After a long day...
After a long shift at work my skin still looks fresh and dewy! I applied two pumps of the hydro grip, spot concealed with Ilia and applied a thin layer of flex foundation. To say I’m pleased with my base products would be an understatement! My holy grails for sure! I apply the primer with my fingers and then fab in the concealer and foundation with a sponge ILIA - True Skin Serum Concealer

Hellooooo Milk Makeup! I can’t tell you guys how excited and in love I am with this stuff, it’s like they were all made for me! ⠀ ⠀ Matte Bronzer: I love. I love so much. It’s incredible value as this will last forever for a decent price. I was swiping it on my skim and blending out and then switch to going into the product with a brush then the skin and I honestly like both ways. It’s not for contouring as it’s quite warm, but it warms up the face for a sun kissed glow perfectly. It blends perfectly and isn’t super matte. It surprisingly works well over powder! And yes, it does smell like play dough Milk MAKEUP - Matte Bronzer ⠀ ⠀ Flex Foundation: I cannot stop using it. It glides onto the skin and melts and blends in really beautifully with a sponge. When I apply a decent powder on top it stays in place all day, but will separate pretty badly on its own. The colour match is spot on and doesn’t cover up any glow that my skincare and primer provide! I’m not so sure about the skincare benefits, but my acne prone skin tells me that it’s good for those who are sensitive!! I’m going to keep this for travel as it’s so tiny and non liquid. I highly recommend using the hydro grip primer with it too!⠀Milk MAKEUP - Flex Foundation Stick ⠀ Kush Lash Primer and Mascara: I don’t know how to typically use lash primers, but I’m impressed. It fattens up my lashes really well and gives me the volume I crave. The mascara is lengthening and volumizing too on its own and with the primer. I love how my lashes feel so soft and not stiff with this. It makes removing it literally effortless with an oil cleanser, I don’t get flakes and fallout during the day nor does it smudge. I used the mascara months ago and remember it helping my lashes grow too ⠀Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara Milk MAKEUP - KUSH Lash Primer ⠀ Vegan Milk Moisturizer: love. New holy grail. That’s it. Kidding!! It’s the thickest cream I’ve ever used and it’s so soft and gentle. It feels almost too thick at first but then melts into the skin with some warmth. It’s completely free of irritating ingredients and I have immediate redness reduction and zero tightness when I use this morning or night. It doesn’t pill up over an oil and makes primer and foundation go on very smoothly. Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer
This is my Milk Collection - Foundation Review
I picked up the Milk flex foundation stick in Creme and I cannot stop using it. It glides onto the skin and melts and blends in really beautifully with a sponge. When I apply a decent powder on top it stays in place all day, but will separate pretty badly on its own. The colour match is spot on and doesn’t cover up any glow that my skincare and primer provide! I’m not so sure about the skincare benefits, but my acne prone skin tells me that it’s good for those who are sensitive!! I’m going to keep this for travel as it’s so tiny and non liquid. I highly recommend using the hydro grip primer with it too! Milk MAKEUP - Flex Foundation Stick Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer

Smokey Eye Me Pls!
I’m a soft glam, super coverage kinda gal at ❤️ and a black or brown (if your feeling a less RAWR XD) is alyways a go-to. My favorite palette for achieving this look is the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette it has every shade you will need to achieve those perfect day to night looks, it’s beginner friendly, and a considering well priced palette for the shade quality. You can’t achieve the perfect smokey soft glam look without a good base and though some may feel primers are a scam, THIS primer is the REAL DEAL. The Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer is amazing! it tightens pores, and leaves the skin a more full coverage and blended overall look AND at Sephora they sell the travel sized for 13 bucks so you can try for yourself!

