If you couldn’t tell by the screamingly obvious title – because I’m a well behaved blogger and disclose things [insert “yo girl, tell people this is sponsored” face emoji here] – this is a sponsored post. Which, if i’m being totally honest, kinda makes me a little sad, and here’s why. There is a tendency to assume that sponsored work = a warped opinion, and this is sad because today’s post is one that not only am I really passionate about, but it also contains bloody brilliant products that I highly recommend.
So why am I passionate about a makeup post? because you’re a superficial twat Well, this post, is based around products that really do produce the most flawless base, which is fantastic. No really, when I’m off to an event, or a meeting (especially with a skincare/beauty brand) and I want my skin to look it’s best, it’s perfect. However, as I’ve got older [insert “hysterically crying face” emoji here] I’ve realised that a part of happiness is about being content. And a part of being content is accepting your imperfections.
So in short, whilst these products are absolutely incredible at covering flaws, embracing them first is far more important.
Empowering Beyonce/Oprah shiz over… here’s the low down on Vichy Dermablend.

Starting with the foundation. Typically, my skin – which is generally blemish free but of course decided to have a reaction to a skincare product, hence the mini breakout on my cheeks – has some redness around the nose, pigmentation under my eyes, ridiculously dark circles and bags (which are definitely not Chanel). As you can see from the before and after, Vichy Dermablend foundation has completely evened out my skin tone and covered pretty much every flaw. What I absolutely love about this though is the it still manages to look natural. It has a beautiful texture/finish, matte but luminous and with SPF 35, no parabens and completely hypoallergenic ingredients, it’s perfect for those looking for a full coverage foundation or those with acne.

Whilst the foundation is something that I’ll save for special occasions, Vichy’s Corrector stick certainly is something that I’ll use on a daily basis. It has a really creamy texture which is perfect for blending the product in seamlessly. It also means that it covers blemishes perfectly without making the skin look cakey. Because it is so full coverage, it does a fab job at covering under eye darkness although you do have to set it well or it will crease quite badly. Overall, it’s by far the best concealer that I’ve discovered as of yet for blemishes and one that I would very highly recommend.

Finally, to set everything in place we have Vichy’s setting powder. An extremely finely milled loose powder that is undetectable on the skin and sets everything into place perfectly. It mattifies without flattening the face (which is important for me as I need all of the definition I can get) and is great for all skin types. Also, this powder, paired with Crown brush Stippling brush is a match made in heaven!

So that brings my flawless base post to an end, I would absolutely love to know what your go-to products are for a flawless base? Any product recommendations for me? Also, because I am well aware that my makeup application is slightly shoddy, check out the Vichy Dermablend advert below to the see products in action πŸ™‚

As always, thanks so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!

    I think it's unfortunate that sponsored posts are often misconceived as warped reviews, but ahh, the world. What can we do?

    The foundation's given you an incredible base, Elle; you look flawless! I've not tried Vichy before, but I'd love to try them one day!

  5. This foundation looks absolutely amazing! It looks as though it really perfects the skin and makes everything look lovely and glowy! The concealer also looks fab for dark circles, I need something like that right now!

  9. Emma Copland says:

    I suffer from adult acne and Vichy Dermablend is one of the few products that actually covers my skin without being too heavy, cakey or causing more breakouts. It was a hard product to get my hands on for a while but I am so glad it is now making its way into the mainstream market. Oh an you look lovely as ever!

  10. Lucy Cole says:

    I gave the foundation a go and couldn't agree more, it's such a fab foundation!Xx

  16. CB says:

    How did you find the concealer if you're not wearing any foundation? I am always on the hunt for a concealer but they seem to be either amazing and concealing but impossible to lend or blend beautifully but aren't quite heavy duty enough..

    Love the look of the foundation! I really should get one with SPF – I think I'm in denial about how wrinkled I'll be when I'm 30!

  17. Wah! I have ridiculously dark under-eye circles too πŸ™ I've been using MAC's Pro Longwear concealer which does a fab job at brightening up my under-eye area. However, I'd like to find another product that does the same thing if not better. So many bloggers have raved about NARS Radiant Creamy concealer but I wasn't a fan so quite keen to give this one a go (the photos were the seal of the deal) Xx


  18. I've never tried any products from this brand, but after seeing your flawless finish I need to!

  19. I know a lot of people are wary about sponsored posts but if I trust the blog like yours then I don't mind either way πŸ™‚ I think the products DO look amazing and your skin is so good before anyway I am so jel! xxx

    I think this range from Vichy is fantastic & I love the videos they have created with the range so far (have you ever seen the one about the guy covered in tattoos? it's amazing). Your skin actually looks gorgeous without foundation too, but with Vichy you go that one step further & you instantly get super flawless skin. I like this foundation because even though the coverage is so high, it still looks so natural. Need to look into the corrector stick next & I'll complete my trio πŸ˜€ x

    Oh Elle, I always love reading your blog. You make me laugh and I genuinely think we'd get on in person!

    But back to the product – I'm loving the look of this! It's got really great coverage. I've never tried Vichy and I've seen a few blogger posts which is making me slowly edge towards their website…
