Prime Time: What’s up with Primer?

I’m often asked “What’s primer? Do I really need it?” It’s something that is often overlooked and yet it’s one of the most important products you could use in makeup. Makeup primer is no different then primer you’d use on the walls in your home. I know. Scary. But it’s true.

10 Skin Care Tips: Winter Edition

As I said in my last post on my daily skin care regime, “Great makeup starts with great skin.” Though this statement is true, it is much harder to maintain great skin in the winter months.

My Current Skin Care

Great Makeup starts with great skin. An oldie but a goody that couldn’t be more truer. When I turned 25 I realized I probably should have started taking good care of my skin earlier on, but there was no time like the present when it came to a healthy change.

So it’s been years since I bought anything worth mentioning from a drug store. I’ll be the first to say it and openly admit that I’m a MAC girl through and through. I’ve been hooked ever since my first Satellite Dreams eyeshadow and haven’t looked back.
