All about that Base
Tarte Maracuja Oil - I love using this oil underneath makeup, it helps my Concealer blend so much better
Hangover Rx Too Faced - ive talked about this before, I love how hydrating this feels, it has no silicone so I don't think it fills pores well but it makes my makeup last longer
Maybelline Baby Skin - I've always enjoyed using this, it has a silicone feel and makes my skin feel super smooth, gives a great base to Concealer application
Illamasqua Radiance Veil Illuminating Primer - this is glow overload, so I use it mixed in with my tinted moisturiser, I personally love how glowy and dewy it makes me look
Still on the hunt for the perfect base, what's your favourite Primer ?
Let's be honest, I don't go to MnS much unless it's for food or cards. However I have been converted lately because I'm obsessed with their Magnolia cream and this beauty of a highlighter!
It's super glossy and gold, more of a wet look metallic highlight but on my skintone it looks so dewy.
I don't reach for it much because it's not my ideal choice for daytime wear, but with more glamorous looks, it's perfect !
Benefit Boing Concealer
Given this by my sister and because the colour is so off, I use it to colour correct.
Honestly, I don't care much for the texture, I find it slightly drying and hard to work into the skin. It's a fairly stiff Concealer, full coverage but very thick. Not much of a fan but just trying to use it up!
I much prefer my KIKO pot Concealer, get that instead
Illamasqua Radiance Veil Illuminating Primer
I had this off my sister when she received it as a sample so I agreed to use it up.
I was so not prepared to fall in love with it ! it looks like a liquid highlighter when dispensed, but I mix it in with my tinted moisturiser and it gives me such a dewy glow !
It's a pink/champagne colour when out the tube, but blends very sheerly as the swatch shows.
It does have glitter in it, so be prepared for serious glow but all in all, I'm a fan. You also need the smallest amount so I'm happy with this sample size, but I'd consider buying the full size too !
Thumbs up, have you tried this ? What did you think ?
Smashbox Xmas Gifts
I've never owned anything by Smashbox so I'm so excited to finally try a few things !
The primer has been on my list for ages so I'm looking forward to seeing how it compares to Baby Skin and Porefessional.
Christmas Gifts happy new year ! I know I've been M.I.A but I'm back, I've been enjoying my Xmas break so took a little social media holiday too.
I finally have a Zoeva product ! Don't you love best friends who support you your makeup addiction ;) (@satvir09@jesse2407 )
