Hi beauties – Happy Tuesday 🙂
Today I want to talk more about having that kinda of NAKED Face -That No make up make up …..
Eyes and Lips to me can always wear more, but skin – in my view, should always look NAKED – not caked with product.
I have experimented with so many kinds and brands. Depending on the season, event or my skin’s needs at that time; i do use different products. I will do a full post on my whole collection soon.
One That I have been wearing since summer is Pure + Simple’s Flawless complexion in Biscotti – their lightest shade.
You can read more Here.
I Love when brands have tons of shade options. As I research more and more, I find that many brands have so FEW variants for darker skinned women. Hello! We are all different! I always Look at brands that have a FULLER range . Brand wise, It’s kind of silly to not have a diversity of colour and when I am shopping for makeup bases, that is one thing that turns me OFF right away. Ranting a bit here!
I recently took these swatches of this totally natural product, to see the full range.
It’s definitely buildable – let’s take a look.
I have a very cool toned skin – but flush and blush easily. Biscotti is just enough to neutralize my undertones.
Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide soothes and nourishes sensitive complexions while providing broad-spectrum physical protection against UVA + UVB rays.
Silk and Organic Sunflower oil moisturize and soften skin while providing a smoother application.
Hyaluronic Acid smoothes and plumps skin while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
I use it either with my fingers or a dampened beauty blender and it looks like this
It lets my skin breathe. This was taken in bright light and I love it when You can see NATURAL skin through the product. I am Not one for posting a million selfies, I like to have my photo taken a lot more – haha – So – This was right after first application.
