My daily foundation routine with Clinique


Photography: Christine Michelle

I get many questions regarding my daily foundation routine. I have partnered up with Clinique to show you exactly what my routine consists of, ALL in which revolves around the Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder. Every women can definitely agree on the challenges of finding the perfect pressed powder that offers the right amount of coverage without the heavy built up feeling especially during these humid summer months. Fun fact: I always use these Clinique products on the everyday. So, getting to collaborate with one of my favorite makeup brands is so exciting.

All products used & shown will be listed on the above product bar linked directly to the site.  Let's get started!

For starters, I ALWAYS moisturize my face. This is religious for me....I believe it's very important to keep the face hydrated before applying your face makeup. I have tried tons of moisturizers, and this is honestly the one I always refer back to. It's amazing.

After my moisturizer, I go ahead and apply my primer. Many people ask what the primer is exactly for, the primer is a base for your foundation. Not only, will it reflect the true shade of the foundation, but it will help it last longer throughout the day. I really like Clinique's "Super Primer" because it's light and cream based.

Next, I move onto foundation. I cannot express enough my love for the "Chubby In The Nude" foundation stick. I first heard of this foundation by another beauty blogger who always raved about it, so I decided to give it a try. Not only is this foundation affordable, easy to apply, and leaves your skin gleaming...It ACTUALLY lasts about 8-9 hours. Living in Miami, the humidity always ruins my foundation (it melts off by the middle of the day). So, having a long lasting foundation is a must in my book. I also always look at the tint in the foundations, and for my skin specifically a yellow undertone is what works. Gladly, this foundation comes in 10 different shades. (P.S) I blend this foundation in with a stippling brush & always blending in circular motions.

After my foundation is applied, I move onto concealer. This was my first time trying this specific concealer, and it's honestly worth the hype! It's full coverage and it doesn't crease, which are two main components I look for in a good concealer. If you notice, I always apply my concealer in a downward motion. It makes it easier when blending it out, and it also doesn't mess up the foundation underneath.

Now onto the hero of it all.....After everything is ready and set in place, I softly pat on the "Stay Matte" powder all over. When it comes to setting my face makeup, I'm never a huge fan of matte but this powder specifically is magical! The formula that makes up this gem is oil absorbing meanwhile it has an ultra sheer texture. It keeps the dewy finish on my skin, but it mainly controls the oils, maintains my skin looking fresh and comfortable for hours.

Also, for the days where I don't really feel like wearing much makeup, this pressed powder is all I will wear. I carry this bad boy in my purse everywhere for mid day touch ups and especially for those beach days where makeup isn't an essential. This product can be applied for a lighter coverage but still maintain the benefits of keeping me oil free through out the hot day! 

I really hope this was somewhat helpful! I really adore prepping beauty post, they're always so fun to create.
