Armani Maestro Foundation 10

image

“Get a no makeup feel while achieving foundation coverage that locks into place. Inspired by the thinnest fabric in the world, super organza, Maestro Fusion makeup is a waterless suspension of volatile oils and pigments to allow ultimate comfort and weightless coverage. Featuring an ultra-thin texture and oil-pigment suspension that supports perfecting the complexion, this makeup hydrates the skin while adapting to the skin’s texture and tone.”

I’m not one to give into the hype of beauty products. I’m usually loyal to a brand or product that I love. But I’ve been on the hunt for a really good foundation that gives good coverage, looks natural and feels good on the skin. I got a sample of this at Nordstrom and I instantly fell in love. It goes on like a dream!
The foundation is so light and silky, I forget I’m wearing anything and the coverage is buildable from sheer to medium. It dries semi- matte and i don’t need to use powder for a nice natural, look.
I applied this with my fingers because i wanted it to melt into my skin. I find when using a brush for a lot of foundations either moves the product around too much, not giving an even coverage and I waste product because the brush or sponge sucks up some of the foundation.
I wore this for 6-7 hours without any fading or oxidizing. And within that time, my skin wasn’t oily and still looked fresh.
And i couldn’t believe the shade was perfect, 10; not too red or orange. A lot of these prestigious foundations can’t get the colors right for dark skinned beauties but it works for me.

I can’t say enough good stuffabout this foundation. It’s expensive, @ $62 but i only plan on using this when i go out, not everyday wear, so it should last a while.

Bottomline, go try this!

Look of the Day-We Can Do It!

I’ve been wearing my hair differently the past week. I hate doing hair, I just don’t have the patience, especially with my hair. It’s so thick I get frustrated halfway through styling it. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to wear my hair naturally that didn’t look weird to me and make me want to shave my hair out of frustration. I’m trying to embrace my natural hair but I’m so used to wearing my hair straight and anything other than straight just looks weird to me. I love it on others ladies though. I just can’t work it!  So I decided to play my hair up with a scarf and style it from there. This hair style kinda just came together. I’ve always admired and loved those “We Can Do It” posters. They’re so empowering! We’ve certainly come a long way ladies! So maybe I had that in the back of my mind but the style is very old school,1940’s-ish. I really like this style. With my makeup, I was going for neutral but honestly didn’t have this in mind. Then I looked at it when finished and I loved how it came out. It all came together full circle! Hope you like it! I love it!
