let's talk about foundation ♥

It's been a while since I spoke about my foundation routine and what my favourite products are. I cannot live without foundation, it completely transforms my skin and just evens out my patchy complexion. As I mentioned earlier this week in my money saving blog post, I do use quite a few foundations. I use the NYC Skin Matching Luminizer as my work foundation - I don't mind using this everyday while I'm at my desk and for £3 it really does create lovely coverage and a warm glow to my skin without needing to add anything else. If I am going on holiday or tanning at the weekend, I will use a dash of the MAC Pro Longwear liquid foundation. I actually bought this foundation at the airport and the MAC make-up artist was absolutely awful at matching my skin. I walked away with this shade and it is far too dark for my actual skin tone so to make sure it doesn't go to waste, I simply add a few drops to my regular foundation if I want to go slightly darker. I used this shade when I went to New York and although it blended perfectly and provided gorgeous thick coverage, it just looked far too orange on my skin. 

Having your boyfriend call you an 'oompa loompa' for the entire holiday is not a plus point in my book...although I can't use the MAC foundation on my skin by itself, I can add a few pumps to my regular foundation if I want a slightly darker look. For the foundation I use out of the office, I mix the Stila Stay All Day Foundation and the Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid foundation together. I cannot express how much I love the Stila foundation, it is probably one of the first foundations to give me flawless coverage and it does not look oily a few hours later. It really does live up to its name and I definitely recommend this foundation if you want to jazz up your make-up routine. This is certainly a foundation I will keep buying and buying. The Maybelline Dream Satin foundation is another gem that I love using when I am running to an event or a night out with the girls, it has a better formula than NYC just because the texture is incredibly easy to blend into your skin and it looks very subtle and soft. The Maybelline and Stila Stay All Day foundations are certainly my top 2 foundations that I will always purchase, I feel really confident wearing them without any other products. What are your top foundations? Do you have any tips for creating flawless skin? I would love to hear how many foundations you use!

  1. you should do 2 to a few sets and 8 to twelve reps of each set. You need to appoint revolutionary overload while you're able to finish a hard and fast wide variety of reps conveniently. http://musclegainfast.com/muscle-science/

  2. It can be so difficult to get the right formula/shade match. I usually blend Rimmel Clean Finish (love the finish but the lightest shade is too dark for me) with the Maybelline Better Skin (right shade)!

  3. These new models have a matte replica watches uk steel case with black or blue dial options. A knurled unidirectional bezel, blinding luminosity, and even a helium release valve, while dialing back the ultra macho. By going with a matte steel case finish, a more minimalist dial with square applied indices instead of the busy swiss replica watches and a solid, ceramic bezel characterized by its singularly smooth surface and extremely sharp, grippy serrations. As mentioned previously, the end breitling replica sale is one of the more cohesive, purpose built divers in the watches store, but one that is altogether replica watches sale and masculine without appearing to be making great pains to remind you. It was argued that the average price point of replica watches was too high for a large percentage.
