TUTORIAL | GLOWING Foundation Routine

10:29 PM

Hey everyone! I wanted to stop in and share my latest video with you showcasing how I achieve a radiant foundation look. With the popularity of K-beauty and a focus on skin looking healthy and luminescent versus the cakey, matte look of the past (Soooo over that. Anyone else?) I feel like there's been a resurgence of the glow.

I use a super simple trick plus a couple of easy-to-use products in this tutorial:


You can easily incorporate this into your regular routine with the mix-in trick, or if you like to be more exact you can do a layer of your regular foundation first, then use the mix just where you like it but for lazy me, I find the exact powdering to be enough for me.

Also, if you tend to have oily skin you can still achieve the glowing look, just use a more matte translucent powder and experiment with different foundation primers before you begin. I also found that using an oil-absorbing sheet immediately after powdering will absorb any access moisture within the foundation for longer. Since the "glow" is within the product, you should still retain the radiant finish.

I hope you guys found this helpful and I wanted to give a huge thank you to Burberry and Sephora for partnering with me for this video! Honestly, it's so exciting to finally see Burberry beauty at Sephora now after I've been fawning over it for the last couple of years!

Readers, let me know if you prefer a matte or glowing foundation in the comments and if you have any tips to share for achieving a luminescent look!

  5. I am SO SO SO happy for you!!! Congrats! Your preg test was a BFP aka big fat positive! My baby girl was just born this past Thanksgiving. I'm a first time mom, Korean and a been following you for many years now! Being pregnant, the whole birthing process, the confusion during the post partum period... it is ALL such a beautiful, messy, emotional, difficult, loving experience. I wouldn't change ANY of it. You are going to be an awesome mom!

    You're going to get a lot of advice thrown at you but one HUGE thing I am glad I looked into was natural labor. Know ALL your options. Watch the Business of Being Born and Mama Sherpas. Check out birthwithoutfearblog.com. Read a little into the differences of lamaze, Bradley method, the epidural/c-section rates of where you plan to deliver at, group beta strep, spinningbabies.com (if your baby isn't head down as you progress), babywearing, etc. Look into home births, water birthing/laboring, having a doula or a midwife. Definitely suggest you and Ben take some pregnancy classes together. Look for local birthing community Facebook pages to join.

    I had my baby up here at Sutter Davis in Northern CA.WONDERFUL birthing center. I labored in a water tub, had a midwife for the delivery. It was the most beautifully painful experience I've ever had! My husband even got to "catch" our daughter! I can't wait to see your little one at the end of all this!

  6. HI Jen, I wanted to know what camera you use to shoot you video and what editing software do you use to edit your videos.

  7. Hey Jen, how different will ochre 12 and ochre 20 be?

  8. You are so beautiful! I am half Korean. My skin is atrocious. Blotchy. Hyper pigmentation. My eyelashes are short and straight. Ugh! I find BB cream does not provide enough coverage so use Estée Lauder Double Wear as I have a super oily t-zone but then I have a matte look which I think makes me look older. I don't use powder except to set concealer under my eyes. Do you have any suggestions?
