This week's Fab Face is Ms. J Alba. Not only has she launched her new book 'The Honest Life', she's been rocking some stunning beauty looks to her signings. This is our particular fave, as we simply can't think of an occasion it wouldn't work for! Here's how to ace it...
For a dewy, fresh face like Jess, use a creamy primer before applying your liquid foundation. My top pick for a hydrating finish, perfect for the dewy look, is the MeMeMe Seventh Heaven Face Base. It adds instant nourishment with Shea Butter and Vitamin A, plus it helps to create a smooth base for your foundation to sit on, meaning a more even looking skintone and longer lasting makeup. Double win! Next, apply your liquid foundation of choice. For an extra touch of glow, a dollop of the MeMeMe Beat the Blues Illuminator.
A gentle wash of creamy latte coloured shadow is all you need when it comes to the lids. My personal favourite is the B by Bloom Col.lecta Eyeshadow in 'Sahara Desert'. Then, instead of automatically reaching for a black pencil liner to define your lashline, try a bronze shade instead. The Eye of Horus Smokey Eye Pencil in Amulet Goddess is not only longwearing, but extra smudgable when first applied, so you can blend, blend, blend it for a softy smoked finish. Next, you can either line the upper lashes with a liquid liner, like the bargain beauty steal from e.l.f - the Essential Liquid Liner - or you can skip this step and use a volumising, lengthening mascara on it's own. We are currently digging the Clinique High Impact Mascara, which is just that! Super high impact and attention grabbing without ever looking spidery. Just how we like our mascara served, thank you very much!
Keep your lips sweet and simple with a natural toned gloss. Our current fave and included in plenty of our March bellaboxes, is the C Me Shine Gloss from Yes to Carrots. They come in a range of natural tones, so there's sure to be one to suit your natural pout.
Just because the rest of your look is naturally beautiful, it doesn't mean that you can't have a little fun with your mani. For a bold orange look like Jess' try this neon tone from Mode in Rave'n.
And Ms. Alba's look is yours! Have you checked out her new book? Do you love her beauty look. In my opinion, she rarely gets it wrong! Let me know who you'd like to see featured next Thursday as our Fab Face! - Lauren
