its all about the foundation!

hey guys,

finding the right foundation for your skin type has got to be one of the hardest choices a girl can make, especially since there are so many different products on the market today. One that doesn’t make you break out, one that doesn’t make you look like an oompa-loompa, one that doesn’t make your skin look dried out and caked, one that actually stays put, and your face doesn’t eat up, and finally one that has the right amount of coverage.

i myself prefer full coverage. not that i need it, i just figure if I’m gonna wear something then it might as well make me look flawless. i like my foundations to have build-able coverage because my powder is full coverage already. unless its a sweats n t-shirt kind of a day, then ill suffice with tinted moisturizer.

Right now I’m using a few different foundations.  Make Up For Ever HD in #127, Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear in #3.1, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour full coverage foundation in medium, Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in intensity #3, and last but not least i love combining Nars Sheer Matt in Stromboli with MAC Studio Fix.


I recommend this for normal to dry skin. might make you break out. discontinue use if it does.


I recommend smashbox for all skin types. if your oily in the t-zone carry around with you blotting powder. the formula is kind of creamy, so if you don’t like the feeling of heavy foundation the steer clear.


LOVE this foundation. make sure to moisturizer well prior to applying. it may seem a bit dry after application. the coverage is wonderful and it doesn’t make you look caky at ALL!


After using ester lauder double wear for years when going out…i finally realized that i wanted a foundation that stayed on just as long and looked just as great for every day use just without the heaviness. So i found double wear light. make sure to moisturize prior to application, and apply it quick. it tends to dry fast on the skin. Gives a great glow.


so i love the coverage of MAC but hate wearing it on its own…it has not umph! and i love the glow of Narz and how it sets, but i don’t like the coverage. So one day i decided to mix them together…and walah! i looked fantabulous! i get asked what I’m wearing on my face a lot when i combine these 2.

hope you guys enjoyed the post! Feel free to leave comments or ask questions. Just click REPLY on the bottom.

Goodnight…

Some of my favorite brushes!

hey everyone,

per your requests…i have will be sharing some of my favorite brushes.

Laura Mercier Powder Brush

Laura Mercier has the most amazing Powder Brush. Yes i have 4 of them…just in case they discontinue the brush or i lose the other 3. lol. I use this brush to apply both pressed and loose powder.

Jane Iredale The Handi

I use the Jane Iredale Handi Brush to apply loose powder. It also works well to set my foundation.  

Bdellium tools #958

Bdellium Tools has great brushes. I buy there brushes from Naimie’s  Beauty Center. I use #958 for liquid foundation. I love how large the head of the brush is.

Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

The Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush is my new obsession. They are not kidding when they say airbrush! My foundation looks flawless when i use this brush and is very evenly applied.  

Make Up For Ever 25S

One of my fav brushes for contouring is #25S by Make Up For Ever. The slant on the brush makes it idiot proof so you can’t go wrong during the application. 

MAC Blush Brush #116

MAC Blush Brush #116 is great for applying blush because the bristles are tapered giving you more control over the brush and allowing you to pick up stronger pigment.

Stila One Step Complexion Brush #33
Stila One Step Complexion Brush #33

#33 by Stila is great for highlighting and contouring. I use it primarly for highlighting my cheekbones, and contouring and highlighting my nose.

Well boys and girls…i hope that helped. Out of all the face and cheek brushes that I own, I have to say these are my favorite ones and the ones I use constantly. If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment.

XOXO,
Anyut

Off Topic

Hi everyone,

Totally off topic…I wanted to share with you all a book that I picked up two days ago and can’t seem to put down. Or should I say turn off since I’m reading it on the iPad. The book is titled Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. It’s a New York Times bestselling erotic fiction and it’s amazing thus far!

FACE WASH…Drug Store vs. Department Store

 

i am and have been obsessed with Philosophy’s Purity Face Wash. It melts the make-up off my face, including eye make-up, and it doesn’t dry out my skin. I recently discovered a face wash just as amazing by Neutrogena, called Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser. The only difference is the price! While Philosophy will run you $20 for an 8oz bottle, Neutrogena is $7.49 for a 6oz bottle.
