My Foundation Routine + Highlighting + Contouring

So this is how I have been applying my foundation lately (whenever i actually want to wear foundation). I prefer to mix the Match Master Foundation with a moisturizer because it can be very drying on my normal to dry skin. Which isn't cute or flattering. I don't go to overboard with highlighting and contouring as i have in the past, but now i just like for things to be a little more simple. Most of the time I'm in school and running errands so I like to get a nice flawless canvas so even if my eyes or lips aren't too fancy my face will still look gorg!

Products used:
-my moisturizer of choice (helps add moisture to the foundation and lightens my foundation so that it matches my neck. my face is darker than my neck so this helps it match perfectly!)
-MAC match master foundation "7.0"
-Hard Candy Glow All the Way Bronzer (adds a gorgeous glow to the foundation)
-NYC Loose Powder "translucent"
-L'Oreal True Match Powder "w7" (loooove how flawless this powder looks)
-MAC Studio Finish concealer "nw40" (matches my skin perfectly and evens out any areas of discoloration or blemishes)
-NYC concealer in jar "tan" (a really great highlighter; not too light, not too dark)
-elf Mist & Fix (Helps take away that cakey look. Sometimes I use Fix+, but lately I've been using the elf spray more often).
