Current go to bases

I am having a bit of a moment currently and I have found myself completely focused on finding my perfect base products. Today I thought I would talk about three of my current favourites.
Clarins BB skin detox fluid - 00
I've seen such mixed reviews on this product but I personally love it. It's an incredibly light weight formula however it still offers a good medium coverage. For my dry sin this is perfect as it feels incredibly hydrating and I find that it doesn't sink into any dry patches no matter how long I've been wearing it. It also wears very well and I don't find it separates on my incredibly dry nose which a large majority of foundations do.  The one thing I will say about this is that it definitely is a little bit dark for me however I love it so much I just tend to put a little more bronzer than usual on my neck. I definitely think that if you have dry skin and are on the lookout for a new foundation this one would be perfect.
Urban Decay Naked skin foundation - 0.5
Could I write a post about foundations without mentioning this one. I have to say this is my all time favourite foundation. Like the Clarins one it is incredibly light and almost feels like you have nothing at all on the skin. It has such a stunning dewy finish and is just the ideal foundation for people with dry skin. Again it doesn't sink into any dry patches and lasts so beautifully. What I also love about this us that it isn't an oil based formula meaning there is no chance of it looking oily even on the hottest of days. I also find that this shade is super duper pale and pretty much matches me perfectly. It also had a pretty good colour range and also comes in both pink and yellow undertones. .5 being pink and whole numbers being yellow toned.
Clarins, Urban Decay, Bourjois.
Bourjois Healthy mix Serum - 51
This is 100% my all time favourite drugstore foundation. Although it is a little thinner than the other two it still doesn't feel heavy on the skin. Again as with the other two this doesn't sink into any of my dry skin (Can you tell that's the main thing I look for) This one also smells really nice which I mean is always a bonus. Out of three this one has the most satin finish out of the three however it still gives the skin a really stunning healthy glow. It is definitely one I would recommend for anyone with dry skin who are on a budget although I will warn you that all Bourjois foundations are quite yellow toned.
So that's it for today, I would love to know what your favourite bases are?


  1. ive never tried the bourjois healthy mix, but i've heard so many good things, maybe next time I will give it a try xx

  2. Thanks for sharing, I'm definitely a huge fan of the Urban Decay one as well! My favorite base has to be the It Cosmetics CC+ Cream, soooo good!
