Product 411

For this Product 411 I am going to talk about a brand new product to Sephora and something I am absolutely LOVING. The new foundation from Tarte called Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation ($48).  Now, I'm not usually one for a full coverage foundation as I wear a tinted moisturizer most days - but this full coverage foundation is so smooth and light weight on the skin.  It gives such a flawless finish and is extremely long wearing. Great foundation for a vaca as it is waterproof! 

The best way to apply it is with a kabuki buffing brush.  Tarte came out with one to accompany the new foundation (Airbrush finish bamboo foundation brush) and it is gorgeous and stunningly soft... 

I would also suggest using the mineral makeup brush from Sephora Collection its a little smaller allowing for more precision... 

I love the shade selection in this collection. My philosophy when finding the perfect foundation colour for your skin tone may be different then some you have heard.  I don't believe in wearing yellow or pink foundations.  I think everyone should wear a foundation with a beige undertone and determine how cool or warm that beige should be. The shade selection for this 12-hour wear is great because for the most part they all have a beige undertone. In my opinion beige is the ideal undertone, what we want to avoid is looking too pink or too yellow - therefore if you tend to be more pink, using a beige will counter balance that and same goes for yellow undertones.
