Skincare : Enhance Your Natural Beauty!

Skincare



When it comes to making ourselves look pretty we are all too quick to reach for that full coverage foundation or that smokey eye shadow palette. But what when it comes to our natural beauty? As a Beauty Blogger and Makeup Artist I love makeup and I love creating makeup looks for you however, everything all comes down to creating a perfect base first!

I don't know if has come with age but I feel pretty comfortable in my own skin and venturing out with no makeup on. I have become a huge fan of skincare and having soft glowing skin without having to pile on the makeup lets me be me everyday. One company which has this hands down is Glossier which is why they are the perfect inspiration for this skincare post. Glossier are all about skin first which is something I completely believe in, they have created a range of beauty products to help us enhance our natural beauty rather than cover it up. I think it is time to show off what we already have so I want to share with you my go to skincare products which give me the confidence and help my skin look its best!

First off a little information on my skin - I am very dry and sensitive and can sometimes become a little oily in the T-zone area.

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm - I use this morning and night to cleanse my face, I love this as it is so kind to the skin yet so effective for taking off makeup too. Nothing makes my skin feel as clean and fresh as this product it makes my skin feel and look so soft. It is the perfect way to start and end the day. 

Clarins Eye Contour Balm - Out of all the eye creams I have tried this is a real saviour. It is extremely light-weight and refreshing and I love how hydrating this is, my eyes look much more awake and feel so comfortable.

L'Oreal Skin Perfection Advanced correcting Serum - I use a serum before moisturiser as an extra boost for my skin and I can defiantly see a difference. This helps to tighten pores and to even and brighten skin tone. This adds such lovely glow to my skin and being naturally dry this makes me look so much healthier. It is also very hydrating which keeps my skin soft all day.

L'Oreal Skin Perfection Correcting Day Moisturiser - Having the same benefits as the serum this gives my skin that added dewy look. My skin feels glowing and much brighter and even in texture and tone too.

Crarins Radience Boots - This is my little secret weapon, a tanning oil which I mix into my serum or moisturiser which gives me an all year round natural summer glow. This has such a beautiful effect making your skin look like you are naturally sun kissed, I have gotten so many complements since using this. 

Lush Cupcake Face Mask - We all need that extra pamper every now and again so to keep my skin feeling and looking its best I use this mask about 3 times a week. It gives my skin that deep clean it needs and works wonders on any small blemishes I have.

So these are my go to skincare products for beautiful glowing skin. These have definitely given me confidence and with these by my side I am more than happy to go out looking and feeling radiant.

What would you pick?

  5. Looking after your skin is key, it is creating the canvas for the makeup if you choose to wear any. That gets way more important as we grow older.
    "Take the day off" is my favorite balm cleanser, too. I especially love that it is fragrance free.
