Good morning beautiful! Ok it's finally up :) Woop! Wanted to make this video to show you what I usually do BEFORE I film my makeup tutorials which involve mostly eyeshadows. I don't do this routine on a regular basis, just when I'm filming, special occasions or for night's out because even though it looks great it's also important to let your skin breath now and then :) If you want to see my everyday makeup routine (consisting only of the MAC Studio Fix powder as a foundation) then watch this video here.
As I've mentioned before, you can apply all the makeup in the world but you need to start with a good canvas which means eating right, drinking lots of water and taking care of your skin. This is the most important! Makeup then just comes in to enhance your beauty.

These are the brushes I showed in my video. From left to right:
1. Real Techniques Buffing Brush
2. MAC #187
3. ELF Powder Brush
4. Sigma F60
They all work great. If I want a heavier coverage I use the Sigma 'paintbrush' one. It makes your skin look amazing! The ELF one is also great and it's only $3! The MAC one gives a very airy-light type of finish. It's good to experiment with different ones!
Now over to you, what's your favorite foundation? And your favorite foundation brush? Always good to know what you guys like too!
The glitter holiday makeup from the lipstick video will be my next video! XOXO
Want to add in this comment from a viewer & my response! It's good because I want to emphasize the importance of eating healthy and how it affects your skin - I am a walking example. Everyone can have beautiful skin, you just have to take care of it properly.
