This post is in collaboration with Refinery29 and Almay. All opinions remain my own.
Lately I've been feeling a little more minimal with my makeup. I mean, it's summer time. I know I'm not the only one who feels a bit more colorful and glowing thanks to that good ole' natural vitamin c! I've been leaning more towards naturally enhancing makeup looks and fresh glowing finishes.
I had the opportunity to try out almay's "smart shade" skintone matching makeup which is a revolutionary self adjusting foundation with a new technology almay has designed called "tonemimic™". This formula works with your natural skin tone to create a perfect match for every use.
I'm generally a bit worried to depend on self adjusting makeup. however, it seemed to match up great! I like to apply it with my fingers to make sure all of the self adjusting beads melt into my skin perfectly. It's also a bit quicker for me to get out the door because I'm not reaching for my brush!
The look I've been wearing with this foundation is what I like to call a "your skin but better" makeup look. Everything just naturally enhances the skin.
I started out with my Almay smart shade foundation in the shade "300 medium". Since the smart shade blushes have a multi-color finish, I was able to skip bronzer and just add a warm peachy glow to my cheeks. I looooove the Almay intense i-color trios. They literally have the quality of high end shadows and come in beautiful shades!
I'm a sucker for greens and moss shadows so I had to go with the "trio for greens"! To finish off the eyes I went with a brown shade in the "one coat thickening" formula. Lastly, to give my lips a natural flush of color and moisture, I used the Liquid lip balm in "rosey lipped".
Would this be a look you guys would rock every day? :) Thanks for reading!
