Beauty Corner: Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation

I'm not one to switch up my foundation often. In fact, I've been wearing the same brand of foundation and powder for the past 2 years. As a result of getting facial sunburn from my trip to Hawaii last month, I wasn't able to wear my regular so when I was contacted to review Make Up For Ever's new Ultra HD line, I was thrilled. 

Make Up For Ever (M.U.F.E) definitely went the distance when it came to creating the new Ultra HD foundation. So far, my favorite factor is the staying power along with it's invisibility and natural look. Aside from finding a foundation that covers without being heavy, the other qualms I've faced is matching my skin color. This UltraHD made it harder-not because they didn't have a shade for me, but because there were so many options. Yes, color options for brown girls!! 40 shades to be exact.

The difference-
According to Make Up For Ever, the new Ultra HD is was  developed specifically for the film and TV industry's most advanced technology.
Ultra HD provides a naturally flawless complexion-on and off camera.Completely invisible under the latest, super-focused 4k lens, this revolutionary foundation featuresuniquely-coated pigments that provide medium to buildable coverage with an even lighter weight, second-skin texture that looks just like skin.

Ultra HD is the perfect everyday foundation for a flawless complexion with little to no effort. Whether you go for the liquid or foundation stick, you can't lose. They both provide a smooth canvas for the everyday face.

Capetown: Suede Jumpsuit and Cape Blazer

It's finally starting to feel a tad bit fall-like here in NYC and I am LOVING IT! If you follow me on instagram, you would've seen today's look from the StyleWatch Magazine party I attended last week. Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to photograph it for the blog then, but was able to do this past weekend since I wore it to a birthday dinner party on Saturday.

I'm pretty much obsessed with suede, faux suede, suede name it. This one piece bandeaux top jumpsuit was soft to the touch and unconfining. Underneath, I opted for my extrafirm shapewear for a smooth tummy area. I threw over my cape blazer for a dramatic effect in a crisp white color. I already have my eye on this longline version too!

OFFICE STYLE: The informal formal Suit

In my last edition of the blog series, Power Dressing, I introduced you to the option of going with a jumpsuit for that no nonsense boss lady vibe. Today, I'm bringing another non-traditional option.

When it comes to dressing for the office, I want to exude professionalism while staying true to myself. I've never been one for the mundane blazer and slacks suit, so I'm always on the look out for an alternate. While leisurely strolling through Forever 21 last week, I came across this versatile longline vest. A few feet away, I spotted the matching pants and it hit me-this is the kind of suit that's meant for me!  It can take me from the office to dinner and drinks. Not to mention, the vest will work with a fitted pencil skirt and jeans. Don't you just love when outfits just come together?!!

I am SOO happy to let the cat out the bag. I will be in the next issue (October) of People Stylewatch magazine which is released on newsstands tomorrow!! I know you've guys noticed my denim obsession from the past few posts because finding the right denim fit is like digging for gold especially for a plus size body like mine. My biggest issue is finding denim that would help conceal or smooth out the fatty area below my belly button-the bane of my existence. Today I'm sharing some behind the scenes pictures of my quest for the perfect belly flattening jeans with People Stylewatch Magazine.

Special thanks to Rebecca Reed/People StyleWatch for the pictures.

I'm headed to the official issue release party tonight so make sure to follow me on snapchat (CurvEnvy) for behind the scenes shenanigans and first look of the official spread!

Don't forget to get a copy of the issue and let me know what you think. Did I pick the right fit?

FALLing for Denim with Target

This post is sponsored by Target

This fall there's no such thing as too much denim. Oddly enough, denim bottoms-from skirts to joggers to regular jeans, have become a trend and a wardrobe must-have. Whether you're into basic dark wash or a damsel in distressed boyfriend jeans, you're bound to find a pair that works for you. Thanks to Target, I was able to come up with a slew of different denim looks for different events in my life. I found such an array of styles at Target that it was hard for me to not buy 10 pairs. Unfortunately, my closet can't contain my sudden denim obsession so I brought it down to 3 cuts-flare, jegging and boyfriend.
