The first look is m favorite! The skirt has a Japanese Dragon (also known as Tatsu) print with a high split up the side. I paired this staple piece with a simple black tank top and a neutral heel to break the color.

The yellow dress is inspired by the 90s hit show 90210. It’s a simple look that you could pair with sandals, wedges or white sperrys (for my tennis shoes lovers).

Love, Peace, Soul is the mood for this final look. I pulled off this 70s theme outfit with a sheer white off the shoulder blouse, navy blue and white bell-bottoms pants and neutral flat sandals.

Accessories spotlight goes to Goya Boutique for the tiny sunglasses and Modern Mosaic for the purse.

Mineral Fusion Sheet Tint Mineral Foundation

Foundation- is the lowest load-bearing part of a building, typically below ground level. 

 Applying foundation on the face is similar to designing the right foundation to fit the building conditions of a home.  The foundation is the starting point to achieving any beauty look. A couple of tips I’ve learned from my friends in purchasing foundation is to get the right shade for your skin (you can test this on the transverse carpal part of the hand), foundation color should match your neck, and consider the best formula for skin type (such as powder, liquid or water-based). This is all helpful, but a lot of foundations on the market has toxic ingredients that cause skin irritations, developmental problems, cancer, and even reproductive issues. This information alone has led me to a vegan foundation from Mineral Fusion’s makeup line named sheer tint mineral foundation. Mineral Fusion sheer tint mineral foundation is a lightweight foundation that gives full coverage with a consistent texture that goes on smoothly and has a luminous finish. To all the natural beauties out there, you can get the appearance of having no foundation without masking your natural skin.  I have worn this product on numerous occasions and received compliments on how beautiful my skin looks.  My only gripe with this product is that there are only three shades available for this line. I was fortunate enough to find a shade that compliments me, but everyone should be able to experience how unique this product is. I want to recommend creating different colors for customers with darker, yellow, or cooler skin tones. 

Here are five products to stay away from when picking out your next foundation: BHA, Siloxanes (D4&D5), Lead, Mercury, and Talc.

Mineral Fusion Sheer Tint Mineral Foundation retails $32.99
