Get some Monistat Chafing gel to use as your primer. Six bucks. Miracle worker.

I got mine at Target right next to all the other Monistat products. LOL. No, it does not make your skin look oily. It’s the same formula as Smashbox photo primer.

Walgreens… or anywhere that has a feminine prodcut aisle

I used Smashbox photofinish foundation & concealor

Mix the Chaffing gel WITH the foundation before application.. I didn’t have any issue with shine or oiliness

Bare Mineral’s Powder Foundation (I liked it better than a regular powder)

and Bridesmaid or Best Man Warmth for my cheeks

a drug store blush for the apples of my cheeks

cheap eyeshadow palette in blues (with the primer it went on great)

and the Make up Forever HD microfinish powder

My makeup looked great and with the finishing powder stayed ALL day! =)

What I Used and similar products:

– Make Up For Ever’s Mat Velvet + Foundation — Revlon Colorstay is just as good 

– Make Up For Ever’s HD Microfinish Powder — e.l.f.  has a similiar product that works well… they sell 9 times as much for 1/3 the price

– Monistat Chafing Gel as a primer — its the same formula as Smashbox Photo Finish and way, way cheaper

– Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara  — Maybelline One by One is my favorite drugstore brand

– Palladio Herbal Eyeshadow Primer — I think this works better than Urban Decay’s Primer Potion, you can get it at Sally’s Beauty Supply

– Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush — it claims to last 12 hours and really, truly does 

– Maybelline Hip Cream Eyeliner 

– Rimmel Moisture Lipstick in Coral Shimmer w/ NARS Orgasm Lip Gloss on top

I love NARS blush in orgasm. its flattering to every skin tone and has a nice shimmer to it! I also use a pale pink pencil by benefit called eye bright in the inside corners and outside corners of my eye. it works miracles!
