For those folks who love beauty products and also have an extensive collection, you know how hard it is sometimes to completely use up products. Reason being….you have a plethora of goods, and you are always buying new stuff, which makes it hard to use up any one thing. For the start of 2017, I thought about which products I wanted to focus on for the month and what I wanted to use up. So I decided why not focus on going through a few of my favorite things for my March Empties post.
I have about three Micellar Cleansers that I rotate between, and this is definitely one of them! Come on let’s face it Origins + Dr.Andrew Weil together has to be a good thing. I like it because it’s gentle on my skin due to it being alcohol-free but still manages to remove all the makeup, dirt, and grime of the day. The ingredients that make this micellar cleanser extra special is Dr. Weil’s signature skin-soothing Mega-Mushroom blend plus antioxidant-rich Berry Ferment. This one is perfect for all skin types.
NO.7 MAKEUP BRUSH CLEANER
I deep clean my makeup brushes every other week, but I do a quick clean on a daily with No. 7 Makeup Brush Cleaner. I once read where someone called it a dry shampoo for brushes which made me giggle because it’s so true. Just a few pumps of this product on a paper towel then sweep the brush across the paper towel to remove the makeup. Sweet and simple!
Let me just put it out there before I start telling you how much I love this sheet mask! I use sheet masks about 4 days out of the week. I have tried and still am trying different ones on the market, because all sheet mask are not created equal, and they all don’t perform the same duties. I have a favorite for firming, hydrating, glowing, moisturizing, hyperpigmentation, and I can go on and on, but I think you get my point. My must-have that brightens and evens my skin tone is the Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask! This supercharged brightening solution gets its swag from Echinacea GreenEnvy™ and purple broccoli extract, which delivers a powerful skin clarifying action, due to the varietal’s high level of antizymes. And just so you know… Antizymes support balanced melanin production levels to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Can we all say, “Melanin POPPIN” all day!
I prep my skin before makeup and finish my makeup with the lightweight MAC Prep + Prime Fix+! It takes my looks to the next level and leaves me with hours of hydration and a beautiful softness to my final looks. This spray is packed with vitamins and mineral, cucumber, green tea, and chamomile.
Bite Beauty is all about providing the best lip service around (wait that doesn’t sound right)! Lip Job? Lip Love? Well, this is not going as well as it did in my head, so I’m going to try it again. Bite Beauty has a large selection of amazing products for the lips. Their lip scrub keeps my lips smooth and kissable as I move from matte lipsticks to glosses.
This is another MAC product that gives me life. I use this powder to blur pores and set my foundation and balance out my concealer and contour on days I’m a little extra with the application! It leaves me with a natural satin finish.
Even though I have lots of foundations and several that I really love, the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Foundation will always be in my heart! This is just an overall great foundation. It’s medium to full coverage formula feels light on the face. I also love that it’s gel based formula never looks cakey on my skin.
