Four Steps to a Fresh, Flawless Face with Rimmel! (And a GIVEAWAY!)

Fresh, Flawless Face with Rimmel London!

· Begin with Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation ($8.99), a light perfecting radiance foundation, that gives traceless coverage and perfectly flawless skin under any light. Lasts all day and has SPF 18 – perfect for summer!

· Follow by applying Rimmel London Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch ($4.99) to the apples of your cheeks. This lightweight, ultra blendable mousse formula gives an instant touch of radiance and illuminates the skin giving it a healthy summer glow.

· Then frame your eyes by giving your eyebrows definition using the Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil ($3.33) for a beautifully refined brow.

· Top it off with one of my favorites, Rimmel London ScandalEyes Mascara ($6.99), to achieve beautiful, voluptuous lashes!

I was sent these products to test out the look for myself, and unfortunately I could immediately tell that the foundation was WAY too light for me {and I'm pretty sure it was the darkest shade available in the Match Perfection line, so that means as a whole it's not very brown girl friendly}. So I got the idea to test it out on...

Peyton is fresh face with Rimmel Cosmetics

My resident teen, Peyton! Now that she is 13, I told her that she had the green light to start wearing a little bit of makeup. Nothing major {and look at her, she doesn't need anything because she's naturally pretty flawless}-just lip gloss, light colored shimmer shadows, and a bit of brown mascara. She has asked that she be allowed to wear concealer {to cover up the occasional blemish}and because of the skin care benefits and light coverage, I'm okay with her wearing a bit of BB Cream too. In fact, the list of approved products grew because of this tutorial!

It turned out that the foundation was too light for her complexion as well {womp womp}, but because it's from Rimmel, I'm sure it's great: I just wish they would expand their color selection. So we skipped the first step and applied the Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch in Blushing Rose to the apples of her cheek and blended it slightly towards her temples. A little goes a long way with this product and the sheer, shimmer/glow it gives is absolutely beautiful! She has a scar on her left eyebrow, so I used the Professional Eyebrow Pencil to show her how to lightly fill in that blank space in her brow, as well as how to use the brush to groom her brows into a natural and age appropriate shape. I also showed her 
how to use the side of the pencil instead of the tip, so that it appears natural. We added two coats of  ScandalEyes Mascara to her top lashes and a bit of Rimmel London Stay Glossy Lip Gloss in Eternal Flirt (reviewed here) to her lips to finish off the look!

So now that I've seen how natural and age appropriate this look is, I've agreed to let Peyton use the same method to groom her brows {she's always been a bit self conscious about her scar} and I thought this Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch brought just the perfect amount of natural color to her face. I think that these products from Rimmel are just right for makeup beginners like Peyton and anyone that wants a simple, fresh, and flawless look!
