The Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream goes smoothly on my skin, all I use is my hands but if you want to get fancy you can use a foundation brush. It cover any imperfections perfectly (pun intended) it’s like foundation and concealer in one. And it’s loaded with gentle ingredient and not harsh chemicals. Really a must-have!

MAC Prep+Prime Beauty Balm SPF35

Introducing MAC Prep+Prime Beauty Balm SPF35 available NOW in the permanent line at ONLY.

Who isn’t in awe of the superstar multi-tasker? The high performance artist who attracts our praise because of the perfection of every single action…the awe-inspiring high – level results? Our key candidate: MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm. Lightly tinted in a clear, nearly sheer beige tone to work on a universal array of complexions, it creamily re-texturizes the skin and then goes on to excel at being a colour perfector and face primer with high everyday UVA/UVB SPF 35/PA +++ defense. Beauty Balm lightly hydrates the skin and blurs out lines, adding the optical effects that illuminate the skin. A sublime case of: “She’s fabulous…How DOES she do it?”

FusionBeauty Prime Results Brightening Primer

I tend to skip primers simply because with my hectic schedule it’s just an extra step for me and also because some of them actually so thick and flakey they interfere with my foundation. Sounds familiar? I do though like FusionBeauty Brightening Primer though. It’s designed to blur skin imperfections and because it doesn’t do all that bad stuff I just described. It’s smooth and seamless and it evens out my skin. It’s color purple at first then turns into a neutral skin tone shade.

Maggie Gyllenhaal Oscars 2010

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s 2010 Oscars makeup look by COVERGIRL celebrity makeup artist Molly R. Stern.

“The finished product was perfection. She looked like herself. Authentic, cool and beautiful. Being a part of Oscar day with a nominee is such an honor. It’s like an actress’ wedding day with Hollywood. I love being here. I feel so blessed.”-Molly R. Stern

How to get Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Oscars 2010 makeup look by Molly R. Stern: Maggie is the muse of spring. Her Dries Van Noten gown is a swirl of bright colors that fades into white. For her makeup I wanted to bring out the color of her eyes with some depth while keeping with the brightness of her overall style.

We started off the look by refreshing the skin with Jurlique Rose Water spray. Then I prepped the skin with Shu Uemura red:juvenus vitalizing concentrate and lightly moisturized with La Mer moisturizing lotion.

For a flawless complexion I primed Maggie’s skin with COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless Serum Primer (out in July 2010!!).
