Make Me Up Monday: My Shade

It’s no surprise that I struggle to find the perfect shade of foundation, concealer, powder, etc for my skin.  My makeup fix is simply to even my skin tone and have a simple glow to my daily appearance for work and sometimes a late night of fun.  Finding the perfect color was so difficult in the beginning that I simply said not today and walked off.  Luckily, I never gave up.  Since Sephora has always been my go-to store for makeup fixes, I tried the color match tool AGAIN and was introduced to a shade of mineral powder by Bare Minerals.  For the first time, the color did not need blending with a different shade for my skin tone, it matched well enough to give me that desired look.  I have since gone back for the concealer and other products that Bare Minerals offer.

Not only is Bare Minerals a very compatible look for me, but it’s a very lightweight finish.  I am using their concealer, powder, liquid foundation, eye shadows, and blush with no plans to change this regimen anytime soon.

 Bare MineralsA friend, Estefania Buzenas, spent some time with me recently; applying the make-up that I am wearing in the face shot.  She did a very good job keeping my look natural with a pop, as she went with a smoky eye.  Red lipstick is my staple; therefore, I conned her into allowing me to wear red lipstick.  Enjoy!
