The Full Coverage Foundation You Can Barely Feel #Dior #makeup #foundation

Model @tdcansu wanted a quick beauty makeover for her shoot with @shopflynation and Dior was her first choice.  I selected Airflash since she wanted full coverage and I wouldn't be on set with her and needed it to last without requiring touch-ups.  

Airflash is a full coverage foundation that's light, weather resistant, smudge proof and light weight. It's simple to use.  

Spraying the product onto the brush and applying it directly to the skin. I matched her to shade 300 and set with a light dusting of Diorskin Nude Powder.  



Here's the full look:

I FELL IN LOVE WITH A SCRUB

If you're obsessive about your SKIN like I am, you might wanna pay attention. This Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask  has become my new found friend.  The instructions advises to use it 2x a week and I PROMISE you, I want to scrub away the dirt EVERY SINGLE NIGHT! Oh Em Gee! I love this stuff!!! I was a bit nervous about using it because I didn't want to have any pimples surface. Well, I guess I've been doing a great job with my skincare because I haven't had any yet.  Charcoal purifies the skin and the only way that happens is the bacteria has to surface.  So far, so good!


This is immediately after the scrub. Nothing else applied. And yes, I'm working on that dark spot near my ear with a serum. We'll talk about that later.

What I love about it: 
  • Great consistency. It's not too thick and dispenses from the tube with no mess
  • Smells amazing. (Papaya Fruit Extract)
  • Let me skin super soft and it wasn't dry after rinsing off the scrub
  • It contains Coconut extract, which is a great humectant and aids to holding moisture

Key Ingredients:
  • Activated Charcoal (Purifies the skin, absorbs the oil)
  • Sugar (Exfoliation)
  • Coconut Extract (Humectant)

Product Review: Fashion Fair Perfect Finish Cream Makeup

 I was super excited when my Fashion Fair package arrived! I hadn't been in tune with the brand since the launch of the Sam Fine Collection and could't wait to see what was next.  This will be a series of product reviews that will also feature the NEW collection: Eyes Wide Shut inspired by  Tia Dantzler.  You'll have to stay tuned for that!
 




Why I Love Perfect Finish Cream Makeup?

I'm in love with the texture.  It's one of those creams that kind of fits in the middle.  It's not too smooth that it won't stay in place, but it's still movable.  It doesn't take much and offers a medium to full coverage depending on application. Tender is my perfect match, literally! It's a warm with neutral undertones.

Get your perfect finish!

For a luminous finish formula, it wears very well.  The first few weeks I didn't prep my skin and was shocked by the results.  I didn't use any moisturizer or oily control products.  I wanted to see just how well it would wear and I was very surprised by the results.  I couldn't believe it!!! I got a ton of compliments on how smooth my skin looked.  Some days I used a little or and found that touching up by "tissue blotting" was the same.  I set the foundation with MAC Mineralized Skinfinsh in Deepest Dark and oh honey, I was in love!

Final Thoughts:

The Perfect Finish Cream Makeup has become one of my favorites.  I simply love the look of this foundation.  After wearing it with no skin prep products, I moved on to using a moisturizer and a oil control primer by NYX and the finish was the same.  I would advise not to use too much moisturizer if you're an oily or combination skin type.  I did notice that I had to blot a little more during the application but it wasn't excessive.  If you have any hyperpigmentation, I think the Perfect Finish would be a great product to use.  At first dab, you're back to an even tone. A little certainly goes a long way.
