Updated Drugstore Foundation Tutorial

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another tutorial!  I've gotten a lot of questions on my new foundation routine which includes the Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Foundations.  In this post I show you the 5 minute process to get a complete look.
Check out the video!

After moisturizing, I prime my skin.  I don't always do this but when I want a smooth look that lasts it's an important step. The L'Oreal Studio Secrets primer is really nice.  I just use my fingers to rub it in.
Here are my tools:  I apply the foundation directly on my face with the spongy applicator.  Then I stipple and blend it in with the Qosmedix Sponge.  I set my foundation, contour and apply my blush with one brush - the Sedona Lace Vortex Jumbo Fan Brush.
I used the following foundations and concealers.  I place Tan on the outside of my face where my skin is darker and Honey in the middle.  This also gives me more of a two-dimensional, sculpted look.  I used the Medium concealer as a highlight.  When I want more coverage, I pair it on top of a salmon corrector.

I don't really have a drugstore powder, but I found that this Milani Bronzer works great for a quick set.  Fortunately, the Maybelline foundation also sets on its own pretty well.  The right side of my Milani Bronzer is my skin tone.  It has a bit of shimmer but nothing crazy.  I use the darker side on the left to contour.  I'm loving the Milani Baked Blushes.  They go on super smooth and they're comparable to higher end baked blushes.  

I just can't have a complete look without my brows.  I use the middle color in the Milani Dark Brow Fix kit and an eyebrow brush.  It takes 2 minutes.
I finish off with a sheer gloss.
The final look!

Hope this foundation routine helped some of you all.  Have any of you used the Maybelline Eraser line?  Let me know your feedback in the comments below!

I haven't had much luck with drugstore foundations. I may give the Maybelline one a try. I own and love the Milani blush in Rose D'Oro, it is a lovely color:)

Nice post. I have seen the Age Rewind foundations but I didn't think it's for me. After reading your post, I might check it out after all. I love Milani products. They're a tad on the cheaper side and as good as the high end products.

I have not tried this yet but I have heard great things about this and the concealer. I have been loving Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundation!

Nice post. I want to practice putting make up real fast but neat.
I want to try that Maybelline foundation too. :D
The only problem I have with those blenders are it is so hard to wash it.( I own pink ones) I'll check out some black blenders at Sasa. Dups here in Singapore is around SGD 6
