Just like the clothes we consciously decide to put on everyday, makeup is a truly personal experience that almost every woman has a connection with. While I am drawn to a more simplistic approach to makeup (and by that I mean just foundation and mascara), I always tend to admire the work, effort and skill that goes into applying a full face of makeup whilst making sure that everything blends seamlessly.
One of my makeup woes which I struggled with for the longest time was finding a good quality, high street foundation that matches my skin tone without going ashy or settling into a cakey mess. I also needed something fuss free and that was easy to apply for mornings where I had lots to do or was running late for an appointment. Before my engagement in December last year, I made the conscious decision to take out a few hours of my day and dedicate it to finding a foundation that matches my skin perfectly which, to be frank, I never had much hope for – that is, until I found Bobbi Brown.
In an effort to not sound too dreary and start stressing about the fact that we are a few days away from March (which means I have just over a month until my wedding (yay!), I decided to fill today’s post with a few of the things I have been doing to help me feel good, look great and give me much needed, all round happy feeling.
For nearly a year now, I have been giving careful consideration to the kinds of products I use on my hair and finally, narrowed it down to a few essentials as well as one home DIY treatment. The products that have had a more noticible effect on my hair however, is from the CHI Luxury Black Seed Oil range by GlamIt Hot Hair and Beauty.
A little while ago, my go-to skin care brand, Avène, launched their new D-Pigment Range. I have been using these products religiously for the past 2 months and, coupled with my regular peels and treatments, noticed an improved difference in my skin tone and texture. I have written about the brand many times and have used at least one product a day from them since their launch and have never looked back. If you are struggling with an uneven skin tone, then this range is for you!
As many of you may know, I have regularly been going for facial treatments at Skin Body Renewal to help with my breakouts, pigmentation and scarring. These treatments vary between Dermapen, Laser Genesis, Radiance Peels, Azelan Peels and Photo-Dynamic Therapy. While I have been seeing a significant improvement in the tone and texture of my skin since doing these treatments, my post-procedure regime has definitely been an important factor in maintaining what the treatments aim to achieve. Read more below on the top 3 products I have been using to keep my skin calm, radiant and glowy after my treatments.
