Rocking a bare face for pretty much the entirety of the initial lockdown did wonders for my skin but also in some ways created a monster.
I became incredibly fussy, craving perfection when in reality that’s kind of impossible. Makeup will always and should always look like makeup. We have pores and texture, it’s just a fact of life!
However, I think I’m finally happy with the routine I have cultivated so thought I’d share my findings with you all!
This is my 5 product flawless base. Quick and easy, just the way we like it!
Hydrates, illuminates and clarifies skin with a mega-dose of vitamins and green tea. Iridescent particles reflect light for a revitalised, radiant glow.maccosmetics.co.uk
Guys, I’m oily and of course I have to take that into consideration when I’m pondering products but I just love to get my glow on! The MAC Strive Cream really just breathes some life back into the skin.
It also looks fab on its own for those no makeup days.

My holy grail and secret weapon all rolled into one. The perfect amount of coverage whilst avoiding any cakiness. Hands down the best foundation I have ever used and the affordable price makes it an absolute winner for me. Without a doubt the cherry on top of my routine.
