Mix them up! Get a better foundation

I'm very picky to the foundation because I have dry skin. The hydrating, coverage, texture, finish of a foundation is all very important. I got Kevyn Aucoin Etherealist Foundation in Sephora. When I try it store, I like its nice coverage, lightweight texture and fragrance-free. While after few times try on my skin, I found it somewhat dry out my skin. So, I put it away. To get a flawless foundation makeup, I know it’s very important to put on a primer. I got Armani Maestro UV primer, which is one of Armani Beauty's best sellers. It has broad-spectrum SPF 50 that is really amazing, as a primer, I like it. It uses antioxidants fillers to mimic the behavior of collagen. The texture of it is oil-ish and a bit oily. It can soak into the skin well, but I will need to very careful of the amount. Or, my skin will get really greasy. Then, it occurs to me that why not mix them together. The thing is the mixture does do a great job. The mixed foundation becomes very easy to blend and definitely buildable. It is really lightweight and fluid, which provides my skin great moisturizing, and makes my skin looks glowy without oily looking. It won't be cakey even if I wear makeup over 8 hours. Mixed with oily texture primers will not affect its coverage. It could still cover my blemishes. Before I give a try, I cannot imagine how well could two beauty products mix together. Kevyn Aucoin foundation costs me $58, and Armani primer is $64, which are really pricy! This amazing try totally save my money!

Foundations That Just ~*hit the spot*~ For Me
Foundations That Just ~*hit the spot*~ For Me
Hello beautiful people! i definitely do NOT deserve these foundations and the way they make me look. but here we are, being the lord’s favorite. CLINIQUE - Even Better Foundation Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 for some reason, this doesn’t break me out despite having SPF. maybe it’s because of the low SPF? idk, but this is my TOP ONE fave. it has medium buildable coverage and it has a good shade range! i can always trust this to make my skin look juicy. shade 26 cashew is my perfect summer shade! PÜR - 4-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 this one’s for my more ~natural~ girls. it has light to medium (yes, medium) coverage, and an SPF 20. again, by some miracle, this never broke me out. i always use this for my no makeup makeup days. only gave it a 4 star rating because they only come in three shades. i use Tan as my fall/winter shade, and that’s the darkest shade they have. tsk tsk. here’s to hoping they expand, because they did something right here. Too Faced - Born This Way Natural Finish Foundation this is more of my “glowy and hoey” foundation. when i know i’m going to be in a public setting (like a party, event, etc.), i use this. it has a medium buildable coverage and I’m in the shade Warm Beige. the only reason i gave this a 4 star rating is because i find that sometimes it comes off as patchy. nothing a lil concealer can’t fix, though, so i aint really mad at it. MAYBELLINE - Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation one of the HOLY GRAILS when it comes to drugstore foundations. i use this when i want to look like i have zero oil whatsoever on my face. this foundation has a full coverage with matte finish. I’m in the shade 220 Natural Beige, and aint no other foundation match me the way this does. 10/10 i don’t have anything bad to say about it. price? check. coverage? check. match? check. finish? check. who’s seeing her? absolutely no one. so yeah, these are the foundations i reach for the most. if yall can tell, i tend to lean more on the medium coverage with a dewy finish kinda look. that Superstay is the only matte foundation for me. i hope this helped some of you guys! let me know some of your favorites down in the comments!

Ooooooomygod - let me start by saying that I actually can not and will not live without this foundation because it is !!! Claims: 24 hr fresh staying power (maybe like ,, ~16 hours let’s be honest, but STILL). Lightweight and breathable texture (yes), transfer resistant (it will def get on my sweatshirt if i put it over my head after i put this on so no), natural finish (YES). I looove this because it’s non-comedogenic 🥰 gives me the smoothest and freshest appearance 🥺 and it does NOT oxide 😤 it also blends out super easily and the consistency a good middle between runny and thick. It’s my perfect every day foundation! Sadly, this is ALSO an empty which means I will be repurchasing ASAP! L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation

MAYBELLINE Fit Me! VS. NARS Radiant Concealer
MAYBELLINE Fit Me! VS. NARS Radiant Concealer
NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer is the most raved about concealer and the MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Concealer has always been said to be a good dupe for the Nars concealer.🤩🤩 As you can see, both products have easy-to-use doe foot applicators and could make corrections to little flaws.👍🏻 As for the main difference, Nars concealer has a thicker consistency with a slightly fuller coverage while the Maybelline one is more dewy with a medium coverage.🤜🏻🤛🏻 I have a combination skin with somewhat oily T-zone and dry cheeks, in my case, Maybelline Fit Me concealer doesn't melt into the skin and it tends to sit on top which can give a cakey look. Nars radiant creamy concealer matches my skin perfectly, which is my all time favorite and I have repurchased it many many times. 💸💸😭😭 NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer is $30 for 0.22 oz and the MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Concealer is around only $7 for 0.23 oz. So Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is a good option if you're not ready to commit to the price tag of the Nars.🤟🏻🤟🏻

