TUTORIAL: CHERRY BLOSSOM WINGED LINER

TUTORIAL: CHERRY BLOSSOM WINGED LINER

Another summer look! This time I took inspiration from the cherry blossom. I didn’t really know how I should do it, but I am really happy about how this turned out. If you don’t like flowers, then I don’t think this makeup look is anything for you hahaha. I will try to make some more summer makeup looks without flowers ūüėČ If you are interested in seeing how I created this look, then please keep on reading!

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used a bit of translucent powder to set it. I then wanted a pink shade in my crease, but I did not want something harsh which is why I used the Classic Blender Brush from Coastal Scents lightly dipped into the shade Love Letter from the Modern Renaissance Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills (*). On my lid, I applied the white shadow Snow Bunny from Coastal Scents with the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques.

As this is inspired by cherry blossoms, I wanted the winged liner to represent a part of the tree which is why I chose to make it brown. I used the NYX Cosmetics Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Scandalous (*) and applied the winged liner with the Small Angled Liner Brush from Coastal Scents. Underneath my lower lashline, I applied a mixture of two blushes (the two to the left on the bottom row) from the Makeup Revolution Blush Palette in All About Pink and used the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to apply it.

Now onto the flowers! I really hope you all like flowers, because I for some reason keep doing makeup looks with them even though I hate making them hahaha. Maybe I keep doing them because I love the finished look? But for the flowers, I started out by doing the petals with the NYX Cosmetics White Liquid Liner (*). As the petals of cherry blossoms are not all white but also pink, I applied some of the NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in Tokyo (*) to the white petals with a clean applicator of an NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner (*). To finish up the flowers, I applied a yellow dot in the middle of each of them with the NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner in Halo (*).

That is actually it for the eye makeup! Now finish up your makeup; I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (*) to my upper lashes.

I hope you enjoyed another summer look tutorial! Let me know if you have any requests for some other summer looks! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

HOW TO FIND THE BEST FOUNDATION FOR YOUR SKINTYPE

HOW TO FIND THE BEST FOUNDATION FOR YOUR SKINTYPE

Back in April, I wrote about how to find the perfect primer for your skin type, so now I thought it was time to go the next step and find the best foundation for skin type! As I also wrote in the primer post, is it important to know what skin type you have for you to find the best foundation match. Some of you might know what skin type you have, and some of you might not be entirely sure. I have written THIS BLOG POST to help you figure it out. In this blog post, I will explain what type of foundations that would work the best for you and also give you some recommendations. Note that some recommendations might work for other skin types as well.

If you have oily skin, then you would want to opt for a matte foundation. A matte foundation that is a good match for your skin type will hold back the oils of your skin so you do not get as oily through the day. A dewy foundation will give you the opposite effect and make you look even more oily depending on how oily your skin is. My two recommendations for foundations for oily skin is #1 Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (¬£33.50, *) and #2 L’Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Foundation (¬£9, *). Both of these foundations are matte but one is high-end while the other one is from the drugstore.¬†If you have oily skin,¬†then please leave your favourite foundation in the comments to help out other people with oily skin to find their perfect foundation match!

 

If you have dry skin, you might not want to go for a matte foundation, but maybe a more dewy/glowy one. You could make a matte foundation work with a good hydrating primer Рit is all about what works for your skin, and a dewy foundation might not grip onto dry spots as a matte foundation would. My two recommendations for foundations for dry skin is #3 Revlon ColorStay Foundation for Normal/Dry Skin (£13, *) and #4 Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation (£34, *). I own the Revlon one myself, and it is not dewy nor matte but a good in between and it is one of my favourite foundations! If you have dry skin, then please leave your favourite foundation in the comments to help out other people with dry skin to find their perfect foundation match!

 

If you are looking for a foundation for combination skin, you might think it is a bit of a tricky job as you have both oily and dry skin. I think the most important thing is to multi-prime so you would use a mattifying primer in the T-zone and a hydrating primer on the cheeks. You might like my two recommendations for a foundation for combination skin which include #5 Revlon ColorStay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin (£13, *) and #6 Too Faced Born This Way Foundation (£29, *). The Revlon Foundation is made for combination/oily skin while I have heard great things about the Born This Way Foundation for combination skin. If you have combination skin, then please leave your favourite foundation in the comments to help out other people with combination skin to find their perfect foundation match!

