Makeup masterclass: my favorite products

 I started this blog a year ago, and today I’m teaching a makeup class for my sorority’s Volunteer Appreciation Week! I am so excited to share my tips and tricks for applying makeup with my sorority sisters. I’ve been asked several times if I would ever host classes. I’m excited to try hosting more classes in the future! Here are the products I’m using in my class that I use on a daily basis! **Some of the links below are affiliate links.

Makeup prep: 

I won’t go too much into skincare because that could be its own post/class, but good skincare is important to prep your skin for makeup! I don’t typically use makeup primer because when you prime and prep your skin, I don’t think you need it. The only primer I use on a regular basis is this one from Makeup Forver to cancel out redness: https://rstyle.me/+OKB8CSggZyszlDfpb2a4ow

Products/steps I use to prep my skin: 

  • Cleanse: I wash my face with this philosophy cleanser: https://rstyle.me/+cvTUezKPbuEVJVWa4a05qg.  It’s gentle but leaves my skin feeling clean. I alternate days where I will exfoliate my face with this philosophy daily face scrub: https://rstyle.me/+ftej7Lj5lYlLDJWPCyzTww.  It’s gentle but works really well! 
  • Tone: I’ve been loving this toner from Good Molecules: https://getgoodmolecules.com/products/niacinamide-brightening-toner. At night, every few days I use this glycolic toner from the Ordinary:  https://rstyle.me/+3VFiKyKCzfzicEdQU5y7jA
  • Serum: I have been using this hyaluronic acid serum from The Inkey. It’s inexpensive and works great to put moisture back in your skin. Make sure your skin is still damp! There has to be moisture there to lock in: https://rstyle.me/+9mHHcMSoW1UuCZYLJf2D_g
  • Facial oil: Before I apply makeup, I love getting my skin as hydrated as possible. I use this facial oil from Colleen Rothschild in the morning before my moisturizer to help keep it super hydrated: https://rstyle.me/+PqeIMbWTorTjCD9lIn1V7g. At night, I put this on and then add the Colleen Rothschild hydrating mask on top and sleep in it so I wake up to super moisturized skin: https://rstyle.me/+2HB2DXOapFZEGtQLVPfiWw
  • Moisturizer: My holy grail moisturizer is the Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb (not the aqua bomb). I have combo skin and it leaves it super hydrated. I’ve repurchased this over and over! https://rstyle.me/+z3vlfLluy3tShqE8KbRkGw

I let my skincare sink in and then move on to makeup.
