1,2,3 Make up routine!

Who doesn’t want to stay fresh and young looking?

Up till my thirties I was doing just fine, not many visible changes, life was good! Hitting my fourties was like a slap in the face; you wake up one day and suddenly you notice all those differences; sagging skin, tired eyes, those little lines around your mouth and eyes, and your neck feels like it has a life of its own! Well, unless you use botox or do something radical to your face (which I am not against at all, just don’t think I will ever do it), you learn to accept your changes and deal with it, or ignore it completely, like I do, because seriously who wants this headache?!

Eating healthy helps our skin, believe me, I am a walking living example. The Mediterranean diet is rich in vitamins, minerals, and a lot of antioxidants that work at keeping our skin healthy looking. The way we eat reflects on our face. That, and of course a little cosmetic help doesn’t hurt either! I am not going to give examples of brand names that you never heard of, or products that are way over our budget, I will just tell you what I use daily, and maybe you could share with us your secret?

I use drugstore products, easy to get, great price, and usually they meet my expectations!



This is what I use as a day cream, I’m not going to be a spokeswoman for L’oreal, but it works for me! Plus it has an SPF of 3o, so it is a great skin protector too.



The youth code BB cream I discovered a couple of months ago, and it works like magic! You should try it, and you will see the difference right away. Run, don’t walk, and go get it!



As for the dark circles around my eyes (I mean, really who doesn’t have those?), I have been using this product for the last 4 years, and i find it to be the best! Garnier skin renew. The best concealer I have tried till this day (and I have tried a lot, never getting the natural result I seek).

So these are my daily routine make up; day cream, the BB cream for a great glow, concealer, blush (again drugstore bought), and mascara.

Would you like to share your daily make up routine?
