on the go base essentials

I thought I’d share with you all today my go to base products that I keep reaching for at the moment. My mornings are limited and thanks to many early call times as of late, I’m lucky if I even get as far as applying moisturiser, but when I do have five minutes spare, these products have been my current go tos.

If I do have time for a more put together look that will last me throughout the day, then I’m still loving It cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation, yes the shade range is pretty pants, but medium is perfect for where my skin is at right now and I just love the coverage and the glow this gives my skin, it’s the one foundation I go back to each time I try a new one. It lasts, looks fresh and covers any redness or uneven skin tone brilliantly without ever feeling heavy.

On many occasions I skip foundation completely, and in this case find myself opting for Wander Beauty’s Dualist Matte & Illuminating Concealer. I love that one end is more matte and dense in pigment, although its still feels light on the skin, nothing about this brand feels heavy or cakey, its just the right amount of coverage for me. I also love that the matte side is slightly deeper in shade so it works perfectly for covering redness around my nose and any breakouts, while the illuminating end is very cleverly slightly lighter in shade which is perfect for waking up my under eye area some what.

If my under eye area is seriously shadowy then Cover Fx Power Play Concealer has been my go to. This has a liquid/cream finish that builds nicely and really brightens. Its perfect when I’ve had little to no sleep. The shade range is fantastic, with over 30 diverse shades. It doesn’t cake, and looks great even if I want to reapply (which I don’t usually need to).

You guys know I love a cream multiple stick, they can do no wrong in my eyes, and when you’re short on time, they are you’re best beauty friend. The NudeStix Nudies All Over Face Colour Stick ‘In The Nude’ is the most beautiful neutral barely there shade, adding the softest flush to cheeks but without making it obvious you’re wearing makeup. When it’s an early morning start, or I’m just rushed for time, this is my go to blush, eyeshadow and lipstick in one, all I really need after that is mascara and I’m good to go. What’s different about this formula is that its a little more matte in finish, so it lasts a little longer. There you have it, my speedy base routine I keep reaching for, let me know your go to in a hurry base products below.
