Everyday Foundation: Before & After

everyday foundation

I'm actually quite appalled at myself for subjecting you to the horror that is my face pre makeup but I had to do it as a "before and after" photo would be a bit silly without a before picture. So apologies if my dark circles and blotches have offended you!
These 6 products in the photo above are my go to's for every day makeup, I'm a massive fan of not looking like a creature from dawn of the dead and this mixture of cheap to high end makeup gets me through the day without feeling the need to feast on humans. I've done a separate review (a whole year ago!) of the Benefit Hello Flawless here and the beat the blues highlighter here so I won't go into details but just thought I'd throw my love for these as a collective out there, a love so great that I even made a little video...



Oh and don't forget to enter my 1000 follower giveaway here!

  3. I wish my skin was more like yours. Mine is so red all the time!

    Benefit foundation is my favourite but I know what you mean about assistants at the counter! I purposefully steer clear of them now because I'm always caught into buying make up I neither want nor need. They're just so... peppy!

    Lovely post!

  6. easy gel eyeliner: sleek do one, but my favourite one is more pricey (but lasts forever) and is by elizabeth arden. DO NOT GET MAC because its crap for some reason, and I use a tiny thing regular artists brush and not one that comes with the pots. lemme know if you want more advice as I think get eyeliner is the dogs balls!
