I’m finally back in the swing of things, im not 100% better but definitely feeling better than i was last week. It feels like i haven’t blogged in ages!!! But I actually only skipped 1 day lol
Today im sharing my perfect pair that i’m living for at the moment. I don’t know if its my medicine i was on, new products i’m trying, the weather or a combination of everything but my skin is so oily lately and i’ve broken out so badly in one place. I haven’t had a break out in a couple years.
So this foundation paired with the Holy Grail of powders has really saved my (life) skin.
CATRICE 24H MADE TO STAY MAKEUP
This 24h Made To Stay Foundation is a mattifying foundation that lasts hours, i would know as i start work at 6am some mornings, so my makeup is applied at 5am, i then only get home at roughly 5pm or 6pm depending, and the foundation has stayed put. Also, i don’t do any touch ups during the day as i’m too busy at work
The packaging is a glass bottle with a pump action, i tend to use 1 / 2 pumps for a light coverage and 3 pumps for a full coverage look. The formula is pretty runny but easy enough to work with. There is only 1 downside to this foundation, because its a mattifying foundation it tends to dry very quickly, so i use a damp beauty blender and work pretty quickly. So downside fixed?
This (used) to sell for R 135.00 at Dis-Chem stores – not sure if this is still in store or if its been discontinued
YARDLEY ABSOLUTE TRANSLUCENT LOOSE POWDER
Yardley Loose Powder Absolute Translucent helps set your make-up for a beautiful matte finish and controls oils for a shine-free complexion. Its silky formulation contains no irritants and is dermatologically tested.
This is the only powder i use – i have used others but nothing compares to this one. Its a translucent powder that really sets my makeup as well as combating any oily that might attack. I never have to touch up my foundation or reapply any powder during the day.
This sells for R 149.00 at Clicks, Dis-Chem and Edgars stores as well as online at Takealot.com
What is your perfect pair ?
