My Current Foundation Routine *Video*

*FTC Disclaimer Thank you to Coeur Marketing LLC  for sponsoring this post!
Hello beauty babes, thanks so much for stopping by! Today I bring to you my current foundation routine, watch the video at the end of this post to see it in action. I have never really shared my foundation routine with you before, because I am always switching up what I do and use. Recently though I have discovered a few new products and even rediscovered some products in my current makeup collection that I have really been loving to use in combination with each other! I have found that this foundation routine gives me a gorgeous "your skin but better" look. My face doesn't look perfectly flawless, but I feel it looks close enough to "flawless" while still looking very natural. 

Not only does my skin look great and healthy, but it also FEELS soft and smooth. I have found that because of that, the rest of my makeup applies much easier too. And I've noticed my makeup looks fresher for a lot longer too. ♥ I have not quite singled out a certain product to attribute all this "greatness" to, or if its just the combination of them all. But what I do know is that I have been LOVING this routine, and all of these products together lately. All the products used in the video are listed below (some of them are not pictured).
Now before we get into my foundation routine video - I wanted to talk about that makeup sponge you see. I was very intrigued as well as skeptical about this sponge. So I was very excited to receive it {at a discount} to review.  Most of you probably already know, that I absolutely LOVE my real techniques makeup sponge! I never thought I would love anything more than that... Until I tried THIS sponge. Its truly heavenly. I love how soft it is - makes me feel like I am applying my makeup with clouds. ♥ Not only that, but it provides flawless application of my foundation, concealer and even powder. Where as using a makeup brush, or your fingers even can sometimes leave slight lines/streaks... This sponge does not! It really helps you get very nice even coverage. I thoroughly enjoy and now prefer to use this sponge and definitely recommend it!

What's awesome is that I believe this could be a dupe for the more expensive, highly popular Beauty Blender that every beauty guru raves about. I don't personally own one, but from what I have seen, read and heard about the BB - this sponge seems right on par with it, but for less money - which is always nice! You know me, I'm all about getting a good deal! 
Another thing I really appreciate about this sponge is that it does come in little travel case to protect it on the go. This way it doesn't get ruined by anything else. And the lid of the case even has small vent holes in it so you can put your sponge in it right away to dry and not worry about it getting mold/mildew as things that stay wet can without fresh air.
