Put the Base on your Face - Review of Smashbox HD Healthy F/X foundation

Hey my Lovelies. Welcome to another installment of my P.O.V.. Today I am going to talk about one of my current foundations, Smashbox HD Healthy F/X  Foundation.

********** Clause. I purchased these myself from smashbox myself***************

My foundation routine is Smashbox Photo Finish primer, Smashbox High Definition Concealer in medium  and Smashbox HD healthy F/X Foundation.
Photo finish foundation primer

HD Concealer in Medium

HD Healthy F/X Foundation in Medium

1st- I put on primer. The primer helps the foundation last all day and it feels amazing on your face. Also, primer is a great barrier so you do not put the foundation directly on your skin.  The primer is extremely light weight.

here is my concealer
2nd - Concealer for my dark circles and any spots that may need a little hiding. Even though it is in medium, it is still lighter than my foundation. Smashbox has a wonderful option in choosing your concealer . YOu can click on each shade to find out what suits you and your skins undertones. While I do like this concealer, You do have to be careful not to put on too much as you will be blending for a hot minute.

3rd - Once I have concealed my dark circles and such, I apply the HD foundation.
There is my foundation
I do not put a lot on my hand And I do the four dots with my Sigma F84 angled Kabuki brush.
I so love this brush.
Now when I say four dots, I mean forehead, each cheek and chin and then proceed to blend.

Why I do love the Sigma F84 is it helps blending foundation so easily. Being angled, just helps you reach all the corners and contours of your lovely face.

Now once I am done, my face is pretty polished without feeling cakey.

The HD Healthy F/X Foundation  is a very light yet effective foundation. I will be looking for a full coverage but I am not in a rush since I love my freckles and I want them to show through.

The cost involved for each is as follows :

Photo finish Primer (which is for  perfect skin) is $36. Smashbox does have a perfect primer finder to help with determining the best primer for your skin type.

High Definition Concealer Is $20.

High Definition Healthy F/X  UVA/UVB SPF 15 Oil Free is $38.

I submit for your trying approval the Smashbox Foundation Routine.

Be Gorgeous. Be Wonderful. Be You.
