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.
