Is The Ordinary Niacinamide Serum worth it?
The Ordinary is a skincare brand that is taking over the beauty market at affordable prices. After finishing the entire bottle of their niacinimide and zinc solution, I rate this product 3 stars! Niacinimide is a known chemical for acne scars and acne itself. Previously on my page, I reviewed Fourth Ray's niacinimide serum and RAVED about it. I saw my acne scars fading before my eyes, however the ordinary just doesn't do that for me. I would recommend the Fourth Ray niacinimide serum before this one, as it gave me much better results.

It's BB Cream Season!
Let's be honest... nobody wants to wear full coverage out in the sun when it's 90 degrees! Especially if you have oily skin, wearing a heavy foundation can feel gross and look gross. This BB cream from covergirl has six shades (mine is shade light/medium) and definitely has decent coverage while feeling lightweight and leaving the skin flawless! By the way, tip-apply bb cream with a brush not a sponge. It's not supposed to be full coverage. Some perks it has is that it's: -Oil Free -Won't clog pores -Suitable for sensitive skin -Lasts all day I've tested this product out on several occasions and all though it looks fabulous, sometimes I find it hard to blend because of streaks and it also causes my skin to breakout. Although this product claims to be suitable for sensitive skin, it didn't seem to work out. This Bb creme also doesn't contain any SPF but makes up for it with its cheap price of only $10.00 Drop your BB creme recommendations down below!!!💕💕

Sunscreen is an absolute necessity in EVERYBODY'S skincare routine, especially during summer when we are spending more time outside! Spf is found in lotions, foundations, facial mists, and are also sold separately. Investing in spf is defintely worth your money in the short and long term for your skin health. Andalou Naturals- This is the face cream(spf 18) that I use during the day. It uses fruit stem cell complexes that are great for anti aging, antioxidants, and are an anti-inflammatory.

This setting spray has a matte finish and an spf of 50!!! This doesn't cause any irritation in my skin and can even be applied without makeup underneath it. Sun Bum Cool Down Soothing Gel- Anyone with fair skin can tell you how much sunburn sucks! I use this to prevent my skin from peeling or even if I just spend a long time in the sun. This lotion in particular contains Vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant a known for reducing UV damage, and also Tea Tree Leaf Oil, which calms redness and inflammation. The aloe is great for moisturizing, acne, redness, inflammation, and burns in general.

6 Skincare Ingredient Combinations To Avoid

TIPS TO LOOK DECENT IN PHOTO ID’s✨
If you clicked on this, you’re probably like me and care what you look like in your id photos. You have your license with you for quite a bit so it makes sense to want it to look good. Here are some tips I used to take my photo that left results that I’m not embarrassed to show others when needed. LESS IS NOT MORE You always hear how less is more and that’s usually the case when you’re not being photographed. In pictures, lots of the makeup can be lost through the lens if it’s not exaggerated. Think false lashes and over lined lips to stand out. STICK TO NEUTRALS Today is not the day to try out bright colors and glitters. (Choose shades that compliment your natural skin tone. It is important to match your foundation and avoid using black shadow/ liners.) With bright colors you run the risk of becoming washed out with a color that does not suit you and glitter can create unwanted flashback mistakes, which takes me to my next point. BE PICKY WITH YOUR SETTING POWDER Nobody likes taking a picture and seeing that washed out white-cast all over their face from setting powder. To avoid this, simply stick to fine translucent powders such as the laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder . Powders that advertise ‘HD’ tend to create a flashback when photographed. CONTOUR/HIGHLIGHTING IS YOUR NEW BFF Remember those crazy contouring looks from 5 years ago? With photographing ID’s, those skills may come in handy. A photo is 2D so we want to bring more to the photo with these illusions. Choose a highlighter shade up to 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone and highlight the tops of the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, inner corner of the eye, and brow bone. With contouring, chose a neutral shade up to 3-4 shade darker than your skin tone and apply to the hollows of your cheeks, temples of the forehead, down the side of the nose, and finally the jawline. I recommend NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer for highlighting and KKW BEAUTY - Crème Contour & Highlight Sets for contouring.
KKW BEAUTY-Crème Contour & Highlight Sets
The best tinted moisturizer I’ve ever used!
The Beauty Counter Dew Skin tinted moisturizer is the perfect product if you want a nice dewy finish and not a heavy makeup look. It’s so easy to apply, I just use my fingers! And a 1.35 fl oz. size runs about $45. It’s currently on sale on their website by the way! It’s very light coverage but I find it to do a good job of concealing light pigmentation and just make your face look more awake. I apply it right after I cleanse and apply my eye cream and serum. You can just use it as a replacement for your moisturizer during the day. I’ve been using it for about 3 months now and would definitely purchase it again! I’m almost out of my container anyways since I use it daily. It doesn’t have a harsh smell and is very blendable. I use about 2 pumps for the whole face. I find makeup to stay on over it pretty well and it does last almost all day, even in humid conditions. Hope this reviews helps if you’ve been on the market for a good tinted moisturizer! xx #Beauty Counter - Dew Skin[products]#[FiveStars]
Get rid of acne overnight!!! New favs in 2020
New Acne-fighting favs, Life changing product!! Love love love these!!! The acne dots and dark spot brightening dots together, it’s a skin correcting power combo! If I could give these 6 stars I would. I have been using these as my secret weapon when I get a big pimple because it completely gets rid of the bacteria and helps the skin heal faster. Put these on at night after washing your face thoroughly and the next morning you will see a significant difference in your ache. These aren’t cheap I’ve tried other drugstore brands of the dots, but none of them work as well as these. My skin is sensitive and I don’t have any negative reactions to the dots. I 100% recommend these!

Unclogged those nasties! 🦠
Product: Mamonde Pore Clean Clay Mask 🤤 Application was a breeze! This multitasking wash-off clay mask absorbs excess oil, purifies and polishes without dehydrating skin. My skin definitely feels less oily after wash 💦 THIS MASK IS CRAZY GOOD. I don't wanna be TMI but I need to share my experiences with this one. As soon as I applied, left it on for 15-20 min and washed it off.. it sounds nasty but my pores started to unclog and like you can see the pull out all the oil (you can see it up close with a mirror) after that I used my facial vaccum to suck all the nasties out and they legit just came out. I was shook but after cleaning my face I saw how much justice it has done to my clogged pores. It did work for me, but we all know sometimes it doesn't work out for some people! If you're open to trying it, give it a shot! ✨
