The new Makeup Forever ultra HD foundation has been the talk of the town for the last few months. I was a little late to the game, but I’m glad I tried it nonetheless. This foundation is right up the current trend season with the Ultra HD part, since all makeup companies now want Continue reading →
I recently worked with the beautiful Kelly from Kale Me Kelly to create a wedding guest appropriate look for the wedding she was invited to. Our goal was to keep her face glowing and dewy, and the rest of the makeup to look fresh faced. Mission accomplished! Be sure to Continue reading →
Long time no talk, but I’m back to fix that problem. Spring is in full force here in Atlanta- actually, I should say summer is here already. So in the spirit of that, today’s post is the first in my spring fashion outfit post!
I’ve been dying to get my hands on the perfect yellow clutch. I have seriously been searching for years! So when I finally found this gem on Rue La La, I knew it had to be mine. Being that my makeup artist mind has color theory embedded in it, I immediately knew that yellow and blue is the look I wanted to pair together for you guys. How did I do?
Denim is still going strong, and my perfect way to pair a simple denim shirt is with white jeans
I picked up this warrior style chunky bracelet in Thailand, and I love wearing it especially with muted tones like this denim shirt
I left the bottom button of the shirt undone to give the look an effortless feel
No combo goes better together than yellow and blue! This clutch is the perfect shade of canary yellow
I decided to amp up the sass with the buckled shoes. To dress it down a bit, you can always go for a basic nude pump
I like to stick with basic rules for my body shape. Loose top = tight pants
I was anticipating the arrival of the new Nars foundation for quite some time, and when I finally had the chance to try it out, I jumped all in. I wasn’t expecting a miracle due to the fact that the sheer glow (also by Nars) no longer works on me and I had pretty much given up on the possibility of any foundation being a holy grail after the MUFE mat velvet due to my oily skin woes. However, this foundation is a game changer. I wear the shade Syracuse for reference.
It is the THINNEST consistency FOUNDATION I have ever used, and it still has an insane amount of coverage. I would say its medium/full to full coverage. You only need one pump for your entire face- and this pump only dispenses a small amount, not the amount most pumps dispense! Not only that, it has the most gorgeous, luxurious velvet texture to it that makes it photograph really well, and looks like real skin. Once you apply it, it doesn’t look slippery or “wet” or “sticky” and therefore does not have to be powdered- thats a personal preference.
Also, its been wearing really well on my oily skin. I get about 5 hours of wear without any shine at all, and when it does start to shine, its the good, non oily kind. I find myself having to blot only after 7-8 hours, and thats only because I like it to be 100%..but honestly, its not a must. I do wear a translucent powder over it regardless.
And lastly, it photographs beautifully!!
