The Bare Essentials

Posted Jul 30 2013 7:51am
You gotta prep the canvas before you can apply the paint I always say.  These are the products I am currently using to prep my skin to give it that even flawless finish before I apply the color - the bare essentials of makeup if you will...

 {Yes, a bear showing my bare skin essentials.}

{L, complete bare skin. R, skin after I used all of the above products together.}
Before we continue - Please pay no attention to my slightly red left eye - I had a mascara wand accident that took a few hours to die down!  And of course I have a limited window of time to take blog photos with a tight schedule and 3 little people running around so I had to go ahead and take pics, irritated eyeball and all!!  Ok, moving on...

From The Lab Eyelift Primer  |  Eclose Daily HydraPrimer
1st Step : PRIMERS for eye lids and skin.

This From The Lab lid primer is pretty flippin' fantastic!! It creates an even, vein-free, smooth lid in an instant and gives my shadows amazing staying power.  The FTLab is a revolutionary concept of a monthly beauty subscription box filled with innovative beauty products, just click the link above to find out more.
This Eclos daily HydraPrimer with SPF 30 is a product I received thanks to my Klout influence . They send out Klout Perks every now and then I can choose from to redeem, which is super fun!  If you're a blogger or on social media a lot (like me!), then you should sign up to see what your Klout # is and to potentially receive new and exciting products.  I have been using this primer alone when I run to the gym or pool bc it evens out my skin just enough without any foundation, plus the SPF 30 is key!  It also promises to be anti-aging with regular use so I'm just waiting to look 5-10 years younger:)

MAC Studio Conceal and Correct Palette, Medium | Revlon PhotoReady Foundation in Nude 

Next I apply my foundation like this Revlon one I've been loving (bc I read somewhere it was actress Olivia Wilde's favorite - seriously).  Then I spot treat any areas like the under eyes and blemishes with this amazing MAC concealer palette which has so many wearable concealer shades to hide, disguise, and contour with!

Physician's Formula Happy Booster Light Bronzer
Last Step : BRONZER. 
The slight breakage at the bottom of this product is thanks to my almost 3 year old :)  This is a new purchase for me, and I love the mosaic of dark, medium, and light bronze shades plus the cute little pink center heart!  Definitely a mood booster when brushed around the perimeter of my face and along the cheekbones to give my complexion just the right amount of warmth and light!
