I have always been a big lover of Bourjois. The first item I ever purchased was the infamous chocolate bronzer that smelt amazing! Out of all the high street foundations, Bourjois has to be my favourite. Their Healthy Mix range is incredible especially for dry skin and it is pretty affordable too.
First the Primer. I kind of go through phases of using/loving primers. I am super fussy because I like a blurred primer to hide imperfections but I don’t like matte drying primers I still like it to hydrate so this can be a bit of an issue. I found the Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti Fatigue Primer and I was pleasantly surprised it’s super lightweight on the skin with a non-sticky, non-greasy formula. It has a bit of tint/colour which I like because it means I can actually wear this alone which has been amazing in this heat but also if I am wearing it under makeup it already evens out my skin tone which means my foundation looks better already. It blurs imperfections but still manages to keep my skin looking fresh and radiant which is exactly what I want.
The foundation I have really enjoyed using is the Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue foundation. They do a healthy mix serum which I did love at first because it is a gel-like texture which is perfect for my dry skin but it didn’t stay put for very long so I didn’t go back to it after I’d used it, although it still is a really nice foundation I use the shade No53 – Light Beige.
The Healthy Mix foundation is full of fruit extracts for all different uses like Apricot for radiance, Melon for hydration and Apple for youthful skin. It is enriched with crystalline pigments to even out your skin tone while letting in natural light for a healthy glow.
The foundation blends really nicely into the skin using either a beauty blender or a foundation brush and it stays put a lot longer than the serum version, it’s a slightly thicker consistency and it does give you a gorgeous glow and flawless finish, although definitely use some setting spray as it can transfer if you build it up a lot.
The Anti-fatigue powder goes hand in hand with the two previous matching products, this is in the shade 01 – Vanilla I am super fussy when it comes to pressed powders. I have dry skin as you know so I do not want a matte cakey mess to set my makeup. Although this is mattifying it is so lightweight and genuinely feels like I’m not wearing any makeup at all. It doesn’t give me that chalky effect like most setting powders, it’s full of vitamins to help your complexion and radiance and it is a joy to use, it honestly feels like silk!
These 3 beauties have been my current go-to base routine for the past few weeks, Do you use a cocktail of beauty products or do you stick to the same brand? I feel like the same brand of primer and foundation seem to work a lot better for some reason.
