Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation – Cheat to Good Skin

In my previous post I talked about the GlamGlow Supermud mask – the best mask to deep clean your pores to give you clearer and brighter skin.
What if you are not quite there yet? I have an answer for you to cheat for a good skin day – it is my new favourite – Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation.

I got mine from Sephora online (check out what else I bought -> here). Yes, you can now also get Tarte’s products from QVC UK, but I found the shades available are very limited. 
All the shades have a handy description to their colours and undertones, which make it so easy to choose the right shades online. I picked the shade Fair-Light neutral (fair to light skin with yellow & pink undertone), which is perfect for my colour. I also bought the matching Airbuki brush for application.
On Sephora website, foundation and brush are sold separately, whereas in QVC UK, they are sold as a set. On the whole, it is cheaper to get from QVC UK (£34.00+P&P), but that is if you happened to suit their limited shades available. Otherwise you have to go for the more expensive route to order from (£39+Tax+Shipping).

The packaging of the pot is really nice in the sense that instead of a sift (which the loose powder will still fly everywhere), Tarte mineral foundation has a mesh net opening, which is very effective in keeping the power neat inside the pot.

I use the Airbuki brush to gently push down the mesh net to get some product onto the brush, dab onto my skin then start using circular motions to buff the foundation in. I repeat the same process until I am happy with the coverage. You can leave it quite light (like I did), or you can take more time to build up to a fuller coverage.


And After!
I just applied a quick thin layer, as you can see it has already even out my skin tone with limited imperfections showing through. The aim here is to look like my own skin that I don’t have any foundation on (which it DOES feel like I am wearing nothing! I mean foundation), just like I am having a “good skin day”. I like to use it as a weekend makeup, “too flawless” will look a bit fake.

If you like Bare Minerals foundation, you will love this even more, the quality of Tarte powder is a step up! Even if you are new to mineral foundation, this is a great start up too! Because it is so easy to apply, you can’t go over with it, it is a fool-proof mineral foundation.

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce

Makeup Lego : Jouer Little Black Dress Palette

I love Lego and I love Makeup - what if there is a Lego in the makeup world....?! Jouer Cosmetics has made this dream come true, especially with the two palettes that they have: Blushing Beauty Collection and the Little Black Dress palette. A few YouTubers like Essie Button , Fleur De Force , and Ameila have talked about the Blushing Beauty Collection on their videos, but I actually prefer the Little Black Dress palette instead.
