Thank you to Bloomingdales + Shopstyle for sponsoring this blog post.
You may know if you have been following along on my Instagram/Youtube channel for a little while, I have been on a makeup journey these past few months. I have been testing out all sorts of products and finding what I love to hopefully nail down a good everyday makeup routine and also be able to share all of my favorite beauty products with you all along the way! One of my favorites at the moment is the Even Better Makeup SPF 15 (available at Bloomingdale’s)-I’ll share more later in this post!
I look back at old photos + videos when I had no clue what I was doing as far as makeup goes and I seriously cringe! My foundation didn’t match my skin well, I was trying to cover up zits with concealer that was too dark, etc. It was just a hot mess. I am happy to say I have been learning a lot about skincare + makeup and have improved so much! I have also been doing my makeup basically every single day so I can practice and get better. I used to do a full face of makeup maybe once a week! SOOOO let's get into this post!
Spring is in the air and it is time to refresh with some Spring Cleaning, so let’s talk about Spring cleaning your beauty routine! I am talking 1. getting rid of makeup you don’t use AND 2. adding in some CLEAN beauty products to your routine that you can feel good about using. Let’s start with the Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF 15 (available at Bloomingdale’s). This foundation is really great you guys. It is medium coverage and has a very natural finish. One thing that they advertise that this product has is “undetectable coverage” and I can honestly say this is true! There is nothing worse than foundation that goes on cakey and just looks heavy on the face. This goes on so smooth and natural! I’m wearing the shade 02 BREEZE here.
It also has SPF15 which is great. If you are not protecting your skin from the sun, we need to chat sista because you NEED TO! Arguably the best part of this product though is that it is free from fragrance, parabens, sulfates, alcohol, talc and other harmful, harsh chemicals that many beauty products still contain. I really admire Clinique’s dedication to clean beauty. This is something I am trying to be more aware of, because really who wants to be putting harsh chemicals on their skin?! Skin is the body’s largest organ so let’s treat it as such!!
Clinique has a ton of great products, I’ve linked some below. I have recently started using their Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C and I’m loving it. It is for any skin type-you just add two drops to your moisturizer in the AM and PM for a brighter and more even complexion. Plus it’s less than $20!! You can shop the foundation, the lipstick I wore in these photos (Shade: Whimsy) and more below! xoxo
