Dry skin can be your foundation's worst enemy. As base products often cling to and accentuate dry patches of skin and rough texture, a dry complexion can leave your base looking uneven and less than perfect,

Prepping your skin with a hydrating primer is the perfect way to smooth your complexion before applying your favourite base product. Creating an ultra-smooth and hydrated base, a primer designed for dry skin will help your makeup to stay in place and looking perfect all day long.

    Coming from a large family of mainly women has made me passionate about all things beauty; from routines passed down from my grandmother, to trying the latest products and trends. Starting over 7 years ago when I was an MUA at MAC Cosmetics, my love for makeup has now evolved into making sure my skincare creates the perfect canvas for any look. I love anything that can make my skin feel fresh & bright while accentuating my features – Bobbi Brown's Face Base is my favourite at the moment! My makeup sits so beautifully on top and make my skin feel so fresh and hydrated!
