You might want to aim for mineral powders because they are more finely milled and silky so they won’t accentuate any dry patches. I love me a good natural looking powder/mineral foundation for the summer time :)
Bare Minerals Original Mineral Foundation. I LOVE this powder lately especially because my skin is more dry lately and this gives the most beautiful sheen it’s not matte/powdery like some powder foundations. I can get pretty full coverage out of this as well, even my roommate thought I was wearing a liquid foundation when I wear this. It’s a very silky powder that feels healthy and light on the skin!
Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Mineral Foundation. This powder foundation really sets and melts into the skin which makes it great for drier skin. You can get really good coverage out of this as well!
Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Powder. Also a very creamy, “hydrating” powder nothing too matte or powdery. Has about a light to medium coverage but it is buildable.
Try shades like
Loreal Fairest Nude
Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 03
Maybelline In The Buff Lipstick in Nude Lust
Hi! So, I'm still in high school, but I really want to become a makeup artist. I think it's my calling. However, I REALLY don't know where to start. I'm building a kit and a portfolio, but I don't really know what else there is for me to do!!
Check out my post on how to become a makeup artist here :)
Generally using a hair treatment/mask should be used about once a week or twice a month depending on how damaged your hair is. You could use it more often than that if your hair is pretty damaged but it can make your hair oily if used near the roots too often :)
You can make your own hair masks with many things!
- Mayonnaise (full of natural fats for shine and moisture)
- Olive oil (oils sink into the hair for instant shine and moisture)
- Egg yolk (protein for strong hair),
- Avocado (natural fats for shine and moisture)
- Coconut oil (light weight oil sinks into thirsty, dry strands)
You can choose one or a few to use at a time by mixing up your own little concoction. All these ingredients will soak up best if the ingredients are warm/room temperature so take any cold ingredients out of the fridge prior to using. Let them soak into your hair for a good amount of time, the longer the better!
My personal favorite hair masks that you can buy are
Macadamia Oil Deep Repair Hair Masque, by far my fav! Makes my hair healthy, shiny and soft. Been my go to hair repair mask for years. Probably my favorite hair care brand in general their leave in oil is also my go to hair oil/serum!
A great drugstore hair mask would have to be the Loreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm. A great affordable, repairing hair mask!
It depends what sort of eye cream you’re looking for really. Some are mainly just moisturizing and some have more potent anti aging ingredients or ingredients to fight under eye circles. You cant go wrong with a basic, hydrating eye cream because you mainly want to keep the area hydrated so it stays firm and supple as you age. Eye cream should be applied once or twice every day. I only use it at night :)
I think the most important thing to know is how to apply eye cream. Applying eye cream incorrectly can do more damage even though you’re using an eye cream! You want to apply eye cream very gently in dabbing, never rubbing or tugging, motions gently pressing the eye cream into the skin. Bring some of the eye cream up to the brow bone, this ensures that area stays moisturized and doesn’t sag as the years go on. Getting the crows feet on the side of the eyes is important too so you don’t want to miss that area. Don’t apply eye cream on your eye lids unless the eye cream says to do so, our eye lids naturally produce oil so that area is already moisturized.
As for eye creams I recommend a basic hydrating and brightening eye cream, a well hydrated under eye area will keep the skin around your eyes looking fresh and supple for years to come :)
