Lately I have been trying to mix up my makeup routine to match the type of weather we have here in Southern Illinois but that often leaves me with an oily mess on my face. The weather here is unpredictable (no matter what the local weather man says, and yes, he has called me out on this type of comment on Facebook lol.) One minute it's sunny, then humid and then it's raining! It drives me nuts and trying to look decent through all of it is just impossible but I have been using some products that have made my life a little easier.
I'll admit I'm new to the BB Cream craze and I thought nothing was better than my beloved Make Up For Ever HD foundation (that costs me $42.00 at Sephora) but I felt the need to look for cheaper alternatives because like my mother use to say "I'm not made of money" and that "Money Tree" in the backyard has yet to sprout plus I noticed that my MUFE foundation is quite heavy on my face. I was unaware of this when I purchased the Garnier BB cream (12 bucks) and used it for the first time before going to work.
I didn't think I could get this much coverage with a foundation without it feeling the that level of heaviness. I absolutely love it, I'm hoping in the future that Mary Kay comes out with a BB cream. I also like the element of sunscreen protection that goes along with it.
Something else I'm also loving about this foundation is that they offer different foundations for people with oily or dry skin. The only downfall I see is that there needs to be much more color options for the different skin types. Other than that I'm completely happy with this product!
MK Finishing Spray
I had mentioned this product in my previous post but now that I have been wearing it for awhile I can give a thorough review on it.
I started out with spraying it in a X motion BEFORE I put on foundation and then spraying my face again, in the same motion after I put all my makeup on. It really worked and even my eye shadow stayed without creasing. I was really happy when I came home from a very hot day at work and my face didn't look like an oily mess. It's definitely worth the money.
