Concealer is a must have in my day to day routine and I prefer a high coverage for both under the eyes and on any blemishes. Like with my foundations finding concealers that are light enough for my skin and are creamy enough not to drag on my dry skin is quite difficult but each one in my collection gets the job done. I haven’t reviewed all of these individually but there are plenty of mini reviews here and here.

What are your favourite concealers?

Summer calls for less make-up on a day to day basis, I don’t know why it just does and these products really haven’t left my face since the sun started shining.

Base

If I wear a base at all I will reach for my NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser mixed with the No7 Skin Illuminator which adds a very subtle glow from within look to your skin. The concealer that I can’t stop reaching for is an old classic the Maybelline Fit Me! it’s a perfect colour match, not to thick but still creamy enough to glide on seamlessly. To contour out those cheekbones I am loving the Sleek Contour Kit its not too muddy on my fair skin and blends easily. The Contour Kit also comes with a highlighter which adds a little more shimmer to the face without letting you look like a glitter ball.

Finishing Touches

MAC Painterly Paint Pot as a base all over the lid, to get rid of any discolouration on the lid and then lashings of mascara, i’m currently using the Clinique High Impact Mascara which adds a lot of length to the lashes. Due to laziness i’ve just been applying Carmex to my lips to keep them moisturised.

Do you wear more or less make-up in the summer?

Maybelline Fit Me!|Review

Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer£5.99|Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation£7.99.

After my beloved Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation ran out I thought it was time to try something new for a day to day foundation and I had been eyeing up the Maybelline Fit Me! system for a while so took the plunge and  purchased both the concealer and the foundation.

The foundation is in 115 Ivory and is the lightest shade that I have found so far, however I think it is still a little too dark and slightly orange for my Casper the ghost skin; despite that I really love the foundation and with a fair bit of blending I can work it as my skin tone. It’s a medium coverage, easy to blend and with a wear time of around 6 hours-probably more with primer. Although it provides an excellent coverage it still lets things like freckles show through which I love but if you want more of a high coverage/blank canvas look then this might not be for you. In terms of packaging it has a pump which is always a plus and I think it looks quite classy for a highstreet foundation.

After selecting your foundation Maybelline then very helpfully gives you three concealer shades that might be right for you so you don’t have to swatch the whole lot. I went for 15 Fair which is the second lightest shade. I love this concealer, its very creamy and blends really well but the best part is it is multi purpose you can use it both under the eyes and on any problem areas; so if you aren’t a make up nerd and just want one product for everything then this concealer is for you.

Have you tried the Maybelline Fit Me! products?
