It’s not too often I leave the house without foundation. Not that confident about my bare skin right now so I have to fake before I make there if you know what I mean.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t look your best, even if it’s just a grocery store run. I mean you never know who you might run into. It’s always when you didn’t think about it is when your ex or friend from collage spots you in aisle 3. Damn. Be prepared. Be confident.
I flawless face that looks like my skin does wonders. I can’t tell you how much money I have spent on finding the right shades. As a women of color, this proves to be more difficult even with my middle of the road skin tone which carries a lot of yellow, then yellow to bronze in the summer. This is hard to find when there are soooo many pink, neutral, and orange undertones. No ash or muddiness here please!
The other problem with having a middle of the road skin tone is that more than half of the world does too! So my shades are always gone. If you ever go to the make up counter and see a spot missing, super dug into, or color just plain gone, it’s probably my shade.
My skin issues run the gamut of large pores and dark patches that need to be filled and covered up. My bare bones basics are IMAN Second to None Luminous Foundation stick and Powder compact. I will panic if I start running low. Even though it’s considered a drugstore makeup, the finish is all the way department store. I can only by it online so I will by multiples at a time. Too Faced Born This Way Concealer is EVERYTHING! I can even use it for all over if needed. Very creamy and looks like skin.
My beauty wants are Tom Fords The Ultimate Bronzer, Natasha Denona’s Gold Palette, and Kevyn Aucoin’s Neo Blush. All can be found on Beautylish.
My go to fragrances for Spring are Pacifica’s Tahitian Gardenia fragrance products. If you love the smell of gardenia’s, this is heaven. I feel so happy when I wear it. Best of all, this company is 100% Vegan and Cruelty Free! Don’t miss out on the awesome Loyalty Rewards Program that earns $$ back when you shop.
Jo Malone can take my $$$ any day. I love everyone of her fragrances which uses the best essential oils for a fragrance that will last all day. You’ll have fun mixing and matching at the boutique to get just the right one for you.
There’s power in looking, smelling and feeling good to match the beauty already inside you.
