Welcome to another installment of my weekly Beauty Edit! I am very passionate about no-makeup makeup, and I love trying out new tinted moisturizers and sheer foundations. In fact, I rarely wear medium or full coverage foundations because I like seeing skin.
You read that right, I like to see my skin! Believe it or not, I actually like the way my skin looks–freckles and all–which is a rare thing in the world of beauty bloggers and vloggers. I spend a lot of time taking care of my face with a relatively rigorous nighttime routine (I use about 10 different products and follow a somewhat Korean skincare regime,) so that I can have pretty skin… so that I don’t have to cover it up. A simple concept that I think a lot of people forget.
Right now, I have 5 awesome face products that I have been using in rotation. I have them listed all below along with my reviews!
There is something so practical about a foundation stick! This one goes on with a smooth matte finish, and I typically only use it in my problem areas instead of all over. I use it to cover the under-eye area, around and down the nose, chin, and to smooth out any redness. I also like to use 310 Bisque C as a bronzer / contour stick!
Although this product is advertised as a full coverage, I like to dilute it down with a little bit of oil to make it into a thinner consistency. Tarte products match my skin tone to a tee, which is why I am such a big fan of this product! And it really does last all day, so I never have to worry about re-applying.
Hands down my favorite face product. This gives me the most beautiful, glowy flush. It is my secret weapon and I always get a compliment when I have it on. Seriously, it makes me look like J.Lo. It only comes in one shade, which miraculously works for me! There is a Black Label version of the same product that works with darker complexions.
This product does it all, while providing me with a healthy, luminous glow. It’s a 10 in 1 product, so it treats, firms, protects, primes, covers… it really does it all. And it’s a mouse that goes on so silky smooth!
This was one of the first BB creams I started using, and it’s still a favorite all these years later. It’s easy to put on and great when I’m in a rush because I know it will always look good. It’s the ideal BB cream to wear everyday, and even on days when I don’t leave the house!
