Hello everyone and welcome back to onlyshelley – gosh it’s been such a long time since I’ve posted! To get me back into the swing of blogging, I thought why not start with a good old beauty post – and today I wanted to share with you all my current winning face combination that’s my go-to for makeup that I need to last and give me good coverage.
The combination: Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions liquid foundation, Clinique airbrush concealer, Bareminerals spf15 matte foundation
My previous blog post was me raving about the Clinique anti-blemish solutions liquid foundation, and if you’ve followed my blog you’ll know how much I’ve always loved the Bareminerals matte foundation – so it’s hardly surprising that the two go hand in hand in making my winning face. I find that the anti-blemish solutions does a good job for coverage – so I start with this after my primer and apply a light layer over my face. It feels so light, and doesn’t clog my pores which is great. I then touch up with the Clinique airbrush concealer on any problem areas and under my eyes – this concealer is nice and brightening, long-lasting, and feels nice and light on my skin.
I then go in and do the most of my foundation application with the Bareminerals matte, gradually building up layers until I reach the coverage I’m after. It’s so easily buildable, and a little goes a long way. My skin can get quite oily, especially if I’m wearing makeup for a long period of time, and over the years I’ve found that this foundation ultimately works best for my skin type. What makes this combination so perfect for me, is getting that extra bit of coverage from the Clinique, whilst remaining breathable, combined with my usual go-to leaves me with a long lasting, comfortable, and a full-coverage look which is perfect for long days or a night out.
What’s your winning face combination?
