Ok I’ll admit it, I’m the girl that is always in full-face makeup. It’s how I roll, all the time. I guess it sort of goes along with my ‘always dressed up’ mantra. What can I say? I like a polished look. So sue me. But because I make a lot of effort to always look my best I’ve accumulated a lot of random beauty knowledge. Since this is my blog, I thought I would share. If this is a snore-fest, feel free to scroll on.
The Skin Trifecta:
The Base: OLAY Regenerating Serum: I’m not sure what it’s actually regenerating but it is unreal at making your skin look and feel like silk. I don’t know about you, but after I wash my face it stiffens up like sandpaper and even moisturizer is difficult to smooth on. So I use this serum as my numero uno product which sets the silky foundation for the moisturizer to layer on.
The Moisturizer: AVEENO SPF 100: Last Fall I noticed that my makeup was not going on as well as it had been over the summer. After investigative reporting, I finally figured out that during the summer I don’t wear moisturizer because my sunblock is moist enough. So I decided to continue this into Fall/Winter and what I found is that my skin actually looks better using this sunblock over a regular moisturizer. It’s not greasy and doesn’t smell like you’re at the beach (which is weird if you are sitting in your office). I put it on immediately following the Olay mentioned above and right before the foundation. Bonus points, I’m always protected from the sun. I mean how good is that?
The Foundation: MAYBELLINE DREAM LIQUID MOUSSE: Maybelline does the makeup for the DKNY show so I’ve tried a lot of their products. I apply Dream Liquid Mousse after the Aveeno SPF and it literally goes on like velvet. The result is a nude canvas. #Trust
Best part of all of the above, easy access. Try it. Let me know what you think @dkny
