Powder before foundation!


I am not sure if you heard about this technique before, but the whole beauty community is talking about it. It started with a video made by Goss Make up artist.

Here's the video:

When I first heard about it, I was like: "No fcking way!" I needed to primer my face anyway, so why not try this one? I mean, it is not like I like waiting for my cream and sunscreen to set in..  so I tried it. 

And you know what? The result is unbelievable! A healthy looking skin. It does not even look like you are wearing foundation and I am not even exaggerating. 

This is such a game changer, that I am not going back to the "correct" way, ever. 

I use:

* my regular moisturiser
* my sunscreen, and a thick layer too
* powdered foundation or just setting powder (it must be loose powder or it looks caked!)
* foundation (I prefer a mat finishing foundation, but other types work too, just look more dewy)
* a bit of powdered foundation on my T-zone if needed

The amazing thing about this technique is that the foundation stays for the whole day. I don't look shiny after a couple of hours, and it does not cling to those dry patches I sometimes get. It looks like my skin!!

It looks pretty good, right?

Will you try it?
