Top 3 Light Bases


I am not one to wear full coverage foundation bases everyday, I prefer something light and natural looking, My skin but better.

Here are my top 3 light bases that I reach for on a daily basis.

No.1 Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser in Natural Beige. 

This is 100% my 10/10 foundation base. A little goes a long way for this base. I need less than a pea sized amount to cover my entire face. The finish of this base is dewy and the coverage is excellent for a tinted moisturiser. I blend this in with a brush but it also looks lovely applied with a sponge or your fingers.

No.2 Diorskin Nude BB Creme in 002

I consider BB creams to be like tinted moisturiser honestly who knows the difference between them really. This base is slightly matter than Laura Mercier. This BB cream has good coverage and feels very light on the skin.

No.3 MAC Cosmetics BB Cream in Medium Plus

This base is alot thicker in consistency than the others but it still feel light on the skin. It offers good coverage and has a dewy finish.

There’s my top three light bases. What are yours?

The Repurchase Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk


You know it”s a good foundation when you repurchase it.

Why do I love it 

Well the list is endless but basically it’s seamfree finish (it look like your skin but better), shade range, it makes my skin glow something that is hard to do. It is the perfect combination of matte, dewy and radiant and if that doesn’t win you over maybe it’s staying power will.  On my skin (combination) it stays for around 8 hours.

As there is a low SPF in it, there is very little if none of the horrendous flash back face.

What Colour did you get?

Shade 5

How much does it cost?

£35.50/€43  and can be found on Selfridges here,  on House of Fraser here  and lastly Brown Thomas here

Any Dupes?

L’Oreal True Match Foundation (it’s just slightly matter not always a bad thing in my books)

Viviannadoesmakeup | Share the Love Week



This week on LA is going to be share the love week. Basically everyday this week I am going to show you my favourite blogger and vloggers. To start of the week I thought I would tell you about my favourite blogger of all time which is viviannadoesmakeup or Anna.

Anna is the main reason I started my blog. She was the first blogger that didn’t do a heavy smokey eye that realistically I could never achieve. Anna wears very natural make up but recently she’s been embracing a red lip and even eye shadow on the lids everyday.

You’ll love Anna if you like natural make up and great skincare advice.
Anna posts everyday on her blog here, every sunday on her youtube channel here

You can also find Anna on twitter, instagram and facebook.
