If you are a busy momma like me, you know we barely have time to shower some days let alone put on makeup. Well as I get closer to the big 40 I must confess I now make the time to put on my sunscreen and foundation every single day. Mainly because I am trying to hide these tired designer bags ok my “eyes” after nights of minimal sleep. Yes #momlife! I really thought they would sleep through the night by age 11 lol.
That is when I struck up a conversation with my mommy friend that is a makeup artist about what products I should use daily. I know that she’s an expert and has tried hundreds of products over the years on her clients. Her first suggestion was to add a primer to my routine. She says, “ You wouldn’t paint a wall in your house without adding primer first, would you”? Think of your face like a canvas. Hmmm, I thought… I have some of that in my makeup bag. Sephora included a sample of Smash box photo finish primer in my birthday gift box. (frequent VIP shopper) I just never used it lol. So I tried it the next day. Boy what a difference! My skin looked amazing and the makeup lasted all day, even through barre class. It is the number one seller right now!
After using it daily for about a month, my sample tube was almost empty. I headed back to Sephora and there stood a display full of all the bestselling primers. How do I pick with all of these options? I messaged her again because there was so many to choose from and I really wanted to try another one to compare to Smashbox. She said to try Too Faced the hangover. I made my purchase but not before buying a few other things. That store is dangerous. Fragrances, hair products, nail polish and way too many lipstick options.
The next day I applied the Hangover after washing my face and moisturizing. I felt a tightness at first. I started wondering if I was going to have an allergic reaction lol. While reading the ingredients I was shocked to see that it had probiotics, coconut water and skin revivers. Really, probiotics for your face?? Next, I applied my foundation and very minimal eye makeup. I was thrilled to see my new glow. It was like an instant makeover. My skin looked flawless and I got compliments all day.
So if you are not using primer girl don’t feel bad. Just run to Sephora or Ulta ASAP and grab you a tube. You definitely won’t regret it! Too Faced is my new best friend!!! I can’t wait to try a new mascara!
