It’s helpful to have a full protection concealer round, even when you don’t like carrying something near a full protection base.
I purchased a stunning full protection liquid Dior Backstage Concealer in 4W at Sephora on a whim a number of months in the past as a result of I preferred the ever-so-slightly pearl end and the creamy consistency.
Facet observe, apparently shopping for make-up “on a whim” is my new magnificence philosophy, ha!
Anywho, whereas I’ve solely used it a handful of occasions, it’s definitely delivered the products. Recently I’ve had some uneven patches and post-inflammatory darkish spots (I’m breaking out from hormones and stress, such a stunning mixture), and the concealer does a superb job of disguising each.
Should you’re trying to find a concealer that hides errrrrthang with out trying heavy, strive the Dior!
I utilized Laura Mercier Primer as a base, after which I blended the Dior and Rose Inc Serum collectively and utilized the combo throughout my face with my fingers, concentrating on my chin and round my lips. After the bottom dried somewhat bit, I grabbed a fluffy face brush and buffed all the pieces collectively for a seamless look.
Then, I took a tiny, pointed concealer brush and painted the spots the place I needed further protection, and softened the sides with a finger to take away any harsh strains.
At this level one may mud somewhat powder on to set all the pieces, however currently, every time I put on powder, I simply really feel like I’ve an excessive amount of product on my face, and the very first thing I wish to do is take all the pieces off. I suppose that is what occurs whenever you go from carrying ALL THE THINGS to NONE OF THE THINGS, which leads me to the face primer from Laura Mercier.
One may simply skip it to avoid wasting a step, however I really feel like when you’re going to decide out of a setting powder on the finish, prepping with a primer in the beginning actually does assist to anchor all of your base make-up to your face. I’ve combo pores and skin and it appears to essentially assist the make-up keep on all day, particularly on my oily spots.
OK, whereas we’re nonetheless as regards to make-up, I instructed myself in the beginning of the week that I’m going to put on somewhat bit on a regular basis this week and take a pic of no matter finally ends up on my face, even when it’s not essentially the most camera-ready look. And if the make-up appears to be like just about the identical bronzed look all week lengthy, I’m simply gonna lean into it, LOL! I feel it’ll assist put an additional pep in my step.
Hope all the pieces is nicely with you, and that your week is off to a pleasant begin. If you wish to inform me one thing good that’s occurred to you recently, I’m all ears!
