THE DAILY ROUGE: TOP 5 SKINCARE FAVES!
It’s no secret, your makeup won’t look flawless, if your canvas isn’t primed. I have been using basic skincare since I was in my teens! No matter what your budget or skin type, there are a few easy go-to products everyone can slather on. Your genes, lifestyle, and water intake all play a role, but the good LORT gave you an amazing organ and it is our job to take care of it. I don’t know about you, but my skin stays thirsty y’all, especially under my eyes. I don’t have time to get facials every week, although in my future fabulous life I will, along with a professional live in dog trainer, but that is a different story… here’s a few of my skin care staples!
1) PERFECTLY POSH: MOISTURIZE 911
MY FAVE GO-TO LIGHTWEIGHT DAYTIME MOISTURIZER! NON-GREASY, PERFECT FOR UNDERNEATH MAKEUP, AND IT SMELLS AMAZING! DO YALL REMEMBER THOSE “ORANGE JULIUS” SMOOTHIES AT THE OLD SCHOOL FRIENDLY’S? OOOKKKKK, YES. ITS LIKE A SUMMER CITRUS SMOOTHIE FOR YOUR FACE.
2) MAC: FAST RESPONSE EYE CREAM
COFFEE FOR YOUR MORNING BAGS. THE FIRST THING I GRAB IN THE MORNING IS MY COFFEE, I AM NOT NICE OR CUTE WITHOUT IT. NOW IF SOMEONE COULD PLEASE INVENT A BUILT IN KEURIG FOR THE SHOWER THAT WOULD BE A REAL MONEY MAKER, BUT ANYWAY. THIS LIGHTWEIGHT EYE GEL IS COOLING, DE PUFFS, AND INSTANTLY TIGHTENS. KEEP ME IN THE FRIDGE AND ITS LIKE A SPA DAY COMPLETE WITH HAIR MASK, TOWEL WRAP AND CUCUMBERS (INSERT VISUAL) EVERY TIME YOU APPLY UNDER YOUR EYES.
3) DERMALOGICA DAILY MICROFOLIANT
SLOUGH OFF DRY DEAD SKIN WITH THIS GENTLE RICE AND OATMEAL BASED SCRUB. NO WONDER I LOVE IT, CARBS ARE MY LOVE LANGUAGE. FORREAL THOUGH, USING THIS SCRUB IN THE SHOWER EVERY MORNING KEEPS MY SKIN SMOOTH, LIKE BABY BOTTOM STATUS.
4)SHU UEMURA CLEANSING OIL
OK YALL KNOW I WEAR A FULL FACE OF MAKEUP, ALL DAY EVERYDAY. NO, I DO NOT “WAKE UP LIKE THIS” BECAUSE REMOVING MY MAKEUP BEFORE BED IS JUST AS IMPORTANT TO ME. I NEED LIKE POWERFUL LIQUID DAWN, YOU KNOW THOSE COMMERCIALS THAT CLEAN OFF THE CUTE TINY YELLOW BABY DUCKS COVERED IN BLACK OIL? THATS ME. I WAS SO SCARED OF CLEANSING MY SKIN WITH AN OIL, BUT AFTER MY FIRST TIME TRYING IT WHILE WORKING FOR SHU IN NEW YORK CITY, I WAS IN LOVE. OIL CUTS OIL, WITHOUT STRIPPING YOUR SKIN LIKE SOAP.
5)FRESH LIP SUGAR SCRUB
OK ITS ABOUT TO GET REAL UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL…SORRY MOM AND DAD. IT TOOK KYLE 2 LONG MONTHS AFTER WE STARTED DATING TO KISS ME! PERHAPS MY LIPS WERE CRUSTY OR NOT PILLOWY LIKE IN THE MOVIES, SIKE! JK HE IS A TOTAL DREAM BOAT GENTLEMAN!! BUT FORREAL I KNEW WITHIN THE FIRST HOUR I WAS GOING TO MARRY THAT MAN. I CAME HOME AFTER OUR FIRST (3 HOUR LONG) DATE AT STARBUCKS AND RAN TO MY MOM AND WAS LIKE UMMMM MOM I AM DEEP TROUBLE!!! I SCRUBBED WITH THIS AMAZING LIP EXFOLIANT EVERY WEEK JUST DREAMING OF A KISS FROM MY PRINCE! F-I-N-A-L-L-Y.
