You will not be tangoed! (Guest Post)
Everyone's been there... great night out and you wake up to see pics on good old facebook of you looking a little on the orange side of life. While some of you may enjoy the oompah-loompah look I for one do not, especially because I am more than a tad pale! Due to the au naturale Morticia Adams look it is essential that I find an all covering, subtle colour giving foundation and, because of my student ways, all at a reasonable price.
I'm not usually overly fussy about labels, but I will say that when it comes to finding the perfect foundation you have to spend a little bit extra to get a good result. I have tried several palest of the pale foundations and they either make me look Katie Price esq or they make my skin look heavy, flat and dull. Not a good look. A chance trip out in Maceys, New York, changed my seemingly never ending quest to find the perfect foundation when an overly bubbly sales assistant asked to do my make up. Clinique in Alabaster. My make up revolution began and I have never looked back. It's a little pricey at around £25 a bottle but it's not so much that you can't treat yourself to something that is definitely worth every single penny.
