Because you asked for it, I’m sharing my new Foundation Routine for Glowy Pale Skin. This everyday makeup routine gives my skin the perfect amount of coverage without feeling heavy or like I’m wearing a ton of makeup. It makes my dry skin glowy and gorgeous.
Foundation Routine for Glowy Pale Skin
PR + Purchased by me.
My glowy pale skin from yesterday. This is the makeup that I tried to replicate. I used the same products and method in this tutorial. The only difference is the lip color, blush color, and eyeshadow.

This is the concealer technique that I’ve been practicing, thanks to Mickey. After priming the face, I use the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealers and then put on a a sheer foundation, Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint. It’s far less foundation than I normally wear and it makes me glow. When I did this foundation routine earlier this week, you guys said you loved it and wanted a tutorial on it, so I quickly made this everyday foundation makeup routine tutorial.
I hate my eyeshadow in this video. I had a very hard time getting Sugarpill Castle On the Hill to look nice, no matter how much I blended the shade. It really frustrated me because it’s a nice, deep, cool-toned brown. I just found it difficult to work with. I’m not sure if I had so much trouble because I used a setting powder for my base shade or what.

I’m in love with the Urban Decay Quick Fix Prep Spray and Optical Illusion Primer. I don’t think I’d used an Urban Decay Complexion Primer before this one but so far I’m really impressed with it. These launched on Urban Decay’s website and they’ll hopefully be available soon at Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom, etc.
What do you think of this foundation routine? Have you tried using concealers with a sheer foundation before?

You look fabulous and the skin… glowing. I will say however, that lip color on you – is gorgeous.
Thank you so much! That’s Sugarpill Pumpkin Spice.

Your skin looks AMAZING! I want to try that UD PRIMER STAT!
Yes you need it! I think it’s amazing.
I don’t have the Glossier but I do have the Kat Von D concealer in one shade. I wonder if I can replicate this. I will get the UD Primer when it’s available.
You can try it with what you have on hand 🙂

So interesting to see this technique. Wish I had known about that UD Quick Fix when I was struggling to find things to try during the Sephora and Ulta coupon events – next time!
It just launched for Spring 2017!
