New Year, New Makeup, New You

It’s the beginning of the new year, which means social media is flooded with ”new year, new me.” Everyone’s trying something new, why not take your makeup along with that?

Fenty Beauty Pro Filter Instant Retouch Concealer

Rihanna launched her first line of makeup in September of 2017, called Fenty Beauty. Fenty Beauty Foundation appeals towards a wider variety of colors; It is also acclimated, so it has longer wear than regular foundations. If Fenty Beauty Foundation has 4.2 stars, why would the new concealers not be as great?

This concealer comes in fifty shades, medium to full coverage, while being sweatproof and matte. Rihanna says this concealer is “the cure for bags, dark circles, hangovers, and bad decisions.” After a long night of studying, Rihanna’s Fenty Concealer would be the perfect cover-up.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder

Many setting powders promise to be translucent, but not many hold up that promise. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder comes in eight different shades and is completely weightless.

Supposedly, this setting powder will not leave you with a white cast, as seen many times in photos with flash. The main purpose is to reduce shine, blur the look of pores, fine lines, and imperfections that won’t flashback. It is supposed to not crack while settling and brightening your face.