🇺🇸 happy memorial day weekend! 🌊 explaination I’m an active duty service member in the Navy. Balancing femininity with the confines of a uniform can be pretty difficult at times. A lot of people question how much makeup I am allowed to wear and how/when. And I wear a full face! 🌊 so what can you wear? The general guidelines (lot of paraphrasing here) are that makeup must look natural looking, not be faddish, and not use overly bright colors/glitter. Special occasions do call for special looks, but I tend to wear the same products everyday. 🌊 what I do My goal is to make it look like I’m not wearing makeup even though I probably spent 30-40 minutes on my face that morning. I tend to skip eyeshadow to save time, especially with my hooded eyes. feel free to ask any questions! 🌊 My current daily makeup lineup Primer: Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer Concealer: MAYBELLINE - SuperStay Better Skin Concealer Setting Powder: REVOLUTION - Conceal & Fix Setting Powder Blush: Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek Bronzer: Milk MAKEUP - Matte Bronzer Brow Pencil ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Perfect Brow Pencil Brow Gel benefit - Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel Setting Spray Urban Decay All Nighter Mascara Too Faced Damn Girl!

My Simple and Clean Makeup Routine! 🌸🍒
I’m not the makeup expert (and never will be), but these products have completely changed my routine for the better. 💧Glossier Futuredew ($24): I was worried this product was going to be too much for my oily skin, but I love the natural glow this product gives me! Apply 1-2 pumps depending on your preference. 🍑 Ilia True Skin Serum Concealer ($28): Although this is a little on the pricey side, I think it’s totally worth it! This product is clean, but it’s medium-coverage formula gets the job done! 🍓 Cocokind Macabeet Tinted Moisture Stick ($8): I could understand why this isn’t the product for some people, but for natural beauty lovers like me, this is a great product! It gives a nice subtle tint. And the best part is that the color comes from beet root (but don’t worry it doesn’t stain)! 🍒 Glossier Lip Gloss ($16): If you want a more in depth review on this product, check out my article on my favorite lip products. But I’ll tell you this: This gloss is perfect for summer! It’s non-sticky formula gives such a beautiful gloss! cocokind - Macabeet tinted moisture stick ILIA - True Skin Serum Concealer Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss Glossier. - Futuredew

So I did it! I splurged for the Super Serum Skin Tint with 40 SPF and I love it☺️ MY first post was about over-coming a few types of acne. Therefore, underneath all of this makeup is some acne scars and a few pimples. This can help estimate how good the makeup actually works! 🌞 Products used: 5/5 for all! • Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint in Diaz • Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation in Texel • Ilia True Skin Serum Concealer in Yucca • Ilia Multi-Stick in Lady Bird • Ilia Illuminator in Polka Dots & Moonbeams • Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara • Ilia Essential Brow Gel in Brown • Clinique Pop Matte in Blushing pop And a TOUCH of • Ilia Clean Liquid Liner I’ve been using the True Skin Foundation since June ‘19 and I’ve tried SEVERAL foundations but I keep coming back to this one that makes you look ever so dewy! ☝🏼 p.s. I think I prefer this Essential Brow over Glossier Boy Brow 🤷🏻♀️
Perfect Match: Glowing Skin Trio
✨Serum Foundation - this is literally a serum texture, it’s gives the most beautiful glow and medium coverage to the skin and sinks in to feel almost like a lightweight oil. It’s infused with aloe so I find my skin stays much more hydrated throughout the day! After reading I thought that 2 would be my shade, but instead got 1.5 and it truly disappears on the skin. I love when a shade matches me this good! This would be my perfect foundation, but I wish there was more coverage. I hope once my skin clears more It’ll be perfect ILIA - True Skin Serum Foundation ✨ Radiant priming primer - this has a beautiful “natural” smell to it, has a pretty like shimmer to it and soaks in like a serum to give the skin some grip for the foundation and lasting hydration ILIA - True Skin Radiant Priming Serum ✨ Liquid Light - this is a beautiful rosy pink highlight that isn’t chunky, just glowy! I love mixing this with my primer or foundation for an all over glow and then on the high points to make them shine!! It’s has a funny smell, but I think it’s incredible that it’s anti pollution too ILIA - Liquid Light Serum Highlighter

