These 3 foundations have been in heavy rotation. Mainly because of price points and the event in which I am using them. For starters, I have really oily skin. My t-zone is an oily mess. After trial and error with a few foundations, I finally found a variety of foundations that do not require me to keep oil blotting sheets in my bag and blot my face throughout the day like a grease ball. I love a matte finish and these foundations give me just that.

1. The e.l.f Cosmetics flawless finish foundation is oil-free and gives a semi-matte finish. I mostly use this foundation throughout the week for class because it's lightweight and just one pump is enough. It's also $6 and contains SPF which is wonderful!! The downside is that they do not cater to all skin complexions - there is only 5 shades. You can purchase it any e.l.f store or at any Target and Walmart.

2. The Giorgio Armani lasting silk foundation is my go-to for a night out or when I know I will for sure be photographed. It gives a satin matte finish and just two pumps is enough to give me a medium coverage. It's $62 which is very pricey but definitely worth the splurge. Because I rotate between foundations, it will last me quite a long time cause let's be real - spending $62 every 2-3 months on foundation is not ideal. You can purchase it at Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Sephora or Neiman Marcus.

3. The L'ORÉAL Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation is holy grail and i'm sure most of you would agree. It's light on the skin and lasting. It's $12.99 and worth it for the amount of product you're getting. It can be purchased at Target, Walmart or Ulta.

The 24K gold mask is infused with pure 24k gold which is uhhhh so cool! It lifts, revitalizes and refreshes the face. It's anti-aging and it is never too early to start taking care of your skin. It leaves my face silky smooth and glowing. I love it! It's $80 and you can find it at Sephora, Ulta, or Amazon.

My hair has been through a lot. Between tons of color changes, chops, and extensions it's finally at a healthy state and I am doing everything I can to keep it that way. My hair seems to only live in extremes, greasy or sahara dry. But after styling, I spray it once into my hands and pass it through the middle and ends of my hair. It adds the perfect amount of shine and controls my frizziness without being too oily. It also smells heavenly. It's $9.74 and can be purchased at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Walmart.
