RMK Power of Love Makeover


Last month I popped down to the RMK counter in Selfridges Manchester to learn about the new collection and have my makeup done using the new products. If you have read my blog for a while you'll know my love for the skin care and makeup from RMK and I think Lucy who did my makeup was quite surprised when I was reeling off the list of products I use from the brand as most people haven't heard much about it.

I had a good hour of makeup removing, moisturising, priming, makeup-ing and learnt about all the new range and products in their existing line (my shopping list has expanded quite a bit!) and I took away some of the products and my face chart so thought I'd try and recreate the look at home.

The new reformulated Creamy Foundation (Link) was applied and the finish of it is lovely for the coming months as it has a lovely glow to it and as skin tends to be more dry in the winter you can get away with a bit more shine than the summer, like the original it is incredibly light on the skin but the coverage is lovely and is definitely buildable in the areas you might need it.


Lucy then started work on my eyes with the new Matte Shiny Eyes (Link) in the Bronze shade, this duo crayon and shadow is seriously great for your makeup bag and I've used mine everyday since I got it as it's so quick and easy. I apply the crayon side up to my crease then blend with my finger as it's so effortless and I use the shadow side patted over the crayon. The effect is lovely bronzed eyes which are so sparkly and definitely (dare I say it) one for the Christmas party paired with a black winged liner, the lasting power is excellent as well so great for everyday use I think I might get another colour too because they're just such an easy option.

A good lashing of mascara is always needed when there's no liquid liner involved in an eye look and the new Matte mascara (Link) doesn't disappoint, it is like mega lashes, long and volumised in a jiffy and the brown shade RMK offer I love as it brings such warmth to the eyes.
 

The final touch was the stunning Matte Shiny Cheeks Power (Link) of Love blushes, there are four to choose from and of course I chose the peach, I took home the Natural Bronze shade and it adds such a gorgeous warm sheen to your cheeks nothing sparkly or glittery just a gorgeous warm glow which finishes the look perfectly.


I had such a fun time getting made up and all the girls were super lovely and knowledgeable about their products and even on my face chart my hair was shaded pink which I thought was a lovely touch, if you're around Manchester I really suggest you pop in for some pampering because they're such good fun to be around and the products are fantastic. The new Power of Love products are lovely introductions into your makeup collection and I haven't put mine down since I got them.
