it's always fun and exciting to revamp my makeup staples!
however, it wasn't until i had a lovely lunch date with MAC and Romero Jennings who is the Director of Makeup Artistry [i had my fangirl moment, it was bliss!!!] that i fell deeply in love with each product he recommended! as soon as he mentioned his favorite foundation for my needs i ran to the closest counter and grabbed my shade [NC15], been using it for almost 2 weeks and i am loving it!!!
the pro longwear nourishing waterproof foundation has holy grail status!
but as he said, no makeup is ever going to be good enough if you don't take care of the skin first!
i still need to get my hands on the charcoal mask but this Mineralize charged water has been perfect as a base for my foundation to glide on and stay on! despite the heat! but prepping the oily areas of my skin with the skin refined zone treatment that blurs the pores without clogging them [the perfect balance of not too much not too little]
[MAC Bronzing Powder in BRONZE with natural light and flash]it couldn't be summer if we didn't bronce our skin to make it warm and sun kissed!
even though i am pale and having an orange stripe on the cheeks seems to be a faux-pas, when done smoothly and well blended in the right places, it just warms up the complexion in a simple step.
highlighting the best features so they catch the light and make you look healthy and alive!
[MAC Paint Pot in PAINTERLY + BLACKGROUND]i have been a long time fan of Paint Pots! i have oily lids and ever since i started playing with makeup my biggest pet peeve was creasing lids half an hour after finishing my makeup! so cream bases that make your shadow stay in place plus adding some extra dimension making them pop is a win-win in my book!
it can take you from naturally polished to neutral defined to smokey date night… perfection!!!
keeping the face simple this time, eyes and blush were courtesy of the bronzer!
it's summer, so as fresh and easy as in can get my face sorted to be out the door and go, the better.
