I’m going to follow the lovely Keiko Lynn’s lead and start doing a Make-up Monday. Make-up is the finishing touch to an outfit. Whether it’s a full face or just some mascara and lip gloss, it is key (to me!).

It’s no secret that I love make-up (MAC particularly), I would say I have a collection of beauty products! My daily routine now is pretty minimal compared to how much I used to wear in my 20’s. I would wear full foundation and pretty intense eye make-up nearly every day. Nowadays, I wear minimal coverage on my face and neutral eye make-up. BB creams are all the craze right now, and for good reason! For daily use, BB creams can potentially replace the moisturizer and foundation in your routine. A BB cream is a tinted moisturizer with extra benefits. It contains SPF, disguises blemishes, and soothes and moisturizes skin—some versions even contain anti-aging properties! They’re great for those of you with oily skin, most BB creams cater to oily skin. I have pretty dry skin and found that the Smashbox BB cream didn’t work for my skin. I went to Sephora this weekend and consulted with one of the lovely ladies, and she suggested two for my skin type. The first one was Dior’s Hydra Life BB creme. At $56, it was a little out of my price range. The next product came from Dr. Jart+

Great for dry skin!

I used it for the first time yesterday, and let me tell you, I LOVE it! With the Smashbox BB cream, I felt like it just sat on top of my skin and made me look cakey. This product went on smoothly and blended right in and evened out my skin tone. A few products on top and voila!

Fresh faced!

Not the best quality pic since it’s from my iPhone, but you get the idea!  Here is a run down of the products I used on my face:

Get the look: Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Dark Circle Corrector + Concealer, MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Medium, MAC Mineralized Blush in Dainty, MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Lingering, Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes! Waterproof Mascara, Maybelline Fit Me Bronzer in Light Bronze

I’m really excited about adding this new feature on my blog.  If you have any requests or questions, let me know, I’d be happy to do a post!

xoxo
