The Quest for the Holy Grail…of foundations.

2 May

I know several people who hate wearing foundation or those who only wear it for special occasions  and I’m not going to lie, I am jealous of them.

Since I have red, uneven skin due to a skin condition called rosacea I have been questing for the perfect foundation for years.

100% Pure Healthy Skin foundation has been my go to foundation for the last year.

Dupe War #5 – Setting Spray

26 Apr

Do you want your makeup to last longer and to not rub off onto the clothes of people you hug?

We have the solution for you!

Make-up setting Spray!  “What is it?” you ask.  It’s like hairspray for your face!!!!  (well, sort of.  It’s totally not sticky and gross or anything.)  It also doubles as a nice refreshing mist for after workouts or hot days.  Seriously, before using a setting spray I ruined by boyfriends h&m “cool dude” blazers by hugging him and leaving behind a face ghost.  Let me tell you face ghosts aren’t scary, they are just gross.

Original –  Urban Decay All Nighter Longer Lasting Make-up Setting Spray – $14 (1 oz) or $29 (4 oz)

What it is:
A technologically advanced and hypoallergenic makeup setting spray that’s suited for all skin types and keeps your makeup in place for up to 16 hours.

What it does:
According to Sephora, as the final step to your makeup routine, this weightless, super-fine mist is formulated with Urban Decay’s patent-pending Temperature Control Technology, which lowers the temperature of your makeup to hold foundation, eye shadow, blush, and concealer in place. Makeup looks picture-perfect all day long through wind, heat, and cold. All Nighter works expertly on all skin types and prevents loss of color, melting, sliding, caking, cracking, excess shininess, fading blush, eye shadow, and lip color disappearance. It’s also formulated to resist moisture, so you can fearlessly sweat, cry, or get your Jacuzzi on—you’re guaranteed makeup that always looks just-applied, without ever feeling sticky or tight. Backed by years of science, it’s unlike any other product available and keeps you looking flawless with just a couple sprays over your makeup.

Pro – Tip : Radiant skin on a budget

17 Apr

Ladies, exfoliating your lovely faces is a must in your regular beauty routine. How else do you think we are able to keep our youthful appearances?

Certain friends in the med spa business have told us “Girl, you need to scrub daily!”  And because we listen to anyone in a lab coat, we do.

There are so many products on the market aimed to exfoliate and scrub and promise to reveal a more youthful you. A lot of those products are really good, but the costs add up. Especially if you are looking to do this every day. Also to keep in mind, many drug store scrubs are actually very harsh and can break capillaries causing damage to your skin. Dreadful!

Don’t fret, we found a solution in the form of raw silk!

What it is – MicrodermaMitt $27.00 for 1
