I've got it covered!

My skin is horrendous! NO, really! I have combination skin and regular breakouts so I always need to be careful and wary about the make-up products I use. In the last few months I have stuck to using just one brand called Younique which offers MINERAL BASED cosmetics free from harmful chemicals and parabens and NOT tested on animals! Mineral based is better for your skin as it sits on top of your skin rather than sinking and blocking your pores. This alongside their strong ethics was what attracted me to them in the first place!

My skin before make up. Redness and  bumpy spots on my chin, darker areas around my eyes and redness around and on my nose.... I hate it but I have learned to live with it! I wake up and my skins always changing and keeping me on my toes!!!

These results are after I have used Glorious Face and Eye Primer and Touch Liquid Foundation in Scarlet. No concealer, no other make up used at this point! I have tried all kinds of brands and products and not one has given me this coverage so easily and so effectively! The liquid foundation dries to a soft powder finish so my face is left so soft too! Both products are lasting me ages as well, especially the liquid foundation as it has a fantastic 'dropper' applicator and I only use 3 or 4 tiny droplets each time.

The products are also packed with some fab nutrients to help my skin too -
