Sort of a Valentine's Day FOTD...


***Edit***: To the "MAC Artist" that said that putting to much powder will "defeat the purpose" of the Studio Sculpt Foundation, it's not to put A LOT of powder over the foundation it's to dab a bit of the powder to minimize the shine. There is also transparent (clear) powder that mineral companies make to avoid the "cakey" look of applying a powder over a liquid foundation. Everyone has a different way of doing things that works for them, and if you actually read my previous post, I have DRY skin, so if this foundation looks like that on someone with DRY skin, I can't imagine how it would look on someone with oily skin, hence in my previous post I said I would NOT re-purchase this because this particular product didn't "wow" me. I would rather stick with mineral foundation and avoid having to look shiny in the middle of the day. Also there's no animosity, I am just saying that there's several ways people can approach it. There's no way for me to contact you so I had to make a post, feel free to email me instead if you'd like.

Here's an impromptu Valentine's Day look I did last Friday (a.k.a. using-my-new-Studio-Sculpt-Products look), like I mentioned before I haven't been doing any FOTD's since I've been sporting tinted moisturizer and mascara the past week trying to give my skin a rest and bring it back to it's supple state, lol.

I used the new Studio Sculpt Foundation (NW25) and Concealer (NC30). As you can see, the foundation alone, makes me look a tad bit shiny, therefore I highly suggest using a setting or a finishing powder to mattify it. Also, the Studio Sculpt Foundation runs lighter than your normal shade, it looks ok in person, but the flash picks up the titanium dioxide which causes the "ghost effect" in pictures where your face appears lighter than your neck, so be sure to go a shade or two darker to solve that problem. My left eye is missing a bit of eyeliner at the bottom since I was rubbing my eyes like crazy because they were so itchy, ah well....I mainly did this look just to use my Studio Sculpt products anyway! I will post a pic of how the concealer held up soon, since the BF was hogging the laptop last night! LOL.

BTW, the Hello Kitty Collection is now available online at, Nordstrom's, and Macy's!

Beautiful FOTD! I also just recently bought Studio Sculpt foundation and found it does run a shade lighter. I still like it though!

Vanessa said...

TO A, there's no animosity at all, I was just stating my side where I was coming from. I am aware it's for that dewy look but as you can see it's not dewy but rather shiny...that's all I was saying.

Hey! I was wondering, how do you like NARS ALbatross? It looks beautiful on your skin here, but my skin is just about the same colour and I find it looks kinda chalky/ashy/too light when I swatch it on my hand in Sephora. Should I give it a test run?
