Best Foundations for a Glowing Complexion!

Hi readers!

Today I’ll be sharing  my top three foundations I like to use when my skin needs a little extra help in achieving a glowing complexion. 🙂


Lancome Teint Miracle 

You’ll get a nice, dewy look with this medium coverage foundation.  A little goes a long way and it does a good job of concealing any redness in your complexion.  Combination skin types may want to apply a bit of powder as it can tend to appear oily after a couple of hours.



Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua 

Definitely the sheerest and the lightest-weight one of the bunch, I love how it allows your skin to look like skin without flaws.  It melts right into skin and after a while, you’ll forget you have anything on.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Illuminating 

I love the fact that you can wear this alone or mix it in with your favorite foundation to get a customized radiant complexion.  Works really well on mature skin to give it a youthful glow.

Summer Must Have: Eyes and Face!


Hi everyone!

Almost down to the last post of my series and so far we have covered skincare, lipcolors, blushes, nails and hair.  Now, it’s time for the face and eyes. Take a peek at my picks in today’s quick read post!


Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 

Light-weight makeup is key for me in summer months and this is one fits the bill.  This foundation provides enough coverage to conceal redness yet still allows skin to like skin.  Another slightly less expensive option is Make Up For Ever Face & Body Liquid Makeup. 

bareMinerals Ready Translucent Touch-Up Veil SPF 15

This is great for setting your makeup and helping to control shine. Bonus: it has SPF.


Urban Decay Naked Palette

The original product that started it all, this palette has a great color selection and a variety of finishes that take you from workday neutrals to sultry bronze summer nights.  My favorite picks: Half-Baked and Smog.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Jet Back 

Just as the name implies, this liquid eyeliner will last all day without creasing or transferring.  Just a little primer underneath and you can create a thin or thick line thanks to the fine tip.

Rimmel London ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick in Witness White

An easy way to brighten your look, just pop this shade in the inner corners of your eyes and you’ll instantly look awake.  You can also use this as a base to accentuate other eyeshadow shades.

Do you use any of these? What are your favorites?
