My Current Complexion Routine

My Current Complexion Routine

Good morning! Today is my birthday and I wanted to share my current complexion routine with you. Any product that I know is vegan is marked as vegan.


If you like this video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe!

I typically do my complexion routine after I do my eyeshadow, so that I can clean up any fallout from the eyeshadow before I do the rest of my face. If I’m not doing eyeshadow, I’ll do my complexion routine, then mascara, brows, cheeks and lips.

Some of my favorite face primers

Some of my favorite setting powders

Both the Cover FX and Urban Decay are tinted. Silk Naturals, NARS and Purely Cosmetics are blurring.

My favorite face brushes for applying setting powder

Complexion perfection products that I’ve reached for lately (see my Best Vegan Foundations & Makeup Wars Foundations post for more options)

Some of my favorite concealers

Makeup Sponges

      I’ll have to try that setting powder before foundation thing you do. So want to get a bottle of that Atelier goop! I scoured the internet for something equivalent, but came up with nothing!

        Illamasqua Skin Base in 1 is another white :)

      Hope you had a great birthday! Great idea to mix the primers for the best of both worlds. I tried that with the Cover FX anti-aging and matte primers, and it worked pretty well.
