I’m Ready For My Closeup With Make Up Forever HD Complexion Starter Kit!

If you’ve never tried the MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Foundation, then you are seriously missing out on probably one of the BEST foundations out there.

Make Up Forever has now made it even EASIER for you to try out their best selling HD Products by putting together the new HD Complexion Starter Kit!

The HD Complexion Starter Kit($89) contains four of MAKE UP FOR EVER’S amazing products: HD Microperfecting Primer, HD Invisible Cover Foundation, HD Microfinish Powder and a Kabuki Brush-everything you need to get you naturally flawless skin in three simple steps: Prep, Cover, Finish.

All of these products were of course created to be used in front of high definition video cameras, and if it makes actors look flawless on TV and film, then imagine what it does in real life. YEAH, that’s what I’m saying!

First, off let’s talk primer. Included in the kit is the Original MAKE UP FOREVER HD Primer. It’s oil-free, moisturizes and prepares a nice even smooth canvas for your foundation. It helps your foundation to last longer too. It has a slightly flowery scent to it, which dissipates after application. I found my skin looked luminous after applying the primer.

I kind of forgot how awesome the MAKE UP FOREVER HD Foundation was. When I worked part time at Sephora many moons ago, this was the foundation of choice that we(colour consultants) would test on someone who would come in looking for a new foundation. Why? First off there’s an amazing shade range. There’s a shade to match pretty much EVERYONE. It comes in 26 shades so you’re bound to find one to match you. It’s oil-free, gives medium to full coverage and lasts all day. It leaves you looking flawless with a luminosity-not like GLOW, but a like how a diffuse light would illuminate your face. A Healthy glow. If a bride came in looking for a foundation for the big day, this is what we’d recommend most of the time. I remember trying it out back then, but as I got crazier into makeup I kind of forgot how much I love using this. It works so well at covering flaws and is great to use when you want to look your best. The only thing is that I have to make sure my dry skin is really well moisturized before using it, and the MUFE HD primer does help with that.

The MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Powder is a translucent finishing powder made from 100% mineral silica. It sets the foundation and slightly mattifies your skin and softens the appearance of imperfections. There’s no talc, so it’s not drying at all. It gives you that airbrushed look and helps your makeup stay put all day. The kabuki brush is a great little brush to use with the HD powder. It’s super soft and does a great job of making sure you don’t use too much of the powder-believe me-you only need a tiny bit. Don’t go overboard with it. I shake a tiny bit into the palm of my hand and then swirl the kabuki brush into my palm to pick up the powder. That way you don’t get that dust cloud of powder in the air, plus it prevents you from using too much of it.

When testing out this kit, I actually got compliments on my skin! The combination of all three products is something I’ve never tried before, and I think that’s what really made me fall in love with it this time. My makeup looked great all day, and lasted all day too. Yup, MAKE UP FOREVER, you rock.  You are definitely going into my yes pile for my Walking into Mordor Foundation Quest. Thanks for coming back into my life!

I’m sure you’ve heard by now, but MAKE UP FOREVER has launched its first-ever open casting call to find a “real woman” to star in their next HD Complexion advertisement, which will not be digitally retouched or enhanced in any way. It’s a continuation of the Untouched Ad Campaign where last year they featured the first ever untouched makeup ad.
The open casting call runs from January 2nd through February 1st, 2012. To enter, you just need to create a make up look and submit your photo www.hd.makeupforeverusa.com. All finalists’ photos will be featured in a photo album on the MAKEUPFOREVERUSA Facebook page.  The winners-yes WINNERS-one Canadian and one American- will be announced on Facebook on February 9th, 2012, and then flown to New York City for a professional photo shoot. The casting call is open to all women age 18 and over residing in the U.S. and Canada. The winning models will star in an advertisement that highlights MAKE UP FOR EVER’S new HD Complexion Starter Kit! Isn’t it amazing that they are also picking one Canadian woman too? I love it.

To help women find their perfect foundation match online, MAKE UP FOR EVER has also created an interactive Shade Finder tool that can be found at www.hd.makeupforeverusa.com/shadefinder. It really works too!

Have you tried these Makeup Forever Products? Are you going to enter the contest? Wouldn’t it be cool if somebody you knew was on the box of the MUFE HD Complexion Starter Kit?
