Hello Michelle! ^^ I was wondering if you could please recommend me a long lasting drugstore foundation w/o SPF in it for Prom? :3 Thanks! <3

Hi :)

Try the Maybelline Superstay 24 Hr foundation! It’s on the liquidy side which makes it more light weight but you can still get a more full coverage finish by adding another layer. Long lasting, beautiful satin finish but no SPF so no white face. Great for prom!

The new Rimmel Stay Matte Mousse foundation is great as well! No SPF and has more of a matte finish, rather than satin like the Superstay.

You might also want to try a primer like the Rimmel Stay Matte primer to help keep your makeup on all night. You can get a few free samples of primers from Sephora, Nordstrom, etc to test out before prom if you don’t know if you want to commit to buying a primer just yet :)

Hiiiii there:))) Well I'm getting older and want to prevent wrinkles as long as I can. So far I just remove my makeup put some Loreal Youth Code dark spot correcting serum (trying to get rid of acne marks) and moisturizer. I feel like a should add an eye cream, any recommendations? Thank you^-^

For anti aging a great skin care regimen would have a serumnight cream and/or an eye cream. You don’t need all these skin care products of course, but having one, two or all would be ideal :)

For your 20’s and early 30’s a rich face cream and eye cream would be fine. Exfoliating is important at any age for smooth, flawless skin. Check out my post all about exfoliating here. I’d suggest adding an anti aging serum later on into your skin care routine!

Seems like you already use a moisturizer but If you aren’t already I’d suggest using a thick, cream like moisturizer in the night time! Sometimes a more light weight moisturizer won’t give your skin all the moisture it needs. The more hydrated your skin is, the less likely your skin will loose elasticity and form wrinkles. A more brightening face cream would be best to keep your skin looking young and fresh!

 Try face creams like

  • St Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer ($6)
  • Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Sleeping Facial ($42)
  • Origins High Potency Night A Mins Mineral Enriched Renewal Cream ($39)

Since you’re still pretty young you don’t need an eye cream thats too intense with potent ingredients and wrinkle fighting properties. A moisturizing, brightening eye cream would be best to keep the under eye area cared for to prevent wrinkles but not necessarily fighting them just yet.

Some eye creams i’d recommend are 

  • Tarte Maracuja C Brightener Eye Treatment ($38)
  • Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream ($30)
  • Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream ($30)

They have acrylic makeup holders/storage things on haute look today!

Recently Pink Swoon was discontinued (heartbreaking) and Peony Petal is a very similar dupe! Just an FYI for all the Pink Swoon lovers like me :)
