Normally I tend to be on the oily side on a daily basis. However, during the winter time my face seems to be more on the dry side. These are the products I use to prep my skin in the morning during the cold season:
Step 1. Wash the face with a warm wet cloth to open up the pores.
Step 2. Apply a teardrop size of Eye Cream: [MAC] Fast Eye Response Creme around the whole eye area. Let settle for 30 seconds.
A super-charged, caffeinated cream with instant effects. De-puffs, erases the look of dark circles, firms, soothes and softens skin around the eye. Special optics act like magic to fade away lines.
Step 3. Apply a pea size amount of Serum: I use [MAC] Moisture Infusion Serum Hydration to the whole face down to the neck area. Let settle for 30 seconds.
A lightweight serum that saturates the skin with a concentrated boost of hydration.
Moisture Infusion may also be used as a moisturizing primer. For all of those who have minimal time to get ready in the morning, put on your foundation for step 4. Be aware this product does not contain SPF, however the SPF in your foundation should be just enough UV protection.
For Those who give themselves a little more time, or need a bit more of a moisture barrier to take on the day:
Step 4. Apply a pea size amount of Moisturizer. (If you have to use more, you should look into securing a better quality for your daily use.) I use [MAC] Strobe Cream to the face, down to the neck rubbing in circular motions until blended in.
Strobe Cream is super-powered with potent botanicals; de-snoozes, de-stresses, moistens, freshens and boosts the look of dull, flat or tired-looking skin with a fully loaded vitamin zap and a mega dose of green tea. It brightens and clarifies with iridescent particles and antioxidants.
Step 5. Apply Primer: I use Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer SPF 20. It seals in the moisture perfectly and keeps my foundation in place all day.
Color correcting, wrinkle reducing, and dark spot defying. Creates a perfect canvas for foundation application and even out skin tone with this silky, lightweight blend of antioxidants and vitamins A & E. The formula helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for visibly softer, younger-looking skin.
