Wouldn't it be simply amazing to take flawless pictures without having to worry how your face will look?

Well, Revlon's photoready line promises you this - a picture-ready look anywhere, anytime.

According to sales and marketing manager at Beauty Concepts limited, Desaree Roberts, the Revlon PhotoReady line comes with products that will give you the perfect, flawless face for any occasion. The product line includes foundation, powder, mascara and the sculpting blush palette.

"The PhotoReady foundation gives you a photo-finish appearance and because it absorbs light, it is great for taking pictures. As it relates to the PhotoReady airbrush which is very new, it comes in a mousse form. It is very lightweight and silky to the touch, giving a light and flawless look," says Roberts.

She also notes that to enhance the overall look, the photoready 3D volume mascara exaggerates the lashes you are blessed with. "It adds length, volume and gives off the appearance that there is more by magnifying and multiplying lashes".

And if you have ever heard about contouring, which is commonly used in photo shoots, you can get this done in the comfort of your own home.

Enhancing your features

The photoReady sculpting palette allows you to enhance your best features which will be the focus especially in pictures. "This palette comes with three colours, allowing you to sculpt your cheeks with the use of the highlight, dark contour colour and blush colour."

Another concern women may have with make-up is the lasting nature of products. Roberts says there is the ColorStay line designed to be long lasting.

"In this line they have recently added the 16-hour colorstay eyeshadows. They come in vibrant colours and are crease and smudge proof".

Another good addition to the line is the diamond lust which is said to be high pigmented and is perfect for night-time wear.

To show you the effects of the PhotoReady and colorStay lines, Roberts used models, Shana Passley, Keisha Stewart and Monique Rose to show off three different looks.
