It was kind of the challenge to write this post… I’m not really sure why, though, I did manage to somehow to write a presentable text.
Today’s post is also just my usual foundation routine that I’d like to share with you as it only consists of a few products!
Before I apply my makeup I always make sure to cleanse my face with my Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and then moisturise it. That’s already the perfect base for me to apply my foundation on!
The foundation I apply afterwards is the Catrice Cosmetics Nude Illusion Make Up in the shade 010 Nude Ivory which I think will soon be replaced by the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation – as soon as it’s empty, of course! I always just use one pump on the back of my hand and bring it onto my face with a damp makeup sponge and blend that in.
As for concealer I’m using the Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer in the shade 010 Porcelain which gives great coverage and doesn’t crease at all! I apply the concealer under my eyes because I always have dark under-eye circles and to my chronically red nose – Rudolph!
Again, I blend that in with my sponge and make sure to cover all the spots, redness and circles.
Before I apply my powder I always wait a few minutes to make sure that everything has dried as I don’t want my makeup to look cakey throughout the day. The Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in the shade 001 Transparent is my new go-to favourite powder and I apply that with a fluffy powder brush onto my forehead, my nose and my chin – basically my t-zone – to prevent my face from looking oily.
Sometimes, when I feel a little lazy and my skin is acting good, I also skip applying foundation and just put some concealer and powder on. It’s not as long lasting but it still gives enough coverage to go food shopping on the weekend or to take the dog out for a walk.
I always go on to my brows and my eye makeup afterwards but I think I will upload my full everyday makeup routine anytime soon if you’d like to read that! 🙂
What’s your favourite foundation, concealer and/or powder at the moment?
