I feel that whatever is the least amount of makeup you can get away with, that\’s what you should wear. I cringe whenever I see YouTubers apply thick layers of heavy base. Since I started using Drunk Elephant, Kate Somerville, and First Aid Beauty my skin has been extra good (I also started jogging and yoga which also contributes to great skin too!). So right now my makeup philosophy boils down to \”less is more.\”
I\’ve seen tutorials on YouTube where people only use concealer on areas of concern, and proceed to set it with powder. I felt inspired to try different concealer-powder combos until I came across the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer! I really love how the texture and finish of this stuff actually looks like real skin (even when looking into a 10x magnification mirror)!!! It can be used under the eyes, as well as to cover blemishes and redness where needed. I blend with my fingers and then I set it with the Urban Decay Naked Skin Loose Powder (unfortunately Sephora doesn\’t carry this, but you can get it on the Urban Decay or Macy\’s websites). This stuff stays put all day and doesn\’t start to look gross after several hours of wear. When I get oily I just blot and add powder (NYX Blotting Powder) and my complexion looks fresh again. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is a summer necessity!
The coverage is great, and I absolutely love how my skin looks with this on!
In summary, I think that we should all invest in great skincare. Once you\’re happy with your skin, makeup actually becomes more fun to play with!
