2016 was a big year for me beauty wise. I found some of my favorite products, realized what works/doesn’t work for my skin and even went VIB Rouge (a.k.a. spent WAY too much money at Sephora). Amidst the countless products I tried last year were a number of hidden gems that I’m happy to share with you today!
I’ve dealt with skin issues for almost a decade now. Yes, that’s 10 whole years. My skin has seen it all— from glowing olive-toned skin to redness, and middle school acne to uneven texture in adulthood. I tried product after product to see what best suits my sensitive skin, but never found anything that made a noticeable difference in its overall appearance.
I’ve been wearing makeup for a long time. I love that you can create so many different looks with it and play up whatever feature you’re feeling that day. With makeup, however, comes a lot of money down the drain. Somewhere along the way I developed the idea that drugstore makeup was not good enough, and thus began the many, many trips I’ve made to Sephora over the years.
I am SO excited to finally be sharing this with you guys! While I was in New York City, I got the chance to interview Diane Avitable, an esthetician who talked to me about all things skin care. She gave me loads of information and I learned so much about taking care of my skin. So, grab a snack (or five) and get comfortable, because this is something you need to read!
