My key to a flawless base - no filters required!

I'm a fan of a filter, don't get me wrong, but I'm on a continual search for a product or method that gives me a flawless base with no filters required. And I think I've found it...

Tips for creating a flawless base without using a filter! #bbloggers #beautyhacks


The first step in creating a flawless base lies in preparation. Think about it like this - if you were painting a wall, you would sand it down to smooth it and possible even apply base coat first. Your skin is the exact same.

I like to prepare my face with serum and moisturiser. I'm currently using the Balance Active Vitamin C serum and Hyaluronic moisturiser which is an AMAZING range that is really affordable yet packed with active ingredients. There is a full Balance Active review on my blog but in short, my skin has never been better.

After that, I apply the first of my miracle products...

Elf Poreless Face Primer

This product is a miracle worker! The Elf Poreless Face Primer* is available in Superdrug for £7.50 and is amazing. I've used other primers and not seen much difference in my skin or longevity of my base. I have combination skin with large pores on my nose. My makeup disintegrates on my nose and looks patchy. This primer made an immediate difference. My skin was smoother and my pores were definitely disguised.

This primer has tea tree oil in it which makes me happy as occasionally primers can clog my pores but I feel that this prevents any breakouts. I certainly haven't had any! It also has anti-aging ingredients in it as well, perfect for my 30+ skin!

The final step in this process is to then apply loose powder. BEFORE your foundation. I learned this method from Wayne Goss on YouTube. Applying the powder after moisturiser and primer locks it all in place and fills in those pesky pores. Applying foundation on top of this ensures a flawless base! 

And it's as simple as that! 

What are your secrets to flawless skin?
