I’ve never trusted drug store makeup besides mascara, and I have always been spending between $30-$50 on high end foundations. The only issue is that I haven’t been happy with the way my foundation has been wearing lately. It is gone halfway through the day which is super frustrating. Then the other day I was watching YouTube videos of my favorite guru Nicole Guerriero and she was raving about Revlon Color Stay Whipped. I decided to give it a try and I am in LOVE. It was only $10 at Walmart and is absolutely amazing. It is so much better than my MUFE matte plus!
To apply- Use your hands…yes your hands. It doesn’t apply well with a brush or beauty blender nor did I get the finish I wanted with my brush/blender. I’m not one to use my hands but it looks amazing when applied this way!
The above picture describes what each makeup brush is used for. It’s best to use brushes when applying your makeup and not your hands. Your skin on your face is very fragile. When your pulling and tugging on the skin on your face you tend to create premature wrinkles and cause your skin to fall a lot faster than it should. The brushes are a lot easier on your skin and give your makeup a different finish that if you were to apply with your hands.
