This Makeup Trick Is A Major Time Saver In The Mornings
For most women, mornings can be hectic. Whether you are getting yourself ready or a family of four, I don’t know one woman who wouldn’t like to have an extra 10 minutes in their morning routine. Well, now you can.
I met with Soraya, a makeup artist at Sephora Union Square and she revealed this makeup hack that I instantly knew I had to share with all of you. I had recently gotten my foundation matched and we’re trying the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Chai ($39.00, Sephora.com). The way I normally begin my makeup routine (after my skincare routine) is to add a primer, then my foundation, then my concealer, and finally, my setting powder or spray. I normally let my primer sit for five minutes, then I put on the rest. In my mind, it’s layering, like paint…or a cake.
…I was wrong.
Soraya shared that all I had to do was mix my primer, foundation, and setting powder into one mixture and just apply with a brush. “Really?” I thought out loud. “Yes,” she answered. I was doubtful as I watched her apply the mixture to my face.
She used Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Primer ($34.00, Ulta.com) and Too Faced Setting Powder in Translucent Deep ($33.00, Sephora.com). After she was done, she applied some concealer under my eyes and blended it out.
I took one look in the mirror and I loved the results! My face looked smooth and had full coverage.
Now for the real test: would this look hold up throughout the day? It definitely did…and surprisingly, I didn’t have to reapply any setting powder to matte out oil in my t-zone. I’m not sure if this is a result of the primer or the setting powder and I think it might be both. I was introduced to the Too Faced brand through their Peach Mist Mattifying Setting Spray ($32.00, Sephora.com) and their Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder ($33.00, Sephora.com). Not only do these two products from the collection smell delightful, they also work! I’m always hesitant to use a setting powder that’s white and not in a “deep” shade; however, this powder blends so nicely into my skin.
