My first step is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, because if I forget it, my shadows will crease within the first hour. Next, I apply the Victoria Secret Fresh Face Brightening Cream Gel along my cheekbones and a bit under the eyes before my foundation for an extra highlighting, skin brightening step. It feels nice and hydrating when applying and really brightens up your complexion. Then, foundation. I have been using the Wet 'n Wild Coverall Foundation. It's an amazing drugstore steal at $4. I apply it with a BeautyBlender. I love this little sponge, it makes blending so fast and easy and provides even, natural coverage. Finally, I use the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla under my eyes and along my nose, using the BeautyBlender to blend it out. If I know I will be doing a darker eye look, I will apply this after my shadows to make avoid any fallout.
With the winter weather, I haven't been needing to use any primers or powders, but when I need to guarantee that my foundation will last perfectly, I'll use the elf Mineral Infused Primer, your typical silicone feeling primer, as a first step and an Urban Decay Setting Spray as a final step to set my makeup. I like all the different variations, currently I am using Deslick. I didn't use these two products in the pictures below.
What's your foundation routine?
