My “No Makeup” makeup look:
Ambi facial moisturizer, BH Cosmetics face primer, Maybelline Fit Me foundation in 360, Fashion Fair foundation stick as under eye concealer in Toffee, Ben Nye face powder in Chestnut, highlighter Ben Nye face powder in Topaz.
Decided to change up my foundation and powder. Fashion Fair has proven to be just a little too heavy. I opted to try Maybelline Fit Me in 360 and Ben Nye’s Translucent Powder in Chestnut. For under eye highlighting, Ben Nye’s Topaz (always lighter than your normal shade) Ben Nye is theatrical makeup, and it is suppose to withstand sweating and lots of heat from lighting. I think it looks pretty natural
Off to my son’s award ceremony! My lighting is horrible! Makes the photos look so unnatural looking, or maybe it is the flash on my cell? but anyway….. I always apply a moisturizer to my skin before priming. Just keeping it simple today.
I’ve heard so much about this makeup line that I decided to go to the site for myself and check it out. ( http://www.bhcosmetics.com/ ) I get there and foundation is on sale for 3.95 each! So, I purchase the foundation and a makeup primer (on sale for 12.00) My color is in deep ebony. It arrived today, so I washed my Fashion Fair off, (which is expensive and trying to find a cheaper alternative)I opened the package, and I tried it on for the first time, and I’m wondering if I should purchase more or wait?? I forgot to apply the primer (bummer) I will tell you, I don’t even feel like there is anything on my face though.
However, I am deeply concerned because my under eye bags….what’s that about? I’m wondering if I didn’t apply enough when I highlighted???? I don’t know. So, the goal though is to look like I am barely wearing anything. I think it looks pretty natural? Original price for the foundation when not on sale is 9.00. I don’t know.. may just be one of those things I’ll consider a steal for the time being. sigh……Has anyone tried the Kat Von D foundation? I’ve heard raving reviews about that one!! But the price, whew!
So, I’m trying to get better at this manicure thing. I invested in a manicure & pedicure system. Tested it out very quickly today, and it’s okay. I figured I’d learn what I’m doing before investing in a more serious system.
