It goes against everything we have ever been taught about makeup application. I came across a you tube video of a makeup artist from London. He did a tutorial on this and I couldn't wait to try it. No way did I think it would work but sure enough.. flawless skin that stayed all day! You ready for it? (sorry about the lighting, it was very orangey in the bathroom I was in)
Putting powder on your face BEFORE liquid foundation! Absurd right? Makes no sense! Guess what guys? It works!!! It hides any redness or pores and leaves a very matte finish. If you are oilier you will love this! You will not need to reapply powder throughout the day. I wore it the other day and I was told my skin looked airbrushed and perfect.
Here is how to do it:
Start off by using your moisturizer and then prime your face as normal. You know how I feel about primers so if you're not using one, go out and get it now. I use this one right now by Cover FX and Im really loving it.
After your powder apply your liquid foundation with your fingers. You will use a lot less foundation too.
So what do you think?? Will you try this? If you do, definitely let me know how it works for you!

So I think we've established that I happen to get cold pretty easily. This is why this oversized V-neck sweatshirt is the perfect beach accessory for me. I can wear it over a bathing suit (Its longer in the back so almost acts as a mini dress) I also wear it to the gym or to lounge around the house in. It's cozy & adorable! I have a few of these from Victoria's Secret. I happen to love the quality and the price isn't too bad either. They come in about 5 different colors and designs.
As for my hair, I love beach hair!! I love getting out of the water and just letting it air dry. Sometimes I like it off my face but want to keep it down so this is the perfect solution. Just make 2 small braids on each side of your face and pull them back. Either use a bobby pin or small elastic and you're ready to go!
On vacation I certainly lay off the makeup. You want your skin to breathe. But I ALWAYS wear a sunscreen and reapply often. Also, because I keep my face out of the sun. If my body gets dark and I don't want to look too pale, I will use Urban Decays Naked Flushed Palette that includes a bronzer, blush and highlighter. It is really convenient for travel and give a nice beautiful glow!
So what do you girls think of this look?
