So it begins. Hopefully the first post of many more to come!
My most important beauty must have. No make up look is complete without a flawless base. I think it is essential to have a HG foundation and powder, so here is mine.
As you can probably tell, it's CHANEL. I love this foundation. I use the Pro Lumiére foundation in the lightest shade, limpide. The coverage is fantastic, covers up flaws excellently. I have used many foundations in the past and was put off liquid foundations as orange faced experiences as a teenager, but once I tried this one, I can happily say there is no looking back!
Pro Lumiére is perfect if you want a more substantial base, it makes your skin look flawless in photographs! However when I decide to hit the town I usually mix up my pro lumiére in limpide with my Chanel Vitalumiére foundation in 1 shade darker, clair. I find this works perfectly with a little bit of fake tan and gives a very natural glowing look.
I don't think I could ever wear foundation without setting it with a powder. I use Chanel, again, Poudre Universelle Libre, in shade 20 clair, translucent 1 (lightest shade). It makes my makeup look completely matte. Perfecto!
Just a little helpful advice on picking the right Chanel foundation for you:
Pro Lumiére - High coverage
Vitalumiére - For dry skin, gives a dewy effect.
Mat Lumiére - For oily skin, gives a matte effect.
Lift Lumiére - For mature skin, firming and smoothing.
