I started Other Explorations to have a place to share my varied interests.  Here you’ll find me talking about beauty, cooking, home decor, and hopefully more.  Enjoy!

Beauty Posts: For reference, my best color matches are Estee Lauder Double Wear in the shades 5W1 Bronze and 5W2 Rich Caramel depending on the time of year. If you are more familiar with the MAC shade system I wear the studio fix powder plus foundation in C6 and C7 again depending on the time of year. My skin type is dry/sensitive most of the year and combination/sensitive in the summer. Please keep in mind when using my swatches for guidance that my hand is not the exact same color as my face and that at times I alter color settings in order to showcase the true color of the actual product featured. Also, keep in mind that differences in monitors/phone screens/tablet screens may alter the way a product looks. I find that nothing looks the same in a picture as it does in person, so I encourage you to go to the store and take a look at things for yourself.
