Once again, Make Up For Ever is the official make up sponsor for this year’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim and here are the looks created on Day 1.

At the Dolores Cortés show, makeup artist Lottie created a beautiful safari-chic make up look inspired by bohemian references of the 50’s Parisian woman, combined with acid and exotic colors from Bells Beach in Australia. The end result was a palette of shimmering greens and golds.

joeyZEN asked: Do you know of any foundations/powders that would hide dry spots? Like I have these dry, peely patches around my forehead and near my nose that show up REALLY bad when I have any powder on. I still have yet to find something that may hide it or reduce the “peely” presentation. Do you have any tips or advice? I’ve already tried exfoliators, concealers and applying additional coats of moisturizer after the powder but it only works for a short period of time.”

So long MAC Fix+ ! You have been officially replaced by my latest HG, Skindinavia Original Makeup Finishing Spray.

Utilizing a time-release cryogenic technology, the Makeup Finishing Spray helps to extend makeup wear and color hold for up to 16 hours. Simply put, it works by lowering makeup’s temperature to prevent makeup from melting or sliding. The spray is also oil-free, paraben-free, color-less and comes with a nice, breathable scent.

Like most makeup-setting sprays, this does an excellent job toning down cakey foundation, freshening makeup and creating a dewy look. But what really sets it aside is its superb ability to lock in foundation, concealer, blush and even eyeshadow. Whenever I use the Makeup Finishing Spray, my makeup stays on perfect for at least a good old 12 hours with zero blotting or touching up.
