Beauty Profile

It's helpful to know what skin tone and preferences a blogger has so you can tell if a product that has worked for them will work for you too. Here are some general guidelines to understanding my preferences.

Skin Type/Make-up Considerations:
- I have combo-oily with clogged pores and prefer matte/semi-matte light-medium coverage foundations. In the winter my skin is more normal. In general, I prefer things that have good oil control.
- I don't typically go for heavy makeup looks and don't like anything that sits too heavily on the skin.
- I don't typically go for overly glittery blush or lipstick products. Neutral looks are preferred.

I haven't been properly matched but as far as I can tell I'm warmed toned somewhere in the range of MAC NC 20-25. I am generally a light-medium color with slight yellow undertones. These are the foundations I have tried with some notes on color matching.

Winter: (more NC20ish):
Holika Holika Petite BB cream in Moisture (a little more pale than I would like)
MAC Studio Careblend Light Plus
Skin79 Hot Pink BB cream (a little light but I can make it work)
Urban Decay Naked Foundation #4 (slightly too yellow)
Illamasqua Skin Base 6.5 (slightly ashy)
Sephora Spray-On Foundation Fawn (perfect match)
Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth Infusing Makeup - 1W2 Sand (perfect match)
Clarin's Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base - Champaign (perfect match)

Summer: (more NC25)
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum 53
L'oreal Revitalift Duo Powder Foundation 110 Ivory
Illamasqua Skin Base 8.5
