Reviewing "Fabulous Prime"
What are primers ?
Primers are fairly new products that have recently been introduced into makeup ranges to camouflage common signs of ageing. Primers smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and fill open pores, giving the skin a smoother, silkier, younger feel and look.
How to apply "Fabulous Prime"
Fabulous Prime is a primer specifically made for the face. Apply after the application of your moisturiser (make sure you leave a few minutes for your moisturiser to soak in) and before the application of your foundation. Start by putting a small amount on your finger tips and lightly apply moving from the centre of your face, using upwards and outwards movements.
There is an excellent tutorial on youtube that actually shows you how to apply this product.
Feel good after fifty's product review:
This product is rather amazing. It looks invisible and feels like silk. It instantly changed the feel of my skin when I applied it. It smoothed on incredibly easily and my fine lines and wrinkles were instantly diminished. It really did make me look younger! It was really hot when I was applying my makeup and after applying foundation on top of the fabulous prime I needed to dab my face with a dry tissue to cool off, the primer held the makeup in place, and the tissue was practically spotless. I had a really nice matt finish to my makeup which looked beautifully natural. I asked my husband what he thought as he really doesn't like heavy makeup and I had his enthusiastic seal of approval too!
First things first: Packaging
When you are ordering goods from the internet, packaging is important. The "Look Fabulous Forever" makeup range arrived in a really sturdy silver padded envelope, that was extremely well sealed. No problems with breakage here, everything inside was in perfect condition. This is important as we are all far to busy (aren't we) to waste time sending items back! However, the returns address is very clearly marked on the back of the envelope so you feel, it there had been a mishap during transportation, you would know immediately where to return your package. Inside the makeup was tissue wrapped in a chic thick paper black carrier, so it would make an ideal present for a friend. The bag is sturdy enough to recycle and use again for another purpose, something I love to do in this throw away world.
The makeup is well labeled and stylishly packaged in blue and silver and inside it's stored in chic, easily manageable containers.
When I saw an advert for "Look Fabulous Forever" make up, something inspired me to click on it!
I ended up watching a few of Trica Cusden's (the managing director at LFF makeup) tutorials, and I was fascinated to discover some new techniques for applying makeup, along with a presentation especially geared to older women.
Something I particularly liked was that Trica was using women who weren't models to demonstrate her makeup techniques.
This instantly helps one feel more connected to what she is saying and gives a realistic visual of the results you can attain when applying the makeup. Some of these women were long standing friends which I thought was a lovely idea,an idea I also employ on the Feel Good After Fifty website. Trica is so natural and genuine that I felt for the first time that it would be interesting to review this makeup brand.
