If you follow me on Instagram you'll probably have seen me declare my undying love for Milani on several occasions! They're one of my favourite affordable brands and since coming to the Uk I have been slowing adding to my collection so I thought it was about time I shared it with you guys...

A glowing base has always been my go to look. Having dehydrated skin means most dewy bases are pretty much guaranteed to look good! But there's something about spring that just calls for a glow-y, lit from within base. So I thought I'd share my go to products for a flawless radiant base..
3 Concept Eyes Back to Baby Glow Beam | £15
Glowing skin for me starts with a glowing primer. One I've found myself reaching for a lot is this. I believe this is a Korean Brand. The primer itself has a slight Pink, pearlescent sheen to it. It's actually pretty thick for a primer so I tend to use a tiny amount. It leaves my skin so smooth with a nice glow to it. Base products blend with ease over the top of this too.
Estee Lauder Illuminating Primer | £25 | REVIEW
Another primer I reach for a lot is this one. Although, I don't find this super glow-y but leaves my skin so smooth and ready for base products. I also think this would be a great option for those with oilier skin who like a glow because this isn't too glow-y or shimmery.
Maybelline 24hr Super Stay Concealer | £6.19
I fear this is on the verge of being discontinued because I haven't seen it in shops for a while which makes me so sad. I swear Maybelline always discontinues concealers I love! But anyway this is actually a matte concealer that is perfect for covering blemishes. I tend to do this before foundation. I just find everything blends a bit more seemlessly and shade matching isn't as much of an issue.
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation | £29 | REVIEW
I've recently rediscovered my love for this foundation! This is a great base that really gives the appearance of naturally flawless skin. It's not the most dewy foundation I own but it's not matte nor satin, it's like in the middle. It offers medium but build-able coverage, in a formula that's super blendable! This really meshes with the skin and looks so natural! The wear time is also really good, it lasts a good 6+ hours with powder on me!
LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Foundation | £11 | REVIEW
Now for a super dewy foundation this is what I reach for! This really gives skin a glow. It also has full coverage and really good wear time. The formula is super build-able and looks natural on the skin. This is so glowy I do need to set this. This is the ultimate dewy flawless foundation!
Milani Retouch Concealer | £12 | REVIEW
To conceal my dark circles and highlight my under eyes I love this concealer. The coverage is really good, yet natural. It really highlights and illuminates my under eyes! I just love it. I don't think this would work overly well on blemishes because it does have a dewy finish. But for under the eyes I can't recommend this enough!
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Powder | £33 | REVIEW
Obviously I like to look dewy but when too many dewy products are involved they can turn sweaty very quickly so I've been reaching for a more mattifying powder. The powder blurs everything and sets everything down without looking flat or cakey. I don't find this drying on my skin either, it just leaves me with a flawless looking base! I really can't recommend this enough!
Milani Bronzer | £11
I love bronzers with a slight bit of shimmer in them too, nothing over the top though I just find this gives my face an extra bit of dimension. This Milani one is perfect. I have the shade 05 which is a warm tone so I apply it to where the light would naturally hit. The formula is super blendable and gives a naturally sun kissed look to the skin.
Pixi Glow-y Powder Highlighter | £14 | REVIEW
No dewy look is complete without a good highlighter! This Pixi offering is ideal for giving the skin a natural yet highlighted look. The shade Santorini Sunset is a Champagne colour that doesn't have a hint of glitter or chunkiness to it. It just catches the light beautifully! It's one of my favourites for a flawless dewy look!
So that's how I create a flawless dewy base.
Have you tried any of these? What are your picks for a flawless base?
Until next time...

Pur~lisse was a brand that I not really heard about until they kindly sent me pretty much a whole skincare routine of their goodies! The brand is Asian meets French skincare. Both of which are well known for their amazing skincare. So it's the best of both worlds! I've been using their products for a while now and I'm ready to report back to you guys...

Haircare is one of my favourite aspects of beauty but one I surprisingly don't talk about a lot on here! I go through a lot of haircare products, I'm always on the lookout for something that is going leave my locks looking amazing. On this mission I have found some products that have really wowed me and become staples in my hair routine. So I thought it was about time I shared my top products for dry, frizzy, bleached hair! For reference my hair is super thick and long too. Naturally it is has some weird wave / curl thing going on.
