Foundation Routine For Acne! Cover Pimples, Scars, Cystic Acne, Blackheads & Oil | Cassandra Bankson

Hey everyone so today I’m going to show you how I do my foundation routine and I am the most self-conscious person about my acne. I’ve told you about my acne so many times I’ve always gone over how terrible it is I know it doesn’t look like it but taking my makeup off is one of the most insecure things that I could probably do Fr me it’s gotten a lot better which is sad to say but I mean it’s a good thing to say but I mean it still looks awful so this is what I’m gonna show you guys what my face is like without makeup um I’m gonna show you guys how I apply my foundation so that I can look like this I’m also I’m in the living room today because I felt um I felt that it has better lighting than out where I used to do my videos so tell me if you guys like this or if you want me to go you know somewhere else so um I hope that this helps you if you guys have acne or even if you don’t have acne you just want really pretty skin um yeah I hope this works it won’t go over blush eyes lips nothing like that no contouring look at the contouring and highlighting video that I have I’ll post it in the bottom tab this is just how I do my foundation and it changes just about every month so I’m thinking I’m gonna keep updating these kind of when I update just to kind of show you guys but hopefully this helps you and hopefully you guys enjoy I’ll talk to you guys soon bye Here I am with no makeup no nothing no eyes and I feel really disgusting my nose is clogged up and it’s way too earlier for me um this is probably the most nerve-wracking thing that I could possibly do because it is my biggest insecurity this is my face um the sad part is that this is a lot better than it used to be um I mean it’s still all over my chest it’s all over my back um it’s just it’s everywhere and you can see it goes down my neck it’s like all the side even got on my ear I mean it’s been like this and it’s gotten a lot better but it’s still really really bad so that’s my biggest insecurity also I’m wearing my bathroom because I always find a way to spill makeup on myself so I need to wear this first so the first thing that I do is be I have extremely oily skin I take this it’s just the Smashbox and Smashbox anti-shine and what that does it basically stops you from getting oily and I tend to get oily like around my nose around a little bit more my cheese zone so I’m only gonna take about that much and I’m just gonna spread this everywhere that I need the oil to be sucked up and for me that’s basically my nose um yeah I mean I usually do it on my nose everyday sometimes in the cheese known it really depends on where you get shiny most often I’m just trying to get this makeup on as soon as possible so that you guys don’t have to like s just take a primer now you can use a definite multitude of primers I mean I have everything from you know so floor to bare essentials to Mac’s makeup forever there’s just such a multitude of what you can use but for me personally my favorite which has been my favorite for a while has been me Merivale primer by hourglass it’s got SPF protection and I put it on my face and it is just like rubbing pearls into your skin because it’s like velvet like I could just rub my face all day long and I always carry everything that I do down my neck just because well I have acne there the next thing I use is foundation and my foundation routine changes probably every month even though every week it’s nuts but recently I started off this month well it’s December now I started off November using this the lorac which I really really like but it is kind of heavy but recently I’ve been using where is it pretty recently I’ve been using a couple different things and the two that I have been hooked on are these the HD foundations and I think these are my all-time favorites I’m guessing then we need these for the rest of my life and a month they’ll be different but I use the 125 in the 120 that was on the 130 for a little bit they come out just like this and all you need is two pumps and you just want to spread that kind of all over your face I kind of dotted on I’ll try to get close to her fifties here for you I try just kind of dot it on and I love using my fingers for foundation um a lot of people use brushes I love brushes I’ll do one on brushes soon soon I’ll do one on brushes soon just to kind of show you guys how but um I absolutely love using my hands because I just feel that it is I don’t know I just get such better coverage and then I can like add on top if you want to layer your foundation mix some of it with fix+ spray from Mac and that way it’ll dry quicker so you can just Pat on more layers and again I like a very full coverage so we just want to basically blend that all together and this is the 120 after I take that I’m gonna take the 125 as you can see it’s like a slightly darker color and I’m gonna put this more on the outer realms of my face and down my neck and the reason why is because the lighter color in the middle of our face is really gonna highlight that and I always do highlighting and contouring so it really just adds to that glamorous effect um I really usually like to wear like a headband or something to kind of protect my hair but it’s way too early in the morning so I completely forgot to do that um also make sure you get the bottoms of your nails so that you don’t have like five different colors going on there I also like to get it over my lips so that way I can shape my lips and I take them off basically um when you shape your lips you just use a q-tip and wherever the foundation is it looks like your skin and wherever else it just looks like your lips so I know that I look really crazy right now but it works really really well so I’m gonna use Mac’s um studio finish concealer in NC next I’m gonna use mac studio finish concealer in NC 30 yeah sorry guys my camera battery died but um basically what I did I used my Mac concealer I dotted it on my problem areas not as much on my neck but as you can see the primaries where they used to be and I just emulsified them and kind of blended up in with my finger if you use like a warm brush even your warm finger it works a lot better and like I said I usually like using my hands with foundation I’ll do an updated routine with brushes hotter um the next thing I’m going to do is take two different powders the powders kind of set the foundation because the foundations a little bit wet and it makes you look a little bit oily um so what I’m gonna do I’m gonna start off with what is this I’m just gonna start with a brush and I’m actually gonna go in with two different colors the first one I’m using um it’s that nc5 and what I’m gonna do I’m gonna kind of rub it like this in a circular motion so I get on the brush I’m just gonna Pat this this is the lighter color for me so I’m just gonna Pat this I’m gonna kind of tilt my head back so it kind of all stays there and I’m just gonna Pat this on kind of the kind of inner triangle of my face and I talked about this in highlighting and contouring so if you guys haven’t seen that really go watch it cuz it’s what I do after this but yeah basically you put this on the part of your face that you need it to be lightest which should be the very middle and I tilt my head back so it all stays there until I can get evenly blended the next thing I’m using is the Smashbox halo and this is in the shade of what is this light and I just got this one I’ve been using it a lot though because I loved the fair one but they were out of it so I just use the light now um but what I do it kind of comes up like this and you can kind of just shave it off if you guys see that basically the powder comes out once you turn it so I’m gonna take a little bit on the top of my brush and I’m just gonna put this all over the outside of my face this would be kind of the lower cheeks kind of up a little bit on our temples and then all over our neck and chest thing i’m going to do is take one of my favorite powders it is the makeup for everyone this is the HD micro finished powder and you should probably put this on with a different brush but i’m gonna use this one for the sake of saving brushes because i have to go today and you makeup on people but as you can see this is just the finest powder in the entire world it is it is just wispy in every way you see that um and what this is this is a setting powder and i’m going to use this to just kind of set both my foundation and my powder because the powders from Mac and Smashbox are a little bit thicker so this one is so ultrafine that this will get into all the little spaces that the other ones missed and it smells really fresh I don’t know it just smells like clean laundry yeah so that kind of ensures that our entire face is set happy mac fix+ spray and I absolutely love this spray it is a dream come true I’m gonna hold it just about a foot or 16 inches away from my face I’m gonna close my eyes and spray and like I said you can also mix this with a little bit of foundation you just pump the foundation on your hand spray this on mix with your brush and put it on with a foundation brush I’ll show you guys how to do that and like I said tutorial with brushes coming up and what that will do is help it so that you can layer on more layers of foundation um but that is what I do I’m gonna let it kind of dry and voila I have somewhat clearer looking skin than you guys! I go into my contouring and more highlighting go watch that if you haven’t seen it already oh and then I also take a q-tip and take off the foundation for my lips so you guys can like see my mouth and what the shaping is I’m actually gonna show you that in another video I’d be like lip shaping but um yeah so stay tuned guys!
