Foundation of the Year Award goes to...

Hey Bees!

So many things happen over the festive season; parties, family gatherings, shopping etc. And what do these things mean? Photos! Many of us have been putting on our best face for these occasions, which leads me to share with you my favourite foundation of the year! I'm sure you've all heard of...

Bourjois Healthy Mix
This foundation is perhaps one of my best beauty buys of 2012! I picked it up in Boots as I'd heard a lot about it in the YouTube and Blogosphere! The brand is also French which makes it extra appealing! The radiance boosting foundation contains apricot, melon, apple and ginger. When I saw the foundation I immediately loved the sound of all these natural ingredients. I go to an all girls school where nobody really makes an effort with makeup, and even on the weekend I like to look natural and just give my skin a lift. And that's exactly what this foundation does. I apply as much of the foundation as I need and it makes my skin look glowing and healthy. The bottle boasts sixteen hour longevity; I don't wear my makeup for that long but it does last up to twelve/thirteen hours on me. I wear the shade 51 Light Vanilla which matches my skin tone well. The only fault I would have with this foundation is the yellow tone, which sometimes can be a bit too much. I wouldn't recommend this foundation for people who like really full coverage and like to build up their foundation a lot.

Thanks for reading guys! Do any of you like this foundation or having you tried the serum version? Let me know below!
