Updated Foundation Routine: Winter

Besides the fact that my skin has been a tad drier, I've had to change my face routine because I ran out of my favorite foundation in the world (NARS Sheer Glow) and I'm also running low on my everyday face powder (MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural). Sheer Glow retails for around $45 (without a pump) and considering I have other foundations in my stash (as well as a tiny budget for new makeup), I've had to postpone repurchasing Sheer Glow indefinitely. Nothing works as well for me as Sheer Glow, but I have other nice foundations that do the job very well. Here's how I've been doing my face makeup for the last few months.

For reference, my skin type is normal. It's been a bit drier lately particularly around my cheeks where I've been aggressively treating my acne. For that reason I sometimes use the MAC Fix+ spray both underneath and on top of my makeup. It adds a subtle dewy look.

Contour/Bronzer: MAC Shadester and Shadowy
Blush: MAC Melba

How has your foundation routine changed during the winter? P.S. I want to wish everyone happy holidays! Stay safe and positive!

  6. My foundation routine doesn't change at all with the seasons, haha. I try to limit myself to just one foundation, preferably a satin one - that way, I can add a liquid highlight to make it more dewy, powder for more matte (tho who am I kidding I never matte out my foundation entirely), or sheer it out with primer or moisturizer. Plus it helps keeping the hoarding down lol. I love this look, it's so fresh and natural!

  15. Happy New Year girl!
    I know what you mean, sometimes you get really attached to a certain product in your collection and when you use it up its tragic! But it's also a good opportunity to shop your stash and try and use up other things? I find it so satisfying when I do that.
    I'm actualy nearing the end of my Sheer Glow too but I picked up a couple of bases while I was in the US that I've really been loving them - the MUFE Ultra HD (the bottle version but now I kind of wish I got the stick version instead/as well haha) and the MAC Studio Waterweight foundation. I've never liked a MAC liquid foundation but this has impressed me so much and I really love it! I would say its quite similar to NARS Sheer Glow but the formula much more liquidy! Try and get a sample or get them to try it on you!
