FOUNDATION: No7 // LIPSTICK:  Stila Liquid Matte in ‘Fiery’ // LIPSTICKCharlotte Tilbury

If I could take one item with me from my make up bag on a trip it would be my foundation for sure!! I think if you have a nice smooth base then everything else looks good. Since I have some blemishes on my face I always like to have a good foundation that I don’t have to use a concealer with and that doesn’t sink into my pores. After my q&a video tons of you asked about the new foundation I tried so I made a video talking about it and a couple other products I love lately!! The No7 foundation is only $15.99 and you can get it at Target!! It seriously leaves your skin looking sooo smooth. Hope you guys like the video and if you have any other suggestions for favorites videos you would like to see (i.e. favorite skin care, favorite baby products, or whatever) then leave them in the comments!!

  1. Went to the store and got this foundation, no coverage what so ever. Kinda really bummed…any other suggestions? I returned the product and had the girl in checkout tell me that I’m not the first to not be happy with it!

  2. I’ve been on the lookout for a foundation that will stay put and won’t start to look splotchy in high heat/humidity since we moved to D.C. does this one hold up completely in the humidity of New York or do you have to touch up throughout the day?

    1. Or, are there any other foundations that have worked great for you in the humidity? My foundations and primers all seem to melt right off within an hour and it’s driving me crazy!

  3. Love this post! I tried to scroll through the comments to see if you answered this question already, but so many people loved it I can’t get through them all! I recently purchase the No 7 foundation too and I am IN LOVE with the color and how well it stays throughout the day. I’m always worried about being too heavy handed, so I wondered what your recommendation was to get a nice even coverage. I saw in your video you said you use a pump and apply it with the beauty blender and wondered, only one pump?! I feel like I need 3! Thanks!!

  4. Love this!! Just one question, dos the No7 Foundation make your face feel greasy or oily? Thanks, xoxo

  5. Love this!! Just one question, does the No7 foundation make your skin feel oily or greasy? thanks, xoxo

  6. a skincare favorites would be really cool I think! the skincare is the base for the makeup!

  7. hello Amber… thank you for your advice… and I have a question… do you do makeup every day?

  8. I’m pretty new to your blog I just started following and browsing ????and I’m obsessed! What’s the lipstick you wear on a daily basis.. It looks the one in this video! I’d love to know thanks so much!!

    1. Thanks so much Lauren!! And the one I wear the most is called ‘Coral Bliss’ by MAC 🙂

  9. Thanks for the suggestions!! I may need to run to target to get that foundation!

    thebraidedblonde.blogspot.com

  10. I follow you on snapchat and I saw your recent snaps that you got new like samples in. I was wondering if you bought all those samples or do companies let you sample them for free. If so, how did you get about doing that! Ps. I think you are really pretty!

    1. Thank you so much for following along!! And companies sent me different products to try and I am a full time blogger so that is how I get to try lots of things out and review them!

  11. Your make up in this video is flawless! 🙂 I know you have tons of hair tutorials but would you ever do a makeup tutorial?

    1. Thank you so much!! So nice of you!! And thanks for the request, I may! xo

  12. Thanks so much for sharing! I don’t think I’ve seen this answered already, but what do you use on top of your foundation? Do you use a certain powder you like? This is so helpful. I have those hormone spots too from pregnancy and they are a pain to try and cover.

    1. Of course!! I am glad you liked it 🙂 And I love my LORAC powder.

  13. These favorites videos are so entertaining! I think it would be fun to hear you talk about your favorite foods you eat throughout the day and exercise routines. Your blog is so beautiful and I think that beauty shines from the inside out! Thanks <3

  14. Love hearing about affordable products! Last time I bought my Dior foundation they told me it would be discontinued so I’ll definitely be trying this one! Do you use a primer first? And what do you use on your eyebrows or are they tattooed? They always look perfect!
    Would also love to hear what toys you take out with you to keep a toddler busy (ie. at restaurants) but don’t take up a ton of space!
    Thanks for always introducing me to new stuff!

    1. Yay!! So glad to hear that!! I always get excited when I find a quality product that isn’t way overpriced! And yes! I use a primer before, and as far as my eyebrows, no, they aren’t tattooed, I just fill them in using a palette called ‘Brow Bar To Go’. And I love that suggestion!! Thanks so much!!

  15. Hi Amber! Love the video! Where do u get your hair dyed? I am looking for a good place in new york. I love your eye makeup in this video it’s so pretty!

    1. Thank you!! And I get it done by Rachel Flores at Arrojo Salon.

  16. Another video that I would love to see is something about your relationship with David! I have a 2 year old and an 8 week old. I’m finding it hard to have “me” time and “us” time since so much of my time is devoted to the kids. How do you make time for you and David? Thanks! Love your blog and Instagram so much!

