Current Foundation / Makeup Base



Before I get into the products that are shown in the picture above, I will have to mention the fact that I don't really wear all of these products on a daily basis. It definitely depends on what I am up to that day, and sometimes I will skip the foundation and replace it with a bit of concealer, sometimes I'll skip blush or bronzer altogether. With that being said, I have a set of products that I do tend to gravitate towards when it comes to the foundation/base of the makeup look.

My absolute favourite foundation is the Rimmel Match Perfection (as some of you probably already know), and I'm actually considering getting it in a shade lighter as well, just so that I can mix them if I get a bit more pale or a bit more tanned. I like to apply this either with my fingers or with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, which gives a nice and flawless finish. Lately, for concealer, I've been using my Avon Luxe one, which is an illuminating one, so it's really perfect for the under eye area. I don't usually go for powder, because I just don't feel like it's necessary with this foundation, but when I feel like I need it, I always use the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder.

For the cheeks, I've been mostly contouring using the Sleek Face Form Kit, using the bronzer in the hollows on my cheeks, and the highlighter - which is my absolute favourite product to use to brighten up your complexion. I don't go for blush too often, but when I do, I love using the Rimmel Lasting Finish Blush in Live Pink, which is a really pretty soft pink shade.

That pretty much sums up the whole of the products that I use for when I want a full makeup base/foundation. What products do you usually go for?

  1. I see you like the Stay Matte powder very much, as you have hit pan on it a long time ago, probably! I really like it too, I've used up a couple of them since I started wearing make up ;)

    1. Haha, yeah, I love that powder. I should go buy a new one, since I'm scraping out of this one. It's just one of those things that I keep putting off :P xo

  2. I'll have to try that Rimmel foundation! So I'm a total baby when it comes to beauty. Should I be exfoliating before putting it on?

    1. It's not a too drying foundation, so it's not absolutely necessary. I usually exfoliate about 2 times a week, and just apply a light moisturizer before putting on the foundation. Hope this helps! :)
