Move over Marilyn.
Want to know how to channel your inner screen siren? Keen to get your Brigitte Bardot on? Then there are only two beauty lessons you need to know, sugar.
Yep, a sure fire way to send your bombshell status soaring is to integrate two super simple beauty rules into your repertoire. In fact, to really get my message across, I’d like it if you’d please repeat after me.
“A true bombshell must always showcase flawless skin, and a killer flutter.”
Doesn’t it just sound like something Marilyn Monroe would say? Unfortunately, that’s a Liv-special, but that doesn’t mean it’s not true. (I’m almost positive Marilyn lived by something very similar, anyway.)
BOMBSHELL MAKE-UP RULE #1: Always showcase flawless skin.
Flawless skin – as in blemish-free, super creamy skin that looks almost airbrushed – that’s the look we’re after. To ensure neither blemishes nor dark circles creep into view, ensure you keep a hard-working concealer close by. We like La Biosthetique Belavance Teint Correcteur for its non-oily consistency, complete with moisturising agents. To achieve a flawless complexion you’ll need a pigmented foundation with staying power, like Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation.
Speaking of Laura Mercier, (complexion perfectionists – you’ll love this!), the Flawless Skin Range has permanently incurred a price drop in Australia. That’s right! All of your favourite Laura Mercier Flawless Skin favourites are now available for around $20 cheaper! Yippee!
BOMBSHELL MAKE-UP RULE #2: Always rock a killer flutter.
There’s a reason our biggest screen sirens have always rocked such a full and fabulous flutter. Think Elizabeth Taylor, Brigitte Bardot and even Twiggy – all big on the floor-sweeping flutter, and for good reason – it’s sexy. A killer flutter makes batting your eyelids all the more effective, makes your peepers seem bigger and is totally feminine.
But you know what? If you’re born with stumpish-style lashes (guilty as charged), sometimes mascara just doesn’t cut it. You’ve probably already made the move to eyelash extensions (and if you haven’t, you totally should). We love Xtreme lashes because the single-strand synthetic fibres make your peepers look amplified, while still natural, and they also have a cosmetic line to help maintain your flutter. In case extensions aren’t really your thing, they also have fabulous lash-enhancing alternatives like Xtreme Length and Volume Mascara!
Speaking of which, Xtreme lashes are currently offering 30 per cent off their cosmetic range when you order online! (It's automated, so there's no need for a code!) This includes the amazing Xtreme Lashes Amplifeye Lash Fortifier, which has a triple peptide formula and has amazing lash growth results!
