GUEST BLOGGER - Makeup Secret Weapons - Ant Adams

Anthony's makeup secret weapons! Products you NEED to know about!

I have been working as a Makeup Artist for brands like Chanel and for Celebrities for over 15 years now. So daily, I become aware of products by the hundreds, which to a novice could be very confusing.

A lot of people I meet are already baffled with makeup and how to use it. Thankfully I have brands, who often send me products to trial and review, and with some of these products I instantly fall in love.

With new technologies within the last few years, makeup has had a huge push forward, where we can now get foundations that illuminate, reduce lines and wrinkles, and even alter in any light that you may walk into, to give you a stunning result.

So here are just a few of my new finds, which you should check out and hopefully love as much as I do.

Benefit 'Fake Up' crease control hydrating Concealer.

Concealer is a girls, (and some boys) best friend. And over the years I have searched high and low for one that is not dry, too visible and that hydrates rather than creases. Benefit's new 'Fake Up' is a diamond amongst the rough. With Vitamin E and Apple seed extract, this handy purse sized concealer, will not only hide a multitude of sins, but will leave a silky smooth finish to any makeup.

Benefit "Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow' Foundation.

There are a million foundations out there, and why be confused when it comes to something that is not only a staple in our makeup kits, but also offers us the best result from all of our products. I have discovered a foundation that not only offers a stunning coverage, but is oil free and has a SPF 25 PA+++. This fabulous little product aids to boost cellular respiration, which gives a plumping up effect. You will not only be thrilled with the finish but also how it wears through-out the day.

 Kiehl's Line Reducing Eye Brightening Concentrate.
I am a skincare addict! I got into looking after my skin in my thirties and I am glad I did, as I think now I am in my forties, I am still holding up pretty well. This is thanks to being able to use some great products, such as Kiehls 'Line Reducing Eye Brightening Concentrate'. This fantastic cream (which I can vouch for myself) has been clinically demonstrated to improve the visible signs of ageing such as dark circles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It also gives a lush brightening effect to your eye area. With Bitter orange extract and a patented ingredient Haloxyl (TM), along with the Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid), this product will take years off your eyes, in a small amount of time.


Kiehls 'Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler'.

Need a product that can wipe years of your face instantly? Then try this fabulous cream from Kiehls, it works instantly, and continues to work over time without having any silicones With two types of Hyaluronic Acids, it offers double the wrinkle filling power. So wrinkles will be filled and your skin will appear plumped and smooth. Who doesn't want to look a few years younger?

These are just a few suggestions of my favourite products. Thankfully due to the technology advances as mentioned, you can now find products for any concern you may have, and it offers you an alternative to the more painful things such as botox.

So there is a world of great new items out there, when you get a chance, delve deeper and go try some for yourself, I think you will pleasantly surprised. And who needs an excuse to go shopping right?

If there are any beauty or skincare questions you would like answered, don't forget you can pop an email over to me at and I will make an effort to answer them for you.

Till next time! x