    1. Oh that is a great idea!! Thanks so much!! I totally know what you mean, it isn’t always easy to find a balance 🙂

  17. I would love to see a video on all if your baby favs along with your kids clothing recommendations. Especially your daughters adorable hats!! Love your blog and snapchat.

  18. Love what you do! Have you already or do you think you will ever do a video of your makeup process? I’d love to see how you do it all. I have trouble sometimes knowing HOW to use certain products, where, how much, what brushes to use, etc.

    xx

    1. I agree! Also, try Afrin nasal spray Amber for the eye tears. Cured mine.

    2. Thank you so much Holly!! I appreciate that 🙂 And I love that video idea, thanks!!

  19. Love a foundation that can do it all! New mommies don’t have time to put 5 things on their face. I’ll have to try that stuff. I don’t wear much make up anyways so when I do I want it to be multi functional! I’d love to see a video on your baby products you couldn’t live without. (Swings, toys swaddles etc)

    Landinhand.WordPress.com

    1. Exactly!! If I can skip a step or two, I am all for it haha! And awesome, thanks so much for the suggestion!! xo

  20. Do you use a setting spray or anything on top of your foundation?

  21. You should do a video/post for all your favorites stores and shops for baby clothes

  22. Love this video! I am totally going to have to try No7 foundation now!

    Ps. where do you get your hair colored in the city?? I am in desperate need of finding a new place to go and I am super picky with my hair

  23. Loved your video! What eyeliner are you wearing? I would love to see a tutorial on your eye look!

    1. Thank you Cam!! It is the Lancome ‘artliner precision point eye liner’ 🙂

  24. I’ve been eyeing that foundation at target and now I really want to try it.. Thanks!

  25. Thanks for sharing your beauty products and I loved to know I’m not the only one who suffers from these tiny issues you’ve mentioned. One nice tip for the face & eyes, if I may share with you… I live in São Paulo, Brazil, where the air is really polluted and dry, so every once in a while, during the day, I damp a little piece of cotton with “soro physiological” (I’m not really sure how to say it in english)/marine solution. It is really cheap, you can get it in any drugstore, and it hydrates your skin like nothing else. You can also just wash your eyes with it, since it’s completely pure – I also pour some on my nose when it gets reeeeally dry. At hospitals they usually inject this soro if you’re sick and dehydrated, which means it hydrates a lot, either skin and eyes! Let me know if you get to try it and like it! xx

    1. Of course!! Thanks so much for reading Julia!! And thank you for the amazing tip!! I will definitely try that out. I appreciate it!!! xo

  26. Amber, you may have allergies and that is the reason your eyes are watering. I had the same thing happen to me and saw my eye doctor. He suggested using over the counter eye drops called zaditor. Used twice a day they really help. Just a thought.

    1. Thanks so much for the suggestion!! I will check that out 🙂

    1. I am so glad you saw this in time!! You will love it! And for the quality, the price point is amazing!! Let me know what you think 🙂

      1. I’ve been using this foundation for about a week now and LOVE it! It’s definitely a keeper. Thank you so much for the suggestion!

        1. Yay!! I am so glad you love it too 🙂 Thanks for the feedback!

  27. Great video! You should make one about your profession as a blogger. I’ve always been interested on how it all works!

    You’re such an inspiration! I love your blog so much! And you’re family is so adorable. ????

    1. Thank you Laura!! I appreciate the sweet comments 🙂 And I love that suggestion too! xo

    1. Thanks Brielle!! I love the Lancom artliner precision point eyeliner. xo

    1. Thanks so much Michaela!! I use a palette called “brow bar to go” 🙂

  28. Forgive me if this is on the site and I’ve missed it, but I’d love to know what eye cream/treatment you use.

    I really love your blog! Especially the pics of your kiddos!

    1. No worries at all!! I love the Estee Lauder eye brightening serum 🙂

  29. I’d love to see a favorite baby/toddler products video. If I remember correctly you did a post after Atticus was born, so I’m wondering now with two if any of those products have changed.

  30. I SO have to try the No.7 foundation! I currently use NARS and love it, but it’s a pretty penny hahaha. This one looks great on you! <3

    BlondieInTheCity.com

    1. Yes!! Definitely try it out 🙂 And I know right?! I was excited to find a more affordable and good quality alternative!! xo

  31. Loved hearing about your foundation! I’ve totally been overspending on foundation and not quite getting the results I want for the price but I’m going to give the one you suggested a try! It’s so much cheaper and looks great on you!

