When it comes to foundation I gotta admit I tend to skip this process many times! I kinda just go for the intense concealer contour technique, rather than applying foundation first. I have tried many different foundations from High end to drug store and to be honest, the high end foundations are never my favorite. One of the reasons why I don't really wear foundation is simply because it's almost impossible to find a perfect match. I am a medium with yellow undertone. I know many brands claim to have a color like this because it is actually quiet common, but to this day I can say that I still did not find my perfect match.
So as I wander around my local beauty supply store I came across this foundation. I tend to buy products so that I can simply try new things. When I saw the LA Girl USA foundation I decided to grab it and test it out. When I first tried it on, the first thing I notice is how very drying this product was.
I have dry skin so for me it's very important that my foundation is not drying. Even wearing my very hydrating moisturizer, this foundation still was not doing it's justice. I ended up mixing it with moisturizer and the formula became more wearable. Now if that was the only problem, this would probably be my go to foundation.
Im not sure about their ingredients but they do claim to be cruelty free. The problem I had was that this foundation felt very irritating. My skin started itching which has never happened to me before with any other product. I just guessed that I'm probably allergic to one of the ingredients.
When its come to complexion the shade I picked which was the color "Honey" was the perfect match. Yes I have finally found the perfect match!!! but it is such a shame I won't be able to wear this foundation because of how irritating it feels. The color really is the perfect color I have been looking for years now. Since I can't wear this foundation, I will use it to go for a color hunt.
The Formula goes on very sheer, so you do have to apply a generous amount to get perfect coverage. It does give you a perfect and even skin tone. I don't think my skin has ever looked so perfect and even with the rest of my body.
Overall I do recommend this foundation if you have oily skin. For me this wasn't a win, especially because of the allergic reaction I had. When it comes down to it, this foundation is good. It does what it claims which is "Perfecting" It really gave me a perfect skin tone and my face looked naturally flawless. Plus this foundation is only four dollar!! can't really ask for a better price.

So I have never been a fan of jewelry, But I think I may have changed my mind about it. The reasons why I never used buy or wear jewelry really vary depending on my mood or season. I'm not the type to just garnish my body with accents on a daily basis. The very few times that I actually wear accessories is on a special occasion.
As many of you probably know jewelry can be very expensive, especially if you like high end quality pieces that wont rust or change color. I used to always buy the cheap stuff you can get at Forever 21 or HM ext. The problem with these places is that their jewelry is so poorly made and usually tend to break. I have bought some pieces that to be honest didn't even last me a month. Basically in order to have good jewelry you're most likely gonna have to spend more than a few extra bucks. By that I mean hundreds. Most designer jewelry are usually above fifty dollars and let's face it not all of us can afford to spend so much money on something we will probably only wear once or twice.
I wouldn't call myself cheap but more reasonable. I don't think it's worthy to pay so much money on something that wont earn me anything back. So here's where Companies like RocksBox come in.
RocksBox is a Jewelry Company that does Monthly subscriptions for 19$ a month. Now we all know these kind businesses are very popular nowadays but here's why RocksBox is very convenient and worthy.
For all those of you who wish to wear delicate Designer pieces and don't want to spend a lot of money buying expensive jewelry, RocksBox is perfect for you. here's what I love, you're basically renting all these gorgeous Pieces for as long as you want by simple paying the monthly fee. when you subscribe, you can request all the pieces you want by simply adding them to your wish list.

Here's a Picture of my set
The best part of this is that, if you fall in love with a piece you can just keep it and sent the rest back.

Sometimes it is necessary to come out of our shell, and remind ourselves what we are capable of creating. I usually do more natural glamorous makeup looks, but I also love to just simply create what I can visualize in my head. whenever I feel like I'm getting too comfortable with my skills, I like to test my self and do something I've never created before. The so called "Comfort Zone" to me is more like a Danger Zone. I believe that the moment we become too comfortable with our abilities, we begin to lack the spark or creativity. It's good to always push yourself and know that you can always improve and do better than you did before.
