Makeup Mondays: All about that base


Let's talk about that base this week! I'm just gonna go through what I've been loving as base to start off my make up.

Prep the face

I will use the Bio Derma just on a cotton pad and just wipe over the face, just to make sure my face is clean. Sometimes I put on my makeup during the day and by then sometimes it's just a bit oily which is why I just the Bio Derma. I then use the Clinique moisture surge, its a gel formula which I love cos I tend to get shiny due to the weather and I feel with this gel it moisturises my face without giving it an shiny finish like creams do. Then I prime my skin, with the Smashbox photo finish colour correcting primer. It is a travel size one but I'm trying to finish it before starting another primer. But I think it does a pretty good job as primer.


Depending on how my skin is looking or how I'm feeling I'll either pick on of the following foundations:
Nars Sheer Matte: I use this one if I want a fuller coverage. I'll tend to use this if I'm going somewhere nice and I have time to work in my makeup. This will last pretty much all day on me, because the weather is super humid here I will have to blot sometime once if I'm out to keep it matte.
Tarte BB cream: This one also gives me a pretty high coverage, I'd use this when I want some sort of makeup but I can't be bothered with concealers. I just think it's such a great BB cream which almost acts as a foundation and primer as one, if I use this sometimes I won't bother with the primer. This is something I'll definitely be using once uni goes back as I'm quite lazy when it comes to make-up and uni especially when I have 8am starts.
Milani The Multitasker Face Powder: I like using this if I'm having a good skin day, this one just gives a light coverage, I'm sure you can build it up but I will just use the powder brush and just do a light cover with this. It's very quick and easy.

Lots of Love,
