When it comes to base makeup, I prefer something natural and a base that will give me a skin like finish, but still provides some coverage. There are a lot of light coverage foundations that I love (read about my favorite bases for dry skin here) but I recently picked up some new releases and had the chance to test them out before I left on vacation.
I love using cream products in summer. Especially in humid and hot weather, I just prefer creams over powder because I find that they wear better on my skin. When it comes to cream blushes, I prefer a more natural, almost dewy finish. As for the formula, you have to be careful with creams as they can move or lift your base. The ones I’ll mention here don’t do that and work for most skin types.
Mac Mirage Noir Collection is Mac’s Summer Collection for 2018. It features beautiful duo-chrome packaging and products ranging from lipsticks, to single eyeshadows and bronzers. The Mirage Noir Collection will launch on May 14th online and May 17th in stores.
Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise in Star Gold and Rose Gold are the two new limited edition shades that just launched. I am a big fan of the Eyes To Mesmerise formula and already have all the shades that are part of the permanent line, so of course I had to get the new shades.
I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited about face powder! I don’t use a lot of setting powders (don’t like the matte look) but the Hourglass Veil Translucent Powder is on another level amazing. The Ambient Lighting Powders are my go-to’s when it comes to powders because I love the glow veil that they give, but those don’t set your makeup, they are finishing powders.
