My Everyday Flawless Foundation Routine

My Everyday Flawless Foundation Routine

Hi everyone!! I’ve gotten a ton of questions about what I use on a day-to-day basis for my foundation, so I figured I would go ahead and share a post all about my favorite face products that I use every day! I typically like to go for a more matte look in the fall/winter time, and more of a dewy look in the spring and summer. I prefer keeping things more natural- there’s seriously nothing I hate more than cake face. I pretty much use the same products every time for my foundation routine- sometimes I adventure a little bit and try out some new products, but I always end up coming back to these babies!


Face Primer: Smashbox // Foundation Stick: Anastasia Beverly Hills // Concealer: Amazing Cosmetics // BB Cream: Smashbox // Spot Concealer: Too Faced Cosmetics // Highlighter: Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill // Bronzer: MAC // Brushes (Left to Right) Elf, Real Techniques, Amazon

I have two different products that I alternate between for my base- the Smashbox BB Cream and the Anastasia foundation stick. I find that the foundation stick gives me a little more coverage, but the BB Cream is a lot more breathable and doesn’t look as cake-y. The Smashbox is my absolute favorite in the summer, but I’ll break it out sometimes in the winter if I just want something lighter with less coverage.

I’m not a huge concealer-wearer, but for the days I need a little extra coverage for blemishes that pop up here and there, I use the Born this Way concealer. It works super well for any uninvited guests you may get on your face- it’s okay, we’ve all been there!

My parents blessed me with genes that make me rarely ever get undereye bags, so I never really have the need for an under-eye concealer either. But for the days I got barely any sleep the night before, the Amazing Cosmetics concealer works perfectly for me. If any of you are in the market for a good under-eye concealer, check this one out! I get mine at Ulta, and it’s amazing.

This MAC Bronzer I believe is actually discontinued (I’m sorry!!) but I also love using the Kat Von D Shade & Light contour palette. It works super well for all skin tones, and is so travel-friendly. Those of you who followed me over from The Style Searcher know I’m a die-hard fan of Champagne Pop! I’ve been watching Jaclyn Hill for forever  so obviously I had to hop on this bandwagon. Honestly, though, even if Jaclyn Hill didn’t help create this product, I’d still love it. My holy grail!!

Last but not least, how I apply everything! I use a Beauty Blender for the cream products, but I figured it would be a good idea not to show my super gross foundation-flooded sponge. I’m so overdue to get a new one! I love using the Elf brush on the right for my bronzer. If you haven’t tried out the Elf brushes yet, I seriously recommend it! I’ve washed it plenty of times and it’s pulled through for a good 2-3 years now. A great quality brush for an amazing price!

The Real Techniques brush works great for my under-eye area, and doubles as a highlighting brush. The last brush I use for baking. I rarely ever bake, but when I want to go for a more dramatic, sharp contour, it works like a dream.

I hope this helps you guys out a little! These products are my absolute faves, so I hope you guys love them as much as I do. As always, if you have any questions on the products themselves or how I apply them, shoot me a comment!

    I was asking yourself re random option” of pages for your examinations, …

    if you randomly select from the whole corpus, verdsus from
    the 1000 most prominent (on some metric, eg. google ranking), versus the 1000 earliest, etc.
    exactly how the outcomes would certainly vary.
