For the past few months, I’ve been very diligent about not spending money on makeup, because I have enough. Even after I ran out of my holy grail, kind pricey MUFE foundation, I resisted the urge to replenish my stash. Instead, I pulled out all of my foundation and wore those instead. Thankfully, the current foundations I’ve been using are staple ones.
I’ve been saving money and space with these foundations, which is great. Keep reading to see the current foundations I have in rotation.
I have to admit that it’s very upsetting that some of my fellow women of color still don’t use sunscreen. Although skin cancer is more prevalent in Caucasians, the sun is unbiased when it comes to damaging skin. Sunscreen for brown skin is very important.
For the most part, most people of color either think they don’t need sunscreen, which is untrue. Then there are those who don’t wear sunscreen, because it created a white hue that makes them look “ashy”, which is never cute. Luckily, this is no longer an issue. There are sunscreens on the market that protect you from the sun with a the white residue. I have round up some sunscreen options that will work for brown skin tones.
Currently, I’m still going through my phase of saving more money while spending less money. So far, so good. This new personal challenge involves every aspect of my life, including my beauty products. With the exclusion of mandatory needs such as shampoo, I haven’t bought any new make-up and beauty products in a minute. However, there are so many new beauty products out there that I’m low-key dying to try.
Although, at times, I want to try everything, I have to be a good girl. So, I’ve broken it down to 5 beauty products that recently came out or are coming out soon that I’m dying to try. Keep reading to see the ones that made the cut.
Although summer just began, I’ve already developed and have been using my summer skincare routine. This heat and humidity has already showed up and out.
The older I’ve gotten, the more my skin changes. In my teens and early 20’s, my skin was just oily. In my 20s, my skin was more combination/oily. Now, it depends on the season. In the fall, it’s normal/oily, during the winter, it’s dry/normal, and it’s normal to oily in spring. However, in the summer, my skin is just plan ol’ oily; no slash. So, I have to use products designed for oily skin. This is how I justify having over 5 different types of facial cleansers in my beauty cabinet. However, that’s another post for another day. Keep reading to see the products that are making up my morning summer skincare routine.
Yesterday, I mentioned that I overslept and had to rush to work without applying any makeup. I still can’t get over how I overslept, because it’s so not me. However, I omitted that I threw a few pieces of makeup into my bag to do my makeup at work. I’m so glad that I did, because those few pieces helped hide the that “rolled out of bed and straight to work” look. So, here are the list of my on-the-go makeup products that I throw in my purse when running late.
If you you’re interested in seeing what products I use when I’m running late and why, keep reading.
