Makeup Q&A

What are the benefits of buying a 2-way foundation (or dual powder foundation) and what type of skin is best suited rather than a foundation and powder separately?

Our dual powder foundations are best suited for people with normal to oily skin because it is a powder formula vs. a liquid designed to absorb excess oil.  The benefits are that you get two products in one; a foundation to provide an even skin tone and base and a powder to control shine.   I would especially recommend for the woman on the go as it is in solid form vs. other mineral based powders that are loose and can’t get messy.

Powder Foundation tools:  When to use a brush, sponge, and fingers and why to achieve flawless skin.

Our dual powder foundations come with a sponge to achieve two looks; use wet for maximum coverage or dry for a soft velvety finish.  Our Powder Brush is also recommended for use throughout the day to prevent powder from appearing too cakey.  Make sure to wash the sponge at least once a wekk to prevent any type of skin breakouts.  I suggest using a cleanser to wash.  I wouldn’t recommend using your finger with a powder foundation, as it would not apply correctly.  I would only use fingers with a cream/liquid formula.

Juiced

I am obsessed with juicing! It is a delicious and healthful way to get all of the vitamins and minerals we need.  I prefer to pick up my fruits and veggies at the local farmers market however if that is not an option for you (or convenient) I suggest buying organic.   Here’s one of my recipes:

 

 

 

  • 1 ½- 2 cups very cold, filtered water
  • 6 cups spinach, chopped
  • 3 cups organic kale, chopped
  • 2 stalks of organic celery
  • 1 organic apple, cored and chopped
  • 1 organic pear, cored and chopped
  • 1–2 Tbs. fresh organic lemon juice
  • A few cloves of garlic 

Best of Health,

Gabriel

Cool vs. Warm Skin Tones

I think most people should know if they have warm or cool undertones. Knowing this is important in choosing cosmetics, clothing and hair color. The quickest way for someone to determine this is to ask themselves the following question;

What color looks best on me, pink or peach?

Pink: Cool undertones
Peach: Warm undertones

Done!
