melissaaaboo asked: is it true that foundations with spf makes you look white in pictures? if so. which drugstore foundations do you recommend?

Yes, it’s true!  Not in ALL cases, because it depends on the brand and the formulation of the SPF in the foundation, but if you see your face shining back kind of pale in any flash photography, it’s most likely the SPF in your foundation.

There are a few good foundations at the drugstore without SPF, but honestly most have SOME kind of sun protection in them.  Not all of them flash back, as I mentioned above, and it really takes some trial and error to figure it out.  I recommend watching some of ItsJudyTime’s first impressions videos on YouTube - she does a flash test during her review so you can see if it gives a white cast or not!

Because I’m not going to pick and choose my foundations depending on whether or not I want to have my picture taken, I use a powder over top to minimize flashback.  Translucent setting powders don’t really work for this - only powder foundations without SPF will.

collectorofeyes asked: hi hilary! so i know this isn't a drugstore product, but i was wondering if you've ever used the tarte amazonian clay foundation before. it's pretty thick and full coverage and i was wondering what kind of brush i should use to apply it? thanks, i really love your blog!

Hey there!  Whenever people use my actual name on here I always get excited haha.

This is NOT just a drugstore blog… the slogan for DrugstorePrincess is “Beauty Advice for Every Budget”, so never feel afraid to ask questions about your higher-end products as well!  Tarte’s Amazonian Clay foundations is actually one of my favorites.  I love that it gives really full coverage without looking or feeling too thick on my skin!  

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Foundation - $38

Because this is a thicker foundation, I like to use a brush that’s a bit more dense.  With a full coverage product like this it’s important to really buff it into the skin in order to make it look natural.  Here are a few brushes I like for that task.

ELF Studio Powder Brush - $3

This is a dense, affordable, flat-topped brush that I use for just about everything.

[Buy]

Sephora Professional Airbrush Foundation Brush #56 - $32

This is a great brush.  It’s a cross between a rounded buffing brush and a traditional flat foundation brush.

[Buy]

Sigma Flat Top Kabuki Brush - $21

This is a really high quality dense brush that buffs foundation flawlessly into the skin.

[Buy]

Real Techniques “Buffing Brush” from the Core Collection - $18

$18 for a full set of good quality face brushes is a steal.  The buffing brush from this kit has a cult following and it’s a really nice round brush for applying complexion products.

[Buy]

Hope these recommendations work for you!  :)  Thank you so much for following!

bigbangluver asked: Hi~ I'm pregnant with my first child and i'm super excited however i'm not so excited for the stretch marks that i heard will come. Any items that can help me prevent them? Thank you! =)

Hello, congratulations!! Pregnancy is a beautiful time, and stretch marks are a true symbol for the sacrifice our bodies go through to create life.  I wish that I had a miracle product that I could say would 100% prevent these unfortunate scars, but as with all things, the amount or severity of the stretch marks you will get is completely unpredictable.  I do have some advice on the subject though!

The good old standby, cocoa butter, is actually a really good option.  Cocoa butter nourishes the skin really well, and will help the skin become a bit more supple, so that it stretches better.  An even better option is natural shea butter, or coconut oil.  Coconut oil is one of my favorite natural skincare/beauty ingredients.  Most raw coconut oil actually comes in a solid, and when I use it as a body moisturizer I like to just scrape out a chunk with my finger, warm it up in the palms of my hands, and spend a good amount of time working it into my skin.

image

Another really popular and effective product is BioOil.  This is a really rich, liquid moisturizing oil that’s main purpose is actually to be used for stretch marks.  I’ve known people to use this for prevention as well as the healing of stretch marks, so I’d recommend this for before and after your pregnancy!  It is basically just a mineral oil, but it also contains nourishing vitamins to improve the skin’s texture.

image

Use whatever method of moisturizer you choose twice a day, every day.  Make a real routine out of it, and stick to it.  It’s never too early to start using anti-stretch mark products!  Also, don’t forget to apply these products to other areas that may stretch during your pregnancy… it’s not just your tummy!

Hope this helps, and good luck with your pregnancy and journey to motherhood! <3
