Holy Grail Products

I Lurv These Products

Every now and then when I'm putting on my makeup, someone will say, "What's that you're using? Never heard of it" and I'm just like WHAAAT how have you lived your whole life without trying/loving this?! This list of products include my holy grail setting powder and concealer.

Hard Candy's Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer

If I didn't use this concealer every day I would look like a deranged swamp monster. Especially when the monthly friend knocks me hard this is a DEFINITE must in my makeup routine. Holy grail concealer hands down.

With the super thick consistency offering maximum coverage, it can cover even the most beastly of pimples. Can also be used on the under the eye for those dark bags (with a somewhat light hand -this is SO thick it can cake up). The cute little concealer pencil it also comes with is handy at getting small areas and you can put it in your purse. I love that it's so convenient to pick up (I found mine at Walmart for $6). This is comparable to the the Kat Von D tattoo concealer, which runs at a price of $25. AKA go get you summma this because it's a total steal.

TIP: Something I love to do is mix this concealer with my daily moisturizing lotion together and put it on my face. This way it offers the medium coverage I like but it's not as heavy on my face like a foundation is. Sometimes i add a touch more concealer if i have any real doozies.


Shiseido's Sun Protection Compact Foundation

HOLY GRAIL SETTING POWDER. Yes I'm aware they call it foundation, but it's a powder foundation. It is a high end product retailing at $27, but it is WORTH IT. Pinky promise.

The creamy powder blends smoothly and even on your face. It provides full coverage, which I love. I wear it in 3 different ways:
1.) By Itself: Since this is a powder foundation it can be worn alone. I prefer liquid foundation topped with powder usually though. But for those days where I'm in a rush or not going anywhere special I just smooth this onto my face to even my complexion and hide some of those naaaaaasty zits.

2.) Over A Liquid Foundation: When I want a full coverage routine I'll use this as my setting powder. It's always important to set your face with a powder so you can lock everything in -you don't want your foundation moving around throughout the day. It will control my oils (I can get rul rul greasy) and give me that matte flawless finish look.

3.) In the Summer: This powder foundation has an SPF of 34 -perfect for sun protection. I'm the girl that will wear makeup to the beach -don't judge me. I need something on my face or I wouldn't have any friends to go to the beach with in the first place. I do tan at the beach, but I don't tan my face because I don't want wrinkles - so I loooove this.


These products are AMAZINGGGGGG and with acne prone skin I give myself a pat on the back for discovering these products.

Keep Blushing,

Alexa
