My Makeup Base Staples

18 comments

Last week I talked about my favourite concealers and this week I want to talk about my base staples. These are my trusty favourites I use day after day, to make me look a little more alive. I want to talk about my all time favourite foundation, concealer and powder. Now I'm not one of those girls who can just go out with a little bit of BB cream and look beautifully radiant. I need all the foundation, concealer and then powder just to start me off! 
My all time go to foundation has been the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation. This has been my saviour for at least six or severn years. I always have to have this in my collection. To me this is the perfect foundation. It gives medium to full coverage and is so blendable. I can really rely on this foundation for all occasions. This will cover any blemishes and problem areas and I know I can rely on this to still be flawless all throughout the day and night. I've even slept in this after a night out (gross I know!) and woke up with flawless makeup! Even though it gives you a flawless finish, this isn't heavy. With the added comfort serum, this foundation will leave your skin fresh and able to breath all day long. This is the one foundation I always recommend, with the added SPF you just cannot go wrong. I often choose my trusty Rimmel Lasting Finish over any high end foundations - this is a true saviour!
My next base staple is my go to concealer. Although I have a fair few favourite concealers, this one has just stood by me for so many years and never let me down, it's the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. To me this is the drugstore concealer of all concealers! I use this to cover my blemishes, even out my skin tone and lighten up my under eyes. This gives me amazing added coverage that lasts me all day long. It's creamy and so blendable, I cannot fault this. For under £5 you can't afford not to try this!
My last go to base staple is my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. I'm one of those people that just cannot complete my base look without setting with a powder, it just doesn't feel complete! For years I've used the translucent stay matte powder just to give that added coverage and reduce the shine. My makeup always stays put all day and night and I put this down to using this powder. It creates a gorgeous flawless base every time. This powder is perfect for all occasions, the lightweight formula makes it so easy to create a beautiful natural finish for those no makeup - makeup days. If you're having trouble trying to get your makeup to last all day long, then you need to give the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder a go, it's a real handbag staple too!

I'd be lost without my base staples, I've relied on them for so many years I don't know what I'd do without them. I'd love to know what your base staples are beauties?

  1. I literally use the exact same products apart from I use the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation instead of that one, although i've been meaning to try that one for ages! I love the Collection concealer for both my undereyes and covering any spots it's amazing! xx

    1. I've been meaning to properly try Match Perfection too! I hear that Match Perfection is great in the Summer or for a more natural coverage and the Lasting Finish is obviously better for higher coverage and long lasting:)

  3. Lasting Finish is definitely the best Rimmel Foundation, I'm currently using Match Perfection and I just can't get on with it! But I love my stay matte powder and lasting perfection concealer
