Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Let’s talk about cult favorite Too Faced Born This Way Foundation because it receives non-stop hype all over the internet. This foundation is a medium coverage very natural looking foundation, not too matte and not too dewy. I’ve been using this foundation for the past year or so now and I will NEVER go back. It’s often rare that I try an overly hyped product and actually like it. This foundation is amazing and I love the way it makes my skin look.

My skin type is more normal/combination and this foundation does a great job not looking greasy in my T-zone and not clinging to my dry patches in other areas. I’m also a very freckled lady so I love that this foundation still let’s my skin look natural with the freckles peeking through. I hate complete full coverage foundations because my whole body is covered in freckles and then it just makes my face look like someone stole a porcelain doll’s head and plucked it on my body. So mismatched. This foundation, however, makes my skin look natural and you can’t notice any difference between my face and the rest of my body. Love that! For me, a beauty blender is the ONLY way to apply this foundation. The beauty blender just makes this foundation look all the more natural.

I’ve repurchased this foundation multiple times, I think I’m only on my third or fourth bottle. (Not too bad for the last year or so!) Until something new and breathtaking hits the market, I’m sure I’ll be using this for years to come! If you’re looking for a natural foundation and have a similar skin type to mine, I very much recommend this product.

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

I’ve been going a little spender crazy this month but I’m not mad about it! Beauty product prices never cease to amaze me. So expensive! For products that go over the majority of my face though, I definitely pool more money into. Something simple like mascara I could care less about. I just want the best of the best on my skin. Speaking of skin, let’s start with skincare products first.

Origins Active Charcoal Mask

After my disastrous attempt with the Lush mask, I needed a good charcoal mask to work on clearing up my skin asap. I’ve heard about this mask for a while now and decided to give it a go. Charcoal is great for extracting black heads and all the junk that gets in your skin. This product is probably the one I am most excited for!

RCMA Powder

Kathleen Lights shed light on this beauty and I’ve finally decided to purchase it! I’m hoping it will be the perfect setting powder for the big day! (que the wedding bells)

Hourglass Stick Foundation

I’ve been very intrigued by the stick foundations and of all the reviews I have heard on them, this one seems like it would be a good fit for my skin. I decided to pick it up prior to the big day to try out. I’ll let you all know my thoughts! Let me know yours if you have a better wedding foundation recommendation!

Sephora Collection Pro Press Full Coverage Complexion Brush

The reviews I read on the Hourglass foundation recommended a brush as opposed to a sponge for fuller coverage, which is what I’m aiming for in this foundation. So I picked up this Sephora Pro brush because of all the amazing things people have said about it! It’s sooo soft, I almost feel bad getting makeup on it!

Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray

I fully anticipate this product to work wonders! I’ve not heard many people, if any, complain about this setting spray. I’m hoping this will give my face makeup the extra push that it needs on the big day!

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Frill Seeker

When I saw this color, I knew I needed to have it. The color is the exact shade I wanted for my toes on the big day. It’s going to compliment my dress beautifully!

Vegas Nay Lashes in Easy Elegance

Perfect lashes for the big day as well. Dramatic but wispy enough to not look ridiculous on my eyes! I’ve heard great things about this brand so I’m excited to finally give them a try.

As you can see, most of these items were purchased in mind for the big day (minus the Beauty Blender – just replacing my old sponge). I’m hoping I have the perfect combination within these products. I’ve picked some of the most recommended products so I’m not too worried. As always, I will update you all in a few weeks with my results!
