You may know that I like to learn about new skincare products and makeup. I can often be found looking up what new products are out there on the market, or what the new trends are.
I believe that if you take care of your skin, it will show. An important step is to find the right products (cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and an eye cream) that work for you and to make a routine of using them on a daily basis. From there you can add additional products, to target certain issues.
Don’t forget that with the changing of seasons, our skin changes too. The skincare products we used throughout the winter should be switched for lighter versions and our makeup (foundation or powder) may need to be swapped out for a slightly darker shade.
Recently I won a Mary Kay package with a local beauty consultant for a session with several of my friends. My sister and a colleague/good friend of mine enjoyed a great evening together learning about different Mary Kay products and what products would work best for each of our skin types. It was a hands-on experience, where we each had the opportunity to try a variety of products and ask any questions we had.
A unique experience was we got to try a charcoal mask, which none of us had used before. It was neat to feel and see it working. It was simple to remove with water and a washcloth. My skin felt and looked great afterwards. Next, we tried some day/night creams to feel the differences of each on our skin, followed by an eye cream.
Now that our skin was super clean, it was time to learn some makeup tricks. We were each provided with a liquid foundation to match our skin type and colour. I was amazed how easily it blended and perfect it looked (which is not always easy to find). Blush was added to give a bit of colour to my cheeks, followed by two shades of taupe/brown eyeshadow used on my eyes. I asked for something a bit more dramatic, rather than a swipe of one colour, which is what I normally do. It was topped off with a coat of black mascara and a swipe of a coral shade of lipstick. Voila! We left feeling and looking great and each of us purchased a few of the products used.
A special surprise was I was also the winner of a gift basket of goodies for my hands. This prize consisted of the Satin Hands products. These three products leave my hands feeling super smooth and luxurious and the white tea and citrus scent is subtle.
