Perfecting My Base With Charlotte Tilbury

A few weeks ago an email popped into my inbox from Charlotte Tilbury, asking me if I'd like to try some of their products. The fact that a brand as big as this one wanted to work with me made me squeal with excitement. I've never tried a Charlotte Tilbury product so I was very excited about the chance to finally try the brand for myself. The package I received contained three of their famous foundations that I have heard many good things about from friends and other bloggers. When it comes to my makeup base, I have always been a very loyal Bare Minerals fan and I didn't ever think I would sway towards using anything other than that, however, I have definitely found some new favourites that I have added to my collection. 
I've always been a full coverage girl so I wasn't really sure what to expect when trying Healthy Glow for the first time. Healthy Glow is a universal shade tinted moisturiser designed to give you a radiant, fresh, glowing complexion. The shade is ever so slightly too dark for me but it does work and I imagine it would work with a wide variety of different skin tones. I have found this product to be one of the easiest I've ever tried, a little goes a very long way so it only takes a small pea sized amount to even out my complexion and keep my skin feeling hydrated. I'm super impressed by this product and I feel really confident when wearing it, which is a first for me as I am usually used to wearing full coverage makeup.

The next product I have been trying is the Light Wonder Foundation. This is a lightweight product that includes ingredients to hydrate, smooth, illuminate, minimise pores and reduce wrinkles. Available in a wide selection of shades this foundation gives you a lightweight coverage perfect for daily wear, I find myself only adding a small amount of concealer under the eyes and I am good to go. What I really enjoy about this product is how light it really feels whilst on the skin, I completely forget I am wearing any makeup and yet any of my insecurities are still well covered.  The shade is perfect for my complexion and I really admire how Charlotte Tilbury has such a wide selection of shades available to suit everyones needs.

Finally, my current favourite base product and one I will 100% be repurchasing is the Magic Foundation. A full coverage foundation with SPF is exactly what I'm used to so this product is perfect for me. Available in a wide range of 15 shades ranging from pale to dark, there is such a great selection to choose from. I apply this with my beauty blender which helps me to achieve a flawless finish, although the coverage is full, the product does not feel heavy on the skin at all and I adore how my skin looks and feels once I've finished the application. I suffer from very dry skin so to find a full coverage foundation that does not cling to dry areas or crumble whilst being worn, is a big win for me.

What is your favourite base product?
