This serum seems to have some great benefits, like hydrating the skin and acting as a primer for makeup.
Applying a few drops of this serum not only hydrates your skin but also helps your makeup last longer by preventing it from being absorbed into your skin. Additionally, it gives your skin a healthy glow, making your foundation look more natural and skin-like.
This helps protect your skin from dehydration and also allows makeup to blend smoothly. What's even better is that this moisturizer is suitable for all skin types, whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin. It's versatile and can help moisturize your skin effectively.
Finding the perfect foundation can be quite a challenge, but I've discovered one that I believe is excellent for all skin tones and types: the Revlon ColorStay Foundation. They offer a wide range of shades to match various skin tones, including options for combination and oily skin. The one I personally use is designed for normal to dry skin, which matches my skin type perfectly.
I use the Nyx Can't Stop Won't Stop concealer in the shade Cappuccino. I apply it precisely where I need it, which is typically around the inner corners of my eyes, where I may have a bit of discoloration, and also on the outer corners. Additionally, I like to dab a small amount on my forehead to even out that area and a bit on my chin.
It's worth noting that this concealer dries quite quickly, so I make sure to blend it almost immediately after applying. This ensures a smooth and flawless finish.
If you want to create a bright under-eye look, I recommend using another concealer or even the same one but in a different shade. For this purpose, I use the Black Opal Brightening Concealer in the shade Latte. This concealer is specifically designed to brighten the skin.
When using a brightening concealer like this, it's essential to apply a small amount because the goal is to create brightness. I typically use a beauty sponge to blend it out, being careful not to overdo it to maintain a natural look.
I generally prefer using cream blushes because they tend to be highly pigmented when you find the right one, and they also have better staying power on the skin. One cream blush that I would recommend is the Nyx Blush Stick, which comes in two different shades in one and is also quite affordable.
When applying cream blush, I opt for a dense brush because it helps to pack on the pigment effectively. However, I don't apply the blush directly to my skin. Instead, I load the brush with the blush and then gently apply it. I find that this method provides a softer and more natural finish.
I also like to use the Milani Cheek Kiss Liquid Blush, although it's marketed as both a blush and a highlighter. I usually use it as a highlighter because it's a bit too light for my skin tone. The shade I prefer is 05 Luminoso, which happens to be my favorite highlighter shade from Milani.
For application, I follow a similar technique as I do with cream blush. Instead of applying it directly to my skin, I apply it to the back of my hand and then use my brush or fingers to blend it onto my skin. This approach helps me achieve a more natural and controlled highlight.
I start with the Wet and Wild Photo Focus Setting Powder. It's a translucent setting powder, which means it's very natural-looking on the skin. This powder is particularly beginner-friendly because it doesn't create excess powder residue under the eyes and feels comfortable even if you happen to apply a bit too much.
Another important step in my makeup routine is using a finishing powder. This step is particularly helpful for people who have skin texture concerns, such as wrinkles, acne, or discoloration, as it helps to smoothen the skin and create a flawless finish.
I recommend the Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder for this purpose. I personally use the shade Deep, but it's essential to choose a shade that matches your concealer shade.
When applying the finishing powder, I follow a similar technique as with the setting powder. I ensure there are no clumps, and I focus this powder precisely where I have texture concerns.
I absolutely love the Essence Super Fine Eyeliner because it not only comes at a budget-friendly price but also delivers excellent results. This eyeliner boasts a fine felt tip that provides rich pigmentation, making it a go-to choice for a captivating eyeliner look.
One of the standout features is its beginner-friendly design, making it easy to use. To complete my eye makeup, I simply outline the outer and inner corners of my eyes and create a winged look.
I prefer using a beauty sponge to blend this foundation. Specifically, I use one from Elf Cosmetics, which is not only affordable but also does an excellent job of blending all my complexion products seamlessly. If you haven't tried a beauty sponge before, I highly recommend giving it a shot. However, if a beauty sponge isn't your go-to tool, I suggest using a dense brush as an alternative.
