BEAUTY POST| MAYBELLINE DREAM VELVET SOFT MATTE HYDRATING FOUNDATION REVIEW



Hey Beavs! We are now in the winter season and when I tell you my skin has been going through it, it ain't no joke. I have been taking extra steps to keep my face moisturized and reduce the amount of dry patches. One of those steps was finding a hydrating foundation. And I did. The Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft Matte Hydrating Foundation could not have come at a better time.

This foundation claims to give you a matte look without looking or feeling extremely drying on the skin. At first I thought this was just pure foolishness. How can a foundation be matte but not drying to the skin? Well, I am not sure what kind of magic Maybelline worked into this foundation but it does exactly what it claims! I always use a primer when I wear makeup but for the sake of trying this foundation for the first time, I did not wear any.It lasted all day and I had a little but of oils peeking through around my nose.  Nothing surprising to me as this usual happens for me. My face also felt really moisturized and not overly oily. With primer, I get even less oil peeking through and the foundation last just as long. It definitely goes on smoother with a primer so keep that in mind.




I picked up the shade 92 Caramel and it i a perfect match for me. As you can see in the swatch, the foundation looks exactly like my skin. The under tone is more of a beige, pink but blends perfectly into my skin (Refer to next picture). 



I hope you guys enjoyed this quick review on the Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft Matte Hydrating Foundation. If you would like to see a demonstration of how it looks on me then click on the video below!


VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT POST| BRUNCH/LUNCH DATE


Hey Beavs! Today's post is going to be my first Valentine's Day outfit for 2016. This is perfect for a brunch/lunch date with the girls, family, or your significant other. Since I will be doing a few more of these post, my description will be quick and simple.


Necklace: Cordelia Necklace from Foxy Originals
Dress: Open Back Fitted Floral Dress from Urban Planet
Shoes: Pink Patent Flats from Forever 21


Please excuse my tummy, I am still loosing my mommy weight. I fell in love with this dress the minute I saw it for a couple of reasons. One, it is extremely easy to style. I styled it for a more semi-formal/day time look. However, you can also pair this dress with some white or bright pink heels and throw on some white fur for night out on the town. If you will be walking around, flats are more practical. Want to be even more casual than this? Throw on a bulky jeans jacket and some white low cut Converses and you are set!
