My Five Favourite Products For A Flawless Face

I wanted to do a blog post about my everyday makeup and today I have focused on my base. Flawless skin is something we all try to have and even though mine is often far from it, it's a mission I am always on! These are the products I use to try and achieve that....
Primer

I own quite a few primers and some are better for different times of year (I love using the Smashbox primer in the summertime) but my favourite all rounder is the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. I'm not a huge fan of the smell but it works wonders and you only need to use a pea sized amount for your whole face. It smooths on really easily and sinks in quickly.

Foundation

I'm so sad that I didn't discover this years ago! I had been looking for a full coverage foundation which didn't look cakey when applied and this was recommended to me many times over. Because this foundation has so many shades, I went to the Estee Lauder counter and got colour matched. Also, this is the only foundation I've ever owned that I've never had to touch-up through the day, when it says Stay-In-Place makeup, it really means it!

Concealer

This is a fairly new discovery for me and I'm addicted! I love Soap & Glory makeup products and you definitely get your money's worth with this, two different shades of concealer, one for dark circles and one for spots and to top it off, a setting powder and sponge applicator. I also love that there is a mirror as it saves valuable handbag space, what's not to love?

Powder

I don't like to use a lot of powder in the winter as it makes my skin feel dry but I still like to feel like my makeup is set in place! This Maybelline powder is great for that and it blends really well with my foundation colour too.

Bronzer & Highlighter

I use this duo every single day and I absolutely love the subtlety of the shades, the bronzer isn't too dark and the highlighter isn't too shimmery. It has quite a heavy vanilla smell which I'm not very fond of but I love the packaging as it looks like chocolate!

Thanks for reading :)

  21. Thanks so much for sharing your everyday favorites with us! I, of course, always hear such wonderful things about Laura Mercier, but I've never read or heard anything about her primer specifically, so it was great to see you mention and share your thoughts on it! I hope you're having an amazing day so far, girlie, and thanks so much for sharing!

  34. I have to admit I use only powder from the products you show here! But I'm convinced your makeup is also due to the reason you use these products much better than my makeup :)
