Top 3 Light Bases

DSC00400

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?

After hearing that my beloved Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer may  be being discontinued. FYI it’s not. It was just due to popular demand that it was out of stock! Thank goodness! But on a bit of spending spree. Sorry bank! I decided to give the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer a whirl.

Why I bought it?

It’s heavy duty concealer promising to cover up all blemishes and dark circles you may have.

About the product?

There is two shades, One light and one dark. The consistency is very hard and doesn’t look like it would blend easily.

How I use it?

I take my ring finger into the  lightest colour. I use my fingers as they warm up the product which makes it easier to blend. I primarily use this concealer for blemishes and redness. I prefer to use a liquid concealer under my eyes.

On the blemishes I just tap this concealer onto it without worrying about blending it in just yet.  To blend it out I use a Real Techniques Dome shadow brush to just buff the edges, I don’t touch the actual blemish.

If I was using this under my eyes, I just take the lightest colour on my ring finger and blend it in with my finger. If it needs additional blending I will use the Dome Shadow brush as well.

My thoughts? 

As much as I like this concealer I think my €6 Collection one does the same job but cheaper. I also think I personally prefer liquid concealers. This is by no means a bad concealer  I just prefer liquid. The coverage of this concealer is good and doesn’t leave your blemish cake-y and dry considering it is a very dry formula.

Price?

$33/€36

Here’s a look I wore recently out to dinner. As it wasn’t an overly fancy dinner and I always plan on being in a food coma afterwards. I wanted to keep things neutral as always, here on LA!

I started of with my base which is NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Sante Fe, (Is it too soon to call it love)
