Many of us girls have redness on our faces…
Some people have it in form of scars. Some have it as an allergy/infection. Others have it from acne… and some just have redness for no reason!
I know it is really annoying to cover up redness- but there is a way!
DO NOT JUST TOP UP OBVIOUS REDNESS WITH YOUR FOUNDATION- IT WILL SHOW!
Here is my way- step to step with pictures!
So I have gotten a red patch on my skin due to an allergic reaction to medication- well I decided that it is a chance to show you girls how to hide it!
First of all.. Here are the stuff you will need
A green corrector (makeup forever or Kryolan), a beige corrector ( bobbi brown/makeupforever/kryolan), your desired foundation (liquid) and powder.
The reason on why I’m using a green corrector is because green cancels out the red in the skin
With the brushes, you will need: a flat foundation brush, 2 concealer brushes, one powder brush/duo fibre brush
APPLY GREEN CORRECTOR WITH CONCEALER BRUSH
APPLY IT ON RED AREA BY PATTING AND NOT SMUDGING
APPLY A BEIGE CORRECTOR (MINE IS BOBBI BROWN) ON TOP OF GREEN
WITH A CONCEALER BRUSH
WITH A FOUNDATION BRUSH COVER THIS AREA AND APPLY YOUR FOUNDATION ALL OVER
BLEND THE FOUNDATION AND EVEN IT OUT WITH A BEAUTY BLENDER
APPLY YOUR POWDER
NO MORE RED SHOWING!
I really hate that annoying feeling when you remove your makeup and you still feel that u have dirt on your skin!! I have got this shu uemura’s skin purifying cleansing oil recently from London and absolutely loved the results!
The product’s full name is “ultime8 sublime beauty cleansing oil skin purifier” and it comes in a brown bottle- 2 diff sizes- 150 ml and 450 ml
This special cleansing oil is super effective as it removes impurities and dirt and gives you the most amazing super smooth skin!!! I have tried and tested it and I guarantee you that it will make your skin very smooth!
It is mainly used to remove any dirt or makeup- will instantly hydrate and nourish your skin. It is a fantastic product to add to your skincare routine. This product by far is one of the best cleansing oils- it even beats MAC cleanse off oil- as i feel it is more healthier for my skin.
It is an oily/watery product and must be used with water in order to work!
These are the directions for using it!
Just remember, apply some in your hand then onto your face (which is filled with makeup) and apply some water then work it into your skin- you will then realize how super soft your skin is!

This cleansing oil literally removes every trace of makeup! So if you don’t feel like removing it with facial wipes etc- just wash ur face with it! I even love how it removes the waterproof mascara so easy! This product differs from Shu Uemura’s other cleansing oils as it is more moisturizing on your skin. You will feel instantly after washing your face how soft and smooth and supple it is!
The only disadvantage to this is how pricey it is- and it is not available in Bahrain- but hopefully when you travel you can get it!
I Had this product for a while now- but I just realized that I should definitely write my review about it!
The product is from a company called “GREEN BAR“… and what I love about it is that the company is from our beloved Bahrain!
Green Bar is all about luxury botanical oils…
Those precious oils come from all over the world… and work wonders on your skin!
One of my purchases was for the
“FACE ELIXIR” face oil
This serum is made from rice bran, which gives you a radiance. It also consists of fatty acids, antioxidants and Vitamin E. What this face oil does is plumps, hydrates and nourishes your skin (deeply) while smoothing fine lines.
It is perfect for both genders and all skin types.
What i love about it?
The smell…. the beautiful calming smell of lavender weakens my knees!!
The smell is super calming – so u can apply it day or night- and will help u sleep peacefully at night.
Although it’s an oil- it is not actually oily/greasy…. Once you apply it on your skin- it will sink into your face tissue and work its way in.
I also hear that lavender oil is great for burns- so it may be helpful too!
You will love how smooth and supple your skin feels after applying it!
This special facial oil can be a replacement for night creams or day cream (if you’re staying at home & you don’t need SPF).. Oils penetrate the skin much better than creams & hydrate it faster.
I don’t suggest using this before makeup though….
It is very similar to Kiehl’s Midnight recovery concentrate You can read about Kiehl’s here
How to Apply?
Make sure your face is clean- then apply a few drops onto your hands and massage all over your face! I also use it on my lips and under eye area Don’t forget- Massage it into your skin to make it work… don’t just pat it!

Many girls are asking me: What is the best powdered foundation? Many girls want to know. When I say powdered foundation- I don’t mean loose powder. I mean-the compact powder (pressed powder) in which u apply it with a sponge (some ppl apply it by brush).
If you have oily skin- powder is the way to go (although liquid foundations with mattifiers –oil free- are available). Powder tends to absorb the oil, but the trick is- to find one that doesn’t give you the “CAKEY” effect!!
I have tried A LOT of powders, trust me. The Holy Grail of all foundation powders- I must say is KANEBO. It’s a Japanese company which specializes in skincare & makeup, and many girls swear by this product.
The KANEBO “Sensai Foundation”- Total Finish- includes SPF 15, & will glide on easily + firmly onto the skin.
The finish is long lasting. You use it as any other foundation- and for best results; use it with the sponge which comes with it, inside the compact.
There are a variety of shades:
I was using this foundation for the past 6 years. I love it!! I have an olive skin tone, so i used to have shade 204.5 and 205. I stopped not because there’s something wrong with it, but because I switched to liquid based foundations. It is an amazing product; it beats MAC’s + Chanel’s powders. This product- guaranteed- won’t give you the CAKEY effect. It is very smooth & will last long!
It’s Refillable: You buy the foundation in the compact case for starters, after it’s finished, you refill your compact case with a new foundation!
