Jane   29 Aug , 2014  

Check out this swatch test - gone in 2 seconds! That's how easy it is to blend, and how natural it looks.

Like fashion, less is more for me when it comes to the beauty department. I want to feel like I don’t have any makeup on. So I don’t really put foundation all over my face, just on the areas that I think I need coverage. But if it’s light and delivers more than just coverage, […]
