Best Foundation for Oily Skin
Today’s topic, my girls, is all about oily skin foundations. I have combination skin. I am a combination oil in summer and combination dry in winter. I am 25, my skin condition is mostly okay through out the season. I have a lot of textures and pores around my T-zone - cheek and nose area. My T-zone and forehead are always oily and supper dry on my cheeks. In my daily skincare routine, I moisturize everything. For my foundation, I am a fan of semi-matte finish look. So I am always looking for a best foundation. I’ve tried and tested a lot through our the year and here I want to share my most favorite one for this year. I always put primer as part of my makeup routine. I moisturize first, then put sunscreen on and primer before foundation. This is my all year round routine. Sunscreen is for protecting my skin from sun damage and aging. With primer, I just found it keeps my foundation stay well throughout the day. Now here comes the review on the star product that we have today. I know a lot of my oily skin friends are loving it. This is to said perfectly made for oily and combination skin. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation I love the overall finish of this product. It has good coverage, 75% of the spots and acne scares are covered pretty well. It is also very light weighted. It is not too heavy or caky. I love the fact that it is creating this flawless finish but still very natural look. And after 6 hours, I start to get oily on my forehead and around my nose area. But it still looks pretty good even with after 10 hours. And I feel like I dont have to powder it that much I would also as always put a thin layer of loose translucent setting powder. One thing I have to say that I personally do not like it too much is the combination of my bronzer with this foundation. I not sure if it is the color or the texture, it makes me look grey every time I put these 2 together. But other than that, this is a fantastic product and I am loving it so far, Highly recommended to oily and combination. Dry skin might want to stay away from it.
How to choose tinted moisturizer for your skin? ULTIMATE Guide!
Surely you have heard of tinted moisturizers, as they have been a revolution in the cosmetics market in recent years and have been popularized by many celebrities by the hand of great stylists and makeup artists. Color moisturizers arise from the need to combine in a single product the ability to moisturize and protect of a cream and the aesthetic possibility of giving a touch of color and correcting that makeup provides. Since its inception, there have been many different types of tinted moisturizers that have appeared on the market, but they all have a common purpose: the protection of the skin and bring beauty to the face. That said, when choosing a tinted moisturizer we must focus our attention mainly on the benefits it will bring to our skin. Hydration capacity Generally speaking, facial moisturizers are created with formulas that integrate different active ingredients that serve mainly three purposes: moisturize, nourish, and protect the dermis. In addition, depending on specific uses, they may be enriched with other ingredients or elements that provide them with additional properties that vary depending on the type of skin on which it is to be applied. This is going to be a determining factor when selecting one product or another, because depending on whether we have dry, sensitive skin or oily skin, the type of color moisturizer we will choose will have to meet the needs of that type of skin. Protection factor According to numerous dermatologists, the best antiaging is photoprotective, especially if it is for daily use. This is because one of the main factors of skin aging is ultraviolet rays (UV), as they are able to damage the elastin and collagen of the dermis, which favors the appearance of wrinkles, in addition to being able to cause the appearance of spots and other lesions. Color and luminosity If we are talking about the benefits of a tinted moisturizer, precisely color is an important part, one of the reasons for being of the moisturizer with color, was to adopt at the same time the characteristics of a moisturizer and provide the color and corrective capacity of makeup. Skin tone is a point to keep in mind when choosing our cream. Ideally, the cream tone is identical to the tone of our skin, so it is advisable to do tests to check it. The cheek area is the most appropriate area to do this type of test. Within the different types of color moisturizer that exist, we can meet BB Cream or CC Cream depending on their corrective capacity and other properties. The second photo is the difference between a bb cream and a foundation: As you can see, the bb cream, which is a sort of tinted moisturizer is far more natural than the foundation. I personally use the NYX bb cream. “bare with me”. I have dry skin and this is perfect for me. With this tinted moisturizer, this is the finished result that I get: a very lightweight yet radiant look that covers my imperfections.
Will Salicylic Acid Clear Your Skin?
The short answer is maybe. Here's the long answer. First, let's find out what salicylic acid is. Salicylic acid is a lipid soluble beta hydroxy acid which has comedolytic (inhibits formation of comedones) and desmolytic (breaks the junctions between corneocyte cells in the stratum corneum) properties. How does it work? The molecular structure of salicylic acid is what makes it lipid soluble, allowing it to penetrate the lipid layers between skin cells and dissolve debris in pores. This is how it's able to prevent the formation of comedones (blackheads and whitehead). Furthermore, salicylic acid breaks down the "glue" that holds corneocyte cells together, resulting in the softening and sloughing off of the very top layer of skin cells from the top layer of skin known as the stratum corneum. This is known as exfoliation. Exfoliation helps prevents accumulation of dead skin cells, sebum, makeup, etc. In plain English, it gets down deep into your skin, clears out your pores, and keeps all that gunk from getting back into you pores by not allowing it to build up on your skin. So to answer the title question, if blackheads and whiteheads are an issue for you, yes, salicylic acid may be a great ingredient to incorporate into your skincare routine. NOW, HERE'S THE CATCH. Salicylic acid can absolutely help you on your way to clear skin, BUT you need to use it properly, patiently, and persistently. How to use it: READ AND FOLLOW PRODUCT DIRECTIONS first and foremost to make sure you are properly using each product. Also, consider patch testing the product before putting it on the affected are. If using in wash form, it may help to leave it on your skin for a couple minutes to let the salicylic acid be in contact with your skin longer, then wash off completely. If using in a spot treatment, tread lightly until you know how your skin will react. you also definitely need to makes sure you keep your skin moisturized as salicylic acid can be very drying. And as always, use sunscreen every day. Failure to properly use products containing salicylic acid may result in skin injury!!! How long to use it: Providing it's well tolerated, it's important to give salicylic acid time to work. Trying a product for a week and giving up is common, but salicylic acid can take up to 6 weeks to give you the full result. 6 WEEKS. So if you find a product that you tolerate well, give it time, sis. Be patient. For best results be persistent, trust the process, and don't get discouraged. Taking a "before" picture will help you monitor your progress. Look out for: -allergic reaction -tingling -itching -peeling *make sure to talk to your doctor before using salicylic acid during pregnancy Lastly, the product pictured is Zapzyt, my all time favorite salicylic acid acne wash. It's fragrance free and very gentle on my sensitive skin. You can expect to pay no more than $10 USD and it lasts for months. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk 📢😂 and happy skincare hunting!
