Milani Cosmetics: Yellow Undertoned Foundation and Powder

Okay so to make it easier for everyone, I'm going to list the shades of makeup that are yellow toned, in order of lightest to darkest. That way, if you are not NC25, but have yellow undertones, you can still benefit :)

Okay, here we go!

My local target has gotten some new ELF products!

- E.L.F. Flawless Finish Foundation
- E.L.F. Studio High Definition Powder

It was recently announced that ELF will be getting new displays and more products in Target stores this March.

I'll post up pics next time.

You can always send in your pictures when you see a new item and I'll post it online :)

NC25 Match: Drugstore and High End Foundations

I have been asked several times by readers to make a list of all the foundations (drug store and high end) that match our NC25 skintone.

Hope this helps.

Coty Airspun Face Powder

Product: Coty Airspun Face Powder
Shade: Naturally Neutral
Price: $7-9 (depending on where you buy it)

This is amaaaazing!!!

It keeps me oil free all day (literally). My make up stays put and doesn't come off, it doesn't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. It's the best mattifying/setting powder on the market...and there is a TON of product for such a low price! Will last you over a year!

Translucent: pink
Extra coverage translucent: Neutral. It has slight yellow tones. Made me look pink and darker as the day went along. Oxidized?
Naturally Neutral: true yellow toned. Perfect match!
