I have incredibly difficult skin, its very dry and large pores around my nose, so finding the best foundation has been a laborious task. Since my amazing win I have scoured the make-up counters and aisles to find the best face make-up.
Base: LE BLANC DE CHANEL SHEER ILLUMINATING BASE
Foundation: VITALUMIÈRE SATIN SMOOTHING FLUID MAKEUP SPF 15
Powder: POUDRE UNIVERSELLE COMPACTE NATURAL FINISH PRESSED POWDER
Before I used these products, I was always against using designer make-up, thinking I was paying more for the name, rather than any special, magical, formula that these pricetags seem to make you believe.
Nearly at the point of thinking I will never find the ‘perfect’ foundation, I decided to walk up to the Chanel counter in boots and told the counter girl my woes. She suggested I use the illuminating base as it will close up my pours, balance out any redness in areas and keep my foundation and other facial make-up on for longer. The satin smoothing foundation as it does what it says on the tin and leaves your skin with a soft and satin feel. Lastly the pressed powder for a flawless finish.
2 months of using this products (the longest I have ever used a foundation brand) I am over the moon. I have put this make-up on friends and they have gone out to buy it. It doesn’t come cheap though, this lot will set you back close to a £100, but it is worth every single penny
How I apply – firstly I apply the base with the spatula provided and place some on my forehead, both cheeks, nose and chin. With my fingers I then rub into the skin and allow to dry. Then with the foundation, I also use my fingers to blend into my skin and rub down my neck (nothing worst than a foundation line around your chin). If you have quite dry skin like me, avoid putting the powder on your forehead as no matter what I do, powder makes it dry in this area.
I have favouritism towards boots now 😉 so you can buy at boots.com
