fotd by revlon make up artist

On Friday I got my make up done for free by a Revlon make up artist. He was so sweet and nice and gave me some amazing tips. This is his end result

I'm really happy with how natural it looks. I always feel cakey when I do my own make-up and I've always been a fan of the dewey/shiny look but can never pull it off without looking greasy/oily. But I love how glowly my skin looks.

He didn't really do anything fancy, just your basic primer, concealer, foundation, blush, eyeshadow, mascara.

My blemishes didn't get covered which I didn't like and my dark under eye circles were incredibly visible which I loathe. Even if I'm having a make-up free day I always, always, ALWAYS wear eye brightener.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. He was doing make up for free all day, so I didn't expect anything majorly amazing, but I was pretty happy with the outcome.

The make up artist gave me one of those sheets of paper with a drawing of a face on it and he drew on it and wrote exactly what he did and what he used, which was lovely.

Do you lovely ladies have any tips on how I can look dewy but not oily?
I use Revlon Photoready foundation at the moment, and as most of you know, it's famous for being just a bit too shiny lol and when I set with my powder it takes away all shine.


  1. Have you ever used the body shop foundations? They have a 'dewy' finish but don't make you look all oily and shiny, the only problemo I have with them is they can be sheer, I tend to do two layers x

  2. I think it looks beautiful! Especially for summer, I'm loving your blog btw! :)

  3. Lovely and natural. Skin has a nice smooth finish!

  4. Very pretty Paige! =)

    In answer to your question on my blog, you can get the BYS crack polishes from Gloss stores (I think in Melb they're called Ice??) or from

    Thank you for entering my giveaway!!

    Good luck!

  5. <3 your skin colour. It's not tanned but it's not white. I agree with what you said a few posts ago about Myer girls being snobby bitchs. Sooo true. I think we really agree on sales staff because this is the second time we have mentioned it haha.

    Did you end up getting a face moisturizer?
