Dior Backstage Foundation

The holy grail of foundations is both lightweight and high-coverage. I would love to someday find a foundation that just makes my skin look perfect without being super obvious that I’m wearing foundation. While that’s still not something that I’ve found, I have found something pretty darn close: the Dior Backstage Foundation. This product can be purchased at Sephora and similar retailers for just $40. I recently received the cutest little sample, and I’m very impressed!

Compared to other luxury foundations, this one is practically a bargain! It also comes in 40 shades, which is a great variety. I’m so glad that foundations are becoming more and more inclusive. Also, fun fact: this is the foundation that Meghan Markle wore to the royal wedding!!

This foundation is so lightweight and blendable, but it is also very medium coverage. I was impressed by the opacity for something so weightless. It won’t cover a ginormous breakout, but it will even out the skintone and hide minor imperfections.

Regarding the finish, it is matte without being dull. I like this because it seems to work well when my skin is feeling dry and when it’s feeling oily. Like most people, my skin changes with the seasons, so I appreciate how versatile this foundation appears to be.

Also, I love that I need so little of this foundation to cover up. My teeny tiny sample is still going strong after more than two weeks of applications. I can’t imagine how long a full-sized bottle will last, but I suspect I will not be disappointed after this experience. I definitely plan on purchasing this one in the next Sephora Rouge sale (starting August 24th!).

Have you tried this one? What did you think? Be sure to let me know your thoughts in the comment section!

A Modern Cinderella: Meghan Markle and the Royal Wedding

Of course I woke up early today to experience the royal wedding! Honestly, I was surprised at how emotional I got while watching the ceremony proceeding. It was beautiful, elegant, and everything I wanted to see. I love how the royal family has embraced Meghan. You could tell that she and Harry have such genuine love, and I wish them a lifetime of happiness.

Prince Charles walking Meghan down the aisle is so sweet. Apparently, she even asked him herself and there was no hesitation at all. She’s been fully embraced as a member of the family, and I love it so much!

Also, Meghan’s train goes on for days. It’s so epic – major wedding goals right there.

Of course the Queen looked fabulous in lime and purple!

And Kate and Camilla win for best hats!

Prince Harry and Prince William

The brothers look so dapper. Diana would be so proud of the lovely men they’ve become!

Meghan’s mom is beautiful too and she was just beaming with pride at her daughter!

Also, I can’t end this blog without acknowledging the fantastic Bishop Curry! He delivered a legitimate sermon filled with so much passion. His words were powerful, but I also loved the expressions on the stoic British people who clearly have never experienced a gospel preacher with so much fire!

Since this is a fashion blog, I should probably also mention that this lovely wedding dress is Givenchy! It’s so elegant and timeless. I was expecting something more modern, but this was absolutely gorgeous.

This was a wedding to remember. It was absolutely amazing. Congrats Harry and Meghan!

Fashions for a Royal Wedding 

I am so excited for the royal wedding this Saturday! My invitation did get lost in the mail, but I still plan on celebrating in style. I browsed Nordstrom‘s website for inspiration on what I might have worn had I actually been invited. I’m not 100% certain on royal wedding protocol, but I think these are pretty safe choices for most spring afternoon weddings!
