Hey everyone! How's your day/evening going? My day has been boring...Wake up, make up, go to school, go home, go online, youtube, blog check, TV all night long. However, to be honest, I'd rather stay at home all day than to go outside and "have fun".
Here's my Everyday Mineral collection (face/cheeks), since I've been getting this request multiple times on Youtube. Somehow people are very interested in my "collection" (who am I to talk, I ask other ppl to show their collection too!). Here are the pics (forgot to take pics of the brushes, d'oh!):
Total (only foundation and cheeks):
I am between a MAC NC25-NC30, and I think Fairly Light is a pretty good match for me. I love the coverage of Everyday Mineral's foundations, they make me look so airbrushed and glowy! They have 4 different kinds of foundation formulas:
1. Matte--For people with very oily skin or like that VERY matte look. I personally am not a fan of the Matte formula because I find it looks cakey on me (and other people). However, if you get oily very easily, feel free to give this a try.
2. Intensive--For people that love FULL coverage. If you have scars or discoloration, you will LOVE this. However, I'd suggest to use with a light hand, since it will look cakey as well if you use too much on one spot. I think that you should SERIOUSLY consider getting a moisture spray on top of this formula (although I use the spray for EVERY formula, but I think this is CRUCIAL for this particular formulat). As a side note, the foundation colors in intensive formula are DARKER than the other formulas.
3. Semi Matte--For people at have Combo skin that want to look matte but not too matte. It covers pretty well without looking cakey. This is my 2nd fave formula in Everyday Minerals.
4. Original Glow-- My FAVE!!!! I love how this makes me GLOW! Not like a sweaty glow, but ethereal glow from within. This contains a very pretty luminosity, but it's not over the top. HG!
I usually apply the EDM foundation with a large fluffy brush that's dampened with moisture spray (usually Ben Nye Moisture Spray b/c it's identical to MAC Fix+, only around $3 ($12) cheaper for 3 TIMES AS MUCH PRODUCT!). Then I use a Kabuki brush to smooth it over to blend things to perfection. Then I proceed to my other things (eyes, cheeks, etc). Then I spray MAC Fix+ on top of everything to bring out the glow. In order to show you the amazing coverage to EDM foundations...
Here's the before (I know I look like shit, and as you can tell, I have REALLY dark circles, severe discoloration, and lots of acne scars)...
Here's my face after Lavender concealer all over my face (to elimiate sallowness due to yellow undertone)...
and Voila! Perfect skin (with back to school blush)
