Back to make-up though. The most important step in your beauty routine starts with your skin care regimen. If you don’t have a great canvas to start with it’s a lot harder to paint the picture you are hoping to end up with. I have tried several different skin care routines in my life and over the past month I started using Rodan+Fields Reverse system.
Lets start with the basics — concealer and foundation.
I always first use Mary Kay’s concealer under my eyes and anywhere I need to cover a problem area (ie: zits). From there I use Mary Kay’s medium coverage foundation all over my face. After I let it sit for a minute or so, I top it off with Bare Minerals Original SPF foundation. Last but not least, I dust a little Bare Minerals Warmth over my forehead, nose, and cheeks. The bronzer can sometimes be a little overbearing so you have to be careful with how much you get on your brush.
Next up we have the cheeks – I have recently been using Sephora’s duo blush in Rose emotion and love it. It’s the perfect amount of pink/peach!
After I have all of the basics done, I move to my favorite part, eyes. Before putting anything on my eyes, I use Mary Kay’s eye primer. This makes the color stand out better and last longer. I also use an eyelash curler repeatedly to give a little “oomph” to those eyelashes desperately in need.
As far as eye color goes, I use all Mary Kay eye shadows. I first start with a light color (Crystalline) and put it over my entire lid. From there I take the purple (Iris) and place it right on the bone between my lid and lashes. Last but not least, I place coal in the outer corners and crease of my eyelid. This helps make them pop. As far as liner goes, Mary Kay’s Deep Brown eyeliner has been my go-to for years. I only line my bottom lash line and always go from outward in. This eyeliner never smears and lasts all day. To set the eyeliner I take my Coal eye shadow and run it over the liner. To make my eyes shine a little, I place the light color in the inner corner of my lid on the bottom.
And that concludes all of my favorite skin care and make-up products, forever and ever, amen.
Thank God for all of the above.
Now that’s a whole lot of awesome right there. The microdermabrasion paste is my absolute favorite. Happy winning!
