A La Carte Skin Veil Skin Perfector & Primer!









Every time I try a new A La Carte product I realise I'm falling in love with this brand... A brand I knew nothing about until recently is rather impressing with the variety of products I haven't seen in other brands... First time I saw this product was on Ruth's [amodelrecommends] YouTube chanel, I think in one of her old videos she recorded while she was in New York for a shoot... It's a primer for all skin types, so I decided to give it a go... The first time I used it with my RealTechniques Buffing Brush I didn't get great results, but that's because I applied more than I should have... 

Today I decided to give it another go and this time use a lot less product and apply it with the sponge that came with it...That made all the difference!! Sometimes you think brushes are the way to go with everything, but really you just need to find a better way of applying a product if it doesn't work with a brush before you give up on it! So now I really like the Skin Veil, the texture glides beautifully over the skin giving you a perfect base! But like I said I found that on my combo/oily skin the tiniest amount was enough... 

If you have a great skin than you can just leave it at that as it has a tint to it... Skin Veil comes in different shades, this one is Vanilla, which is great for medium skin-tone... Before I apply my foundation I generally wait a few minutes to make sure the base settles well... It is suitable for most skin types, it may not last very well on very oily skin but I'd definitely recommend it for dehydrated, normal, combo, and combo/oily skin type...
