Perfect skin with Sisley...........!

Yesterday I taught a masterclass at The Session School to a group of some amazing *students* make up artists & beauty professionals it was a masterclass about creating looks on mature skin. As make up artist it is of course fantastic when we work on young, gorgeous faces time and time again. But so many people get *mature* skin wrong. By mature I mean 40 and over. I have over the years developed some techniques that I employ just for this scenario. My model was in her 40's and I created 2 looks a very soft day look and a stronger evening look, these 2 looks centred around creating perfect skin that was healthy glowing and youthful. When I was developing this masterclass, I wanted to link up with and teach with a brand that is truly outstanding on mature skin, so the brand I chose was..........Sisley.

I prepped skin with Sisley skincare, so that the skin had a beautiful hydrated finish so that colour was literally like gilding the lily.

Here is a *snapshot* of the day.

An amazing range with some true *hero* products, but here are my standout *LOVES*, whether you are a make up artist looking to add to your kit or you just want to seek out high performance, botanical based skin treats and make up.

Sisley Skincare Must-haves:
Express Eye Contour Mask- This is fantastic for just creating that ultimate pre-make up complexion pick-me-up, it just erases tiredness and *stress* in the skin
Express Flower Gel- WOW it instantly hydrates and de-puffs, the eye area is soothed and is so damn quick.
Radiant Immediate lift- It changes the texture of the skin by smoothing but imparts an amazing *glow* that just make skin look picture perfect in photos (use it as a primer) on top of your regular moisturiser
Floral Spay Mist- Uplifting, refreshing, tones skin and amazing as a final step to *fix* make up.

Natural look Must haves:
Instant Perfect- this product is AMAZING, it soothes and smooths the texture of the skin creating a *pore less* finish, lines are blurred and it is a fantastic primer, giving your base longevity.
Phyto cerne- under eye concealer-  a treatment in itself, it smooths and hydrates the delicate eye area, it is creamy and blends away darkness perfectly.
Tinted Moisturiser- again, treating the skin as well as providing, fresh, flawless skin.
Shadow in Jungle- this used as a colour wash across the lids, just creates a simple, hint of colour, line softly on the lower lid for perfect definition

Red carpet look Must haves:
Lipstick L29- the most flawless, long lasting red a true Parisienne classic that is universally flattering.
Peach Duo blusher- a sculpting duo that creates subtle warmth to the complexion.
Phyto Teint Eclat- perfect skin in a bottle, a sheer yet buildable liquid foundation, smooth and imperceptible
Phyto Mascara- Ultra Volume in So Blue- I know strange? Use black mascara 1st and then apply the blue to the *tip* of the upper lashes- it *pops* the eye and makes the whites of the eye sparkle.
