Foundation Trials and Errors, and my humble birthday =)

Hi everyone!! Sorry I've been so MIA but I really hope you're all out and about and too busy enjoying your summer to notice little ol' me anyway!! You'll accept this loooooooong post as a peace offering and forgive me, right? *puppy eyes*

As you know, I've been on the hunt for my perfection foundation...and still no luck! Even though I wear very little makeup during the day, I still want to find the perfect foundation for going out at night, especially since it usually means taking a lot of pictures with bright flash. My idea of the perfect foundation is one that feels lightweight but offers enough coverage for a natural and flawless look, and doesn't make my face look ghost white in pictures with flash. What a MISSION this is, indeed!

I actually liked the MAC Studio Sculpt (from the makeover for the wedding I went to last month) BUT it failed the flash test (completely and utterly). So I went by the MAC store because I wanted to try the Studio Tech foundation (in NC 30 applied by a MAC MUA). What did I think of it? Felt heavy and kind of sticky and cakey. =( I know from reading Julie's review that if I buy it, I could thin it out with Fix+. The funny thing was that the MUA said Studio Tech is lighter than Studio Sculpt (used on me for my friend's wedding), but I actually liked Studio Sculpt better because it felt more lightweight. And...this one also failed the camera flash test (I know by now you're questioning my camera flash, but let me point out that it's only MY face that comes out white and not anyone else's, guys or girls with makeup).

Late Last Weekend Update

Sorry so late! I'm such a White Rabbit, always running late! This is going to be a really long post to make up for my lateness (i.e., very picture heavy!).

First things first, I dyed my hair again! Yeah...what's new...well it was supposed to be "dark ash brown" but it came out black!

My makeup is the same as the last blog post, so you can see how the dark ash shade really minimalizes the redness in my skin tone and cools down my face.

my usual looking-down look
