Top 5 Summer Skin Products to Have!

Summer is here!!! That means plenty of things: school's out, picnics, bar- b-ques, pedicures, maxi dresses and hot temperatures. The hot temperatures can make our skin act crazy, whether it's sun burn, oily skin or just plain hot and sticky skin. So, I thought of my top 5 summer skin products that I love to use in the summer to help your skin stay beautiful and healthy.

1. Moisturizer and SPF- Moisturizer is needed all year around. It helps your skin to stay hydrated. It protects the skin against premature aging like lines and wrinkles and it keeps your skin soft and glowing. If you don't moisturize your skin it will eventually start producing excess moisture in your skin by way of oil. Excess oil in the skin leads to breakouts and pimples. If you have oily skin in the summer (like I do) moisturizer is still needed but it's best to use an oil free moisturizer. A great moisturizer that I'm using now is The Body Shop's Vitamin E Moisture Cream $16.

SPF is equal…

Fun Blues and Greens Look

If you don't know by now -I love a bargain, just as much as the next person. I love good-quality, bargain makeup that I find at the drug stores. Some of my favorite drug store brands are: Cover Girl, Loreal, Milani and Wet n Wild. This is a fun blue and green look that I did using ALL drug store brand makeup.



The products that I used are:

EYES

-NYX Jumbo Milk pencil as a white base
-Milani Beach Sand as the highlight color
-Cover Girl Crystal Waters Eye quad
-I used the green color in my inner eye lid
-The medium blue color on the outer half of my lid
-The darker blue color in my crease area
-I used the Wet n Wild liquid eyeliner in blue

Not pictured is the Elf brow kit in dark that I used for my brows.

I'm going to have more detailed picture looks as well as more product reviews in the next month in addition to my other blog posts :)

Good News!!!!!

I'm proud to announce that I now have an official makeup website. I created the website through Webs.com. My website features more information about me as a makeup artist, my rates, frequently asked question, photo gallery and information about my booking process for clients. It was designed specifically for clients and advertising purposes. Click here to view it.
I'm glad to find a free website tool that enabled me to design a website because it gives a more professional appearance to my clients.

ELF's Waterproof Eyeliner Pen (Review)

What Elf says "Get no smudge with no-budge eyeliner, which creates a fabulous and fresh look of precision that lasts for hours. The smooth pen applicator easily glides on color for very fine to bold lines for effortless beauty."


What I say: I raved about this pen in my previous post but I LOVE this pen! It does everything the description says it does. It doesn't run like most liquid liners and even though it's waterproof it's easy to remove off your eyes at the end of the day. Everyone should have this eyeliner pen. It's easy to create lines or a winged out liner if you choose. It's $1.00 from Elf. It comes in black, coffee, midnight, ash and plum. I will be placing an order for all shades. Below is a picture of a look I did using the pen.
