Achieving an Express Makeup look with Sormé Treatment Cosmetics June 14, 2017 07:00

 Applying makeup is very personal and in this modern day and age it needs to be quick, long lasting (so you don’t need to worry about it during the day) and easy to touch up. You want to look well-groomed and fabulously natural. The aim is to create a brighter, fresher appearance with multitasking formulas containing hydrating, anti-aging, skin brightening ingredients and 2-in-1 products that are time-savers.

Here are just 5 essential products to help you achieve an express professional result:

Let’s get started with foundation – we recommend our Treat and Tint Skin Perfecting BB Cream containing Argan oil for nourishing the skin, SPF 30 and a beautiful sheer cover. By using a BB Cream you are eliminating a moisturiser / primer and sun protection as it’s all included. This BB cream will give you a dewy look, and if required you can use a light powder to set it.

Beautiful Brows: Brows are HOT and the in thing! Well-shaped eyebrows can make a real difference to your look and take years off! They frame the face, open it up, and give the eyes definition. Have your brows shaped and tinted professionally by a brow specialist and from there you can maintain the shape yourself. Brow Pencil and Always Perfect Brows Shadow can fill in the gaps, by using short feathery strokes with the pencil or the angled brow brush and follow the pattern of the hair growth.

Luscious Lashes: No eyes are complete without a frame of perfectly defined lashes to flutter.  For every day, use a mascara to colour, volumise (Extreme Volumizing Mascara) or lengthen (Ultra Lash Lengthening Mascara) your lashes. Black mascara defines the eyes like nothing else and works with any look. Dark brown mascara is generally softer and more flattering for mature faces. Don’t forget the bottom lashes too!  Hold the wand vertically and sweep it from side to side over the lashes without touching your face.

Charming Cheeks: A pretty flush creates youthful radiance and makes you glow with vitality. Blush enhances face shape and emphasizes the cheekbones. Ensure that you choose a colour that is similar to your natural flush colour to keep the look natural and soft. You can always mix colours to get the perfect shade and depth. Remember that it’s always easier to add colour than remove it, so start with a little and build up the intensity with our Mineral Botanicals Blush.

Perfect Pout: Lip colour is one of the most fun and accessible areas of makeup and also one of the most noticeable.  From pretty and natural through to classic and sophisticated, how we make up our lips can change our mood in an instant. Keep lips smooth and moisturised. Then choose a finish that you enjoy. Pale, glossy lips look full and healthy. They are flattering for most women, night or day. Choose a clear gloss or a slightly coloured one for a quick and easy on the go lip application. If you have a little extra time, colour your lips in with our Smearproof Lip Liner and then cover with our Lip Thick Plumping Lip Gloss. This will give your lipgloss a little more longevity and fullness.
