I love beauty products almost as much as I love fashion. A proper skin routine, and high quality merchandise are incredibly important for maintaining clear, healthy skin. This is not an area in which you want to scrimp on – research your skin type and read reviews from users before determining what might work best for you.
Everyone will have their own preference, but La Prairie is my go-to brand for nourishing my skin, which becomes the foundation for your makeup to be applied flawlessly. I have my daily ritual, which includes always removing any makeup and impurities before going to sleep! Never, ever skip that step. I’ve recently discovered a peel-off mask from More Beauty which has been so effective in stripping away dirt and blackheads. My skin feels squeaky clean afterwards, but it shouldn’t be used too often, and you should always hydrate after. As for cosmetics, my tried and true Manga mascara by L’Oreal and M.A.C. liner are always in my purse. Recently, I discovered a line of lipsticks by Crystal Hearts and have fallen in love with their rich and long-lasting pigments.
Last, but not least, the scent of a woman. I personally love perfumes by Dior, Ferragamo, and Jimmy Choo – they’re feminine yet not too floral or sickeningly sweet. Take your time choosing your scent, because it really defines you and should match your personality and personal style.
