Beauty: Coverage Basics

Finding a great beauty routine is ever-changing. As styles come and go, so do beauty fads. I have extremely fair skin so finding foundation and cover-up that matches my skin tone can be difficult. Over the years I've been lucky to find a few brands that always work - I have my Mom and Aunts to thank for this. I know I won't always use these products, but I know Bobbi Brown, Clinique, and Laura Mercier will always be in my makeup bag. 

Bobbi Brown BB Cream is my everyday foundation. It has a light coverage, but enough weight that it stays throughout they day. The additional moisturizers and SPF help shield skin from everyday damages that a traditional foundation cannot supply. This is one of the only BB creams to match my skin tone. So, if you have fair skin please give this product a try. 

Clinique Airbrush Illuminator Concealer covers all of my late nights. This under eye concealer is light enough that it does crease in fine lines, and the light-diffusing properties remove any pesky dark circles. Plus, it comes in a variety of shades (something difficult to find in under eye concealer) so you  can find the shade perfect for your. Another perk is that the brush applicator makes for easy on early mornings. 

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick I wore this foundation on my wedding day. It provides great coverage, without looking caked-on. I find it a little heavy for an everyday foundation, but now use it as cover-up. Plus, it is great to have on hand if I ever need thicker coverage. 

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is my perfect primer. With fair skin I worry about too much sun exposer. Applying this primer not only reassures my skin is protected, but that my makeup goes on smoothly.
