Recently I have just become obsessed with using the same products for my base every single day rather than trying to experiment therefore I thought I would show you all what I have been enjoying to use.
Talk about this product so so much but I will rave about it until I find something better which I am not sure will happen! I use the Seventeen 3 Way Highlighter as a primer to create a radiant glow achieving my dewy, fresh base that I love so much. It's not only a great dupe of the Loreal Lumi Magique but also the Benefit High Beam too! It just lifts your foundation so much and makes you look incredibly healthy as if you've come back from a holiday with that sort of glow that you get.
I adore the Rimmel Match Perfection although extremely dark for 'True Ivory' it aims to give light perfecting radiance which I 100% agree with! Its great for those dry skin days, because its getting so cold I have been really struggling with my skin at the moment, and also conceals anything and everything. With this foundation I don't use a concealer for my spots or any redness because it gives such a flawless coverage. A little definitely goes a long way with this product too which I always love because it means I can't run out of it quickly haha!
To get rid of them awful awful bags under my eyes my go to has been the Maybelline Eraser Eye concealer. I do the old triangles under the my eyes and it does a fabulous job of brightening under my eyes as well as providing full coverage that lasts all day.
To give a warmth to my complexion the Benefit Hoola bronzer is always my first choice, using a fan brush I just do the 3 trick (temple, the underside of the cheekbone, jawline/chin) and I've also started to apply it on my hairline too, weird I know! I love this bronzer because as I have said before its not orange toned and is very matte which for me creates a natural look.
I also used another bronzer in an attempt to contour my nose (you are allowed to laugh) I use the Loreal Glam Bronze Wild Instinct powder. The brush that comes with it is perfect to contour nose and make it look thinner. I am explaining it so well aren't I?
For blusher I use the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12hr blush in Blissful. Its such a pretty warm peach colour that is so pigmented yet natural at the same time. The texture is so easy to blend also.
I also like a bit of shimmer on my blush as well as some highlight on my cheekbone. The Beauty UK baked blush in Halo has a lovely pale pink colour with a lot of shimmer!
As I love to go over the top with my highlighting, I use the MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder which is supposed to be a good dupe of a MAC Mineral Skin Finish. It has such a soft and silky texture that when applied is very shimmery. For its incredibly cheap price its amazing!
To highlight again on my cheekbones (I feel sorry for them sometimes) I apply the Lord & Berry Luminizer Highlighter & Concealer Stick. It's a creamy highlight which really helps achieving the dewy look I love.
To powder my face I use the Clinique To Go Set powder which is in the little travel set. The powder is perfect for setting my makeup as well as ensuring that I don't look too look much like a disco ball/sweaty betty. It reminds me very much of the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder but not as light in coverage and natural as this sort of gives a colour too.
And thats everything! Sorry for the inconsistent lighning in the pictures! What are your top products for your base/foundation routine? Comment below.
