Preparing for Perfection!

5 Mar


If you want your face to look flawless when you apply your make up you have to Prepare your skin.  If you are an artist you wouldn’t paint without a great canvas and great brushes.  Today I want to focus on your face as your canvas!  If you don’t prepare your skin before make up it won’t look as natural.  You need to make sure you even out the porosity of your skin.  The 5 most important things you need to do to your skin every morning and every night is Cleanse, Exfoliate, Freshen (Tone), Moisturize, and Protect.  Cleansing your skin with a great cleanser made specifically for your skin type is super important.  You also need to exfoliate with a mask or a cleanser that has beads in it.  Then freshen or tone your skin this balances out your PH level in your skin making sure it isn’t to alkaline or to acidic.  Click Here  Than you need to make sure you moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.  Ths helps with the porosity in your skin it helps with evening your skin.  Then you need to finish off your skin with protecting it you need atleast spf 30 but you also need to wear foundation.  Now I know some of you think you don’t want to clog your pores and that is why you need to use a product that is non-comedogenic.  You can also use a primer before your foundation!  I will be talking about that next week!  Didn’t use it for a long time started about a year ago and can’t stop!!  LOVE IT!  and LOVE FLAWLESS SKIN!!

Get out of a color RUT!!

25 Feb

Ok so I do agree that we get in a rut.  Some of us wear what we used to in high school for years and years.  Some of us wear what we did when we thought we looked the best in college.  Some people wear what they were told they should like cool colors or warm colors or autumn, spring, summer, winter colors.  🙂 haha I found a little snip of 5 easy steps to get out of a make up rut.  I agree with most of the steps 1. and 5 are the ones I have the most problem with just because many people with their skin tone those colors won’t look good on them.  For example orange and pale blue and pink.  So before you grab a new color odds are warm colors will look better they make you look younger.  Try a new warm copper color for eye shadow.  Or a warm neutral or coral lip color instead of ashy try warmer colors for your best bet.  But check out the article.
