Department/Position: Outside Sales Consultant for Kentucky
Skin Type: Combination/Acne Prone Skin
Skin Concern: Aging Skin
Skin Tone: Medium
Morning Skincare Routine: I start by cleansing my skin with Purifying Gel Cleanser. It’s perfect for my combination/acne prone skin because it has Salicylic Acid (a key ingredient for acne) which deeply cleanses my pores without stripping away natural moisture. I will alternate this with the Daily Polishing Cleanser which cleanses and exfoliates my skin. I try to exfoliate three times a week. I then take a Clear Complexion Pad, which is considered a toner for acne prone skin, and gently scrub my face. Next, I apply 15% Vitamin C which gives my skin the antioxidant protection to fight free radicals. I follow this with the B5 Hydration which has Hyaluronic Acid. It’s a great lightweight moisturizer and it helps plump the skin. I apply my favorite eye product, Cyto-luxe Eye Serum, which targets under eye puffiness, dark circles and fine lines. The final step in my morning skincare routine is Solar Shade SPF 50. It is an all physical mineral sunscreen which makes it perfect for my acne prone skin. Plus, it’s free of parabens, gluten, dyes, soy, nuts and fragrance!
Makeup Routine: I love makeup! And I love everything in the glo minerals line! Because I am acne prone, I start out with the Sheer Tint Illuminator for my face primer. I will then follow with either Luxe Liquid Foundation in almond (applied with my FAVORITE Luxe Foundation Brush) or Pressed Base in honey medium. I like to use Luxe in the winter when I am drier and I use the Pressed Base in the summer when I am oilier. I use different brushes depending on the coverage I want each day but I love to use the Texture Brush to apply my Pressed Base. I LOVE the Contour Kit because it slims my face and makes me look like I had a "face lift". I also use the Luxe Liquid Bright Concealer in sunburst to help with the darkness under my eyes and to camouflage the hollowness. I love that these concealers do not accentuate the lines under my eyes.
Moving on to cheeks and lips, I apply Blush in papaya (don't be scared of this color - it is not as bright as it looks). I love both the Suede Matte Crayons and the Cream Glaze Crayons and I alternate them daily depending on what I am wearing. I absolutely love the Cream Glaze Crayon in bloom! I also wear the Precise Micro Lipliners - they are my favorite!! I alternate between pale magenta and ambrosia rose. I always have a backstock of these!
My final step is a spritz of our Moist Hydration Mist. Minerals love water and this has Hyaluronic Acid which holds 1000 times its weight in water. Plus, it helps make your makeup transfer resistant and sweat resistant! This setting spray can be used throughout the day when you want your makeup to look fresh again or if you are traveling and need some hydration. I am now ready to take on my day!!
