April Favorites 2018
I haven't been happy with my old foundation routine so in April I changed everything! I found my last foundation color wasn't matching me right, there was dry patches clinging and peeling during the day, my pores seemed to be enlarged...it just looked overall gross. So I decided to start from scratch - these are my April favorites and my new foundation routine.
Pixi Rose Flash Balm - This was a very interesting product because it has multiple purposes. It claims to be a 3-1 moisturizer+primer+mask. I've been using it as a primer and it is VERY hydrating. My skin has been so dry and gross which has been affecting how my makeup looks. This has been wonderful in hydrating my skin and preping my face for makeup. LOVE LOVE LOVE
NYX Pore Filler - Normally enlarged pores aren't an issue I struggle with. But for whatever reason my skin has decided to go crazy this last month and my pores around my nose has been an issue. My makeup doesn't sit right during the day and just looks blah. I use this filler in around my nose area and it just blurs all those imperfections you don't want seeping through. Works great with the Pixi Rose Flash Balm.
Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Medium Coverage Foundation - I haven't changed my foundation in a while so I didn't know where to start. I did a ton of research and came across this Dermablend foundation. I find that with my dry & pale skin it's hard to track down a foundation that truly works for me. I constantly struggle with color matching or the foundation being too matte or being too dry or moving around. This is a no fuss foundation. I put it on in the morning and I don't have to touch my face throughout the day.....yet it doesn't dry out my skin or cling to dry patches. It works amazing with the two primers I've been using and the color matches me! I use the lightest shade Linen 0C. This covers all my imperfections and uneven skin tone yet it's very skin like and still lets my freckles show through. It has an in between look of makeup and skin that I find very flattering.
Overall I have been extremely happy with this new trio foundation routine.
