Flawless long lasting foundation routine

Hi Ladies just wanted to show you all how I've been applying my foundation to help it last all day in this Summer heat. Hope you enjoy :)

Step 1:
I apply my concealer first followed by my primer. Some may take I'm crazy for doing in this way but I find that's what works best for me. 

 Step 2:
I spray my foundation brush with my setting spray until it's wet.

 Step 3:
Okay pay attention here. Being that your brush is wet only use half the amount of foundation that you normally would. I've been mixing these two together since one is too light & one is too dark. Being that the brush is wet you will have a dewy look.

Step 4:
If your not into the dewy look like me just apply whichever powder you'd like. 

Step 5:
The fun part now you get to play with blush, bronzer, & highlight.

Ladies seriously using a wet brush really worked wonders for me! I use less foundation & my skin looks flawless. Most importantly I don't have to touch up my makeup during the day & it doesn't melt off. 

Remember: You can use whichever  type of products work best for you. I just showed the ones that go with my skin type.


  1. I would have never thought to use the makeup mist set on the brush. Has it made a big difference?

    1. I've had this spray sitting in a drawer for the past year because I really didn't find that it worked. So I decided to see how it would work if I would spray it on my brush & to my surprise I really like it. Makes such a huge difference in my makeup. Now I know for sure I'll continue to buy this setting spray.

  2. Fantastic routine. I always skip primer, but it's such a good idea. I like your foundation brush. I need a thick, flat one like that.

  3. I need to try a few of those products!:)

  4. I've never used a setting spray before. I might just have to do that! I'm a southern girl too...although you are just a little bit further south than me. I'm in Shreveport...

    1. You should try one! With this hot Louisiana heat it's a must have item for me. I'm glad you found my blog :)

  5. I've never used a brush to put on foundation. I'll have to try that.

    1. It's the best way to apply foundation for me. I love it!

  6. I will definitely try it. What's your favorite eye liner? I need some & I always have issues with it smudging.

    1. Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Eyeliner Trio Brown Eyes.

      They're a little on the pricey side, but for three eyeliners it's worth it. Lasts all day without smudging. I've been having my set for almost a year & I still have a good bit of product left.

  7. this is really interesting. I have the urban decay de-slick setting spray that I like to use. Now I want that elf one! I love elf. I wonder if I would get even better coverage and a dewier look if I try this. it saves $$ too from using 1/2 of your foundation.
