The Flawless Foundation Routine!
Out of all the tutorials, I feel ‘the flawless foundation routine’ is the one you should focus on, until you have really nailed the process. Your foundation routine should be flawless, because this is the canvas for everything. If your makeup is off, who cares what the outfit is or what the hair is doing. Presenting a professional looking makeup application is key. SO, let’s get to it.
If I take the time to actually do my makeup and get ready for the day (which feels like a true gift when it happens) I make it count. I want to make sure that my efforts do not go to waste after only a few hours into the day, and that is why I take my ‘prep’ game and makeup application steps seriously, because I know that this look is going to last me long beyond when I’m ready to hit the sack after a long humid day in Austin, Texas.
In this video I show you how to properly prep the face with the correct products to ensure proper moisture levels and create a protective layer to keep your skin glowing and youthful through out the day. My secret is the MintPear Collagen Serum, that is quickly becoming the nations top selling serum. No more makeup creases in those fine lines and no more blemishes or acne showing up surprisingly.
You only get one face, so protect it. I opt for foundation containing SPF, because I know that aging is caused by the sun. A whopping 95% of aging, to be exact. Keep that in mind while you are shopping for your next foundation/makeup.
Less is more, you’ll notice in this tutorial, I will show you the exact amount of makeup to apply. A common mistake for applying makeup is when you try to use too much. Always remember you can ‘add’ if you need, but you don’t want to have to wash your entire face when you put on too much. Avoid looking cakey and creases by applying the correct amount of foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush and powder.
It may sound like a lot, but if layered correctly, you’ll just look flawless and no one will be able to tell you have $400 worth of products on your face. Excuse me #iwokeuplikethis #whyyouevenask #thenerve Get it girl. Own it. Work it. You got this.
STEP ONE: Use the Collagen Serum as a foundation primer – we just can’t keep it in stock, and it’s pretty obvious as to why.
STEP TWO: DO NOT forget about your Nourishing Under Eye Creme. This is the only part of the face Dr’s haven’t figured out how to fix aging.
STEP THREE: Moisturizer. Even if your skin is oily, acne-prone or you live in a city like Austin, where it’s humid as hell, I don’t care. You need to be using a well balanced moisturizer to control your oil production and nourish your skin.
STEP FOUR: Apply your foundation with our Flat Top Kabuki. There is not a better way to get an even coverage for an airbrushed foundation routine. “You will never use another brush” “The only brush I’ve used everyday since the day I got it.”
STEP FIVE: Set with your translucent setting powder using the correct Makeup Brush. This is such an important part, and it will really keep your foundation in place all day. If you have dry skin, as long as you are completing the previous steps, this won’t dry your skin, and if you have oily skin, this will help control the oil production through out the day.
