Hello friends + happy friday! we made it through our week back to work after Labor Day. Just wait till next week, a full 5 days. UGH. Anyway, I know it's still summer and all but I'm fixing to change up my make up routine for the upcoming season. A few months ago, I asked for your help on summer make up and primers... now I'm looking for help with the Fall routine!
So let's look at my current routine.
So there you have it. Very simple, but it's time to move on! I'm almost done with my BB cream and want to finish it up before the Fall hits us. Lately, I've been all flakes galore so I'm hesitant to wear foundation but I need coverage! I only use a tad of the Bare Minerals foundation to fill in what the BB cream missed, but sometimes, perhaps I'm going to overboard, or it's the brush, or maybe it's just really me. But it's leaving residue on my forehead and I'm getting pissed. I don't really know how to use the different types of brushes, and I definately don't follow the 'less is more' rule. I need to change this. So yesterday, Amanda suggested the Bare Minerals Exfoliating cleanser to help with the flakes. But Valerie, over the summer, had suggested the Philosphy brand Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash. Ahh, decisions, decisions! What kind of exfoliator do you use? Do you use it on the daily or only a few times a week?
So, I've been using ELF tone-correcting primer (the green one) but I'm finding that I'm running out QUICK. It's only $6.99 so there really probably isn't that much in it to begin with. I love that it's so cheap, and it works pretty decently. I have tried Magiclumi Primer but I'm not totally digging the shimmery finish it leaves on my skin. So help me out. Primers, what is your go-to primer? I have to move on from Elf. They did me well but I'm just not completely satisfied.
Foundation: Obviously I've been VERY satisfied with the Magic BB Cream. It really works great! But I'm getting pale now, my tan is non-existent. I need some more coverage. Any suggestions?
How about this. Can someone just do a blog post on Fall Make up? That'd be great! But really, can someone please answer my questions in bold?? I have a coupon and points at Ulta to use that expire tomorrow. Thanks everyone!
