I was just getting ready the other day and thought I'd share with you my favourite base makeup. For the longest time I have always believed that my canvas should look as flawless as possible. I am not one who is adventurous with her makeup. I don't bother to apply eyeshadow. So flawless skin was a priority. Before my skin cleared up, I opted for a full coverage foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation). I still use it for major events but I've switched to a medium coverage foundation, relying on the power of my colour corrector and concealers.
1. Lab Series Power Pore Anti-Shine and Pore Treatment
This one I discovered by accident. I use this as a primer and I loved it. It works way better than any primers that I have used. I apply this to my concerned areas and my makeup applies flawlessly.
2. 3 Concept Eyes Face Glow
I love the Korean, dewy skin makeup look. So obviously I had to look for a Korean makeup product. I didn't want to jump into the whole dewy skin look so I bought this to try either as a highlight or an overall glow. This product is crazy pigmented so I used it as a highlighter instead.
3. Bahama Mama by the Balm
This product needs no introduction. I love contouring but i have yet to pluck the courage to contour my cheeks. I use this to contour my nose and let me tell you, my nose be looking awesome!
4. MAC Matchmaster Foundation (shade 3.0)
This foundation is my HG foundation. A few years ago I tried this on and loved it. Then my skin got darker and I left it. My skin was bad after that period because I tried on a certain product. I never tried it again. A few months ago, I decided to give it a shot again. I would seriously get rid of my Estee Lauder Double Wear and use this forever. It has a demi-matte finish which I love. I hate matte foundations. It made my skin glowy but not oily. I looked like I had great skin and I can only say good things about it. Love!
5. L'Oréal Lucent Magique Primer
Now, this thing doesn't work as a primer. If I do use my Estee Lauder Double Wear, I'll mix this product with my foundation. It makes the foundation thinner and turning it demi-matte. I also apply this after foundation on places I want to highlight. This just gives it a sheer glow.
6. Laneige BB Cushion (shade 23, Sand Beige)
This thing is magic! I have always wanted to try a BB Cushion because it seems a lot easier for me to use on days I don't want full foundation on my face. I didn't expect great coverage from it because I am always disappointed with BB cream's coverage. This however, has great coverage. I didn't really have to conceal much. You may want to skip this if you have oily skin because right off the first application, the finish is super dewy. I had to powder my face but my skin looked really good. It is a tad pricey though but you get a refill.
7. Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
This my friend, seals the deal. You have to get this setting spray. I was queuing up to pay at Sephora and of course temptation kicked in at the aisle! I decided to just try this and see how it works. Safe to say that I will definitely get the full sized bottle after this one finishes.
Now, I don't wear makeup everyday. I go to work without makeup because I rather sleep than wake up early to do my makeup. But really, who wears a full makeup at 5am anyway? If I have an event though, this girl piles it on! I love looking at myself in the mirror transforming. I don't necessarily looked different but I feel that makeup enhances my favourite features.
So what are you favourite base products?
