It’s been a while since I last spoke about makeup and makeup routines so here we go!
I always start with a clean and moisturised face. I mainly go for a medium coverage on the skin but full coverage on my ‘problem areas’ which tends to be the area under my eyes.
The primer that I’ve been using lately is The Body Shop Instablur All-In-One Perfecter, Im not really that impressed by this one and Im just trying to get done with it tbh. I tried a sample of the benefit porefessional and I really liked it, its quite on the pricey end though so I dont know if I would actually buy the full product. It is only a primer after all!
Moving onto foundation, the one I’ve been using for a while now is the L’Oreal True Match foundation. I really really really like this foundation. I love foundation in general, but I have some EXTRA love for this specific one. Just as it promises, it is in fact really blendable and it matches the texture of my skin perfectly. It does not feel like I’m wearing makeup at all.
I use the shade D7-W7 Golden Amber, it is a tad bit too dark for me but I quite like it. This is a drugstore brand, and for AED 99 I would consider it being a tad bit steep – pricewise. But the product itself I really like.
I usually spread 1 pump all around my face, and blend it away with my favorite brush in the world – Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, blends like a dreaaamm!
Moving onto concealer now, I use two different products and as you can see the shades are very, very different. I start out with the MAC Pro Long-wear Concealer in the shade NW35 and blend it out with a damp Real Techniques Sponge – I didn’t post a picture of it because it looks super, super gross! After blending the MAC concealer in I go over it with the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in the shade Warm Medium blending it out with a zoeva face brush. The second concealer is just for some brightening up!
And lastly, powder to set and blend everything together. I use the Sephora Mineral Powder Foundation to set and blend the concealer together, and the Sephora Smoothing and Brightening Powder for the rest of the face.
So thats pretty much my base/foundation routine minus the bronzer and blusher. I MIGHT just make a video of my everyday makeup routine where I would use all these products on my face, might.
