“Prepping your base is key.

“I either use the Embryolisse cream, which is the viral cream, or the Bobbi Brown face base.

“I’ve got the Embryolisse on now, it gives you a lovely glow.

“The next crucial step is to zone prime.

“So many people don’t do this, so take a blurring primer – I love the Coco Gold primer by The Beauty Crop or the Lancome blur stick and I just pop this anywhere I have texture or pores or get oily and this is going to help lock it in place and look smooth.

“To help the longevity of my makeup, I’ve been loving spraying my Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush spray after I’ve primed, before I apply my foundation. I found my foundation goes on so much better and lasts longer.

“Then the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Airbrush foundation is my best friend for longevity, if I’m going on nights out or if I’ve got a whole day, like a wedding. 

“It’s gorgeous and it lasts the best for me.

“The key part for me – Hudda Beauty Easy Bake loose powder.

“Everyone needs to use it – you don’t have a crease in sight, it keeps you looking flawless all day and keeps your makeup locked in place. 

“It’s incredible.

“I use The Beauty Crop Oui Cherie mist to lock in moisture but also set at the same time. 

“Then to give us a little bit of extra blurring, I use the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye pores or the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush powder.

“This is going to blur a bit more of the texture, making us look more airbrushed and help the longevity, helping everything stay in place a bit longer.

“Then I use a setting spray to set. My favourite is Milk Makeup. 

“And just like that, you will have a flawless base which will last you really well throughout the day.

“These products just last so well on the skin.”
