TUTORIAL: Full Coverage HD Foundation Routine [Photo Shoot & Event/Bridal Makeup] + Video Details

I recently discovered the magic of Graftobian HD Glamour Cremes through bridal makeup artists on Instagram, so I am very excited to share this review and tutorial video today. These 5-well palettes of richly pigmented and affordable full coverage foundations are definitely worthy of the hype and praise they have received on the web. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well they lasted and how smooth they appeared on film, considering the Glamour Cremes are of a thinner cream consistency. Do moisturize and prime the skin before application as well as set with powder for best high-definition results. The texture is unlike most designer base products, so just remember to gently stipple on the products with the MAC 130 over a tinted moisturizer or tiny bit of liquid foundation and then press (not wipe) the BeautyBlender across your face!

**The color behind this look was requested by a subscriber on Facebook. This brightening, more minimalist approach to color suits the heavier full coverage foundation look best. There is a lot of layering to create the base, so bear in mind this is NOT an everyday foundation routine.. it is ideal for special events such as photo shoots and weddings!**

  1. THANK YOU, I've been wanting to start a video portion to my blog and have a better "go-to" face for events with high chance of unexpected photography (aka all of my friends have hi-def cameras and ambush me with pictures in VERY revealing lighting). I'm so excited to try the Le Metier products, thanks again xoxo!

    1. You absolutely NEED these products! The Le Metier PV concealer is expensive, but it goes a long way and really helps blemishes. The LMdB liquid foundation does have a bit of SPF, so do warm up your face with a touch of all-over bronzer. Have fun!

  2. Can you please do full bridal make up tutorial?

  3. Hi,
    I'm thinking about buying the Graftobian HD creme palette in warm #2 as I have a medium skintone with yellow undertones. Regarding the setting powder in Banana Cream Pie, do you use it only to neutralize skin that has the tendency to have red or ruddy undertones? I don't have red undertones so I'm wondering if it would suit me. I'm also using the gold setting powder (a tiny bit yellow) from Make Up Atelier Paris so I thought the Banana Cream Pie would be the same thing.
