I wear wear foundation just about every single day. Lately I’ve been taking a slightly different approach with my skin care. I use a facial brush by Sephora that has two side: one with a brush side and the other with pink tiny plastic bristles. This brush really exfoliates my face. My skin always looks clean after washing with the brush and rinsing. Because of this brush, I have no rush to go out and buy the infamous Clairsonic brush. I’m sure that it works wonderfully, but I’m having issues paying the money for it. The products I use to wash, tone and moisturize are the Aveda Botanical Kinetics line for Oily Skin. I love that all of the products have a pump…more sanitary!!! Since I’ve been using these products and the brush, my skin looks close to what it did before I started wearing makeup. And because of that, I came to the realization saying to myself “Why do I wear foundation every day?” So I made my way to the NARS boutique in the city and purchased their new Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. I was kinda excited when I first heard of it and was waiting for it’s release. So far I’ve only seen it in Sephora stores, however it’s not on their website yet.
This is what I purchased:
I went to the boutique with no makeup on my face except lipstick. I’m not a fan of my lips being bare, when I wear no makeup on my face. I wanted to get a color match for the TM. The MA matched me to the shade “Cuba” (medium 3). Nice match too. It leaves my skin looking glowy, but I know I have to apply a blot powder to my T-zone to control the oilies. It feels like my skin and my skin feels nice and soft. Here’s how it looks on my skin. (I didn’t use any powder, so excuse the oily look):
So, from now on I’ll be wearing tinted moisturizer just to give my skin a break from wearing a foundation. I go through these phases ever so often. I’ll do a look tomorrow using these products. Since the eyeliner is a gorgeous shade of blue, I’ll use a brown eye shadow to match with the color of the eye liner. Can’t wait! 🙂
