I was confused at first about how this works, but apparently the “nominees” are actual winners that receive the award! I don’t have many followers yet, so it is hard to decide whom to nominate, seeing as many of those that I follow are veterans on here, so they aren’t newbies like me! If I nominated you and you aren’t relatively new to this, then I am sorry, just take it as a compliment that I really enjoy your blog instead : ) 
    1. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers who are relatively new to blogging

Thursday, May 3, 2012

I was tagged by Tiffany at Happily Everandom to do this, so here it goes : )

1. What is your favorite beauty product that you have?

My Laura Mercier Powder Foundation!

2. What was the hardest product to get your hands on?

Fakebake Flawless Self Tanner!

3. What are your favorite clothing brands?

Forever 21, American Eagle, and Express!

4. What is the one product that you won't go out without?

Concealer...under eye circles run in my family BIG time!

5. Are you a nail polish junkie and what is your favorite shade right now?

I am not a junkie…yet. Lately I have become way more into nail polish. My favorite right now is “Lacey Lilac” by Sally Hanson.

6. What best describes your makeup looks most?

Natural & neutral.

7. What's your best beauty tip that worked for you?
Using real mayonnaise on hair as a mask. So moisturizing. Yes it smells bad, but the results are so worth it! Add a few drops of essential oils to make it smell better!

8. Are you a drugstore or high-end person?

I have no problem with drugstore brands. Butttttt I think for things like foundation I usually prefer a higher end brand, because it is going all over my face. For everything else I am happy with the drugstore, but I do purchase high-end as well.

9. What is the one drugstore product that you think tops high end?

Revlon lip butters-really pigmented, moisturizing, and affordable. Better than most high end lipsticks!

10. What's your favorite food?

Feta cheese…gross right? Don’t judge it sooooo good!

11. What's your favorite hairstyle right now?

I do not like putting a lot of heat on my hair…so waves created by having my hair in two buns!

I tag:

& any one else who would enjoy doing this : )


My Favorite: Foundation!

Monday, April 30, 2012

Recently, I bought a new foundation. I decided to stop trying to find a good liquid foundation, because none of them seemed to work with my oily skin, even the ones for oily skin! I did my research, and it literally was days of deciding, reading reviews, etc. but I finally decided on one. The one I chose was Laura Mercier Wet/Dry Powder Foundation. OH.MY.GOSH. Seriously best makeup decision ever haha! I love this. It is long wearing, keeps my face looking matte (but I don’t feel like I look just flat and boring) and super versatile. It is medium/full coverage when using the sponge wet, and light/medium when using a dry puff or brush for application. I cannot say enough good things about it. The color is also perfect for me, even though I ordered it online.  Here is what it looks like on my skin, without editing the picture:

And here is another:

I think this would be great for girls with combination to oily skin types. For drier skin, I think it could still work if using a moisturizing primer first.  I do not have much to cover (luckily) besides some redness, and occasional pimple. I basically use it for giving a "flawless" complexion on the days I don't want to be 'au naturale', and for oil control. SERIOUSLY IT'S PERFECT. I think I found my favorite foundation. The packaging pictures are in a previous post, but here is a picture from Sephora:
This puff comes in the box that the product comes in; I keep it in the cardboard box and rarely use it. If you can see the bottom part of this picture shows another compartment. This holds a sponge. The bottom compartment has holes in it so the compact isn't retaining as much moisture as it would in a fully enclosed compact.

If this looks like something you want to try, then I FULLY recommend it. It's a bit pricey, and will set you back about $40. However, I think it is really worth it!

Have you tried this product? What is your favorite foundation?
