Collage_3lva1zggmuxbewmapkwdzq20141231-2-1qibm68jpg?1420027471

Now that 2014 has ended and you have tried and tested many products it’s time to sit back and decide what has worked, what hasn’t and what should be added. My Face routine has changed maybe 3 or 4 times and all happened in 2014, I must confess I did not really have much of Face routine prior to 2014 or shall I say blogging. I used to just wash my face with whatever was in my bathroom or whatever worked for my mother. After I started blogging I started seeing how different people did theirs and thought why not me.

Last year I also introduced you to some amazing products I have been using like the OZ Naturals serums and eye gel and other Vitamin C serums which so far has worked wonders for me. Today I wanted to share with you a new routine I will be trying out for 2015 on top of my current Face routine. If you are like me and do not really wear makeup as much but want to have a flawless skin foundation routine when you do then try these steps below.


Step 1 – Erase pores

Benefit Cosmetics - The POREfessional 0.25 OZ Pore Minimizing Balm

I got my first test of benefits porefessional last year when I got it as a freebie from my UK Cosmo magazine and I have not looked back. I do not have that many pores but the little I have have been taken care of.

Step 2 – Prime skin

Maybelline - Lumi Touch Maybelline Dream Concealer

    Your skin looks amazing.. seems like a lot of products to use on your face. But then again I don’t know, I don’t use anything. I just have a simple wash I do every morning & night.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:28 am

      Thank you hun, its 7 products which i rarely use excluding the porefessional.

  2. January 10, 2015 / 8:56 am

    Gah, I’ve seen your photos- you don’t need all this crap!! lol Your skin is beautiful!
    For oily skin, I would suggest a charcoal soap. That’ll kick some serious ass and leave your skin squeaky clean without dryness 🙂

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:29 am

      hahaha thank you so much hun, its a lot of products but i dont wear them often maybe once in a blue moon when i have some occasion to attend then i make the effort otherwise its good old bare me.

    I am looking for some alternatives to what I’m currently using. I can’t afford to pay high prices. Some of these look like they would be better priced.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:29 am

      Most of these are nicely priced so you looking in right place

  4. January 9, 2015 / 3:33 pm

    You don’t actually put all those products on at one time, do you? I love the pore reduction product from benefits. I’ve tried that before. Have you tried the primer from Smashbox it’s pretty good. My favourite concealer remains Clinique. Nothing beats it.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:30 am

      Yes I put all these once in a blue moon and no i have not tried smashbox primer will check it out

    These sound like great tips for a flawless skin foundation. I don’t use to much makeup myself but I will have to look into so of these products like the Mac concealer. Thanks for sharing.

    I actually don;t wear makeup at all, but that pore eliminator sounds like it is pretty cool for people with issues. I didn’t even know they made such a thing 🙂

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:33 am

      I didnt know about porefessional until last year

  18. January 8, 2015 / 10:05 am

    The pore eliminator sounds amazing! Like you (used to) I don’t have much of a skincare routine- wash my face with a cleanser, then moisturize and foundation and that is really it for me. So many different products out there!

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:34 am

      That sounds like my normal day routine excluding the foundation as i dont wear it often

    Great routine Myrabev and you use a great mix of products too. I have The PoreFessional and never use it, I’ll have to start. I’d love to try the Stila primer, it looks like such a great product.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:34 am

      You so need to try the porefessional hun it’s great product

  20. January 8, 2015 / 5:54 am

    I’ve heard NOTHING but AMAZING things about that Stila – One Step Correct Color! I think it might be time for me to finally try it out for myself <3

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:35 am

      Let me know what you think when you do
