Reader Feedback: My current skincare and makeup routine!

Labels: , , ,

This is the third question I am answering from the top responses in my Spring Feedback Giveaway!


Reader "Kanashimi Blue" asks: What is your current daily skincare/makeup routine? Do you have any holy grail products?

Shop With a Vengeance! Response:
My current skincare and makeup products are listed below! I love pretty much everything I've listed, but mainly I think it's important to have products that you feel work best for you. Something that is great on me, might not be so great on someone else, ya know? I have combination acne-prone skin, for reference.

Basically, with both topics, I try to keep it simple. My skin is fairly temperamental so I don't want to use products with too many chemicals or unknown ingredients. The makeup I have listed are products that basically even out my complexion. Of course I use other blushes, eye shadows, and lip products... but I just wanted to give you the mainstay products. Hope this helps!

I have yet to try an oil cleansing method, but it sounds like it would it would be helpful (especially for make up removal). I think I might give that a try and see how it works out :-)

Hi Kenya! Thanks for coming by :)

The oil cleansing method is great for removing makeup, as well as just all around dirt, oil, etc. Oil dissolves oil, as they say... so even waterproof mascara comes off easily!

Definitely try it, I'm sure you get the gist of how it works, but if you want more details, check out this site.

just stumbled on your lovely site. i use shiseido sunprotect lotion too! I used to use sp30, but it's a shade lighter. What's your color in MAC?

Hi Jie-Jie!

I have actually never been formally color matched by a MAC artist, but, I'd assume I would be somewhere between an NC20-25. I'm somewhat pale, and if I was at the height of a tan in the summer maybe NC30.
