Everyday Essentials #1 - Shu Uemura & By Terry


EE - NO, not the mobile network provider, but a new weekly feature I want to try on MouldyFruit. I present to you 'Everyday Essentials' - I was thinking about the amount of products I use on a daily basis and there are so many that I never get round to writing about, or even revisiting on the blog. I want everyday essentials to be about those products that I enjoy using day to day and as it's a weekly feature, products I've enjoyed using throughout the week.

This week I wanted to share two products that I have been using as part of my everyday make up routine for the last month or so. I haven't featured them on MF so I thought this would be a great way to kick my first EE post. Both of these products I use to prime my skin before I apply my foundation (etc.) I find they help in evening out the tone and texture of my skin. Also I find they leave my skin looking radiant, brighter and generally a lot healthier. 


Shu Uemura  - Stage Performance Instant Glow 

If you've watched any of my make up tutorials on YouTube you will probably recognise this product as I use it pretty much all the time. The Stage Performance Instant Glow is a product that can be used alone, in place of a moisturiser or as a primer as I like to. I absolutely adore the texture it's quite creamy and feels so moisturising once on. It has crushed pearls in it so it instantly adds luminosity and radiance to the skin. I generally find that the Stage Performance smooths out my skin, prolongs the wear of my make up and acts as a good base allowing me to flawlessly apply foundation. If I don't use this product I definitely notice a difference to my make up. 

By Terry - Eclat de Teint 'Halogen Apricot'

 This product I have incorporated into priming my routine quite recently and I use this specifically under my eyes. I have a tendency to get quite bad dark circles (I blame lack of sleep!) so I have been using this colour corrector just to add brightness under the eyes - For me? It works wonders! Halogen Apricot is a shade that will work with most skin tones and it instantly corrects dark circles and blemishes. The texture is lightweight and I adore the gorgeous light reflective finish. Another great thing is that the brush applicator makes this product easy to use and ideal to pop in your make up bag on the go! 

So there you have it, two of my Everyday Essentials - I can't prime my skin without these two! At the moment they are my saviours! If you want to see how I use these two products then be sure to check out some of my recent make up tutorials! 

Have any of you tried any of these? What do you think of my EE feature? Will you be back to read next Sunday?

Speak Soon! 
Lots of Love
