Gerard Cosmetics BB+Illumination Creme: looks like Emily Blunt wore in Edge of Tomorrow

Hello Gorgeous!

I just saw the Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt movie called Edge of Tomorrow. I like sci fi. I like Tom Cruise movies ( except Jack Reacher) and I like Emily Blunt.

 The movie is good because it is sort of a new story. ( sort of Halo'ish) The over all production is good too. It just takes a long time to get going. Besides, the line up of movies coming out the rest of the year is one big line up of yawn. Do overs. Repeats and sequels with prequels.

So let's tie a product into this movie review!

Emily Blunt has some scenes in the movie where her makeup is absolutely radiant! It could be the lighting, it could be editing treatment, but I'm thinking a lot of thanks goes to the amazing team of makeup artists assembled for this production.

So enter Gerard Cosmetics BB+Illuminating Facial Creme...

 In my personal experience, (and when wanting to look like Emily Blunt character Sergeant Rita Vrataski in Edge of Tomorrow) I applied a thin layer over my moisturizer and added bronzer for a fresh summer look.

On me, I used very sparingly, in general I don't like shiny makeup. I think my freckles reflect more? Here is a swatch of the creme. It looks beautiful over makeup, though I prefer it under.

 Overall, I think the movie is good enough for a matinee price. You may as well go and see it because it is one of the few movies that is semi-original. Enjoy!
