Ben Nye Total Cover – All Wheel (SK-100)

The first step in doing makeup (at least for me) is having a flawless face to work with. Perfecting the base is something I take time doing, especially with clients I do makeup for. I always have this notion, where in the face, works like a canvass when it comes to makeup. I know it is cliché to say that, as a lot of people who do makeup think of it that way. But that statement is as clear as saying that one needs a flawless face to work with in order to achieve perfection in applying makeup.

Great bases help attain that, which is why I started investing with good ones to help build a decent kit for clients.
 
GLAM DOLL FACES –  Makeup FACTS:
Ben Nye is a theatrical makeup company – by means of that, it is a heavy duty makeup made to withstand the harsh lights of the industry. It started in 1967 by a famous Hollywood makeup artist; Benjamin Emmet Nye Sr., who was renowned for decades (yes decades) in the said field. A few movies I am familiar with, regarding his work would be Gone With the Wind and Planet of the Apes.
Enough with the trivia, I know you want the review so here it goes.
The shades of the concealer wheel is perfect for a lot of uses. Aside from concealing, it is also perfect for highlighting. I photographed the wheel , but only a few! Here’s the name of each shade (from the right ‘middle one’ in clockwise direction) CC-1, MY-2, MO-11, MY-1, MO-2 and the middle one which is MO-1.
WHAT THE GLAM DOLL THINKS:
The Ben Nye Total Cover-all Wheel in SK-100 is a concealer wheel divided into 6 portions. Although, you may purchase the shades individually, I find it more economical to buy the cover wheel as you get 6 shades for the price of 3. It is a cream based concealer with superb pigmentation. It offers great coverage without making it look thick – it is blendable (I know it is not even a word but you girls get me with that right?) enough to make your makeup look natural and at the same time it has the ability to hide those unwanted marks that you wish to conceal. I tried using this on a birthmark and it covered well. And since it is blends well, you can mix different shades to match the shade of the skin tone that you are aiming for.

L.A Girl Pro HD Concealers & Colour Correctors

All my Fair Skin Beauties would be so excited as well. There are 2 new lighter shades, Porcelain and Light Ivory.
There is now a shade you can actually highlight with.
Continue reading to learn what Colour Correctors do.
Yellow: Neutralizes the purple/blue bags under your eyes.
Its also great for olive skin tones who want that super Kim K Highlight.
Green: Is great to neutralize any unwanted redness.
It can be from acne, rosacea, blemishes, heat rash etc
 
Orange: Is amazing! to use on olive/deeper skin tones that have extreme dark blue under eyes. Blue being more “cool tone” the simplest way to think of a orange corrector is that it warms up the cool tone. So when you go and apply your concealer it doesn’t look ashy, and it covers the darkness a whole lot better.
Tip: If you are of a lighter complexion, you want to go for a more peach/salmon corrector. The orange can be to strong for your skin tone “otherwise” you can mix it in with your concealer. You only need a TINY bit of the orange corrector, maybe have a play when your not going somewhere important Ha!

How To Contour Your Face

Where you should contour:
  1. On the sides of your forehead and along your temples to make this wider area appear more narrow.
  2. The area below your cheekbones starting from your ears to in the middle of your cheeks, and then curving down to your jawline to lengthen your face.

Contouring and highlighting are like chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream: best together. First, let’s review these makeup techniques before getting into the mind-blowing contouring maps that follow.

Contouring is when you use a matte (read: not shimmery) powder, cream, or pencilproduct that’s two shades darker than your skin tone to shade areas you’d like to define or reshape, like your nose, forehead, chin, and cheekbones.

Highlighting (or strobing) offsets contouring by accentuating areas of your face with light concealer or highlighter. To properly highlight or strobe, use a concealer that’s two shades lighter than your skin tone or a highlighter that flatters your complexion to emphasize the areas of your face that naturally catch the light.

Figure out which contouring plan is right for you based on your face shape. Here’s a handy guide:

Diamond Face Shape

How to tell if your face is shaped like a diamond:

  • Your hairline is more narrow than your cheeks.
  • Your chin is slightly pointed.
  • Your face is longer than it is wide.

Where you should contour:

  • ​The area below your cheekbones starting from your ears and ending in the middle of your cheeks.

Where you should highlight:

  • Under your eyes in an upside-down triangle shape and along your brow bone to brighten your eyes.
  • In the middle of your forehead and the middle of your chin to help broaden these naturally narrow areas.

Heart Face Shape

How to tell if your face is shaped like a heart:

  • Your cheeks are wider than your hairline.
  • Your chin is narrow and pointed.
  • A true heart-shaped face also has a widow’s peak.

Where you should contour:

  • Along the sides of your forehead and temples to create balance between the wider upper half of your face and the more narrow lower half.
  • The area below your cheekbones starting from your ears and ending in the middle of your cheeks.​
  • The small area right below your chin to soften the point.

Where you should highlight:
