My Current Foundation Routine #2

Wednesday, 22 April 2015



It's Spring, friends and with new makeup purchases and new skin needs comes a new foundation routine. When doing my tutorials here, I found that it was getting very repetitive to type out the foundation part because it rarely changed. I decided that I would create this post so that I can link it back and not take twenty minutes typing it up in every post.

I like to prime my skin even after moisturising as I feel that it gives my skin some extra help and it needs all the help that it can get to be honest. At the moment I have been loving L'Oreal's Infallible Mattifying Primer. It's a gel like primer that reminds me of Maybelline's Baby Skin Pore Erase Primer but not as thick. I rub this over my skin using my fingers and then press it in at my under eye area. This creates such a smooth surface for my foundation.

I apply my foundation before concealer as I may not need concealer depending on the coverage. My foundation of choice lately has been L'Oreal's Infallible Foundation. I have to mix Porcelain and Vanilla together in a strange concoction to get my ideal shade. It's a two pumps of Porcelain and a half pump of Vanilla kind of formula. I mix them together on the back of my hand and dot it over my skin before buffing it in with my Sigma F80 Flat Topped Kabuki brush.

To conceal my undereye area and blemishes, I reach for Maybelline's Fit Me Concealer in the shade 15 Light. The 15 shade is more pink toned than 10-Light which is a very warm one. That looks orange on me. I apply this and then blend it in with any brush I feel like using at the time; I usually lift my Real Techniques Setting Brush or the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush if the setting brush is dirty. To blend out, I don't swipe it, I use patting motions.

I like to conceal and highlight and for that, I use Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer in the shade, Fair. I draw a triangle shape under my eye with a corner heading more towards my temple. I also apply a little between my eyebrows. Then using the opposite side of the brush that I used with the previous concealer, I blend it out and I use patting motions with this too, edging it towards my temple to give my eyes a lift.








S E T
To set everything, I use Bourjois' Healthy Balance powder in the shade, Vanilla. I use my Real Techniques Contour Brush to set my concealer and then I use the Powder Brush from Real Techniques to set everywhere else.




I do look creepy without my eye makeup, blush, bronzer or lip product on but that's my foundation routine.
