Flawless Base Products

Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation Primer, Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation, Bobbi Brown Corrector, Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit & Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder.

Without a shadow of a doubt my favorite thing in make up is base. I eyes and lips too but to me base makes or breaks your make up. These are a few products I've accumulated over the past months which I find really do work for me. I have oily/combo skin and I find these products keep my skin looking flawless and fresh all day long.

Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation Primer: I will be doing a full review of this product in due course however for now I'll say this really has improved the longevity of my make up. I love how it allows my foundation to go on so much smoother too.

Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation: I did a full review of this before Christmas and what can I say? I LOVE IT. It makes the skin look like silk and covers all my nasty bits without need for concealer. I also find this works great even without primer.

Bobbi Brown Corrector: This and the concealer are my bad ass dark circle fighting combo. It really does make them vanish. I love how smoothly it applies too.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit: I did a full review of this a couple of months back and I really do enjoy using it. I use shade Porcelain which is a bit light for me! However I like that it's that bit lighter as it really lifts my under eyes. I use the pressed powder to set it too, to eliminate creasing.

Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder: I LOVE this product. The powder is so soft to touch, even softer than MUFE HD and if you've felt that you'll know it is as soft as hell! It eradicates any shine and keeps my make up set all day.

I love the results these products are giving me and can't see myself straying away for a while. What are your must haves for a flawless base?

Lots of love, Caterina xo
