Lets be honest-nobody likes patchy and unblended makeup. Flawless makeup is something we all yearn for and not to blow my own horn, but I often get compliments on how flawless my makeup is looking so I thought today i would share with you all my top 5 beauty products that have helped me up my makeup game to a whole new level and of course, make it look FLAWLESS!
Lets get one thing straight- Your makeup is only going to look as good as what’s underneath it. Skin care is key to flawless makeup. For me, the product that makes the biggest difference is an exfoliator. I like to exfoliate 3-4 times a week to get rid of any texture or build up dirt on my skin. By exfoliating, your foundation/concealer is less likely to look cake-y and cling to dry patches and more likely to go on smoothly and give you that blended/flawless look.
Do not underestimate the power of this simple looking sponge because it can literally do wonders for your makeup. I opt for the real technique sponge instead of the original beauty blender because 1) I feel like they both do the same thing and 2) the real techniques one is less than half the price of the beauty blender. The way this works is that it soaks in any excess product whether it be foundation or concealer in order to prevent that cake-y/fine lines situation. Also, brushes sometimes tend to leave these stroke marks but with a beauty blender you can get a smooth finish to your foundation. What’s amazing is that you can use this sponge for powders as well- I actually use it to bake/set my under eye area and it really helps to keep those creases and powder-y ness at bay.
Mac Prep + Prime Fix+
It took me long enough to try this product but I can say that it is definitely worth the hype! Just like the beauty blender, this lightweight water mist can be used in a variety of different ways. As I have dry skin, I like to use this before applying my makeup to hydrate my skin and it really helps prevent my foundation from looking too dry or cake-y. If you feel like your highlighter looks too unblended or harsh, you can simply spray some of this on to your beauty blender and pat that on top of where you have applied your highlighter, and it gives you the most beautiful/blended/dewy glow. Lastly, I sometimes spray this all over my face after being done with my makeup to make sure my makeup is looking smooth and blended.
Real Techniques Detailer Brush
I got this brush in the Real Techniques Base Brush Set and it is hard to believe that a teeny tiny brush like this one can be of so much use while doing makeup. This brush is perfect for fixing up any makeup mistakes or when you need to be super precise. I love using this to fix any mistakes while doing my winged liner and if you are looking to go for that super sharp winged liner look then this is your best friend. I also love using it to carve out or clean up my brows with concealer. Lastly, this is perfect for fixing up any lipstick mistakes especially when going for super dark or bright lip shades!
Translucent Setting Powder
Last but definitely not the least is a setting powder- and I am talking specifically about the RCMA no colour powder. The reason why I prefer this over others is that because it is super lightweight and does not have any pigment, it does not feel heavy/cake-y on the skin and does not alter the colour of the foundation. I use this specifically in the t-zone and cheek area and it literally blurs my fine lines and pores to give me a super smooth and flawless finish to my makeup. I highly recommend this powder as it is cheap and you get so much quantity (3 oz.).
And those are my top 5 beauty products without which my makeup would not look even close to flawless! I hope you all found this helpful and maybe learnt some new tips.
