It’s been a while since I’ve shared a new Beauty Talk with you guys. And if you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know it’s one of my favorite things to write about! I personally love reading beauty reviews, or watching tutorials, and find these kinds of post super helpful. I’ve been getting a few emails about my makeup routine, (specifically foundations & concealers) and I wanted to share a few of my current favorites. I know everyone’s skin is different, so I wanted to share a variety of products that I have purchased and used over the past several months.
Feel free to comment below with any questions! xx Ashley
Without a doubt the best full coverage (in my opinion) is Double Wear. I’ve mentioned it several times on here and will purchase this product again and again. Not only is this full coverage, but it is also long wear. It will stay on literally for an entire work day and well into the night. I love this foundation because it doesn’t feel cakey or heavy. Now, it can look heavy if you put on too much (I’ve made that mistake), so I am careful to use is sparingly on my beautyblender (my favorite). This is my go-to for photoshoots or days when I have back to back meetings. It may not be ideal for “everyday” but it is a great foundation. I wear color: 3W1 Tawny.
A couple of months ago, I got a sample in the mail from Amore Pacific. It was to try their new Anti Aging Cushion Foundation and they sent me a 3 day sample. I was pretty curious about the cushion application, but also a little intimidated by the product. The reviews were GREAT so I didn’t hesitate to try it out. This product came with a sponge applicator, but I really prefer to use my beauty blender.
I was pretty impressed with this foundation. So much that I went out and purchased the full size. It’s not as “full coverage” as the Double Wear, but it isn’t sheer either. It’s the perfect balance. This made my skin have a subtly glow, yet still provided a decent coverage. It goes on so smooth and applies even on my skin. This is definitely a costly purchase. I don’t wear it everyday, but save it for date night or special events. It did make me feel better to see that it comes with another sealed foundation cushion to replace when this one dries out. You can also flip the cushion to get more product out of it. All in all, I would recommend asking for a sample at the makeup counter or trying it on your own. It was a game changer! I wear color: 204
I love the Vitalumièr Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup. My in-laws got me this for Christmas last year and it is the perfect makeup for days when you really don’t want to wear any. Does that make sense? It’s a lighter coverage and makes your skin feel really good. I also love the smell! I wear this on the weekend or when I am just running errands. I also took this with me to the beach one the Summer. I apply with a damp beautyblender. I wear color: 30 Beige.
MY GO-TO CONCEALERS
I am new to try the Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid, but I am already a big fan. I really can’t see me going back to anything else! I wear the color ‘PINK’ because it is perfect for camouflaging dark circles. I use a swipe before foundation and a little bit after. This is very fluid and light weight. It doesn’t settle into fine lines or make you skin look dry. This is a favorite of mine! Apply with your beautyblender.
Ok, so I know this is called “BYE BYE Undereye” but I really prefer this to cover sunspots or blemishes. This is very thick so a little goes a long way. You could definitely use this as an under eye concealer, but I just prefer to use the Naked Skin concealer for my eyes.
I apply this with my Urban Decay Finger Brush and it blends perfectly. This brush is a must for anyone. It provides finger like control but the bristles help is blend really nice. I use it for my concealers but this brush can be used for anything!
