Saving Face

Nothing boosts confidence like a great face day! Unfortunately, these rarely happen naturally. Thankfully I have found some great products for when nothing will go right! These products are complete fail-safes and have been well loved so excuse the photos!

Garneir BB Cream for sensitive skin 'Light' £9.99 but currently on sale for £6.66!
 The texture of my skin is awful! I've tried so many primers and foundations but none compare to this! This always looks great, not super high coverage but if it was it would probably be too dark for my skin, in winter I'll often wear this over the top of it just to lighten it up a bit. If I find myself needing more coverage on spots or redness then I'll use this as a primer. I haven't found a foundation or concealer that isn't 10 times better over this!

Sleek Face Contour Kit 'Light' £9.99

I wore this literally every day when I was working and even when left my job I hardly went out the house without this on! I'm shocked at how well this lasted, I must have had it for a few years. It gives a light contour but builds up for a sculpted, model cheek bone look! Although, one piece of advice, go easy on the blush, it's not very subtle...

Maybelline Colour Tattoo 'On and On Bronze' £4.99 and Urban Decay Naked Basics £23

On their own, neither product lasts well on my eyelids but using the cream as a base really makes it last all day (and all night, I once went to sleep after a night out with these on my eyes and the next day my friend asked me how I'd done my makeup already)! I don't think I've ever used 'Foxy' but the other colours get a lot of love.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain  'Romantic' £7.99

They've apparently re-branded these  'ColorBurst' so I really hope they haven't reformulated as their other crayon stains don't last nearly as long on the lips! This one really is a stain, so even when  the initial application fades you're left with a beautiful colour. It's perfect for going to a meal or drinks as you know you'll look great throughout the evening! I wore this so much that when I lost it walking into town, I ended up being 15 minutes late for my friend, I had to run to Superdrug first! It's my perfect red, I think she understood...

I would love to hear your fail-safe products or tips, I'm new to blogging so any thoughts on how to make it better would be muchly appreciated!
