Happy Monday, beautiful!
I often post about makeup and makeup application, but today I figured I’d switch it up a bit a talk about how to take off our mini masterpieces we create on our faces! This is an especially important topic for all my brides out there who are getting ready for their big day. The first step to a gorgeous makeup look is to have a clean canvas! Below, you will find a list and descriptions on my favorite skincare products that I use each and every day!
The F I R S T step to amazing skin is washing your face! My favorite face wash is the one-step facial cleanser by Philosophy. This product not only melts away all the makeup from your face, but it also tones and hydrates while doing so! This cleanser does a wonderful job of removing all my makeup after a long day and it never makes my skin feel dry. I recommend using this before bed and after waking up in the morning!
The next step is to apply some type of serum. My suggestion is applying something that contains Retinal because it helps with texture and fine lines on your face. Honestly, I will sometimes notice texture on my cheeks and forehead, but after about two nights of using the Redefine Intensive Renewing Serum from Rodan and Fields, it is completely gone! I can definitely notice a difference after a few nights of going without this skincare must-have!
The T H I R D step in my skincare routine includes applying a few drops of Tarte’s Maracuja Oil. I seriously cannot say enough good things about this oil! Since I have been using this regularly, my skin is more hydrated, the lines on my forehead aren’t as evident, and my makeup applies so much better! It’s seriously a miracle oil! I sometimes even apply it to my under eye area since that area tends to be super dry on me and it makes my concealer look so much more hydrating and flawless on my skin!
The F I N A L step is to add a good moisturizer to your face! I love the Moisturizing Skin Lotion by Clinique! I believe it really has helped strengthen my skin’s moisture barrier and helped my face stay hydrated after I apply makeup! I use this product before bed and after I have washed my face in the morning/before I apply makeup!
So there you have it! I have always been so overwhelmed by creating a good skincare routine since there are SO many products available, so I had to share since I’ve finally found my own personal “miracle system”! My skin type is more combination-dry, so if you are more oily, I encourage you to try out different skincare products until you find something that works great for you! As I get older each passing year, I start to notice more changes to my face, so it has really encouraged me to start taking care of my body and investing in good products that will help me in the long run! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!
