beauty + my new fave foundation

Fairly certain every woman is constantly on the hunt for the perfect foundation. 

I myself am a crazy person and have tried five different kinds since August. 

Honestly no shame though, foundation is so tricky. You never know how the color is going to change throughout the day (thanks oxidation), and each person's skin reacts differently to each different formula. 

I did my research with this product. I watched YouTube videos, stalked Instagram posts, and read  the comments section on Sephora. I was deciding between this foundation and Born This Way by Too Faced, and after hounding a consultant at Sephora, I chose the Ultra HD Foundation. 

The question that the woman at Sephora asked me that really was the deciding factor was, "Are you in a lot of photos?" Considering I'm a 22 year old ex-sorority girl lifestyle blogger, yes.

I recently just took my family Christmas card picture, and I wore this foundation...absolutely unreal how untraceable this product is. It's a tiny bit darker than my skin tone, but blends very well so it's not very noticeable. But, there are like 40 different color choices so it's fairly easy to find one that matches your skin. When I was buying it, I was in a rush, carrying two bags that collectively weigh more than I do, and wearing heels that killed my feet, so I just wanted to get in and out of Sephora as quick as I could.

For daytime, I wear a thin layer to even out my skintone. If I'm going out, I layer it a little bit more. It's medium-coverage, but it doesn't feel heavy in the slightest. One pump of it is enough to have a light layer, which is perfect.

For the time being, this is my new favorite foundation. I change my mind every other week about what products I like and use consistently, so stay tuned if I decide to actually buy the Too Faced foundation as an extra option. 

Happy Thursday! It's been INSANE at work this week and honestly I just want to stay home and chill this weekend, but one of my best friends from college is visiting on Friday so I'm staying in the city this weekend. I get out of work in two weeks so I'll get to relax then!
