Answering Your Questions… Beauty

Let’s just dive right into it!

By Jodi: What kind of foundation would you suggest for fair skin?
I’m considered fair skin or as some “experts” at beauty stores/counters say “Wow I don’t know if we have something pale enough!”. Here’s the foundations I really like (color and formula as I have dry skin).

  • Mac Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 – NC20
  • Nars Sheer Glow – Gobi
  • Laura Mercier Moisturizing Foundation – Warm Ivory

By Jodi: What kind of cleanser would you suggest for oily skin?
Depends on what your budget it so here are a few options, ranging from drugstore pricing to fancy expensive stuff.

  • Basis Cleaner Clean Face Wash – back before I had my kids I had oily skin and LOVED this face wash
  • Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser – I use this a lot and it works well for all skin types
  • Fresh Soy Face Cleanser – hardcore favorite, I go between this and the Philosophy cleanser
  • Ok it’s not a cleanser but the Clarisonic is the BEST investment you could make for your skin!

By Kristi: I have a request, actually. I’d like to see your entire makeup and nail polish collection in one photo, maybe splayed out on the kitchen table or something.

Yeah THAT wasn’t going to happen so I broke it up into bits. I just shot these quickly with my point and shoot so forgive the quality! As for all my nail polishes, I posted about that here, Nail Polish Organization, however we added two more long shelves up top and I have gotten a few more polishes since that post. I’m sure I forgot stuff too but here’s the majority of it!

You might be addicted to purchasing makeup if you can’t fit your entire collection in one photo… lol All kidding aside, I’m drooling over your collection! :)

AHAHA! If it helps, at least with the eyeliners and all the lipglosses, a LOT of those came in kits of 5-10 each over the holidays rather than buying them individually!

Doesn’t matter. Kidding. ;)

LOL. I also found a few more eyeliners, another eyelash curler, and a few more Mac products in the bathroom. I think the photo collage shows most of it though!

Wow! It’s like the make-up store is in your house :P I wish I lived in the same town as you because then I could come over and you’d show me what to do. I’m so clueless, but I’m thinking of starting some experimentation with makeup. (PS I love the comment thing, how it’s one colour).

YAY! I love seeing makeup. It’s all so preeeetty!

I am getting the NARS foundation tomorrow, so I’m excited! Thanks for the recommendation.

Do you have NARS Orgasm? Do you like that? I hear AMAZING things about it.

Yep! I have that in a small palette with a bronzer and highlighter!

Wow! I want a make-up collection like this!
