Friday Face: High End Heroes

For my last Friday Face post, I did an all-budget look, using products which all came from the supermarket or chemist/drugstore. This week, I thought I’d go the other way, and do a high-end face, using some not-so budget products! I call these my “High End Heroes”, because while I’m willing to experiment with budget products and try out anything and everything, I can’t afford to do that with their pricier counterparts so these products are the ones I love to death and (with a couple of exceptions) always re-purchase when they run out. The products are:

1. Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

2. Ilamasqua Ric Liquid Foundation in RF120

I hardly ever use this now: the coverage is fantastic, but the colour is just too yellowy for me, and although I can dial it down with the pure white shade I also bought, it’s just too fiddly to do every day, and I’m prone to adding too much white and looking like a vampire. More like a vampire, I mean. If I could find a better colour match, though, I’d definitely buy it again.
