    Felt a bit crappy so bit of make up and self care. (Desperately in need of a visit to salon for a wax, but what the heck).

    Started using garneir BB cream. I feel like I now do really benefit from at least SOME coverage. I like it but it rubs off onto things iv found. I guess most BB or CC or foundation will do that though.

    Always looking fresh and bright. 👌🏻
    I haven’t tried setting sprays and my skin is too dry for powders but what I do is to mostly just foundation or concealer on the T zone and any random acne. That way there’s not much to transfer.

    That's a good idea actually to just use the coverage, where needed like T zone. I will try that next time 👍💖

    You ALWAYS look amazing

    You need to set it with a setting spray or a translucent setting powder. I use Morphe setting spray but Revolution and NYX have setting sprays also. High end setting sprays would be Cover FX or Urban Decay. That should reduce your transfer. I don't use powders with my mature skin.

    Oh thanks for that ! One thing I don't have, and never had, is a setting spray!

    I have came to realise that powders aren't great on my skin, either. I had a kind of translucent powder that I recently binned. It just sat in each and every crease and dried my skin out.

    @feelinfoofoo You may look into a primer as well so that the makeup sits into the lines/creases less. I use the Bobby Brown cream primer but I also like Benefit Cosmetics primers. Urban Decay and Cover Fix also have good primers. If you need a more budget friendly primer try NYX or The Ordinary (The Ordinary is my holy grail for skin care on a dime). I would stay away from anything matte or big flakes of glitter. I have also used a setting spray as a primer too.
    A primer will also help set your makeup so there is little transfer.

    Iv got a benefits primer I hardly used cos it seemed to become flakey? I am sure there is a knack to using primers...the benefit one seemed almost like silicon on my face if that makes sense. Like it didn't settle in. But it wasn't cheap, so i will go back to it and try different method I guess.

    I like clarins beauty flash balm. Not entirely sure it's actually a real primer though but maybe it is cos it says on the back, apply make up straight away....

    Thanks for all the tips, really appreciate it 😚

    If the benefits one is flakey then it's the wrong one for you. you probably do need a creamier primer. the clarins is really great one. I have Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm and its super moisturizing and glowy. You don't need much at all.

    @ExpressoLove11 and @FeelinFooFoo: the two of you really know how to bring out your grey (grey/blue) eyes with minimal eye makeup. Impressive as all get out!

    Thanks ladies 🤗 I'm usually smiley in photos but that lipstick brings the drama 😅 @MaltedTea thank you, I never learned to do eye make up beyond eyeshadow and basic mascara/eyeliner and at this point I dont even know where to begin