Skincare-makeup hybrids help protect and hydrate skin, while blurring away imperfections. Because we lead busy lives too, we understand how important time is. So when we look out for beauty products, we are drawn to those that multi-task and work well in order to save us precious time. it Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer Price: $26💵 IT Cosmetics is known for skin-boosting makeup and this award-winning concealer is no exception. I have been using this product for nearly a year I have been using it for dark pigmentation on my nose and upper lip and it certainly works and gives good coverage I have spent so much money on concealers in the past that haven't worked . You only need a small amount for best results warm it on the top of your hand by just working into the skin with your fingertips and work it into your skin gently you only need very little of the product and you will not need any foundation. I use loose powder afterwards as l like a Matt finish. In addition, to dark-circle-covering pigment, this concealer is a serving of everything your delicate under-eye area could want — peptides, vitamins, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and hydrolyzed collagen. LANCÔME - Skin Feels Good Hydrating Skin Tint Price: $23 💵 It's a hydrating skin tint for a no-makeup look, infused with skin-loving ingredients that put our skin first with sheer-to-buildable natural coverage. I bought this to replace my empty Urban Decay One and Done and while I thought that was the perfect tinted moisturizer, I think this might be better! Light coverage, but skin perfecting. Smell is good but not strong and fades quickly. I’ll probably end up using this all summer, and for more relaxed days. No issues with breakouts/irritation, but I don’t have sensitive skin so usually not an issue. Would highly recommend if you want something lighter that really makes your skin look perfect. 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ Skincare-makeup hybrid products rise in popularity is only natural, seeing as if you love both skin care products and makeup, the only thing that could be better is combining the two. Instead of taking the time to go through an entire skin care routine, followed by a multitude of makeup application rituals, you can use products that serve double-duty—addressing your complexion concerns while covering up imperfections and playing up your best features.

Mood Moosting Fall Lippies w/ lip swatches!
As the temps start to drop and the days get shorter, I look for anything to give me a mood boost. I find that adding a fun lippie can improve my mood, whether I’m bare-faced or rocking natural or glam makeup looks. Here’s a few of my fall faves: Too Faced - Melted Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick Limited Edition “gingerbread man”: This was part of the melted matte line and was released for a holiday collection a few years ago. It did come back last year. I’m not sure about this year, but there is a similar looking shade available from the brand this year called “pumpkin”. The formula is thin, comfortable (use a balm underneath), and long-wearing with some transfer. This burnt orange shade is so beautiful - I always get compliments when I wear it! $20ish FENTY BEAUTY - Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color “uncensored”: This is very long-wearing despite transferring onto everything - it never looks touched! You must be patient applying because the formula is liquidy and immediately stains. It has a comfortable matte finish. This is a red that would look amazing on all skin tones. I advise getting a mini (sometimes in Fenty holiday sets) because a full size has so much product and mine recently expired (hence no lip swatch - it smells awful now). I intend to repurchase. $25 REVOLUTION - Renaissance Lipstick in “luxe”: This is a comfortable creamy, matte lipstick that screams fall. It’s a warm brown with reddish-orange undertones. Great price point. This would be great for a wide variety of skin tones, too. The packaging is also stunning, which adds to the luxe (pun intended) experience. It fades nicely. I also like to wear this lightly blotted on my lips. $6.50 ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in “heathers”: This is a pretty drying matte liquid lip formula, so prep your lips well. The color is so worth it - it’s a gorgeous, long-wearing oxblood red. These sometimes go on sale BOGO (which is how I got mine) so be on the lookout because I’m not sure this is worth $20 on its own. Want a drugstore dupe? NYX cherry skies is almost spot on for about $7. #Bite Beauty - Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick[products]#[FourStars] in “cassava”: This discontinued liquified lipstick is a deep plum-berry. It’s so comfortable on the lips and very opaque. Because it doesn’t dry down, it does transfer onto everything and fades faster (but still several hours of wear). I wish Bite hadn’t discontinued these, but I do recommend their lip crayons and amuse bouche bullet lipsticks. Bite usually offers sets, and they have a lab in Toronto and LA to create your own custom lipstick. You *may* be able to find this or other shades in this formula at TJ Maxx/Marshall’s. All brands are cruelty-free, and Bite is 100% vegan. #CheriePartner
