In today’s post I’ve included the best primers, foundations, concealers and setting products. These are the staples I always go back to for my everyday makeup look.
I like to keep my base as lightweight as possible so my skin can breathe and often look for multi-taskers. The Bobbi Brown Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer is my go-to for a primer + moisturizer in one. It works well with a wide range of foundation formulas. Can’t rave enough about it!
Also love the Tatcha Liquid Silk Canvas which a lighter version of their classic Silk Canvas. The Liquid Silk Canvas is the one I prefer, it makes the skin look smooth and minimizes my pores. Foundation adheres well to the skin with this one!
My most-used foundation is the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. It’s the best one for natural medium coverage with the perfect glow. It has enough pigment to even out the skin and just the right amount of luminosity!
For a lightweight base the Fenty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint is another favorite. It’s what I would want in a tinted moisturizer but with a little more pigment and not as dewy (which is perfect for me). If you’re looking for a nice everyday base for spring to summer with light coverage but enough to smooth out the skin, check this one out. Wearing Shade 10 below.
Two new foundations I’ve been loving this year are the NARS Light Reflecting Advanced Skincare Foundation and the Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation. Both have a skincare component to the formula. The NARS offers a bit more coverage on my skin, but both are really beautiful formulas I’ve used a lot this year.
Highlighters / Bronzer
To enhance the complexion the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter is hands down the best product I’ve tried. I own this in multiple shades but use Shade 3 and 4.5 the most (also available in travel-sized minis). It’s a versatile multi-tasker you can use under foundation to add a glow or as a subtle highlighter on the cheekbones or anywhere you want a highlight.
The Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Bronzing Drops are essential in my routine for a truly natural bronzed look. I mix it in with my foundation to add a little warmth and glow.
For concealing, if I had to use one the rest of my life it would be the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. I’ve used this for years (my match is Ginger) and it’s the best creamy under eye brightener that blends well, looks natural and lasts all day.
To set you can use your regular loose or pressed powder, but I also really love the Pat McGrath Sublime Perfection Blurring Under-Eye Setting Powder to lock concealer and other cream products under the eye into place.
Powder / Setting
Last I have a roundup of my top setting products. I always set my cream base with a powder to help extend the wear and set everything. The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder is the best blurring setting pressed powder I’ve tried! I’ve gone through so many of these.
I also love the NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Powder. It’s like magic on the skin for me! Blurs pores, smooths skin while being completely transparent. They have it in a translucent shade but it’s also available in tinted options as well.
For loose powder it doesn’t get more classic than the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I alternate between the Translucent shade or Honey.
To set makeup or refresh my look the two best setting sprays I’ve used are the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray and Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray. Both help give the skin a refreshed set look – so it’s not too powdery looking.
You can find all of my favorites and staples at Sephora during the Spring Savings Event. It’s a great time to restock your staples or try something new! If you’re looking for a good base to try I hope you found this roundup helpful!
