So, I just wanted to post my skincare/foundation regimen so you all can see what I believe works the best. I’ve wasted so much money on skincare products that I never ever used & with these products I finally got it right. I hope you ladies take my advice because these products are awesome. My foundation stays on & look amazing all day & that can be difficult when you have acne prone/comination skin. If you have any further questions just send me some questions in my ask. If you enjoy this tutorial let me know & I’ll do more on other products.
Clinique Acne Solutions 3 Step System - $50.00
I love this system. It’s the best system I’ve ever used & I’ve used all the top named brands. It works so much better than Proactiv & SkinID. It’s the best out there in my opinion. It is drying, yes, but all acne systems are. Just get a moisturizer & I have one I’ll be showing later on that I swear by. The system contains a foaming face wash,a toner, & a moisturizing acne lotion.
Clean&Clear Oil-Free Deep Action Exfoiliating Scrub - $5.00
When using a drying, acne system, it’s important to exfoiliate at least once a week to remove the dead skin cells. This stuff is incredible. I absolutely love it. It’s oil-free so it won’t dry your pores & the cooling effect it gives your skin is so amazing. I use it up to 3 times a week when my face is too dry. I’ll use this in the morning instead of the Clinique. It’s awesome & so cheap. Best scrub out there.
3.Clinique City Block SPF 25- $15.00 at Sephora.com
Moisturizer, Primer, SPF all in one! You can get this in tinted or sheer. The type I use is tinted. I put it on right after I’m done with washing my face before I put on my foundation. I love it. It’s just amazing. SPF is extremely important for you to use. Not just because of the sun, but because it’s also the anti-aging benefit you get from an SPF. My grandmother is 73 years old & you wouldn’t think that she was even 55. All because she used sunscreen on her face her whole life. This stuff is life-saving. It’s non-comdogenic & oil-free so there’s no pre clogging to worry about. I love this product.
4.Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation for Oily/Combination Skin - $10.00 at Walmart
This foundation gives the best coverage & has the best staying power. The best part is, is that it’s a drugstore foundation. It’s absolutely wonderful. They also have a formula for dry skin. I put this on with a sponge & then I do another layer with a stippling brush. I don’t even need a concealer with this product. I use this as a concealer as well. I’ve been through so many liquid foundations & this is my holy grail. It’s oil-free & has an SPF of 6. Not enough SPF, but it’s great that they incorporated some SPF into the product. Only downside for most people is that it doesn’t have a pump, but I like that factor. Whatever’s left in my palm I pour right back into the bottle so I don’t waste any. This product is worth every cent.
5. Revlon Colorstay Powder - $8.00 at Walmart
For that matte finish we all want, it’s important to set your make-up with a powder. This is the product I use & of course it’s just like the foundation. The staying power is awesome. It’s good for touch-ups midday, but I rarely even need to do that. It comes in Sheer, Light, Medium Light, Medium, Medium Dark, & Dark.
6.E.l.f. High Definintion Powder- $6.00 elf.com
I’m in love with this product. It’s exactly like Make Up Forever’s HD powder which costs $30.00. It just sets your makeup so wonderfully. It comes with a sponge, but I use a kabuki brush to apply it. The matte finish it awesome & keeps my make-up on all day long. It’s a must have for those of us with oily skin.
7.Bonnebelle Blend N’ Glow - $3.00 at Walmart
I can’t even tell you how much I love this stuff. It’s amazing & cheap as dirt. It have 4 different colors of blush & glowing powder. I’ve even used the lighter shades as eyeshadows. For the price & the pretty glow it gives you, it’s a must have.
8. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray - 27.00 Sephora.com
After you’re done with everything including eyeshadow, mascara, etc., you hold this stuff about 8 inches away from your face & spray it a few times. It’s basically the last thing you’ll do. This stuff seriously is worth the $27. I’ve taken naps after school, woken up & nothing on my face looks different. It all stays in place thanks to this awesome product.
I hope I helped & I hope you all enjoyed. Don’t forget to ask me if you have any questions.
