The foundation is packed with Marine botanicals which will help replenish thirsty and dull skin. Even though its hydrating and can be described as a tinted moisturizer, I still use a moisturizer before I apply it.  If you are new here, I love to be hydrated and dewy. For me this covered just enough to be absolutely perfect for everyday wear. My skin looks put together if that makes sense. Just enough coverage with a radiant complexion to give you a youthful glow!  Not too sheer and not medium coverage, the best way to describe it is  light coverage. Perfect to even out your skin tone. I set my T Zone in my face (forehead, nose area and chin) with powder to control my shine. Even though this is a dewy foundation I still like to combat some shine where I get oily.

SWATCHES: (Top to Bottom)

Bare Minerals sent two shades to try and per the descriptions on Ulta’s Website I felt the two shades would be best and honestly both work for me!

Wheat 4.5: medium skin tones with neutral undertones

Bamboo 5.5: light to medium skin tones with warm to neutral undertones

5 Minute Makeup: Must Have Products For A Quick Face!

When it comes to a quick makeup face we all want to be able to just slap it on and go. With two kids and working everyday I have found products that make my 5 minute makeup routine work. It does not require a lot of tools either which I prefer because sometimes I am doing my makeup on the train on my way to work (guilty! lol). Who else does this? Please tell me I am not the only one! Even if I don’t have all the tools I need as long as I have baby wipes lol or makeup wipes in my bag I am just find with using my hands and fingers.

Do I think you need these exact products? Not at all but these are the foundation products I have found that I need for the “I don’t have time and I need to look awake makeup and only have 5 minutes!” #momlife

Jouer Tinted Luminizing Tinted Moisturizer: Whatever BB Cream or CC cream works for you this is a must. Or maybe you need more full coverage so you have your favorite foundation that works best for you. I just prefer to be able to squeeze it on my hands, put  it on my face and keep going. The Jouer tinted moisturizer is one of my favs because its luminous enough to wake up my skin but does not leave me looking greasy. I am in shade Golden which also gives me a beautiful natural color. Sometimes foundations without adding tons of other face products you can looked washed out. I can just put this on and it looks nice. This one also comes in MATTE, see it here. 

MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Stick: I love this concealer for quick makeup days. Its very blendable and creamy, easy to apply because its a stick, has medium coverage and is a natural matte finish. I use shade NC 20

Makeup Revolution Baked Bronzer: This bronzer is a dupe for hourglass (See my DUPE LIST HERE) and is only $6!!! Its available in 3 shades at Ulta and gives a perfect amount of warmth to the skin without looking to dark. It also has a beautiful shimmer to it but not glittery at all. I also brush this on my eyelids to give my eyes a wash of color. I have been using bronzer as an eyeshadow for some time now and absolutely obsessed!

MAC Blush in WARM SOUL: Where has this blush been my whole life?!! I am not sure what took me so long but this blush pretty much has a cult following and now I know why. Its the perfect nude blush. Its described as a “mid tone beige with gold pearl”

L’Oreal Mascara: Honestly you can put any of the L’Oreal mascaras in front of me and I will use them. The newest one L’Oreal Paradise is on the top of the list but you can not go wrong with Original Voluminous, Carbon Black or Lash Paradise. If you don’t own any of these I strongly suggest them. I prefer them over any high end mascara!

MAC Great Brows & Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel: So lets just say my eyebrows are thin (insert being a teen in the 90’s here) and do not have great shape to them. If I don’t fill in my brows even the slightest when I have on makeup, I don’t feel put together.  I have tried a few different powders but MAC has won me over once again. I personally love the Dior Brow Style Pencil as well but in a hurry I just take the powder fill in a bit and lock it in with the Anastatsia Clear Brow Gel. I know this brow gel is expensive but it literally keeps everything in place and my powder and or pencil product in place which I need.

MAC Blankety & NYX Butter Gloss in Fortune Cookie: MAC Blankety is my all time must have nude lip color. Its the perfect shade for me (see MAC NUDE swatches Here) When I add a bit of NYX butter gloss in Fortune Cookie on top it gives a great shiny every day nude for me.
