SHOOT DAY NEUTRAL MAKEUP ROUTINE
As a blogger, shooting for multiple hours; and in multiple outfits in a day has become necessary. Whether I shoot longer just to find that perfect photo or ‘cos I’m changing into a thousand outfits, it’s important that my makeup stays put through the chaos and matches all my outfits.
Here’s a breakdown of my quick 30-minutes routine that stands the test of time.
Base: Illuminate & Prime
I use a couple of primers depending on what I need for my skin at that moment. In the winter, I lean more towards moisturizing primers like the Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Primer. I was recently introduced to the Motives Complexion Perfection Face Primer and it’s a strong contender for my fave. It not only keeps the oil at bay but the velvety finish is divine! For glow-y skin, I wear the Glamglow Mega Illuminating Moisturizer before my foundation.
Foundation & Concealer
I love full coverage foundations because I have acne scars. My all time favourite is the Esteé Lauder Double Wear Foundation
To highlight some parts of my face, I use the Urban Decay’s Weightless Concealer in shade Dark Golden. This is a shade lighter and I love that it’s also lightweight & hydrating.
Powder & Bronzer
I set my face with two loose powders. Sacha buttercup translucent powder for the highlighted parts & Motives translucent loose powder in dark, all over my face. Setting with loose powder increased the longevity of wear throughout the day. I went from a solid 4 hrs of wear to 7 or 8 hours without smile lines, creasing or blotting.
To add definition & warmth to my face, I contour lightly with the Covergirl Queen Ebony Bronzer.

Have an amazing week ahead!
