Everyday Foundation Routine.

Totally forgot to take a proper photograph of my make up, sorry for the video still! Note to self, must try harder!

For the last couple of months I simply haven't been able to start my make up routine without using the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Moisturiser and the Illamasqua Satin Primer. These two products work amazingly well together and my foundation never goes on as smoothly if I skip one of these products!

Foundation wise, the star of the moment is of course, Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum. I'm sure you're all getting sick of me mentioning it all the time but honestly, I'm so in love with it! The coverage is wonderful, it blends so quickly and easily and the colour is pretty perfect for me which is always a good thing! Concealer wise, there are a few I really love. In the video I'm going to embed at the end of this post I use all three of these, Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection, Benefit Boi-ing and Benefit Erase Paste. On the day I filmed my foundation routine video my skin wasn't looking so great, as you will see, but hopefully it gives you a pretty good idea of how well they work!

Another Bourjois product I'm head over heels in love with is the Delice de Poudre bronzing powder and I use the shade 52 which I believe is the middle shade, but don't quote me on that! I use this with an ELF Complexion Brush and I love the way it helps to really sculpt my face without looking too fake and just a bit, well, odd. No one likes looking odd! For my blush that day I opted for MAC Something Special Cream blush which is the perfect peach shade & I popped a little bit of NARS Douceur over the top, because one blusher is never enough for me! I'm pretty obsessed, but obviously my blush shade changes from day to day!

Which products are featured in your current every day foundation routine? I'd love to know what you're reaching for at the moment!

    1. I would say yes, but I think about a medium coverage is the most it would give xoxo

  7. I'm sure my friend uses the healthy mix and I always think she looks fantastic, it doesn't even look like shes wearing mak-up. I'm so tempted to get he boing concealer! I've heard good things of the erase paste too. I never wear concealer, I usually just pat on my bare minirals foundation powder but using a concealer brush. I get worried about ordering online because im so pale so never sure if it'll be too dark, but i will have a bit more of a check up on the concealer :)

    1. It's a really lovely foundation, definitely looks like skin and not cakey make up. I'm pretty pale and the Benefit concealers in the lightest shades have always been perfect for me! xoxo

  9. I always debate getting a primer, but can never decide if they'd be worth the money or which would be best! You have such lovely skin, I'm sure you don't even need all the make up! PS. I've awarded you for the Versatile Blogger award lovely :)
