IMG_3721-EditI picked up the Everlasting Foundation and Instant Concealer from Clarins last week and I thought it might be nice to do a beauty post for a change. As it’s been a while! I needed something more full coverage after using the Revlon Colourstay and decided to go high-end, as most drugstore foundations aren’t pale enough for me (ghost girl problems).

The Foundation has a lovely texture, it’s smooth with a slightly matte finish so it goes on really easily and is lightweight on your skin.

I love the Instant Concealer to, I can definitely see the difference under my eyes when I use it and it’s a really nice, light texture. It has great staying power and doesn’t crease either. I find they work quite well together and overall give a lovely, smooth, healthy look to the skin. Being pale as well, I like that they’re yellow based and give more of a healthy glow than something pink based.

Clarins is always a fail safe, and these are good everyday products that I would use again. You could go for something fuller coverage for the evening but overall they give a good natural base.

So today I went to see a Chalkie Davies photography exhibition in Cardiff. Davies was a photographer for NME and shot some of the most famous and influential musicians of the 70s and 80s. Working only in black and white film, his pictures have a lovely grainy quality to them and are often posed in unique locations. Many of the photographs on display are unseen, a test devised by Davies years ago to see whether his pictures would still be culturally relevant, decades after they were taken.

I thought I would share some examples of his work on here and if your in Cardiff you have till September 6th to check them out first hand.c1 c2 c5 c4 c3
