Do you want to achieve that perfect complexion that still looks natural and flawless? Well look no further than this 3 step routine for a flawless base to achieve the ‘No makeup, makeup look’ with ease.

Step 1. 

Vitamin enriched Face Base

Prep the skin and create a smooth, hydrated base with Bobbi's weightless cream. An essential first step before applying makeup. This oil-free, face formula, enriched with Shea Butter, instantly hydrates, softens, and cushions skin.

Working as a model and business owner I need makeup to stay on and last all day. I did an entire shoot and worked up until late in the evening for the business with this as my base and never had a break out once. It smells amazing, goes on like a dream and is the perfect base for make up. This is the product dreams are made of!

step 2.

Skin Long Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15+ 

A full coverage, natural matte foundation that blends seamlessly into skin for breathable, skin-perfecting coverage that looks fresh from sunrise to sunset.” In essence, the dream for anyone desiring no nonsense coverage but with a strong aversion to cake-face.

It’s definitely buildable, and evens skin out nicely, but you’ll need to go in with a concealer afterwards to address blemishes and dark spots. As for all day wear, in conjunction with the face base I found I didn’t need to touch up but other than the odd bit of spot-correction my skin still looked smooth and velvety without any chalkiness.

Step 3.

Instant Full Cover Concealer

Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer is a concealer with a concentrated, highly-pigmented coverage that visibly brightens dark circles and softens hollows and tired lines. The full-coverage, under eye concealer has a weightless feel and natural skin finish.

To me it’s almost as if they melted down the Creamy Concealer formula and poured it into a tube. The main difference is the fact that this formula is a little thinner and a little lighter but the emollient or tacky formula is much the same. It’s still thick but a lot thinner than the potted formula and not necessarily creamy but more emollient or as some people describe it, tacky or sticky. The tackiness does work in your favor as it prevents it from creasing and allows it to wear long and repel water or sweat.
