Giveaway: My Makeup and Skincare Favorites

Four of my favorite makeup products are from the brand Benefit. First is The Pore-Fessional primer is hands down my favorite primer on the market! It smooths over pores, fine lines and imperfections — making your face feel smooth and keeping your makeup on much longer then most primers. Second is Benetint, a rose lip and cheek stain made from roses. It is waterproof and smells amazing! Benetint gives your cheeks a natural blush. Third is High-beam which is liquid highlighter. It is perfect for smoothing on to your cheek bones, underneath your brow bone, or down the bridge of your nose. High-beam gives a subtle but glowing effect when it it catches the light. Fourth is the Bad Gal Lash mascara. This mascara is perfect for amping up your lashes! I have long, but very thin lashes and this makes them extremely thick and volumized, without becoming clumpy or spidery! In my opinion, this mascara is perfect for all lashes!

No matter what, cleaning your skin should always be a priority. My favorite skin care system is the Dermalogica Clean Start kit. It comes with a foaming cleanser, a face scrub, a morning moisturizer with spf15, a nighttime moisturizer to clear your skin while you sleep, and an allover clean toner for morning or night! Every morning and night, I wash my face with the Clean Start foaming cleanser. I use a pea-sized amount and massage it into my skin with Clarisonic (Look for a review on the Clarisonic soon!). Twice a week I follow this with the facial scrub, gently rubbing it all over my face. Then I pat my face dry with a towel. After my face is dry, I apply the All Over Clean toner and follow that with either my morning or night moisturizer. This routine is the best way for me to keep my skin clear and healthy!

These are just a few of my makeup and skincare favorites. I will be giving away the makeup items and the skin care kit to two people! If you would like to be entered, please leave a comment below telling me what kind of makeup blogs you would like to see from me in the future and whether you would like the skincare kit or the makeup items! The two winners will be chosen at random and in one week I will announce the winner on my blog. Please have your parents permission before entering because I will need your mailing address.  Good luck!

    I loved your article. I would love to win the makeup kit. I have heard of benefit makeup and have never tried them. I would love to read an article about applying makeup to give the illusion of a thinner face.

  4. Jennifer says:

    I would love to see you do some reviews on BB creams, as some people absolutely rave about them, whereas others are less inclined towards using them. Also do you have any tips on the best moisturisers to use for combination skin? I have very dry skin and therefore I have to moisturise, but I can never find a moisturiser that doesn’t make my skin really shiny or oily!
    Lastly I would love either really but probably the skin care kit more as I think caring for your skin is the first step too getting the look you want and I am always up for trying newly recommended skin care products!

    Blog about your face routine and tips, I am in dire need of a face routine that will get me through the day without making my face an oily mess by the end of the night! Also maybe about how you choose your foundation and concealer and how you decide what matches the best with your skintone (:

    Hi! I’d like to see some maybe like a super super beginner makeup tutorial? I remember when I first started wearing makeup, I had no idea what everything was, let alone what order or where to put it on my face. Or maybe recommendations for skincare? I know makeup takes a toll on one’s skin, and I wondered how to keep one’s skin clear and smooth. (for all skin types)

  22. Melissa S. says:
