It’s been a while since my last beauty post (do I literally say that every time?) and in the same style as my favourite moisturisers I wanted to do a post on my favourite makeup bases.
Before we get into the good stuff, I don’t like anything that is heavy coverage, and prefer dewy bases. I break out easily so thankfully none of these bring me any blemishes!
The newest addition to my bases is Glossier Skin Tint. This is perfect for when you don’t want to wear much on your skin, but you do want a little bit of something, just incase you end up going out. It’s quite sheer, but because I’m not a fan of heavy bases this is amazing for me. I think this is going to be a long lived favourite of mine.
The next base is marketed as a hybrid skincare-makeup product, and it’s the Dr Jart BB Cream. This as more coverage than you might expect, although for obvious reasons it doesn’t last the longest, nor would I really expect it to. It’s a great lightweight base that’s super easy to blend in.
Two of my favourite base products are foundations. I love the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation because it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin but gives you great coverage and a dewy fresh base, it has pretty good staying power too and I’m not a massive powder-er I must admit.
I also really enjoy the L’oreal Cushion foundation, and every time I use it I berate the fact that I haven’t used it more! It really leaves my skin looking its best, definitely one to have a peak at the next time you’re at the shops.
Another new pick is the Rimmel Match Perfection. I’ve heard such good things about this I just *had* to pick it up, and I’m so happy with it. I’ve been using it every time I wear makeup for the last couple of weeks and it’s a becoming a bit of a love-fest to be honest. It gives really good coverage but just looks like skin. I know, I don’t know how they do it either.
What’s your favourite base? I would love to hear your recommendations!
