Let's talk makeup!
Before we get started, it's important to remember that makeup preferences can vary greatly from person to person. Even if you and I have the same skin tone and skin type, a product that works wonderfully for me may not work as well for you. Just a little disclaimer!
The first step to a flawless face is skincare and prep. Proper skincare is absolutely essential, so please don't ignore this step! After cleansing and moisturizing, it's prime time! There are a ton of primers out there, but the one I currently use is NYX Studio Perfect Primer in clear. It's $12.99 at Ulta where they often run sales on their NYX products, plus you can always find an Ulta coupon to use on top of any sales.
Moving on to foundation!
For a lightweight, natural look, I have two favorites! Urban Decay's Naked Skin is amazing! It provides great coverage while looking natural and feeling like you're barely wearing any foundation.
For a similar, budget-friendly option, try Loreal True Match Lumi. This is one of my go-to foundations!
For a medium to full coverage foundation, I also have two favorites! Estee Lauder Double Wear provides amazing, buildable coverage without looking heavy or cakey.
For a budget-friendly option, try Flower's About Face Foundation. This is only available at Walmart, but has quickly become a new favorite of mine!
Finally, we'll end today with my favorite brush to use for foundation application, the Expert Face Brush by Real Techniques.
Hopefully this overload of information is helpful! Next time, we'll talk concealer tricks, brushes, and powder. If you all have any questions, just let me know!
