Before I dive in to some of my favorite beauty products for brown girls I want to first say that I pray that all who read this are healthy and safe during this time. What we are experiencing Journalist have noted is the worse pandemic since 1918. I know for most of us it is scary, confusing or both; I can most definitely say I have had a mix of emotions. Many of us are practicing social distancing and spending a lot of time at home. I’m sure some of our down time we are thinking of what to do and there is no better moment to focus on your skin. Below I am sharing 5 of my HOLY GRAIL products that have changed my make-up/beauty game for the better.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water is my favorite beauty item hands down. If you wear make up daily or like me from time to time; this product will wipe that full face off in seconds. No matter how much (or hard) I would wash my face I would still have mascara on, not with this product. The best part about it is the price only being $9. You can find this at any drug store.
OleHenricksen C-Rush™ Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer is pricey but worth the coinage. It completely hydrates your skin and is not super oily. My skin is extremely sensitive and I have not had a single issue with this product. I have also noticed that it has decreased some of my fine lines. You can purchase this at Sephora.
NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation is a product I may NEVER change. I have tested and tried tons of foundations over the years and nothing has come remotely close to this product. There is a shade for every skin tone, it's easy to apply, has great coverage and is buildable. You can purchase this product here.
BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector has been the ONLY primer that can tame my oily skin. I have tried high-end and drug store products and after an hour or so they all have worn off completely. This product has controlled the oil on my skin for up to 12 hours with no laugh lines or creases and can be found at Nordstrom.
I AM MAGIC CONCEALER by Juvia's Place is game changing. I purchased some items from this company with no real knowledge about their products. I bought a few items from Juvia's Place during a Black Friday sale in November in an attempt to support as many black women owned businesses for the holidays and I have no regrets because this product is BOMB! I use it as a concealer/highlighter and it has great coverage but it is not heavy. Best part about I AM MAGIC CONCEALER is the 24 unique shades you can choose from. You can purchase here.
Good skin is always in.....
