my ride or dies. I mix it up & mix and match for different occasions.
BUT FIRST, let’s talk primer. It depends what look I’m going for, but I usually switch off between these two primers. I use the Charlotte Tilbury Youth Glow usually in the daytime and when I want a summery, glowy look. The Dermalogica hydrablur primer is quickly my new favorite makeup product. The name suits it perfectly– it makes your skin look very matte and it ”blurs” your pores and fine lines, which I use for photoshoots and my night time looks.
SO, let’s get into what I actually use for what, shall we?
On my DRESSED UP DAYS (meetings, events, photoshoots) I use a mix of my Dior foundation and the Bare Minerals tinted moisturizer. I squeeze them both on my hand and blend with the beauty blender. It’s perfect for the daytime because using half tinted moisturizer doesn’t make you feel like you’re wearing heavy foundation, but you still get the coverage. Then I do a light brush of my Laura Mercier sheer candleglow powder (after concealer) to put a nice finishing touch on it.
On my NORMAL DAYS [most days] (running errands, out & about, working,) I use the tinted moisturizer. If I happen to need extra help that day, I’ll add in a little bit of the Tom Ford foundation.
On my GOING OUT NIGHTS I use mostly my Dior foundation with a tiny bit of my Bare Minerals tinted moisturizer (just a tad). Then I use concealer (should I do a post on my concealers too?) and follow with the Laura Mercier powder.
