Here he is! Will add to shop soon. Thoughts?
So here is my base makeup post!! It's finally here, and I have different types of base products to talk about (tinted moisturizer, serum foundation, cc cream, powder foundation, and full coverage foundation.)
🔴Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free (Natural): This has a very light coverage (almost none) because it's a tinted moisturizer, but you can build it up to a medium coverage. This is quite sticky and thick, and because it containts spf, it smells like a typical physical sunscreen. This would be really good for a really good skin day because it just evens out the skin tone. Not cakey and feels comfortable throughout the day. Btw the color is perfect for me, it oxidizes a bit to adapt to my natural skin tone.
🔴The Ordinary Serum Foundation (2.0 Light Neutral): I've written a review about this but let's just go through this again quickly. This is a very runny foundation that gives light to medium coverage, and feels really lightweight. It can rub off really easily if you touch or blot your face.
🔴It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ (Tan): This color is a little too dark for me but i still love this anyway. It's supposed to be light to medium coverage but it looks full to me. Can be a little bit cakey on my oily skin but I don't mind. I find that my skin looks so much better with this cc cream after six hours of wearing it. It's like the product sinked into my skin and made my skin look so good without looking like I'm wearing foundation.
🔴Kat Von D Lock It Powder Foundation (Medium 57): This claims to be full coverage but to me it's more of a medium, but still enough coverage for me. It feels light on the skin and doesn't get cakey when I touch up throughout the day. It does oxidize a little bit. They do come with the puff and I use it for a fuller coverage, and I use my brush for lighter coverage.
🔴Elf Acne Fighting Foundation (Sand): This color is a little dark on me, and it's also very red, but it has a nice full coverage. It's very thick but feels alright on the skin. This oxidizes quite a lot, not too much but it can be noticeable. I don't know if it helped with my acne though, but it didn't irritate my skin.
How do you stay at peace when life gets a little crazy?

Share your best tips here (emoji form = extra credit) because I know someone (probably me) will need a fresh idea or two at some point this week👇🏽
If you haven’t gotten into #kbeauty
yet then you may not have seen this brand yet, but @cosrx
has some GREAT skincare and makeup. This moisturizer is like water on the skin, cooling and hydrating with no stickiness.
Sorry for not posting these past few days!! I'll be posting a new review tomorrow. But for now enjoy this lipsticks illustration that I made 😬😬

has the cutest packaging, all of their products smell amazing, and best of all THEY WORK! These masks are two of my favorites because the focus is moisture. I’ve really tried to stay away from full face clay masks because they seem to dry me out too much. Pro tip: apply these with a flat foundation brush to cut down on contamination from your hands. I got these bbs at @ultabeauty
If you follow my gal @katiejanehughes
then you have seen this miracle salve used every which way. The kicker is that you can buy it at WHOLE FOODS! Or @rickys_nyc
if you’re in NYC 👌

I'd rather listen than talk...
Girl, you can never have too much ✨glitter✨. (Swipe for more sparkling action)
May your WKND plans be as awesome as @Glowperfecto
‘s flatlay 🙌🏻😍
Remember a couple years ago when we were all blissfully unaware as to how important our eyebrows were 🤨
Sometimes, a little glitter is all we need!🌟 Swipe to watch how the shine is painted on, after numerous layers of watercolour. This is followed by more layers of paint. Applying lipstick is way much easier than painting this.😅
Shall I go all the way and glitz up the rest of the lips too?

Have you used this? If you have, you most likely share my love for it. If not, here’s why I’m obsessed and refuse to try any other brand:
*ingredients are clean
*the formula isn’t glittery, sticky or weirdly colored (making it flattering for any skin tone)
*finish is perfectly glowy but not unnatural
*it stays, and in place, all day
*the container is small, but it lasts forever. For real. ✨
I like to apply it in all the usual places (tops of cheekbones, under eyebrows, bridge of nose, Cupid’s bow) after I set the rest of my makeup with my @14ecosmetics
Oh and if the $38 price point scares you, I promise it’s worth it. #notsponsoredjustobsessed

⭐️ Let’s talk about @iunik_official
, or I should say, an amazing discovery. I always wanted to try korean beauty products, and this did not disappoint me ! 💗 This is a super quick review, I was so pleased with everything that I don’t really see any bad point to mention.
⭐️Centella Calming Gel cream: this might be my favorite product I received ! I LOVE it and use it morning and night. It is perfect for my oily skin and gives me the perfect amount of moisture. The texture is light and super nice to apply ! 💖 Would definitely recommend it !
⭐️Tea tree relief serum: this is one of the best serums I have tried so far. I use it every night and I really feel and see an improvement on the glow of my skin and my imperfections. I don’t like heavy serums, and this penetrates quite easily into my skin. No real smell, no negative points for me !
⭐️Tea tree toner: I use this toner every morning since I received it. It doesn’t have a particular smell, feels extremely refreshing and pleasant. .
Overall, I definitely recommend the brand. It has a minimalistic approach to skincare ingredients and packaging, which could please a lot of you guys. I would definitely try some other products, like their serums 😍
