I’ve never been big on makeup – I abide by the general, “less is more” rule when it comes to what I put on my face. I am, however, a huge fan of makeup products that enhance natural beauty and I’m also low-key obsessed with skincare products.
I’m 29 years old and only recently started to notice a few wrinkles creeping in so now, more than ever, proper skincare is super important to me. I’ve had a few makeup and skincare products gifted to me recently and I decided to round up a few of my current obsessions as well as some of my all- time favorites!
For Brightening, Highlighting and Concealing:
My face is extremely fair skinned which means the bags under my eyes, have bags under their eyes. As such, I love a good concealer or brightener! These three products are my current “must haves” for all things bright, light and concealed.
For Cleansing, Exfoliating and Cleaning:
Being that I’m not big on a ton of makeup, I have no choice but to be big on cleansing, exfoliating and cleaning my skin. I’m super picky about what I use to clean my face, so these recommendations aren’t coming with a grain of salt!
For Restoring, Hydrating and Anti-Aging:
Who doesn’t love to quench their thirst? These products will leave your skin feeling as if it chugged a tall glass of ice water on a hot and humid day.
For Enhancing your Eyes:
As I mentioned, a few times, I’m not the biggest fan of a ton of makeup but I sure do love my eye enhancing products. From eyebrow pencils to eye highlighters and mascaras – I love it all.
Bonus: A Specialized, Three Part, Serum Kit:
The Renovita LUME Revitalizing Serum is a three-part process that starts with balancing. The first part, a Revitalizing base, balances and calms skin while regulating to limit inflammation and irradiation. The second part, a Regenerating Booster, boosts with Renovita’s patented RGF-Extraction Month which extracts the Regenerative Growth Factor jumpstarting skins ability to regenerate while boosting your body’s natural collagen production. The third and final part is the Purified Factor used to nourish and being that each kit is personalized this final step will vary depending on each user, but it is designed to provide your skin with the exact nutrition it needs.
How does it work? You add the Regenerating booster and your unique Purified Factor into the Revitalizing Serum, shake-shake-shake your custom blend and apply to your entire face before moisturizer. I found that my skin felt super smooth and extra hydrated. I loooooved adding the Three Part Renovita serum under my moisturizer, especially during the cold, harsh, dry winter months in New York it felt so great to have a product helping to keep my skin moisturized while looking and feeling fresh.
