Favorite Drugstore Foundations Summer 2016

"At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough. You don't need to photograph, paint, or even remember it. It is enough." ~ Toni Morrison

Hey sweetie pies, happy Monday! I recently picked up a new drugstore foundation and I got to thinking that I needed to share with you all my fave drugstore foundations. I also wanted to tailor it to theme of summer because wearing a full face of makeup in the summer can sometimes be a drag. Especially if you combo-oily skin like your girl here. You will definitely want something that is light coverage but definitely does the job and help with oil control. I figured I would share a few of my fave drugstore foundations that are great for the summer. 

A lot of beauty bloggers and YouTubers have raved about this product! It has a nice consistency and of course it is MATTE! Yes please!

I also like this one as well but wouldn't say that it is my all time favorite, It is not a matte foundation so I definitly make sure that I set with powder and that I bring it with me to touch up throughout the day. 

My third and final fave is definitely this one! It has medium coverage but it is buildable. I love it and I was able to easily find a color that suits me. That made me very happy considering that I am a woman of color and it can be a little tricky at times. I love the consistency and I don't have to do a lot of retouching throughout the day!

What drugstore foundation is YOUR fave? What is your skin type and how does your fave drugstore foundation work for you? I would love to know!

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

3 Pros and Cons Being a Freelancer

"Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free." ~ Jim Morrison ***Stock Image by Wonderlass***
Are you or have you ever thought about being a freelancer? The entire concept for most means freedom to do what you want. Setting your hours. Getting to sleep in. Working when you feel like it. While some of those are true, I think people get a false perception for what it's really like to be a freelancer. I freelance dance and write so I want to share some pro's and con's. These statements are my own opinions so I suggest taking it with a grain of salt.
Pros 1. You are ultimately your own boss. You can dictate what hours you work and how long you work for the most part. Being your own boss means independence and not having to answer to someone else. 
2. You can work as little or as much as you want. Since you are your own boss, you can determine how many projects you take on at a time. Usua…
