In the nude

Ladies, we've heard for years how bad it is for our skin to go to bed with our makeup on. I can't agree more, but I think most women don't realize they're not getting all of their makeup off at night before applying those expensive nighttime products. You need a product to take it off, or should I say, take it all off!


You've heard me talk about micellar water as one of the most fabulous products for wiping makeup away. I'm going to keep harping on it over and over again, as there's nothing better to start the process. If you don't believe me that your other cleansers aren't working as well as you think they are, try this step last and you'll be surprised what appears on that cotton pad.


One to try that you can get anywhere from Walmart to a cosmetics store is Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire. Models swear by this French brand's classic formula and I recommend you give it a try.


Speaking of getting nude, nude shade lipsticks are all the rage, but it's often hard to find a shade that works for your skin color. I came across this article that includes some great brands and shades of nude lipsticks you might want to check out in the store. You can find it  here.  



In addition, many of you know I'm a big fan of lip pencils. Even when doing a nude lip, I often take a nude pencil and not only line the lips, but put it all over the lip and then apply the lipstick or gloss over it. You can do this with any shade of pencil, as it makes the lipstick last much longer.


Till next time.  BJ
