I love most things I try from Kosas. Recently I tried both their Concealer and Foundation. They do not disappoint. Kosas’s Revealer Concealer. For me I prefer to use it to lighten areas of my face as apposed to under eye concealer. It does work well under the eyes, but I prefer something a with a bit more coverage for that area. I love the applicator. It makes it really easy to apply directly to your face where you need it. It feels good on my skin and lasts. The Revealer Skin-Improving Foundation with Broad Spectrum SPF 25 is fantastic. It feels light on the skin and dries down fast. It lasts all day and night, and worked well with my other products. It gives a medium finish with a touch of glow. I think oily and dry skin would work well with it. 

I love PÜR Beauty’s Multitasking Essentials Best Sellers Kit. Each piece is great and includes the basics for a quick touch up, post beach, post gym, post work, whatever/whenever moment. It comes with a primer that I found to be lightweight and effective. There is a mascara that definitely gave length and definition to my lashes. There is a brush included for their star product- the 4 in 1 Pressed Mineral Makeup foundation that has Broad Spectrum Spf 15 coverage. I love the look this mineral powder gives. My skin looked flawless and Matte but not flat. There is a slight luminousity without any shine. I went a shade darker than my skin and it gave me a gorgeous, natural sun kissed look.

I have a new favorite foundation and it’s expensive. Tom Ford’s Traceless Soft Matte Foundation is lux! It is medium to full coverage and feels like nothing on the skin. It has a matte finish with light diffusing microspheres to blur any imperfections. The foundation is infused with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, E, and Caffeine to plump and care for your skin. It lasts all night and will work in humid environments. If you want to spend the money this is it!

of Laura Geller’s Dual Ended Concealer and Foundation Brush. I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked this brush. I was using what I thought was the best out there, but this did better with my heavy liquid foundations somehow. It is dual ended which makes it great for travel. The bigger, denser, side is the part of this brush that I love. It easily spread my foundation evenly and without the need of much pressure. I found the product did not stick too much to the brush, instead staying on my skin where I want it. The smaller angled side is for concealing. For me I did not find it worked well with my liquid concealer. However, I used it as a highlighter brush with fantastic results. Since it is angled and small and can get to those angles perfectly. I think both sides would be great for contouring as well.

with my new favorite makeup brushes only! I have recently found two new faves that make my foundation and concealer look flawless. The brush I am using for my concealer is Varenti Beauty’s Pro Liquid Foundation Brush. I use a very thick concealer for under my eyes. Unfortunately it has always creased on me throughout the day. This stopped when I started buffing it in with this brush. It uses high quality bristles that are vegan and cruelty free. The hairs are secured in a special way to avoid fiber loss and keep its shape. 

For my foundation I have been using Morphe’s M439 it is a full, domed brush, that has the density to apply foundation evenly and flawlessly. It leaves your skin looking airbrushed. So brush on the glam with the best in the game.

with some new faves. Lets start with skincare. I’m loving Algenist Skincare’s AA Barrier Serum. This antioxidant rich serum is designed to defent the skin barrier against pollutants and environmental aggressors. It uses Alguronic Acid, Niacinamide, Phloretin, and Ergothioneine. It improves skins appearance and uneveness. I love the texture of it. It feels luxurious and absorbs well.

My new makeup finds start with a cult favorite foundation. I now understand why Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation is so popular. This 24 hour wear, full coverage, Matte foundation really delivers. It leaves skin looking fresh and flawless yet somehow remains lightweight on the skin. It is heat resistant, and waterproof. There are over 55 shades to choose from.

Taking things to the ever important brows. For the last few years I’ve stuck with NYX’s micro brow pencil. I think it’s better than its expensive competitors. I’m now following it with their Control Freak Eyebrow Gel. It is a clear gel that tames brows and gives a fuller effect. It’s not sticky and stays comfortable all day. So play with some new finds for 2021, I won’t tell last year’s products you’re cheating 😉 

I usually like full coverage, matte, foundation. When I want to go a step less than full, with a little luminosity I use Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation. It is stated to give a right after facial glow, and I think that is the perfect description. It uses light diffusing minerals to brighten and minimize pores while resisting oiliness. It is very lightweight and breathable. It contains lots of good for you ingredients to improve your skins texture and health. So lighten up your foundation this summer with Koh Gen Do, and take something off….

and a result with Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Flawless Foundation. This is full coverage! Your skin will look flawless, poreless, and matte with this foundation. It is designed to also reduce the appearnace of wrinkles and feel cool on the skin. It includes the CT Defence that is designed to limit exposure of the skin to everyday pollutants. It is sweat proof, humidity proof, water proof and transfer resistant. Flawless also boosts skin’s moisture level. So when you want the most coverage, with the most cutting edge innovations in foundation get with Charlotte Tilbuy. Let them think you woke up like this ;)….

and so is my foundation. I am using Loreal Paris’s Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Lightweight Foundation. Gone are the days of spending big bucks to get a foundation that looks and feels luxurious. Drug store brands have stepped up in a major way. This one lasts with a Matte finish all day and night. It is breathable, waterproof, transfer resistant, and has spf protection. The coverage says medium to full. I find it so be a healthy looking full coverage. It has oil absorbers to resist sweat and water. It comes in 30 shades, so go get your Infallible coverage, and let it last all night….

and now I have it with Giorgio Armani Beauty’s Power Fabric foundation. This foundation gives full coverage, matte, lightweight,  longwear, and spf. It is a best seller, and I can see why. It uses a concentration of oils that have no greasy effects. Powerful pigments allow full coverage and a velvet matte finish. It comes in 31 shades designed to not crackle or dull. So get it all with Armani, and then ask for more…
