I love my Saturday off. It usually involves me spending time with family or running errands. So I like to be comfortable. And I like my makeup to be kind of comfortable too. It’s not really a no makeup look but it’s a no-fuss look. Something I can throw on and know that I look put together without trying too hard.
So for skincare I have my current morning routine. I always start with my La Bella Figura barbary fig seed oil and then apply either argan oil or lately I’ve been trying LBF’s barbary fig renewal serum. Eye cream has been by Kahina which I’m testing out and will have a review up in another week or two. My SPF has been the same 100% Pure one I’ve been using forever. Last but not least we have lips and it’s my current favorite LBF la curacio. Not that I’m having a current love affair with LBF or anything…
My makeup for the day was simple and easy. I went with fresh skin thanks to Vapour Luminous Foundation (shade 115), and Illusionist concealer (shade 010). I followed up with Vapour Aura Multi-Use in Torch and a little rms living luminizer. I never leave the house without brows so I use my trusty Jane Iredale Bitty brow kit in blonde. Josie Maran mascara and Bite beauty lipstick in Fig and I was out the door.
Today was spent baking cookies with my mom and trying on new lipsticks!
I have some serious love for facial masks. Store bought or homemade I think that they are all awesome. They’re not only relaxing but a great way to “feed” your skin. This Kahina mask has been a total staple of mine since I received a rather large sample of it earlier this fall. It’s described on the website as a multi-tasking mask. One that detoxifies the skin, stimulates collagen, delivers antioxidants and exfoliates. This mask is a powerhouse filled with lovely argan oil, rhassoul clay (this clay is awesome see more info on it here),
extracts of pomegranate and acai, along with a great essential oil blend.
For me it’s been my go to for when my skin is misbehaving. Particularly when it’s breaking out. Seriously zits disappear overnight.
If something does that for me it’s a total keeper.
The texture of the mask is a nice whipped consistency, with the tiniest amount of scrub texture. And it has a nice earthy minty scent. I pop a thin layer all over and then leave it on anywhere from 10 minutes or longer. And BAM! skin is glowing and breakouts are taking a hike. Take that crazy hormonal skin! Since I’ve been using it regularly I’ve noticed a great improvement in my skin. It’s clearer, brighter and has fewer breakouts. I’ll be keeping this in my skincare routine from now until they stop making it. =)
Are masks a part of your skincare routine? What’s your favorite?
So I’m finally getting life back in order and finding some time to start blogging again. As to where I’ve been my work has been crazy busy and I had a terrible skin issue that I was trying to work out. Thankfully all that’s being settled and I’m back with exciting news.
I’ll post a review on my new Tata Harper Trio as well as the Kahina Giving Beauty Mask.
Also would you be interested in a video of me doing my normal morning makeup routine? Or video reviews of product? I’m getting a new computer that will have fancy new software for me to play around with so let me know.
Thanks for your patience while I get back up and running!
