If you thought you can use any type of foundation and it would suit your skin, think again. I mean, you might, but if it’s really not for your skin type, you probably wont like it. And heres why: If you have oily skin you may want a foundation that is mattifying and if you have dry skin, you may want a foundation that feels hydrating and has a dewy finish. Whats more, if you have dry skin, you may want to opt for a liquid foundation because solid foundations like sticks and pots may not blend as well and can sit in dry areas and make your skin look creased. Similarly, oily skin gals may also like liquid foundations more because they are more easily blendable and don’t crease or sit in oily patches, but may also like sticks as well because our oils can help blend those out better. Also, coverages play a role in what you may like as well. If you have pretty clear skin, you may like low-medium coverage foundations but if your acne prone and have lots of breakouts, you’d like a full coverage more. I myself have combo-oily skin and like both liquid foundations and have found some foundation sticks to be quite nice on me as well. What I dont like is compacts or powders because I think they crease alot, but I may also may not have found the right one. My absolute favorite foundation right now is LANCÔME - Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation

Foundations for oily skin
Blue Eyeshadow Wing 💎
I would like to share my experience with two products with this makeup look: I used to think that blue wasn’t really my colour (whatever that means?!) ...until I had a campaign photoshoot for my old workplace, and the makeup artist/CEO of a rising local Canadian makeup brand, MisMack had me in the chair, and picked this blue shade: #MisMack - ART Shadow Blue Flower Power[products]#[FiveStars] At first, I was super opposed like “why would you pick THIS out of all colours?!” But I trusted her experienced vision and was not disappointed. I fell in love with blue again, so much that I ended up investing in this award winning shade, which is a bit pricey at $25 per shade, but it’s a) pro-pigment, meaning great for professional makeup artists, AND b) clean. It comes in a metal tin, and fits into a magnetic palette - yay for sustainability points! So I’ve been using this blue shade in more of my looks recently and I find that it somehow looks quite natural on me. I was pretty upset on this day, but doing my makeup and expressing myself helped. I also have some good news, I finally found a highlighter that’s better suited for my warm skin tone and that gives me that nice shimmer pop in photos! 🌟 Her name is LAWLESS - Lucid Skin Highlighter She’s great! I got this highlighter during that big Sephora sale, and we have been almost inseparable since she arrived at my doorstep! Nice on a bare face and a foundation prepped face! The only reason I gave this a 4-star is because it’s a little crumbly, so I have to brush of the excess off the brush each time before applying it on my face and sometimes have to rub it in with my fingers, so it blends more cohesively with my skin. Other than that, she fLAWLESS baby! The rest of the makeup I’m wearing here, that I’ll go into more detail about later are: Foundation: BITE - Changemaker Supercharged Micellar Foundation Brow balm: elate - Brow Balm Lips: BITE - Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon Blush: FENTY BEAUTY - Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter
Bite Beauty's changemaker products are stunning! 😍
Bite Beauty has launched its foundation series! The packaging in morandi pink is so stunning! The three products introduced include the Changemaker Skin-Optimizing PrimerBITE - Changemaker Skin-Optimizing Primer, Changemaker Supercharged Micellar FoundationBITE - Changemaker Supercharged Micellar Foundation, and Changemaker Flexible Coverage Pressed PowderBITE - Changemaker Flexible Coverage Pressed Powder. The primer is available in two formulas (one for normal to dry skin and one for normal to oily skin) whereas the foundation comes in 32 shades! The pressed powder is also available in eight shades. I bought the foundation in the shade L10 and pressed powder in the shade Light 1. The foundation is totally skin-like. Even when I apply two layers, it doesn't look cakey at all. Instead, it improves my uneven skin texture and also offers sheer coverage. This foundation is marketed to offer a moderate coverage. However, since I use a beauty blender, the coverage is lighter than expected but I think it will offer a fuller coverage if I use a brush instead.🤔 The pressed powder is also really thin and lightweight but there is nothing special about it. I recently especially prefer using tinted pressed powder for makeup finishing and contouring.😉
new girl here !

