Make Up! Motives by Loren Ridinger

The other day I went to Judy’s place to have something nice for my face.
Who is Judy? Judy is my workmate and she is a cosmetic consultant with Motives By Loren Ridinger which is a division of Market Australia.

The company has a huge range of skincare, make-up and custom mineral powders all catering to normal, dry, oily, problematic & sensitive skin. The products feel beautiful and are easy to use.

Judy had everything ready and nicely presented for me when I got there. It was so nice, I started taking photos of everything. Her make-up kit is so professional and I don’t know how she can remember it all! I guess this is why she is a cosmetic consultant and I’m not! I know nothing about make-up, to be honest :P

One thing that really impressed me was the box full of disposable applicators. The company teaches its consultants to be clean and hygienic and a new mascara wand, spatula or lipstick brush will be used for each new client.

Okay, let’s talk about what Judy did to pamper me that day. First she asked me to try this! This is something that I am amazed about. This is the Lip Pumice. She gave me some of it to exfoliate away the dry, dead skin off my lips and make my lips nice and smooth.

There’s also a Lip Plumper to make my lips pout like Angelina Jolie too! hehehe

Then we did the skincare using Skintelligence which is hypoallengic. First we cleansed my face with the Deep Cleanser, it feels so gentle.. After rinsing, we used the PH Skin Normaliser, the Cellular Perfecting Complex serum and the Daily Moisture Enhancer.

The skincare felt so beautiful and my skin felt refreshed! Judy also applied a primer as this is going to make my minerals last on my face even longer.

What I love about these products is that they have everything that’s essential and its in easy-to-use packaging. The products are smooth and non-greasy which I think is good for my skin.

Okay, done with the skincare. My skin is now a clean canvas and we are ready to do my Custom Mineral powder make-up consultation! Yes, mineral powder!

But this is not normal mineral powder that’s sold in packets and I’m limited to one or two colours. This mineral powder is customised especially for me from twelve different shades!

Judy analysed the tones in my skin and lips. She asked me about my preferences for make-up and whether I liked a flat or a shimmery look. Then she picked out my mineral shades and mixed them to create a separate face powder, blusher and bronzer to suit my skin tone exactly! Very cool isn’t it? As its custom made, I no longer worry about buying a mineral powder that’s too light, dark or orange for my skin tone.

While Judy was mixing the Custom Mineral powders she was also recording it. So in the future when I run out of the mineral powder, I can reorder it from her easily! It was very interesting to see how she did the math and mix the right colours and portions to match my exact skin tone.

Look at it! So amazing isn’t it?

Time to apply it onto my face!

Remember the Lip Plumper I talked about before? She can even add some of my pink mineral shade to the Lip Plumper so its a Custom Mineral Tinted Lip Plumper!

I purchased the mineral face powder to use and Judy tipped my mixed powder into the brush handle. I just pump it and the powder comes up into the bristles of the brush!

Honestly, I’m a person who doesn’t usually use make‑up and have no clue at all about these things. But I have to say, this Custom Mineral powder is the best make‑up I have ever tried. Its not too heavy and it leaves my skin looking natural and smooth with a glow and it only takes seconds to put on ~ I love it!

Judy told me a lot about the products and I'm surprised that I can remember it!

Motives By Loren Ridinger was the featured line in the 2009 Miami Fashion Show and its make‑up artist, consultant, and salon exclusive.

The minerals are hypoallergenic and free of chemicals, fillers and dyes. They also moisturise the skin with vitamins A, C, E and Squalane which will keep my skin moist throughout the day.

Custom Mineral Consultations like the one I had are $25 each which is fully redeemable with purchase of any make-up or skincare.

Consultations are conducted in the comfort and privacy of your own home :)
