My foundation routine … for now!

Okay so a good foundation is something that I constantly find myself searching for. I get into a routine that I like for a month or two, and then I feel like somethings missing and i switch things up. I feel like a lot of us get stuck in a “makeup rut” I like to call it, and we get use to doing the same thing everyday, and sometimes its just easier that way. So this is my everyday foundation routine … for now!

First I start by washing my face, starting with a clean slate is always best. Then I use moisturizer with an SPF in it. One of my favorites is Olay Complete All Day Moisture Lotion UV Defense. I have normal to dry skin so I like to make sure I get every inch of my face, and neck really well. Before applying anything else i let it sit for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Then I use my Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream. Its more like a tinted moisturizer then a B.B. cream it works for me almost like a primer. I blend this all over my face with my fingers. I feel like your finger work best because the warmth of your hands help “melt” it and work it into your skin. I let the B.B cream sit for about 3 or 4 minutes before applying anything else. Then I like to use my Beauty Blender, and my Mac Studio Sculpt foundation in NW20. I apply a small dime size amounts all over my face and with the beauty blender I blend it out. Next I use my Maybelline Fit me concealer in fair under my eyes, and any dark spots or breakouts.

Last I apply my Raw Minerals foundation in Light 1 over the concealer under my eyes. This helps it stay longer. Then I use my Revlon Colorstay Aqua Mineral Makeup in light all over with my E.L.F Studio powder brush all over in more of a blotting motion, rather then a sweeping motion. Once i cover my whole face with powder, I lightly sweep over my entire face with the powder brush to get off any excess powder. I finish with a few sprays of E.L.F makeup mist and set setting spray.

This routine is medium to full coverage. I love my MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation it is great for people with dry skin. With this routine I don’t have to worry about looking cakey an it also last all day and I don’t have to worry about my makeup sweating away.

What are some of you favorite foundations? Do you have an everyday foundation routine? What moisturizers are you loving?