Blotchy Foundation? We Don’t Know Her 🤪
The key to to a flawless foundation always, always starts with the base! Ive foundation what helps me get super-smooth application is hydration. When my skin’s hydrated, everything smooths and layers on like butter. 🌸 Warning: it’s extremely thick! So if you don’t like thick/heavy moisturizer, this is not for you. But I’ve found this to be the best moisturizer for under my foundation. COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Cream 🌸 After letting my moisturizer sink into my skin for 2-10 minutes (depending on how much time I have lol), I smooth this gal on. This is a new product by Too Faced btw! I just started using it and love it so far. And it smells like heavennnnnnn. Too Faced - Plump & Prime Face Plumping Primer Serum 🌸 Then I smooth this all-time fave on areas of my face that get super oily, like my t-zone and center cheeks. smashbox - Photo Finish Foundation Primer 🌸 Okay, I know opinions on this brand/foundation are polarizing and some people swear it’s the worst for your skin! But I SWEAR by this foundation lol. I’ve been using it since I was 15 and I’ve never found anything that compares. It is heavy and full coverage, but that’s what I like :). I apply it with a wet beauty blender. MAC - Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation 🌸 This one’s a no-brainer! A holy grail! tarte - Shape Tape Concealer 🌸 I actually use this as a spot concealer around my face for any imperfections poking through. Another product I’ve been using for years. It’s so creamy and amazing!!! MAYBELLINE - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer 🌸 I cannot live without this thing. I spray it all over my face after I finish the wet part of my routine and it melts everything together. MAC - Prep + Prime Fix+ Primer and Setting Spray, Original Soothing Herbal 🌸 I LOVE this eye powder!!!! I do have to say, it’s REALLY white. But I have super dark circles under my eyes and love that super light under eye look. I use a dry baby beauty blender for this one. laura mercier - Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eyes 🌸 I have really big pores that poke through everything and anything and this powder is literally the only thing that hides ‘em. It gives me the illusion of smooth skin while setting my makeup to last all day long. I know this sounds crazy, but I apply it with the same damp beauty blender I used for my foundation, just the clean side of it. Idk how or why, but it works! laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder 🌸 Best setting spray in the UNIVERSE!!! MORPHE - Continuous Setting Mist

Good skincare for life.
I’ve been obsessed with skincare and makeup since I was a little girl. I made my own masks, I religiously cleansed my face day and night once I started wearing makeup and I used treatment products and moisturizers long before I needed them - that is key! Start a skincare routine as early as you can. If you think your skin is perfect and doesn’t need anything, think about the decades coming! Start now! Here’s the thing- skincare (and makeup) don’t have to be complicated or expensive. I regularly blend drugstore products with high end products. Honestly, many of the drugstore products turn out to be my favorites. Full disclosure, I use a crap ton of skincare products and I change up my routine as needed. I rarely put on a full face of makeup but I do wear some makeup 5-6 days of the week because it makes me feel pulled together and I like how it looks. No apologies necessary for daily make up wearers- do what makes you feel good! No shame in self care, ever! Today felt like a full-face-of-makeup day for some reason, so I had some fun and put it all on. Here are some of my fave products and what I used today: 1. Day old hair with Toni & Guy matte hair powder. 2. Cleanse face with Clarisma CLARISMA - Malibu Blush Exfoliating Scrub - the enzymes in this cleanser keep my face smooth and glowing. Follow with some quick swipes of Pixie Glow Tonicpixi - Glow Tonic allow to dry then mix one drop The Ordinary Niacinamide & ZincThe Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% with The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HAThe Ordinary - Matrixyl* 10% + HA , half pump Clarisma Cali Dreaming Cream Moisturizer,CLARISMA - Cali Dreaming Cream Daily Moisturizer massage in and appy a dab of Roots Sensitive Eye Cream to eyes. When my face is dry I apply a layer of Drunk Elephant Umbra Tint SPFDRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 . 3. Prime my oily skin with Smashbox Photo Finishsmashbox - Photo Finish Foundation Primer Super Light , one little drop each Lancôme Tint Idole FoundationLANCÔME - Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation and Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation#Shiseido - Perfect Refining Foundation[products]#[FiveStars] , Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Multi Use ConcealerMAYBELLINE - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer for under eyes, Elf Hydrating Camo Concealere.