Makeup Transformation with Dermablend

Makeup Transformation Dermablend No Makeup before photo dermablend makeupOh joy, the moment when you share your bare face with the internet. Lol. I’m actually pretty excited to share my makeup transformation with you. And I don’t think it’s any surprise that I don’t wake up with flawless skin, pink cheeks and shimmery eyes. Does anyone?

My daily beauty routine typically involves a BB cream (or light foundation), blush, and mascara. I like to play with different lipstick colors but most of the time I use chapstick or gloss.

BUT, my makeup routine is completely different for special occasions, parties, weddings, and certain date nights. Like a lot of girls, I try to step it up and create a much more flawless face. The challenging thing is that my problem spots are tough to cover. I have acne scars on chin, a temple scar, nose bridge scar, and dark circles that require loads of traditional concealer.

I decided to try out Dermablend because every year we all attend so many special events. And wouldn’t it be awesome if we could show up looking flawless and feeling confident? Who wants to look back on those photos and be like, “oh yea… here’s me, my new husband, and my scar at our wedding”. Lol

I only had to use two products to create a clean and immaculate base! First, I applied Quick-Fix Concealer ($25) to cover my scars, blemishes and dark circles. I followed that up with an even coverage of Intense PowderCamo ($30) over my entire face (this provides buildable coverage so you can decide how much you need based on your skin). After that you can use your own blush and eyeshadow to finish off your picture perfect look!

I also want to point out how affordable these products are! They cost the same (or less) than makeup that doesn’t offer you high coverage, smudge resistant wear. Most products are also non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, fragrance free, ophthalmologist-tested, allergy tested, and dermatologist tested

On Friday, I’ll be showing you how well Dermablend works on tattoos and I’ll give you an up-close look at scar coverage! For now, you can stop by their site and check out all of their products: www. Dermablend.com

Have a great day and I’ll see you back here for Friday’s post!

Colorful Skirt & Flowy White Top

purple flower hair braidcasual pencil skirtHello again! Staring next week, I’m going to try and keep my blogging schedule consistent and post on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I just started a new job so a posting schedule will hopefully help me plan better around my new work hours.

In today’s post I’m sharing a colorful and casual outfit. The geometric skirt is from Nordstrom Rack. For awhile I had trouble wearing it because it seemed so businessy, like when I wore it here. My job doesn’t require typical “office attire” so I thought I might end up giving it away. But then, I put it on and started trying on a bunch of tops and found something that worked.

What do you think of the results?

tty soon!

Lavender Swing Top

I recently tried an a new blouse style, the halter swing top! It kept me cool but also looked dressier than a basic tank top. And guess what, it only cost $10 thanks to the clearance sale Express was having.

Unfortunately, Express is all sold out of these tops but I found a few similar items you can try if you’re interested in experimenting with this look.
