Fresh faced and flawless thanks to The Body Shop

The Body Shop have launched a great range of products to enhance your natural beauty and create a perfect base for a flawless, fresh faced look or even something more daring.

The Telford team and provided a great demonstration on the new product range and how to create the key summer look which is bound to impress - even if that summer weather isn't here just yet.

First to the test - Instablur

This brand new product in a first for The Body Shop and creates the perfect base for any make up - or even gives you the confidence to go make-up free! In a stylish tube, apply in key areas to create a based across the face like any other primer using a foundation brush or sponge. From its initial application, the results are clear. My skin looked more toned, clearer and brighter. The Instablur product is amazing at evening skin tone, and diminishing visibly large pores and imperfections. It is also a great product for those who may have oily/combination skin as the product lasts well preventing oily coverage even after other products are applied.

Next - Tea Tree BB Cream

Another new product to The Body Shop, this BB cream is continuing a popular element to many make up collections. A great alternative to standard foundation, BB creams were a big hit from launch with many make-up artists. Creating great coverage and colour while adding moisture, brightening and evening skin BB creams have been a huge change to make-up. However, BB creams are not for everyone. Some have found them to be too heavy or problematic for skin known to break out easily. The tea tree BB creams have been created with this in mind. Tea tree products have always been a strong, effective product for The Body Shop and this new BB cream range continues with all the strengths of other tea tree products. Continuing the great coverage expected of BB creams, this new version includes tea tree oils to help prevent those unfortunate breakouts and continue as part of your tea tree skin routine. Use a foundation brush to create an even cover across the face and down the jawline for even colour to your neck.

One key tip with any BB cream user - always remove make-up at the end of the day. It is always advisable to remove make up at the end of each day. This will help prevent build up and breakouts while keeping skin fresh and moisturised and support your natural beauty.

Final test - Honey bronze

Sadly the weather has been fairly damp but with summer still on the horizon or at least the holiday season, now is the time to enjoy that summer shimmer using bronzers to compliment your tan - even if created using tanning lotion. To continue the key fresh-faced look for the summer, bronzers are great for creating a healthy glow without the risk of turning tangerine if used correctly. Using the complimentary colour to your natural skin tone, using a face/kabuki brush or blusher brush for more defined cover brush the honey bronze along cheekbones, temples, forehead and touch on t-zone to bring a touch of colour. Blusher is not always necessary unless you feel you need a touch but use sparingly to prevent a clash of colour. When using bronzer, less is always more. Don't apply too heavily or risk creating odd streaks across the face and loosing both a healthy tone and defined shape.
