Some cosmetic junkies wouldn’t consider makeup application without proper prepping and priming first. Facial Primer for me hasn’t always been an essential part of my regime however it is an important makeup application step since it can prolong the freshness of your foundation, fill in fine lines and pores, and just allow your overall makeup to last longer as it creates a solid base between your foundation and your face.
Choosing the best facial primer for your skin type can be a little confusing so it’s best to understand your skin type prior to choosing the proper primer for it.
Jump ahead for a brief guide to facial primers.
How’s your Monday treatin’ you? Mine is INSANE! Anyway…wanted to tell you I’m currently obssessed with The Skin Food Apple Vinegar Cleansing Gel. OMG Loves it!
I was kinda a little wary of trying this out as really Apple Vinegar? Vinegar isn’t something I wanted on my face….but no worries it’s actually incredible stuff.
I’ll never learn my lesson when it comes to Japanese cream foundations. I love them but they hate me.
Love Clover Marshmallow Fit Cream Foundation sounded incredible but sadly fails to work for me.
Such a chore isn’t it? But a necessary evil. If you aren’t SPF’ing yourself to death prior to heading out the door in the morning we can’t be friends anymore. SPF is essential at not only keeping your skin in good condition but also essential to your health.
But the moral of my ranting is that SPF is uncomfortable to wear. I have a rather intricate skincare regime and it seems like I use way too many products in the AM. Anti-aging serum, Vitamin C powder, SPF, Moisturizer, Toner, this, that, some of that, some of this….it’s too much!
Plus to add insult to injury in most cases SPF is rather thick so it makes my face feel oily or greasy and even really good ones end up feeling a tad uncomfortable in the long run.
If you have all similar rants you NEED Kao Bioré Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+ PA+++!
Although difficult to work with, I still adore loose mineral blushes. Bare Escentuals has SO many vibrant shades that I simply can’t say no to, I also pretty much dig all over the more bolder shades Aromaleigh and Medusa Cosmetics offers as well!
On a whim I purchased some IsaDora Mineral Blush Powder and now I’m totally obsessed with it.
