God forbid, someone broke into my flat and stole ALL my makeup – because let’s face it, losing my makeup bag would be sad, but I have backups of almost everything in it. Anyway, back to the horror story: I am looted of all eyeshadow palettes, drawers of lipsticks, mascaras, blushers and eye liners… What do I go out and buy?
This is where makeup turns into magic. The following products work for me to create the illusion of perfect flawless skin that is completely naked.
Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation
When I applied Chantecaille Future Skin foundation for the first time, I was sat at the dining table at home, natural light flooding in. My mom (hi mom!) gasped when she saw the result this foundation gave: “That’s the best foundation you have ever worn!”. Later, I caught her rifling through my makeup bag to test it herself. This foundation is a gel formula, it isn’t matte, and it isn’t glowy, it just looks like an amazing version of your own skin. My shade is nude and it has very flattering apricot undertone. The best method of application is with hands or with a damp beauty blender. My only gripe with this product is the packaging in a glass pot. Sort it out Chantecaille! The foundation wears beautifully all day and although it makes my skin look completely perfect, it can fool people into thinking I am naked-faced. Mwhahaha.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
When I started this blog I decided against harping on about cult products we all know are amazing (like the beauty blender). Forgive me if you are new to beauty, but if you don’t know about this concealer then you must be living under a rock. I use the shade Vanilla under my eyes to brighten and create dimension. It is wonderful. End of.
Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer
This stuff COVERS TATTOOS. The tiny pot of thick tacky multi-tasking concealer/foundation can be blended so easily and does not look dry or cakey. I get quite slap dash with it and still look flawless. Literally blob onto any areas of redness or blemishes and sheer out with a damp beauty blender or fingers. I am shade number 7. This concealer is the best investment as it can be used as a foundation, and will never run out as so little product is needed! Nothing covers like it and I’ve never used a concealer that is so easy to use.
the final result after using these 3 products with a beauty blender, no setting powder, natural light, no flash
