Good Skin Days

Once my skin calmed down from the inevitable mess that comes after flying, I've found myself being able to string together multiple "good skin days" in a row. Meaning minimal base, a touch of concealer, and whatever eye/lip/cheek combo I'm feeling that day. This is rare for me, to say the least. Once I'm certain that this isn't a fluke, I'll share my most recent skincare routine and discoveries, but in fear of possibly jinxing my delightfully blemish-free face I will wait for further confirmation and reassurance. I will, however, share some of my current face base routine... which features something new and stupid expensive. 
My current favourite FOTD products - Chantecaille's Just Skin, NARS Creamy Concealer, Bobbi Brown Corrector, and Hourglass Veil Primer
I had been hemming and hawing over this purchase for a while, never actually doing it because for some reason Chantecaille is only available at counters in Canada, and those are very few and far between. So when I happened across a counter in Saks at the UTC Mall in Sarasota... well... things happened. Just Skin happened. I obviously bought the shade Alabaster, which actually isn't that pale, but it's nice and sheer so it works for me. I haven't been using it long enough to have made up my mind as to whether it's worthy of a repurchase - it was $67 USD - but I wanted to share the fact that it's here and being tested rigorously :)

The other bits you've all seen before: Bobbi Brown corrector in porcelain bisque for my ridiculous undereye circles, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the lightest shade, and my old faithful Hourglass Veil mineral primer. I keep going back to these products no matter how far I stray. 

Aside from these four core products, I usually sweep on a powder, either my Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder in Ethereal Light or my Tarte loose setting powder. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect setting powder, so any suggestions are welcome! I admittedly feel a bit half-arsed for this post, as I don't have a full face photo to actually show these products at work. My excuse is that I've totally re-done and moved my filming/blogging/photo area and have yet to work out most of the kinks. Please be patient with me. I feel like I say that a lot, but I really do appreciate your understanding :)
