How does a beauty blender work? I recently bought one and I used a spray bottle to damp it but it didn't come out very well. Also it's really small and the lady at sephora told me it'll grow once damp???? Idek i need help lol

I run it under warm water till it gets super damp and I squeeze out as much excess water as I can before using so it’s not too wet. Once damp it will double in size! I like using the pointy end under my eyes for concealer! Just press/tap lightly to blend out any foundation, concealer, etc.

I have a review on how I clean my beauty blender & use it under the reviews link on the top of my page :)

I use hoola almost every day! Great matte bronzer :)

I also really like Hervana (satin medium pink) and coralista (shimmery warm pink) for blushes. All the other colors are great too just not really must haves for me like Dallas (pinky bronzer sort of like a blush and bronzer in one) & the highlighter bronzer duo.

I find Georgia peach & Dandelion to be really sheer but I’m pretty sure they are meant to be used as highlighters or face brighteners but they have very little color pay off so I don’t recommend them as blushes.

For literally months I was on the hunt for the Lorac Pro Palette at my nearest Ulta, each time I drove the miles out they were sold out. Yes, I could have ordered online but nothing brings me greater satisfaction than buying it in store and already having it in my hands … so I can go play with it. A few weeks ago I decided to go to Ulta for a small haul, lo and behold when I hovered to the Lorac display there was the Rocking Red Hot Pro Set

Super moisturising mask or night time face lotion recommendations? My skin can get a bit oily but it's very prone to dryness. And I exfoliate regularly.. I don't know what to do

Some super moisturizing moisturizers are

  • Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream for Sensitive Skin ($12)
  • Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream ($13)
  • Philisophy Hope In a Jar ($40)
  • Eucerin Calming Creme Daily Moisturizer ($8)
  • CeraVe Moisturizing Cream ($13)
  • Clinique Moisture Surge ($37)
  • First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream ($12)

As for masks try DIY masks with ingredients like oatmeal (soaked in water or milk not dry), egg whites, olive oil, honey, plain yogurt and avocado. You can mix up the ingredients like oatmeal and honey or plain yogurt and egg whites pretty much many any mask you’d like. All those ingredients are very soothing and moisturizing :)

What're your favorite foundations? Drugstore and Highend. I have combination skin with only getting oily in my t-zone and normal to dry skin everywhere else.

I have that skin type as well!

I like to use a good intense moisturizer at night and exfoliate weekly to handle my dry areas and I use oil controlling primers/moisturizers/foundations in the day time to handle my dry areas. This way my dry spots won’t be irritated when using more “drying” products during the day so my t zone will stay shine free. I also like to use translucent powders because they really help control shine but arent too matte so my normal/dry areas still look nice :)

Some foundations I looove are

  • Urban Decay Naked
  • Covergirl 3 in 1 Outlast 
  • NARS Sheer Matte
  • Garnier BB Cream for oily skin (not the normal to dry skin one)
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear
