As someone who has always struggled with skin problems, pimples and the scars those pimples leave behind, I have been relying on makeup to make my skin look smooth and even toned. I also have oily skin that presents big challenge for my makeup to stay fresh all day. I also keep an eye out for foundation tips to get good coverage. For us 'T-Zone' girls, matte finish makeup is our best friend. So when I got a chance via #collectivebias to try this new (for me) product - Rimmel Stay Matte mousse foundation, I was more than excited to give it a try. What attracted me right away was the description that it has feather light, oil free formula! I need my foundation to give me good coverage, but not feel heavy, cakey or oily. This is a mousse texture that goes on smoothly for a powder finish. You can see how it looks on my skin in the pictures below and in the video tutorial. I used Rimmel fix & perfect primer with the foundation. All I can say is this one of the best drugstore foundation that you can lay your hands on. It has medium to heavy coverage, easy to put on and can be a good base to try on different make up looks. The only con I can think of is that if you have super dry skin, you might feel your face getting dry after the application. I found my color, the darkest they have (sand), but if you are darker than me, you may need to mix it with a darker BB cream to get the best match.
I also tried Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara and I have been using it a lot lately. If you follow my blog, you must have noticed that I am always on the lookout for best cheap mascara, as I use this product a lot on a daily basis. Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara has a very curvy brush that helps thicken the lashes and fans them out for a really stunning look.
I got both my foundation and mascara at Walmart. You will love the prices there!
Now comes the fun part! I used Rimmel Stay Matte mousse foundation to create Bollywood actress and Guess girl Priyanka Chopra's look. I loved her matte finish face and the playful, fuchsia lips.Below is my step-by-step tutorial to get Priyanka's matte make up look. There is a video too for more details.
