I thought I'd do a review of my "everyday" foundation and concealer. I have lots of both types of these cosmetics, but Barbara Daly's are my most used and I wear them pretty much every day.

First off, my foundation. I use Barbara Daly Moisture Foundation in "Ivory".
It's always done me proud and I've bought it several times. It lasts ages, too - I've been on my current bottle for about 5 months and, although I wear it everyday, there is still loads left and it hasn't started to dry out or separate or any of that horrible stuff that some foundations start to do after you've had them "too long".
As the name suggests, it's moisturising. I actually rarely get dry skin, but it's great for keeping my skin hydrated in England's cold winter air.
It has a great consistency, too. It's quite thin and gives light-medium coverage, which I love as I like some of my freckles to show through, but it's also build-able and blend-able. It doesn't feel at all heavy on your skin, and it has great staying-power. It's also gives a matte finish, which is great if you have combination skin (like me!). The moisuriser absorbs quickly so you don't have to wait before you can continue applying your makeup, unlike some moisturisers and tinted foundations I've tried.
You apply it with a little sort-of spatula which is attached to the lid. You could then use a foundation brush or sponge, but I find it best just to work it in with your fingers.
Barbara Daly Moisture Foundation is available for £8.00 from Tesco stores and online.

Next, my Barbara Daly Concealer in "Fair".
I much prefer my concealers in pots than one's that you apply with a wand or a stick, so this one is a winner for me. I apply it straight with my fingers rather than using a brush as it's just easier to apply and blend. Again, it lasts ages - I bought this 5 months ago with my foundation and, although I use it daily, I still have over half left. It hasn't gone dry or horrible in any way, but make sure you apply it with clean fingers so you don't get anything unwanted in it.
It's seems ever-so slightly on the oily side, but it doesn't look or feel oily at all on the skin. The coverage is beyond perfect, it's super easy to blend, and gives a 100% matte finish. I use it under my eyes and on my lids - it has excellent staying-power and doesn't crease, and also helps my makeup to stay put for longer.
Barbara Daly Concealer is available for £5.00 from Tesco stores and online.

I always finish set my foundation and concealer with a powder, mainly to help control shine due to my slightly oily skin. My favorite product for this is Avon Colour Trend Oil Control Pressed Powder in "Translucent". It keeps shine at bay and, when used with my foundation and concealer, it gives my skin a totally flawless finish. I keep one in my makeup bag, one in my car and one in my handbag at all times so I can top it up when I need to.
Avon Colour Trend Oil Control Pressed Powder is available from your Avon representative or online. Prices vary.

...And here is an image of what the three products look like together! They're my perfect everyday combination.



Now, obviously I don't go out just looking like this, so I've uploaded a photo of today's finished makeup and my chosen products below...
