The #CornSilkSelfie Winners That Put Their Own Twist On A Classic Look

You may not know the name, but you may recognise the Corn Silk pack from your grandmother's dressing table; this vintage beauty secret has been used by women since the late 1960’s and continues to be a firm favourite with beauty enthusiasts and makeup artists alike. Face powders (loose or pressed) are the ultimate weapon against shiny complexions and a must during the sunny season when our makeup has a tendency to shift; the Corn Silk natural walnut formula has been designed to work with, not against, oily skin giving you a long-lasting, flawless finish that doesn’t clog up your pores. It's a product I love - along with a touch of red lipstick and a flick of black liner - when I want to create a flawless modern twist on a classic look. A few weeks ago Corn Silk and I set you lovely lot a challenge to create your own take on 'modern vintage' and here is the result. (Read my first post here.) All the beautiful faces featured (click 'read more' to find out if it's you!) have nabbed themselves a special prize, with one lucky lady scooping £100 to spend at her local department store on all the makeup she chooses!

Look at that spectrum of 'modern vintage' interpretations! Each one of the ladies featured have managed to grab themselves a Corn Silk Goodie bag, while the delightful Missa (centre) from BeautyAndTheLittleLady has been chosen at random to receive the £100 voucher. Hoorah! It was a pleasure to see all your looks pop up on my Instagram and Twitter feed, each one of you putting your own unique twist on the looks created by celebrity makeup artist Aimee Adams - a huge fan of Corn Silk herself who swears by the product to create a flawless finish on all her famous faces. (Have a look at how she created the looks here.)

If you've never experienced the Corn Silk magic, then you're in for a treat. Corn Silk’s ultra light, mineral enriched formulation soaks up the excess surface oil throughout the day to leave skin feeling fresh-faced. There's no clogging or cakey feeling often associated with powder, plus the lightweight formula helps reduce the possibility of breakouts (which are caused by blocked pores.) You can buff the product directly onto skin, or apply a light dusting over your base to fix foundation in place, to provide long-lasting shine control and an airbrushed finish - whatever your skin tone. The universal shade doesn't 'cover' but works with your skin and your natural complexion for an effortless result; it's the ultimate weapon in creating that perfect selfie!

Why not give it a go yourself this summer...
