I’m always on the lookout for things that make my makeup stay put on stage. I’m in love with the Benefit PORE-fessional, but I don’t always need to use this. Alas, since I was having a particularly bad face day during the last two gigs, I used this around my cheek area but decided to try out one of my beauty box delights, Gerda Spillmann Hydro Pearls Make-up primer.

I found the Hydro Pearls a little watery when I applied it, however it went on more like a moisturiser which seemed to give me more coverage. My foundation went on brilliantly and I was very impressed by the durability.

I finished putting my makeup on at around 16:30 in the afternoon, played a 40 minute set with Dakesis and came got home around 12:30am.

Despite sweating my behind off on stage, the end result is pretty damn impressive!

These were taken before bed & makeup removal – the second one obviously being for pure comical value!

Oh yeah … did I forget to mention the blonde? This is a temporary measure – I figured that having a break from Red, would a) allow the current fashion world to pick a new color and b) make it super super bright when I dye it again.

To conclude, this is definitely a product I will be using more often for gig days and will put on my “must buy in the near future” list.

You can buy Gerda Spillmann Hydro Pearls for £30 shiny pennies via the Birchbox website and you can pickup Benefit The POREfessional from Boots for £24.50.

Totally hellbent for 2 being a prime number ;o)
