No matter what season having a flawless face is always in style! Here are the products that I rely on to fake a fresh, clean complexion.
#1. DDF Weightless Defense Oil-Free Hydrator SPF 45 – Despite the high price, I am addicted to this moisturizer! It absorbs almost instantly on my skin and feels amazingly light — even under makeup! At SPF 45, this moisturizer also has major sun protection benefits as well.
#2. Clinique All About Eyes – As I entered my late twenties, I started becoming aware of “old people problems” such as eye puffiness, fine lines, and darkness. All About Eyes promises to aid all of that! Because eye tissue is a lot thinner than other skin on your body, I trust this product to moisturize my skin without clogging my pores. Placing this cream on my eyes is like a mini spa wake me up. It feels wonderful!
#3. Evian Mineral Water Spray – A part of me is laughing at myself for dropping eleven ducks on canned aerosol water but this water spray has become a daily addiction that I can’t live without. I have very sensitive, dry skin so a little spray in the afternoon instantly refreshes my skin and makes it feel hydrated. For a full tutorial on how to use this spray to prep, prime and set your makeup visit my friend Annie’s blog.
#4. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Working long days means I need to make sure that my makeup stays put for hours at a time. Laura Mercier’s primer ensures that my makeup is working double time with no paid time off! I like the fact that this primer has added vitamins A, C, and E added to give my skin that extra nutrition boost.
#5. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer - Believe the hype. This product consistently makes “Best of…” lists over and over again — and with good reason! It is a virtually foul proof way to ensure that your skin has a healthy, glowing and even looking complexion. I apply with my hands or with MAC’s #187 Duo Fibre brush.
#6. MAC Prep + Prime Eye – This impulse buy is now my holy grail to avoiding eye makeup from sliding all over the place which is not sexy. At all.
