All About The Base - Some Of My Holy Grail Products

I'm pretty good at sticking with what I know when it comes to makeup. I have my firm favourites and when it comes to my base products especially, I very rarely change them up! I wanted to do a little post with a few of my holy grail base products, ones I couldn't be without as I think they're pretty amazing. There are 2 products in this post which I am still a bit unsure of but I wanted to mention them anyway, as I'd love to know your opinions on them, the rest I am obsessed with.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation 

I've mentioned this product several times on my blog, just because I love it so much! I've been repurchasing this foundation for a few years now, I've just not found anything better. I did try the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation once and hated it so I went straight back to this. It just gives the best coverage. It covers any blemishes and blends in so well, either with a brush or a sponge. It doesn't feel heavy on my skin and it's definitely not one of those foundations you can feel all day. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Maybelline Matte Maker Powder 

Another product I've been using for ages. I'm not really fussy with powder, a powders a powder isn't it? They all do the same thing. I've found with this it helps keep my makeup in place and if I'm looking a little shiny on my forehead, a bit of this sorts it out instantly. I also love using this after contouring just to really blend it in. I blend any bronzer in anyway but I always go over with some of this just to properly make sure I don't look like I've just slapped mud on my cheeks. My makeup doesn't feel complete unless I've used this.

Superdrug Blending Sponge 

I blogged about this recently as I am so impressed with it and it deserved a full blog post. You can find that here if you're interested. I'd been using the Real Techniques Complexion Sponge for a while but I actually prefer the Superdrug one. It's a little bit cheaper which is always nice, but I love what it does with my foundation. It makes my skin look flawless. I'm not going to say I don't have spots because I do but this helps cover them so well. It's just brilliant.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush 

If I'm not going to use my blending sponge, I'll use my Real Techniques buffing brush. Before I was converted into using sponges rather than brushes for foundation, I was obsessed with this. It's brilliant to use if I'm in a rush and don't have time to be using a sponge, I love the finished look I get with this. One of the best brushes for foundation!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer & Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer 

Now the two products I'm just not sure about. I only seem to ever see good things about the Wake Me Up concealer, which is why I bought it, but I just don't think it's that amazing. It is good for under your eyes so if you suffer with dark circles or just feel some days you look particularly tired (I know I do) I do find it makes a difference for that. It's just with spots it doesn't really cover them. Maybe it's just me but I find I'll apply loads and it still won't have really covered them or any redness. I really wanted to love the Lasting Finish concealer, as I do with the foundation but I just find it so hard to work with. It dries really quickly and it's hard to blend. I don't know maybe it's just me with both of these but neither I'm properly buzzing about.

So thats some of my holy grail makeup products! The two I'm not so sure about I would love to know if you've tried them and what you think! Also, let me know if you love any of the things I've mentioned above, or what other base products I should try!
