Hello my pretty berries,
This is my first ever foundation routine to put up on my blog and I am so excited to be doing this. I am in no way a professional make-up artist but this is the method and steps that I take to put on my foundation. I think it works well and I have been doing the same routine for a while although I do like to change it up once in a while depending on my skin and my mood.
I hope you all enjoy this post and let me know what you would like to see me post next. Also, here is a link to my Youtube Channel where I did show exactly how I did my Foundation Routine so you can check that out as well!
The very first thing I do is apply a face primer and right now I am obsessing with the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. It covers my pores and smoothes the entire face which creates this perfect canvas to work with. I focus the product mainly on the centre of my face and work my way outwards while slightly pressing the product on my face rather than wiping.
Next, I take my foundation and right now I’m using the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in the shade 4.0. It claims to be a weightless ultra definition liquid make-up which is pretty accurate. It’s the perfect match for me at the moment and it doesn’t dry out my face. The foundation has a dewy finish which I love since I have very dry skin and I can use the extra moisture and glow from the foundation. Nobody wants to look dull! Let me know if you would like to see a more in-depth review of this product and I will go ahead and do that=)
Going forward, I typically use a stippling brush for my foundation for a lighter application but I sometimes use a wet sponge that I bought from Quo Cosmetics (it’s kind of like the beauty blender). It really depends on how I feel that day. Today, I used the Quo Foundation Sponge to apply my foundation.
At this point, I conceal my blemishes and under eye area. For that, I have been using the Revlon Blemish Concealer in the shade light/medium Then, I continue to use my Urban Decay Concealer stick in the shade “FBI” for the blemishes, dark spots or old scars. As for my under eyes, I use my NYX Full coverage concealer and lightly pat it under my dark circles =( blehh
Once everything is even then I take a translucent powder and the one I have been using lately is the ELF HD Powder. I use fluffy brush that I got from Icing and lightly pat it all over my face and neck. I swear this stuff keeps me shine free for hours without clinging on any of my dry areas.
Then, I will finish up the rest of my face: bronzer,blush,etc..
The very last thing that I do is use a facial spray to set everything in place. I am loving the Urban Decay All Nighter Make-up setting spray. Remember to keep it at least 10 inches away from your face to properly diffuse the product and allow it to fully dry before touching your face because that may ruin your make-up.
That is it for me today my pretty berries! Don’t forget to comment and like =) I will see you on my next blog post and don’t forget to visit my Youtube Channel as well:
