New Fave: Warning, Girly Post

I have a bit of an obsession with makeup. Never leave home without it...on my face, that is. I used to be a loyal Clinique user. Then, thanks to my best girlfriends, I switched to MAC. I have been religiously using their products for about three years.

The past year or so, my skin has been uneven, splotchy and red. I'm sure it has to do with the fact that I don't drink enough water, but whatever. Pass the coffee. My MAC foundations weren't giving me good coverage and they were looking cakey and icky on my skin, even the liquids. So I knew I had to switch.

I was wandering around Ulta the other day, and I found myself in front of the Bare Minerals section. I typically shy away from anything with an infomercial, but I put a little on my hand, and it felt really nice. I liked their claim that the makeup actually improves your skin, and it's so natural that you can sleep with it on. So I decided to give it a shot.

WOW! This stuff was better than any foundation I've ever used! My skin looks and feels healthy and smooth. And even though it's a powder, it doesn't look like one once it's on your face. So I went back this weekend to try out some of their other products. Love them too!

This photo is terrible because it was taken under the fluorescent lights of my office (and I look a little spooky), but I wanted to show how normal my skin looks now. For once, I was able to NOT Photoshop my skin!

Funny you mention this, I was starting to consider that maybe my MAC makeup is giving me skin problems. In the past I never had problems with my skin... but the past 2 years.... Hmmm. I may follow your footsteps on this one because I have not been very happy with my skin lately. You by the way, look gorgeous!!!!! :)
