Spring is here and summer closing is coming fast and as the weather gets warmer, it is a perfect time to pair down our beauty routines. So, here are my 5 beauty must-haves to take you from spring through summer…. Actually, they are great favorites for all-year round use.
1 Facial Cleansing Cloths/Makeup Removers are a must. They are perfect for removing make-up, or just giving your face a freshening up on a hot day. The Equate brand from Wal-Mart is my favorite for the value (2 packs of 30 for half the price of other brands). These alcohol-free, hypoallergenic makeup removing facial towelettes contain chamomile, vitamin E, and triple tea, which rejuvenate your skin. And they don’t leave your face feeling dry and tight.
2 Brighten and protect your skin with a BB Cream. I like the Maybelline brand because It not only blurs imperfections, but it also brightens and evens your skin tone with sheer coverage like a tinted moisturizer. With SPF 30 protection, the Maybelline BB Cream also hydrates, enhances and protects your skin from the harsh rays of the sun. BB cream is skincare and makeup all in one step, which is ideal for those on the go.
3 I think eye cream is a must and one of my favorites is Murad’s Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for eyes. This super-hydrating cream infuses the delicate eye area with moisture for immediate and long term relief from dryness and Maintains optimal moisture levels for about 8 hours and is gentle enough for sensitive skin.
4 Tinted lip stain is my new mainstay. It gives a nice and long lasting color without being sticky.There are lots of brands to choose from, I like the Maybelline Super Stay 10.
5 My last must have are oil blotting papers.These sheets instantly absorb oil and transforms shiny skin into matte perfection. I love the Elf brand sheets for their value and soothing green tea extract.
Let me know what you think….. Cheers, Val
