This season's biggest and most loved beauty trend is flawless, beautiful skin and I'm absolutely thrilled about it as I love nothing more than a divine, natural looking base! The good news is that once you're armed with the right beauty tools- i.e the PERFECT foundation its easy to create the look and work it on a daily basis! Not only does a flawless base enhance natural beauty (which is my personal beauty ethos) it also goes with and enhances every outfit! Perfection.
The flawless face was also one of the most memorable trends from the recent spring/ summer 2015 shows so there's never been a better time than now to invest in WOW factor makeup to create the most perfect base to take you through an icy cold winter into a sunny spring time.
I always say the perfect canvas compliments each and every ensemble no matter the occasion or season, so its worth taking some time to master the look so you can repeat it everyday and build on it for different more vibrant or intense looks.
Luckily I've done the leg work, (or the face work to be more exact) and have discovered a foundation, concealer and nude lipstick that I can almost guarantee you will LOVE as much as I do! (Yes, they're really that special).
BASE // STEP 1- TRACELESS PERFECTING FOUNDATION (SPF 15)
This foundation is a total velvety dream and gives full, un-cakey, fresh feeling coverage- ideal for creating a flawless base with zero imperfections! I love how easy and blend-able the consistency is, I've been using the Short Duo Fibre Brush by Mac which leaves an air-brushed effect to the skin. I literally cannot rate this foundation enough, it goes on so well, lasts all day and even photographs amazingly! I've been using Sable and its RRP £62
BASE // STEP 2- CONCEALING PEN
I call this my secret weapon as I'm always armed with it! You simply twist the bottom of the pen and the concealer comes out of the foamy dome tip so you can apply straight to the spot, mark or dark under eyes- it's a multi-purpose makeup miracle that I use to complete my base and cover up any unwanted nasties. Smells so fresh too! RRP £40
BASE // STEP 3- CONTOURING CHEEK COLOUR DUO IN STROKED
This compact deserves an award! It transforms your face by adding gorgeously high cheek bones, subtle bronzed warmth and a highlighter to bring your face to life! RRP £56
PERFECT POUT // BLUSH NUDE
This Blush Nude lipstick shade has taken over Nude Vanille which used to be my all time favourite lip colour by Tom Ford. Blush Nude matches my skin tone perfectly and doesn't wash me out at all, it adds subtle warmth and gorgeousness to any 'bare faced' look and as of late I haven't left the house without wearing it- I'm that addicted! I would recommend using a very natural lip liner to lightly outline the lips before you apply for added perfection and definition of the lips. In the most natural way possible, of course.
After having my Tom Ford makeover done at Selfridges I've been raving and obsessing over my new found makeup finds. I hope you take my advice and try them out for yourselves as you really won't be disappointed they're gorgeous and are great beauty investments.
