A beautiful complexion starts with great skincare and the sloughing away of those pesky dead skin cells. Before any big event or date we swear by the Kinara Red Carpet Facial Kit. In just 3 steps (peel, neutralize, mask) your skin is exfoliated and left in a more radiant and refined state for makeup application. It's like a professional treatment you can do in your own home!
You can't apply foundation without a primed and moisturized face and we love the benefits we see with the Eve Lom TLC Radiance Cream. This lightweight cream is great for all skin conditions and not only hydrates but provides a plumping and lifting boost that you see for hours. I think it leaves the skin with a lovely glow as well.
I love to highlight the face with a subtle glow and I've recently discovered It Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Aging Creme Radiance Illuminator for that very purpose. Just swiping a bit over tops of cheekbones, bridge of nose and middle of forehead creates a lit-from-within glow that makes skin appear more youthful and vibrant.
If you're wanting to not wear a heavy makeup look then we love Jouer's Bare Beauty Collection. One, for the unbeatable price. For only $58 you get 4 products that enhance your own natural beauty, leaving you feeling fabulous and still looking like yourself. We also love that that all of these can be connected into 1 palette making them a breeze to grab on the go and carry in your purse for touch-ups.
