I've Finally Found The Perfect Base

I feel like ever since I started wearing makeup all those many moons ago, I've been trying to create my perfect base. My skin kinda does what it wants to when it wants to really which makes it SO hard to find products that don't crease or go patchy when applied to it.
I've been a lover of the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder for agessss but for a while now I've been looking for a couple of products to put under it just to bring out a bit more radiance as my skin is dull dull dull...

My first step to my whole makeup routine is to apply the Boots Botanics Radiance Balm. I bought this after reading the babe Poppy Eyes post all about the Botanics range and from the first time I tried it, I've been hooked. I've gone through 3 tubes now and I can see myself repurchasing this for a very long time. It's so easy and quick to use, you literally just apply it with your hands and instantly it brightens up your skin and it really does brighten and add radiance. I definitely recommend it if your skin is dull, just like mine! You can wear it on its own for a little boost or under makeup for some more dewyness.

Next I apply the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow. Some people might think using the Boots Radiance Balm and this is a tad extreme but for me, it's the best base before I apply my foundation. Wonder Glow on it's own is also fab but paired with the Radiance Balm it's bloody brilliant. It literally gives you an instant pick-me-up and makes your skin look much healthier and less dull and less tired !! Yes it's expensive but yes, its SO worth it.

Now you all know how I feel about my beloved Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder and I'm now on my 4th bottle! I use shade 4 and my Real Techniques buffing brush to apply it. It's amazing and thats all you nee dot know about it really. It doesn't crash or gather in any dry areas (which I have a lottttt of !) It also smooths over any redness and imperfections you have gives you a flawless base whilst stilling completely natural and not too heavy.
