4 Foundations for Dry Skin

4 Foundations for Dry Skin: NYX Total Control Drop Foundation, Tarte Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation, Maybelline Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation on the Go, L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation Review

Finding a good foundation for dry skin can be a bit tricky. You’re leery of matte foundations because they can be drying and make you look casket sharp. Full coverage foundations can be iffy too. They often get cakey and leave you looking like Jim Carey in the Mask. Minus the green, of course!

So which foundations are suitable for dry skin?

Quite a few! There are many foundations that slay at making dry skin look smooth and flawless. Of course, it doesn’t always seem that way when so many brands are catering to the full coverage, matte look. But I’m here to guide you in the right direction with some pretty fantastic foundations that work wonders for dry skin!

Why be basic when you can be a unicorn? The world is going unicorn crazy right now and I’m all for it! Unicorns are magical and majestic. Everything life should be, in my opinion.

Currently, my schedule doesn’t permit such behavior so I’m living out my dreams vicariously through the new limited edition Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Collection. It’s filled with sparkly, glittery unicorn magic that’ll leave you feeling like a glowing mythical creature.

Happy April! I know I’m a couple days late but the start of a fresh, new month is always a cause to celebrate. Especially when it’s pushing us that much closer to summer. Yaaaaas! Besides sunny skies and fun vibes, I’m pretty pumped about April because there’s a ton of new products and collections rolling out right now and it’s got me bouncing off the walls. You know I’m all about enjoying new makeup!

I actually spent a great deal of March exploring new makeup too. After the dust from the holiday madness finally settled, brands started pumping out stuff left and right and I felt like Ash on a never-ending quest to catch them all. Obviously, I failed, because keeping up with every release is just obsessive. However, I did manage to try a handful of new products that turned out to be so amazing that I’m still reaching for them constantly. Here’s a peek at all the products I loved last month:

Now that we’ve got all of my January empties out of the way let’s move on to my faves, shall we? The plan was to get my faves and empties up together. But having a jam packed birthday weekend and then a crippling sinus infection the following week really threw me off. Way off. I’m talking mouth breathing for 4 days straight and putting my pants on backwards for an interview off. LOL!

Needless to say, January was a very long month but a lot of good came from it. Like ringing in the New Year and spending my birthday and Valentine’s Day with my amazing boyfriend. And trying a handful of new products that turned out to be the bomb.com. There’s nothing better than love and good makeup, right?

Who knew that trip would bless us with 2 new Tarte palettes right in time for the new year? For quite some time now, Tarte has been inching highlighters into their lineup bit by bit.

Happy New Year! Is it just me or is anyone else glad that the holiday season is finally over? When you work in retail the holiday season feels like a rollercoaster. As Thanksgiving approaches, it’s like you’re slowly chugging up that massive hill preparing for that stomach wrenching drop. Once Thanksgiving finally rears its head, you’re at the top of the hill and it’s starting to drop down at the speed at light. That’s exactly how this past holiday season felt. A long, crazy paced, never-ending rollercoaster. I’m exhausted!

Believe it or not, I’m just now getting a chance to slow down and round up my 2016 faves and my Christmas gifts to share with you. It’s crazy how much I missed you guys! Work has been kicking my butt but one of my goals for the new year is to be more engaged with you and to give you more quality content than you can handle. So the show must go on!

Tarte Tarteist Pro Palette Swatches on Dark Skin

Are you ready for another neutral eyeshadow palette? No? Too bad. ‘Cause they’re still coming! I know after a while the sudden influx of neutral eyeshadow palettes that pop up year after year gets old. You quickly go from, “OMG, I need that new palette!” to “How many shades of browns are there, really?” I was stuck in between the two when Tarte released the new Tarteist Pro Palette. I love Tarte’s Amazonian Clay eyeshadow formula so I was excited to see them whip up a new palette. However, once I took a good look at the Tarteist Pro Palette I started to wonder, “What makes this so different from every other neutral palette on the market?”
