Natural beauty starts at the base. Whether you prefer full coverage or a lighter make up look, having smooth, hydrated skin is key for a photo finish application. There’s no one size fits all for skin care products, but there are plenty of variations to suit your needs. Once you identify what your skin type is, set aside a spa day to take care of your natural glow.
We love face masks! Make an appointment with your couch and try out one of the new lines of at home facials. These are cloth masks infused with botanicals and vitamins essential for every skin type. A green tea mask is fitting for acne-prone, irritated skin. A mask containing honey will nourish and add crucial moisture to sensitive, dry skin. What’s great about these is they are packed with ingredients to revive and balance without breaking the bank.
When you think of oils the last thing we want to involve is our face! While some oils can be bad for our skin, there are many essential oils which absorb quickly and can leave otherwise dry skin refreshed. Cleansing oils are becoming popular such as Lush 9 5o 5 Orchid Oil Lotion. Not only does it remove stubborn make up, but it doesn’t strip your skin like many cleansers. It smells amazing and adds vital moisture while you cleanse. We love Tarte’s Maracuja Oil as a supplemental product for dry skin. Applying at night allows your skin to regenerate without any greasiness. Containing vitamin C, oils even tone, balance hydration and leave us waking up with a fresh glow.
A photo ready application goes hand in hand with invisible pores. Our skin tends to get clogged from every day life, from make up to just touching our face without even thinking about it. Thankfully, pore minimizing products are tailored to hide these pesky problem areas so our make up application goes smoothly. Benefit Cosmetics carries a well known product called The POREfessional Face Primer. It works as a double agent: minimizing the appearance of pores while providing a smooth, lightweight base that can be paired under make up or on its own. This product is oil free and contains vitamin E to help minimize the look of pores over time and fight oil throughout your day and night.
Let your healthy skin speak for itself. The secret to a flawless make up application is your base, no matter what your skin type is a smooth, pore-free, hydrated complexion is possible. We love to treat ourselves with some of these remedies to the winter blues. The best part is these products can be used year round to banish even the biggest problem areas. Kick back and give yourself some pampering. When you’re ready for a night on the town, our make up experts will be ready!
