If Tiara taught us anything, it’s that, if you got sparkle, you gotsta let it shine.
So dump that winter matte finish foundation and put your gleam on.
I’ve been looking for the best possible glowing skin recipe.
Tried all the new buzzing products for glow and found my favorites.
But before we get to all of that…
I wanted to talk about the Urban Decay BB Cream that I was excited to try a month or so ago.
I didn’t love it.
Actually took it back.
It’s not that it’s a bad product, it’s just that, I’m not a product junkie.
I don’t like to have a bunch of products that all do basically the same thing, they cost me too much money and the redundant ones never get used. Everything in my makeup case gets used or it goes back.
Anyway, it was good as a primer, but I have primer. It was no good for coverage. I didn’t notice it making my skin look different or better really…at least nothing noticeable
I wanted something that had more multitasking abilities so when I took it back (and if you have makeup you don’t like you should always take it back, complete waste not to) I tried to find something that fit the needs the UD BB didn’t. Boy, did I.
Stila’s Illuminating BB Cream is different than any I’ve tried. It’s gorgeous, lightweight, has just enough coverage to even me while still sheer enough to show my skin, SPF, claims to be good for you skin…the works. I’m into it.
That is why it’s the lead role in my newest tutorial, but the supporting class ain’t bad either.
What I used:
1. Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder- Golden Light
2.NYX Concealer Wand in Yellow
3. Benefit Watt’s Up Illuminator
4.Stila Stay All Day 10-In-One HD Illuminating Beauty Balm
5.Urban Decay Cheek Tint inQuickie
Oily skin setting powder: Hard Candy Illuminating Powder – Walmart
Similar products for a budget:
1. Rimmel Natural Bronzer Sun Bronze
2. NYX Concealer Wand in Yellow
3. Hard Candy Glow All the Way Luminizer Doll Face
4.VIP Gold Super Plus Beblesh Balm (BB Cream)
5.Maybelline Bouncy Blush in Fresh Pink
PS I noticed this bouncy blush is getting baaaad reviews on Amazon.com, what’s up with that? am I totally off on this one? I always apply it with a brush so maybe that’s it? I think it has a fresh finish and a color that is very hard to find at the drugstore but I really want to know if I am off base on something….thoughts?
