FOTD featuring Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint

The Liz Earle Skin Tint has pretty much saturated the blogosphere at this point. When I received it, I was impressed with how it swatched on my hand, but wondered how I could make it work for my oily/combination skin.

Read on to see how I got on with it!

Let me start by saying that my skin has improved considerably of late. I've been trialling a ton of different products and am now terrified to stop using any of them! However I definitely feel that a lot of credit is due to Nuxe Crème Prodigeuse which you can read more about here.

With that out of the way, I still must emphasise that I am, and always have been, a foundation kinda gal, and a full coverage one at that. I am terrified of shine, and even when I am spot-free, I still suffer from redness and acne scarring which needs to be covered up.

So, how did I wear the Skin Tint? Simple. I cheated with a concealer and powder, covering up with MAC Studio Finish and powdering using Essence fix & matte (AMAZING) and a duo-fibre. The finish was still lighter that what I usually go for, and I loved it. I'm delighted to finally be able something more sheer with confidence, and this will be my daytime make-up of choice this autumn.

A quick peek at some of the products I used:

MAC Studio Finish Concealer NC15
Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint in Light
Essence fix & matte translucent loose powder
MAC Harmony
Dior Amber Diamond as highlight

Matte brown & black from Sleek Storm Palette

What do you think?


  1. That lipstick looks amazing on you and I must try the Essence powder as well since you say it's AMAZING :D. I would cheat with tinted moisturizers too, but they're just not designed for my skin I guess, I can't deal with them :( xx

  2. Loving ur lipcolor...nice FOTD :)
