I’ve been on the hunt for a new foundation for a while now because, as much as I love Mac – and I do love them – their make up is stage make up and because of that its so thick and heavy on my skin. Don’t get me wrong I’ve been wearing Mac for years but only recently noticed how the colour on my skin has a slight orange tinge to it – not a good look for anyone.
Since I was looking for the perfect match, I decided to not try drugstore brands as they’re not easy to test out on skin and sometimes a colour matches your hand perfectly but not your face. No.7 have been all the rage for a while having introduced the colour match service at their counters so I opted for this and the colour I was given is perfect. I decided to try the Instant Radiance foundation because I think that everyone needs some radiance on their face. We can’t all be Kim Kardashian and have countless make up artists perfect our flaws.
I use one pump of this on the back of my hand, dot around my cheeks and chin and buff it into my skin using my real techniques brush. We all have days where we need extra coverage so then I’ll add a bit extra and either blend it with my fingers or a beauty blender. The coverage and match of this is so good that I don’t even need concealer anymore. And – the best part – it’s long lasting. This has lasted me through two days of non stop dancing and when I’ve looked in the mirror the foundation is perfectly in place as though it’d been freshly applied.
