All about Face

I have been trying to find the best primer, foundation, concealer, and powder.
I have found my favorites so far and wanted to share!

I have been using primer for years but Makeup Forever has a great primer line that is custom for each skin color even for some skin conditions. It really does make your foundation and powder last longer so... if you ever have issues getting them to stay and you don't use a primer you may want to try one.

0 Neutral
(adds natural luminosity to the complexion)

1 Green
(minimizes redness - ideal for skin with rosacea)

2 Mauve
(counteracts sallow undertones)

4 Caramel
(combats ashiness in medium to dark skin tones/warms golden tones)

5 Blue
(adds radiance to fair skin/ reduces minor imperfections)

6 Yellow
(lightens dark complexions)

7 Pink
(brightens the complexion/ counteracts sallow undertones)

Nars Sheer Glow foundation is my FAVORITE!!!! See the 4 reasons below why I love!!!
1- Minimizes visible discoloration
2- Brightens and clarifies overall skin tone
3- Improves skin luminosity and radiance
4- Hydrates for softer and smoother skin
Now I have to admit these are Nars reasons to love this product as well but... I can say I have noticed a HUGE improvement in my skin since using this and your face doesn't feel like your wearing makeup yet the coverage ROCKS and to top it off your skin gets sort of a glow! I don't know if any other foundation can top this one for me!

Now onto the BEST concealer out there. Touche Éclat by YSL. When I purchased this I actually hadn't tested it but can I say I LOVE this! It helps with Dark circles, fine lines and signs of fatigue. I get dark circles under my eyes and seriously when I use it under my eyes brightens and gives you a little glow! Technically this is not an all over concealer but... I had a big red zit on my chin and thought let's see if it covers it and of course it did!!!

I used to not be a powder girl but it really does help set and keep foundation in place. The Mineralize Skinfinish Powder by MAC is the perfect powder because it's the perfect low coverage making your face almost look flawless while again not being too heavy which is the BEST part of it!!!

Hope you all try some of these out you will love them!!!
