It’s Magic: 1 foundation color for the whole year

I have a love-hate relationship with makeup. As much as I love perusing through Sephora, what I don’t love is my credit card bill that month. Eek. Another thing that I don’t love is changing my foundation color every season. Who has time for that? Well, that problem has been solved, just keep reading…

So in the winter my skin pretty much stays one color: pale, pale and did I say pale? With that said, I don’t worry about my foundation color not matching my skin as the season progresses. However, what about when spring rolls around and then summer? Before you know it you’re progressively getting tanner by the day. While this is awesome (because who doesn’t love a good tan), I’m caught in between foundation colors constantly. But then I discovered this tinted moisturizer from Josie Maran at Sephora…

I should preface this with, it’s not a foundation per say. I am someone who likes more of a dewey and lighter coverage on my skin so this moisturizer worked perfectly for me. It’s actually just marketed as a daily moisturizer with a “tinted warm glow.” Okay, anyway, on to the important stuff. So this tinted moisturizer actually adjusts to YOUR skin tone so you can wear it year round. Also, it has SPF 47 so it’s great to wear for not only every day coverage but also when you are spending the day outside. I don’t know about you guys, but when I’m at the pool or beach, I’m not going to be wearing makeup BUT it’s nice to have something that evens out my complexion and still gives me great skin protection. Last but not least, it smells really good too! It doesn’t have that overpowering sunscreen scent at all.

Below are some photos of how the product looks on my skin (I also have on bronzer, blush, and a highlighter fyi). I took the photos by the window where there was natural light so you can see how well it blends in with my current skin color.  Sorry if there is a photo overload, but I wanted to get a bunch with natural light so you can see how well it actually blends in. And obviously, these photos are #nofilter 😉

Hope this is helpful, especially with summer coming up! xx

    Younique has a new mineral cream and powder foundation called Touch that I am just in love with! It makes your skin feel like silk!

    What is your skin care routine? And what type of bronzer/highlighter do you use?

      I actually just use a bar of soap to wash my face (I know that is probably horrible! lol) But I use MAC for both my bronzer and highlighter. The bronzer is called ‘Refined Golden’ (bronzing powder) and the highlighter is called ‘Lightscapade’ (mineralize skinfinish)
