My skin always gets a little more sensitive when I’m pregnant, but this time its got extra sensitive. Face products I used to swear by burn the heck out of my face. Certain lotions make things worse. I’m having reactions to stuff I swore would never hurt me. Its been a journey. But I’ve also made it a point to really take care of my skin while I’m pregnant – and I’ve been good at that goal. My skin has actually looked really great the majority of this pregnancy (besides when I randomly react to stuff) and I’m so grateful for it. Its also caused me to wear less makeup because 1) I’m more comfortable and confident in my skin when its cooperating and kind and 2) My motivation is lacking the bigger I get, so spending less time on makeup always seems like a plus to me.
These two cleansers have saved my skin. My usual Image product I love and cherish were tormenting my skin and I had to take a break from them. I’d heard a lot about HelloBody and decided to try their Coco Fresh Cleansing Foam and was instantly impressed. Its gentle and it works. Sadly, in the last month I’ve started becoming more sensitive to it (thanks, skin), so I don’t use it daily anymore, but I still love it and highly recommend it. I’ve also still been loving my tried and true GlamGlow Gentlebubble Cleanser. This one is so nice to my skin. Its never given me a reaction, it makes my skin feel nice and clean. No complaints here.
IF I wear foundation…well lets start that over. I haven’t warn foundation in a while. If I choose to wear something that covers my whole face, I’ve been opting for some kind of BB Cream or tinted moisturizer. The one I keep gravitating towards lately, should I choose to cover my whole face, is the NYX Bare With Me tinted skin veil. It stays on well and it applies well. Its very light coverage, but thats what I’m going for.
I got this blush and bronzer combo in a Boxy Charm box a while ago (I’m pretty sure) and on days I choose to wear one/both of those, this is what I grab 95% of the time. Its from Wander and is called Trip For Two. They’re both really good and buildable shades for me.
I haven’t warn a lot of highlight lately, but when I do its this. Its OFRA and Madison Miller Highlighter in Sea Shimmer. It can be subtle or flashy and I am pleased with it either way.
I decided to branch out and try a new brow product this month and have been very pleased with my on-a-whim purchase. This is the Maybelline Tattoo Studio brown pencil. Its easy to use and quick to apply – all things I’m looking for right now.
Lastly, if I decide to wear lipstick (usually only happens for church) this is the color I’m currently obsessed with. I’ve had it a while but have recently rediscovered it. This shade is just barely darker than my actual lip color. Its kind of one of those my lips, but better colors for me, you know? Its a Maybelline one (I can’t find the name of it) that lasts all day and is kiss/food proof in the shade Seductress.
