A FLAWLESS BASE WITH JUST 4 PRODUCTS! (BLOGMAS – DAY TWENTY-NINE)

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!

1. MAC Strobe Cream

Hydrates, illuminates and clarifies skin with a mega-dose of vitamins and green tea. Iridescent particles reflect light for a revitalised, radiant glow.

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.

2. Physicians Formula Butter Believe It Foundation & Concealer

Physician’s Formula Butter Believe It Foundation & Concealer is a ultra-luxurious foundation and concealer with a creamy texture which melts into the skin, leaving a natural radiant glow.

Infused with a potent blend of Murumuru Butter, Cupuaçu Butter and Tucuma Butter, sourced from the lush, nutrient-rich Amazon, the long-wearing, weightless formula simultaneously provides buildable coverage. Free from parabens. Cruelty-free & vegan-friendly.

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.

3. Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Infinite Universal Pressed Powder

Set your makeup in place with the Conceal & Define Infinite Universal Pressed Powder with Niacinamide. With an extra finely milled formula, this pressed powder will melt into the skin and set your makeup in place without a trace whilst banishing any shine. Suitable for all skin types and tones, this product also has the infusion of blemish-busting niacinamide which will help to reduce the appearance of pores for a blurred complexion which is set for the day.

I’ve used some really rubbish powders in my time. I’ve also used some fairly average ones. I can honestly say though, this one is a gem!

Lightweight and lasts forever. What more could you ask for?

4. Makeup Revolution Superfix Misting Setting Spray

Lock your look in place with the Revolution Superfix Misting Spray. Enjoy the holding power of this weightless setting mist, perfect for use with your favourite liquid, matte or powder based base products.

This fixing spray gives you an ultra-matte, shine free look that won’t fade away. Infused with beneficial skin soothing Aloe & Vitamin E.

Sounds magical doesn’t it? It’s transformed my makeup game in general by adding so much more longevity (I mentioned how oily I am didn’t I?!) to my look and really has cheered me up untold amounts.

…and that’s it! Will you be incorporating any of my favourites into your routine?
