This has been my go to make up for a while now. However I will be honest and today I did swap my Skin Base for the Jemma Kidd Light as Air foundation  as I couldn't wait to try it out! First Impressions? Well I am a bit peeved that the tube isn't full (about a third of it is just air!) I do feel a bit like I have wasted my well earned cash a bit, but hey it may become my HG foundation so we will see. 

If you follow me on twitter you would have seen yesterday that I tweeted about the fact that before I started blogging I never bought makeup items 'just because'. I always waited till whatever product I was using ran out and then of course I would pop to boots and buy a replacement. These days (well since starting blogging) I buy a lot of things because others rave about it and I feel I'm missing out by not having it in my 'collection ' (Hello Light as air, I'm looking at you) or if I find something that in my head is a lower end dupe for something high end that I maybe cannot afford at the time I'll snap it up. I know I'm not the only one that does this!

So it got me thinking, I don't want to label it as a 'makeup ban' or whatever, I just want to look at my collection and start to actually FINISH products rather than just going out and buying something new because everyone says its amazing. I have so many products that If I just used them on a regular basis, they would be finished in no time. I know a lot of girls change up their makeup on a weekly basis and blog about it ( Charli, Lauren, Adrienne) I don't think I will do this as a weekly thing, I may just take a selection of products that I just want to get finished and then use them continuously until I have done so. Of course I will keep you all up to date on this by blogging about it!  :-) So is anyone else going to join me on this little (big) task? Or maybe you are also doing something similar to reduce your collection of makeup? Let me know in the comments!

Much Love
