When it comes to our makeup, we all focus on different aspects. For some of us, it’s all about the eyes, for others, it’s all about the lips. For me, it’s all about the base. I’ve spent the past few years trying out different products that work for my oily skin and that will last all day. While I’m still on the search for products, I’ve finally found three products that I think will be part of my daily routine for a long time. So todays post is all about how I achieve a perfect base.
The first product I am loving, is the L’Oreal Infallible Priming Base. This is a gel based primer that helps to mattify the skin and helps to make your foundation last all day. I tend to only use this on my t-zone as this is where I am oily, and it definitely helps my makeup last. This primer reminds me slightly of the Make-up Atelier T-Zone Gel Primer that I used to use and love a few years back. If you want to know more about the Infallible Primer you can read my full review here.
I first tried the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation back in October, and I honestly don’t know why it took me so long to try it. Seriously, this foundation is amazing. I think I was always put off by how full-coverage this is supposed to be, as I have always been much more into low/medium coverage. But honestly, I haven’t found it to be super full coverage. Don’t get me wrong, you can build it up to full, but I always manage to get a medium coverage which is perfect for day-to-day wear. Again, I have previously reviewed this, which you can read here.
The third and final product that I use every day for a perfect base, is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer. I use this on my under-eyes, chin and any tiny blemishes I might have, and it really helps to perfect my make-up. There’s also absolutely no under-eye creasing from it, which is something that has bothered me about other concealers in the past.
