I've blogged every day on February, except yesterday. Why I didn't do it yesterday? Oh well...I realized it would be my 100 post and I wanted to be something special, but I was having in mind only reviews... That being said, today the idea hit me: my foundation routine for covering up my acne. Here is a before and after picture, so if you want to know what I did....
|*excuse the funny bare face|
I used just 1 foundation, 2 concealers a translucent powder and only 2 brushes.
I started with a clean moisturized face....I have somehow oily face, but moisturizing is a must for me and makes a real difference on how my makeup applies. Tip: Never skip moisturizer!
Step 1: I put 2 pumps of my Bourjois Flower Perfection foundation (shade 51 Light Vanilla) on the back of my hand and then I applied (and blended) it all over my face using Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. I start on the middle of my face, working my way outwards (like everyone?!).
Step 2: Though the Bourjois foundation can be built up till full coverage I don't enjoy caking up my face so I followed up with to concealers ( Garnier Roll- On Anti- dark circles for my under eye area and Lumene Natural Code 2 in 1Spot Delete Cover for my acne) which I blended out with with my fingers. Note to myself: always use the Lumene concealer under your foundation! It is to yellow for you!
I was in a hurry when I was doing my make up today so I forgot to cover my forehead pimples with concealer. Ooops!
Step 3: I applied theBalm Sexy Mama Translucent Power with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush and ....Voilà!
|*not my best angle, but bare with me|
Of course I applied blush afterwords, but I didn't have time to make a picture.
For me, it is a quite big different between before and after and I will stick with this till I find something better or till I get clear face.
Acne doesn't define me as a person and I don't mind going out without makeup, but some days I just want to forget it's there and I want to look more polished.
What is your foundation routine?
