Top 5 - All About That Base


It's finally Friday and the weekend is a stone's throw away. But today is time to talk all things related to the base makeup I rely on on the daily to help me achieve my makeup goals. I have been trying out a lot of different base products and I wanted to do a round up of some of my favourite combinations and stand alone products that have changed the game for me makeup wise.

1. Becca Backlight Priming Filter, now this product makes any foundation look incredible. It's glowy and brightening but not shimmery or glittery. It's not intense but it's a subtle glow that gives that J-Lo vibe. It goes with a lot of the products I am going to mention so I thought I would put it as number one because it's an incredible product.

2. Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + NARS Sheer Glow + Becca Backlight Priming Filter AKA The best full coverage, dewey base ever. NARS SG is a great foundation on it's own but when mixed with others, it becomes a staple in my collection. Plus, it lightens the Clinique Foundation so it's wearable without the need for anything else. 

3. NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint + The Body Shop Lightening Drops is a great everyday, natural matte finish base. It's lightweight enough so that it feels like nothing on the skin, but it protects with it's SPF, but provides a really incredible coverage for what is essentially a tinted moisturiser/BB cream. 

4. Revlon ColorStay Foundation + Becca Baclight Priming Filter I have been going to this combo a lot recently, and since the Revlon ColorStay got some extra SPF and a packaging upgrade (finally, a pump) this combination is a glowing, long lasting, full coverage base that is my go to right now. 

5. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in Moonstone, now this is responsible for my pack a punch highlight, as I use this as a base on the daily to get that sunkissed, glowing from within kind of look and I love this product. I like to go over it/set it/intensify it with the corresponding powder compact, but I also love the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow for that extra kick. 

These are my top base products, and I couldn't ask for anything more, they are what makes me feel and look confident and happy in myself. Like I can conquer the world, and that's a great feeling to have. Makeup is a great confidence booster, not just too glam myself up to the nines, but to enhance me features, create a flawless base and aids me in completing the look I want. If you haven't tried any of these products, I highly suggest you check them out. Most are luxury products with a higher price tag but they are worth it, they last for ages, and I 100% believe that if you are looking for the kinds of things I am looking for in my base, then these are the best thing I have found to accomplish that.
