Current Face Base Routine

Face Base RoutineI thought I'd share my current face base with you all today as I'm pretty happy with it at the minute! That's quite unusual for me because I tend to change my primer/foundation/powder on a regular basis (so fickle) but I've stuck with these products for a good few months now.
Firstly, I apply my dream Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. I can't even tell you how pleased I am to have discovered this product. I actually got it in the Harvey Nicks/Glossybox Christmas collaboration last year and I love it so much. I've always struggled with primers, I can't stand them ones that give an almost powdery finish on your skin, you know the type?! Then there's the ones that are just too wet and thank you. Laura Mercier, however, have got the gel like formula just right and I will be repurchasing when I've run out.
Next, I apply L'Oreal True Match Foundation. I was slightly dubious about this as I'd seen so much hype about it - I'm normally disappointed by hyped products but I was pleasantly surprised. I have the shade Rose Ivory and it's a great match for my skin. It needs building up if you like a full coverage but I like that it's not too heavy.
Copious amounts of Nars Creamy Concealer in Chantilly is applied under my eyes (damn those dark circles!), down the centre of my nose and in the middle of my chin. It's so pale that I can use it to highlight areas as well as conceal. 2 jobs done for the price of 1 - brillllll.
To finish, I buff Soap & Glory One Heck of A Blot Powder into my skin to set everything and give me a flawless finish and I'm all good to go! (Well, besides highlighter, contour, blusher eyes and lippy but you know what I mean ;))

 What is your current face base routine? Do you own any of the products featured in this post?


  1. I love this post, I'm always on the look out how to do my face base differently because I feel like over a period of time it starts to look yuck on me! I've wanted to try the L'oreal True Match for ages, this just makes me want it more!

  2. My everyday face routine is always a quick and go - Just some concealer, powder and that's it - but my go-to foundation is Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation. It's super light and feels comfortable on the skin all day!
