Last Friday I found myself having to slap on some face for a double casting that day and decided to share how I put my base on despite my sick self. The video on how I put each product on is on our IGTV [ CLICK HERE TO VIEW ] , for better viewing visit our BEAUTY highlight on @blonde2brunette and in under 15 minutes (even though the video says 8min.) you can learn how to create a fresh face using affordable basics and with this base apply any eye & lip combo you like!!! It's also ideal for hot days where you don't want to layer too much or even beach / pool days.
I've prepped my skin with a few goodies I recently got from OAK, and you will see them back on the blog for Top 5's soon with a more detailed review...
Prepping the skin is just as important as putting on primer. The majority of my makeup listed can be bought at Target!

SKIN PREP STEPS:
Wash| Pixi Glow Mud cleanser or their Rose Cream cleanser. Both are the bomb! [BUY HERE]

So those are the specs of my "everyday- go to" -face. For other days like "date night" or "girls night" I may just use higher end products or maybe add a couple extra steps like "baking" and contouring further, but for the most part this is my main routine if I wear makeup. I try not to wear make-up everyday and only do my SKIN PREP routine on the regular. If you want to have fun exploring skin product, visit our favorite products list here. We will soon update the current list with these latest products mentioned above!
