As I have mentioned previously, my make-up ‘bag’ during my teenage years was, in fact, a make-up drawer. Since then I have done my uttermost to downsize, but as a terrible hoarder and beauty shop-a-holic, my make-up now call a small drawer unit, complete with Cath Kidston esqe ceramic rose handles, home. (I do suffer from a slight Cath addiction too…)
So first up is my Foundation drawer!
Since working for Max Factor back in 2007, I have been a huge fan of their Miracle Touch Foundation. This solid to liquid foundation offers a medium coverage, with a radiant finish, perfect for my admin/office days!
My latest Max Factor purchase is their CC Cream. CC (Colour Correcting) creams are the big beauty news for 2013, with most brands launching theirs this Spring. Formulated to contain skincare to hydrate and enough pigment for a natural flawless coverage, this my best friend on my days off!
I am also a big fan of No7 foundations Stay Perfect and Beautifully Matte, which both offer medium to full build-able coverage and perfect for an oily T-zone like mine. The great thing about No7 is their Foundation Match made Service which I use two to three times a year to ensure I’m wearing the right shade!
You can read more about this service by visiting my previous blog post on this topic.
For a special occasion or a long work day-night, I always turn to Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation. Another medium-full coverage (can you tell I like a good coverage!?!) this fantastic product is sweat, humidity and transfer proof- and stays in place for over 15 hours. Trust me, this is one product where you can believe the hype!
When I’m suffering for any blemishes or darkness under my eyes, I like to use Smashbox High Definition Concealer or MAC Pro Longwear Concealer either under or over my foundation. Both offer a high level of coverage with a natural long-lasting finish.
