I have a bit of a problem though, some types of foundation are just not good for my skin. Whenever I have a break and do not wear any foundation, say if I have a week off work and don't bother wearing any make up, my skin is great and I have no problems. As soon as I start wearing foundation, I break out in spots. It is so frustrating.
I have a routine that I use everyday, morning and night, of cleansing my face and making sure all make-up has been cleaned off. This seems to have helped tremendously. It just seems like it's the foundation that's the problem.
Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse
I loved this stuff, it was great! This foundation made my skin look so perfect. It was really good to apply as well, it just smoothed so easily over my face. It was lovely. However, this was by far the worst foundation for my face. It made many spots come up so no matter how good it looked, I had to stop using it.
Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
There wasn't anything special about this foundation. It was ok, but it didn't look really good and it didn't do wonders for my skin. I also found myself applying quite a few layers of this foundation onto my skin for it to actually make a difference, it didn't smell so nice either.
Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions
This is the foundation that I currently use. I have been using it for at least the last year and so far this one is by far the best for my skin. It covers my face really well and looks quite good. I have definitely had clearer skin since I have been using this foundation, however I still do get spots when I wear this everyday.
I did try another Clinique one but I can't really remember what it was called, I think it was the Superbalanced Makeup one, however that felt really quite heavy on my skin and was too thick for daytime make up.
So now I really don't know what to do. I think I need to go for a shop to maybe try another foundation. I'm not quite sure where to start though.
If anyone knows of a good foundation to solve my problem then let me know!
What have I been up to today?
I went to work this morning, I really love where I'm working at the moment. When I say work, I mean placement, I'm a student. This week I'm working in a different hospital to where I have been previously working, it's quite a small hospital, but I love it there! The staff are so friendly and nice and helpful, and it's busy-ish but it's not so busy that you are constantly rushing around and get really stressed. You can work at a nice pace. It would be the ideal place for me to work when I leave Uni.
Luckily I was only working for half a day today, I feel so ill! I think I have a throat infection, I have a temperature and feel really shivery and achy. I don't want to be ill!
Despite me feeling like rubbish, I am now going to get my anatomy books out, and start studying for my summer exam. How geeky! But I really want to pass, and get a good grade. I want to prove to myself that I really can do it if I put my mind to it.
I didn't get so great grades in my first year, mainly out of laziness. So this year I have really got to try!
