If your saw my Money Saving Tips blogpost last week then you may have seen that one of my tips was to shop your stash more and make use of some old favourites within your makeup collection...Well I took my own advice and had a dig through my Alex drawers and popped a couple of oldies but goodies back into my makeup bag to get some use out of them again and I thought I'd share them with you today!
Firstly I knew I needed to take a look at my base makeup, for some reason my skin is really all over the place right now and my usual foundation and powder combination had started to look cakey and just wasn't lasting well like it usually does, so I decided to go back to my old faithful Rimmel Stay Matte Setting Powder and thought I'd try L'Oreal's Infallible Foundation again. The reason the L'Oreal Infallible Foundation was back in my makeup storage was because it was a smidge too dark for me however I got it back out again and tried it and actually it looks perfect especially when my whole base is done, and wow I'd forgotten what an amazing foundation it is, it's lightweight, long lasting, has great coverage and more importantly it doesn't make me look cakey, woohoo! As for the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, I have no idea why I ever put in back in my makeup storage because I bloody love it, it's the best powder on the high street for sure!
What hidden gems have you rediscovered recently beaut's? I'd love to know!
