New Make-up

Finally, at the end of January, I will have a wage again!

I would love to stay on maternity, but man, I can't wait to have some income.

I have been using the dregs of my make-up bag since my trusty Dior has run out. When I get paid, I am looking to revive its contents.

I like light-wear to medium coverage (with the choice of building to heavier) foundation.

I also need a good concealer, primer, blush and mascara.

I have fair, combination skin.

What do people recommend?

I got some Armani just before Christmas. I'm pretty pleased with it - the coverage is good and it feels nice to wear. It's the maestro primer, luminous silk foundation and precision concealer. The mascara is also lovely.

Thank you, Dusty. I will look it up.

Nars sheer glow or all day luminous foundation buildable and you use very little.
Nars also has a new velvet matte tinted moisturiser when I went to the counter the make up artist said it was good coverage.

The charlotte tilbury wonder glow I really like as a primer.

For concealer I have a few I like nars radiant creamy concealer, mac and my staple is the bobbi brown peach corrector. They dont sit on lines provided you prime under eye and set after.

I am looking at the becca and laura mercier primer aswell but haven't decided.

Dior Star foundation
Bobbi Brown stick foundation
Clinique new Silk Superbalanced
Or something by Nars - sheer glow.

Concealer- Bobbi Brown creamy concealer

Blush- Bobbi Brown (there's a theme here...)

Mascara- always Lancome Hypnose. Not cheap but the only non-clumper that builds I've found.
