Are you anti a full face of makeup? Do you prefer those finishing touches, details, and perfect skin techniques, instead? Then pay attention! Sometimes, focusing on your morning skincare routine, adding tinted moisturizer and swipe of lip color, is all you need to do. Here’s a few products to help you keep it simple and clean for spring.
Votre Vu Vu-On Rouge: I absolutely love Vu-On Rouge, a color accent for lips and face. Thanks to its ingredients —hydrating shea and exotic antioxidant-rich mango seed butters— this is good for you, in addition to going on smoothly and adding a dewy luster to your visage.
Votre Vu Belle Poudre: This naturally-based formula from Votre Vu sets and mattifies your skin, in addition to protecting, smoothing, and brightening the complexion.
Butter London Sheer Wisdom Lush Lip Oil: I’m obsessed. This lippie’s texture is everything. The formula instantly melts onto lips, saturating them with color. One swipe is all you need for color, shine, and hydration.
Paula’s Choice Resist Smoothing Primer Serum SPF 30: Meet your new favorite primer, which was designed for all skin types. It gives you a flawless canvas over which to apply your makeup, even if you are keeping it light and fresh.
Flower Ultimate 3-in-1 Blending Sponge: This is the best new beauty sponge and not just because of the affordable and attractive price. I like to add a little liquid foundation on the back of my hand to warm it up, then I dip the sponge into it, and stipple (press) it into the areas of the face that need it. You can keep your sponge in tip-top shape by washing it with a gentle dish soap or olive-based bar soap.
