I have some new beauty faves you guys! I have a new fave concealer and foundation! A few months ago I got a makeup lesson at Blushington and learned about so many great new-to-me products. What I especially love is that they use all different brands, so unlike when you get your makeup done at the department store, you can pick the best products from each line. In my lesson, I found that my old foundation was not the right color for my skin! And the product the makeup artist introduced me to was Stila Stay All Day Foundation. It’s oil free and has botanical extracts that promote circulation and really let’s your skin breathe. It is also supposed to help slow down premature aging…maybe too late for that one with me.
This color matched perfectly and I decided to purchase this and use it daily. And I had never used the Beauty Blender before. It’s amazing! I have never been a girly girl so I don’t keep up on makeup trends or products. I know this tool has been out for a while, but after finally seeing it in use, I had to get one! It puts on your foundation so smoothly, is easy to blend and build color with and leaves an amazing finished look! A dummy (like me) can use it. This Stay All Day foundation, really does, stay all day. I am so impressed with this foundation. It has truly stayed on in this summer heat (and even the high heat of the desert!).
My concealer color was also off. When the makeup artist put this Julie Hewett concealer on me, my dark circles disappeared! It was crazy! My dark circles are ever-present and mostly allergy induced which means it isn’t like a little extra sleep is going to help a sister out. This was the first time that a concealer really covered them. She had me use a brush to apply and although I continued that routine over the next week, I finally decided that the end result was better with using my finger to apply. I’m just guessing here but I am pretty sure my adorable makeup artist was about 15 years younger than me so she’s not familiar with fine lines and bags in the under-eye area…using the brush made the product build up in the crevices and aged me. It is not the same case with using my finger. Phew. This cream formula feels thick but goes on really smoothly and stays put. I might use a little Ooh La Lift if I’m going out to dinner and not redoing my whole face but the concealer coverage is amazing. I haven’t seen this product in stores but I ordered it online via Dermstore and it showed up in just a few days!
What is your fave foundation? Let’s talk beauty.
