You know what this post will not be? A makeup tutorial. Because, as I’ve mentioned before, I am a complete makeup novice. In fact, between the time bareMinerals asked me to partner with them on their new bareSkin liquid foundation launch and the time the makeup arrived on my doorstep, I had multiple makeup-related dreams. Apparently, I have makeup anxiety. In one dream, I was so overwhelmed with the idea of trying out new makeup, I just went to a makeup counter and had a professional do it for me (obviously, a great long-term strategy, there). In another, I watched hours and hours of YouTube video tutorials before attempting it myself. You’d think I was building a rocket ship over here, not trying out a new liquid foundation. Happily, when I finally got to try it out on my own, it was clear that my makeup anxiety was not warranted. I was amazed at how evenly and easily it went on. You don’t even need a tutorial (let alone a dozen hours of YouTube videos). I’ve been wearing powder foundation, but it only took one day of wearing this to be completely converted. (bareMinerals has been working on a liquid foundation …

It takes just five minutes to match and order your perfect color. In-store color match technology for foundation or concealer has been a savior when it comes to choosing the right shade. As a person with an uneven skin tone because of acne scarring and freckles that I sometimes conceal, it can be hard to shade match the foundation that will look flawless on my skin. BareMinerals’ new concept, originally conceived by MatchCo, is an app that brings the process to your home. Honestly, any opportunity that I can find to utilize my phone for something other than Instagram is always exciting. The app, Made-2-Fit, is super intuitive and easy to follow. If you love the self-checkout aisle of your grocery store, this will put you right in your element. The process is easy to follow: Tap your camera phone a few times against a white piece of paper, then tap it in the same way over four points on your face (left and right forehead, left and right jawline). The bonus: You can look like a mess while doing this without anyone around to judge you. The new Made-2-Fit Fresh Faced Foundation formula is said to be lightweight and oil-free with hydrating and anti-aging ingredients such as vitamin E and green tea, in addition to plumping element white lily extract. The aim is a foundation that looks like skin, which is why the formula is buildable for a smooth finish. The cost is $49 for a 30 ml bottle, but the app is free. I’ll update you with a match report when my formula arrives.

I'm all about trying different concealers, this week I'm talking the Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer. Have I found a creamy concealer that doesn't cake?

I’m sure there are lots of people out there who say you should just embrace your dark circles. Not me. Ever since I started wearing make up it’s been all about covering up those pesky panda eyes. I’ve tried all the creams and the caffeine roller balls and I’m pretty certain mine are hereditary. I’ve found eye creams that have made them appear less dark, but nothing that makes me feel confident going make up free at all. Alongside the battle to fix them, comes the battle to hide them. I’ve gone through so many concealers over the years and at one point was using three at once. I’ve tried colour correcting concealers, heavy concealers and Touche Eclat dupes. Between terrible colour matches and folds that made me look about 60 I didn’t have much luck. Recently, I had at least found a concealer that was a good match – this Kat Von D number. It still wasn’t quite enough coverage though. I was also having to make do with it folding throughout the day. Luckily, I happened to discover two new products at around the same time which, paired with my Kat Von D, became an unstoppable force for my under eye circles. NYX Dark Circle Corrector I haven’t had the greatest of experience with NYX before. I’ve been pretty underwhelmed by the products I’ve tried before. However after hearing people rave about this corrector, I decided to give it a whirl. It was pretty reasonably priced, so I knew it wouldn’t be a massive loss if I didn’t like it. This cream is extremely thick. I reminds me of the Bare Minerals concealer in consistency. I hate the design of the pot. The walls are so thick that I frequently get lots of the product underneath my nails when they’re long. The pot itself does at least feel weighty and well made which hasn’t been my experience of NYX products before. This gets patted on underneath my eyes with my fingers after I’ve applied my foundation. It’s a little darker than I’d like but it tends to blend well. The peachy tones here definitely help to calm down the darkness. Some days I can just about get away with wearing this on it’s own. On full make up days though, I need the extra steps. Kat Von D Lock It Concealer This concealer I’ve been using for a while (full review here) and in this technique I find a couple of blobs is enough to cover up my circles nicely. The thing that makes the difference here is the brush. I use an Ecotools Eye Defining Brush. This helps me tap the colour in without streaking. Moreso than any other concealer brush I’ve used before. At just £6.99 it’s reasonably priced and the quality is fantastic. I’ve had it over a year now and there’s no signs of it needing replacing soon. ELF High Def Undereye Setting Powder Superdrug finally stocks ELF! The first thing I picked up was this undereye setting powder. Folding has always been my biggest issue when covering up the dark circles so I had to give this a try. At just £4.50 it’s a massive steal. The first thing I will say is bin the brush. It’s terrible and way too small. Instead I’m using an angled blending brush from Look Good, Feel Better. It can be slightly off putting the first time you open the pot as it is pure white. At this point I should say that the pot is annoying and feels cheaply made. More often than not it’s a bit of a faff to get open. It’s only a minor issue, but it’s definitely worth saying. You don’t need a lot of this though. A slight dab with the brush and just sweep it under your eyes. Even if you do go a bit OTT, it sinks in invisibly so there’s no need to worry about ending up with strange looking under eyes. Once I sweep the powder over I do get a couple early folds but all I need to do is sweep the brush under my eyes a couple more times and then I’m good to go for the day. It holds everything in place and due to the colour, brightens up the area nicely. Cover your dark circles I’ve been using this for a couple of months now and I’m really happy with it. The combo of the NYX cover up and a good colour matched concealer means the darkness doesn’t come through at all. Finishing off with the ELF powder means that by the end of the day I no longer look like an old lady thanks to many folds. I’d say the NYX and the ELF are the must have products in this routine. The concealer is very easy to swap out and if Boots hadn’t discontinued their Stay Time Concealer, I’d be recommending that as a more affordable alternative. Any liquid concealer that matches your skin tone nicely will work here. Have you got any under eye coverage tips? Let me know in the comments below! This post contains affiliate links.

