‣ WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?

If you've been a follower of mine for a while you know my skin struggles. I've suffered from acne since I was a teenager and now that I'm in my 30's, I've gotten most of it under control but still carry the same insecurities. However painful my experiences were growing up, they're part of the reason I fell in love with makeup. Makeup allowed me to worry less, gain confidence and eventually lead to doing it professionally; which is why I took on the #GoMirrorless challenge.

A few months ago Shiseido approached me to try their new Synchro Skin Lasting Foundation, a long-lasting oil-free foundation that's supposed to look and feel like your skin. Sounded too good to be true so I put it to the test and *spoiler alert* I was immediately pleased with how it wore.

Now I know the challenge was to #GoMirrorless, meaning I shouldn't have to worry about my foundation therefore I'm free of mirrors and free to experience life. BUT the entire first day that I wore Synchro Skin, I did a fair number of mirror glances because I was genuinely so impressed with how my skin looked! It looked and felt like my skin but thanks to the medium (and slightly buildable) coverage - without my pesky insecurities. I've been using it ever since.

I said this in my April Beauty Review but I'll say it again, I haven't been so happy with a foundation in a very long time. Synchro Skin has been my go-to since the first day I tried it. I wear it in confidence because it allows me to feel my best and who doesn't want that? We all have millions of thoughts that run through our minds. Personally, I'm constantly catching myself in a whirlwind of thoughts and I have to remind myself to simply slow down and take a breath. We all have things to do, places to go and we worry about how it will all get done because how on earth can we do it all while staying sane and looking effortless. Well, for me at least I don't have to worry about my foundation.
