Make-up Bag Sewing Project

Today I learned a new skill thanks to a fantastic teacher via a youtube video, Gretchen Hirsch. She gave fantastic step-by-step instructions on how to sew these cute little clutch pouches. She is very lively and skilled at sewing and gives great explanations while doing each step. I am a beginner when it comes to sewing and I realized that doing these make-up pouches, which seemed intimidating at first, was quite doable with a great teacher along your side. So, I would like to say thank you to her and encourage anyone to challenge yourself and explore a new skill or talent!

Dior Forever Skin Correct Concealer

I love this concealer! Dior Forever Skin Correct Concealer is a creamy, moisturizing concealer that is 24-hour, long wearing and gives full coverage. It works great to add that extra coverage on top of my foundation to give the skin that creamy, smooth flawless look. And best of all, although it is a higher price point, it lasts several months for me because a little goes such a long way!

Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser

How often should you wash your face? I recommend washing your face morning and night. One of my current favorite cleansers is Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser. Glossier is an up and coming cosmetic company with a strong online presence. The cleanser is very gentle and conditioning and feels good on my normal-to-dry skin. My skin feels softer and glowier after using it! What is your favorite cleanser?

Basic Skincare Routine

Are you looking for a basic skincare routine? With so many products on the market, it is no wonder how knowing what to put on your skin each day and night can be a mystery. So, to keep it very simple, I will share something basic that can be done both morning and night. More products can be added to this regimen, but doing this will be a start and help develop a good routine/habit.

  1. Facial Cleanser (Choose for your skintype-Dry, Normal, or Oily)
  2. Toner (Removes any excess dirt, oil, or make-up and to prepare your skin for the next step)
  3. Serum (Pick your type based on what you want more of. Ex: anti-aging, brightening, etc.)
  4. Moisturizer (Choose for your skintype-Dry, Normal, or Oily)