 

The last foundation recommendations are for normal skin, which also is the skin type I have. I normally go for every finish of foundation depending on what I might want that day. My recommendations for foundations for normal skin includes #7 The Ordinary Serum Foundation (£6, *) and #8 Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (£42, *). The Serum Foundation is actually my favourite foundation right now and it looks very natural on the skin and gives a nice amount of coverage even though it is very lightweight (read my entire review right here). If you have normal skin, then please leave your favourite foundation in the comments to help out other people with normal skin to find their perfect foundation match!

 

I hope this post gave you a bit of information and gave you an idea of what kind of foundation you should be looking for to match your skin type. Thank you so much for reading – I hope to see you back soon! xx

10 SUNGLASSES UNDER 10 POUNDS

10 SUNGLASSES UNDER 10 POUNDS

//1 Skinny Cat Eye Matte Black (£6, *) Р//2 Small Metal Square Cat Eye (£10, *) Р//3 Pink Lens Aviator (£6, *) Р//4 Oversized Pink Cat Eye (£4, *) Р//5 Tortoiseshell Slim Cat Eye (£8, *) Р//6 Angular Brown Aviator (£6, *) Р//7 Frameless Round Glasses (£8, *) Р//8 Red Eye Frame (£6, *) Р//9 Slim Black Cat Eye (£8, *) Р//10 Square Cat Eye (£8, *)

It is summer so what better time than now to stock up on some cheap and fashionable sunglasses? All of the sunglasses I have included in the collage above are 10 pounds or less! Actually, only one of them is 10 pounds (the pair at #2 (*)) while the rest of them are 8 pounds or lower! Many of the styles of sunglasses I have included are very hot right now, but they might not be “in” next year. Only time will tell. So why use a lot of money on sunglasses that might go “out of fashion” in just one year? If you have the money to spend, then go ahead! I do not decide what you use your money on. But if you are on a budget or you might not even be sure that these styles of sunglasses will fit your face shape, then why not try a cheaper alternative before buying a more expensive pair?

My favourite style of sunglasses right now is the cat eye shaped ones, which is why I have included a lot of them in this post. I really like the skinny styles like the ones seen at #2, #5, #9, and #10 (*). My absolute favourite of them all might be the nude ones at #2 (*) as I think they are very versatile. I haven’t really included any white sunglasses, not because I couldn’t find any I liked, but because it is very hard to make the background of the photo transparent when the item is white. So if you like white sunglasses, #9¬†(*) is actually also available in white!

Sunglasses with coloured lenses is also very trendy this summer. I personally love the sunglasses with pink lenses, but they are available in a ray of different colours! I especially adore the aviators with pink lenses¬†(*) as they are very retro and fun! If you don’t like the whole trend with eye-catching¬†lenses, then you might want to take a look at the sunglasses at #4, #6, and #7 (*). I know the ones at #4¬†(*) still is a bit pink, but not as pink as the aviators (*), they are a bit more subtle. The ones at #6 (*) and #7 (*) have brown and black lenses, so they might be a better option for you if you don’t want any shade of pink lenses or other fancy colours. But even though they have brown and black lenses, the shape of the lenses are a bit different than the more popular styles of sunglasses like aviators.

I hope you enjoyed this inspirational post on sunglasses. Let me know if you have a favourite pair from the collage or what your typical style in sunglasses is! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

TUTORIAL: SUNSET OVER THE OCEAN

TUTORIAL: SUNSET OVER THE OCEAN

Yay! I finally did another summer look tutorial for you! This might not be something you haven’t seen before, but I just wanted to do my version of a “Sunset over the Ocean” look and I hope you like it! It is actually pretty easy to do, so if you keep on reading I am sure you will realise how easy! Also, let me know if you have any great ideas for summery looks!

Normally I would apply my foundation and concealer before doing my eyeshadow, but because I want the orange eyeshadow to have a straight line at the outer part of my eye, I would need to use some tape which eventually would remove any foundation or concealer. Before I applied the tape, I put down some MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre as my primer. Normally I would set it with a translucent powder, but I have seen so many not setting their primer/concealer on the eyes and just go in with the shadow directly to give the shadow a more vibrant colour, so that is what I wanted to try today. Based on the final result and on how the blending of the shadows went I actually think I enjoy this technique and I will try to play around with it even more in the future.

