My foundation routine changes on a regular (daily) basis. I like trying different techniques because it helps me learn what does and doesn’t work. Recently I settled into something I really like and thought it’s worth sharing because I used it five out of seven days one week. I like this method because it uses two different shades and keeps the full-coverage foundation from having a flat effect.
What I’m using:
- Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup in 320 Warm Golden and 330 Natural Tan – These don’t dry as quickly as the liquid version so they can sit a little bit longer on my skin before blending. More contrasting shades can be used, but I’m just going with what I already own.
- Sonia Kashuk Large Duo Fibre Brush to blend
- Tarte Bamboo Airbrush Finish Brush to buff
- Benefit Boi-ing Concealer in 02 Medium – any concealer works, but I like this one especially when I top with WR
- Sonia Kashuk Bare Minimum Pressed Powder in Translucent Medium – any powder – loose or pressed – works, preferably something translucent because the foundation itself is full-coverage. I’m currently trying to use this one up.
- bareMinerals Well Rested

I realize the foundations are rather close in shade. But I like this much better than using one or the other. I feel like this technique gives the most natural result. And when I’m pressed for time, I can skip bronzer altogether (gasp!).
I hope you enjoyed this one. It was fun trying to get all the pictures between steps! What are you best tips to look natural in full-coverage foundation?
