Use a small amount of loose translucent powder. I like to do this with a powder puff, and gently roll the loose powder over the center part of my face first then around the perimeter of the face. Definitely, less is more here, just pat in enough powder to take away any shine on the face but the powder should look undetectable once applied. I always use my holy grail Laura Mercier setting powder.
Now for setting spray. This is your extra insurance product! You want to apply this over the entire face and let dry completely before moving on to the next step. I like to spray mine in an X motion than a crisscross motion. I enjoy using the Morphe Continuous Mist spray because it applies in an aerosol form which seems to apply more evenly than the spray bottles.
It’s time to prime! Pick your favorite skin primer. I’m using the Rare Beauty Pore Diffusing Skin Primer. Use this to cover your entire face and rub it in with your fingers until it sinks in nicely. Again, this needs to dry for at least 30+ seconds before you move on to the next step.
Applying your foundation with a brush instead of your fingers will keep your foundation looking more airbrush-like and non-streaky! I also applied my concealer right after this step as well.
If you have extra oily skin, you could go back and repeat step 2 and roll in a little bit of extra translucent powder on top of all of this to set once more. But I have mature dry skin, so I stop after step 5. Layering these products in this way will no doubt shock you into how GOOD and FLAWLESS your skin will appear. Plus, your looks will stay locked and loaded all day long!
