1. Bourjois Healthymix Serum foundation in 55 with my No7 Foundation Brush
I wanted to try this foundation, as I fancied something just above a tinted moisturizer - and this is exactly it! It's dewy, and enough coverage to even out your skin tone. I do use concealer, but I like how you can see the skin through it, which makes it good for an everyday, uni foundation. I found that your typical foundation brush was the best to apply this, as it gave more coverage than other methods and really sealed in the product. I also liked applying it with my fingers as it really softened the look of the skin.
2. ELF Complexion Perfection powder with a Real Techniques Powder Brush
The ELF Complexion Perfection powder, aside from lightening your skin a little bit, give you the softest finish you could ask from a powder. It mattes foundation down and really sets it, so the dewyness of the Healthymix Serum is gone. For someone who has incredibly oily skin like me, but wants a sheer finish, the combo is perfect. I've also started using a new powder brush, the Real Techniques Powder Brush, and am incredibly impressed. It's so big and soft, and I was amazed at how evenly it distributes product on your face - an absolute winner, and one that often gets overshadowed by the other brushes in the range!
The final result? A natural coverage, but naturally matte look. Really good for us oily girls who find that the only mattifying foundations are full coverage ones, and want something a bit more naturally looking! :)
Since the weekend I've been trialling a different base so undoubtedly will be writing about it if I find a great way to wear it - but for now, here's my first offering of My Perfect Base :)
What's your favourite way of getting the same result?
How else have you worn these two products?
