Welcome to my Full Coverage Foundation Routine. Did I forget to take a decent thumbnail to put on the front of this video? You betcha, so this picture is pretty much as good as it’s going to get 🙂
My full coverage foundation routine doesn’t specifically rely on the foundation. As I explain more about in the video, I use a decent coverage foundation, but I rely on the concealer then to finish the job.
The two budget friendly foundations I use, (cos I am so extra). It’s completely unnecessary to use two, are the L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Matte and the La Girl Pro Matte HD. I use two primers as well. Again, unnecessary, but I explain why as I go.
I think when it comes to my full coverage foundation routine, skin prep is key. You need a good base for everything to sit on. Also sandwiching products really helps the longevity of your makeup.
Usually, if I was going more full on with my base, it would be for a reason and I would go ham with the rest of my makeup too. However, my plans for the day I filmed this video fell through, so I ended up just going more simple with the rest of my face. As I have oily skin that’s prone to some dehydration, that is what I focus on more here. I think the technique and most of the products would work across the spectrum though.
Disclaimer I say ‘tend to’ and ‘generally’, ALOT in the video, so please forgive me. I am always conscious when I am talking makeup techniques that I am not a makeup artist, that everything is up for interpretation and that I change up products and how I do things a fair amount. I am constantly learning 🙂
