Favourite Makeup Base Products | Life Of Dahlia

Hey everyone, let’s get into it, today I’m going to be sharing with you my current favourite base products. Let me know in the comments what are your current favourite or holy grail base products.

I’ve included some from my favourite Aussie brands, which I naturally gravitate towards because I can grab them locally. Some of these are products that I use every day and others I use occasionally but really enjoy I’ll talk about this further on.


Foundations, Concealers, Powders

I’m not one of those people who can wear foundation all the time I will often feel like my skin is suffocating, but when I do I’ve been really enjoying the ‘Matte Velvet(I may have changed my mind on this one since first publishing this post.) and ‘Luminous Hydrating’ foundations by DB Cosmetics. The shade range is ok but I still have to lighten it because I’m quite fair so this is when I will use my trusty Australis ‘Match Maker Lightening Drops‘ come in, I couldn’t live without them.

My current go-to concealer is the Australis ‘Bye Bye Blemish’ It can be a bit dark by I love using this under my eye because it has a slight peachy tone so it helps cover up my dark circles and its a setting concealer so I don’t have to worry about it going anywhere.

My go-to powder for setting my base is the Chi Chi Cosmetics ‘Real Minerals’ Translucent setting powder, I love this for when I’m not looking for extra coverage. I may have to look at the rest of this range once I’ve finished up some face powders in my current makeup project pan, they also have a range of shades as well as this one so we will see.


Face Primers

Savvy By DB’s ‘Smooth Finish Primer’ has been a staple in my routine for quite a few years, I really enjoy it for smoothing out my pores. I have also been enjoying the DB Cosmetics ‘Rise & Prime Luminescent Primer’ it gives a nice dewy glow, I actually really love mixing a little bit in with the ‘Luminous Hydrating’ foundation if I want a more sheerer coverage.

I’m currently panning this Nutrimetics eyeshadow primer, it’s not bad actually it don’t mind it, it does help my eyeshadow last all day, who knows I may repurchase once I have finished up my bunch of other eyeshadow primers.

What are your go-to base products? let me know in the comments.
