or dry? Well, now you don’t have to choose. Studio Gear’s Dual Identity wet/dry Mineral Foundation is all things, for all types. It is a loose mineral foundation that can be applied dry or added to primer, spf, serum, etc., to become a liquid foundation. You can also use it as a finishing powder and touch up duster. It is lightweight, and gives light to medium coverage. I am obsessed with their #3 Domed Foundation brush. It is perfect for mineral cosmetics and great when contouring. Now with Studio Gear you can change your foundation routine as much as your attitude…..

it’s good enough for me. Kate Moss is the spokesmodel for Decorte Cosmetics. I love everything from this line, -but Kate and I are most obsessed with their foundations. The Soft Powder Foundation has hydrating and conditioning benefits. “Uber-antioxidant Shirakaba Tonic infuses skin with calm and renewal. Washi Paper Optics™ create a low-definition look for a luxe new luminosity.” The coverage is perfect. The Soft Creme Foundation is a liquid with the same great benefits. Both are long wearing yet breathable. So get with Decorte and be like Kate….. no Johnny Depp included

or dry, with TORI Cosmetics dual blend powder foundation. You can use a damp blender sponge for a natural, illuminating finish. Or apply dry, with a powder brush for matte full coverage. I personally love it dry. It has a velvet finish and works great with my oily skin. You can also use it as a powder to set your liquid foundation. Tori also makes a great silicon based primer. So get flawless, wet and dry….

in a new way. I have always been loyal to powder blush. I have oily skin, and hate how liquid or stick blushes feel on my skin…..until now. I have a new obsession. It is Susan Thompson’s Liquid Blush in MMS The Word. It is super lightweight, and very blendable. It has light reflecting pigments, and major color- a little goes a LONG way. I also love their Dual Powder. It is a powder foundation that gives full coverage with out looking cakey. You can use it dry with a brush or wet a sponge and make it more of a liquid. These products have no Parabens and are hypo allergenic. So get dolled up with Susan Thompson cosmetics, and leave them blushing…

and your products. I love skincare that is infused with oxygen. I’m currently using Oxygenetix Oxygenation Moisturizer. The line was created for post procedure purposes, but I find it a great addition to my arsenal. It attracts oxygen while delivering PCA,HCL, and multi tocopherols.  It provides instant hydration while reducing the signs of aging. It helps plump the skin leaving the perfect palette for Oxygenating Foundation.

Oxygenating Foundation gives complete and natural coverage. It acts as a virtual second-skin, allowing it to breath- with no occlusive oils to interfere with the bodies natural healing process. It’s water resistant and contains spf 25. Both the foundation and moisturizer are cruelty free and vegan.

On my body I have been using Karin Herzog’s Silhouette. It contains 4% active oxygen to penetrate deep into the skin. It is designed to “disperse irregular fatty deposits and accumulated toxins, increases circulation and improves the skin’s natural repair and regenerating functions. When applied to targeted areas (e.g. hips, thighs, buttocks or stomach), the resulting energy rush helps to break down fatty deposits by stimulating the lymphatic system to efficiently remove them.”
So put some oxygen into your skincare regimen, and breathe deep

but your foundation can be with Geri G. First apply the Transceutical Canvas. This aloe vera based cream conditions skin, hydrates, and creates a smooth canvas for makeup. It bonds with cosmetics to make them blend into the skin, for an immediate natural glowing finish. Next apply the Innocent foundation with the Canvas brush. It is best to gently buff the foundation on vs painting. It is water based and combines squalen oil, green tea, and white tea. It is weightless and very natural looking. It leaves you with a glowy look vs matte. So get flawless with Geri G, and fake that innocence…

blendsmart brush

with your foundation brush. Try the BlendSMART brush from Doll 10 Beauty. This brush rotates 360 degrees at 190 revolutions per minute. It is said to allow you to use half the normal amount of foundation that you normally use. It works with both liquids and powders. I like it most for blending my foundation once I put it on with my usual brushes, or if I went too heavy on the blush.  Here is a tutorial on how to use it. So power it on, and get rotating…..

trystal minerals

and my new obsession, Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals! This is a self-tanning mineral bronzer. It sold out in the first two weeks on their website and is flying off the shelves at Sephora.  I will definitely be  wearing this all summer and beyond. It gives me the most amazing surfer girl/just got back from Mexico bronze. Using the Trystal3 technology it interacts with your moisturizer or liquid foundation to tan the skin gradually over time. It comes with a great Kabuki brush and instructions on how to make a major contoured look. It is oil free and lightweight. I wear it over BB Cream for a flawless look. So bronze up and strip down….

gerardso get some in your skincare. I have been using BB Plus Illumination Creme from Gerard Cosmetics. It can be used as a moisturizer, a primer, mixed with foundation, or as a highlighter. It has a golden hue to give a youthful glow, and hide imperfections. So be vibrant with this BB and spice it up…..
