Drugstore Picks: Foundation

 

"Ok ladies now let's get in foundation...." I've never been prouder of these words that just came out of my husband's mouth. A Beyonce-lyric-pun about my favorite makeup product ever created?!? My heart could burst.

 

We have taken a long ro...

DRUGSTORE PICKS: Sponges/Blenders

 

 If you haven't heard of the beauty blender....or seen these freaky little sponge-creatures in Department stores OR Drugstores in a makeup aisle for the last few years....say hello. Blending sponges are all the rage these days. They're...

If any makeup item is dear to my heart….its liquid foundation. While it would take a colossal turn-of-events to make me believe that a full-coverage Dept. store foundation isn’t the best….I know there HAVE to be some drugstore options out there for a girl like me with...

Welcome to February.

While I LOVE my full coverage foundation 95% of the time, I haven't wanted to use it much for the last week. Don’t get it twisted…I’ll always love it and I’ll never forsake it. But when I’m out in the sun all day, it’s hard to want to apply a normal face of makeup. Wit...

Foundation is personal. Let’s be real: your complexion takes up like 75% of your face and your face is the first thing people see when you greet them. The majority of people don’t greet you and stare at your elbows, (Creeps.) They look right at your face. So finding a...

Blemishes. Boo.

Discoloration. Boo.

Lady-mustaches. Boo.

 

Ok...lady-staches have nothing to do with foundation. But still, Boo them.

 

Anyone who has followed Makeup With Me for the last 6+ months has probably heard/read/noticed that I'm a super-fan of full-coverage foundat...

Let me rattle off a list of things that brushes can and usually improve: 

 

Excessively oily-skin

Breakouts

Foundation that looks too thin or splotchy

Foundation that looks too cakey

All of the World's problems. What?

 

A few good brushes will make your makeup look 100x better...
