The Ins & Outs of January (and a little tip that might clear up your skin)Wednesday, February 02, 2011
Hey everyone! I feel like its been too long since I've done a real post. But I am back with many new ones coming up. Makeup looks anyone? I love doing tutorials. But first, it is time for Ins & Outs. As always..I have many Ins and hardly any outs. I was thinking of switching to doing Favorites posts, but I think it is important to share products that are not good with you, so you know what not to buy. So lets get started..
-MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Light Medium as foundation. I have been working on getting my skin fixed lately so I laid off the liquid foundation. I used to use the MSF Natural as a setting powder, which it works great for. But the coverage is so amazing, but still light, it works great as a light foundation. It does great at covering redness and blemishes, but not the best at covering freckles. I really don't need much coverage. I find that when I use a heavy coverage foundation, I get acne, then I need more foundation, and its just a bad cycle. So I have stopped using it, and eventually I do not need all the coverage when my skin clears up. Try it, it works! I have already seen a difference, no clogged pores!
-Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Liquid Tint in Peony. I love this gel blush!
-L'Oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense liquid liner
-Seche Vite Dry Fast Topcoat. I would put this in every favorites if I could! Pure amazing.
-Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser. This is so gentle and really evens out my complexion. This has helped clear up my skin.
-Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner. I used to use the Clear Pore Toner, which I liked, but I find that the alcohol ones dry my skin out too much. If you have oily skin, you could probably use it.
-Olay Active Hydrating Cream Original. No need for all those fancy face creams. This is plain and basic and works. I use it at night since it is thick, and no more dryness!
-Garnier Fructis Style Curl Sculpting Cream-Gel. I like to use this before mousse to shape my curls and make them soft. I could get away with just using this too if I want soft natural curls.
-Maybelline Stylish Smokes in Amethyst Smokes. I had a lot of hope for this because all the rave about the Smokes Quads. But the quality was not the best. I don't know if it was just the color that I got, but the lid color does not go on well and is not that pigmented. I do like this, but it is just not what I expected. I got this to do a purple smokey tutorial on, which I will still do, but just know it is not amazing, but okay.
I'd love to know what worked for you all and what didn't. Comment below!
