Starting off with the base, I applied a primer before foundation. Since I’ve moved to a place with a drastically different climate, I’m finding that my makeup tends to go blotchy around the cheeks, and primer helps everything apply smoothly. For foundation, I used Clinique BB Cream. No clue why they called it a BB cream, because it certainly is not. It’s a rather thick, medium coverage foundation. It was actually given to me by a friend who had bought it whilst looking for lighter coverage. Oh well, more makeup for me!
