No7 Intelligent Colour Foundation (£15.50)
I did actually review this foundation a while ago, and for ages it was my go-to base product every morning. My skin is really bad at the moment, and I'm really suffering from some awful dryness despite my skincare routine being tip-top. This super-light formula is a pleasure to wear, and is so silky smooth that it doesn't even feel like you have anything on your skin. It's really giving my skin a break from heavier foundation, giving it a chance to breathe and recover without having to go totally make-up free. Intelligent Colour is pretty self-explanatory; it's a 'one colour fits all' formula which adapts to your natural skin tone. Best blended in with fingers, the foundation melts into your skin seamlessly and is a top choice for a quick-fix effortless look. I love it.
Bourjois Eau De Gloss
After a quick search, this product actually isn't available to buy on the Bourjois, Boots or Superdrug site anymore (oops), which is a real shame because it's a lip gloss I have a particular love for. My favourite thing about this gloss is that it's not sticky; it feels so lovely on your lips, while little flecks of glitter within the nude colour gives that small hint of shimmer I always look for. Being totally different from the other brighter coloured glosses I own, this natural shade is perfect for everyday wear, looks totally effortless and can complete any make-up look. Why did they ever discontinue it?!
MAC Prep + Prime Primer (£21)
Primer is a beauty product that is essential in your skincare and make-up routine. Not only does it even your skin tone and texture, but it helps your foundation last so much longer. It really does make a huge difference, but I have a real love-hate relationship with it. I rarely come across a primer that I really love; they either dry my skin out or are too hydrating that they don't do the job of helping my make-up stay put. With my skin being incredibly temperamental at the moment, I thought I'd dig out this sample I received a while ago and give it a whirl. Guess what? It's the perfect balance of nourishing and smoothing. I don't feel like it's overly packed with silicones, but my skin feels so smoothed out after using it; plus I have definitely noticed an increased longevity in my foundation wear since giving MAC a go!
