So, the guy (yes, it was a guy) started putting the foundation on my face, saying it looked perfect. To be honest, I was not happy because my face was waaaay whiter than my neck. I mean really? It was someone's wedding so I let it pass.
By the time I saw the pictures, I was so sure, I would never wear foundation again. EVER.
But then my girl, Y and I went to the women's conference in 2012 where we lined up for a free mini makeover at Benefit where the lady put foundation on me and when I got home, Ron was staring at my face while telling me how good it looks. He says he still prefers me without make up though. So that was my second encounter and it was a good one.
Third was on our wedding day and I HAD to wear foundation or else I will not look as good as I did in the pictures. LOL Since the place I got my face done that day got good reviews and it was in fact already 2012 and there had been a lot of innovation in the beauty industry, I was less worried about looking cakey on my wedding day. Also, I told the lady who put make up on me that I am terrified of wearing foundation because I had a bad experience. She was super nice and made sure to test the products on my jawline and showing it to me before she proceeded.
I have tried Benefit's Toasted Beige and it looked really good on my face. Also, it was very light and did not irritate my skin - which is good because I get rashes very easily. But it's $36 a bottle. For a girl who doesn't wear makeup everyday, I think it's too much. Are there any good pharmacy brands out there?
