THE BEAUTY EDIT: CREATING THE PERFECT BASE

30 August 2015

Anyone who says that base isn't as important as any other parts of makeup is kidding themselves. The one achievement anyone would do anything for is to create the perfect base for all occasions; while the perfect summery base comes with tinted moisturisers and heavy contouring (?) and strobing, the perfect base all-year long is on full coverage with lightweight texture while a satin-to-dewy finish comes along.

STEP 1 [PREP] : LAURA MERCIER OIL-FREE FOUNDATION PRIMER

The new primer I've just got in my grip that I don't think I will ever let go. It doesn't mattify the skin and it doesn't have any tiny shiny particles in it and I've heard so many great things about this primer in which, it doesn't let me down. So far I'm loving it as it's also oil free, which is hard to come by a good primer, you know?

STEP 2 [BASE] : CHARLOTTE TILBURY LIGHT WONDER YOUTH BOOSTING PERFECT SKIN FOUNDATION SPF15

I love this foundation, it comes in such a gorgeous rose gold packaging. The finish is dewy, meant to allow light to hit on your face and yet your skin would look naturally dewy and youthful; which is a perfect foundation for any girl in the summer [or any season for me] because it's also super lightweight on the skin, and a bonus: it contains a tiny 15 SPF!

STEP 3 [BANISH THE DARK CIRCLES] : YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT

I adore this concealer when it comes to brighten up anywhere your face needs glow and brightening - cheekbones, brow bones, the bridge of the nose, and also the under-eyes. It's a classic from YSL Beauty, and one that no other brands can beat. I love that it's lightweight as well because I personally think that that's how bases should be - lightweight but enough coverage.

STEP 4 [CONCEAL THEM BLEMISHES] : MAC STUDIO FINISH CONCEALER DUO

Have I not mentioned this enough already? It's such a cult product for me as Grace [ThatGraceGirl] has raved about this so much I gave it a go about two months ago; she was right - it is a cult and holy grail product! I never understood why I looked everywhere for the perfect concealer and this was right in front of my eyes[?!]. What's best about this concealer is that it isn't cakey, but the texture is thick enough to even cover up the nastiest of blemishes.

STEP 5 [SET] : CHANEL LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW SHEER POWDER SPF15

CHANEL has built up its fame for nothing - for one the fashion industry is one of the most iconic brands and the beauty line followed suit. Create with a simple vision: to create a sheer and healthy glow for the skin while being protected by the shield of an SPF of 15. Enriched with cotton flower and white rose plant cells where the application feels like a dream; it's suitable for all skin types while it's very gentle on the skin.

STEP 6 [FIX] : MAC PREP + PRIME FIX+

The last step to do is to set your base before you continue with any other makeup you'd want to put on after. I use the MAC Fix+ which I have been adoring for years to give the face a spritz from about 10-15cm away, as it will readily fix your base as well as refreshing your skin when your skin needs a boost throughout the day.
