I don’t like the feeling of too much makeup on my face. I also hate spending ages doing my makeup in the morning, mainly because I am not an early riser. I’m the person who has two alarms set and hits snooze on both of them a bunch of times until I finally groan and get out of bed.

Therefore, my makeup routine has to be fast and easy. Tom Ford has this traceless foundation stick. Easy peasy. First I make sure to moisturize with my Neutrogena Oil-Free with SPF 15. I use this moisturizer because it’s fairly inexpensive and comes with SPF. Plus, I can find it at any local store and I usually forget to buy it. It also works for me because my face tends to be oily, especially in the summer. The moisturizer makes Tom Ford stick glide along my face instead of getting stuck as I swipe.
I swipe the TF stick across my cheeks, chin, nose and forehead. To blend, I use a damp Beauty Blender. Using the beauty blender on my face also feels wonderful and cool, calming down the heat, since it’s summer. It covers quite nicely, check out the imperfections before and after. Also, fun fact, I didn’t use any photoshop aside from putting in the arrows and text.
In addition to this, I used Make Up Forever’s Ultra HD Concealer under my eyes, around my nose and again, over those pesky zits under my nose and on my chin. You can barely see them.
Right now I’m using this combo because it gets me out of the house fast. When my sister gave me the Tom Ford stick, i wasn’t sure if I would like it. Huge surprise to me that it’s now my go-to for concealing. In case you’re curious, here’s the info on my FOTD below. Some of the products have been discontinued (quel horror!) that’s why I’ve listed a similar item.
