My Full Coverage Foundation Routine

Fine, I'll admit it. I had fairly good skin through most of my teenage years. I thought I got away with it until this past year when my skin decided NOW, at 25, it would erupt into big, painful blemishes all over my face.

Fantastic.  And with about a month until my wedding, I am NOT in the mood to fiddle with a new foundation routine.

Fortunately, with a bit of patience, research and tinkering, I found a combination of products and techniques that blend the foundation so seamlessly, its like second skin.  But a fabulous, flawless second skin.

Acne is something most of us will struggle with at some point in our lives.  It's life, we suck it up and move on.  It's caused by one or all of genetics, hormones, eating & sleeping habits and cleanliness.  Everybody's skin and health is different so its important to talk to a doctor and/or dermatologist you trust to find something that's right for you.  I hope you can pick up some ideas to incorporate into your own foundation routine!

Cover FX ClearPrep FX Primer
Rimmel 25 Hour Foundation

I can completely relate. I was fine in my teens and then I got to my mid-twenties and BAM.....acne. I think also wedding planning stress doesn't help either! You're only a month away now and time will only fly by faster. Hold on to the seat of your pants and enjoy the ride :)

You ladies should consider Arbonne! You'll notice results in 24 hours!

The RE9 Advanced line restores the pH balance in your skin, using only botanical based ingredients; NO mineral oil (derivative of gasoline), NO by products, NO waxes!!! It's swiss formulated, but made in the USA. So it adheres to the highest of the highest, standards in the industry.

I've been using Arbonne products for 6 years and have switching over to everything they offer!

Check it out... I'll never go back the mass manufactured products!

I've been using L'Bri skincare products for years. Their products are aloe based and have worked wonders for me. I still get an occasional hormonal flare-ups and I sometimes bring on flare-ups from picking (ugh) but I would absolutely recommend their products if you're interested in natural products.

I've used and loved Arbonne products in the past. I've thought about switching back but I'm too afraid to switch up my skincare routine at this point....

Do you have advice on really dark circles? They're hereditary and i've had them forever and a lot of concealers don't cover them up.

I know this is late and you've already had your wedding, but I'm 24 and found my skin was starting to get worse. So frustrating! I discovered Origins skin care products, and literally I saw a difference within 24 hours. Definitely worth a try! I started with the Pure Cream cleanser and Make a Difference Moisturizing lotion which you wipe off (apparently you're not supposed to use water when you wash your face at night because it encourages excess oil production).

Also, what is that nail polish!! Must have it =)
