Tutorial: Achieving a flawless base with Maybelline*

Purchasing drugstore foundations can be complicated at times, trying to achieve a flawless base as well may seem unattainable. However, I have been trying out some tips and tricks, experimenting, and have found out what is the best way to get that perfect base and complexion. 

What I find to be most intimidating is trying to find that one perfect shade that will match you. What I have found works is, instead of trying to find that ONE color, pick three - none of them in which will be your perfect shade. This is why - you can use those three to custom blend something to match you. You will always need a bronzer, a highlighter as well as a base. With one that is darker, one lighter and one really light, you will be able to truly mix and match to your hearts content. 

Lastly, get a concealer that is also 2 shades lighter than you - and you will be able to obtain the look below. I hope you will see what I mean by looking at the step by step photos below!

Products used from Maybelline:
Foundation - Maybelline Fit Me! Matte and Poreless, Shades 230 Natural Buff and 360 Mocha
Super Stay Multi-Use Foundation Stick -130 Buff Beige
Concealer - Fit Me! - 20 Sand
Eyeshadow - The Burgundy Bar 
Brows - Tatto Studio - 360 Medium Brown
Eyeliner - EyeStudio - Brown

The one product that I would definitely recommend is the foundation stick - it goes on easy and blends out like a dream. It glides on the skin and blends out to a smooth satin finish. It also helps to even out any enlarged pores. It's a must have for sure, bonus - it doesn't oxidize. 

Until next time - XO, M
