Review: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

IMG_4355

Hi Loves!! Today I am going to do a review on the “new” NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. I’m sure you guys have heard about this foundation, it’s everywhere!!! Everyone has been talking about it so I thought I would give you my thoughts.

This is what they say about the product on NARS’s website:

Full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear. Highly pigmented and perfectly balanced, this breakthrough formula builds and blends effortlessly with just one drop—the result of exclusive innovation uniquely designed to deliver long-wearing full coverage, weightlessly. Shake, pump and blend in sections for complete coverage that’s completely natural looking.

First thing: packaging is beautiful, nice frosted glass, matte black top and a PUMP!!! But the glass is not the best for travel. Second thing I appreciate about the product is the color selection. There are 20 different colors to choose from, light to dark, warm to cool tones. The shade I picked up was Macao. Just for reference I am NC50 in M.A.C. Studio Fix Fluid and 177 in MUFE HD Foundation.

BROWS!!!

Processed with Moldiv

Hey Loves! This post will be about how I fill in my brows. Brows frame the face and I truly think they can make or break a look! I am new to the camera I’m using (Thanks Mommy <3) so please bear with me with the pictures. They will surely get better!

The first thing I do is brush my brows UP with a spooly. This will help get your hairs in place so you can see where they need to be filled in.

My Favorite Brushes

DSCN0673

Hi Loves! This is my first post on Raia’s World. I’m super excited to start blogging! The first topic is brushes. I honestly feel that once I started using brushes to apply my makeup it started to look a lot better! I don’t want you to get so caught up on brands…although I will be sharing my favorite brands, it’s the type of brush that is really important.

Eye Brushes

Eyebrushes

 No matter what product I use to fill in my brows I always use a spooly to blend the product out. You can get this from anywhere!! The one I’m currently using is a two-sided #12 Anastasia Beverly Hills brow brush. The other end is a small angled brush that I use to fill in my brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow. The last brush I use for my brows is a EB 23 Sedona Lace brush. I use this bigger angled brush to clean around my brows with concealer.

To pack on color to the lid I use small eyeshadow brushes. My favorites are the MAC 213 brush which picks up shimmer colors very well and a crown brush I got from IMATS LA. It has no number but I think it was only $3.

The next eye brush are crease brushes that I use to apply a transition color between the brow and lid. My transition color is usually a flesh tone color to defuse harsh lines. My all time favorite crease brush is the EB 09 brush from Sedona Lace. It picks up color well and is a dream for blending. My next go to crease brush is the Real Techniques duo-fiber eye brush.

The next crease brushes I use are to place colors in my outer v area and deepen my crease color. Both of these brushes are good because they come to a point but are still fluffy enough to blend into your lid color. The two I reach for the most are the Sedona Lace EB15 (can you see a theme here lol) and a crown brush I got from IMATS LA.

The last eye brush I use is from BH Cosmetics (got in a set). It is a flat definer brush that I use to put color on my lower lash line. I am really into smoking out my lash line, whether it’s with a pop of color or just smoking out my eyeliner. This brush works great.
