Femme Fetch: Fashion Fair Perfect Finish Concealer

Picked up a new concealer. I am going to commit to a foundation free summer, well mostly foundation free. With that in mind, I have been on the lookout for the ultimate concealer for the glamorous ethnic femme. I think I may have found it. 

The Fashion Fair Perfect Finish Concealer is amazing for these reasons:

  • 3 custom shades designed for ethnic skin- you can pick between 2 palettes and I get use out of all three shades. Highlight, contour, whatever, it’s so femme. 
  • matte finish- cuts down on oil, enough said. 
  • fragrance free- lessens the chance of breakouts

The concealer retails for $18 USD and is worth every penny when you essentially are getting 3 concealers in one. In the world of the ethnic femme custom mixing can get very pricey when going with other brands. I say love and support the brands that love and support you.

Femme Boy Goes Red- The Products

Hey girlies, want a super intense red lip like the one featured in my latest video. 

image

Rev Up the Red Products:

  • Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick Kate Moss Collection in Shade 01- this stuff is highly pigmented and goes on smooth with a creamy, rich finish. Shade 01 is an almost universally flattering red, will read a bit deep and vampy on lighter skin. 
  • MAC Lip Pencil in Mahogany- a brownish-red that works wonders for dark girls trying to get the ultimate red lip. Mahogany has great transformative abitly also. For my lighter ladies, try mixing it with a paler pink shade. 
  • Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Brazen- one of the most intense and vibrant pigments available in cream form. Not for the timid. Works wonders on lips, I placed a bit right on center of my lips to to add dimension.

Femme Fetch: Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream SPF30 -Dark Spot Correcting

I’m already a huge fan of tinted moisturizers, correcting creams, beauty balms, and any cosmetic aids assisting in fooling the world;Smashbox definitely feeds into this obsession. So let’s get to it.

So Femme-

  • light, buildable coverage great for everyday
  • great as primer under foundation
  • a little goes a long way
  • SPF!!!!! WE LOVE SPF!!!!
  • dark spot correcting.
  • matte/semi-matte finish

So NOT-

  • 5 shades-the blend ability and light formula make the shades work for many, but us dark girls once again don’t get the benefit of this. Would love maybe a warmer,”Deep Dark”  shade not just “Dark”.

Multi-taskers are the future of makeup and I believe Smashbox understands that more than most cosmetic brands. The Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream appears to fade discoloration slightly, but be sure to keep up a good skincare regimen also. Think of this product as an aid, NOT a solution.
