This is the second part of my 'Top 5's of 2012' This is my favourite make up products for my face. I have way too much make up and this is just the five products that I like to use the most for a clearer complexion.
1. Benefit- POREfessional Primer: Debenhams - £23.00
Okay, I am aware this is very very expensive, but in my opinion it is totally worth it. I have a few primers from a few different brands - but this is by far the best- it is unbelievably soft and visibly minimises pores and imperfections. It is one of those products that once you start using you wonder how you ever lived with out.
2. Bare Minerals - Orignial SPF foundation : Debenhams - £24.00
I do usually by this in the duty free as for a powder it is expensive. This is supposed to be a foundation although I tend to use it more as a setting powder. It is really soft and creamy for a powder and doesn't leave my skin feeling dry or cakey. I have a few bare minerals brushes which I use with these products and they're really soft and work well with the product.
3. Bourjois - Healthy Mix Concealer : Boots - £7.49
I have had really bad skin for the past few months, and needed a decent concealer to cover up the problem areas. I saw this drugstore brand mentioned on a few of my favourite beauty blogs and gave it a try. I think it is really good value for money, as it contains enough yellow pigments to cover up spots and enough red for those darker circles.
4. Topshop Makeup - Cream Blush (Flush) : Topshop - £6.00
BARGAIN ALERT! I think this blusher is so reasonable for such an amazing product. I like to alternate my blushers through the year, but this one is a colour that fits any season. The creamy texture does not dry the skin and is easy to apply and build on. I can not recommend the Topshop make up range enough from lipsticks to blushers I think that they are a great budget brand.
5. Real Techniques- Foundation Brush: Boots - £9.99
The real techniques brushes have been mentioned a lot in the beauty blogging world so I had to try them. I think this foundation brush is great for applying a heavier liquid foundation and is very reasonable.
