Finding your perfect everyday makeup base is probably one of the hardest things in the world of makeup in my eyes. I like a base that provides light to medium coverage, but covers up my dark circles, is slightly glowy and lasts through the working day. So quite a lot, but I think I may have actually found my perfect everyday makeup base, and today’s post is all about the three products that create this base.
THE ORDINARY HIGH-ADHERENCE SILICONE PRIMER
The first product that helps create my perfect everyday makeup base is The Ordinary’s High-Adherence Silicone primer. I like to apply this to the more troublesome areas of my face, where I know my makeup tends to break up much easier, aka my nose, under my eyes and on my chin. This primer is more of a moisturiser looking formula but it is a brilliant product. It sinks in quickly and fills in my pores. I also love that once dry it becomes tacky which makes me believe my foundation actually has something to stick too.
BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX ANTI-FATIGUE FOUNDATION
Once my primer is tacky and ready to go, I move onto the next step of my perfect everyday makeup base, foundation. This involves the Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue foundation*, a foundation that not only leaves a glowy finish but also provides medium coverage that can be built up to higher coverage where needed. It’s a foundation that leaves my skin looking incredibly healthy, I adore the finish. Combined with the primer it lasts through my working day too.
MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONCEAL & DEFINE FULL COVERAGE CONCEAL AND CONTOUR
The final step of my perfect everyday makeup base is a much newer product to my collection, the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Conceal and Contour. This is a concealer said to be a dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape concealer, which whilst I can’t comment on that, it is an amazing one. It really does provide full coverage where I need it and I love the applicator. As it is large I don’t have to keep dipping my concealer in and out, just one dip is more than enough to cover where I need. I like to use it with my Eco Tools sponge, that blends the concealer with ease.
And, that completes my perfect everyday makeup base. I absolutely adore the fresh-faced glowy finish these three products create, but the best part is it lasts through my working day and everything is budget friendly.
