I love me some skin care. I started paying attention to my skin when I was in my 30s and now that I’m 40 so far so good. When you are ready to dress up and go out for date night by putting on that foundation, I think it’s then that you see how your skincare regimine has worked to date. So, I feel like it starts there and then moves to how your make up sits on your skin.
Foundation can be confusing. I’ve found a little combination that has worked for me. People have asked me what I use so thought it might be helpful to share. It is super quick with 3 steps and works.
I always start w/ a concealer and the best out there is Mac’s Prolongwear Concealer. Tap that on under your eyes and down the sides of your nose. It’s super thick and great coverage.
Best foundation product I’ve ever used is Dior Nude Air. Best foundation. It’s light, comes with a dropper and most importantly, it does not sit in lines or wrinkles.
I start with a few drop of Dior Nude Air in my palm and then add a few drop off a primer oil. I like Smashbox Primer Oil, but there are others out there (cred: Rachie).
The reason I use this is because if you have combination skin like me you have places that you are more dry. I think keeping moisture in your face as you get older is so important. When my skin is dry, it looks more wrinkled and dull.
So, I have these two products in my palm and then i tap it onto my face. I then take that chunky Morphe brush that you see in the picture above. I love this brush! I found it from Jacklyn Hill’s make up tutorials on YouTube. It’s a buffer that is meant to apply foundation and it makes the biggest difference!
And it’s $14 bucks!
With the liquid concealer and oil on your race, buff them into your skin (along w/ your concealer) in small circles until completely blended. I feel like these 3 products have changed the look of my skin. I’m guessing it’s mostly because of the moisture component.
