Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation + FOTD

Today I thought I would share with you a foundation that I have been using for months - Bourjois Healthy Mix. This always gets rave reviews and I have liked it since I began using it but only now that I've nearly finished it am I realising just how good it is. It has a really nice coverage level for me that is light enough to wear in the daytime but also can be built up to wear on a night out too (especially when combined with the other hundred products I pile on).

I have really dry skin and this is one of few foundations I've tried that doesn't cling too badly to dry patches and gives a nice natural skin like finish. If you have normal or oily skin I think this would have a much dewier finish but on me it's very natural looking. I've also tried the Healthy Mix Concealer and I really like that too. It has good coverage but is still very light and has a lovely finish.

I'm wearing Healthy Mix in these photos and hopefully you can see the nice natural finish it gives. I'm also wearing all this:
Face - Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in Light Beige, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Cool Medium (I couldn't find my Healthy Mix concealer but I love them both), Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel
Brows - Soap & Glory Archery in Blondshell
Eyes - Stila Smudge Pot in Taupe (can't find a link anywhere, sorry!), L'Oreal Super Liner Eye Liner in Black Lacquer, Lancome Grandiose Mascara
Lips - Autograph Ultimate Wear Long Lasting Lip Lacquer in Ruby Red - This is currently on sale for £3 and is amazing! I wore it for the first time yesterday and am so impressed. It has a nice colour and consistency but what amazed me was the lasting power as it stayed on perfectly through a very greasy, messy dinner - incredible! I will definitely be looking at more colours in the range.

Apologies for the frizzy hair btw, you'll quickly learn that a lot more time and effort goes on my makeup than hair.

Since I've very nearly finished my Healthy Mix Foundation I need a replacement but would like to try something new so if you have any recommendations for foundations for dry skin let me know! Thanks for reading :)


  1. Lovely look! :) I have dry skin too and I've found some days I need to add moisturizer in with foundation... I love this foundation but also the L'Oreal Dream Lumi is another great drugstore option.
