All the makeup in the world is just going to be all the makeup in the world if you don’t take care of your skin! If you will take care of your skin now than in 10-20 years you will have the skin you deserve. If you decide not to take care of your skin than you will have the skin you deserve!! ooops but it is true! If you don’t want to take too much time that is ok. It really doesn’t have to take 10 minutes to wash your face. Find the right products that you can get the biggest bang for your buck, and the biggest bang for your TIME!! Who here wants GREAT skin! Ummm everyone should be raising your hand! LOL Who wants to take 20 min everyday to take care of your skin? Ummmm.. maybe not everyone. Find a great cleanser that is anti-aging. Find something that cleanses, PH balances, maybe even gently exfoliates. Multi-use and multi-purpose. I used to have BAD skin! I had acne all through high school and college and nothing really worked and nothing really lasted. I am telling you it makes a difference when you have good quality products that can change your skin! If you want to customize your skin care regimen let me know. If you want to choose something go for it. Make sure the products are noncomedogenic (it means it doesn’t clog your pores) and premium brand so they don’t put fillers in their products. Super important!
Your brows are the frame of your eyes just like your hair is the frame of your face! Don’t tweeze them all off. Don’t draw them in like a sharpie. Short feathery strokes!! I promise you will thank me in the long run!!
Not sure when I have had that last 🙂 Enjoy!! Ask if you have any questions! Making sure you shape your eyes with a matte midtone is really important. and depending on eye shape how much you highlight is important as well. If you have a hooded eye or prominent eye you need to make sure you push back the extra skin to give your eyes a more open and awake appearance. I will do different eye shapes later, but this is super important when applying eye shadow I think, and so many people skip that part and do all shimmer.
So something I joke with is that if you don’t exfoliate regularly it is like trying to hydrate cornflakes. Just picture that your dead skin is like cornflakes on top of your skin. It makes your skin look dull and lifeless. If you are moisturizing without exfoliating regularly you are missing the boat. You are missing the results of anti-aging products. You are missing out on how hydrated and soft your skin could be. You are missing out on how any products look on top of your skin. So if you wear any make up foundation, cheek color, bronzer, highlighters, etc they won’t look the same on your skin. They will look dry and chalky, and if you ever want to have a more “natural” look you want to make sure you exfoliate and moisturize.
I am a professional makeup artist and skin care specialist. I have been doing this for 17 years. I started as a poor college student and newly wed. I always had acne all through high school and college and finally got my skin cleared up, and than learned how to apply makeup. I have been trained by international makeup artist Robert Jones! I absolutely love enhancing women’s features. It’s not always about how much makeup you can wear. It’s finding what you want to enhance. How long you want to take to get that result, and than customizing your skin care and makeup routine to match that. I hope you learn a ton and if you ever want any extra help or customization let me know 🙂
