The Perfect Foundation for Night or Day

Head’s up foundation for day and night doesn’t exactly exist, so I create it!

My perfect everyday foundation and my perfect event foundation both begin with the same product- Stila One Step Foundation.

I’ll begin with why this is a perfect option for events or evening makeup, because shockingly it’s simpler than the routine for my daytime wear – this little tube is a primer, concealer and foundation all in one, hence the name One Step. This stuff is serious business, it covers perfectly and has amazing long wear life on your face. I can slap this stuff on at 6pm for a cocktail party and still take a perfect photo at 2am if applied correctly.

So, what exactly does it mean to apply correctly? After all, makeup shouldn’t be rocket science.

Wash your face

Exfoliate your face

HEAVILY moisturize your face with your daytime moisturizer

Apply your One-Step, gradually at first, then add layers on where needed


The only downside to this product is that it can be a little thick and dry if you’re not moisturized properly, so really lay it on ladies. After that I’ll set it with a little powder, and then bronze/contour the rest of my face. Make sure to do that last step even if you don’t usually wear bronzer- the coverage on the one-step is so serious that it can make your face look a little one dimensional if you just leave it as is.

Stay tuned for part 2 where I follow up on how I use the One-Step for everyday wear.
