Updated Dry Skin MakeUp Menu

Wearing makeup has now, unfortunately, become a bit of a bit of a struggle. Since being on month 2 of Roaccutane where my dosage has increased, my skin sensitivity has also increased and the dreaded DRYNESS which I can't seem to escape from!

I have completely ditched any forms of powder which you can read all about here as it is still so bizarre an experience for me every morning, where upon I would quite literally whack my face with  powder.

After applying my morning skincare, I love to apply the newly added, Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer, which is also described as a moisturizer and primer in one. I know I would have loved this when I had my usual oily/combo skin and can see if working for pretty much all skin types. It gives my skin that boost of hydration which my skin needs as it gets drier throughout the day. Not only this, but this 'primerizer', contains Hyalauronic Acid which is great for plumping the skin with moisture and it contains Niacinamide which smooths and helps with pores and texture.

I am still dabbling with foundations and currently sampling the 'Estee Lauder 'Perfectionist' foundation', which is very dewy and offers light coverage. But, I am still loyal to my Double Wear Light as it does not budge and I apply tonnes of moisturiser underneath and do not set which allows for a juicy, dewy look.

I am in between two concealers, the 'Loreal True Match', as it is so dewy and hydrating as this is what I need and the Urban Decay Naked Concealer which carries more coverage but isn't as hydrating.

As well as this, my new face contour/ highlight situation is the 'Tom Ford Shade + Illuminate Duo'. GUYS, this has been sat in my drawer for 2 years and I've not used it! Since anything powdery looks a joke on me I love all cream products. The cream highlighter legit looks like your skin, there Is nothing shimmery or glittery about this, I straight up blob this around my face with my beauty blender for #da glow. The bronzer is a gorgeous yellowy undertone bronze, it's not cool toned and mimics you've actually been on holiday, I have so many people at work asking if I've been on holiday because the bronze is also UNREAL!

And last but not least this Clinique Moisture Facial Spray is the best hydrating spray EVER. Whenever I walk past a Clinique counter I admittedly, drench my face in this and mine has just come in the post! It is soothing, calming and hydrating and if your a #drybitch YOU NEED IT.
