Foundation and Brow Routine #teenblogseries

 
 
 
 
 

It's Monday, so that means it's time for another post in the #teenblogseries! Today it's all about our foundation and brows routine. I don't actually wear foundation everyday, mostly just concealer or bb cream. But I do fill my brows in everyday, here is what I do!

Foundation

The first thing I like to do is apply a small amount of the Benefit Porefessional around my nose, chin and forehead.  If I were to wear foundation that day, I would go for my Rimmel Match Perfection. I have actually recently reviewed this foundation so you can view that here. I like to dot this around my face and then blend it in using a Real Techniques Buffing Brush. Blending is really important as you don't want the foundation to look unnatural.

 I then apply some concealer on any blemishes and under my eyes. I like to use the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I then use the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush to blend the concealer in. Lastly, I set all that make up with the Natural Collection Pressed Powder.

Brows

I have quite naturally dark eyebrows but I like to neaten them up a bit. Firstly, I do pluck my eyebrows but only the ones that are out of place as I don't like to shape them myself. I recommend asking your mum or someone experienced before you go plucking them. And if you want to trim and shape them I would get them done professionally as you don't want to end up with 1 row of hairs.

On to the actual filling in, I like to use a pencil as it is more precise. For this I like to use the Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil, I have the darkest shade black brown. It comes with a brush as well which is useful. I am pretty sure this was only about £3 or £4 so an absolute bargain!

I very gently fill my eyebrows in, using small and short strokes to look like hairs. Make sure you are pressing lightly as you want it to be very natural and you want it to look like hairs and not pencil marks. Once I have finished I take a clear brow gel, this one is from 17, to set the brows in place.

So that is my foundation and brow routine I hope you enjoyed it! Thank you for reading, bye!

  1. I use the same foundation as well, it is great for teens because it has a budget friendly price tag as well as having a good coverage.
