Beauty || The Base




My skin is far from perfect, it's full of freckles, red areas and as of late pots too but thanks to my very reliable base my skin looks clear and glowing. My skin type is normal.





e.l.f primer £6.95
I love this primer because it absorbs quickly, doesn't appear oily on your skin 
under foundation and feels so soft when applying.


e.l.f HD mattifying cream foundation, porcelain
I love how quick and easy I can apply this foundation without being to potchy or precise. 
I wouldn't recommend this foundation for dry skin however because I think it could appear cakey. 



e.l.f tone correcting palette including blonde, blue, green, pink.
I use this as a setting powder to cover up any other skin blemishes that's not covered by foundation. I avoid my nose, it tickles and I end up rubbing it all day, it then looks like I snort drugs.


Revolution vivid baked bronzer
I'm pretty pale anyway, so I stay away from blush and use bronzer 
on my cheek bones and forehead instead for a touch of colour.

This is my everyday base for college or quick trips out, for a longer lasting base I'd add the elf highlighting stick and collection 200 concealer.

What do you think? Do you use any of these products yourself?

  1. Oooh that corrector palette looks awesome. I get quite red skin so it would be very useful. I've never tried Elf before but I think I'll have to give them a go :)

    1. e.l.f is an american brand only available online in the UK or in their one franchise store in Cardiff, Wales. I highly recommend a trip to the store in Cardiff where the girls can really help you pick out the right colour and the right product!

  7. What an amazing post, Ffion, really brilliant. I love the transformation and I can't believe how good your skin looks with that foundation - totally natural but airbrushed. I really love that you used ELF as well and its not ridiculously expensive - I will be putting my order in for the foundation and powder asap! xx

  9. The only one I have of these is the Tone Correcting Powder but don't really use it as I wear my NARS Sheer Glow Foundation which gives full coverage. I did try the ELF foundation before but found their palest one was too dark for my skin tone. Primer I am using at the moment is Smashbox Hydrating Primer. It's really good for dry skin and makes your makeup stay on all day. Makeup with primer looks so much better. x

  10. I really like elf but haven't tried much from their base range so I definitely need to give them a try - the correcting powder looks great! x
