The Magic Of Make-Up

Hellooo,

So something a bit different today, I have decided that I would show the miracle that make-up can do to a very badly scarred face from lots of acne as well as a very yukky red and super oily face. I am no way in any way a make-up fanatic but I have picked up some really good products and tips since becoming a blogger and thanks to everyone's advices and reviews I am now happy with my overall daily look etc. Although in this post I have done make-up that I would probably wear on a night out rather than daily!

I never ever feel confident enough to leave the house without make-up, I even have to wear very minimal to the gym just because it isn't pretty so please be nice for the fact that I have bared my face for this post.

First of all I am going to start by showing what products were used:

Base


Cheeks


Eyebrows


Eyes


Lips


Final Look


Excuse my hair being up, I done this late afternoon on a pyjama day! Anyways, this is my half and half face, the no make-up side really doesn't show my real redness and patchiness - it isn't edited just the sunlight I think. I decided to do it this way for a full look at the difference and frankly I was even shocked myself! Because on a daily basis you don't get to see the comparison right next to each other like this. Took the other half a bit too long to notice when he came in from work, found it hilarious when I pointed it out though!


What do you think? :) Ever tried this to see the difference?

Love, Gemma xo

  3. I love your use of make-up here - doesn't look overdone at all. I love a both sides photo too! I don't always wear make-up, but as I've gotten older, I'm finding it makes me feel more confident when I do. And there ain't nothing wrong with that! ;)

    Looking good, lady! xx
