As a makeup artist, one of the questions that my clients constantly asks me is, “how do you always get your makeup to look so GOOD?” Surprisingly, it’s not a high end, luxury foundation, a rich, creamy primer or even an expensive concealer or eyeshadow palette… it’s my skin care routine.
Skin care is so important because it begins from the inside and allows the face and makeup on top to shine outward. I always tell my clients that before you can achieve amazing makeup application, you have to focus on making sure you have amazing skin. For those that need an extra boost, there are amazing products out there that will allow you to look refreshed, radiant and absolutely beautiful (even while you’re sleeping at night). Here are a few Everything Girls Love favorites:
Cleanser: Clean and Clear Night Relaxing Deep Cleaning Face Wash
This exfoliating cleaner contains deep sea minerals and sea kelp extract that helps to nourish and purify the skin. Its oil free, non-pore clogging formula cleans deep to effectively wash away daily build-up-like dirt, oil and bacteria, leaving you with vibrant, healthy looking skin.
Toner: Simple ‘Kind to Skin’ Facial Toner
This 100 percent alcohol-free, colorless toner is one of my favorites as it suits a variety of different skin types: sensitive, normal, dry or combination. This product helps to removes any traces of makeup left over after cleansing while clarifying and refreshing the skin at the same time. The chamomile and witch hazel ingredients make this toner one of the best in the beauty industry and it’s perfect for use before moisturizing. Apply it with a cotton ball and press the toner gently into the skin to create the appearance of smaller, tightened pores and a softer, supple appearance.
Moisturizer: Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Night Cream
Burt’s Bees continues to prove why it is a leader in skin care, especially with the creation of this hydrating, emollient night cream. It is filled with the remarkable, moisturizing botanical, clary sage, and leaves the skin soft, supple and completely revitalized. This light and fresh cream is great for dry and combination skin. Plus, there are no parabens, phthalates or petrolatum and pores, fine lines and wrinkles will diminish while you sleep.
