LOTD: Sweater Saturday ft. Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation

I spent quite a comfy Saturday. It's so refreshing to have the weekend . I went for lunch with some friends at Los Gatos Cafe which has the most amazing crabcake! It was so tasty. I can eat that everyday.   

Today's look is all about comfortable because that's what I've been feeling with the weather like this. It's such a perfect day for strolling-in-the-park kinda activity. Not too long ago, I purchase the Tarte Amazonian Clay full coverage airbrush foundation from Ulta after hearing Estee from essiebutton on youtube raves all about it. You can watch her video dedicated all about it here. The only mineral foundation I've tried is Bare Mineral which I really like, so I thought why not give this a try. 

Although on the website it's described to be full coverage, I wouldn't say the same. It does, though, have the ability to even out skin tone without looking powder-y. The powder is really finely milled and very smooth feeling. I can barely look at it when I swatch on my hand, yet it makes your skin look like your skin but better. Does it make sense?

These photos were taken about 5 hours after I applied my makeup. I've taken a stroll at Los Gatos downtown, the weather was just a tad windy. I think it held up pretty well. I did fell asleep and went to dinner right after, and the I can still see the foundation's still there but the coverage does diminish a lot. Overall I think it's a great alternative to a straight-up liquid foundation. It's weightless, and it's easier to blend, but be careful if you have dry patches. It is still powder after all. Make sure you moisturize enough and use primer beforehand. 

I'm loving my polkadot sweater. I got it from Nordstrom. Sadly it's no longer available.  I'm sure you can find something similar like this one from Forever 21.

What's your favorite mineral foundation?
