Products For A Long Lasting Base

Whenever I apply makeup, whether it be just to nip to the shops in or for a full day at work, I always apply it with the intention of it staying in place all day long. I never half arse my makeup because for me, it is either all or nothing, I am either full glam or au natural. It has taken lots of trail and error over the years when it comes to different application methods and the products that I am using, but I am now at a stage where I love how my base makeup comes out and I know that I don’t have to worry about it. So, I thought that in this blog post I would share with you guys some of my go to products for a long lasting and flawless makeup look.

Benefit Porefessional Primer
No matter what makeup look I am doing, I always start things off with some of the original Benefit Porefessional Primer. I have been using this now for probably 8 years and I still completely adore this product. All I do is take a very small amount on the tips of my fingers and I work that into the area around my nose and then with whatever I have left, I take it onto my chin. Once that is on and into place, I give it a moment or two to settle into the skin and really do its magic!

LancĂ´me Teint Idole Foundation
This foundation that I have tried out recently has very quickly become my new obsession. I used to see so many people talking about this online and I thought it sounded amazing, I was just worried that I was too late onto the bandwagon. In the end, I realised that I was just going to have to try it out. This is a beautiful full coverage foundation, it applies to the skin like a dream and it lasts all day flawlessly. I never have to build up the coverage because this stuff just works!

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
There are many concealers that I am loving at the moment, but it is Tarte Shape Tape that I still find myself reaching for. What I love about this item is that because it is so pigmented, I only need a really small amount in order to cover up my darkness. I just love everything about this and that is why I have burned my way through countless tubes of this Tarte Shape Tape over the years!

RCMA No Colour Powder
I feel like the powder that you use and like really is subjective to your skin type, but for me it is all about the RCMA No Colour Powder. There are other powders that I like, but in my opinion, nothing quite compares to this with regards to quality and amazing venue for money. I tend to bake around my nose where I can get oily and under my eyes. I then take a small amount on a big fluffy brush and then dust that lightly all over my face to set everything.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
I used to think that setting sprays were a myth and just another way for cosmetic companies to get even more money from you. That was until I tried out this Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and I had to eat my own words. Whenever I have finished all of my makeup, I then add a light spritz of this all over my face and it locks everything in place for the entire day. Now that I have this stuff, I couldn’t be without it!

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Finish Powder
This is the powder that I keep in my handbag with me at all times to blot and top up with powder throughout the day. Because the products that I use in a morning work so well for me and my skin, it is very rare that I do have to powder throughout the day, but it is always handy to keep with me in case I do get a little oily, especially in the warmer summer months. I love this stuff and when I do have to use it, my skin looks super smooth and perfect within an instant!
