Hello Everyone and welcome to another video blog post recap!
Makeup is crazy and the makeup world is even crazier, so lets just dive in.
If you want to keep up with makeup launches then you can take a look at the Twitter and Instagram pages for Trendmood. There are literally several posts a day announcing lunches from Colourpop, ABH, Urban Decay, Kylie Cosmetics, and literally every other brand you can think of, and its not slowing down. Honestly, it is ridiculous and overwhelming. (If you are not prepared for a rant you can skip down to the next paragraph but if you want to hear my thoughts stay tuned.) There is no one who could possibly purchase all this makeup and even if they could then there is probably no way that they could use it in this lifetime. I also feel like there is no way that brands are giving launches the time they deserve. I could go on forever but if you want to hear my full rant watch my video 🙂
Now onto the makeup portion of this segment. Since I live in one of the driest parts of America my makeup routine is different than what it is in the summer. during the summer I have a firm belief that primers are useless. The more products that you put on you face the more that they can slide around. However, in the winter using a primer helps to add another layer to lock in the moisture so that my skin doesn’t suffer.
As far as the rest of my face I keep things the same for the most part. I use the same powders, concealer and setting spray. I have been trying the Morphe continuous setting mist and I have some mixed feelings about it. I feel like its a good setting spray but it doesn’t have the oil control factor that the De-Slick All Nighter Setting Spray has.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, how do you have desert dry skin but also still struggle with oily skin? Well here is what I think is going on, since it is more dry outside my skin produces more oil to try to balance itself at. That is just my theory but whatever the reason is, its still a struggle.
If you guys also seem to struggle with oily skin and a crazy dry winter let me know. Also please check out my video and give it a like and subscribe to my channel.
