Hello lovely followers,
I have recently discovered an amazing blog and website called makeupgeek.com, the main artist on there Marlena has some great tutorials and looks.
So while I was at work, I checked out a few of her video’s and a very interesting one was of her showing her followers what she packs for a Bridal Shoot.
In this video, there was one product that really jumped out at me, it was the Model In a Bottle: Make up setting spray. I had never heard of this product before but as I have a couple of Wedding Make-ups booked, I was intrigued and just had to try it.
This item is made in the USA and as far as I could tell from a quick scan of the internet in my lunch break, there aren’t many places that sell this. However, there are a few UK based sellers on Ebay that do! So I managed to get my hands on a bottle for £16 (including free delivery) and it was at my door within 48 hours! I couldn’t believe it!
So today, as part of my more dramatic work look, I finished it all off with a couple of sprays of this Model in a Bottle. The packaging tells you to apply your make up as usual, wait for your mascara to dry. Close your eyes and spray evenly 1-2 inches from your face and then wait 20-30 seconds for it to dry before opening your eyes.
I have to admit, I was sceptical I didn't think there could be anything that could keep my make-up on for the whole day! Be warned, this isn't a miracle cure, your make up does still fade and run slightly but I don't think anything will ever stop that completely (but we can keep hoping). But it does work! For the first time in a long time I have actually returned from work and I still have a full face of make up on!
I’m prone to breakouts, especially on my chin, so usually by the time I come home I look like I went out with no make up on. OK, so maybe I’m exaggerating a bit but I still look worse than when I went to work. But today, I looked loads better! Hmm, maybe I’m not explaining this properly, today I came home with a full face of foundation still (a bit oily in the normal area’s but as I said its not a miracle cure), I still had colour on my cheeks and my eye shadow was in tact.
To summarize, this product is a hit!! At £16 for a bottle, that is said to hold 300 sprays I think this will become a permanent resident in my make up kit and on my shoots.
