For a foundation that's buildable, hydrating and offers medium coverage...I've been loving the Touche Éclat All-In-One Glow Foundation by YSL Beauty. 

The Touche Éclat All-In-One Glow Foundation by YSL Beauty provides a natural looking, flawless and glowing complexion thanks to its hydrating and buildable benefits. 

You can look to achieve a fresh and healthy glow with this long-lasting foundation, making it perfect for everyday or for a special night out with the girls. And not only that...it's a foundation that looks to even out your skin tone as well as eliminating dullness and smoothing out fine lines. This foundation doesn't contain any nasties being parabens, sulfates, talc and it doesn't clog the pores which is amazing. 

I really love how it's very buildable which means you can look to achieve a light to medium (all in one) coverage with this foundation. This foundation looks to give you the perfect glow - without the caked or dry skin look which is essential when it comes to achieving a flawless look. If anything, it works to leave your skin feeling hydrated and very natural looking. It's the perfect foundation for those who wants to achieve a light to medium buildable coverage and a luminous finish for the skin. 

Essentially, the luminous finish foundation contains an advanced formula of oil-free ingredients including 70% water, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and antioxidants. Furthermore, it has actually been clinically proven to show that it provides an intense hydration and improve skin texture while creating a healthy, luminous shine-free complexion. 

I've been applying this foundation by using a makeup sponge (spritzed with some makeup setting spray) so that it allows me to build on the foundation coverage. For more coverage, simply repeat the application.

Curious to find out the 3 basic steps into achieving a flawless and smooth skin complexion? 

Enbacci offers a luxury skincare range made suitable for skin types. Furthermore, their formulas can be used by those who have sensitive skin. Most importantly, their products are all manufactured in Australia. 

I tried out the 3 basic steps (including the Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Scrub RRP $45, Detoxifying Clay Mask RRP $44 and the Pore Minimiser RRP $40) needed in order to achieve a glowing and healthy skin complexion by using products from the Enbacci range. 

You can look to purchase the Enbacci range from their official website here

Check them out below: 

STEP 1: Scrub with the Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Scrub by Enbacci

Firstly, you want to prepare your skin by looking to exfoliate any dead cells and polish the skin. The Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Scrub does a good job in looking to leave your skin feeling smoother, softer and brighter looking. Simply massage the product onto your face and gently use circular motions, this will help to even out your skin tone and any sort of discolouration. 

This scrub is full of Vitamins A, E and F which helps to maintain your skin's moisture as well as other much needed fatty acids such as Linoleic, etc. I tend to use a scrub twice a week in order to keep my skin looking and feeling toned. However, on average you should be exfoliating for at least once a week but this is entirely up to how your skin feels after an exfoliation treatment. 

Benefits include: 
  • Your pores will feel more cleansed and clarified 
  • Brightens up your skin tone 
  • Skin feels cleansed, polished and smooth 
  • A perfect skin rejuvenation treatment 

Step 2: Mask the skin with the Detoxifying Clay Mask by Enbacci 

Next, you want to deep cleanse the pores and look to replenish the skin by using a Detoxifying Clay Mask that's full of vitamins. This mask is made with a combination of kaolin and bentonite clay as well as macadamia oil, jojoba oil and Shea Butter. I felt that this mask helped to draw out any impurities, dirt or oil under the skin's surface, leaving your skin looking cleansed and nourished. Masking helps to stimulate blood circulation which essentially gives you an instant glow. 

Benefits include: 
  • Unclogs the pores from dirt, oil and impurities 
  • Rejuvenates the skin 
  • Increases blood flow to the face 

Step 3: Minimise the pores by using Tea Tree Oil, Pore Minimiser by Enbacci 

Lastly, after a detoxifying the skin from the impurities it's always a good idea to refine the surface of the pores. Enbacci's Pore Minimiser comes with tea tree oil which helps to reduce acne bacteria and promote skin healing. This product comes with a silky smooth texture which leaves your skin complexion feeling less rough and more toned. 

Benefits include: 
  • Anti-inflammatory 
  • Reduces the appearance of obvious looking pores
  • Blurs out any imperfections

Here's a snapshot of my MUST have skincare essentials I'll be packing in my hospital bag.

Just to give you an overview of these products by Weleda, they can be used for everyday. I've found these to be really effective for my skin, whether I'm looking to even out my stretch marks and skin to simply staying dry under the arms - I'm definitely loving these top three products by Weleda

Check out my Top 3 skincare essentials for pregnancy below: 

Nipple Care Cream, Weleda, RRP $30.95 

I've heard that in preparation for breastfeeding and during pregnancy, Mothers will encounter sore, tender and cracked nipples...which is why a Nipple Care Cream by Weleda comes in handy. Even if you suffer from dry nipples, this product still works amazingly well as it's super light weight. 