    1. Thanks so much!! I love sharing new makeup finds 🙂 I think you will love it!!

  32. Loved this video! What’s you’re favorite perfume Scent?

    1. Thank you!! And I love the Dolce and Gabanna floral drops scent 🙂

  33. I loved your tutorials, specially skin care. I would love more of your favorite skin routine, or how you do your facials. By the way, I loved the snapchat videos about your teeth. So funny how people assume you have to tell the world everything. Thanks for sharing your story and your beautiful smile!

    1. Thank you so much!! I am happy to hear that!! And thanks for the suggestion! I will definitely try and work that in. xoxo

  34. Hey Amber, just wondering what your height is? Thanks!

  35. Do you trim your own bangs? If so, could you do a tutorial? I trim my own, but they NEVER look as good as yours. Love your posts and videos, as always! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much!! And I haven’t trimmed them on my own yet, but I definitely may start doing it myself!! Thanks for the tutorial suggestion!! 🙂

  36. Please make a tutorial for your top knot! It is so perfect!!

  37. I know a while ago you said you used RetinA. Do you still use it? And did you use it while pregnant?

    1. I don’t use it that often anymore but I still have it for when I breakout or something 🙂

  38. Great video! Perfect length. I would love to see a makeup tutorial from you! Your make up always looks so nice!

  39. Great video! I am not a foundation person but I just may give it a try 🙂

    I would love for you to do a video outlining “a day in the life of a blogger” 🙂 I have always been intrigued by the profession and would love to see what your typical work day looks like 🙂

    Thanks so much for considering it!

    1. Thank you!! So glad you liked it 🙂 And I love the suggestion!! I will definitely keep that as an idea for a future video! xo

  40. Hi Amber! Loved your video as always. Do you set the foundation with powder? Your skin always looks flawless!

    1. Aww thank you so much!! So nice of you! And I will check that out, thanks!

  41. I definitely want to try that foundation! 🙂 Happy Tuesday Amber!

  42. Do you have any recommendations for a good mascara, eyeliner, and maybe foundation that are actually waterproof? I’m going to a lake in a couple months and would like to know of some products that actually work! Thanks!

    1. I love the Cover girl lashblast mascara (you can get it in waterproof) and for eyeliner, I use Lancome’s artliner precision point eyeliner (it is waterproof). As far as foundation, I would just use a good setting spray for after you finish your makeup, it will help a lot. I hope that helps!! xo

  43. Hey Amber I really liked this video! I think an idea for another video could be favorite hair care products. I know you wear extensions but even without them your hair is really long and healthy! 🙂

  44. hi! love love love! it would be awesome to see your skin care routine (face wash, moisturizer, etc.) and also your makeup routine and your products you use!! thanks! xo

  45. Love your video!! Can you do a video one day about moving to New York and the pros and cons?
    New York is such a big city and I think that would be an awesome video!!

    1. Thanks so much Alli!! and thank you for the suggestion!! I will keep that one in mind 🙂 I appreciate it!

  46. Amber, what mascara are you using? Do you use fake eyelashes? They always look so good!!! Love y’all ❤️❤️❤️

    1. I love Cover Girl Lashblast mascara 🙂 And yes, sometimes I have eyelash extensions or fake eyelashes on. xo

  47. Hey Amber! Your skin looks beautiful as always. I love your blog and have been following it for quite some time now. I know you swear by Estee Lauder double wear foundation so if you don’t mind me asking, why did you switch and how would you compare the 2? I am in the market for a new foundation.

    1. Aww thank you Camille!! And I still love Estee Lauder’s foundation but I love finding other brands that are comparable and more affordable. It is hard to find good quality drug store brands so I am glad I found one!! 🙂

  48. Love to see what your faves are! I’d love to see a post about what you and David eat during the weeks when you are eating healthier! I have such a problem knowing what to eat, and finding healthy things to eat that my husband will want to eat too!

  49. Please make a video about your favourite curling wand and other hair stuff???? THanks

    1. Love that idea! Thanks 🙂 BTW my favorite wand is by NuMe. xo

  50. I’m going to have to try that foundation! For the days i actually put on makeup. I would love to see favorites videos of food. Like favorite go to meals for your family, or favorite restaurants. Also favorite toddler activities and toys! Always looking for ways to entertain my toddler.

