Soooo....... Believe it or not, this was my very first time actually doing a full look using latex! I have always just used gelatin in the past as it's easier to get hold of (everything from the grocery) and not as unpleasant to remove! So this was very much trial & error, which is my favourite thing really. I love experimenting with new things!
Continuing on with my skin-care obsession, I bring you the La Roche Posay 'Effaclar' Range.
Or well a portion of it anyhow.....
I have been using the Effaclar A.I (Anti-Imperfection), the Effaclar Duo & the Effaclar Mat creams for a whileen now after seeing (reading) both Dee & Sinéad of VivaAdonis rave about the range for absolutely ages, and repeatedly I may add, which only strengthened my desire to jump on the band-wagon and have a go at it myself.
My skin can go through sporadic bouts of clarity but unfortunately, & more-often-than-not, it is home to clusters of spots/mild acne, blocked pores, uneven texture and just plain crappiness.
I do put about 60% of the blame for this on to the vast number of new products that I am constantly trying out for my blog/youtube channel/makeup kit, and the subsequent clogging up of my skin, but am I going to stop this anytime soon?? I think not! So I need to deal with my skin issues as best as I can while accepting that it'll probably continue to fight against my efforts while I am bombarding it with product after product, ingredient after ingredient.
The first bullet hole is what I did for halloween on myself & my sister a couple of years ago mainly because I was working & just didn't have the time to do anything more elaborate!
These kind of 'special effects' makeups are generally simple enough to do yet still quite effective!
Definitely practice a few times before the day though. I had almost forgotten how I did this back in 2010 and I don't think it came out quite as good as then but it will still give give ye the general idea how it's done.
