Manasi Make Up
When a professional makeup artist can’t find exactly what they’re looking for amongst the millions of products available, then you know there’s a gap in the market. Susanne Persson, a Swedish makeup artist, mixes her own ‘just perfect’ products to get exactly the right texture and pay-off.
There are currently only two products – a creme bronzer and an ultrafine finishing powder. The bronzer is a light bronze, meaning that you can build it and more importantly, buff it to a very polished looking finish. It’s the kind of texture that catches the light really easily but has no brick or orange tones to it. I think it’s probably the ideal bronze for cooler tones because of its gentleness.
I’m not a powder fan, but the Manasi Makeup ultrafine is exactly that – an ultrafine powder that is traceless on the skin (any tone) – more of a setter of makeup than anything else which you can see is a very useful tool in a professional kit. It contains only two ingredients – Silica and Sericite.
It’s so lovely to see an indi brand that has gone for quality above all else – it’s a tiny, tiny brand and I hope it gets its deserved chance to shine in the UK media as much as it has in nordic press. Needless to say, there are no minerals, no palm oils, no parabens, phthalates or animal testing.
Lyster Cream Bronzer is £36.
If they’re wondering why on-line sales aren’t high, it’s because it’s impossible to navigate – I had a go and literally couldn’t get it into the cart, so if you’re keen, I suggest that you contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
