Concealer & Foundation Routine.. & some ?s

Diorskin Nude Skin Perfecting Hydrating ConcealerCurrently, my daily concealer/ foundation

routine is pretty simplistic. First, I start

with concealer, this one to be precise:

Dior Diorskin Nude Skin Perfecting Hydrating Concealer

*I apply this to my "trouble" spots
and under my eyes

bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation

Second, and lastly, I apply this

foundation all over my face:

& Wa-la, I am done!!

HD Invisible Cover FoundationHowever, I want to change my routine up a bit. For one, I love the Dior concealer, however as I am aware right now, their brand tests on animals and I do not want to support this practice by purchasing their products. Secondly, I want to try this product SO bad:
 It is a liquid foundation (I have never used liquid foundation before) and therefore I need to alter my routine.

With this product, I will need a setting powder for on top, I am
thinking either:

HD Microfinish Powder                          

Make Up For Ever HD             Chanel Poudre Universelle
Microfinish Powder                  Compact Natural Finish           
                                               Pressed Powder

Have any of you tried either product, which one's better!?

Photo Finish Foundation Primer To Go

Lastly, I will be purchasing

this primer to try out-- I heard

that it is AMAZING!!

Also, I plan to purchase a new concealer, I am always on the search for one I like. Which one do you use??

What is your concealer/
foundation routine!?
Do you use liquid, powder, etc.??

  1. I like using a mixture of BB creams because they blend really well with my skin. I did not know that Dior tests on animals! :( boo! I like Mac's Studio Sculpt Foundation. I think it works great :)

  2. everyday i use a powder....i love the este lauder so ingenious powder...

  3. I love barbara dailey #s concealer for tesco. Sounds cheap but it's so amazinmg. enter my giveaway? x hivennn.

  4. aww I didn't know Dior does animal testing, the thought makes me a lil sad :(

    & I love SATC! :D I own both 1 & 2 and force Minh to watch them with me all the time! haha it never gets old. Do you have movies that you watch over and over?

    I also used to watch Princess Diaries 24/7 in high school! haha I'm a nerd! I can't wait to see Ann Hathaway's new movie Love & Other Drugs, we were supposed to go last night but we missed our showing! lol
