I love makeup and can always find some new product to try when I enter Sephora or Blue Mercury. Over the years I have bought quite a few makeup purchases I later regretted. I have a bag of makeup in my closet that has barely been used, but I just can't seem to throw it out. I recently made a promise to myself that I would be smarter about my beauty purchases. Now that I've been wearing makeup for at least a decade, I have come to find my go-to looks and products that work best for me.
Today I'm going to talk about skin care.
First off, I wash with Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser. I've been using this face wash since I was in middle school and I love it. Either I'm lucky to be blessed with great skin with minimal acne or breakouts, or this product is miraculous. Either way, I love the fresh feel of this cleanser.
I decided a few years back that it's about time to start taking care of my skin for the future. I always put sunblock on my face when I'm on the beach or know I'll be in the sun. This I've been doing for years now, because I know the sun really can do long term damage. Honestly, I don't protect the rest of my skin as well as I should, but I'm crazy about my face.
I hate piling on makeup and have never worn foundation in my life. Instead, if I'm going to go out and want to add a bit more color and an even base to my skin, I'll use tinted moisturizer. I have two similar options from Laura Mercier. The regular and the illuminating which has a slight shimmer to it, perfect for a night out.
I will then add bronzer to set it. This one from Benefit is my favorite because it has absolutely no shimmer to it. Because I place it on all parts of my face I want color from my bronzer, not shine. I have other products to illuminate, highlight and glisten.
So that's it on my face. I will be posting more throughout the week on various looks, my makeup choices, and haircare.
