Hey ladies I am back again with a new weekend look. I am such a fan of the color yellow, especially mustard. I swear it looks so good on brown girls. I've had this skirt for a few months and I couldn't wait to pull it out and wear it again for the fall. I paired this gorgeous skirt with this layered sweatshirt shirt, booties, and gold accessories. This is the perfect look for the season and defines Fall.

Make Up For Ever HD Liquid Foundation Review

Sunday, October 18, 2015

Hey ladies! I was contacted by Make Up For Ever to do a review. First off I am not a makeup artist or an expert. I am still an amateur and a newbie when it comes to applying my own makeup. I am constantly on YouTube trying to learn simple makeup tricks, like how to apply eye liner and of course how to do my eyebrows lol. So when I was contacted by  Make Up For Ever , I was super exited but a little surprised that they wanted to collab because I don't think I am all that good at doing my own makeup. However, I thought as a newbie who is constantly hunting for the right foundation for my skin type, I thought it was a great idea to participate in this review.

As you all can see, I am a fan of wearing simple and natural looking makeup. Make Up For Ever states that their HD Liquid Foundation appears more invisible, more comfortable, and more natural-looking than ever before. In addition, as an avid YouTube user I have heard wonderful reviews about Make Up For Ever HD Liquid Foundation, so when I was asked to review it, I was excited. The shade I selected for the liquid HD  foundation was 175= R510 Coffee. I was then asked to select a foundation stick  so I chose 177= Y505 Cognac. Lastly, I was also asked to select a primer, I selected the Smoothing, Mattifying, Hydrating. When I received my products, I was also gifted lip gloss, an artisan brush, and a powder. How sweet was that?

First thing I tried was the Smoothing, Mattifying, Hydrating primer. This primer is the best primer I have ever used, It is so matte and makes applying both the foundation stick and the liquid foundation easy. I also loved the the Make Up For Ever HD Liquid Foundation, it is light weight but gives me just enough coverage.

When I applied the  Ultra HD Liquid Foundation, I started applying in the center of my face while stretching outward using a artisan brush .What I love about this Ultra HD Liquid Foundation is that it created a VERY naturally flawless complexion—on and off camera. Seriously, my face never looked this flawless in photos. In addition, Makeup For Ever Ultra HD Liquid Foundation is now available in an expanded range of 40 shades to match all skintones, Ultra HD is the perfect everyday foundation for a flawless complexion – and an unretouched life.The Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation that I was also gifted is now available in 15 shades,. This versatile stick foundation  can be used as foundation or for contouring. When I applied the stick I swiped it on the forehead, center of my nose, chin, and top of cheekbones. Then I diffused in a circular motion.However, in my opinion I didn't see the use for it, especially after I applied the Ultra HD Liquid Foundation which is all I needed.

Overall I really loved these products. My makeup looks natural and matte.

 Thank you again Make Up For Ever for gifting me these products!
