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.)
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
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…
