Hi! Just a quick post to show that you can wear foundation layers and not be overly made up.
I was just playing around and trying different foundation techniques, in particular BB cream type foundation over a primer and then contouring creams (but almost as a foundation overtop the rest).
The base was Kat Von D's Lock-It Hydrating Primer (very lightweight like a day fluid, but you have to place it quickly as it feels a tad tacky if it's moved around a lot).
Then I used a staple, Iman's Skin Tone Evener BB Crème (Sand Light). It's a really good BB that I'd recommend, not heavy and giving light to medium coverage. She really has some great products, though not all of them are a hit, but I've gotten a few that I'd repurchase (like the lip glosses and the BB cream) , and that says a lot with the choices available worldwide.
And the surprise of the day was Anatasia's Contour Cream Kit (Medium), the colors Cream, Banana & Chocolate work well for me, and Cream could be my Spring foundation color, so I was very pleased.
Last, but very important in the routine, one of the very best powders, as you can't beat the price for the quality, RCMA's No-color Powder. I can put this on under my eyes over concealer, then go back over it again with concealer and still look good. It doesn't settle in your lines if you pat it on and then brush it off. I'm sure even more mature women (of which I am) could bake with it too, brush it off and look good.
So I hope you enjoy this look as much I did!

Have a great hump day! Interesting fact : "The Creation narrative in the Hebrew Bible places the creation of the Sun and Moon on "the fourth day" of the divine workweek." (Source: Wikipedia)
Yes, that's Wednesday!
