Affordable and achieving a flawless coverage, my favourite foundation at the moment has to be this little sparkle of heaven. I have this in ‘light’, and it is literally perfect!

4.IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder, £24 (6.8g), www.cultbeauty.co.uk

I suffer from enlarged pores and as such, I am permanently searching for some magical formula to whisk them into non-existence. Then recently, I tried IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores. In my opinion, it’s about as close to magic as you can get. Featuring optical blurring technology, silk to conceal pores and hydrolyzed collagen to smooth out those pesky wrinkles, this clearly is a hero product. IT Cosmetics really seem to know their stuff.

One thing to note (and it’s a biggie): the product has a bad result when I apply a primer first. It does not mix well with primer, foundation, and setting spray. Sadly, the mirror lighting on the day I realised was feeling cheeky and lied to me. “Go out, you look great.” Alas, that was about as far from the truth as you can get. Magnified visuals of every single pore is NOT a good look! I am unsure whether it was my specific beauty products that did not want to work together, but hey – forewarned and all that. Basically, without a primer, this Airbrush Powder is incredible!

Achieving a luminous finish you will love, the CC cream’s coverage will banish evidence of dry patches and imperfections with ease.

4 Of The Best Vegan Concealers Around

Hey Lovelies!

One product I consistently review is the concealer. A key product in anyone’s makeup arsenal; therefore, having a good one is of paramount importance. Now, with cruelty-free and vegan products in high demand, the selection is growing. This means no more do we need to settle for lesser quality or pay higher prices. I’ve tested many and the following are 5 of the best concealers around:

For EVERYTHING Concealer

1.Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Scultpting Concealer, £24, www.lookfantastic.com

Credit: Look Fantastic

Too Faced Super Coverage Concealer is my #1 product. This little gem ticks all the boxes: cruelty-free, vegan, free from parabens. Better yet, it is the lazy girl’s go-to product. The multi-tasker makes light work of its mission to conceal, contour, correct and highlight. Whatever your skin need, this liquid concealer delivers flawless results – AND IS NOT REMOTELY CAKEY!! Available in 16 shades, there is bound to be a shade to suit your skin tone. Too Faced, I love you!

For Discoloration and Longwear

2.Barry M All Night Long Concealer, £4.49, www.superdrug.com

Should your concern be predominantly discoloration and the need for long-lasting coverage, this is the perfect vegan concealer. Expect an even skin tone, soft-focus effect and a burst of luminosity. This concealer is so easy to blend, providing seamless results that stay put. For an added boost it combines moisturising and skin repairing vitamin E.

I would say a little of this concealer goes a long way. I found it best to just lightly apply to problematic areas rather than liberally splash on. The concealer certainly is long-lasting – I’m not sure about all night long, but it definitely stayed put until 3am!

This incredible vegan and cruelty-free liquid concealer is a game-changer for those with discoloration concerns.

For Dry Skin and Travel-Friendly

3.bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick (SPF25), £29, www.bareminerals.co.uk

Check out the first vegan water-based foundation stick. This product is composed of 30% enhanced mineral water, thus offering exceptional skin-loving support. For those with dry / dehydrated skin, this non-cakey stick will feel like a dream. Whether you wish to use this as a concealer, foundation or creamy contour, the vegan stick blends in seamlessly, providing truly flawless yet natural-looking results. Furthermore, this travel-friendly stick fits perfectly in your clutch, has an SPF25 and is available in an incredible 20 shades.

For Uneven Skin / Longwear

4.Smashbox Studio Skin Flawless, £20, www.lookfantastic.com

Should you have blemishes and uneven skin, Smashbox’s Studio Skin Flawless is awesomeness in a bottle. The lightweight vegan formula effortlessly conceals, evens the appearance of skin tone, contours and highlights. Dark circles and hyperpigmentation vanish before your very eyes – and unlike Cinderella’s midnight dilemma – this product will keep you looking radiant until at least 3 am (this is the time I collapsed at home).  However, Smashbox state the product stays put for 24 hours and given the seamless results many hours later, I am inclined to agree! Better yet, it is oil free and available in an amazing 30 shades!

5 Tips For Ensuring Your Makeup Stays Put In This Heatwave

Hey Lovelies!

Hot enough for you? We have embarked upon a heatwave that puts the UK well and truly in a siesta-worthy situation (about time, I say). But how do we ensure our makeup remains intact, so we stay looking incredible this summer? No, people we are not trying out at Alice Cooper impersonation auditions!  Check out these 5 top tips to keep our hard-earned flawless makeup looking awesome.

1.Preparation is Key

MAC prep+ Prime skin

Okay, after applying a hydrating moisturiser and SPF, it is vital to prep your skin with a primer that is perfect for both your skin type and the weather conditions. Look for a product that is long-lasting, sweat and waterproof. For info on this you can read my Best Primers For Every Skin Type here. I love Mac’s Prep+Prime. £23 (Look Fantastic).

Water-Based Foundation

Oil-based foundations and extreme sweating do not mix. Therefore, it is better to opt for a light and water-based foundation, whilst we are in heat that could win in a Pepsi challenge with the temperature of Egypt right now. A great one is Lancôme’s Teint Miracle Foundation SPF 15, £33.50, John Lewis. The formula feels lightweight and yet luxurious, is long wear with a matte finish and provides a super-boost of hydration your skin will appreciate. Awesome!

If you are planning on going for a dip, Urban Decay’s new Waterproof Foundation is a dream £22, Urban Decay. Lightweight, long-lasting and available in 50 shades. Urban Decay – you rock!

3.Don’t Overdo Products

Giphy

Layering is not a great idea during the el scorchio weeks. Keep your makeup routine light and simple. Too much and it won’t end well. Believe me! A little dab of mineral-based powder once you have applied your foundation will go a long way.

4.Mascaras and Eyeliners

Diorshow waterproof mascara

Steer clear from eyeliners if at all possible. When it comes to mascaras opt for a good waterproof one like Diorshow Waterproof Mascara £28, Dior. This mascara speaks volumes (pardon the pun). No clumping, no smudging just a luscious look that stays put even when droplets of sweat are forming on your forehead – 39 degrees – bring it on!

5.Setting Sprays

Choose a good setting spray that will guarantee your makeup is in the same place as when you applied it (rather than an inch lower on your face). I love Urban Decay’s All Nighter, £24, Look Fantastic.

Have a great day tomorrow and keep cool. Xx
