I have never had beautiful skin, I have tried skincare product after skincare product and nothing has ever worked long-term. I would love the kind of natural perfect skin that so many other beauty bloggers have but it is not to be. Whilst watching television the other day I saw an info-mercial on Sheer Cover cosmetics. They showed a few different girls with skin blemishes far worse than mine that resulted in beautiful radiant skin after using the Sheer Cover range. Now I am no fool, I know these things can be touched up on screen but I also think that everything or anyone deserves a chance.
Sheer Cover Kit in Light
The Sheer Cover kit comes complete with everything you need for natural looking skin, Conceal & Brighten Trio, Perfect Shade Mineral Foundation, Sun-Kissed Bronzing Minerals, Lengthening Mascara, Lash Extending Fibers and three brushes. I couldn’t wait to try it out as soon as the postman delivered the parcel and so here are my results.
Step One: Conceal
Sheer Cover Conceal & Brighten Trio
Firstly I cleansed and moisturised my skin so that I had a nice fresh base to work with. I then applied the Conceal & Brighten Trio Concealer with the Concealer Brush, using both shades of the concealer to achieve a shade that was right for my skin.

Step Two: Brighten
In the Conceal & Brighten Trio there is a little compartment with a brightening formula inside, using the Concealer Brush again, I dabbed the brightener under my brow bones and at the inner and outer corner of each eye.
Step Three: Cover
Mineral Foundation and Foundation Brush
Now it is time for the Mineral Foundation – you simply shake the powder into the lid, dip the Foundation brush into the lid and tap off any excess powder. Then, in a circular motion, from the outside of the face working inward, gradually blend the Mineral Foundation over your cheeks, nose, chin and forehead.

Step Four: Illuminate
Bronzer and Slanted Brush
Apply the Sun-Kissed Bronzing Minerals by lightly dusting on the areas of your face that would normally catch the sunshine. I used the third brush for this as it has a slanted angle to it and so is perfect for applying on cheekbones.

Step Five: Lengthen
Lengthening Mascara and Lash Extending Fibers
Firstly, apply a layer of the Lengthening Mascara and then a layer of the Lash Extending Fibers, followed by another coat of the Lengthening Mascara. I have used similar lash fibres to these before and they are one of my make-up bag essentials as I have really short fine lashes and these really help to build up my lashes.
After applying the Lash Extending Fibers
I chose the Light shade of Sheer Cover products and this was perfect for my fair skin, none of the products were too dark or too pale, they blended perfectly. I was really pleased with the results I got from this kit, my skin looked really natural but radiant, and there was no greasy, heavy feeling which I often get from liquid foundations. The Mineral Foundation also has an SPF of 15 and so is great for protecting your skin too. At just £29.99 for the whole kit, this was cheaper than one bottle of my regular liquid foundation and so doesn’t break the bank either.
