Like most of us I tend to gravitate towards the same makeup on a daily basis and haven't really ventured out of my comfort zone for a while, this is in conjunction with spending less money on things I don't need. The only new product to grace my presence is the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter* (£30). In recent months, however, I have been embracing many full coverage foundations and using a lot more base products. My skin has been problematic to say the least, and sometimes I literally overdo it unintentionally. Lately, I have been feeling less and less motivated to do a full face of makeup and have just been using these three products and leaving it at that. I have been surprised by how much I love the end result and happy that I have managed to incorporate some great but forgotten items back into my routine. 

Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter in Tan* (£30) This is an interesting product that I still don't fully understood. When I first started using it I used it as a highlighter but felt like it didn't do that at all, in fact it felt more like a very lightweight sheer natural foundation. It is marketed as a complexion booster that has the versatility of a primer and the glow of a highlighter. I literally use it as a foundation, if you want to use it as a highlighter maybe choose a lighter shade, Tan is a spot on match for my summer skin tone. I love this, it feels like nothing on the skin and still provides enough of a blurring effect to improve the appearance of your skin. 

MAC Mineralise Skin Finish in Medium Tan (£30) My MSF is actually in the shade Medium Tan but I think you can match them to your foundation shades now which for me would be NC40 in the summer and NC35 in the winter. Like the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter this is quite light and sheer in coverage but on top of the Flawless Filter it adds just that little bit extra as well as setting the face a little which my oily skin needs. This is a firm favourite of mine. 

B Beauty Bronzer in Medium* (£8) A product that I had hardly used until a few weeks ago, I am a die hard contour lover but again recently I just haven't wanted to spend the time on my face. Contouring and eyes are my favourite sections of my makeup routine so if I skip them i want it to be super fast and effortless. This bronzer is a great tan shade which is warm but not orange, a true warm bronze. I apply this lightly but liberally on my cheeks, including the apples, around my jawline and temples and dusted across the centre of my nose as well as on my neck. I really like how this looks on my skin. It's pretty and natural but still gives me the dimension and colour that is lacking. 

Overall, this look not only looks pretty good for the very little time it takes but it lasts really well. I have been wearing this makeup today for over eight hours now and although there is a slight sheen peeking through from my natural oils it still looks very pretty, even close-up. I can't remember the last time I wore this little makeup and I am happy to have find a go-to fail safe for when the weather, hopefully, gets hotter and I want a very light base. Don't forget to leave a comment and share your favourite base products and bronzers, I am really intrigued by the Anastasia Beverly Hills bronzers, I have heard they are really good and I recently purchased the Elcie Cosmetic Micro Silque foundation which I am really excited to try. Check back on Saturday for my next post. Take care, 

What are some of your favourite base products?
