UAR  HopeAGE:  22
CITY/STATE:  Longview, TX
PHILOSOPHY:   Bigger hair is better!
AM BEAUTY ROUTINE:   Wash with Paula’s Choice CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser, tone with Paula’s Choice Resist Daily Pore-Refining Treatment 2% BHA, apply Mary Kay Timewise Age Fighting Moisturizer (for combination/oily skin), apply Paula’s Choice CLEAR Daily Skin Clearing Treatment Extra Strength Acne Treatment with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide (this stuff works like magic without drying up my entire face) and  RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream for crows feet. My everyday makeup is usually pretty quick — Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream, Hard Candy Glamoflage concealer, Benefit High Beam highlighter and Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder, Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara if I am in a rush, or Prestige Cosmetics Brow Shaping Studio Powder in Light/Medium, a little eyeliner (I use usually shadow with an angled brush), and one of the Maybelline New York mascaras. The real key is spacing out your skin care products and facial makeup to avoid pilling or patchiness!
PM BEAUTY ROUTINE:  Same as AM, but I usually add in Equate Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover and RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream.  About once per week I use a clay mask or one with glycolic acid.
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT PRODUCT:  Paula’s Choice CLEAR Daily Skin Clearing Treatment Extra Strength. Out of the MANY of anti-acne products I have tried, it’s the only stuff that works for me!
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT COSMETIC:  Maybelline New York mascaras. My very favorites are Volum’ Express Falsies FLARED, The Colossal Volum’ Express and Cat Eyes.
MOST EXPENSIVE PRODUCT:  Benefit High Beam. And my Clarisonic!
BEST BARGAIN PRODUCT:  Prestige Cosmetics Brow Shaping Studio Powder in Light/Medium.  With light brows, it is really difficult to find inexpensive brow products that aren’t too dark! The lighter shade is perfect for filling in brows for a natural look, and I love using the darker shade with angled eyeliner brush for a subtle eyeliner that defines my eyes without being noticeable.
FAVORITE BEAUTY TOOL:  Tweezerman Folding ILashComb.  Essential for perfect lashes!!!
TIP:   Plain corn starch is my favorite dry shampoo ever. It works perfectly for blonde hair and gives the perfect amount of texture while getting rid of any grease. Just rub it on your hands, massage your scalp/roots and repeat until you are satisfied. One package is around $1 and lasts forever.
COMMENTS:   I love trying new crazy trends with my hair and makeup, but I always seem to come back to a more natural look.  I am so glad to see that contouring is losing popularity in favor of strobing– nothing looks better than fresh glowy skin!
