well hello there, dolls.
My name is Megan and I’m addicted to makeup & skincare. Sometimes I place an order from Sephora just to receive my three free samples because I LOVE trying new products. I’m totally a sucker for the whole Birchbox concept, but no- not a subscriber.
These are a few of my favorite makeup and skincare products …as in, I simply cannot go through existence without them. This is part one of, well, I don’t know how many.
1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10
Simply put: This is my all time favorite foundation. It does not make me oily, it does not make me dry. It looks natural, yet lasts all day. Magic in a bottle, I tell you.
This is a translucent finishing powder that sets your foundation/concealer, yet doesn’t look cakey. Another product that controls oil, yet doesn’t make my skin dry. This product does NOT leave my vanity drawer.
This is an antioxidant moisturizer that uses Vitamin C and African red tea to help to calm and soothe the skin as well as fight off environmental aggressors and free radical damage. Plus it’s a wrinkle repairing & fighting cream! It’s super hydrating, so I use this as my night cream. When I got very little sleep during our Radiothon event, I used this moisturizer to take my skin from dull, to bright and revitalized. Sounds cheesy, but it’s true.
I use the rich formula at night and the regular formula for day. It keeps my under-eye area completely moisturized and de-puffed. Definitely a staple for me!
more to come.
