My Everyday Base Make-Up

For the majority of this year I've noticed myself falling back to these exact products every time I wear make-up, even though I've tried other products none of them seem to be as good as these ones, they're my go favourites for my everyday complexion.
My Everyday Base Make-Up
Benefit POREfessional Primer-Post
This smoothing balm is ideal for minimising your pores. I apply this on my t-zone area where my pores are open and producing more oil as this primer is oil free it means it won't be adding any additional oil onto your skin. Once on it blurs your pores whilst prolonging the wear of your make-up as it's controlling the oil within your pores.

Just like the POREfessional this primer is oil free too, can you see a link here? After my t-zone is primed I like to go in with this primer on the rest of my face, especially my cheeks, to diminish any redness I may have. This primer is infused with cucumber, chamomile and vitamin E which helps to cool and soothe the skin, reducing any redness.

MAC Studio Fix Foundation
When it comes to foundation what I'm looking for is full coverage and a lightweight formula which can last for the whole day; the studio fix aids my needs. This is my go to foundation not only does it has SPF in to protect your skin, but it works wonderfully for my combination skin.


Benefit Boi-ing Concealer-Post
This full coverage concealer is perfect for covering imperfections, blemishes and dark under eye circles. It's a very thick yet creamy consistency which means it isn't drying when put on the specific area which needs more coverage. Spot concealing is one of my favourite things to do with this concealer as it covers literally anything!

Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder-Post
I think everyone and their brothers pet parrot has heard about the one purpose everyone uses this powder for. Baking. This is the concept of placing the translucent powder underneath your eyes to set the concealer, this will reduce fine lines from appearing and brighten the area. Once left on for a while, you then sweep the powder away to make you look like you're worth a million pounds. Bye bye dark under eyes.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder
Although this powder only costs a merely £3.99 it's the only powder I will use to set my face; that in itself suggest how invisible this powder is. As I have combination skin my t-zone gets oily and with the use of this powder I find it reduces the appearance of shine on my skin and mattifies my face within seconds. Furthermore, it prolongs the wear of my make-up as well as adding additional coverage without making my skin look cakey.

Make-Up Revolution Cream Contour Palette
Before contouring with a powder it's an essential for me to cream contour my cheeks, jawline, nose and temples to enable the longevity of the look. This palette comes with an array of different shades, including some highlighting creams, the one I use is cool toned and excellent for those with pale skin. I use it in conjunction with my hoola bronzer and the two paired together are the perfect colour match.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer-Post
Did someone mention the most popular contouring product? This bronzer is impeccable when it comes to contouring as it has the perfect formular, colour and pigmentation. Due to this bronzer being cool toned it means that you aren't going to look muddy, even though it's very buildable. I cannot wait until I finish this mini version as I'm going to go straight out to pick up the full size box.

Avon Marbelised Blush-Post
I feel horrid for including this as you can't purchase this anymore even though it's the prettiest blush I have encountered. It's a beautiful, rose gold, shimmery, subtle blush which adds a lovely pop of colour when on the apples of you cheeks.

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter
This highlight has to be the most underrated drugstore highlight I have ever used. It's an extremely pigmented, finely milled glittered, shimmery champagne highlighter which looks faultless on the top of your cheekbones. This highlight is a mesmerizing £3 considering the finished look it gives is beyond beautiful.

I cannot recommend these products more than enough to you as they're sublime and produce a flawless finished look on my skin.What are your holy grail every day products? Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