The first shadow I went in with was Orange Crush from Coastal Scents. I used the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to pack it into my crease. I did not blend anything, just packed it on. I then dipped the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents into the shade Charm from the Androgyny Palette by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. Go in with Orange Crush again if you feel like the colour of it have faded a bit by the blending. Blend again afterwards. Keep going back and forth until you are satisfied. I then went into Bright Yellow from Coastal Scents with the same Pointed Blender Brush after I cleaned it off a bit. I then packed the Bright Yellow shadow onto my lid and blended out the edges of it with a clean Crease Blender Brush dipped into a bit of Cantaloupe Slice from Coastal Scents. Now take off the tape and finish your face makeup. Go to my Instagram @simonehjulmand to see a full list of products I have used for my face. Click any photo of this makeup look.

Now it is time for the blue part of the eye. For the liner on my lower waterline, I mixed some of Cornflower Blue from Coastal Scents with a drop of the Inglot Duraline. I applied the mixture to my waterline with the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques and used a bit of Electric Blue from Coastal Scents to set it even though it dries down. With a clean Smudge Brush, I applied some of the Electric Blue shadow under my lashes and up against the orange. I then used a clean Pointed Blender Brush dipped into some of Cornflower Blue to blend it out. Because water glistens in the sun, I wanted to apply a bit of blue shimmer on top of the blue matte shadow. I went into Blue Zircon from Coastal Scents with a sponge-tip applicator and applied it close to my lashline and right below the orange line.

I then finished up my makeup; I applied a mixture of Snow, White Sand, and Golden Dawn from the Ultimate Glow Kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills (*) to my browbone and inner corner. I curled my lashes with the Heated Eyelash Curler from Eylure (*) and applied some MAC Cosmetics In Extreme Dimension Mascara to my upper lashes.

I really hope you enjoyed this makeup look and felt that you were on a bit of a vacation while reading this hahaha. I think it was so fun to create and I am sooooo in love with it! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

30 SHADES OF BLUSH

30 SHADES OF BLUSH

//1 Oversized Belted Kimono (£18, *) Р//2 Ankle Boots (£40, *) Р//3 Off The Shoulder Wrap Midi Dress (£20, *) Р//4 Bow Hoop Earrings (£6, *) Р//5 Highlighter (£32, *) Р//6 Ruffle Detail Blouse (£18, *) Р//7 Moisturizing Beauty Essence (£38, *) Р//8 Block Heel (£25, *) Р//9 Embroidery Cross Body (£16, *) Р//10 Bardot Frill Midi Dress (£20, *) Р//11 Tassel Flat Mules (£30, *) Р//12 Mesh Thong Body (£16, *) Р//13 Studded Tote Bag (£28, *) Р//14 Brightening Mask (£4.60, *) Р//15 Flared Sleeve Blazer Dress (£35, *) Р//16 Satin Wrap Midi Dress (£35, *) Р//17 Highlighter (£32, *) Р//18 Frayed Hem Denim Skirt (£20, *) Р//19 Frill Blouse (£18, *) Р//20 Perspex Court Heels (£30, *) Р//21 Bardot Blazer (£15, *) Р//22 Liquid Highlighter (£25, *) Р//23 Blush (£6, *) Р//24 Jumper Dress (£20, *) Р//25 Triple Strap Block Heel (£25, *) Р//26 Point Toe Court Heels (£65, *) Р//27 Embellished Pearl Box Clutch (£35, *) Р//28 Flared Sleeve Midi Dress (£20, *) Р//29 Daily Moisturizing Cream (£39, *) Р//30 Oversized Cord Trucker Jacket (£28, *)

In my world is the collage above probably the prettiest I have ever done! And I only say that because blush pink is my absolute favourite colour. I know that I have done a 30 SHADES OF PINK before, but pink and blush pink is not the same hahaha. In my 30 SHADES OF PINK, I included every possible shade of pink while in this 30 SHADES OF BLUSH, I only includes blush pink items.

