I have recently tested some new skin care products after using the organic and 100% natural brand Sanctum for over 2 years, I think it is now.
And my skin has, even though it should have gotten used to it now, not liked this change in routines. What I have started with is r-Retinoate from Medik8 and 2% BHA Liquid from Paula's Choice - although the latter I have basically stopped with although I think it feels so extremely exciting, but I get so tight-dry in the face that I really have woken up and gone up at night and lubricated me with moisturizer haha.
Anyway, that was not what I was going to talk about haha.
I therefore have (I think that is why in any case) an incredible amount of pimples at the moment. And really hard pretty big too! But instead of thinking it is 100% disturbing, I take the opportunity and use them in a helpful makeup post :)
When I make up acne to get as natural, fresh and durable makeup as possible, I always use a little of several products instead of a lot of few. Then the result will be much more natural and nice, I think. But sometimes, or quite often, you just want to quickly remove everything and get a make-up that is both good-looking, durable, covers all pimples and does not require a quarter in front of the make-up mirror.
Therefore, I now thought to show you today's base that I had today, which with only two products provides full coverage and a sustainable result:
Above you see three before and after pictures in different angles. What difference does it make? :)
- Creamy concealer - gloMinerals Under Eye Concealer (beige)
If you want a concealer that really covers, I recommend a cream concealer. I use it from gloMinerals which is actually adapted to have under the eyes but I also love it on pimples because it is thin in texture and becomes very natural but is still incredibly opaque. It has a light shade and a little darker (+ is available in several shade scales as well, everything from super light to dark skin) and I usually use the lightest under the eyes and then mix a perfect skin tone when I have it on my face. I myself use the shade Beige.
- Mineral Foundation - gloMinerals Pressed Base Foundation (Golden Medium)
Mineral foundation is so flexible to get a quick coverage. Apply thinly where you do not need much coverage at all, and more where you need more coverage. You can dab a lot to build on the foundation and get a comprehensive result, but if you have a concealer underneath as well, you do not need much at all. And in addition to providing a quick coverage, it fixes the concealer at the same time so that it fits better + that you do not need to have powder over that you need with many liquid foundations.
In addition, it nourishes the skin with mineral foundation, it contains few ingredients, allows the skin to breathe and contains green tea that nourishes the skin. It also has spf 18 (a bit depending on how thick you apply).
In other words:
1. Dab on concealer on the blemishes
Finish with foundation, dab on the blemishes and then wrap all over the face.
Surely there will be a big difference? :)
You get quite flat and dull though, so feel free to supplement with conctouring, blush, eyebrows, highlighter and lips for more life in the face :)
Two big thumbs up! Quick and easy :)
