I don’t know about you, but when I go through the effort of putting on face makeup, I am looking for flawless, poreless results. I have fairly rough skin due to large pores and old acne scars and the most important thing I look for in a foundation is something that will help fill those pores. And I found a line at Ulta that will give me just that — it’s from LORAC’s POREfection face line. Just keep reading to see how I achieved this poreless face routine.
I know this is way outside the box of what I typically do when I play with makeup, but a bunch of beauty blogger friends had the idea to do a monthly challenge together and I thought it was too fun not to participate. For this month, the challenge was ‘mermaids’ and this is what I came up with….
I’ve always been the type of girl who personally loves taking the time to put on a full face of makeup. I honestly enjoy blending out a pretty eye look, winging out my eyeliner, and contouring my cheekbones. But, as we all know, there are those days — or phases of our life — where we don’t have time to do it all.
I was in just that phase a few months ago during the beginning of my pregnancy. My morning sickness stuck around for a good 3 months, and because I felt so sick most days, I just didn’t have the energy to put on a full face of makeup whenever I went out. So I had to rethink the way I did my makeup, and it didn’t take me long to find out what worked for me. It was something quick and easy, but left me looking really put together (even if I didn’t feel it!) I thought it would be fun to share with you all my quick makeup routine — these were the bare necessities for me whenever I went out with my hubs during my morning sickness.
If you’re like me — a girl who can’t not do some form of a winged liner (or cat eye…whatever you call it) on a daily basis — than you know there are days where you just want to throw your brush or gel pot across the room because you’re fed up with trying to get an even wing.
I’m not the only one, right??
I originally had thought to post my review of this palette and then wait a few weeks to share a tutorial with the palette…but after playing around with this palette, I thought it would be best to combine the two.
I know I’m going to be giving away my review…but I honestly wasn’t very impressed with this palette. But before I spill all the beans, let’s jump into the tutorial!
