The Perfect Base | Natural, Everyday Face Makeup

Hi there!

Today, I’ll be showing you all the products that are my recipe to a glowing complexion that looks very natural and beautiful!  These products are perfect for an everyday flawless face. 🙂

Step 1: Prime!


My ALL-TIME FAVORITE primer is Smashbox’s Photo Finish primer!  This stuff is absolutely amazing at smoothing out my skin and making my makeup last all day!  I don’t ever get oily when I use this primer and it also helps foundation not to cling to my dry, flaky patches!  I am using a sample size of this primer right now and I think it’s so adorable in such a miniature bottle. :3

Step 2: Conceal 🙂

I am obsessed with Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Concealer!  It blends so smoothly and gives me full, but natural-looking coverage!  Also, I really love the bendy applicator!  It is great for precisely applying the product and it just makes me so happy!  It’s the little things, people.

Step 3: Foundation


For a natural-looking, lightweight product that still gives pretty good coverage, I have been loving Smashbox’s Camera Ready BB Cream.  This stuff is amazing!  It has SPF and fixes any discoloration while still making me feel like my skin can breath.  This is my favorite BB Cream that I’ve ever used since it doesn’t dry out my skin!

Step 4:  Brighten

To get my #HighlightOnFleek, I’ve been obsessed with Benefit’s Girl Meets Pearl liquid highlight.  This smells SO. GOOD.  I apply this to my cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and also a little on my chin and bridge of my nose.  This makes me have such a natural glow and is super easy to blend onto the skin!  I’ve been using this product to really embrace the “strobing” trend recently. It’s also great to apply before -or even mixed with- foundation to give your skin that “glowing from within” look.

Step 5: Set

I love Revlon’s Translucent Finisher to lock my makeup in place all day!  It has a sort of shimmer to it, which terrified me at first, but I actually really, really love it!  It doesn’t look shimmery on the skin and it won’t make your makeup look cake-y!

Step 6: Add Color and Dimension

Milani’s Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar is a beautiful powder that can be used as a bronzer, blush, or highlight!  I love to use this as a blush that gives a nice, bronze-y, pinkish glow to my face.  It looks SO natural, but really bring some color and life back into my skin!  I love how hassle-free this product is since I can skip highlighting or bronzing if I want and just go straight for this since it can do everything!  It’s great if you need a multi-use product!

      Thank you so much! I live in the U.S. so I can find it at my local drugstore, but I checked on their website and it says they ship to the UK! Hopefully that helps:) They say it takes 5 business days:)

      I love the POREfessional, it’s amazing! If you like that one, you’ll definitely love this one, too! It has a really similar texture! It reminds me of the POREfessional a lot which I love!:)
