Good morning Beautiful!
The secret to good makeup is good skin! People always ask me how to have a flawless makeup application? It’s the way you love your skin! We all have different skin types so learning and finding out what works best for you is key!
I have combo skin, which means I have an oily tzone (nose mainly) the rest of my face is pretty dry. It’s hard to find what works best for my skin since it has 2 issues. I found that keeping a simple routine and sticking to it really improves my makeup most importantly my skin.
No matter your skin type you should moisturize. I think this is our #1 problem with our oily girls, they think why should I moisturize if I’m greasy already? I used to think like that. Trust me though the more you moisturize your skin the LESS OIL you will produce! I know the first thing we want to do is wash our face and get that oily feeling off our face! But you’re stripping your face from all its oils so your skin will send signals to produce MORE OIL since it feels all dry.
Moisturize more = less oily skin
DRINK TONS OF WATER! When you’re dehydrated the first place it shows is your skin and lips! (Now we don’t wanna be looking crusty do we? Girl bye!) Staying hydrated is a key component to amazing skin!
I love to leave my moisturizers and eye creams in the fridge! They stay super cold and chilly since they’re in a glass container. It feels amazing and soothing on my skin especially if I’m really tired! The cooling effect really wakes me up.
I stick to my ride or die Neutrogena Face Wash in Grapefruit. I’ve tried so many face washes and this is the only one that doesn’t over dry my skin and that I can afford if I run out. I love that it’s pink duh! An the scent, I like to wash my face with warm water at first then I apply the face wash and use my clarasonic to really deep clean my skin. I used to have bad hormonal chin acne and since I started using the clarasonic it really opened up my pores, I LOVE IT!
I aint even gonna lie I used to skip toner for YEARS, I didn’t know what it was for. Now I live by it! It really does help keep your skin clean, pores tight and keeps black heads at bay. Ive been using this one by Neutrogena for a little over 2 months now.

Eye cream is important! The skin around our eyes is super thin and will start to age fast if it’s not well taken care of. I wanted to start caring for my eyes now so I can still be slaying at the age of 55! I love Benefit Its Potent eye cream I feel like its just right amount of moisture and what I was looking for my needs. “Your eyes can’t keep a secret—they’re the first to show signs of age and stress.
