Today I am going to write a little differently. I am going to review the products I used for my look today.

Before I start any makeup application I moisturize and prime. These two steps will improve the overall look of your skin and makeup. I cannot stress how important it is to love your skin and treat it well. Don’t skip these two steps!

Products for today:

  • Garnier SkinActive: This is a light moisturizer and is not oily. It provides all day hydration for your skin.Let’s Talk Moisture:
  • Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer: Goes on smoothly with no oily residual. Helps minimize the look of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps with the longevity of your foundation.Time to Prime
  • Smashbox Studio Skin: This is a liquid foundation that you can build upon. This foundation goes on beautifully and stays all day. Remember to use a sponge or brush for application.
  • Translucent loose powder: Translucent powder does not affect the colour of your foundation.
  • NYX Highlight and Contour Pro Pallet: This pallet rocks. If you want to add definition to your face you will want to use Highlight and Contour.
  • NYC Eyeliner (white): I use this in the inner bottom of my eyes.
  • NYC Lovatics by Demi Eyeshadow: Absolutely beautiful colours. I have found them comparable to Urban Decay Naked Pallet (which I love).
  • NYC CityProof 24HR Eyeshadow in East River: I use this to line the bottom of the eyes and in the corner and top corner of eyes.
  • NYC Liquid Eyeliner in Black: This is outstanding eyeliner. If you want precision for your wing/cat eye this product is a must.
  • Covergirl Cheekers in Deep Plum: Beautiful colour and gives long lasting colour.
  • OFRA Eyebrow Pencil: Smooth application and long lasting.
  • Crown Brush: I used the blush Brush and the Eyebrow brush to help with application today. Crown Brushes are wonderful. For brows on check try an eyebrow brush.
  • Tarte Lip Cream in Wonder: I love this colour and it has stay power!
  • Ardell Lashes: No 160 Black, these are my go to lashes.

I hope you enjoyed this post and found some helpful tips. When you look in the mirror see the beauty looking back at you.

Let’s Talk Moisture:

When you were younger did you think to moisturize your skin every night? I sure didn’t. My mom would always tell me to treat my skin kindly and moisturize as a teenager. I didn’t pay too much attention to that advice. As the years past I realized moisturizing your skin helped with the application of foundation. When your skin is soft and supple foundation will go on smoothly and evenly. Not to mention soft and supple skin helps combat wrinkles as you mature.

My grandmother had beautiful glowing skin, she told me her secret to her skin was cold cream every night and a lighter moisturizer in the morning. My mom followed her advice and I have followed the advice as well.

Every night I use Olay. I have found it is a bit too heavy for my skin for morning use, but for night use it is perfect. Lately I have been adding 2 to 3 drops of rose essential oil and I am very pleased with how my skin looks and feels in the morning. Rose oil helps balance moisture levels in the skin, reduces the appearance of imperfections, and promotes an even skin tone and healthy complexion not to mention it smells wonderful. You can also use 1 drop of Geranium essential oil to help with wrinkle reduction and help with acne.

My morning moisturize of choice currently is Garnier Ultra-Lift Miracle Wake-Up Cream. It is light and leaves the skin soft and hydrated. I really am pleased with the overall look and feel of my skin with this product. I am also pleased with how well my foundation applies since I have added this product to my morning routine.

I hope this has been helpful. Let me know your thoughts. Remember to pamper your skin and treat it lovingly.
