I have been shamefully MIA on the blog lately, over the past 6 months I started a new job and wedding season was in full effect. No more excuses, I am back and ready to share some of my favorite recipes and products with you all.
As some of you know I am also a professional makeup artist, so I am very picky about the types of products I use or even recommend. However,when I find something that I truly adore I want to share it with anyone and everyone I purchased this foundation a month ago and I am obsessed, let us discus why:
I have a few preferences when it comes to foundations:
- Long Lasting - I put a lot of effort into my makeup and I do not want it to fall off of my face after only a couple of hours of wear
- Medium to Full Coverage – I want long-lasting amazing coverage. Although I have clear skin I do have yellow undertones, when choosing a foundation I want a something that will even everything out. This is generally why I stay away from sheer or mineral based foundations.
- Glow(y) but not Oil(y)- I think the matte look has its place but not on your face. You shouldn’t see layer of powder resting on top of your face, the chalk board look is not the most flattering. However, being an oily girl myself finding the perfect balance of products can be extremely difficult (If you would like a tutorial on how I achieve this let me know)
This is the first product that truly meets all of my needs. I have used a lot of long lasting foundations and although the wear is great, I often feel like Jim Carrey in The Mask at the end of the day when peeling off layers of product. This is the first foundation I have ever used that has everything I need and still feels feather light on my skin. The only con if any is that this product is a little pricer than what I am used to spending however, I do feel that it lives up to the price tag.
