Best Beauty Buys

I’ve decided to start a new weekly post to showcase my favorite beauty buys. Don’t worry, I am NOT turning this into a beauty blog – I am no expert and I don’t claim to be. But I do have an army of tried and trues that I use daily:

1. Foundation: Urban Decay Naked Skin

Seriously you guys, this baby comes in a huge range of colors and it gives the perfect ‘I want coverage without looking like I’m wearing foundation’ look. I’m not one to spend a fortune on all my makeup (I like a good mix of hi-lo) but foundation and primer are places I don’t skimp.

**Sephora has a sick tool that scans your skin and immediately matches your skin to all the foundations in the store. No, I’m not kidding and YES it really works. No more guess-work.

2. Brushes: Sephora Collection Foundation Brush $24.00

Says it’s a powder brush, but my resident make-up expert and BFF Shiva recommended this baby to me. AND IT’S AMAZING. I always struggled with applying foundation – I went from sponges to my fingers, to a flat foundation brush and back again. Until I found this baby.

I put a pump or two of foundation (depending how much coverage you want) on the back of my hand and dip my brush that way. I apply by moving the brush in circles around my face (start at the T-zone and work your way out).

I kid you not, it’s amazing.

  1. I also use naked foundation + brush combo. Love it! Official convert to liquid foundation after this product. In search of new blush- so if you have any suggestions, let me know. I currently use Nars Orgasm, but ready to try something new.

    • I’m truly obsessed with the combo. I’ll cover blush on Monday in my beauty buys post!! I’m also a big fan of NARS, without loving the price.

      Are you still in the ‘Burgh? If so, we should get together soon!

      • Yes still in the burgh! Message me on FB (or text me, I don’t know if you have my number)- I would love to hang out- also a Gabes fan- perhaps a visit in our future?! Or if your pup wants to play sometime I know of two guys who are always looking for new friends 🙂
