My Base Duo with Too Faced







Colder months call for a make up base switch up so I've done just that with a brand I've never tried before, Too Faced Cosmetics. I have read countless rave reviews on their Born This Way foundation and I needed something that would give me good coverage while still leaving a slight dewy glow. Born This Way is an oil free foundation that aims to leave skin naturally radiant. It contains Coconut water to replenish moisture, Alpine Rose to brighten skin and Hyaluronic Acid for a smooth, youthful appearance. All sounds too good to be true right?!

Thankfully the above isn't just clever selling tactics. This frosted, glass bottle of  lightweight, dewy goodness really does make my skin look and feel better. One pump is more than enough to cover my entire face using my Nanshy stippling brush, never have I used a foundation where I only needed one pump for a medium coverage. I can get quite dry at the sides of my face as the weather changes and I haven't noticed it as much while using Born This Way, I'm just left looking healthy and glowy.

I picked up Amazing Face by Too Faced in TK Maxx a few weeks ago, a sun-balancing flexible, foundation powder. I'd just recently used up all of my powders I had laying around and as I was able to find a light enough shade for a bargain £6.99, I had to buy it. This is quite heavy duty if I over do it, so I use a powder brush and just dust my t-zone to set my foundation. Gone are the days I want my make up to be matte and powdery as possible. The dewiness of Born This Way works so well with Amazing Face that it's going to be my fail safe duo this Autumn. 

Have you switched up your base for Autumn? What are your perfect base products?

    1. Ooo, I haven't tried that yet. I use to use the usual one but found it too heavy so may have to try the light version xx

  2. This year I've finally found a skin routine that works for me so I've been able to step into the world of matte foundations. I have to say, since the colder weather has set in I've been loving the L'Oreal Infallible Matte, the coverage is flawless!
    I'm so desperate to try the Too Faced Born This Way foundation though! *cries* x
