Show and Tell Tuesdays: BEAUTY
Mine has been slimmed down dramatically in the past 2 or 3 years honestly, I think it has partly to do with depression and no energy [can you say buzzkill?!]. Now when we are going out for something my beauty routine goes back to what it used to be but day-to-day it is reallllly short. Like 30 minutes maybe.
1. Shower- I have the hardest time with finding a shampoo/conditioner I like [I welcome any suggestions], I'm currently using Everstraight Brazilian Keratin Therapy shampoo & conditioner. I don't love it or hate it so I'll use it till empty and probably try something else!
John Frieda Daily Nourshing Spray, I told y'all in one of my first posts that it is one of my CAN'T live without items. It makes your hair so soft and healthy looking without making it oily [another problem I have]. I have to blow dry it and currently I don't have a volumizer but I need one. I've used L'oreal Paris Volume Filler and I do think it actually works.
3. Face- I've been washing my face with all Simple products because of how easy it is on my skin, I've put my skin through heck and back this past year with harsh chemicals and since I'm only using what the Derm suggested I've decided to take it easy with my washes. I'm using the scrub, the wash and the miceller water cleanser. I'm not happy with the moisturizer I use so when I find one I like I'll post it, the Derm recommend CeraVe.
I normally put a primer on that I've been using to get rid of redness but I don't really think it even works [ha! story of my life with products] and facial concealer which I do love because it is supposed to treat bumps while you wear it and it covers well. My under eyes are really dark too so I use Too Faced for under my eyes and during this summer I am wearing Marcelle BB Cream [its lighter weight for the hot months] and Too Faced Powder to get rid of shine. I top it off with mascara, I LOVEEE mascara so I have several favorites I use, my top two are Arbonne and Maybelline.
Okay, this is where things get real...I have a problem guys..my whole life I have HATED red lips or any color on my lips [it's just me, I think it looks great on everyone else] so I will admit it, I put concealer on my lips. Yikes! Do I think it's the most attractive thing ever? I don't know. I'm most comfortable with nude lips and I haven't been able to find a lipstick or gloss that does the same thing for me. So there, I do it everyday...color me ashamed. Honestly, if y'all have any tips or recommendations please holler at your girl.
So that's it y'all! It sounds way more complicated than it is for real! I have a new Wedding Wednesday coming tomorrow and boy, will I spit some truth on you!
