my current base

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint: £29
My current base is a mixture of two very different foundations, blended together to make the perfect base. My skin has gone a bit temperamental recently, with a lot of redness coming up on my cheeks and a few spots creeping up on my forehead. I wanted something with good coverage and a soft luminous but also matte finish. Cue my base duo of the Jouer Matte Moisture Tint and the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. The Jouer Matte Moisture Tint is a beautiful light matte tinted moisturiser. The finish is very soft and luminous and it tends to be my go-to base on good skin days. It's easy to apply and brightening while also keeping redness at bay. A lovely everyday foundation. Now in stark contrast the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer is an industrial strength, fuller than full coverage foundation. It's very stiff, hard to blend and a nightmare to work with alone. The smallest dot provides absolute full coverage for the whole face. Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer is best used mixed with something else and I find mixing a small blob in with my Jouer Matte Moisture Tint. The finish is a beautiful luminous, matte medium coverage foundation without any of the cakiness. Popped over my new favourite primer- Laura Mercier Radiance Primer, it's just an absolute dream!

  12. lovely review :) I love products like the Kevyn Aucoin Skin Enhancer, have you tried double wear? If so would you say that this has an even fuller coverage than that?

  13. These two products look like a dream on your skin, and I love the idea of popping them over top of the Radiance primer. It sounds like a trio I would get on quite well with! xx

  14. Your skin literally looks so flawless all the time. Mixing is a good tip. However if getting skin like your beautiful complexion means trying out some Kevin Aucoin, then that's what I'm gonna do! My skin is so bad at the moment and needs some revitalisation.
