Applying your foundation should be an easy, streamlined process. This is a video will show you how I apply my foundation.  Stay tuned for additional videos on blush and highlighting/contouring (for everyday)!

Products Used:

  • MAC Strobe Cream (Not recommended if you are being photographed a lot–it’s better for in-person viewing, ha!)
  • Korres Silicone-Free Primer (Review)
  • Make Up For Ever HD Foundation (Review)
  • MAC 109 Brush (Review)
  • MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder (Review)
  • Water

How do you apply your foundation?

P.S. – Today I learned that it’s not “Korres,” it is “Kor-ess.”  So, pretend like I said it the right way. :)

The Hit List

Best Mineral Makeup Brand? What brand/product wins this category?

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009


5L, 17L, 20L, 12L, 7L, 15L, 10L

Aqua Eyes Eye Liner

Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Eyes line is probably one of the top eyeliner formulas on the market to-date.  It’s extremely budge-proof, smudge-proof, and water-resistant.  It actually holds up quite well to all three claims.  Add to that a diverse range of color choices (Sephora sells 25), and you have a winning combination.   They’re smooth, well-pigmented, and deliver long-lasting color.

  • #5L is a khaki-bronze with a hint of green in it. It’s like a deep, slightly green-toned antique gold. I love wearing this with golds, browns, and greens.
  • #17L is a soft, yellowed spring green with soft shimmer sheen. I was hoping for a little more chartreuse in it, but it’s still a nice, subtle liner color.
  • #20L is a forest-green with teal in it. I adore this one — a definite must-have. I pair it with blues, teals, and greens.
  • #12L is a dark blue with a subtle shimmer-sheen. It’s not super unique, but it’s a nice blue shade.
  • #7L is a nice pop of blue-based turquoise. It’s the brightest color that I own.
  • #15L is an violet-blue shade. I liked this one, because I felt like it was fairly unique. I don’t have anything like this in my collection of eye liners.
  • #10L is a bronzy-copper. It’s very “me” in a sense, because I love these kinds of warm-toned bronzes. It’s great with warm-toned looks, particularly neutral looks, for an extra kick.
