♡ Perfecting a flawless base ♡

May 08, 2019

 When you are wearing makeup everyday, you need to perfect your base. The perfect base will make your makeup and help it last so much better thought the day and it’s what we all want I’ve tried so many products - primers, foundations, concealers and powders bur I think I’ve found my favourite current concoction - but it can change. I always want my base to be perfect and at the moment, it pretty much is! I like dewy base and I want it to last without getting oily and I’m confident I’ve achieved it.

 To start with I use a primer. I Know some people choose not to use one but I personally prefer using a primer as I think it makes my make up last so much longer and can help my skin look amazing. A primer is the perfect way of starting your base it’s what helps hold on your face all day. Personally my favourite primer is YSL Touche eclat blue primer.

 Once you’ve applied Primer, it’s foundation time. Foundation is the base so it’s so important to have your perfect foundation and use it. Get foundation that caters your skins needs and lasts all day - personally I love a high Coverage foundation with a dewy finish. My favourite foundation for every day is the Clarins everlasting as it has a thick texture, full coverage and lasts so well on my skin - I feel like it’s made for me!

 Recently I found a new undereye Concealer that has change my life. My auntie gave me it as she thought I would use it more than her and she was right - it’s in my everyday collection now and my complete go to. For the perfect base you need a good coverage concealer which will last and conceal all the bags - I think I found it. The Amazing cosmetics Is out of this world with coverage and you need the smallest amount so it sure does last.

 Then for overall concealer for me is any necessary this is my final piece to help perfect my base as it covers up all impurities and makes my skin look airbrushed. my go to is the make up Revolution conceal and define concealer. This is such an affordable price and has amazing coverage which works perfectly with my skin and leaves my base looking flawless.

 Personally I don’t like my base to be set with a powder as it remove that dew and glow I want - throughout the day when my face begins to get oily, I will matify it down.

 Everyone has different steps for a perfect base as it specific to them and meets their skins needs - I’m so glad I’ve found mine with some amazing products to help me look my best throughout the day. This is what I’ve used all winter and I’ve had my skin look the best it ever has with makeup.
