My #MOTD ~ Foundation & Contouring

So, yesterday I shared with you the new-to-me colors and brands of eyeshadows and lip colors I recently played with to create this daytime look.  Today, I want to talk about the products and techniques I used for foundation and contouring to create the rest of this look!

First, I applied CoverGirl's foundation all over using the silicone applicator.

One of the goodies that came in my first Influenster VoxBox was this new product from CoverGirl called Ultra Smooth Foundation.  (So, I got this item for free for review purposes.) It comes with this odd little silicone applicator.

At first, I really didn't know what I thought about this whole package.  But after using it just once, I am totally convinced that this is an amazing pair of products!

I love the consistency and color of the foundation.  The applicator works wonderfully!  Plus, it gives me the perfect amount of coverage.  We all know how hard that is to find in a foundation, right? 

Next, I applied bronzer using Beauty Junkees Angled Kabuki Brush (affiliate link) with BareMinerals Bronzer under my cheek bones.  

I followed up with adding BareMinerals Blush to my cheeks with the Bellang√© Brush & Bronzer Brush.  

Finally, I used BareMinerals Mineral Veil and matching brush to blend out the whole look while creating a soft finish.

I hope that you've enjoyed this mini-tutorial!  Happy Contouring!
