I am constantly searching for the way to get the most flawless face. Perhaps it's my unending quest for something better, or it's all the fault of Julia Roberts, but I can't stop searching for THE BEST.
I have nice skin. I'm lucky. I have a little bit of redness and some melasma and the occasional blemish. My skin is dry, eats blush and by the end of the day, my redness and melasma show through. I recently started removing my peach fuzz (I'm also now using something to make it grow back) and I really like how the foundation looks on smoother skin. Except the melasma and redness seem more prominent, since my fur buffer is gone. See where this is going? It's a process and each step of my quest is revealing a new path.
Here is my new favorite way to get a flawless face.
I start with the new Smashbox PhotoFinish Hydrating Primer. This primer keeps my dry skin looking supple and fresh all day long, without ever feeling oily. I then apply concealer to my under eye area. I'm still milking the last of my Eve Pearl. Next, and possibly one of the two most crucial steps, I apply the new bareMinerals Redness Remedy to the areas where I have some redness.
Then I thoroughly wet my Beauty Blender, which I finally caved and purchased. It is so worth the $20. I know, I know. It's a makeup sponge. How special can it be? Trust me. Would I lie to you? Here is what you do. You wet it until it basically doubles in size and then you ring it out, so it's barely damp.
Now for the amazing part. My foundation and blush stayed mainly intact for a full work day. My blush almost NEVER lasts that long. And the best part is that my blush looks like blush, which is what I have been missing. Before I had a highlight above my cheek, cheek color and then some murky, ruddy bleh under my cheekbone. Now, after using the Redness Remedy and the Beauty Blender, my skin looks flawless, almost like Julia Roberts in that ad that was banned in Britain. More importantly, I have cheeks that look healthy and happy. Which honestly, makes me feel much better. It's the little things...