  52. I’d love to see videos about your favorite baby products etc… I’m expecting my first baby (a boy) in July and would love to hear any advice or tips from you on being a new mom! 🙂

    1. I love that idea!! Thanks so much!! And congrats to you!! That is coming up!! 🙂

  53. Amber you are the cutest ever. I loved that video! Thanks for the tips. I recently bought ‘fiery’ as per your recommendation and LOVE it! So thank you! Also I would love if you posted fave baby items, as well as maybe what you would pack for an overnight or weekend stay. And also what are your favourite things to do with and for yourself? Do you ever get time to yourself?
    Hope to meet you someday soon.
    mad love from Canada

    1. Aww thank you so much!! You are the sweetest!! And yay! So glad you love it too! It’s a gorgeous color. And thanks for the suggestions!! I love them! 🙂

  54. Hi Amber! I have been following you for quite some time now on instagram, and I have to say you are so beautiful and you have a sweet loving family! I wanted to ask do you use a special filter for your photos on your insta? I would love to know what filter it is cause you have amazing pictures.

    1. Hi!! Thank you so much for following along!! You are too kind 🙂 And I use a program called Lightroom to edit my pictures.

  55. Happy belated birthday Amber! Hope you celebrated with your beautiful family!

  56. Could you post the lipstick you’re wearing in this video? ❤️

    1. Yes of course!! It is an Avon perfectly matte lipstick in the shade ‘marvelous mocha’ 🙂

  57. My eyes water like crazy too! People always think I’m upset about something and I’m just like… Just my sensitive eyes. Lol. I’d love for you to do a blog or video of how you keep your teeth so white. Your teeth are seriously perfect! 🙂

    1. No way?! I am glad I am not the only one that struggles with that haha! Mine are so so sensitive! And aww thank you!! If you follow me on snapchat (amberfillerup), you can check out a video I did talking about them 😉

      1. Same here! Haha
        I follow your snapchat so I saw your post! Your veneers look so natural. I didn’t notice at all that you got them done. But I have also always thought your teeth were really white. Lol. I thought that maybe I needed to start doing the banana thing! Lol. Thanks for the reply! ????

  58. I like that you cut your videos short and only show 3 products 🙂 I agree sometimes these videos can get a bit boring. The foundation looks flawless in you <3
    The camera quality is also fab! What lens do you use?

    1. Thanks so much for the feedback!! I appreciate that so much!! And we use our canon 5d mark iii, typically with a 24-70mm 🙂 xo

  60. Great post, Amber! I’ll be trying to No7 foundation for sure, especially at that price! I would also love to see a post on your favorite home decor items, or household items!

    1. Aww thank you SO much!!! It was a great birthday! Thanks for the love!!! You totally made my day! Love ya!! xo

    1. It is so so good!! Try it out for sure!! And oh really?! Maybe try putting on a little chapstick before! Have you tried the Stila bran?

  63. Thanks for the video! You are so beautiful, I never think you need all your makeup, but I love seeing the products you use right now and they are actually really affordable, so I was excited about that too!

    I’m looking into what my future (1st due in August) will be with littles, because I don’t want to be carrying around a big diaper bag either through the streets and public transit of Chicago, so I’m grateful for tips on what’s in your ideal bag tip, too.

    Happy belated bday!

    1. Of course!!! Thank you so much for watching it!! I am so happy you liked it 🙂 And that is so exciting!! Congrats to you! And I love that idea for a post, thank you!! xo

    1. You’re the cutest!! Thank you so much!! I appreciate it 🙂

    1. Yay!! I love hearing that 🙂 Glad you love it too! Thanks for watching! xo

    1. Thank you!! That’s so nice of you! It really is so so good!! Totally try it out!

  64. Yes please to doing beauty favorites videos more often!! I like the idea of doing just 3-5 products so they don’t get too long and so that you can do them more often 🙂 I always like to see what makeup you’re wearing because I tend to pick out and like similar products (I wear the same color in Double Wear as you so I may try the No. 7 and save some money)!
    A skincare routine video would be great too! I have a lot of great skincare products but sometimes I don’t know what order to use them in. Also, products for keeping your blonde healthy and correctly toned.

    1. I definitely will!! Thanks for the feedback Jacy!! It’s always fun to try new products, so I totally know what you mean 🙂 And yes! Give it a try! I bet you will love it! Thanks for the suggestions!! xo

  65. I have actually never heard of this foundation so I will definitely have to try it! That is such a good price! I’d love to see a post on your favorite skin care products for both face and body. My skin is super sensitive and I am always looking for good products. 🙂

I was wondering if you could pleasee make a closet tour video and maybe another one showing your apartment, I don’t want to sound weird though haha I feel like I just did. Anyways I love how honest you are and reading your blog everyday just gets me really inspired.

    1. Oh my goodness wow thank you!! That is so nice of you. I appreciate that!! And thank you for the awesome suggestions!! Stay tuned for more videos!! xoxo
