Natural Foundation and Cleanser Recommendation|Ask Kate #2

The reason I love working in the make-up industry is that I get to help people out with make-up whether it be a client or my best friend asking me for help so I’ve created a new little blog series where I publish some of the questions I get asked and my answers!

Q. I need some serious make-up advice. Can you recommend a good natural foundation and cleanser? I have acne on my forehead and I don’t wear foundation too often but I don’t wear foundation too often but I don’t want to go barefaced all the time!

A. Foundation wise Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation can be applied really lightly for a subtle glowy  coverage or applied slightly heavier for a more full coverage look. If you are happy to spend a bit more money then the NARS Tinted Moisturiser is amazing. Cleanser; my two favourites are the Nivea 2 in 1 Cleanse and Tone and Soap&Glory Peaches and Clean.

If you’ve got a question you want answered then leave it in the comments!

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?

If you follow me on Instagram then you may have noticed that i’ve been a little more bronzed than my usual pale self and thats because i’ve been using the Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan and mostly recently the Dark version. It’s a mousse formula which instantly shows you where you have applied the tan, it lasts for around 5 days but fades naturally and doesn’t go patchy even if you get a little hot and sweaty.

Before I tan its important to get rid of any left over tan from the week before and any dead skin so I have a smooth base for the tan, there are lots of body exfoliants out there but the Cocoa Brown Tough Stuff is amazing at getting rid of any unwanted tan especially on the elbows and knees.

Once i’m all tanned i’ve got to make sure my face matches my body and there are a couple of face products I use. If its just everyday I wear a thin layer of the Soap&Glory Glow Job which is a facial fake tanner which gives you a very healthy glow and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. If i’m going out or want a little more coverage I opt for the Rimmel Wake Me Up in Natural Beige which is more of a medium coverage but still super lightweight on the skin. As a concealer I love the Soap&Glory Kick Ass Concealer which is a very high coverage creamy concealer which cancels out dark circles, brightens the complexions and covers blemishes.

Woah super long post full of amazing products but what products do you use to tan?
