Sometimes Less is MORE: #NARS Sheer Glow

I usually go for full coverage foundations. Not because I’ve need it — but mostly because I thought that was the only way I would get a flawless finish. Grabbing a sheer foundation made me a little uneasy, but I’m always up for trying new things — and BOY am I glad I did! Keep reading to find out why!!

There’s one, and only one, downside to this product — it doesn’t come with a pump… WHY?! The good thing is that you can buy one at the store. I’m wearing Macao.

I start by applying a concealer that’s about 3 shades lighter than my skin color. I apply that down the bridge of my nose, under my eyes, and on my chin. Then, I contour using a shade that’s about 3 shades darker than my skin color. I apply that on the hollows of my cheeks, around my hairline, and down each side of my nose. Then I apply this foundation with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush. It provides just the right amount of coverage, without completely covering my skin. I love the result!! I have coverage where I need it, and a radiant glow!