Some of my favourite items from the collage might be some of the blouses, I especially adore the Ruffle Detail Blouse at #6 (*) as I am really into ruffles right now. I would style the blouse with a pair of either white or light denim blue jeans and a pair of nude heels and a matching nude bag. Another item I really adore that might not categorize as a blouse is the Bardot Blazer at #21 (*). I have always had a weakness for blazers, and since off the shoulder items are so in at the moment, this Bardot Blazer (*) would be perfect for me! I would wear the blazer with a white pencil skirt, nude heels or some nude mules like these and a matching nude or white bag.

Talking of mules, that is another thing I am totally obsessed with right now! It is a fairly new obsession of mine, so I just recently ordered a pair online which have not arrived yet Рbut I literally can not wait, and I can not wait to show them to you! I have also included a pair of mules in the collage, the Tassel Flat Mules at #11 (*). The ones I have ordered are not as colourfull and are actually just black bow mules. But if you already own a big collection of mules and are just as obsessed as I am, then these would a great buy as they are a bit different and eye-catching and would even go to a lot of different outfits! I think they would look great paired with both jeans, pants, skirts, etc. and they will even match a lot of coloured tops and dresses.

Now that we have talked a bit about fashion, I think it is time to talk a bit about beauty. In the collage I have included three blush coloured highlighters; two pressed highlighters (at #5 and #17) and a liquid one (at #22). Like many other people who are into beauty, I really adore highlighters. I am not the biggest fan of liquid ones, mostly because I am a bit afraid to use them because I am scared that they will ruin my foundation. I, therefore, use pressed highlighters most of the time. I think a blush pink highlighter is so stunning, and it somehow looks quite icy on my skin at least. I think a blush pink highlighter can look great on a broad variety of skin tones.

I could keep talking about these blush coloured items all day, but then I might end up boring you all, hahaha. I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post – let me know what your favourite item is from the collage above! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

TUTORIAL: TROPICAL EYES

TUTORIAL: TROPICAL EYES

Yay! The calendar now officially¬†says “summer” so I want to create some summery looks for you! I chose to name this first look “Tropical Eyes” as I was inspired by what I thought of as tropical colours and the popular Hawaiian flower; plumeria kauai. If you are in doubt of what flower that is, then Snapchat actually have a filter with it where it is put in your hair just over your ear (I have also included a photo of it in the collage tutorial below ūüėČ ). If you are interested in learning how I created this look, then please keep reading.

Oh my God… The top of the collage tutorial makes me want to go to Hawaii and lay on a beach with a cool drink… Well, let’s get into the tutorial and stop fantasising hahahaha. I started off by priming my eyes with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used a translucent powder to set it. The first shadow I applied was Bright Yellow from Coastal Scents with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I did not blend the shadow at first, I just packed on the shadow until it had the intensity I wanted and then I blended it out with a clean Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I then went in with some of the yellow shadow again and blended out the edges again. I kept doing this until I was happy with the way it looked. I then went into the shadow Cantaloupe Slice from Coastal Scents with the Pointed Blender Brush, I blended it out with the same Crease Blender Brush but I did not blend it as high as the first yellow shadow. I then applied some of the shadow¬†Orange Crush from Coastal Scents with the Pointed Blender Brush again and used the Crease Blender Brush to blend it out. I applied Orange Crush¬†to both my crease and on the outer part of my lid.

The next step is to cut the crease. For this, I used the Dermacol Foundation and the Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents. Afterwards, I used a translucent powder to set the foundation. I then used the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques to apply the shadow Aurora Orange from Coastal Scents on top of the half cut crease. I used the Pointed Blender Brush and a bit of Orange Crush to make the edge of Aurora Orange blend nicely into the outer part of the lid.

I then used the NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner in Envy (*) to apply a winged eyeliner. For the yellow eyeliner on my waterline, I mixed some of the Bright Yellow shadow and a bit of white eyeshadow (White Snow from Coastal Scents) together with two drops of the Inglot Duraline. I¬†applied the mixture with the Smudge Brush and used some translucent powder to set it even though the Duraline dries down but I just wanted to help the process a bit so I didn’t get it into my eye. To finish up the lower lashline, I applied some of the Bright Yellow shadow with the Pointed Blender Brush.

Now on to my favourite part of this look: the flowers! I started out by drawing the petals of the flowers with the NYX Cosmetics White Liquid Liner (*) and then used the NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner in Halo in the middle of the flower. To finish up this look I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (*). If you want to see a list of all the products used to do this look, then they can be seen on my Instagram, just click any picture of this look.

