The Lighter Life


I have slowly been getting used to using a slightly lighter base and just using a bit more concealer where needed, since I love a good full coverage concealer (Mac Pro Longwear and Nars Radiant Creamy being the 2 main favourites), it's nice to let at least some natural skin show through. Here's what I have been reaching for (and loving)...

I have had a few tinted moisturisers for a while now, the Nars Radiant Tinted Moisturiser  is nice for a light natural coverage, leaves the skin glowing but not shiny, definitely needs setting in place and a full coverage concealer for the under eye area but its super hydrating and smells good too. The Jouer Matte Moisture Tint is, as you guessed, a more matter alternative with slightly heavier coverage I would say medium, it still feels light on the skin and doesn't cake because of the great moisturising properties, although it is pricey I think its very worth it. I have also recently got in on the BB cream act, I first tried the Vichy Idealia BB Cream which has a radiant finish thanks to the tiny little glitter (undetectable don't worry) particles, it's a little hard to blend but the finish is totally worth it, I would say a light to medium coverage  as it is buildable, recently though Vichy brought out the Vichy Normaderm BB Cream  which is more of a matte finish, it still looks like skin but dries to a semi powder finish, the coverage on this is more like a medium and can be built up too, I can actually get a way with wearing this without concealer on good days which I love. Honourable mention goes to the Rimmel BB Matte (I forgot to picture it above but I have done a full review here) which is a great high street alternative with amazing coverage and a natural finish.

How do you keep your base looking natural?
