Two Steps to A Long Lasting Base
I've been properly using a foundation pair in order to achieve flawless and long-lasting skin. In the Texas heat, it's easy for makeup to slip and slide around but with this duo, my base stays put all day long. Starting off with primer, the Makeup Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer is a mattifying primer that fills in pores and fine lines without adding grease to the skin. I apply a pea-sized amount to my t-zone so that the extra oil on my skin is soaked up all day. This primer has a weird silicone texture that takes some getting used to but once it's applied, it's not going anywhere. On top of the primer, I like to wear the Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer in the shade Ochre for an everyday base. Although it's a tinted moisturizer, the product gives a medium-buildable coverage that feels light on the skin and protects from UVA and UVB rays. The tinted moisturizer and primer work really well together to stop oil from seeping through the skin and they last all day long without patchiness. They're both amazing products that I highly recommend!
