To create the perfect base for make-up I use my three favourite three products which help to protect my skin, even out my skin tone, conceal blemishes and dark circles and give my skin an all–over radiance ready for foundation.
The first product I use is the bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer SPF 30, which is an amazing multitasker as it contains spf 30, preps and primes the skin for foundation, evens out the skin tone and diminishes the appearance of imperfections.
I can protect, prep and prime, and even out my skin tone all in one go and I’m ready to apply foundation.
It provides the perfect base as it leaves the skin feeling so soft and smooth that foundation literally glides on so evenly over it. My skin just looks instantly better after applying this, even before applying foundation!
I notice such a difference straight away; my pores are minimised, my complexion looks a lot more even and the hint of colour makes my skin look bright and healthy.
The next product I apply is Mac Strobe Cream. This for me is such a great addition to my make–up routine as it really perks up my skin leaving a lovely luminous finish to it which makes my foundation look 10x better!
I just love the iridescent, pearly colour of this as it really brightens up the look of my skin and gives such a gorgeous dewy, heathy, glow which improves the look of my foundation.
Lastly, I use the Estée Lauder Double Wear Brush–On Glow BB Highlighter as my concealer and highlighter. I absolutely love this product and find it to be just the perfect shade for me. I use it in the shade 1N Extra Light and it covers up under my eyes perfectly.
Being a BB highlighter it brightens, hydrates and conceals in one go. It’s a lovely lightweight texture which doesn’t settle in any fine lines or make creases under the eyes and I find that it just stays put once applied.
As well as concealing and brightening under my eyes, I like to use this to highlight my brow bone and make a ‘V’ shape at the corners of my eyes to highlight and brighten all around my eyes too.
I also like to use this to highlight down the centre of my nose, on my chin and on my temples. I love using all these products as my base, and my foundation applies so smoothly over it leaving an overall radiant, dewy and healthy looking complexion.
