MADELIFE M U ST H AV E MADEXXX SPRING M A K E U P 41 1 MADE BY TERRY RAYSON Winter is gone John Snow! Well at least that’s what we hope. If you’re like me and live in the Midwest you know the weather is unpredictable. One minute it’s sunny the next it’s rainy, and if you’re in Chicago, it could even…..snow (gulp)! With the changing season not only is it good to change up your makeup routine, but also your skincare regimen. There are a few products I like to keep around for the unpredictable weather and the ever changing skin. I prefer using products that are more on the natural side and works with all skin types. Here are a few of my favorite go to's that will keep you looking fresh and your skin healthy. MAC Prep+Prime lip Primer $18 So I know what you’re going to say! “Why would I use a lip primer if you suggested a liquid lipstick”? Well prepping the lips for a long wearing lipstick is essential in all lip wearing. It’s to smooth texture and boost the longev- ity of the lip products. Ever use a liquid lipstick and notice in the middle of the day it’s cracking and peeling? That’s prob- ably because you haven’t properly prepared your lips. This lips primer from M.A.C is by far my favorite! It’s smooth’s the lines in your lips and makes you lipstick look like heaven. IThis is something that should be in every woman’s purse and every MUA's kit Nars Exposed Cheek Pallet $59 The Nars Exposed Cheek Pallet is another one of my favorites. It’s a pallet I actually think everyone could benefit from. Every shade looks amazing on every single person. I’m not a big fan on blushes that are super matte. Blush should bring color to the face and reflect light the same way skin does. A glowy blush is perfect to accentuate the cheek bones making the look high and mighty. #mademaven 35 Blue Copper 5 Cooling Moisture Mist $38 First on my list is the Blue Copper Cooling Moister Mist. I love prepping the skin with this mist before any makeup application. It really hydrates and allows for a smooth naturally glowing skin. It increases the skins natural moisturizing factors to dramatically boost hydration and moisture retention. It’s perfect for those who like a full coverage founda- tion or a matte wearing foundation. I believe no matter if you have dry or oily skin you still need to prep it properly before foundation. Especially you ladies who like a full glam look!
