OH MY! I was met with an overwhelming number of sweet messages and birthday wishes upon checking my blog today. What a lovely way to start my day!
Also, both of the makeup looks I posted last night received so much love (tutorials on their way soon!). Thanks for that too! I’ll be sure to post which one I went with for today!
Annoying amounts of love,
Anonymous asked: Hi! Is a tinted moisturizer a substitute for foundation? Which is most natural looking? Also, do you have any tips on how to find the perfect shade to match my skin? Thanks!
A tinted moisturizer is generally lighter than a foundation. As the name suggests, it’s really just a moisturizer with a bit of color to even out the face. It’s great if you don’t have too many problem areas, you’re just starting out with makeup, or just can’t be bothered to apply many products! ;)
Of course, the best way to find your correct match is to try it on. If that’s not an option, try to match the bottle to your chest, as your neck doesn’t see as much sun. Plus, it’s easier to match your face and neck to the rest of your body than it is to match your body to your face!
i-am-a-direwolf asked: Any eye makeup suggestions for a purple (the color is called purple storm) dress? I'm a bridesmaid for my aunt in April, the wedding is late afternoon. I was thinking of wearing gold jewelry. Thanks in advance!
Gold and purple is one of my favorite color combinations! Maybe a warm brown in the crease blended into a gold on the lid with a white gold on the inner year duct area and a dark brown or gold in the outer crease. Line the upper lashline with a shadow so it’s less harsh; dark plum, dark brown, or black!
Congratulations to your aunt!
