For December, we thought we would try something a little bit different than a straight forward review and it being the festive season, we took inspiration from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to bring you our Make Up of Christmas Past, Present & Future…
Foundation is such a personal thing.
Does the formula suit your skin type? without it sliding off halfway through the day or gathering into nooks and crannies? No one needs nook and cranny enhancement.
Does it come in a shade for your colouring? Will it be too orange or ashy? Will it change colour throughout the day?
Will it have a weird smell that you have to put up with actually on your nose?
Will it come with an absurd method of dispensing or application?
Well I’ve tried and tested a fair few foundations (lost count) and the following are my current go-to choices for my oily skin.
My ultimate coral – MAC’s Vegas Volt
So I just had a quick look through my make up drawer on the hunt for my beloved MAC Vegas Volt and in the process counted 14 coral toned lipsticks. Fourteen. And I bet if I looked through my handbags that roam the house I would find more.
I feel I need to admit that I have a problem, a coral problem.
Looking back I think it started when I bought my first Vegas Volt. I loved it instantly. Softer than my usual favorite red lipstick, it suited my pale skin and dark hair perfectly. It was so easy to wear from day through to night and from there it seems to have spiraled. I have nude corals, orange corals, pink corals, coral lip glosses, coral lip liners, coral blushers and coral stains.
There is most definitely a coral out there for every skin tone, eye and hair colour. Apricots, peaches, oranges and pinks are perfect for brightening the skin without washing it out. Have a gander at my ridiculous collection…
