Cosmetic Case of the Mondays

I hope everyone had a great weekend! The weather was absolutely beautiful this weekend and I took as much advantage as I could!

With us being in May now and the temperature finally warming up throughout the country, I’m all about that glow! In addition to using highlighters (see below for some of my faves), I’m now really into using a luminous foundation to start and I’m currently obsessed with the following:

nars luminous weightless found

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (Splurge): Available in 20 shades (I use Barcelona), this light foundation feels like silk on my skin! It’s full coverage but since it’s so silky feeling, it’s still a very natural look. That’s what makes this foundation so different than others, aka the shit, because it’s able to provide the full coverage in a long-wear formula (up to 16 hours!) so you can achieve the complete coverage without looking like it’s caked on. Just make sure you shake the bottle before applying.

maybelline dewy

Maybelline Fit Me! Dewy + Smooth Foundation (Save): Available in 16 shades (I use 220 – Natural Buff), this drug store foundation also feels like amazing (and affordable) silk on my skin. It hydrates, moisturizes, and makes skin look smooth all while giving a natural look. It’s great for dry skin and gives a dewy finish as opposed to exaggerating dry patches like some other foundations. It also contains SPF 18.

Tip: If neither foundation offers as full of coverage as you want because it’s of the lightweight formulas, try applying these over another foundation of your choice. I’m currently pairing these over the MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation (I use NW25) at night.

Looking for a new highlighter? I love this MAC Prep + Prime pen in Bright Forecast, this Givenchy Mister Light pen in Mister Macaroon, and of course the cult classic YSL Touche Eclat pen in 2.5 Luminous Vanilla. And I also like using The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Luminizing Powder and dying to get my hands on the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette.

Cheers to a great week!
