My Foundation Application Routine

Hey all!  It's been forever since I've uploaded a video tutorial, but since I have a little time this week, I've been working on a few how-tos.  Today I'm going to share a super-quick vid on how I go about my everyday foundation routine.  This is one of the most essential steps towards makeup application, in my opinion.  If you've got a good foundation, everything else falls nicely into place. :)

From bare-faced to foundation to full hair and makeup!

Off topic, but I kind of surprised myself with how different I look bare compared with full makeup and hair.  What a transformation, right?  I feel a little more confident once I've "put on my face", however I'm grateful that my husband prefers how I look without it.  Lol!

Anyways, here's the video!  Hope some of you find it helpful. :D

Products used:

1. ELF Essential Foundation Brush
2. CG Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer
3. Sheer Cover Concealer Duo
4. ELF Studio Kabuki Brush
5. MAC Studio Fix


  1. The powder really makes a difference! Your face was less shiny after you applied it!

    Love your haaair!!! It's beautiful! I'm in that awkward stage where my bangs are trying to grow out... They too long to be bangs, but too short for me to be able to push them aside... So awkward!!!

    Have a nice weekend, Cat! <3

    1. You know, I almost think that C3 is a little too light for me. I might exchange it for C4.

      It's funny that you should mention hair! I think I was working on the hair tutorial while you were possibly commenting, lol!

      Hope you're having a great weekend too! xoxo

  2. i also feel more confident when i have some make up on my face >.<" but i tend to put more and more to cover spots =.= but i know that ppl will think that i have too much make up on my face

    1. Hi Elisa! I totally know how you feel. You're so naturally pretty in your pictures, I can't imagine anyone thinking that you're overdoing your makeup! :D

  3. You're pretty, with and without the make up =)
    I think you're also inspirational, you're one of the reasons I just started my own blog =) ( I wanted to comment with my wordpress account, so you can check the blog if you want, but it looks like that's failing.)

    1. Aw, thanks Nicole! You totally made my day! I'll definitely check out your blog! Have a fab weekend! :D
