QGossip caught up with the guest make-up artist, Chris Dennis, who'll be gracing our screens for the Myface launch. Here he tells us all about the TSV…
Tell us about Today's Special Value and why you love it…
There's such a buzz about Myface – celebrities are talking about it, celebrity make-up artists are talking about it and beauty editors are taking about it. They're not only talking about it but USING it.
Today I'm showing you the 'IT kits’. Every single product in these kits is designed to work with a specific skin tone (light, medium, medium dark). Not only will every item suit your skin tone, but also work together as a full make-up look.
I hear stories all the time about women who have bought a lipstick because they are attracted by the colour, or blusher because it matches a jumper or necklace, but when they put in on, not only does it not match their skin tone but it also doesn't work with the rest of their make-up. With these kits, once you know your skin tone you have no guess work left – it's fool-proof. It really is that simple.
Take a look at what can be achieved with the Myface collection…
What would be your advice for application?
With the Myface products it's fingers all the way. The ultra lightweight foundation goes on perfectly when blended into your skin using just your fingers, giving a full, flawless finish with the appearance and feel of no make-up on the skin.
What's your favourite product in the kit?
It has to be the Bling-tone eyeshadows – they're a real glamour pop for all eyes. The eyeshadows have an intense glamorous foil-effect finish - not glitter, foil! They are buildable so you can create a simple wash or a dramatic smoke effect. Also, they don’t crease or drop when applied!
What are your must-have make-up essentials?
- A good foundation or tinted moisturiser that is a perfect match to the skin.
- A black mascara (not brown) – let those lashes be dramatic and noticeable always.
- A blusher or bronzer. In this British climate we need colour on our faces, so work on those cheeks and sun-kissed faces.
What top three make-up products should every woman carry?
Definition and texture is the key. Never leave the house without your brows, eyeliner and lips on! Even if you haven’t got time for a full base, these three areas really balance your face and give definition to the key areas.
- So, a good brow pencil and tweezers – these frame the face.
- An eye liner pencil or liquid to give definition to any eye shape.
- A lip pencil and gloss or lipstick. Lips should always look hydrated and dewy even if there's no colour on.
I do need to add in concealer, but now that's four products, oops! But no one wants dark circles or to be caught out when a surprise pimple breaks out just before a party!
