The Power of Makeup

My skin is freaking the f-out lately. I think it's a combination of nerves, weather changes and hormones. Anyway, I wanted to show you just what a little foundation and concealer does. And while you may still see the blemishes, I swear I feel so much better knowing that a lot of people see less of them than I do at home! Now these "before" pictures were actually taken "after" aka I just removed my makeup. I don't even want to think what would have happened had I walked around with a big tear drop on my cheek, not good things for my professional life anyway! And yes, the foundation/concealer pretty much stuck around all day (though it has left my skin a bit dry/patchy - it probably looked better this morning). For those interested it's the Revlon Photoready in Ivory 001 reviewed here and the concealer is the ELF liquid one in Ivory reviewed here.
You can still see the blemish on my chin and no I'm not wearing eye makeup and yes, I am exhausted, thank you!
Do you see the unevenness, redness and well, that big red thing on my chin? Cause I do, and it's sad! It made me cry a big asymmetrical eyeliner tear!

I have still not tried Photoready, but I need to cross off a few foundations before I go adding more to my stash.

@Cosmetics: It's really nice, although it appears the lighter shades missed out on the shimmer people are saying the darker shades have.

Oh I must say, I like this. Really nice coverage on the cheeks for you and just very evening out and basically nice!

Looks like a more high end foundation than just Revlon!

That foundation looks like it has great coverage!

@Fee: It definitely cinches the title as my favorite drugstore foundation and shockingly light enough (while the Revlon Colorstay is too yellow).

@PCS: It has amazing coverage and I just apply it with my fingers. If you haven't tried it, I'd pick it up the next time it's on sale for sure. =)

At first I didn't like Photoready at all, but found I could work with it when mixed with Colourstay, but now it's Autumn I even like it on it's own as it gives my skin a bit of a glow and combats central heating dryness/dullness!
