Having the right powder and primer is one of the most essential steps in applying makeup on a daily basis. For women who wear makeup every day, you know how easily your skin becomes dry and cakey. Properly moisturizing along with priming the skin for application is the best thing you can do and on top of that, it can save you money. Makeup artist secret: we barely ever use super expensive foundation or bronzer, what we do is spend our money on is the primer, which can have the potential to turn any brand into high definition makeup. One of the newest products to hit shelves this fall is the Too Faced Primed and Poreless Pressed Powder ($30). It adjusts to any skin tone while minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. The powder is also very versatile, it can be worn alone or under and over foundation to prep skin, keep makeup in place, as well as control shine for a smooth and flawless finish.
I have just returned from Jamaica where I spent six days in paradise doing nothing but laying by the pool and swimming with dolphins. On top of being completely relaxed by the pool, I also treated myself to an amazing massage as well as a milk bath, which at first I was not too excited about because it didn’t sound too appealing, but I was never so happy to try something new. The bath left me feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and nourished. One of the most important things after being out in the sun or anything that can be harmful to your skin is to make sure it stays moisturized and nourished. Because I felt so amazing, I was determined to do some research and find a milk bath I could use at home.
The Elemis Skin Nourishing Milk Bath ($74) provides all the necessities you get from a spa treatment without the hassle of driving there and the damage to your bank account. The balancing formula is a special milk protein base, rick in vitamins, amino acids and minerals. It also consists of natural plant collagen from Japanese camellia oil and oat extract, which will leave your skin feeling silky. This bath is great for extremely dry skin and treating skin conditions. It will leave your skin feeling nourished and satin soft!
Normally when you hear the word anti-aging formula, the first thing you’re going to think of is a face or eye cream, not shampoo. I’d assume this because as someone who works in the beauty industry, that was the last thing that came to my mind, but to my surprise, shampoo is now going to be a product associated with anti-aging formulas thanks to companies like Caviar and the Anti-Aging Volume Shampoo. They aren’t the only company with such a product, but it’s the only one I’ve found that I would try because it combines two of my favorite things: rejuvenated hair and volume.
The shampoo features a very similar formula to that of an anti-aging cream. It attracts, retains and rebalances moisture while protecting the color and improving the overall dry and brittle hair. It’s formulated with Seasilk, Color Hold, and UVA/UVB protectants to shield from color fade, daily environmental stresses and future damages. The anti-aging aspect is composed of Caviar extract, Vitamin C and Cytokines for stronger, healthier and younger-looking locks. Although the anti-aging shampoo is more expensive than a normal shampoo you’d pick up at a drugstore, you’ll love the results.
