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

As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

Hey hey sweetie pies! Today's post is a look that I have had in heavy rotation. I mean we all have that "no fail" outfit that we love to wear any and everywhere. It is super comfy and you still look put together. I opted for this cotton, slightly oversized button down and dark wash fitted jeans. I love wearing it with sandals for daytime, heels for nighttime and sneakers for weekend. For the daytime, I pretty much style it like I have here. I have just wore the shirt as is with my jeans cuffed. I paired it with this conv…
