Today I'm linking up for my first time with Ladies Who Link.
I've enjoyed following Allie, and couldn't pass up this chance to blog about makeup that I love and get ideas from everyone else.
I always love those women who don't have to wear makeup.
Their skin is flawless and if I were them I wouldn't ever cover my skin either.
Unfortunately, I'm not one of those women.
Acne hit me hard in my teen years, and as a result I have a lot of scarring.
I hate those scars so much, so I try to hide them as much as possible.
I'm debating having a little procedure done that will diminish those scars.
I'm really looking for anyone who has had a similar procedure done and if it was worth it.
So, in the meantime I cover it up.
I've spent so much time and money on my skin that I am so fearful to put a product on it and cause a reaction, so I tend to splurge on my makeup.
In addition, my skin is very sensitive from all of the products that I've used over the years that I have to be careful about what I use.
Here are the different brands of makeup that I've used in the past couple years.
Rig and Co
I really trust my dermatologist and when I first started seeing her they sold Jane Iredale makeup, so I started using that.
Not too long later my dermatologist started making her own makeup, so I started using H&H Science.
Then, I went to an image consultation at a local salon and started using Rig and Co.
I love my dermatologist, but I started feeling like the people in the boutique weren't that knowledgeable about questions I was asking and didn't seem like they really wanted to help me find the right product.
So, when I had the chance to go to a local salon and talk with ecstatic people about makeup, I was hooked.
Typically, I use a combination of Rig and Co. or H&H Science products.
Here are some of my other favorites...
I used to buy this at my dermatologist, but I ran out, and it's not close to where I live.
So, I'm supplementing with these.
A local spa told me that these remove makeup just as well as any other brand.
I was fearful at first that they might burn my skin, but I've only ever felt a little tingle for not too long.
I'm still in search for the perfect mascara.
I like ones that make my lashes look longer but not too bulky.
Any great ideas, let me know!!!
