Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation

Seriously, the foundation angels must be smiling down on me because every foundation I have tried in the past year have been nothing but amazing. Today I bring you Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation. It’s awesome and that is all. This (along with 10 other products) was on the top of my to get list. Pay day arrived and I got the tube at 6pm on a Friday evening down to Bond Street, during rush hour, what the hell was I thinking? Made my way swiftly to Selfridges and headed towards the Charlotte Tilbury counter and can I just add as a side note that normally beauty counters in Selfridges (not that counter itself, more so the staff) can be really uncomfortable however the ladies at CT are so nice! Either that, or I was just to in awe with the products that nothing phased me. I was colour matched to no.8 a medium olive tone – it’s a perfect skin match, which I was actually pleasantly surprised, I imagined the foundations to be more pink toned but there is a nice balance of yellow & pink tone foundations. I applied it when filming my favourites video which is up today- subscribe here so you don’t miss out. The formula is so light-weight that it didn’t even feel like I was wearing anything at all but it still manages to give me a beautiful medium coverage. I used the Wayne Goss brush in no.1 to apply which is one of my favourite foundation brushes, the angle and the small head allows me to get into the corners of the nose and it helps to buff in the foundation seamlessly. It’s very rare that I wear a foundation and my husband compliments me – and he even said my skin looked great! You’re left with ‘lit within glow’ so perfect for the winter weather! There’s SPF15 but I didn’t get a flashback when taking photos but I am yet to test it still. I wore this for about 5 hours and it pretty much stayed put. I definitely see the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation creeping up to be my most loved one! There’s a selfie just to show what the foundation looks like – it’s love.

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick

Posted & filed under Beauty Edit.

A new re-launch of Bobbi Brown foundation got me super excited. I saw Wayne Goss video and immediately thought anything that looks/feels like skin, I. must. have.

There are 24 shades and majority of them are yellow based, which is perfect for me as that’s my undertone.

Foundation stick is a new concept to me. Stick based make-up seem to be the ‘it’ thing at the moment. I basically just dot this on my forehead, cheeks, chin, around the nose and buff out with my Wayne Goss Foundation brush. It took a while to blend in, but when it did, the results…oh my!

Every artist needs a good set of tools to create a master-piece, (or something like that.) So everyone (who wears makeup) in my opinion NEEDS a good make-up brush.
