When I have a flawless base, I always feel more than ready to slay the day. It took me a while to find the right products and also what products work wonders together, but I’ve finally nailed it and I’m so happy with the results right now. I’ve got a whole range of products here, including skincare and makeup, and also cater for different base finishes, as I like to switch it up.
Starting with skincare there are two products that I always reach for that I know encourage that flawless base. First up is the Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot, which is a beautiful hydrating serum that I mix in with my moisturiser. This little dream of a product helps add radiance and nourishment to keep your skin hydrated all day. The moisturiser of choice I add this to is also a product I use to achieve my fuss-free flawless base, which is the Origins GinZing Moisturiser. This is by far my favourite; its super lightweight yet gives you a burst of moisture. These two don’t leave any oiliness either so you can begin with makeup application right away.
Of course, this couldn’t be a ‘flawless skin’ post without mentioning my newest favourite, the Yves Saint Laurent Touché Eclat Blur Primer – a must if I’m going for the unblemished skin look. This primer blurs imperfections whilst at the same time giving luminosity to the skin – an incredible primer to help your makeup last and last.
Now, I’ve got three very different coverage and finishes here. However, I do always apply them the same way with a damp beauty blender. Starting with my favourite and most used of the moment, a medium coverage and dewy finish. I get this by using the L’Oreal True Match Foundation, which is a lightweight buy generic amoxil super blendable foundation that is formulated with ingredients to colour match your skin tone and texture. I love this for everyday as it gives a buildable coverage and lasts amazingly for a drugstore foundation. If you love dewiness but opt for a lighter coverage then the Urban Decay One & Done Foundation would be the one for you. Its formula is more like a BB cream but with added coverage, as it’s easy to wear this skin perfecting foundation alone – it just looks like your skin but ‘better’.
If you want a full coverage to night-time glam I have been obsessing with a certain combination. It’s the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation with the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Stick for contouring. The foundation itself has received many mixed reviews, but I was thrilled to find it worked really well with my skin. It has a matte full coverage but doesn’t give the ‘flatness’ that some can give, and it does last all night. I love this for perfecting your skin and giving the ultimate flawless coverage. The MUFE HD Stick is one I picked up for contouring so it’s a lot darker than my skin tone, and I love this for cream contour. You only need a tiny amount for the right effect. I would love to try this in my skin tone to see what it’s like for a full face of foundation.
To set the foundation of choice I always go for the Nars Light Relfecting Loose Setting Powder. I never bake with this as it can be quite heavy, but I tend to set by concealed/highlighted areas with this before continuing with bronzer, blush and highlighter. It’s gorgeous for flash photography to.
