 Translucent Loose Setting Powder –  Laura Mercier

 Translucent Loose Setting Powder -  LAURA MERCIER


What it is: Finely milled and weightless, this flawless invisible powder features micro-refined silica and soft-focus light-reflecting particles, which instantly blur imperfections and minimises the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles without creasing or caking. Available in two hues, ‘Translucent’ and ‘Translucent Medium Deep’ and suitable for all skin tones, the formula is translucent, gliding on to give an invisible natural skin finish, effortlessly. It’s clear why this is the undisputed classic setting powder.

What it does: This fan favourite setting powder feels sublimely soft, setting make up without adding weight or texture. Applying to skin silky smooth, this invisible setting powder casts a flawless, skin-perfecting veil over the complexion while avoiding creasing and caking. Simply swirl your brush in the powder and sweep across the t-zone or under eye and watch this miracle worker blur pores, mattify and control oils as well as brighten and lift your look. We’re obsessed!

How to use: Sprinkle a little powder into the top of the powder lid, then dip a brush or sponge into the powder and apply to the desired areas to set, bake or brighten the skin. Always apply after creamy formulas and not before.

The “Not Dead Yet” review of the Beyou App

“The beauty of this app, it allows you to select a make-up artist that best suits you, according to their filter tips: by price range, ratings, closest to you or county.

You create a personal profile, giving your basic details and any skin issues you may have, so the makeup artist can know in advance and can discuss this further with you, once you’ve made your booking.

Once you have registered you have a few choices as to how you can proceed. You can request a quote by completing the scheduled appointment card. A personalised makeup session lasts approximately 60 minutes. Ensure you provide the date, time choice of inspiration; BEYOU Beautiful (that’s a natural look) right through to the ravishing revenge look. You can opt to include eyelashes, as well as book for a small or large group of you and your friends. Note, if having a group session, you will be charged per person, according to your set budget. Budgets can start from as little as £35 ranging through to £125. The second way to book is to view the selection of artists on the app via their ratings and bio which will include their level of experience. Once you’ve found someone that fits your bill, you’ll be taken to ‘request a booking’, here you go into more detail as to what it is you require. All bookings and payments are made through BEYOU, who are the booking agent for the makeup artists.

Are you Dead Yet Review

All the BEYOU artists either come through recommendations or through ones they have personally scouted during visits to department/ makeup stores. The BEYOU team ensure their artists all have insurance and adhere to the BEYOU terms and conditions.

Having tried the app myself, it’s very easy to use and the BEYOU team are constantly keeping you up to date once you’ve made a booking.

I have to say I was thoroughly impressed with the level of service provided by the BEYOU makeup artist Holly G. She was highly professional bringing her own equipment but happy to use my own makeup if I preferred. She kept to the brief I gave, which was to try and keep the look as natural as possible but make it transferable from day to a night time look. Holly G was very good at explaining her exact process, whilst applying to make me feel comfortable, as well as providing makeup tips, because I’m useless LOL.

What I like about the app, is that you can have a make-over in the comfort of your home, at a price you can afford, on a day that is convenient to you and you can have multiple friends join you. BEYOU makeup artists also cater to all different skin types and tones, which is essential if you have any allergies or differing shades. For I was made aware by Holly G (makeup artist) that I have 3 different skin tones, so one shade was not suitable for the entire coverage, to give me that natural look, it had to be blended with other palettes.

This is definitely a service I would recommend and use again, especially to have an evening with the girls or to have a makeup tutorial.

Thanks to the BEYOU team for helping me to accentuate my natural beauty.

An Interview with our founders Part 2

 Beyou’s founders Charlotte Green (CG) and Nawal Alkhedairy (NA) answer questions about how they are expanding their community of makeup artists and where Beyou is going next?


What do you look for in a make-up artist?

CG:We recruit all our makeup artists either through professional recommendations or by scouting directly from retail venues.  We have a strict vetting process for all new MUAs and insist on seeing their portfolios.

Makeup Artist

How can make-up artists get in touch with you to join and what can make them stand out for you on Instagram?

NA:We love to hear from makeup artists from across the country. We’re constantly on the look-out for great talent.  It always helps if MUAs on Instagram show their full range of skills, update regularly, and have personal testimonials from existing clients.


What has been your happiest moment since starting Beyou?

CG: Seeing the actual concept come to life from start to finish; it’s such a great feeling still seeing the Beyou app live in App Store.

NA: Also getting client feedback. We are part of so many people’s lives now, whether it’s for their Big Day, prom, graduation or getting them ready for a date, the feedback that we get is one of our biggest motivators. Charlotte and I are so heavily involved in client facing and communication as we don’t want to lose the human touch and high quality of service even though it’s a digital service that we essentially provide.


What’s next for you both and the app?

CG:We’re capitalising on our nationwide success across Britain by launching in Ibiza on 10 May. We’re very excited! The White Island has long been synonymous with some of the world’s most glamorous parties, exclusive editorial shoots and high-end, high-octane, celebrity-filled events. It, therefore, seems the natural next step for us to offer our portable, on-demand, glam-on-the-go services there.

NA:Famously free-spirited Ibiza attracts all kinds of different people from all over the world, of different ages, tastes, looks, skin types and hair – and, of course, with different budgets.

We’re confident that amongst our carefully selected, world-class glam squad located in Ibiza there will be the perfect makeup artist for every client, every occasion and every budget.

CG: And we also have ambitious strategic growth plans to push into other key destinations throughout Europe later this year. This is just the start!