NudeStix Tinted Cover Foundation in 02
NUDESTIX - Tinted Cover Foundation This is one of the most natural foundations I’ve ever tried. It has quite a bit more coverage than the Glossier Skin Tint, so I like to wear this on stage or if I’m having a bad skin day. It has a nice cooling feeling when I put it on and can be used with a brush, beauty blender, or fingers. I like to spread it out with my fingers and then go over it with a beauty blender to make sure it’s all blended properly. It’s a really nice dewy formula, and I like it a lot better than their Nudies Tinted Blur Stick. I tried that one, and if you have normal skin it might work, but if you have dry skin it’ll stick to your dry patches or if you have very oily skin it’ll separate. You need a specific skin type to make that work. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of that one as it’s been a whiiiiiile since I’ve had it. NUDESTIX - Nudies Tinted Blur Stick

I love my new stick foundation from Bite! It’s a great colour match after it settles into the skin and oxidizes slightly. I buffed it in with a brush and it was easy instant coverage. I like how it smooths out and makes my skin look so so healthy! I wish it was more long lasting however Milk MAKEUP - Flex Foundation Stick

You have to try this clean beauty foundation
The obsession is real! I recently purchased the @rmsbeauty uncoverup cream foundation in the shade 44 and I am so obsessed! A foundation has not surprised me this much in a while! Here are some key features: Full coverage✅ Natural finish✅ Hydrating✅ Long lasting✅ Bonus features: Cruelty free✅ Gluten free✅ Recyclable packaging✅ Clean beauty product✅ Con: Poor shade range❌ Overall I’ve been so blown away by this product it leaves a beautiful natural finish to the skin and works so great with a glowy primer or base. It blends great with other cream products and I love that since it’s in a jar it comes with a cute metal spoon to scoop out the product! A little goes a long way and I don’t see myself running out of this baby anytime soon! If you are debating between this product and their concealer I would say definitely go for this one as you get way more product for the money you are spending! I’ve been wearing this product for this whole week and it wears so beautifully throughout the day no pilling or creasing and for dry girls you definitely do not need to powder! Swipe left to see how it looks on the skin! Rms beauty you are killing it it’s another win for me!
rms beauty-Un" Cover-Up Cream Foundation
The Product: Have you heard of Ilia Beauty? They’re a clean beauty brand that creates makeup products with skincare in mind. The three products pictured are the True Skin Serum Foundation, the True Skin Serum Concealer, and the Liquid Light Serum Highlighter. The foundation is very lightweight and provides light to medium coverage. It texture is a bit more liquid than a regular liquid foundation, so two full pumps are needed for maximum coverage. The concealer is also a bit more liquid than other concealers I’ve used, but I prefer this formula because it doesn’t cake underneath my eyes. The liquid highlighter is to die for! It’s super shimmery and looks amazing as a light eyeshadow too! It also doesn’t budge, which is why I personally prefer liquid highlighter over powdered highlighter. My Two Cents: I really love these three products because of their composition. I’d prefer to spend more money on quality products, especially if they’re going to be on my face! The foundation pictured here is in the shade Texel, and costs $54 for a 1 ounce bottle. My concealer shade is Suma SC 1.5, and it costs $30. This highlighter is in the shade Nova and costs $42 for a 0.5 ounce bottle. I’d definitely recommend these three products to anyone looking for light to medium coverage from a foundation and concealer that are clean. However, I’ve found that this foundation is best applied with your fingertips directly rather than with a makeup brush. You have to lightly tap it into your skin, otherwise it gets a bit streaky. If you’re looking for a full coverage foundation, then this product isn’t for you. The highlighter however would work for anyone, but you only need a half pump. A full pump dispenses a lot of the product, and you don’t need that much. These complexion products are definitely worth the price, and I’d rate them 4.5 stars out of five. I’m docking half a star because I wish they had a larger shade range, as well as a smaller spout for the highlighter bottle.