I’m forever in search of an eye cream that will get rid of my dark circles! After getting low on my Mizon eye cream, I decided not to repurchase and to try something new. After doing a little research online I found the Innisfree White Tone Up Eye Serum recommended quite a bit. This serum claims to be all about brightening and hydrating your eyes and that’s exactly what I need. In terms of how it does that, I didn’t find huge amount of information on the Innisfree website. It contains berry extracts to brighten the skin due to their antioxidant properties. But where it claims to moisturise the eye area it doesn’t actually highlight which ingredients help with that. It also claims to have “mineral micro pearls” to brighten the eye area. Never heard of those before but I sure was intrigued! The serum I bought it from my favourite trusty Ebay seller and as usual it came super quick. I really do like the aesthetic of Innisfree. It strikes a fantastic balance between looking pretty and profressional. The pale colours and clean fonts really make it look like a brand you can trust. This tube is 30ml and comes with a great little pump attached. Particularly when it comes to eye creams I much prefer a pump, as it’s so easy to use too much otherwise. One pump is the perfect amount to do both eyes. The pump itself sounds a bit squeaky and I’d worry if the tube was any bigger, would the pump break halfway through use? This cost me around £11.50. Considering I’ve been using it for over two months and still have half left, this is a fantastic value product. The results It’s all very well and good saying that something is fantastic value, but does it actually work? I wish I could say that my dark circles have all gone but sadly they obviously haven’t. I would say they have improved though. The eye area in general is brighter and I haven’t any fine lines or wrinkles start to appear. I would like a little more hydration around the eye area to help with my make up staying in place but that’s my only complaint. Overall I’m really happy with this. I definitely will repurchase this (when it gets back in stock, it’s currently sold out) and give it another few months before potentially switching. In fact I like this range so much, I’ve just added the white tone up toner into my routine. Innisfree is slowly beginning to take over my skincare routine – if you have any great recommendations, please let me know in the comments below! This post contains affiliate links.

There are people who do things by the book and go far; there are far fewer who truly go their own way and make it big. Leslie Blodgett, creator of bareMinerals, is kind of the poster child for going with your gut. She created a beauty empire around a single product: A makeup powder made of ground-up, good-for-your-skin minerals.

I have been a HUGE fan of bareMinerals for over five years now and would never go back to wearing anything other than bareMinerals. I feel it's perfect for my skin, feels light and airy and works well.
