Skincare and Makeup for an almost 30yr old[ Edited ]
Ok I am turning 30 this year and I am still constantly in search for and trying new skin care and makeup products.
I currently use Neutrogena skincare- cleaner, toner and night/day cream
I use it because it has worked the best out of what I have tried... But I am not in love with it
I have combo skin and dark spots from picking at my face ( a habit I am trying to break)
I have used Smashbox cosmetics for about 3 years now and just like the skincare it's because I liked it the best out of what I have tried. I have olive skin ( I am half black and half white) and my main concern is covering dark spots and dark eye circles.
I NEED a new routine and any suggestions I would love to hear! I am a mother of 3 boys, one who is a newborn, so I don't have a lot of time for a lengthy routine, and I usually spend about about 45 minutes (shower to walking out the door) to get ready.
Clinique Superbalanced Makeup is a great for combination skin because it is an oil-free liquid foundation that adds moisture and subtracts oil where needed. They have a lot of shades to choose from and you can find it at: http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P122740
A full coverage concealer for those areas that foundation just won't cover up is Make Up For Ever's Full Cover Concealer which you can find at: http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P151107
An excellent anti-aging moisturizer for combination skin types and / or acne-prone skin is Kinerase "Lotion" because it is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, fragrance-free and is non-irritating for even the most sensitive skin. You can find it at: http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P234614
It will not clog your pores or cause breakouts and I think you'll really like its light texture.
I hope this helps you.
I'm 23 and really like Clinique. The #2 toner is the one I like and usually you are supposed to use the dramatically different lotion, but I like the gel much better. I'd recommend Even Better Lotion.
