THIS MAKEUP TRICK WILL BLOW YOUR MIND...

It goes against everything we have ever been taught about makeup application. I came across a you tube video of a makeup artist from London. He did a tutorial on this and I couldn't wait to try it. No way did I think it would work but sure enough.. flawless skin that stayed all day! You ready for it? (sorry about the lighting, it was very orangey in the bathroom I was in)

Putting powder on your face BEFORE liquid foundation! Absurd right? Makes no sense! Guess what guys? It works!!! It hides any redness or pores and leaves a very matte finish. If you are oilier you will love this! You will not need to reapply powder throughout the day. I wore it the other day and I was told my skin looked airbrushed and perfect.

Here is how to do it:

Start off by using your moisturizer and then prime your face as normal. You know how I feel about primers so if you're not using one, go out and get it now. I use this one right now by Cover FX and Im really loving it.

Then apply a loose powder. I use Smashbox Halo in light/Medium but you can also use a translucent powder.

After your powder apply your liquid foundation with your fingers. You will use a lot less foundation too.

I also like to add some shimmer for dewiness and I accomplish this by using Armani's Fluid Sheer Then continue with your regular makeup. I then use my naked flushed palette that includes a bronzer, highlighter and  blush.
