I have mentioned quite a few times here on my blog that I'm really not a huge make-up person. I only wear a full make-up once a week or more sometimes during a photoshoot. That does not mean to say though that I can't use a good make-up. I am constantly on the look out for good cosmetic brands so when there an opportunity came up to try Make-Up For Ever, I'm in!
I was sent some items from their HD collection including the Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation in liquid, the Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation, Skin Equalizer, Artist Plexi Gloss, and a foundation brush.
The Ultra HD Collection is supposedly for film and TV and makes your skin look flawless and natural under the latest, super-focused 4K camera lens. Pretty cool, isn't it?
First, I applied the Skin Equalizer which is the primer. It comes in 10 different formulas and I got the green one which is the Redness Corrections. I really don't have problems with redness, unless my sun allergy attacks. Otherwise, I would have preferred the mattifying or the hydrating.
After that, I put on the Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation. According to Make-Up Forever's application techniques, I only need to put on 2 drops. However, I had to put more than that to satisfy the coverage that I want. Because it's supposed to be invisible under the camera, there's only slight to medium coverage. I guess it depends on the shade or amount of coverage that you prefer. The shade that I received was R210 which is pretty right on. My next step was to put on the Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation which is for contouring. They recommend 2-3 shades darker than the Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation. I received the shade R230. I put it on my cheeks, forehead, both sides of the nose and under jawline. It came out very subtle.
Once I was done with my coverage and contouring, I applied their Ultra HD Powder and it comes in white. Now, I'm not surprised with loosed white powder for face because I use it all the time. I always feel that liquid foundations are quite sticky (even in other brands) so this loosed powder is very much welcomed and needed.
Now I don't know about you ladies but I do my lips last. I guess it's the easiest and quickest. The Artist Plexi Gloss is a lot stickier for me than the other lip gloss that I've tried and currently using. I do feel though that it will last longer than regular lip gloss. I am more a lip gloss person than a lipstick and honestly, from all the Make Up Forever products I've tried thus far for this post, this Artist Plexi Gloss is my favorite. A small coat will do it unlike other lip gloss brands where you kinda have to put more than just one coat.
If you're doing a day look, the Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation is great. It looks natural and almost as if you don't have foundation on. But a powder for added coverage and touch-up is definitely recommended.
