I have very light skin that looks "dirty" wearing most foundations that are light. Living in Miami has its own issues. The humidity with make your make-up (even waterproof is not humidity proof) run to some place you don't want it. Keeping hair from getting frizzy is a daily challenge. But, game on. I'm out to find great products and love reading about what is working for others!

Hand sanitizer is great for cleaning make-up brushes too! Run the excess through your comb and hair brushes.
Glam...hmm depends on the mood really. An hour minimum but if things are looking good, I can experiment with color and add more time to the routine.

Recently I spent too much time in Sephora enjoying the new products. A spritz of perfume on this side a dab here. The foundations were great and finding a color that worked well on my face wasn't easy. (can you see where this is going??) Anyway, was so wrapped up in the business of making a decision that I forgot to clean up before I walked out of the store. I found out pretty quickly why people in the mall were staring at me!
My mother decided my curly frizzy hair was cute and had it cut short. When friends passed around yearbooks to sign, I used a black marker to sign all over my new hairdo.
Seriously good stuff! It is so good, you don't need foundation on your entire face after applying this primer. It is slightly pink so you glow and the imperfections are filled in!! And it lasts so don't be put off with the initial price.
Smashbox Halo powder. Resisted at first, but my sister was relentless. Shave off a new batch ever day. It is a moisturizer, a foundation and a powder that doesn't look dry and cakey. Really, this is a must try for all ages and all skin types!
