The first thing I would suggest is getting a foundation that matches the rest of your body.
As far as applying bronzer, there’s a few ways to go about it. Personally, I would use bronzer instead of a blush. I wouldn’t use bronzer to contour.
I would apply the bronzer around the perimeter of the face: The cheekbones, the top of the forehead and under the jawline. To help blend out the edges you could take your foundation brush and use the leftover foundation to smooth it out and make it more seamless.
I hope that helps!
Here is a higher quality image of what the makeup look I posted yesterday actually looked like. Details in the previous post.
For summer I really recommend Estee Lauder Double Wear!
It’s a foundation more on the liquidy side which means it’s more light weight and feels lighter on the skin yet still has awesome coverage. They even make a more light weight formula called Double Wear Light however it has a little less coverage but still extremely long lasting. Double Wear is probably the longest lasting foundation i’ve ever used which is why its great for summer! Full coverage + feels light + lasts all day, aka perfect. My only complaint is that since it is so long wearing it can be a tad drying and isnt dewy or moisturizing so you will need a moisturizer under.
I also have a post all about how I treat my acne here :)
Also, lately for a spot treatment i’ve been loving the Clean & Clear Benzoyl Peroxide Persa Gel 10 because it will literally shrink a pimple overnight!
However this is very, very strong the first time I used it I applied it all over and woke up in a rash! However my bff who uses it has more resilient skin so she can use it all over and be fine. But I ONLY use a teeny tiny bit as a spot treatment and usually at night followed by a rich moisturizer since it is drying. This product is easy to use wrong but when you find the best way to use it it’s awesome for acne!
I’ve been on such a mineral powder foundation kick lately! lol
I’ve been using my Bare Minerals a lot lately and i’ve been using the ELF Kabuki brush, it’s so soft and fluffy. Only $6 at Target and i’m able to get pretty full coverage using this brush! Their $3 ELF Flat Top Brush works great too :)
The Flat Top brush is great for buffing product in the lid!
Tarte’s new brush that’s meant to be used with their new mineral foundation is great because it’s for mineral foundation! You can buy it separately :)
I forgot how nice bare minerals shadows are!
