Sephora Play April 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This month’s theme is “Step it Up!”.  A Step in the Right Perfection:

  1. Cleaning with Meaning – In the PM, try double cleansing.  They suggest starting with an oil-based cleanser to help break down make up and then follow with a foaming face wash.  In the AM, they suggest just using one cleanser, but to cleanse as dirt builds up while you sleep and can clog pores.
  2. Nice to Treat You – They suggest using whatever you need, whether it be a peel or a serum.
  3. Hydration Station – Hydration is one of the most important steps in any skincare routine.
  4. It’s Prime Time – They say primer is the secret to flawless makeup application.  They suggest using a dime-sized and letting it sit before applying foundation.
  5. Blush Hour – Blush helps restore a radiant complexion.  It is important to not use too much or too little.
  6. Yes Eye Can – This tip is all about eye liner.  They say black is the go to.  There are various colored options that enhance your eye color.  If you have dark brown eyes try plum or navy, lighter brown eyes should try olive or grey, blue eyed gals should try baby blue or champagne, green eyes try violet or copper, and hazel eyes should try silver or gold.
  7. Oops!  I Did it Again – they suggest using primer to fix any make up mishap.  Use a Q-Tip or finger and watch the mistake magically erase.
  8. Just Brow-sing – The Secret to natural-looking brows is the right color match.
  9. Remove Over – Soak a cotton pad in makeup remover and hold it over your eyes for 20 seconds, the makeup should lift off easily.
