My Foundation Collection

January is all about makeup, all the makeup that I currently own!! I am starting with my foundations that I own. I always thought it was so hard to match my complexion because I have a yellow undertone. When I was on the search for foundation, I ran into ones that made me look too yellow, too dark, my skin looked ashy but I finally found a few that I just love so much!!

Liquid Foundation- MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC50

This is actually the only liquid foundation I own surprisingly! I really want to branch out and try drugstore and other high end ones but MAC matches my complexion perfectly! I love the coverage it gives and how flawless my skin looks! 

Powder Foundations- MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark and Makeup Forever Pro Finish in Neutral Caramel

Now the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish is actually for setting your makeup(Well I've seen a lot of MUA on YouTube use it for that purpose) but I use it as a powder foundation. It gives a light coverage and just looks amazing on my skin. I will actually try to set my makeup with this sometime but I love it as a foundation. 

I was in Sephora looking around and I was always curious about Makeup Forever. I didn't think that I was a match for any of the foundations but boy was I wrong. I love this powder, it gives me full coverage and to me it has a bit of a matte finish. My T-Zone doesn't get oily at all and I think I want to try out the liquid foundation next by Makeup Forever.

BB Cream- Maybelline Dream Fresh in Deep

Funny thing about this BB Cream is that I first tried it the shade below this one and it was too light. I honestly thought this one was going to be too dark but it was perfect! This is my everyday foundation! I love that it hide my imperfections and gives my face a nice glowing, healthy look! I'm so glad I finally found a BB Cream that matches my skin and looks amazing! 

Tinted Moisturizer- Stila Sheer Color in Deep

Now before I found my BB Cream, I was hearing all about tinted moisturizers during the summer. I looked around for a while and came across this one by Stila at Sephora. I instantly fell in love and used this all summer. It looked really great when I paired it with bronzer for that summertime glow effect. I also love that it has SPF in it so it was perfect for the summer. 

What are your favorite foundations? What are your recommendations for liquid foundations for me to try? Let me know! 


  1. I wish I could wear MAC liquid foundations. They break me out. Love some Mineralized Skin finish! I don't wear a full face of makeup without it. Great product. I wanna try that BB cream. I've seen quite few bloggers mention this quite a bit. Thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Yes, you should check out that BB Cream, it's wonderful and light weight but gives a good coverage.

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
