It’s not often i stumble across new make up and scream, yes literally scream ‘OMG, i love this’. However, a couple of items from the Origins make up range have really shaken up my daily routine. It’s actually the first time i have tried up their make up, usually i turn to Origins for skincare, but am massively impressed with these items of make up – they really deserve a beauty snog!
Origins Brighter By Nature Foundation:
This newly launched compact foundation from Origins is all about corrective coverage the natural way. Offering medium to full coverage, and packed with 100% natural ingredients, this foundation instantly transforms the clarity of skin by disguising discolouration, age spots and uneven skintone – something that more and more of us battle with as a result of negative environmental exposure.
I loved the way that excess oil was just sucked away, like it never existed, leaving my skin matte and flawless. Apart from the great coverage, and long lasting wear, skin is protected with SPF 30 protection – a must for preventing UV damage.
|Available in 12 shades, i use 06 Light/ Medium – Neutral
Although in a power format, the texture is very smooth and creamy. It applies gorgeously. I have always shied away from powder foundations, which in the past have left me looking grey and cakey, this wasn’t the case with Brighter By Nature, my skin was illuminated and even.
As an added bonus, the blend of essential oils contained, actually help prevent further discolouration to the skin. Overall this is not only a super item of make up but also works by protecting skin in various ways. Its definitely worth trying out if you like full coverage make up without the nasties.

Quick, Hide! Concealer
For me, when it comes to concealer i just want it to do the job – and hide the unwanted. Its a simple ask but in reality there are not many products that do the job. Oh i have tried them all; concealer sticks, liquids, powder concealers, pastes, creams…the list goes on. After overcoming the issue of finding a perfect colour match, i would then have to deal with products becoming flakey and cakey, or settling into lines and instantly ageing me, sometimes i was better off without concealer!
|Available in 6 shades, i use 03 Medium
|So, honestly when i tried out Quick, Hide! i didn’t have much faith. BUT, this product actually does exactly as it says. It hides dark circles and blemishes, it is creamy and smooth and there is just no messing about. It lasts all day and does not creep into creases or lines.
At £12 this is well worth the investment, it will perk up tired eyes and hide those pesky blemishes.
