You guys, I discovered the BEST basis, and, GASP! — it’s full-coverage.
I KNOW! Who am I…? What occurred to Karen??
I nearly by no means put on full-coverage as a result of full-coverage often means full-effort. You’ve gotta mix and stipple and buff and mix and mix in order that your pores and skin doesn’t go all cake-face. But with this liquid basis by Wander Beauty, I actually do a 60-second slapdash job with my fingers, and my pores and skin appears to be like even-toned and pure.
Wander Beauty is an up-and-coming make-up line you could find at Sephora (and in addition on the Wander Beauty website). Their entire shtick is make-up for the busy makeup-lovin’ lady-on-the-go, or actually anybody who likes put-together make-up however doesn’t have on a regular basis on the planet for sophisticated appears to be like. (Remember Bobbi Brown earlier than Bobbi left? It’s kinda like that, however with extra of an emphasis on the entire travel angle.)
And that fairly precisely describes the payoff for Nude Illusion Liquid Foundation. Effortless, easy, elegant. You can put it on in a shifting automotive whilst you’re half-asleep. A one-ounce tube is $40, and it is available in 12 completely different shades for all pores and skin varieties.
I put it on this morning, then took footage of it all through the day. First factor this morning, I swiped and dotted the muse throughout my face with the massive doe-foot (it’s much like the applicator that comes with my beloved Neutrogena Hydro Boost). Then, I blended it in with my fingers and — shock! — that was that. Didn’t even must buff it down with a Real Techniques buffing brush or something. I simply left it as is! No powder, no nothing. It appears to be like pure and lasts all day lengthy.
Come to consider it, that is very very like NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint, however with extra protection. Bottom line: It’s matte with a low-key pearl and appears very skin-like and simply plain attractive. Plus, bonus — it additionally blurs pores ever-so-slightly.
Your selfies are gonna thanks as a result of Nude Illusion appears to be like so good in pics, too, particularly in real-life lighting conditions — indoor mild, outside mild, full-sun. It’s all good!
Do that feeling?
The one after you’ve been sick for some time whenever you lastly cease hating meals?
Well…it’s not like I despise meals after I’m sick, as a result of yeah, I’ll nonetheless get down with a can of Annie’s rooster soup, however it’s not like I take pleasure in it or something. Because when my nostril is stuffed laborious as a rock, I can’t style something.
Anyway, at the moment was the primary day I felt good hungry in additional than per week, so Connor Claire and I headed to Creekside Bakery, our favourite lunch spot in Novato.
I had a cup of black-eyed pea soup with collard greens and bacon that was to. Die. For. It was filling and — dare I say — fairly fibrous, ha ha! Connor and I additionally break up a savory scone (with cheddar cheese, leeks and MOAR bacon). We additionally obtained a sprinkle cookie, however Connor refused to share it with me… I can’t blame her, LOL!
Side word: Is anybody else further choosy about their scones? I don’t like once they’re tremendous dry and laborious and damage the roof of my mouth, however the ones at Creekside are juuust proper.
By the best way, the white toy horse in these pics is known as “Applesauce,” in case you had been questioning, and in response to Coywolf, he’s really a unicorn, however he has a really brief horn.
There’s a bridge by the bakery that crosses a creek, so we took a fast stroll and appeared for squirrels afterward.
Didn’t see any at the moment, however we noticed loads of leaves, although!
