Make-up and Your Skin


So sorry I have been gone! This week I want to talk about make up and what products I like to use for myself, and what I recommend for for different skin types. When wearing make up always remember to be yourself, and don’t try to put more on if thats not what you are comfortable with.

When I do my make up I always make sure to wear what feels and looks good on my face. Like so many other women I struggle with an oily T zone and dry cheeks. When I put my make up on I make sure to use a primer to help control the oil, but also help my cheeks become moisturized. Next I use an oil free base with full coverage, an then putting a powder in my T zone to help keep the oiliness at bay. I will then put on blush and highlighter. I don’t like to fully contour my face, because it is a lot of work and I don’t always feel it looks natural. I will then fill in my eyebrows and put on eye liner. Then I use a setting spray before I put on my mascara or else it tends to run. I like to keep my everyday make up simple and easy to do in a hurry. If I have more time I will add more eye make up.

For those of you who are very oily I recommend using all oil free products and also using lighter make up that doesn’t cake on to your face. When you have excess oil on your face it is important to wash your face twice a day to help remove the oil and dirt. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT use apple cider vinegar on your face to try and put your natural oils back in your face. This is a big no no in the beauty industry, and is not healthy for your face. I still recommend using a primer and powder to help keep the oil at bay. Another idea is to just use a primer and then a full coverage powder on your face so you font have to worry about your face breaking out from foundation.For those of you who have more of a dry face having products that have oil in them is not a bad thing. Just be careful to always wash it off at the end of the day to prevent break outs. I would recommend using a foundation and maybe a setting powder if you would like. I like the setting powder, because I personally don’t like feeling like I can just wipe off my make up.

If you guys have and questions or comment put them below and please follow my blog! Remember you are beautiful by just being yourself!
