Either Youth to the People facial oil and Australian Gold Tinted Facial Sunscreen
Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentree and Australian Gold Tinted Facial Sunscreen
Becca Backlight Priming Filter and Australian Gold Tinted Facial Sunscreen

(seeing a pattern here?)

Tatcha Liquid Silk Canvas…either Armani Luminous Silk Foundation or Pat McGrath Lab Sublime Perfection Foundation and of course…….Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter for a strategically placed glow!!

Uoma Say What! Foundation in Bronze Venus T1W. It truly feels weightless. It’s a perfect shade match and wears so beautifully. I absolutely love it and I’ve only had it for about a week. It was love at first wear.

Haha! Got some carried away with my love for the foundation I forgot to mention their contour/highlight stick and concealer which are fantastic as well. The contour stick is so smooth and blends so nicely and the highlight stick is smoother than smooth. I’ve been wearing them under my foundation and it gives the most flawless look.

Today I used the Fenty matchstixs in Truffle as the contour and Caramel for a concealer under my Uoma foundation and it is gorgeous. I do find the Fenty matchstix to be much drier than the Uoma ones but they still blend out really nicely and wear beautifully. I especially love to use the Caramel stix over a little oil under my eye for extra hydration.

I’ve also been enjoying mixing my Fenty Longwear Foundation with her soft matte primer to make a BB cream.

But at the moment, the Uoma base system is my absolutely love right now.

3-4 parts MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Foundation NC41 mixed with Marc Jacobs Dew You Dew Drops gives me a slightly dewy, natural finish and medium, buildable coverage that lasts even through getting out for essential shopping on public transit. Last summer, this foundation proved itself by holding up under the intense humidity combined with 105°+ daily temps!

Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter drops in Luminous Gold (which I recently discovered is pretty much a bang on dupe for Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight for waaaaaaay less $$) with my current foundation, which I mixed up out of a whole bunch of previous ones I didn’t like so much. The end result is pretty great!

Currently I am using:
1. PMG Dragon’s Blood Daily moisturiser with SPF 20 (it’s winter here)
2. Sometimes – Nude by Nature Airbrush primer
3. L’Oreal’s True Match foundation in porcelain rose.

3 parts Missha BB 42 spf cream in shade 21 + 1 part IT CC 50 spf cream in Fair Light- Love the Missha BB cream but it has a grayish undertone so I add a little IT CC cream withh a yellow undertone to warm it up. I live at 5,000 ft in altitude and much closer to the equator than North America So I need all the spf I can get!

All Fenty, all the time-Amber Match Stix as cheek contour, 110 concealer, and 110 soft matte foundation. When I remember to use primer first, I break the Fenty streak and use Urban Decay Optical Illusion primer.

Touch in Sol No Poreblem primer, Bareminerals Bareskin complete coverage concealer in Light and Bareminerals Original foundation in Fairly Light (or Bobbi Brown stick foundation in Sand if I don’t feel like using powder). Sometimes I also use the Bobbi Brown undereye corrector in Light Bisque. That’s my failsafe base combo 🙂

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Primer Water in In Love With Coco, JCat Aquasurance Compact Foundation in Porcelain, and Juvia’s Place I Am Magic Loose Setting Powder in White Sands. My skin has been super oily and not getting along with my usual primers or liquid foundations most days.
