There are some days I really don't feel like wearing makeup. YES even me, the queen of makeup and sparkle gets lazy or busy in the mornings when I just don't feel like dealing with blending or buffing in foundation, concealer etc. Luckily I've had the chance to try out L’Oréal Paris's Magic Nude Liquid Powder Foundation Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup with SPF 18 through SheSpeaks because it is the perfect everyday foundation !! 

This liquid to powder foundation blends in effortlessly to a velvety - silky natural lasting finish. I wouldn't say that this is a full coverage foundation, so a bit of concealer is needed if you have trouble areas like moi. I really love how this foundation wears too. Even after hours of having it on my face it doesn't oxidize or get that heavy feeling. There are some foundations I use and love at first but after a few hours I just want to scrap them off my face - that is not the case with the Magic Nude. I love how this feels on my face, I have to resist petting it ! 

This foundation is perfect for those no makeup | makeup days 

Now I have combination skin. Meaning I get dry on my cheeks and around my blemishes but on the other hand get shiny on my forehead and sides of my nose. Being that my skin gets oily after a while - despite my best efforts to combat this - this foundation holds up pretty dang well. It seems to stay put and not move around where you can see your skin and then the foundation on the face - its not pretty when foundations do this. As for my dry spots, if they are just slightly dry they aren't a trouble however if they are pretty dried out this liquid powder does tend to cling to those areas - the short of it - I would not recommend this to anyone with super dry skin. To help smooth over my slightly dry areas I like to apply a light moisturizer, wait for it to soak in then if I have time pat on some primer ( I like the Studio Gear Prime Objective Primer -- Use coupon code SPARKLEME13 and get 10% off & Free shipping !!) this just give an extra barrier of smoothingness for the liquid powder to glide over. 

The shade I am using is 316 Nude Beige

The formula is very very liquidy so make sure you shake it super extra well and carefully pour it on to the back of your hand using your fingers to lightly pat / apply it to your face -- please don't forget to wash your hands with soap before directly touching your face !! Oh I almost forgot the best part !! I love how I don't have to set this foundation with a powder, with my random dry spots powder just tends to glop to them making my whole makeup job look botched and a waste of time. Yes love the finish of this foundation !
See my review / demo video for more info and insight on this amazing foundation 

What L’Oréal has to say about it : 
This revolutionary liquid-powder formula glides on and transforms on contact to a fresh, powder-like finish for a look that’s flawless,yet undetectable. The lightweight foundation with SPF 18 will make you feel like you aren’t wearing makeup at all!

To apply: Shake well. For best results, pour just a few drops onto fingers and apply directly onto skin. Not recommended for use with a sponge or brush.

L’Oréal Paris Magic Nude retails for approximately $12.95 for 1 fl oz. It is available in 12 shades and is available at mass food and drug retailers nationwide.

I remember I put at least two layers plus concealer on this day knowing the lash tech would be so close to my face haha !
