Wet ‘N Wild Fergie Take On The Day…
TUTORIAL TIME! :D I’m loving this soft, floral look that is almost completely made from theBalm Balm Jovi palette. <3
YAY! A VIDEO! Come be nosey and rifle through my spring makeup with me. :)
Hit Pan Product Review: Wet ‘N Wild Fergie Take On The Day Mattifying Powder. This is a great alternative to the NARS Translucent Crystal Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder! This did not have a film layer on top unlike the NARS. I use this every day to set my under eye concealer. Because it’s a silica based powder I only need a small amount to set my concealer and it never looks cakey. The shimmer is very subtle and just adds a nice glow.
