TIPS FOR A FRESH-FACED GLOWING LOOK


 I get complimented most often on two things: my hair & my skin. I get lots of questions about how I keep my skin glowing and fresh, so I thought I'd write a quick blurb on the face situation.
  1. It all starts from within - I am super prone to breakouts/blackheads/whiteheads/etc. so it is really  important that I eat well, drink lots of water, supplement my diet as needed, and get at least 7 hours of sleep every night.
  2. Skin care - I actually don't use a face wash, instead I opt for a clean face cloth and water. Once a week I exfoliate with baking soda and then put on honey as face mask for about 3 minutes. I use a moisturizer with SPF and sometimes I use eye cream or a night cream. Recently I've started using a natural astringent to help when I feel my face is super oily. 
  3. Make-up - I am a big fan of a natural glow, minimal look. My 5 must haves are:
  • Groomed brows - courtesy of my awesome eyebrow lady & a good brow pencil
  • Concealer - I have a trio concealer with a peach/salmon color, a super light yellow, and one that matches my skin color. I use the peach/salmon to neutralize any under-eye darkness, the yellow as a highlight on the top of my cheekbones, my brow bone, and the bridge of my nose, and finally I use the skin color to conceal any spots or blemishes.
  • Loose powder - this helps to keep my concealer in place and minimize any shine on my face. 
  • Bronzer/Blush - I use these two interchangeably - sometimes alone, sometimes together. Either way, I try to only use as much as I need.
  • Lip balm - Lately I've been getting into the whole bold lip thing, but on most days you would find me rocking a natural lip.
So there you have it, this is my simple, fresh-face, glowy everyday look. It is a mix of healthy skin and some outside tricks!
