My Everyday Base Products.

Hey guys!
 I bought some face products a while back but didn't want to review them until I'd properly used them. Now that I've got a proper opinion on them I can give you guys my honest thoughts. Lets get started! Also sorry for the photo as its really light, the sun was Hella strong that day. I feel like I don't write a long enough intro any more but I don't want to blab on too much.

First I thought I'd start with my foundation which is the Bourjois Healthy mix which smells AMAZING like it actually smells of melons and fresh fruit. This is a really lightweight foundation which is great but for me I don't find the coverage all that smashing however that's not always a bad thing as it gives my skin chance to breathe. Its a liquid foundation and mine is in the shade Light Vanilla, I suck when it comes to picking a shade that actually looks right on me but this does thankfully match. I apply this with a damp Real Techniques brush. This cost me £10.99.

I have two of the Rimmel London Wake me up concealers because when I was 13 I bought one along with the Wake me up foundation and when looking back at the products they're orange as hell. How did I manage? Anyway i got another one from Morrison's the other week and its much lighter probably still not light enough but it'll do, It's the shade Ivory. I use it under the eyes and as a highlight on the bridge of my nose, forehead, chin and cupids bow. The only thing I don't love about it is that there's little bits of shimmer in it and im like what? why? Then I think why the hell not sparkle everyday. It has brilliant coverage and is amazing to blend, mine was £5.49.

Bourjois healthy balance powder has the same beautiful smell as the foundation which is awesome, its not very pigmented which I guess is good. However I find it takes a lot of it set my foundation which isn't the best as it builds up on my skin and is visible. I think I need a lighter less dense powder without any colour, I just need something more!! One day maybe I'll find the perfect setting powder. This one is in the shade Vanilla and it was £8.99.

I don't know if you'd count it as a base product but I hadn't written a review on this beauty yet and wanted to share with you. Holy moly I love this stuff, it's so natural blendable. After applying my light coloured foundation and powder Benefit's Hoola Bronzer adds that pop of colour back into your face as well as giving you sharp, effective contours. I'm a cont-whore. What can I say? Seriously though I it's high end and is rather expensive, £23.50 to be precise, but its worth every penny. 

So guys those are my everyday bass products, let me know your favourite and if you have any alternatives to the ones I've listed above. Bye!
