TRUE STORY, IT ALL STARTS WITH A GOOD FOUNDATION

foundations

Hey, hey, hey. I hope you have been enjoying the awesome month that is October. This week, I’ll be focusing on everything that is foundations + primers and everything in between.

Why?

Well, last month I started a wonderful new job. But with this new job comes two 54 minute commutes (yes I timed it) that includes a 15 minute walk in midtown Manhattan, complete with exhaust + humanity. Also included is 8.5 hours spent in recirculated air under unforgiving florescent lighting. Its taken its toll. By noon I look fine, by 2pm I look as expected, but by 5:30 I look like I haven’t slept in a week or eaten anything but processed food, neither of which is the case. I’ve tested five foundations, six primers, two concealers and three setting powders in the last month. Stay tuned to find out which ones worked and which ones failed under these extreme urban conditions!

Origins Vitazing Review

I don’t even know how this product crossed my path. No idea. I was on Sephora.com and it just appeared. I started reading review after review and I kept thinking is this shit as good as some people say? Or super orange like other reviews? I just had to know. I could  not stop thinking about it. So the other day I found myself in Origins.  Read More

Jammin’

So, I am in a bit of jam. I have my little cousins wedding in one hour, and my hotel room is not ready. Ugh, like a Girl Scout or MacGuyver, here are the products I am about to use in the hotel lobby to get ready!

This foundation stick requires no brush or sponge, just dab it onto your face and pat into your skin and bam, perfect canvas. 

This pot rouge in Raspberry, can go on lips and cheeks, making it one less thing to drag out of my bag

A dash of eyeliner (maybe, it is the afternoon)

This eyelash curler is amazing, I’ve gone through a bunch over the years and I keep coming back.  Using this makes it easier to skip the mascara- Also just noticed they make this in gold, super crush.

Also, CONGRATS Colleen & Shawn!!!!!
