which can leave your base looking and feeling cakey - just a very light thin layer of corrector should do the job!

Coty Airspun Translucent Face Powder - Review

So after seeing a lot of Youtube beauty gurus rave about this setting powder for such a long time, I decided I had to try it out for myself! I purchased mine off Amazon in the shade translucent, which is the original shade, there are however a few more shades available in this powder. The other colours available are; Translucent Extra Coverage, Honey Beige and Suntan, and these shades unlike the original will add a bit of extra coverage/colour to your base when applied.

Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation - Review

Hey guys, just wanted to review the Illamasqua Skin Base foundation for you today. I've been using this for well over a year now and I love it! I'm always switching up my base routine and trying out new foundations but this is one foundation that is a staple in my collection and I always come back to it.

I use the shade SB13 in this foundation and it is the perfect shade for me! (Just for reference - I'm NC44 in MAC foundations and use Syracuse in NARS foundations). It has a medium buildable coverage, it easily covers all my marks and redness and looks very flawless/full coverage, which is really surprising considering how lightweight this feels on my skin. I like to apply this using either a flat top buffing brush or a stippling brush, but it applies great with a blending sponge as well, so either the beauty blender or the real techniques sponge would be good to use.
