Ready for Your Close Up


As the weather gets warmer I don’t know about you but I like to take the opportunity to let my skin breathe a little. Whether it’s ditching the high coverage foundation in favour of a BB cream or favouring my mascara instead of layers of eyeshadow on a day to day basis I love the feeling of sun on my skin (with some SPF preparation of course!).

This summer there is one product I will undoubtedly be going to in my search for fresh looking skin – the new Clarins Opalescence Face & Blush Powder.

First of all I have to stress just how beautiful the packaging is. With a gorgeous holographic lid it oozes summer-freshness, oh and looks great in your make up bag!

The powder itself is composed of 3 tones; a deep ash brown, light pink and neutral. Together they freshen the face, evening out your skin tone. Used alone the ash brown doubles up as a great contour shade, whilst the pink makes for a great blush. Oh and don't be put off by the golden shimmer, this is simply for decoration and doesn't come off onto your skin. In fact after first application it disappears from the pan completely!

I’ve fallen head over heels for this powder and if any of the other Opalescence range is even half as good I’m sold.
