The New Powder Foundation from Bare Escentuals

Powder foundations have come a long way.  Forget about being cakey and obviously powdery, today’s powder foundations are light-weight and actually leave the skin glowing instead of totally matte.

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 […]

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.
