Every girl needs to have a solid foundation/face routine. One that doesn't feel overdone or look overdone. It should be not caked on or feel weighed down. It should be light, and enhance your natural skin without feeling 'covered up.' If you want to see how to find the perfect foundation shade for you, click here to see that blog! 

Over the years, my routine has changed and adapted. Not only due to formulas changing, but also due to (gasp) age. When I first started wearing makeup I was about 14 years old. I started, mostly, with eyeliner and mascara. Once I got a little bit older (16+) I started wearing foundation. Of course, at that age, we generally don't know too much about skin care, application or colour matching. If I could go back to my younger self, I would lay off the foundation and allow my skin to breathe. 

I often see clients with gorgeous skin that is in amazing condition. The reason? Nine times out of 10 it is because they have barely ever used foundation. Now I use it to even out my skin tone, to cancel out redness and get rid of those nasty under eye circles. Not to 'cover up.' 

This routine (featured in the video below -  COMING SOON!) is done in very light, even layers. It still allows the natural look of my skin to show through but evens out my skin tone and provides the confidence I need to put my best face forward. It can literally be accomplished in five minutes, which is perfect for the gal on the go!
