My skincare routine has been a little all over the place recently. With life in general getting in the way remembering to do my routine as soon as I get it went out the window. It’s more like bed time around 11pm, I need to go wash my face! So when I got these samples 1-2 months ago I decided that maybe a serum could help perk my skin up & make me want to try harder. Both were free samples which helped because these are on the expensive side of skincare.
When I started trying multiple foundations to find the one I never noticed how tricky it really is. I can give you the steps I go through on How To Find Your Perfect Foundation but I still haven’t quite found mine yet. The latest one I keep going back to trying is Estee Lauder Double Wear Light which I just seem drawn to using. It’s got all the right ideas but is it for me? If not, is it for you?

This is perfect for those warm Spring days & eventually hot Summer days as well as it lasting as long as you can.
I was on a search a few weeks ago for a new eyeshadow base when I came across this at a counter in Boots suggested by the staff instead of the actual eye base that Estee Lauder do. I was happy with the shade match so I decided to go for it. The odd thing is I haven’t used concealer for the most part of 2014, it’s not bragging more like sheer laziness & wanting a more natural base. My foundations were giving enough coverage & it just seemed like an extra step I didn’t want to do. However with my change in make-up needs this is quickly filling that to give me a more perfected base.
It feels like a never-ending quest to get the right base in general but the pressure is on even more when it comes to wedding. I’ve tried multiple ones recently & more than finding what I do need I can see what I don’t like about certain foundations.
