Hello everyone and happy beginning of September!
Now that it’s Monday it’s time for another post of the #TeenBlogSeries. You can find my first post here.
This week me and every other blogger who took part are going to show you the best foundation and brow routine for teens! I’ve used makeup seriously for about two and half years now so I clearly can’t tell what suits or is the best for everyone but I’m going to tell you what I find good for my skin and how I do my foundation and eyebrows.
I have a combination skin, it can get pretty oily in the summer but in the winter when it gets colder it can be extremely dry. For me these products have worked every season. Hope you find this post helpful!
Concealing the under eye circles
I start off by concealing the area under my eyes with the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer. I put the colours fair (1) and warm medium (3) on the back of my hand and mix them together with the Real Techniques Detailer brush that comes with the core collection. I then use the same brush to apply it under my eyes and pat the concealer in with my fingers. The reason I’m mixing these two colours is that the number 3 is too dark and number 1 too light. Also I find the colour cool medium (2) too red for my skin so I really don’t want to use it but as I like to use this concealer I think mixing really is the best – and probably only – option.
Blemishes and spots covered
Using the Real Techniques Foundation brush the next step is to conceal any little spot and blemish I find. To do this I’m using either the Rimmel London Wake Me Up concealer in 010 Ivory or the Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer in 10. Even though the brush is meant for foundation I think it does a lot better work with concealer and I like to use brushes on different thinks. Also people are different so what works for others maybe isn’t the best for you.
Setting the concealers
Next thing I like to do is to set the concealer on place especially under the eyes. For this I use the cute pink Real Techniques Setting brush and Lumene Mineral Loose Powder and just pat the powder on top of the concealer. The powder is also translucent and very light.
Even out the skin with foundation
For foundation I use the Maybelline New York Fit Me foundation in 105. I don’t always use concealer and foundation at the same time but when Autumn begins and tan starts to fade my skin can look very unevenly coloured on some days and foundation really helps it not to. I apply it with the Real Techniques Buffing brush which is also from the core collection as the detailer brush. I pump the foundation on the back of my hand, use the brush to pat it all over my face and then just blend, blend and blend.
Set it all together
To set it all in and make my skin even more even I use the Lumene Matt Powder Foundation in 01 Cream Beige and take the Real Techniques Powder brush to apply it. If you have a lot of blemishes make sure to dab the powder in rather than swiping it all over your face. Then all your hard work won’t be gone and the concealer will stay in place.
Before moving on to the eyebrows I use the YSL Touche Éclat in 2 I conceal my under eye circles a bit more and brighten up my face. I pat it all in with my fingers.
Bringing the eyebrows alive
With the Maybelline New York Master shape brow pencil in Soft Brown I gently fill my brows following their natural shape. I then brush through them with the brush at the end of the pencil making sure there’s not too much product. I then blend it in with the Real Techniques Brow brush. When you’re buying a brow pencil remember to not to buy a colour that’s too dark. For me the Soft Brown looked very light at first but it comes out so much darker when it’s applied so try it on the back of your hand before buying or ask for a professional’s help!
Well didn’t this turn out quite long… Whoops… Hope you enjoyed!
