I've been reaching for the same products for the majority of 2016 so far, and I've managed to make pretty great use of these products. The Boscia No Pores, No Shine T Zone Treatment is great for creating a flawless base. I quickly apply a primer across my cheeks and nose where I have some visible pores and allow that to dry while I work on my eye makeup. I'm really into primers right now and am eyeing the TooFaced Hangover Primer (edit: totally bought this in a stress-shopping-therapy-session last week) to help achieve that.
My foundation of choice has been the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation - it is a great one and I believe I am *finally* nearing the end of the product. This provides a lightweight base which covers all redness and old scars pretty well. I wear the shade Cashew and it is a perfect match for me. However, the packaging isn't the best, and I won't be repurchasing this until the packaging has changed. I've been sampling NARS Velvet Matte Tint in Alaska and I will finally bite the bullet and pick this one up. (Lol also edit: definitely made a Sephora order for this too.)
I've been applying 3 products to my cheeks/face which may seem overkill, but I'm still getting my makeup done in 10 minutes or less every day. I'm reaching for the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Palette to add some warmth to my cheeks and do an ever so slight amount of contour. Practice makes perfect, right?
I've been popping on Tarte's blush in Exposed on my cheeks basically everyday since I got it and I'm still loving it. Firm favorite, uh yeah - I think yes. And the final step I've been doing everyday has been reaching for my Morphe Fan Brush and my Becca highlighter in Moonstone to dust off some glow onto my cheekbones, temple, and nose bridge. I'm almost certain that I will be able to hit pan on this product by the end of the year (if I don't completely finish it up).
With these products I've been feeling really great in my skin and am loving the somewhat "perfect base" I've created for myself.
What are the top products you reach for to create your "perfect base"?
