Special occasion prep & how to get glowing skin
Special occasions always seem to be super stressful. No matter how hard you try something always seems to go wrong, at least for me.
Whether it’s a wedding day, photo session or a hot date your skin can cause you more grief than anything.
If you are worried about breakouts and dry scaly skin and lips I highly suggest prepping your skin before the big event, it can make the world of difference.
Today I am excited to share some of my favorite go to products to make sure my skin is moisturized plump and radiant 🙂
First up is cleanser….
Having a great cleanser is a huge deal. I have tried a million and a half cleansers from drugstore to high end luxury products and after a lot of trial and error I finally found something I will stick with. Oil cleansers have always been some of my favorites but I always end up taking them back because they leave my face feeling oily and greasy which I am NOT into. This cleanser from Nature Republic is the bomb! It’s great for all skin types and breaks down all your makeup with ease. It does it’s job and leaves skin feeling fresh and clean instead of heavy and oily. You can find it here —> Face Cleanser
Moisture is KEY!
A huge key in getting your makeup to go on smoothly and stay all day is moisture. If your skin is dry your makeup can look patchy and uneven. I am a HUGE fan of sheet masks. They are so convenient, just put them on and go on with your day, after about 20 minutes take it off and rub in the left over product, TA DA your done. Everyone should own the Garnier moisture bomb sheet mask. I have gone through SO many masks and this one is amazing. It’s affordable and leaves my skin feeling as fresh and soft as a babies bum. Ha ha don’t mind my analogy but I just had a baby so I have been reminded of just how smooth baby bums are lol.
The mask is infused with Hyaluronic Acid which locks in moisture for 24 hrs and leaves your face more plump and radiant. Yes I know it sounds like a miracle, in my opinion it’s pretty close. I really love it and use them about once a week.
You can find these masks at Ulta, Walmart and most drug stores, but here is a link —> Sheet Mask
Next up is the lips
Seriously though cracked and dry lips will ruin any picture, kiss or day in general ha ha. Scrubbing your lips will ensure your lip products will go on smooth and last all day. There are a lot of scrubs out there but my favorite is from Lush. I know almost everyone in the world has heard of lush so it’s probably no surprise that it’s a favorite. Their company is so amazing. My favorite is the peppermint flavor. It leaves your breath smelling fresh and clean all while leaving your lips looking amazing! check it out and all the flavors here —> Lip Scrub
If you have a special event coming up I hope these tips and products help make sure you look and feel your best. Have a B.eautiful Monday everyone.
