As much as we love our full-coverage foundations, there are definitely days when we want to skip them and let our skin ~breathe~. So when Barbie Imperial shared how she achieves her go-to foundation-free makeup look in her latest vlog, we were all ears! "Hindi ako mahilig mag foundation kapag lumalabas ako kasi medyo pawisin ako," she explained. We totally get you, Barbie!
Check out the actress' everyday makeup routine below—including the *exact* products she swears by:
Prep, prep, prep!
To keep her makeup from melting off, Barbie prepped her skin with this mattifying primer from Dior. According to the actress, "it's very gentle. Kinakapitan talaga ng makeup yung primer na 'to."ADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓

After priming her skin, Barbie went straight to concealing her blemishes. In the video, she opened up about having cystic acne and how it used to make her feel insecure. She recalled, "feeling ko hindi ako maganda so ang dami ko na trintry na gamot." But eventually, the 24-year-old learned to accept her acne: "Normal magka-pimple."ADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓Recommended Videos
When concealing her acne marks, Barbie used a concealer that was a bit lighter than her skin tone to reduce redness.
Then, she applied a darker concealer to her zits to minimize the appearance of the raised bumps.ADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓

Set the brows
Barbie is a big fan of ~bushy~ eyebrows. To achieve that, she brushed up her kilay and set them with a brow soap. After waiting for them to dry completely, she then filled them in with a brow pencil. "Sinusundan ko lang yung shape ng kilay ko," she shared.ADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓

Admittedly, Barbie said that she doesn't know how to contour her face, so she would usually just contour her nose to make it appear more defined. She also applied some highlighter on the tip and the bridge of her nose.ADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓
