TBH, I’m going for more natural beauty these days and so a face full of foundation just doesn’t appeal to me, but I am a fan of Stay All Day Foundation for the days (or nights) when you want better coverage and more of a done look.   The new packaging on this foundation gem […]

Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint Review

When it comes to makeup trends, this year is going to be all about real skin.  We’ve done the contour, the strobing, the weightless foundation that still covers like crazy, but now take a step back and get back to basics.  Take care of your skin, conceal where and if needed, and try to do […]

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

This is the most hyped foundation on Instagram, and with good reason: it provides good coverage, comes in natural-looking colours, and looks natural on your skin. But here’s the catch: it’s very similar to Make Up For Ever’s new Ultra HD Foundation.  I only realized this because I was squirting both foundations on the back of […]

Everyday Flawless Skin with MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation

Ok, so the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation is my fancy foundation and it photographs so well, but for everyday, easy-to-use foundation I use MAC Studio Waterweight foundation because it has a light serum-like consistency that spreads easily with my fingers.  It is also SPF 30 so it’s great to have on during […]

New Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation

I gotta say it: although I keep trying tons of different foundations, and have two on the go right now, Make Up For Ever HD Foundation is my holy grail foundation because it has a colour that matches my skin perfectly.  It’s yellow, but not too yellow, and has just the right amount of warmth for […]

New Awesome Foundation Brush: Sephora Collection Pro Full Coverage Airbrush #53

Yes, it’s time to wax poetic about another fantastic foundation brush: the Sephora Collection Pro Full Coverage Airbrush #53.

Currently Wearing: Hourglass Immaculate Liquid-Powder Foundation

  For the past month or so, this has been my jam… I first got my hands on this foundation back in 2013 and I was new to Hourglass makeup then.  This was a splurge and it was a great introduction to the brand.   Others have come and gone since then and there have been […]

Dior Nude Air Serum Foundation

If you’re looking for foundation that is weightless, the new serum foundations are the way to go.  They not only deliver good coverage, but because every single brand seems to have a version, you can find the perfect one for you. Here’s my advice: stick with the brand that usually has options for your specific […]

New Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation

Urban Decay is totally becoming my favourite brand of makeup.  Previously, too bold or brash for my tastes, lately they’ve held on to their bold roots, but they’ve also managed to introduce lots of core products that work for everyone.  The Naked palettes were a great example of that – finally, all neutral/nude colours that […]