Thanks to Aloe Vera, Marshmallow and natural plant oils, they work well together to soften and care for the nipples, providing the much needed relief. 

I'll be definitely packing this product in my hospital bag as I feel that it will be super handy to have. It's better to be prepared than never! 

Stretch Mark Massage Oil, Weleda, RRP $27.95

I've been switching it up with my massage oils because I wanted to see what other products will work for my skin. As for Weleda's Stretch Mark Massage Oil (which helps to prevent stretch marks with its almond oil), I've been definitely using this product twice a day. Although I've been applying on various oils on my skin since the first trimester, I've finally developed stretch marks which are a natural part of pregnancy. 

After using this massage oil by Weleda, I feel that it has definitely reduced the amount of stretch marks on my skin. It also does a great job in leaving my skin feeling moisturised, supple and toned. The Stretch Mark Massage Oil only uses natural ingredients such as Sweet Almond Oil, Vitamin E, Rose, Neroli and an extract of Arnica which specifically helps to prevent stretch marks from forming. 

With continued use of the Stretch Mark Massage Oil, you can look to expect a prevention of stretch marks as it also helps to increase your skin's elasticity and smoothness. You won't exactly see the stretch marks go away completely but it's a great way to keep the areas well nourished and moisturised. 

Pomegranate 24-HR Roll On Deodorant, Weleda,
 RRP $16.95 

I'm loving this deodorant featuring Weleda's Pomegranate 24h Roll-On which leaves fresh and fruity notes of orange and davana. This is definitely one essential I'll be packing in my hospital bag because it will come so handy for those sweaty underarms. This product works well without plugging the pores and it's also free from nasties such as aluminium salts, fragrances, raw materials and colourants. 


Have you tried any of the above?

We all know that Real Techniques is Australia's number one selling makeup brush brand...here are some of the top 3 brush sets you need! 

Of all of the brushes I've tried by date, the Real Techniques brand is by far the best I've tried out so far. They offer brush kits for every beauty lover out there, especially if you're after a specific set that does a certain job. Each of the brushes have been designed by Youtube sensations Sam & Nic Chapman, where they offer 100% cruelty-free synthetic brushes. 

A few months back I recently attended a Make-up Masterclass hosted by award-winning Australian make-up artist, Sarah Laidlaw who has been using the Real Techniques brush range with her clients. 

Sarah says: "It really is surprising how many Australians still use their fingers to apply makeup! As well as being a much more hygienic option, using a makeup brush really does give a much more flawless finish, ensuring makeup stays on longer and uses less product so those favourites last longer. Once people 'tool up' with Real Techniques, they won't look back, application is quick, easy, and of course results in a professional makeup finish."  
When it comes to the quality of the Real Technique brushes, I've found that it doesn't shed as much hairs as the other brushes I've used in the past. The bristles are super plush and very gentle on the skin. The soft fibres help you to achieve a flawless and high definition finish which is why I've been loving these brushes so much. 

The Top 3 brush sets by Real Techniques includes of the below: 

Flawless Base Set, RRP $47.50 

This is the perfect starter kit to create a natural and flawless look. The kit comes with four brushes being the contour brush, detailer brush, buffing brush and square foundation brush (plus a brush cup to store all of the brushes neatly in between uses - I find this so handy). I love how sturdy these brushes feel and they're easy to hold and grip. 

Sculpting Set, RRP $47.50 

These brushes are designed so that if you're looking to accentuate any of your favourite feature, this is the perfect kit to get! The kit comes with a sculpting brush, fan brush and setting brush which is perfect for finishing your overall makeup look. Once again it comes bonus with a cup holder which allows you to store your brushes neatly. 

Enhance Eye Set, RRP $45

Last but not least, you cannot go wrong with this great value set which features five essential brushes you need to enhance your overall eye look. It comes with a medium shadow brush, crease brush, fine liner brush, shading brush and a lash separator (plus the storage cup). These are all good quality brushes which help you to achieve a flawless eye look.

I'm really impressed with the staying power of this lip product as it's so comfortable and hydrating to wear on the lips all day long. It offers a gorgeous sheen for the lips which somehow make them appear more plump and fuller (no need for lip injections here). As for its overall scent, it smells super fruity and sweet making it a pleasant lip product to use for everyday. 

Beauty tip: You can also dab a little of the lip product onto the cheeks to make them pop with a subtle gorgeous colour! 


Rouge Pur Couture, Glossy Stain, in shade #48 Orange Graffiti,

The Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain is a revolutionary lip product that combines the texture and shine of a gloss, with the long-wear of a stain. It offers a lightweight texture that instantly melts onto the lips, delivering an intense glossy shade for the lips. It's very long-wearing for a Glossy Stain and the colour is super intense and vivid. You can look to layer on the Glossy Stain on top of the Rouge Volupte Shine, Oil-in-Stick by YSL.
