The Autumn/Winter Base.


I love nothing more than clear skin and a flawless base and that is what I currently have. Finally it's taken a while to get to where I want to be, with a little bit of scaring and a lot of tears I finally re-invested in some old favourites. The NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer and Bobbi Brown Corrector. Together these three create a seamless base that is made for the colder months!


After moisturising or using a primer, I buff a small amount of NARS Sheer Glow into the skin and build up until I'm happy with the coverage. Remember a little goes a long way, so use a buffing or stippling brush and start from the middle of your face working out. I then take the Bobbi Brown Corrector and warm my finger up in the product, pressing it gently along the dark circles under my eyes. Taking a clean concealer brush I then blend this out around the eye.

Then using the same brush I take some concealer and cover any blemishes or scaring, blending as I go. Finally using the translucent powder and a small fluffy brush I usually set all of my hard work. At this point you would be able to contour but I like to just finish off with the warmth of a bronzer and a little bit of blush on the apples of the cheeks.

Last year I used these products until they ran out! And plan on doing the same this year. I know that NARS Sheer Glow is seen as a spring/summer foundation but I find it too thick and prefer to use it when I'm looking for a natural glow and don't need to worry about touching up.

What do you think of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation?  Have you got any autumn/winter favourite products?
