I’ve been using Dior foundation for almost as long as I can remember. And although it requires more of an initial investment than some of the more budget-friendly options out there, I actually find because the coverage is so amazing it lasts me better in the long run. I usually end up replacing the bottle every 7-8 months which I think is pretty good bang for your buck. Dior Beauty actually just released a new foundation, the Dior Forever Skin Glow and I love it. It leaves a super dewy, natural complexion, coverage is amazing and most importantly for everyday use, it includes SPF.
Okay that was quite a ramble but honestly who doesn’t love faking a flawless complexion? Next up I use NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer under my eyes and anywhere else I need extra coverage – this product is pretty heavy duty so less is definitely more.
Once I feel like I’ve covered up any redness or tired eyes (while still keeping a super natural complexion of course) I apply NARS Skin Deep Eye Palette to my lids to make my eyes pop ever so subtly.
I’m pretty late to the illuminator and highlighter game, and I have no idea why I ever hesitated adding a shimmering boost to help define the jaw line. At the moment I’m using NARS Super Radiant Booster as a kind of bronze and highlighter in one to both define the fast and give that I-just-came-back-from-holiday glow.
Then I sweep NARS Illuminating powder in Albatross along my nose, chin and cheekbones, followed by Estee Lauder Goddess bronzing powder. I use all these products pretty sparingly – the illuminating powder should only add a touch of shimmer, and the bronzing powder just adds a consistent touch of colour
