img_6843

Hi Loves I hope everyone is getting in the Holiday Spirit! This is one of my favorite times of the year because I LOVE the Holidays!! Spending time with my family is by far the highlight of the Holidays for me because I live about three hours away from them. But let’s get into this post which is about concealer! Concealer is one of my favorite makeup items. Specifically concealer to highlight, I think it truly does take a makeup look to the next level. For about two years now NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer was my Ride or Die!!!! This was the only high end concealer I used to highlight. About two months ago I decided to step out the box and try something new, the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme. I must admit I’m SO happy I tried it!

Review: Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation

Ultra HD

Hi Loves!!!!! I know it has been a while since my last post! To be honest…I haven’t been wearing makeup in the past couple of weeks. However FALL is around the corner and I’m super excited to start wearing some Fall looks! But today I will finally be doing my review on the new MUF Ultra HD Foundation! I was a big fan of the MUF HD Foundation and was a little sad when they said it would be discontinued. There was about six months straight were I only wore the HD Foundation! I considered it a holy grail. So of course I had to try out the Ultra HD to see if I would be in love! So let’s get into the review!

Packaging 

If you are familiar with the HD Foundation the packaging of the Ultra HD Foundation is no different besides the silver ring under the top. This foundation comes in a plastic 1 fl. oz. bottle with a pump. It’s great for travel because the bottle is plastic and the top snaps on.

Skin Care: Best Foundation is Healthy Skin!

IMG951149

Hi Loves!! There was a request on my IG (Hey Kay!) to talk about skin care. Now I was a little hesitant to do this topic because I have really struggled with my skin in the past. The reason I even started to wear makeup was because I wanted to hide how bad my skin was. However, as I got more into it I realized good skin was the key to beautiful makeup. So now I wear makeup because I WANT too, not because I HAVE too. The picture above is my bare face, and believe it or not that’s how I am 85% of the time! So first things first a little history…

IMG951147The picture on the left is from 2012 my senior year of college. My skin was in pretty bad shape. #1 reason STRESS!! Engineering at Northwestern…yea enough said. Also lack of sleep, poor eating habits, and lets be honest.. it was college so I’m sure the alcohol to water ratio didn’t help! I was also very inconsistent with my skin care routine always looking for a quick fix and switching up products all the time. Once I graduated I vowed that I would get my skin together. I no longer wanted to rely on makeup. The picture on the right is from 2015. Lets get into the products that helped me get here.

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.
