Time to cleanse...

Now, one thing to know about me is that I love make up. I'm addicted to MAC, and I've always bought foundation from there. However, I've decided that MAC foundation isn't quite right for me. So I've made the decision to start again with my whole make up routine.
The other week I went shopping on my own. It was lovely I must say. 
I want to make my skin beautiful, so I've decided to take up a new cleansing routine! 
These are some of the products I bought :)
I'll start at the very beginning...
Cleanser: Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. ITS AMAZING! I've decided never to use face wipes again as they do nothing for my skin. I heard some reviews about this Liz Earle cleanser, and I'm so glad I bought it. It's a creamy texture, and just fabulous!

You just rub it into your skin, use a muslin cloth (which comes with the polish) to rub off the cleanser and then wash your face with warm water. it doesn't sting your eyes or anything and it removes every bit of make up! I will definitely be looking into more Liz Earle products! My skin feels like a babies bottom! Oh and it costs about £14, and totally worth it.

Toner: I bought a cheap toner from the Simple range. Seems to be working!
Foundation: I bought 'Supermoisture' foundation from Clinique. Firstly, I just want to say how good Clinique were. The lady spent an hour with me, trying out all the foundations. My skin seems to have lots of different tones - yellow, pink, nude etc...nightmare. But now I have the perfect colour match and texture! What's good about Clinique foundation is that each one does 'something' for your skin. Mine is for Dry Skin. Its lovely and has a satin look to it rather than matte which is what I prefer. I also got a free concealer. TREAT!
Brush: The Stippling brush is to apply the foundation - it really blends the foundation in well. It's by Real Techniques. 
Lipstick: And of course, I made a cheeky little trip to MAC where I purchased a lipstick. Its from the Luster range and is called Lovelorn. I wanted one that I could wear everyday and was quite neutral but had a little colour in it. This one is lovely! And very creamy. 
So I've been trying out all these products over the past week and all of them are excellent! My few new steps to beautiful looking skin!
