Tips for a Flawless Complexion!
1) INVEST! in great products.
They will cost more but it’s your face. You can spend $100 on shoes but not more than $10 for something you’re putting on your face every day? You will not get that amazing skin you want with all drug store products.
2) MOISTURIZE! Every single morning.
Some of my favorites are Khiels Lightweight Moisture, Nars Luminous Moisture Cream, Mac Comfort Cream
3) REMOVE MAKEUP!
Every single night. The end of discussion.
If you have dry to combo skin, using a little coconut oil or Khiels Midnight Recovery Oil on skin overnight or even in the morning before applying makeup will keep your skin elasticity and soften/prevent lines!
If you have dry to combo skin using just a powder is doing nothing for you. Get a great liquid foundation. I absolutely swear by Armani Maestro foundation, YSL Touche Eclat, and Nars tinted moisturizer. They range from $40-60 but TOTALLY WORTH IT. I also would set any of them with MAC Mineral Powder. Unlike other powders it doesn’t leave a cakey look and blends throughout the day when your natural oils start coming through.
Buy a gentle exfoliator that doesn’t contain alcohol and use it at least once every two weeks but not more than once a week. I know a lot of people use St.Ives but my dermatologist says it’s absolutely the devil so I’d stay clear. I use MAC Volcanic Ash or SkinINC’s exfoliator.

Moisturize. Even out your complexion with liquid foundation first before applying any eyeshadow or lips. Use neutral shadows like rich browns and BLEND BLEND BLEND with everything!
Was a pleasure doing the amazing Jessica Stam’s #makeup this afternoon.
