My Go-To High Street Staples for Flawless Skin | prettylittlewriter

Recently, I have had so many compliments on my skin, or more-so, my foundation, from both colleagues and customers alike during my day job.
I have been using this combination for a long time now, and whether it's the applicators that create the flawless finish, or just the products themselves, I always feel so fresh and incredibly happy with my make up.

So I thought I'd share with you all the products I use to create my make up base, and show you the results!
The first step is a combination of the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation & Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation. I use a combination of the two shades, as the Lasting Finish shade, Porcelain, is just that little bit too light for my skin tone. The Wake Me Up shade is True Ivory, which is slightly darker than my skin tone, so again, I can't use it on it's own. Yes I could have gotten two shades of the same foundation, however I had both of these in already, and I thought I'd try combining them. It's definitely worth it!
Wake Me Up gives you that gorgeous, dewy look, perfect for Spring/Summer, and Lasting Finish gives that build-able coverage to create a gorgeous finish.
I team the foundation with the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, again, in two shades. I use the shade Fair for the under-eye area, to brighten my dark circles, and Cool Medium to cover any blemishes I may have.

I then fix my base in place with the Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder which mattifies any areas which are giving off a bit too much shine.

I also add a bit of bronzer, blusher and highlighter, however these aren't necessities, and they aren't what create that perfect, blemish free skin.

All of the products are applied with the Real Techniques Bold Metals brushes. Foundation and concealer applied with the Triangle Foundation Brush, and the Arched Powder Brush for the powder. 

I am always so incredibly impressed with how it turns out, and to get compliments from other people, shows just how great these foundations are.
So if you want something that will give you flawless skin without breaking the bank, head on over to your local boots/superdrug or if you're in America, your local drugstore, and pick up these babies!!