I hope you enjoyed this tropical look and that I made you want to join me on a vacation to Hawaii, hahahaha. Let me know in the comments if you are going on any tropical vacation this summer! I am just staying in Denmark during this summer. Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

SAVE UP TO 60% OF CAMBRIDGE SATCHEL

SAVE UP TO 60% OF CAMBRIDGE SATCHEL

//1 The Batchel (£165 £115) Р//2 Push Lock (£85 £42) Р//3 Small Cloud Bag (£130 £91) Р//4 Magnetic Mini Satchel (£135 £67) Р//5 Mini Poppy Bag (£100 £50) Р//6 Magnetic Satchel (£135 £67) Р//7 Small Conductors Bag (£130 £52) Р//8 Cloud Bag with Handle (£140 £70)

Since 2008 have The Cambridge Satchel Company been making satchels. The first time I heard about the brand was back in 2012 and it was also that year I got my first satchel from the brand. Not only do I love all of their satchels, I also love that you can personalize them. My satchel is the one marked as #1 in the collage above which I have personalized with my initials (SHA) in silver. The Cambridge Satchel Company is right now having a huge summer sale where you can get up to 60% of the bags right now! Who knows if the percentage will rise? Do you dare to wait?

In the collage above, I have included eight satchels which all are included in the summer sale! I wanted to pick some satchels for everyday wear which would match a lot of outfits and I also wanted to pick some more summery satchels as it is a summer sale.

In my opinion are the satchels at #1, #3, #6, and #7 examples of satchels which would work with almost every possible outfit! The reason I think they are the more “safe” choice to go with, is because of their colour. Black and brown goes with almost every outfit, so if you want to make sure you get the use out of your satchel that it deserves, then I would recommend you go with a safe colour. The other satchels at #2, #4, #5, and #8 might not go with as many outfits as the other ones, but they are still sooooo cute! If you want a more colourful satchel, then be sure to choose one in a colour you would never get tired of! Let’s say your favourite colour always have been baby pink and you might, therefore, own other items like shoes or other accessories in baby pink as well, then a baby pink satchels won’t be a bad choice for you as it would match a lot of items in your wardrobe!

I think it is important to do such thoughts before buying a more expensive piece for your wardrobe as you, as mentioned before, want to get the use out if the satchel (or other items) it deserves. Plus you also want to spend your money well! My favourite bag from the collage above has to be the one I already own at #1. I really adore my own satchel bag and I like to use it for everyday wear – as long as I don’t have to bring too much.

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my blog post! Let me know in the comments which bag from the collage above is your favourite! I hope to see you back soon! xx

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: DOLORES UMBRIDGE INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: DOLORES UMBRIDGE INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

Yay! Finally, another makeup look in my Harry Potter inspired makeup series! This time, I chose to be inspired by one of the evilest characters in the Harry Potter universe, none other than Dolores Umbridge! If you are not familiar with Umbridge or maybe have watched the movies once, then just to help your memory; she is the lady dressed in pink who the Ministry of Magic send of to Hogwarts as the professor in Defence Against the Dark Arts in Harry’s fifth year (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix). She later became High Inquisitor of Hogwarts and then Headmistress. One of the things I remember Umbridge for is how she punished Harry and some of the other students. She used a quill which used the blood of the writer as ink while it carved the written words into the writer’s hand. The first time you see Umbridge use this form of punishment is when Harry dared to contradict the Ministry of Magic’s stance. Umbridge told Harry to write the sentence “I must not tell lies” which has inspired this makeup look. If you are interested in seeing how I created this, then please keep reading!

To start off this look, I primed my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and I used a translucent powder to set it. For the pink shadow, I used the Makeup Revolution All About Pink Blush Palette (*). I started out with laying down the hot pink blush in the middle of the top row with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I then dipped the Blender Crease Brush from Coastal Scents into the lightest blush in the palette (top row, far left) and blended out the edges of the hot pink shadow.

