Current Foundation Routine


These are the current products Im using for my daily foundation routine. Make sure you start with a clean and moisturized face.

1. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer- I apply by stippling over my face. This increases the longevity of foundation while minimizing pores and fine lines. Buy Here

2. Dior Airflash Foundation - I use color 300. This is an airbrush foundation so be careful not to spray too close to the hair line, or it will look like you have gray hair! After spraying I stipple the foundation with my beauty blender to make sure its all even. Buy Here

3. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer - I use color NW 25.  I take my Beauty Blender again and apply under my eyes and around my nose, because those are the spots that tend to get red and need correcting. Buy Here

4. MAC Prep + Prime - In color Light Boost. This is a Lighter shade than your foundation, You use this to highlight. I apply in a V shape under my eyes to brighten, Down the bridge of my nose and up into my forehead a bit. This will make the nose appear thinner and more defined, and lastly I apply on my cupids bow. Buy Here

5. MAC Cream Color Base - In color Mid- Tone Sepia. I use this to contour. I apply at the cheek bones in a line and blend out. This will define your face and make it appear slimmer. I also apply at my nose and make a line down on the two sides of my bridge, to also give the appearance of a slimmer/longer nose. Make sure to blend, blend, blend. You don't want to be able to see the dark lines. Buy Here If you don't want to use a cream, I also use my bronzer to contour - Too Faced Bronzer in color Sun Bunny. Buy Here

6. Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder - I use this in the areas I just applied my MAC prep + prime.  This powder will set the makeup. Its in a light yellow, so I like to use a translucent powder for the rest of my face. Buy Here

7. MAC Fix + - Ever since I tried this product I've been obsessed!! I use this after Im done applying all my makeup. I notice after I apply powders the skin looks dry. So this will do the trick! Its gives hydration while setting the makeup and leaving a dewy finish to the skin. Buy Here 

I talked about using a Beauty blender, to apply my Foundation and Concealer. Its amazing, way better than other sponges and you can wash it and reuse it. Buy Here
