Foundation Quest

For the love of foundations, I'm always on the hunt for new foundations. Though I am currently using products I do like, I like to switch things up and try something new every once in a while :)
Recent Sephora trips, I've managed to pick up a couple foundations.

I've purchased and used Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in the past, but I can't seem to remember how I liked it. I know I thought it was a nice foundation, but I don't remember if it was compatible with my skin, so this time I opt for the Nar Sheer Matte Foundation.

If you have combination/oily skin, let me know if you've used this or the Sheer Glow foundation before and let me know your thoughts on them. I will be purchasing the Sheer Glow soon, but I still want to know your thoughts between the two. Feel free to let me know if you've used these products never the less. Even though you might have different skin than I do, it's still nice to know your thoughts :)

Go To Fresh Summer Face !

Summer makeup, has anyone else experienced the struggles of keeping a fresh face during the summer heat? As some might know, I recent returned from my trip to Asia. As we all know Asia is known for its hot and humid weather. Here are the products I used to help keep my face staying fresh throughout the heat.

Makeup Forever & Urban Decay 

Some of my thoughts on these products :)

Makeup Forever Mat Velvet +

Trust me this product stays put all day, in hot weather, you name it this foundation is superb for the summer :) highly recommend giving this a try, especially for those who tend to get oily throughout the day.

Urban Decay De Slick / All Nighter

I never would have believed a spray would help control my oil and keep my makeup and face staying fresh. Definitely staple products not only for the summer, but year round =)

Makeup Forever Duo Mat Powder

For that extra step to lock in my foundation I set my face with powder. Pairing this powder along with the Mat Velvet + really gives you the security that your makeup won't budge.

While traveling, I like to keep everything as simple as possible, so I like to minimize as much makeup as possible. I looked clean and fresh without having to use much. Throughout the day I did have to blot away the.. *ahem* sweat u___u* but my skin radiant afterwards without having to retouch with extra powder.

Keep it simple n____n ! Nothing is more beautiful than letting your natural self shine ;)
