Clinique Even Better Makeup...



Dan's mum buys the majority of her makeup from Clinique and always has done, but there are a few things from the brand that her skin doesn't tolerate or that she simply isn't interested in using, so whenever she gets a bonus gift, she takes out what she wants and gives me the rest! Last time she got a bonus gift, all she wanted was the lip gloss and I got the rest of the products including the tin. Among the products was this Clinique Even Better Makeup in the shade Natural, which is too pale for Dan's mum and a little too dark for me, but nothing a helping of fake tan couldn't sort.

What surprised me the most was that there are 26 shades of this foundation, which is the reason I am swaying more towards high-end at the moment when it comes to foundation. It allows you to find a better match, which isn't that easy and you can avoid those dreaded 'tango' jaw lines. With SPF 15 you know your skin has that extra protection when wearing this, though I know your supposed to put on an SPF beforehand even if your make up already has some in, so I'll be on the hunt for one of these come pay day.

This liquid foundation is suitable for all skin types, it evens out your overall skintone, leaving a flawless finish that looks almost airbrushed. To help achieve this look, I dampen my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge and apply the foundation straight on to it, I then dab in on to my cheeks, forehead, nose and chin and then use a bouncing motion to blend the product in to my skin. 

This foundation provides moderate coverage that is buildable, which I love in a foundation as this allows you to wear it light on summer days, or to build it up to cover any break-outs on those days when you need a little extra confidence boost and it lasts a good eight hours, so you don't have to worry about touching up at work!

Have you tried any of Cliniques foundations?
