My Current Face Power Duo!

I have a quick makeup review to share with you all! 

Firstly I do not wear much make up at all, mostly because I can't stand the feeling of foundation or heavy makeup on my face. Before I moved over to LA I thought it was time for a new foundation! Now, I do not wear foundation how you should. I don't think I have worn foundation all over my face for over a year and that is no exaggeration. The only areas I apply foundation is on and around my nose and thats it. I was previously using the Laura Mercier foundation and I did and still do really love it, but knowing I would be in hot weather I wanted to come away from liquid foundations as I can't bare the thought of it clogging my pores when its hot. This being said I came across Cover FX.

 After a long chat with the makeup assistant and her telling me their products are free of gluten, mineral oil, fragrance, parabens and talc, she sold it too me and I purchased the powder foundation. I have been using this foundation for over a month now and I LOVE it. It looks so natural you can't feel it on your face and the lasting power for me is amazing. 

Once here in LA I then decided it was time for a new concealer too. I have been using the Laura Mercier camoflage concelaer for years now and I swear by this stuff, if you have something to cover up this will do the trick! However I am not keen on the ingrediants and I love to keep my products as natural and beneficial for my skin as possible. Ive always wanted to try Tarte Makeup out but they do not sell it in London. 

So now being in LA I went to check the brand out and I decided to try the Amazonian clay smooth operator concealer. Again this product is free of Parabens, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes and Phthalates which is another reason why I wanted to try it. Anyways I have been using this for over a week now and with my Cover FX foundation I have found a new love.  

I find the concealer does an amazing job coverage wise and I have actually seen an improvement in my skin since using it. I also haven't had to top it up through out the day so the lasting power is great too!

Both products are easy to blend and are both build-able.

Here are the links to the two products so you can read about them for your self and see the benefits they have.
