Good morning, lovelies!
It’s been eons since my last Favorite Things post, so there’s no time like the present to tell you about the new product I’m obsessed with.
My friend started using this powder foundation instead of a translucent powder for just a bit more coverage and she told me that it was her new favorite product.
So, obviously, I had to jump on the bandwagon.
The Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation, $48.00, is just what the title describes –weightless.
Because it’s so light, I don’t think it should really be called a foundation, because you would have to be using a heck of a lot of it to get full coverage.
However, it is great for sealing-in your undereye makeup, giving you a bit more coverage and blending everything together to get a flawless, matte finish.
To apply this, first I put a CC cream all over my face with my Beauty Blender. The best CC cream I’ve found so far is still the Mary Kay CC Cream, Light to Medium. Seriously, this is the cream to try if you want a nice even base that doesn’t look cakey.
Once you put a thin layer of CC cream on, start on your undereyes. I swear by Urban Decay’s 24/7 Concealer Pencil. To get good coverage, draw a upside-down triangle, with the point hitting just below the bottom of your orbital bone. Then blend in the concealer with a Beauty Blender or a cosmetic sponge.
After you finish blending in your concealer, keep your Beauty Blender or cosmetic sponge out and gently glide it over your Bobbi Brown powder foundation.
You’ll want to put a light layer all over your face, but concentrate the pressed powder over your concealer for a photo-finish look. You should *gently* run your foundation sponge on your undereyes and below your brow bones. Your skin around your eyes is very susceptible to pulling, making for early onset crow’s feet.
If you want a bit more oil control, try pressing some powder over your T-zone. Once you’re done with that, you’re ready to add contouring or even just some blush, but now you’ll have a flawless base for any makeup trends you want to try.
Putting a thin layer of Bobbi Brown’s Skin Weightless Powder Foundation not only provides more coverage, but helps set my makeup as well.
Gone are the days I’ll come home and look in the mirror, only to wonder if I had really looked that bad all day because my coverage was seriously lacking.
Go give this pressed powder a try at your local Sephora; you won’t be sorry you did.
Until next time,
