As promised, I’m delivering full-on beauty coverage for today’s Friday Five. Before I begin, I’ll leave an editor’s note that I am by no means an expert. In fact, I’d say I’m quite an amateur using the Internet to my advantage to learn a thing or two…and share with all of you!
A product I love :: I got this fancy, French water for Christmas last year in a mail gift exchange. It’s pretty packaging had me swooning, but then I sprayed it and found the magic was all inside. I use it in the morning to make my face slightly dewy before applying my make-up and in the evening after a work-out.
A product I’d like to love :: One of my recurring woes is not buying the products–that’s the easy part! It’s the actual application. So, I was pleased to find these are a thing: skin care sticks. Like spray-on sunscreen, it’s simpler and more likely to supply even coverage. I really like this rosy guy.
A switch-up in your routine :: Save yourself a CVS trip to replenish your shampoo supply. Cue conditioner-only power showers after the gym.
A product I’m over :: I’ve pretty much had it with my Venus razors. They cost and cut way too much. So, I’ll be taking a tip from the boys and Camille Styles team and grabbing a guy’s razor my next go-around. It’ll be the signature boys’ blade, the Gillette Mach3, which issupposedly sturdier, sharper and leave your legs silkier.
What I’m still learning :: A lot! Emily of Cupcakes & Cashmere opened my eyes to this magic elixir, so I was so happy to read the beauty mistakes she made in her 20s. I’m figuring out the brow thing, need to let lipsticks into my life, and properly blend foundation into my neck.
The amount of product out there is overwhelming, and I think the overall mantra when it comes to make-up and beauty really is less is more. Most guys would agree. So, enjoy the process and learn as you go. Baby steps on the beauty front, mes cheries!
