Hi, Karen here with ‘what’s in my beauty bag’ :o)
When I’m buying beauty products, I have to look for two things…low cost and products that can be tolerated by my sensitive skin. I mean super sensitive! I think at one point I tried every make-up base our local discount store carried. So, I am more than happy to be able to share with you some of my favorite finds that are easy on your face and that won’t break your budget.
I always start my routine with a layer of moisturizer. My favorite at the moment is Purpose Moisture Lotion available at Wal-Mart, Target or drug store chains.
For my foundation I use Everyday Minerals Original Glo Formula available on-line. There are four foundation choices available for every type of skin. After trying another brand of mineral make up in the past I was really skeptical that this would work for me. But, I ordered a free sample ($5 for shipping) and was shocked when I ended up loving it. If you have dry skin like me, be sure and put a moisturizer on first. Also, the last thing I do is get my brush a tiny bit damp and brush lightly under my eyes to remove any powdery look.
For color on my face I use Everyday Minerals Cheek.
For my eyes I use Everyday Minerals eye color in Hot Chocolate,
And lastly, if I’m dressing up, a light, natural feeling lip color, Burt’s Bee’s Lip Shimmer.
I hope I’ve helped anyone else out there with super sensitive skin by giving you a little peak inside my make-up bag. Check back tomorrow for a fun hybrid post by Denise!
