Current favourite foundation base...

A perfect base is essential for making sure the rest of your make-up applies flawlessly. I have been using the combination below now for around 2 months and have found that these products work really well together. These three items seem to work perfectly on my combination skin as they have great staying power, without them looking too matte or cakey. 

This L'oreal lumi magique light infusing foundation (in shade rose porcelain) provides a nice dewy finish and definitely makes the skin look brighter than usual. I apply one to two pumps of this on a day to day basis and I personally think it gives a medium coverage to the skin. I also really like the packaging of the product, as it looks high end from the glass case and the rose gold pump and detailing. 

I do have blemishes and marks on the skin that the foundation doesn't quite cover. So I use my NARS radiant creamy concealer (in light 2 vanilla) to make sure my skin tone is completely even. I am completely in love with this concealer as it gives such high coverage and is extremely easy to blend without the creasing that occurs when I use other concealers.  

This base would not be complete without applying powder for me, due to my combination skin this foundation would be too oily for me to use alone. However, I do think people with a drier skin type would be able to get away without the powder. I have been using the CHANEL natural finish loose powder (in 25 peche clair) which is a loose powder that provides slight colour to the skin. This works so perfectly in blurring imperfections and definitely gives off that perfect finish. I would say that I can go without touching up for around 8 hours when using this powder as it is good at controlling oil, however it does not give your skin that tight/drying effect either.