MY CONCEALER AWARDS
MY CONCEALER AWARDS
Best Finish Award: ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer If you’re looking for a concealer that has a soft radiant finish that isn’t too dewy or matte, this is the one! I love wearing this when I want to look like I almost have no makeup on and I use the shade 2W. It gives pretty good coverage and definitely still looks like skin! Best Coverage Award: MAKE UP FOR EVER - Full Cover Concealer Meet the concealer that I’ve been using for 6 years! I loooove this concealer for my breakouts and scars. This is seriously the highest coverage concealer I’ve ever tried! It covers literally anything and is waterproof! I use this only for pinpoint concealing- and shade 6 is my perfect skin match! Best Everyday Award: ARMANI beauty - Power Fabric Concealer This is such a great all-rounded concealer. I love the finish, the coverage and the lasting power of it. I use the shade 5.25 and it’s perfect for everyday use! It gives just enough coverage for me to perfect my skin and it also last pretty long! It works for under the eyes or all over the face for a thin veil to even out discoloration! Best Shade-range Award: FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Concealer This concealer my perfect skin match when I’m at my palest- and it’s probably the palest shade I own! I love this concealer so much because there just so many shades to choose from that you’ll for sure be able to find a perfect match. The coverage is pretty high with this one but it still manages to look skin-like. I can tell I have makeup on when I’m wearing this- but not in a bad way! Just very perfecting. I use the shade 145. Best for Photo/Video Award: MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer This is my go-to concealer for photoshoots or events because it just looks so great for photo and video! I love that it never has flashback and it makes my skin look flawless in person and on screen! There are also so many shades to choose from. I love using this either just under my eyes or as a thin layer of foundation! It looks so natural but flawless. I use the shade 30!

What I like & dislike of Fenty Beauty face products
What I like & dislike of Fenty Beauty face products
Rihanna created Fenty Beauty, focusing on a wide range of traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, developing formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades. So when the brand came out I was very excited. And today I want to share some face products that I bought several months ago and share my thoughts. Let’s start with the primer and foundation that created for normal to dry skin type. The Pro Filter Hydrating Primer is a lightweight, hydrating primer with grape seed oil and sodium hyaluronate inside for a silky-smooth finish. I have dry skin and I can feel the hydration after applying it, but I don’t think it will last all day. However, the packaging and the smell of it is really nice, so I can give it 4/5 and I quite like it. FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Hydrating Primer About the Hydrating Longwear Foundation, I am not a fan of it. As you can see in the picture, I use it after the primer and it still looks dry even it has fluidity. The description says it will give a hydrating, natural finish with medium-to-full coverage. I admit that the coverage is pretty good and it is easy to blend, but it is not hydrating for me and I can see it sticking in my smiling lines after only 3 to 4 hours. So I am thinking maybe it will have better performance during hot summer weather. I can give it 3/5 and I don’t think it met my expectation.  FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Hydrating Longwear Foundation Now it turns to highlighters. The first one is the Diamond Bomb-How Many Carats?!, which is a highlighter with pure platinum sparkle and no base color at all. So, I think it can be used for all skin tones. Even it is full of glitters, it features a unique jelly-powder formula and feels like oily based. However, it squeezed and off the pan right now and I didn’t drop it for sure. So, considering the risk of off pan, I can give it 4/5 and a like. FENTY BEAUTY - Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil The next is a mini highlighter I bought in a set with a lip gloss. It is a Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter named Hu$tla Baby, which is a golden champagne shimmer. It feels super soft and shiny. The size is also perfect for traveling. Even the shade is not very special, it is still beautiful and can match different kinds of makeup. I can also give it 4/5.  FENTY BEAUTY - Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter So these are my thoughts about the products I bought from Fenty Beauty, and each of them I did a lot of work before purchasing. Hope my reviews can be helpful for you!

My GO-TO Foundations for Different Seasons
My GO-TO Foundations for Different Seasons
My skin always behaves differently during different times of the year due to changes in the climate. Therefore, in order to achieve a perfect base makeup at all times, I alternate between foundations with different textures and slightly different shades to accommodate my skin conditions.   My GO-TO foundation for summer: Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF 30 ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF 30 My skin tends to become extra oily in the summer and I hate to put on heavy base makeup that ends up melting anyways in the hot weather. After trials of many foundations, I have settled for this product because of its watery texture that feels very light on the skin, yet, surprisingly long-lasting finish. Although the coverage is only light to medium, I still love the finish of this foundation because it blends beautifully into the skin, allowing me to achieve that my-skin-but-better effect. It is also great for occasions where you just want to have a natural and radiant look. This is absolutely one of my favourite foundations that I would definitely repurchase! Not to mention it has SPF 30, perfect to block out the harsh sunlight during summer times.   My GO-TO foundation for seasonal changes: YSL Touche Éclat All-In-One Glow Foundation During seasonal changes, my skin would become dry and flaky, therefore, I always choose a hydrating foundation to prevent my base makeup from creasing and caking up. This product is my top pick because it is very hydrating and leaves a dewy finish that makes my skin look glowing and healthy. This foundation has a very unique texture: at first it is in a creamier texture but instantly turns watery when you spread it out, which feels very hydrating and refreshing. I am also truly impressed by its medium coverage given its thin texture! Most of the redness and blemishes on my face can be covered. However, the glow would highlight uneven skin texture, so I would not recommend it for people with this problem.
