The Uncomplicated Base Routine


 I am the type of person, if I find something that works for me I will stick it. For the last couple of weeks, I have been doing the same base routine nearly everyday. I start of with the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, I won't bore you because I have already put up a full review up but this is an amazing foundation. For everyday, I have just been using a small amount just to even out my skin and give me some coverage. For days where I need more coverage, I find it easy to build it up using this foundation. I love the finish, it's super natural and dewy without it being over the top.

I am obsessed with this concealer, I came across it after watching way too many youtube makeup tutorials. The La Girl Pro Concealer is the shit, it has been working so well for me. I bought mine online but I have seen it in BeautyBase at Westfield but they didn't have the large colour selection that is available. The colour is absolutely perfect for my skin tone, I use it both for under the eyes and on blemishes. I haven't found it to crease on me and it last pretty well throughout the day. It has really high coverage and a little goes a long way, the only downside is that I have found it does look a little cakey if use a little too much of it. The consistency is slightly on the thick side but that it to be expected from a high coverage concealer but it blends into the skin really nicely.  It comes in a handy tube packaging,with a brush tip. I squeeze a little into the back of my hand and just use my fingers or a concealer brush.

To set it all, I have been using this MakeUp Forever HD Setting Powder (how cute is the tiny packaging). It's completely transparent, and very finely milled so it's not heavy or doesn't look cakey at all. I use it to set my concealer and sweep a little overly t-zone.

This little routine as been working really well for me, it's quick and easy and when I don't really have time in the morning I literally do it without thinking. Let me know if you have used any of these products and what your current go to base routine is.

  1. I have that concealer and it is so good! I honestly don't know how I did my makeup before I had that little gem. It works a treat. I buy mine from Beautyjoint where you can buy American brands for less in England and shipping isn't much! I may have to buy that foundation; I've heard nothing but good words about it.

  9. I prefer the previous name but that might just be because I'm more familiar with it xD I'm still trying to figure out my shades but I will have to pop into the store to get color matched x.x
