BASE: It's interesting that the concealers, foundation and powder I'm favouring right now are all from budget brands - it just goes to show the massive improvements we've seen at this end of the market in the past couple of years. There was a time when I didn't think you could buy a good foundation for under €25, but those days are thankfully over.
I've been seriously impressed by the revamped version of this Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation - it gives a radiant healthy finish and outperforms many at twice or three times the price. It's just €9.99. Collection's Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer is oil-free, longlasting and brilliant for blemishes whereas the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer has some light reflecting action for under the eyes. They're both about €7. Maybelline's Fit Me powder sets everything nicely and is a lovely powder that can be yours for the princely sum of €8.99.
I've also been loving the new Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara - despite not being a fan of brown mascara, I've been using the one the brand sent me on a daily basis. It's €32.50 and come pay day I'll be investing in black - this baby gives length, curl and definition with no clumps.
CHEEKS: Cheeks are also getting the Bourjois Healthy Mix treatment with their new apricot blush, designed to be universally flattering and provide a natural glow for all complexions. It’s €9.99 and was released this month.
