I am so happy to be writing this. It has taken me almost 9 yes NINE years to find my perfect foundation. I have been wearing foundation since the age of 16 realistically, when I started going out into the working/educational world and since then I have tried out so many to match my skin.
The other day I had a break through when I realised that over the past year I have constantly switched between two absolute beauties and I just had to share them with you!
1. Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation (Ivory) – When this is on offer I almost swipe it off the shelves. I don’t even think twice because I know just how good it is for my skin. My day usually starts at 5am where I wake up to go swimming or to the gym before work. When I get ready for work (6:30am) this foundation makes me look more alive and vibrant especially as it is so early on in the day. The shade Ivory is perfect for my skin tone and it does exactly what it says on the bottle by providing me with great skin all day (spot-free!) I actually also love the smell of this foundation as it reminds me of sun cream so it’s great to wear in the summer. It has the most amazing even coverage and leaves me with a great base to plant my bronzer and blusher on, on top. High five Rimmel for such an ace product!
2. Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Foundation (Ivory) – This is certainly a budget foundation but an amazing one. When my Wake Me Up Foundation isn’t on offer I always go for this. I know bloggers absolutely rave about the Lasting Perfection concealer from this brand and the foundation should be just as raved about in my opinion. This is a bit thicker than the Rimmel foundation but provides just as good of a coverage. It lasts forever and stays on my face until I take all my make-up off at night. Again, in shade Ivory it is perfect for my skin colour and provides me with the ability to cover up those dark circles on those late nights/early mornings! Thumbs up for Collection 2000.
