I often get asked what I use on my face, so I’m going to share with you the what, where, how and why in a three part series- beginning with the complexion, followed by the eyes and then the others.
Part 1: Complexion
Overall, I’m happy to say that my skin texture is smooth. However, I do have an uneven skin tone and dark under eye circles. I’ve developed the following regime to even out my skin tone and cover those dark circles. I first begin with moisturizer and sunscreen.
Where/How: A little all over the face with a kabuki brush
Why?: It’s great for oily skin with its matifying and non comedogenic properties (doesn’t clog pores)
Where/How:Using my fingers, I apply on areas that are a little darker such as my eyelids and my upper lip ( has become a little darker since threading)
Why?: It has medium coverage and is cost friendly- so I use this rather than the concealer below in areas I don’t need opaque coverage
Where/How: I pat it around my under eyes with my fingers. I have to move quick as it sets quick.
Why?: It has full, opaque coverage and does not move
Where/How: I use very, very little of this under my eyes with the accompanying sponge
Why?: To set the Make Up For Ever concealer and blending it in with the rest of my face
The key is using very little and layering if necessary! Being a makeup artist, the process is therapeutic and takes me 5 minutes. The products last me anywhere from 6 months to 1 year. Depending on the skill, budget, time and need, there’s a unique face regimen for everyone. If you have any questions about these products or your face regimen, send me an email!