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer (just discovered this!), Undone Cream BlushUNDONE BEAUTY - LIP TO CHEEK 3-IN-1 CREAM PALETTE , tiny bit of Bare Minerals VeilbareMinerals - Mineral Veil Setting Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 25 on t-zone, Shiseido lash curlerSHISEIDO - Shiseido Eyelash Curler , Covergirl Total Tease mascaraCOVERGIRL - Total Tease Waterproof Mascara , NYX brow powderNYX - Eyebrow Cake Powder , Rimmel grey eyeliner, a few pats of a terracotta colored eyeshadow by Illuminati,bh - Illuminating in Ireland 6 Color Highlight Palette Sephora chunky crayon brow enhancer, Florence lip glossflorence by mills - Get Glossed Lip Gloss Duo . Last, I like to spray a couple spritzes of Herbivore Rose Face SprayHERBIVORE - Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Mist to get a satin look. This seems like a lot, but it takes maybe 6-8 minutes. I apply my foundation, concealer, cream blush and eye shadow by hand. Always have, always will. My skin isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty good and I owe it to taking care of my skin for more than 30 years. Unfortunately, I grew up in an era we didn’t talk about sunscreen and sun damage. I baked in the sun and eeeeek, tanning beds. Surprisingly, my skin isn’t horrible but I definitely see the damage. I’m currently working on undoing some of that damage. Morale of the story, take care of your skin and enjoy the process. I do!
Spanglish palette from AC!! 💖🧡
My top 3 products used for this look: aLamar COSMETICS - Alamar Spanglish Eyeshadow Palette This is the second palette I own from AC and these eyeshadows never disappoint! Amazing pigment and easy to blend. This is not usually the color way I would be drawn too but I’m glad took a chance and played around with it! LANCÔME - Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation Can you say ONE OF THE BEST FOUNDATIONS EVERRRR!! Its described as a full coverage foundation however I’d say its more medium to full. Not quite sure about the 24 hr coverage but it did stay put at least 12 hrs for me and its super buildable without the cake. The shade range is not only amazing but I was able to find a shade that matches my olive undertone perfectly. They hit the nail right on the head with this one! FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Kiss'r Luscious Lip Balm I’m a gloss girl so I’m happy to get that look with this product as well as receiving the benefits of a lip balm. It doesn’t give me sticky vibes and I like the scent!
COLORPOP Pretty Fresh Foundation ❤️
#COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Hydrating Foundation[products]#[FiveStars] I have been EAGERLY waiting ALL day to post this review!!! I wanted to really get a good test on this foundation so 9 hours later.... 🥁 roll please!!! 🤗 ABOUT THE PRODUCTℹ️ COST: $16.99 @ ULTA Foundation with medium but build-able coverage. Contains Hyaluronic Acid 🌟 for a skin perfecting , natural finish that also helps keep your skin healthy, and hydrated 💦WHAT?!? Yes 😳 craziness! Also contains coconut 🥥 water 💧 to support even MORE hydration and skin softness. Always prep with clean 🧼 face and normal skin care routine. Prep with a primer and says to use a beauty blender. For ALL skin types!!!🤗 MY EXPERIENCE ❤️🤗 Ok friends! I am NOT a foundation wearing human. At least not in the regular. I save it for SPECIAL occasions because my skin does not like it otherwise. AKA angry 😡 breakouts and clogged pores even with primers. Let’s begin with why I am in love! Upon application I found the liquid to be quite loose, it doesn’t hold a pile shape long before spreading out. Using a beauty blender I applied it to my face. At first it seemed a little yellow from my skin but after everything was set it looked WAY more natural and crazy super close to my skin tone! Which is crazy considering how I picked it. ℹ️⚠️ Side Note 📝 I used Ulta’s virtual try on tool!!!! Had to test it multiple times to be certain and if you are not standing in bright natural light 💡 it will not be correct. But dang! I ordered this foundation in LIGHT 50W and it’s perfect for me. How my skin feels??? From the time I put it on to now, I don’t really feel the makeup on my face. I normally feel my skin screaming to be cleaned 🧼! But this is VERY easy to wear. I have dry skin so that says a lot. I don’t feel clogged or dry. And I did not notice any oxidation with this foundation, which is from the Hyaluronic Acid I am sure. I honestly still feel flawless even after cleaning house 🏡 bathing my kids! I can tell I am wearing foundation when I look in the mirror but I didn’t notice much of, or any caking as the day went on. And my skin feels soft like as if I was not wearing makeup at all which I really love! ❤️❤️❤️ Also I did not use ANY concealer in this look except for eyelids. I just lightly baked under my eyes and that was it. Super impressed with how well the coverage is! Specially on my under eye darkness. Definitely will buy this again! Easy on the budget and the skin! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 ⚠️🤗Second pic is the 9 hr later result! ❤️
