Flawless Makeup Secret Learned From Kylie🔥🔥🔥
To have flawless makeup, the key part is the foundation. But finding our holy grail foundation isn’t always easy. There are so many factors that come into play when choosing a base:
finish (matte or dewy),
coverage (sheer, medium or full),
texture (liquid or powder),
price point (drugstore or luxe) and more.Keep in mind, these are my personal favorites that I have tried and that work for me. 🔥MY SKIN🔥
SKIN TYPE: Combination ✔️
SKIN TONE: Medium ✔️
SKIN CONCERNS: Pores & Dullness ✔️Flawless foundation weapon —— ARMANI beauty - Luminous Silk Foundation
- For dry skin, it really works and doesn’t flake up or cling to dry patches.
- For oily skin, you just take my time to bounce it in and set it and it just looks like gorgeous skin.〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ Here are some BASIC RULES for applying foundation flawlessly are pretty much the same for all skin types: ⭐️ ● Clean and moisturize your face. Start with a clean canvas. Consider skin care as your makeup prime. ⭐️ ● Use only the products suitable for your skin type. ⭐️ ● Apply primer and color correct parts of your face before applying the foundation. ⭐️ ● Choose the right foundation color. ⭐️ ● Apply foundation and gently blend it. Always start by applying just a little bit of foundation, then add more until you have the right amount of coverage. The goal is to only apply foundation where you need it, so that your skin still looks like skin. ⭐️ ● Stack concealer only where needed. ⭐️ ● Conceal dark circles, and redness. Contour if you need to. A little contouring goes a long way. ⭐️ ● Stipple, don’t rub. Avoid any wiping or rubbing motions because that will only push the foundation around and cause streaks. ⭐️ ● Don’t forget your ears! Your ears are a part of your face, too. ⭐️ ● Set your makeup with a finishing spray or a translucent setting powder.

Thank You Kylie Jenner 👏🏻🍑
No shame in admitting but I definitely tried this product because Kylie Jenner said this was her go to foundation, and who am I to not listen to the selfie queen?! When my skin is at it’s worst, let me tell you this foundation keeps it looking like it’s at its best! The second photo I included has not been retouched and was shot on a iPhone 8 Plus. My skin was in decent shape at the time, but let me tell you that this foundation brought it up to a whole new level! This claims to be a medium to full coverage foundation, but I find it’s more so medium and very buildable. I would recommend wearing a luminous primer underneath since the finish is relatively matte. I also use a beauty blender with this product always, since I’ve tried a brush but do find it comes out a little streaky. There are a few ingredients in the formula which make me question it a little.. it is a comedogenic formula, it has quite a few ingredients that cause fungal acne, and a couple of different kinds of alcohol. I have this problem with a lot of designer brands, especially companies like Dior who consistently include drying alcohols in their liquid formulas. Will I be repurchasing - Oh of course! I’m already on my second bottle so I definitely anticipate continuing to buy this for quite sometime!
Hyped products I didn’t love 💔
Today I wanted to quickly review some products that have been super hyped up over the years. Unfortunately, these products just didn’t work for me. I won’t go into detail like I usually do in reviews, but quick summaries. So, if you have any questions, please let me know! Up first is the BOBBI BROWN - Vitamin Enriched Eye Base . This product is supposed to nourish, hydrate and smooth the under eye area as well as prime it for concealer. This product did feel hydrating, but it made my concealer crease horribly no matter how little I applied. I gave it time to soak in and tried it will several concealers with no luck. I do think this is a nourishing eye cream, it just doesn’t pair well with makeup which is it’s intended purpose. Next, we have the wet n wild - Photo Focus Dewy Foundation . This might be a shocker since this is literally a cult favorite, but it just didn’t do it for me. It’s not the worst, especially in terms of coverage, but I didn’t really like the finish of it. It didn’t fuse with my skin; it just kind of sat on top. Plus, it wasn’t that glowy on my dry skin. I think my main issue is that I couldn’t find a good color match. As I said, this isn’t the worst and I’ll probably try to use it up by mixing it with another foundation. It didn’t live up to the hype though. Moving on, we have the ARMANI beauty - Luminous Silk Foundation . This ones hard for me because I’ve wanted to try this foundation for so long and has such high hopes. Unfortunately, I thought this was awful. For some reason, this applies very patchy on me and emphasized texture regardless of what products I used underneath. The coverage wasn’t great either. I have foundations a fraction of the cost of this one that are superior. I’ll use up the sample and see if I can find a combination that makes this look okay, but for now, it’s a hard pass. Lastly, is the ISLE OF PARADISE - Self-Tanning Water . This burned by skin SO BAD. Every single time I used this, my skin turned bright red, was itchy and was irritated immediately. As you can see, I gave this tanning water several tries, but I always had the same reaction. It’s a shame because this did tan my face nicely. People love this stuff and I really wish it worked for me. I might try using it on my body, just so I’m not wasteful. Hopefully I don’t have the same results! There ya have it: hyped products that didn’t work for me unfortunately 😩 Did you love any of these?
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!

UOMA BEAUTY-Say What?! Foundation
Holy grail alert If you’re looking for the most skin-like, dewiest, long-wearing, silky foundation that blends like a dream - look no further. I’m almost mad at myself for how much I love this foundation because its literally $58 but you guys it’s so good. Now I’m not that crazy, I don’t wear it on an everyday basis - I save it for more important days or when I’m going out. This foundation is a light to medium coverage which is exactly what I look for. I prefer to have a light base and then just use a good concealer over problem areas. This is a good way to keep your skin looking like skin and not cakey. It never clings to dry patches and just makes my skin look so juicy and plump without being too slippy if that makes sense. I hate feeling like my foundation is sliding around my face, but this guy stays put and looks good doing it. I also have worn this foundation for over 20 hours (please don’t ask lol) and it still looked AMAZING...so the wearability is just as good as the finish.

My FAV Primers! You Will Like Them As Well!💖💖💖
Yoooooooo What'sssss up! I am supre super happy today cuz I just finished a bunch of work. And I think it is the time to introduce some of my fav primers. And all three primers have Great reviews: laura mercier - Foundation Primer YVES SAINT LAURENT - Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow #HOURGLASS - Veil Mineral Primer[products]#[FiveStars] 1) Laura Mercier Foundation Primer This colorless, lightweight primer has good shine-control. It spreads easily, gets absorbed right away and leaves my skin feeling moisturized, but it doesn't even out my skin tone. It's very moisturizing and it leaves my skin shine-free. It allows my makeup to be long lasting, and doesn't cause separation nor balls up. 2) YSL Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow This is also a colorless primer that's even more lightweight. It gets absorbed more easily, provides my skin with a translucent glow, but it doesn't even out my skin tone. 3) Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer This is a white, mousse-like primer which spreads easily. I use it to correct my skin tone and cover the redness around my nose. It has the best shine control effect compared with the Laura Mercier and YSL primers. It even keeps my under eye makeup from peeling, so this is my favorite primer so far.

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!
