Becca First Light Priming Filter Face Primer

Becca

Becca First Light Priming Filter Face Primer transforms our complexion from dull to a brighter, more refreshed look!  Our skin stays hydrated all day due to a few key ingredients like prickly pear and energizing ginger.  Not to mention, it has a lovely scent of fresh lemon. We like to apply this lightweight primer after our morning skincare routine and before our foundation.   The primer has a violet hue but applies sheer to the skin.  The lavender pearl complex and cool light technology blends out any redness and blurs imperfections.  It can be used with all skin tones and skin types. You can even wear this primer by itself for a healthy, and natural look.  This everyday primer preps our skin perfectly, giving our complexion a brighter more luminous glow!

Bye

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer is designed to help cover and improve problem skin, all while protecting it with SPF 50+ broad spectrum sunscreen. A lightweight moisturizer-foundation combination that acts as a double whammy! The foundation covers imperfections and offers more of a medium long-lasting coverage. The moisturizer in the color neutral-medium makes Lauren’s skin smooth and soft.  It’s a great time saver to skip the additional step of adding moisturizer. The product does help with skin concerns such as redness, dark spots, pores, breakouts, lines, and wrinkles.  The foundation does not crease or crack once applied and is very hydrating.  

Lauren particularly likes using this on the days she will be out in the sun or off to the gym and running errands.  Because her T-zone tends to produce more oil she applies a loose powder on top of the Bye Bye Foundation to set.  In our opinion, we feel this product is best suitable for those with a normal to dry skin type.   The difference between this and the It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ is the 3D Skin Flex Technology in the Bye Bye Foundation.  Both products offer very similar ingredients and are great multitaskers!

Amazing

Our climate consists of season changes which can sometimes wreak havoc on our skin. Now that colder temperatures are upon us, it dries out our complexion leaving it looking dull. Today we tackle a product that does a great job providing that instant natural glow to our skin.

Amazing Cosmetics Illuminate Primer & Highlighter is the kind of “pick me up” we all need this time of year. With a lightweight and hydrating water-based formula, this duo evens out skin-tone and fades dark spots as it conceals flaws to instantly brighten your skin.

Karen uses Glow (Sheer Hue) under her foundation above her cupid’s bow and Lauren uses Rose (Rose Hue). We both like to dab a small amount above our cheekbones for an instant highlight. We love that this product does both prime and highlight which is a real time-saver.

We feel the Amazing Concealer Illuminate provides a bit too much shine under our eyes, but we do love to dab a small amount on in the inner corner of our eye. So we call this a triple threat: wear alone for a sheer glow, use as a base to extend your concealer and foundation or as a highlighter for extra definition. Time to shine!