If your T-zone easily becomes oily, try this high-end setting powder😘
I can honestly say that I am a fan of powder collection, because I am very infatuated with pure matte makeup effect. So over the years, the most amount of cosmetics products I’ve purchased, must be setting powder. I have bought a lot of cheap powder or expensive powder. Today, I would like to talk about my favorite high-end powder, which is BY TERRY - Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder My skin is combination type. It may gets oily in summer, get dry in winter and neutral in spring and autumn. My T zone is more easily to produce oil, my pore issue is not very prominent, occasionally acne, generally wear makeup for half a day, and I live in southern China. This By Terry powder is not cheap. At $50, there are many other expensive brands of powder available. Why has this become my favorite powder of all time? Because it's really worth it! First of all, it's really the finest powder I've ever used. You must open the lid gently, or it will fly up like smoke, if you open it too hard, it will fly out a lot, and produce more waste. The texture is also light and delicate, and the effect of hiding pores is so great that the pores and fine lines can be filled, as if to give the skin a natural skin grinding filter. This powder contains hyaluronic acid essence, so it has a very good moisturizing effect. It can also be used in the driest autumn and winter weather. There is absolutely no risk of accumulation of powder, and it also will not absorb the facial moisture, at the end of the day, it will not make you skin get dry, either. However, it can also be used in the summer, although it has moisturizing essence, but the magic is, it is also has oil control effect, I can totally wear it for at least 5 hours in summer without touch up! The only drawback may be that the product doesn't come with a powder puff, which I usually use with my powder brush, but I also have a powder puff so that the excess doesn't fly out every time I open it. I will definitely buy back this powder, I have never seen a more versatile powder compared with this one, recommended!

Primers for oily skin
Everyone who knows me knows I have super oily skin. It’s probably the bane of my existence when it comes to my make up. I’ve been trying to find whatever solutions I can to help keep my make up on a little longer throughout the day. Sephora recently had a sale where the BECCA - Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation was only $27 so I decided to take a chance and purchase it. This primer normally retails for $39 and claims to target oil to mattify, blur, and prep the skin for long lasting make up. As you can see from the video I posted despite Becca claiming this primer is silky smooth it’s super thick! I had the hardest time even getting this out of the packaging. I also read from reviews on Sephora that this primer works best parting it into the areas you need it so instead of applying all over the face (which with how thick it is you wouldn’t be able to do anyways) so I targeted it on my T zone and pores. It definitely does mattify instantly. I feel like it blurs as well because it almost looks like a white caste layer of blurriness on the areas you put it. That being said foundation doesn’t apply nicely on top of it. It’s like you could see a distinct line in my foundation where I had placed the primer. It was quite obvious where the primer was making the foundation separate on application. For this fact I’m completely returning this to Sephora and I wouldn’t recommend anyone use. No matter how I applied it or where you get this separation that’s super unflattering. I feel like if Becca tweaked the formula a little it could be something great as it does mattify and blur but since it gives this odd white caste layer that sits on the skin foundation does lie on top correctly.
BECCA-Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation
This is my holy grail foundation! It is more of a matte finish, and will last all day for me personally, and is my everyday foundation. I always apply with a beauty blender. I have a few dark spots from sun exposure and it completely covers them up, and is extremely long-lasting! The only downside is that it can be a little difficult to get off, but a good makeup remover and cleanser should do the trick! I started using it about 4 years ago after trying a variety of foundations. I love that Estée Lauder Double Wear doesn’t break me out at all. Since I have sensitive skin, I get breakouts easily from other foundations I’ve tried. It’s definitely full coverage, but not even close to looking cakey. I highly recommend trying it out if you are in the market for a new foundation! #cheriecreatorESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation
