5 Fabulous Foundation Finds.

After wearing less makeup over the summer, I am back to wearing more of a full face of makeup. Not only am I loving smoky eyes and dark lips this fall, I find that I like this more flawless look of foundation on my face again. I have been trying a lot of new foundation products and have discovered some great new beauties to share.

Flawless Foundation Finds

My five fabulous foundation finds:

Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Treatment Foundation - $52.00
Bobbi's new 2-in-1 foundation utilizes a unique light-reflecting technology that instantly gives skin natural luminosity without looking overly glowy. It infuses skincare into the formula so that not only skin looks more radiant, it is plumped and moisturized with a superior flawless texture. Skin looks real with color-true shades means all anyone sees is perfection.

Clinique Even Better Compact Makeup SPF 15 - $31.00
This lightweight cream foundation harnesses the technology of Clinique's Even Better technology to diminish the look of skin discolorations immediately while creating more radiant skin naturally over time. This long wearing, unique cream-to-powder foundation instantly creates a super smooth flawless finish that wears all day.

Cover FX CC Cream Time Release Tinted Treatment SPF 30 - $45
This buildable coverage CC Cream does it all. It treats, protects and corrects as it gives skin a flawless finish that lasts all day. Natural, anti-aging ingredients work as time-released treatments stimulate cell renewal continuously as you wear it. The finish is natural, beautiful and skin looks simply radiant.

Eve Pearl PEARLfx HD Crème Liquid Foundation - $42.00
This liquid foundation dries down to a completely matte finish that covers flaws and makes skin look totally even. It diminishes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. It dries down super quick and feels velvety smooth as skin looks completely natural yet completely covered.

Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation SPF 15 - $42.00
Created in Smashbox Studios, Smashbox has created the first foundation with 100% Liquid Light Technology that totally evens out and perfects the skin. That means skin looks like real skin but like your own skin with a natural, luminous finish. The HD formula was made with gel-covered pigments that act like photo filters to blur skin imperfections so skin looks more perfect when wearing.

Getting Healthy with Nutrisystem: Week 13.

I can't believe that I have been on the Nutrisystem plan for over 3 months now. It has really become a way of life for me. I know what I am supposed to eat and when I am supposed to eat it. I know how much exercise that I am supposed to fit in each day. It is routine. It is the point of the plan. The fact that it is working for me is amazing.

The point that I want to make in this post, which I am going to keep brief because it is straightforward, is that the plan works. You just have to follow it and stick to it for it to work.

There are no excuses when it comes to a plan like Nutrisystem. It has worked for thousands of people. The fact is that you have to follow it for it to work. You have to follow it each and every day. Put in the work. Eat the food. Drink the water. Do the exercise. The weight will come off.

I did my work this week and I saw more weight come off. This week I lost another 1 pound, bringing my total weight loss to 22 pounds. I am thrilled that I found a plan that I can stick to!

Top 10 Makeup Palettes.

I own more makeup palettes that any other makeup. Well, except for maybe lipgloss. Or lipstick. No, make that mascara. Or eyeliner. Well, you get the point. I have a lot of makeup. I buy a lot of makeup palettes because it's where I get a lot of bang for the buck.

I change my makeup palettes out seasonally and always wind up buying one or two more each season.

The Best Makeup Palettes for Your Money

Here are my top 10 favorite makeup palettes.

1. Stila In the Light Palette

I am on my second Stila In the Light Palette. Though I do have so many simialr shades, I really needed them again. I love the formula and the shades and use them for everyday looks.

2. Bobbi Brown Antigua Face Palette

This is one of my go to palettes for travel and it comes with me whenever I go to Florida. It has everything I need for day or night looks.

3. Urban Decay NAKED Basics

This basics palette is perfect in every way. I use it often, as it is a "basic" palette and have bought one for my daughter as well. I'm sure I will be replacing this one too.

4. Too Faced 
Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Palette

This is another one of those that I am sure I will be replacing. I use it for everyday makeup looks when I want  a little bit of a kick of shimmer.

5. Anastasia She Wears It Well Eye Shadow Palette

This is another more natural shade eye shadow palette, but with more rich shades, some shimmer and some matte. I really like the long wearing formula.

6. Bobbi Brown Tortoiseshell Eye Palette

I used this all summer long for the last three years and really wish I had a replacement because I am at the bottom of a few of these warm shimmering shades.

7. Urban Decay Smoked Eyeshadow Palette

For smokey eyes, this is my go to eyeshadow palette. These are so ultra blendable and perfectly pigmented.

8. NARS Hearts New York City Eye & Cheek Palette

I bought this on a whim earlier in the year when traveling and I am so happy that I did. It is one of those that travels well and has everything I need for an everyday look.

9. MAC Bare My Soul Eyeshadow Palette

This is another summer palette, but I used this for summer nights out.

10. Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour Palette

An oldie but goodie, I love these baked shadows. The super soft shadows are beautiful in color and formula. I really need her to make another one.
