...I think I might benefit from a little make up <understatement>
Where do I start? I'd like to wear something on my skin everyday, but I definitely don't want it to look like I am wearing foundation. Will a tinted moisturiser be enough at my age? I do OCM so don't wear any moisturiser currently, how would that work?
Can you tell me where to start? What shop/brand to go to, price IRO £20 or less for foundation. My skin is combination, fair, freckle, seem to have stopped getting spots but have blocked pores and dry patches sometimes.
Thanks, hope you can help me feel a bit better about myself
If you're very pale, you might find No 7 too dark but they do lovely stuff.
I recommend some boots time delay products - it's on sale at the minute. I got their radiance booster cream for about £6. It's got hyaluronic acid in it, which makes your face look nice. Don't ask me the science bit! It's good under foundation anyway.
Next most important products are blusher, lip balm and mascara. I recommend looking at Dainty Doll for blusher if you're pale. You can mix your blusher with Vaseline for easy lip colour.
I'd also get a neutral eyeshadow and maybe a highlighting cream for your eyebrows and cheeks.
