My Makeup {Foundation & Concealer}

I love reading what products and makeup other people use. So I decided to do a series of posts on what makeup I wear and also to get suggestions for new products to try! First off, I'm talking about foundation and concealer. I have a love/hate relationship with these products because I wish my skin was clear enough and had zero dark circles under my eyes, BUT I'm so grateful for products like these to make my skin appear flawless!

Mary Kay Primer- I apply this after my moisturizer. It makes my skin so smooth, fills in my pores, and makes a good canvas for my makeup.
Covergirl BB Cream- shade: 810. I apply this right after the primer. It's basically a tinted moisturizer and has been great for the summer time because it's so lightweight. 

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous- shade: Fair. This concealer is okay. I just feel like it's a little runny and with the humidity, it tends to move. I like the applicator wand because it makes it really easy to apply.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer- shade: NC15. This concealer has awesome coverage and stays on ALL day! I watched a YouTube video on highlighting and concealing with this product, so that's why I got it. I think if I found a better foundation to go with it, I would really love it!

bareMinerals SPF Eye Brightener- shade: Well Rested. This is setting powder for under eye concealer and it is great! It really does make you look "well rested." I highly recommend it!

bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation- shade: fair. I apply this powder over the BB cream listed above. It has good coverage and is lightweight.

What foundation and concealer are you currently using? Would you recommend it? I am running low on my foundation and would love suggestions for lightweight, good coverage ones!

  1. I love bare minerals!! I am curious about that BB cream!!

    1. The BB cream works well for light coverage! It was pretty inexpensive so you should try it:)

  2. The best BB Cream I have tried is by Tarte. It is light but it has great coverage. Right now I am using a foundation by Laura Gella, so far I love it.

  3. I wear MAC studio fix foundation in C3.5. I really like it and highly recommend it. It's light but covers well.
    I also use L'oreal BB cream in medium under my foundation and LOVE it. Some days I wear this as my foundation for a simple look. I too have dark circles under my eyes and love using Benefit erase paste to cover them up. It really works.
    It's fun to get new makeup ideas from others!!! Thanks for your suggestions. I'd like to try your eye brightener!!
