Todays post is all about cosmetics that I’m using everyday. There is a lot of more but I guess it would be boring and pointless to describe eyeshadows, every single lipstick or lipgloss I’ve got so I decided to focus and describe basics.
foundation ( either Vichy or La Roche-Posay)
Aera Teint Pure foundations can allow the skin to breathe as if it was bare. Formulated in a non-transfer, oil-free base, the matt fluid is able to rebalanced skin creating an even-looking, fresh complexion with impeccable hold. The texture respects the skin’s respiratory exchanges and allows for perfectly even make-up application.
Vichy is the number one pharmacy skincare brand in European continental pharmacies.
Corrects the appearance of all imperfections and evens out the complexion thanks to its high coverage. Enriched with a new patented texturising agent, the ultra-workable formula can be customised and easily glides on to intolerant skin for a natural make up result without marks and a long-lasting comfort. High tolerance.
Preservative-free. Tested on sensitive skin. Non comedogenic. UV protection SPF 25.
concealer ( either Inglot or Gosh)
This is a great concealer, which to my knowledge comes in three different shades. I tried 02 Medium and it was perfect for my skin colour. I found it really easy to apply, as it comes with its own applicator brush, you simply click the end and the concealer is pushed up through the bristle’s ready for you to apply. It’s then your choice as to how you blend it in, I used a small makeup sponge as I found that worked far better than my finger and gave the best results. I have searched for this product on the market and as far as I know it is only available from Superdrug and costs £6.99, although I could not find it on their website to buy. I would definitely pay £6.99 for the quality of this concealer as I love how it goes on like a foundation, my only concern would be that I have used other concealers with similar applicators in the past and have found that they don’t last very long. When I first applied it I thought it was quite thick but once you blend it in, it is really light and comfortable on the skin. Overall I think this is a great product and would definitely buy it in future.