To deepen the crease a bit I used the first shade from the right on the second row from the BH Cosmetics x Carli Bybel Eyeshadow Palette with the Blender Crease Brush. I only used a tiny bit and it might not even be noticeable, but I see it hahaha. For the pink shimmer, I first applied the pink highlight shade from the BH Cosmetics x Carli Bybel Eyeshadow Palette with a sponge tip applicator. As the shimmer did not pop as I wanted them to, I went over it with pink/purple highlight shade from the Makeup Revolution All About Pink Blush Palette (*) with the same sponge tip applicator. I think this look would have looked better with a pink glitter instead, but I do not own one so I had to go with this.

For the liner with the word “lies”, I used the NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner in the shade Fire¬†(*). If you want to recreate this look, then try to do the liner before you do the eyeshadow to make sure you know where to write the letters and how to control the liner. I am also not sure if this is how the word should turn if you want people who look at you to be able to read it, but it looks cool haha.

For the lower lashline, I went in with the NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Prague (*) on the waterline and used the hot pink from the blush palette (*) to set it. I do not know if the lip product is eye safe, so I would not recommend doing this! I am such a good role model, aren’t I? I then used the Pointed Blender Brush and the same hot pink shade to blend out the lower lashline.

For highlight, I used the same pink/purple highlight shade from the Makeup Revolution All About Pink Blush Palette (*). On my lashes, I used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara.

I really hope you enjoyed this makeup look, I had a great deal of fun while creating it! Let me know in the comments which characters you want to see next! Thank you for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

REVIEW: DERMACOL MAKEUP COVER FOUNDATION *UPDATED*

REVIEW: DERMACOL MAKEUP COVER FOUNDATION *UPDATED*

As you might have guessed from the title of this post, this is an updated review of the Dermacol Makeup Cover Foundation. I have, obviously, done one before, but as I can see a lot of people still read it, I wanted to update it to how I write my reviews now.

The Dermacol Makeup Cover Foundation (£14.90 for 30 g) is said to be the first of its kind in Europe and one of the first in the world. I own mine in the shade 207. Besides this full coverage foundation does Dermacol also offer 10 other foundations which include other full coverage foundations and more natural foundations.

On their website, they state that the foundation:
 Рare extreme covering
 Рhave a natural looking finish
 Рare waterproof
 Рare hypoallergenic
 Рare for all skin types
 Рcontains SPF 30
 Рare preservative-free

I want to start out by talking about the packaging. I think that the box the foundation comes in is really cute and that the tube that contains the foundation looks stunning as well! The only thing I dislike about the packaging is, as I also mentioned in my previous review, the material the tube is made of as it will crack in the edges over time. This will result in you getting foundation all over your fingers when you are squeezing the foundation out of the tube. No thank you.

I use the picture of the packaging from my old review as I no longer store the foundation in its original packaging. I bought a container which can hold 30 g so a tube of foundation can be stored in there.

As they state, the foundation is extremely pigmented. The first time I heard about the foundation was in a video on Instagram where they showed that it could cover up a tattoo. I tested this on my boyfriend’s arm. I used a pretty thick layer of the foundation and it covered his tattoo pretty good. It might have been better with a colour corrector underneath. If I want to wear a full face of makeup, I usually do not go for this foundation as my foundation. I would normally only use this as a concealer because it is so full coverage. If I want to wear no-makeup makeup, I actually use this one because you can make it look pretty natural if you only apply it to the centre of your face and then blend it out. I prefer a makeup sponge to blend out this foundation. The foundation is also waterproof as long as you don’t rub your face if it has become wet. If your foundation has become wet, then lightly tab it dry.

I have sensitive normal skin, and I think this foundation works great for my skin type! I have used this foundation for about three years now and it has never irritated my skin. If you have dry skin and maybe dry padges¬†or flakes of skin, then this foundation might cling to it depending on your primer. If I have a dried out pimple, I like to use the NYX Cosmetics Pore Filler (*) on the pimple, then the foundation won’t cling to it!

I really like this foundation which also is why I have been using it for three years now. The only thing that irritates me is the material the tube is made of. I will award this foundation 5 out of 5 possible hearts!

I think this foundation is very versatile and is great for a lot of different looks. I think it is sad that they only offer 16 shades and there are no darker shades in the range. I hope you enjoyed this updated review! Let me know in the comments if you have tried the Dermacol Makeup Cover Foundation before, and if you like it or not! I hope to see you back soon! xx
