I’ve always use a setting powder/ translucent powder to set my makeup. Whether I’m wearing a full face or a light makeup. I’ve been using Laura Mercier’s translucent powder and really like it except for the price ($38). Also every single time I’ve bought the powder the container breaks which means I loose so much of the expensive powder ha ha. I actually purchased a different container that I transfer my Laura Mercier translucent powder into. I go this extra length because I really like the product but I do think it’s a tad expensive. Therefore I decided to try Ben Nye translucent power instead. Their big jar contains 8.0 oz and only cost $11!!!!! Which is way better than Laura Mercier for $38 for 1 oz.

I know Makeup By Mario – Kim Kardashian’s in-house makeup artist is a very big fan of Ben Nye. I think she uses the Banana which is more yellow. I bought the Fair Skin color since I prefer my translucent powder with no color and my skin also has a pink undertone compare to Kim’s olive tone.

I haven’t worn makeup since I  bought it yesterday but I’ll let you guys know how I like it. I mean it would be amazing if I could save the extra money.

Translucent Powder helps set your cream makeup such as contour, foundation, concealer, highlight so your face doesn’t look oily or shiny. It is also really good for avoiding your mascara to get under your eyes. A translucent powder doesn’t add colorist is a sheer, colorless facial powder – I highly recommend applying it with a large brush or a beauty blender.

My New Hair!!!

Since I’ve been sick with a deadly facial infection (READ MORE HERE) my hair hasn’t been a priority. Mostly my hair has been in two french braids or a sad ugly bun. I’ve been in bed for so long that my hair eventually gave up on me ha ha.

I truly believe feeling good about the way you look helps healing you physically. So as soon as I had a little bit of extra energy I called Charlie to my house – you gotta love house calls ha ha. Charlie is the master when it comes to blondes which is actually really hard to find in Los Angeles believe it or it. Most hairdressers aren’t used to Scandinavian fine blonde hair and tend to over bleach it. I wanted highlights to lift my own color to overall give my hair fresh color not go full Playboy Bunny 😉

I’m so pleased with my hair and I can’t wait to actually have enough energy to go out a whip it back and forth 😉  Anyways if you are in the Los Angeles area and need someone to bless you with some blonde highlights hit me up and I’ll link you up with Charlie <3

I’ve decided to do something new on my blog; Video Makeup tutorials. I’ve partnered up with my professional makeup artist Christian who did my makeup for my music video, single cover shoot and my press photos. Follow her on IG @ChristiantheMUA
