My Face Stuff

Call it what you like – foundation routine, favourites, most reached for, holy grail.. these are basically my every day face products. Whilst I definitely mix up one or the other thing the core has been the same for a few months now.



Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – this is actually somewhat new, I used to have the hydrating version but have just run out. Both are great, very delicate primers.

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B10 – I want to call this my HG foundation but I am still on my first bottle and have decided not to use the word HG until I have at least repurchased it once 🙂

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Bisque – very creamy which is what I want in an undereye concealer. I find this quite similar to the Laura Mercier concealer which I also like

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light – everybody seems to love this powder and I can see why. For a pressed powder this is not too matte and it has never looked cakey on me. I should mention I have normal to dry skin.

Guerlain Terracotta Blush & Sun in 01 Sun Light – the lovely MsSparkleArkle has gotten me onto this I have been using it ever since. It’s a lovely natural looking colour with a healthy glow.

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in 00 Make Up Artist – nice and sheer for paleys like me 🙂 I also really like the smell of Guerlain products, probably not for everyone.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle – Believe it or not this is the only highlighting powder I currently own. I know, I know – crazy! But this is really pretty and I have not felt the need to venture out too much. It seems to last forever as well which somewhat justifies the price tag.

Laura Mercier Brow Definer in Fair – a very soft brow gel that holds your brows in shape but don’t expect this to fill in any gaps. If I want more defined brows I usually add some eye shadow.

MAC Fix+ – sometimes I set my foundation with this but more often I spray my brush before I put my foundation on. I find this avoids my brush soaking up too much of foundation and also helps blending it into the skin nicely for an airbrushed finish. This product was a gift from my lovely friend Penumbra Doll.
