My Favorite BB & CC Creams

In my recent video, Everyday Natural Makeup Tutorial, I talked about my love for BB and CC creams.  I asked if y’all would want to see a video about different BB and CC creams that are currently available, and which ones I personally love, and the response was an overwhelming yes!  I filmed my Favorite BB & CC Creams + First Impressions.

 

I wanted to put all of the products I talked about in this video in one place for you to see.  Several of these products are brand new to me before this video, so I’m giving you my unbiased first impression.

One mistake I’d like to point out on my behalf is regarding the L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion.  I mistakenly assumed it was a BB product because of the cushion design, which I was (obviously) incorrect about.  It is actually a sheer to medium coverage foundation.  This explains my explanation about heavy coverage/application.  Now knowing that it is a foundation, I’m even less fond of this particular foundation because of the application method.  I find that the sponge just pushes around the product.  I personally would apply this foundation with a damp beautyblender.  Just my two cents!  Also, I’d like to clarify, I’m normally a huge fan of L’Oreal products so this is just one product of theirs that isn’t my absolute favorite.

7 Ways to Pamper your Skin

I often say that you only have one chance to take care of your skin.  Too many of us wait until we see signs of aging before we actually do something about it.  Can you imagine how beautiful our skin would be if we invested into it before we saw tell-tale signs of damage?

My mom and Mawmaw preached skincare to me my whole life.  Mawmaw stayed on me about keeping my face covered when I’m in the sun.  Man, I wish I’d listened to her!  Instead, I cooked myself in tanning beds and laid in the sun every single chance I got.  I’m not sure why being tan was so important to me, but I’d give anything to hop in a time machine and undo all that sun damage.

Now that the sun damage is there, I’m constantly researching and finding ways to prevent further damage and keep my skin looking fresh.  Let’s talk about some ways that any woman can begin investing into her skin.

7 Ways to Pamper Your Skin:

  1. Drink water.  Are you drinking half your body weight in ounces of water daily?  Water consumption helps to rid the body and skin of toxins.  I personally find that my skin is clearer, brighter and better hydrated when I’m drinking enough water throughout the day.
  2. Get adequate rest.  When I’m tired, my skin is usually the first thing to betray me.  After a good night’s sleep, my skin looks brighter, fuller and my dark circles are less obvious.  Beauty sleep is a real thing!
  3. Visit the dermatologist.  Stay on top of your skin medically.  I go to the dermatologist at least once a year to do mole checks and ensure that all of my skin concerns are being addressed.
  4. Always remove your makeup.  Repeat after me…  I will not go to bed with my makeup on no matter how tired I am.  This is the #1 beautiful skin rule!
  5. Watch what you put into your body.  I’m a big believer that what you put into your body shows in your skin.  Consider adding supplements to your regimen that will benefit your skin.
  6. Exfoliate.  This is one of my biggest tips.  So many women forget to add exfoliation to their skincare regimen.  You need to regularly remove your dead skin.  I love using REN Skincare’s Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask which contains Mexican Papaya that helps to exfoliate my skin.  This 10-minute mask brightens and smooths my skin, while removing dead skin cells.  It helps to diminish dark spots and acne scars while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  After use, I noticed my skin was softer to the touch while looking brighter and healthier.
  7. Keep your skin moisturized.  Dry skin not only appears dull, but also appears older in my opinion.  Using the proper products to keep your skin moisturized helps to create the appearance of more youthful skin.  REN Skincare’s Radiance Perfection Serum is a great addition to your skincare regimen before you apply moisturizer.  This radiance serum will help to look more energized, radiant and healthy.  It also helps to even out your skin tone.

Tutorial: Natural Everyday Makeup Look

I’ve been playing in makeup since I was four years old.  With all of the makeup in my collection, you would think that I have a different makeup look for every day of the week, and I probably do.  Here’s the thing: when you get comfortable with a certain look or product, you tend to stick to it…  Even when you have a ton of makeup like I do, lol.  Every woman I know has their go-to everyday makeup look.  Some want to look more glam and others want to look more natural.

When I think of everyday makeup, I think of looking like a better version of yourself.  Fresh, clear skin with soft, rosy cheeks.  My focus is on my lashes and lips.  Today’s video is about my everyday natural makeup look.  Essentially, it’s my “No makeup, makeup look.”  I’m taking you step by step through this routine and showing you each product I use on an everyday basis.

Just a head’s up…  Multiple products that I use in this video are ON SALE!  Check out the makeup list below to see which items you should snag for a weekend deal!
