 POWDER BRUSH

 FOUNDATION (2C1 Pure Beige)

 POWDER (Shell Beige 05)

 FOUNDATION BRUSH

 CONCEALER (00 Stand Corrected)

I figured I would do an updated face make up post since I have completely changed my routine even down to the brushes! So sorry for the novel but I will just tell you what I love most about these.. (none of this is sponsored, I wish this stuff was free, trust me)

I ALWAYS go to Cara from Maskcara Blog for beauty advice and we recently went shopping together while she was in town and she helped me find a new foundation brush and concealer.. both have revolutionized my make up routine! The brush is technically for bronzer but I use it for foundation and honestly it spreads it PERFECTLY.. I can now use 1/3 of the amount I was before and I am not exaggerating! This concealer is the first concealer I actually LOVE. It doesn’t crease below your eyes and just looks dewy.

I started using Double Wear Foundation after recommended from my insanely beautiful friend Bree (@brianajane on IG) and I love it. It is full coverage but I seriously use less than a dime size amount.. especially with the new brush it just spreads so easily and it lasts all day which I love most. The Double Wear Powder is also amazing and helps your make up last all day as well and if applied with the flat brush pictured above in a pressing motion (NOT a swiping motion) – you will be able to make your powder last three times as long – pinky promise.

  1. How do you apply the DoubleWear liquid foundation with a bronzer brush? Is the brush wet or dry when you apply? Thanks!

    1. It is dry!! And you just do it like you would any normal brush, you should try it. Sephoras return policy is fabulous anyways so if you don’t like it just return it!

  2. LOVE this post!! Especially because I am in need of new brushes and makeup! Are you planning on doing a video tutorial on how to use the brushes? …and do you use a primer, if so what kind?

    THANK YOU! :)

    1. I probably will not do a tutorial! But they are really easy to use! :) and no I do not currently use a primer just a moisturizer beforehand!

    1. Hey girl so sorry I am getting ready to leave on a seven week long trip so my life is pretty crazy but I will get to it as soon as I can! :)

  3. Another adorable post. Can I ask what program(s) you use to make posts look like this with the dots, neat fonts etc??

  4. Thanks so much for this post! I love getting makeup advice from Cara! You always look so stunning, so I may have to try your recommendations in addition to all the products she’s convinced me to try!!!

    1. Thanks for your sweet comment! Isn’t Cara amazing? I will trust anything she says!! :)

    1. Aw thank you!! And yeah I really love it! Plus Sephora has an amazing return policy so if you don’t love it just take it back!

    1. You are the sweetest. Loved wearing my MAJ tee today.. felt like a freaken million bucks.

  5. oooo don’t you just love brushes that buffs and does wonders?? I’ll have to give doublewear a go… I’m always so scared to try heavier coverage foundations since my skin is so acne prone! Would you say your skin is on the dry side or normal or…? It must be really good since it can survive the desert heat where you live girl! Sydney is warming up so I’m on the hunt for something that is definitely sweat proof. Thanks for sharing love!

    1. My skin is oily not dry but honestly I use so little of it that it doesn’t feel heavy at all!! I would honestly just give it a try but I would only use it if you have a good buffing brush!

  6. Lovely post as always, Amber! Thank you so much for sharing. Could you do a post about the products you use in your morning and night routine? I am struggeling so much with my skin at the moment and get really insecure about it :( Would love to try some new products who help you and your skin xx

    1. Thanks girl!! And yes that will be my next one for sure!! I hate when skin goes through those weird phases :( try Arcona toner pads!

  7. I love Cara!!! I wish I knew her! But I just feel like I do from all her videos. Most days when I am looking for a new make up look I head to her blog or YouTube channel.
