As the weather starts to get warmer I like to tweak my makeup and skincare a little. It will start to get very warm here in Hawaii so all of the products that I use must be able to stay put and look natural and not overdone. I’ve been watching these makeup tutorials on the Vogue YouTube channel, and granted most of them are super models who are half my age and are gorgeous without a stitch of makeup. But what I like about them is that I can see the current ways that makeup is being used and try to learn a thing or two that fit into my lifestyle.
Cetaphil Daily Hydrating Lotion This is a surprising moisturizer that I love during the warmer months. It’s for dry skin but the texture is extremely light and absorbs quickly. It doesn’t feel gloppy and is a good base for my sunscreen. There is also a version with sunscreen but I like to keep it separate.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray w/Aloe, Herbs, & Rosewater A spritz of this when I’m finished applying my makeup and a few times during the day feels cool and refreshing and in the heat of the summer I keep it in the fridge and it feels fantastic not only on my face but my arms also.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor I love the creamy formula and colors of this lipstick. The applicator is at an angle so it’s easy to apply and lasts a long time while staying put. If you wear nude lip colors all the time and want to try a little more color, these are great because they are matte and so a brighter color is a little more subtle than if you used a glossy finish.
Matrixyl Synthe 6 Serum & Coenzyme Q10 Serum by Timeless Skin Care are both wonderful serums that instantly absorb into your skin. I use a few drops of the Matrixyl in the evening and the Coenzyme in the morning before my moisturizer.
Do you have any spring favorite skincare or makeup that you use?
