I was asked by Blogher and Life Well Lived to answer this special question…
What are your favorite tips and tricks for framing and showing off your beautiful face?
Well, first thing is first, I’m no beauty queen, but do like to think I have a few good tricks for showing off my ‘best’ face.
Wash your face, every day. Especially after you’ve had makeup on all day.
These two are essentials for me. I LOVE the Target brand (Up & Up) apricot scrub for blackheads and blemishes. I use it and the Clarisonic Mia a lot! Actually I wash my face with the scrub every day and only use the Mia a couple times a week.
Use a good coverage makeup.
I’m spoiled and only use Estee Lauder. Yes, I pay more, but it last longer and I think it looks better throughout the day than any other makeup I’ve used before. Everyone’s skin is different though, so it doesn’t work for everyone! Double Wear is awesome!
Have a good hairstyle that fits your face.
I have an oval shaped face. I also have board straight hair if I wear it long. My hair looks ok when it’s long, but it doesn’t do anything for my face, just kind of lays there. I love my current style, I feel like it frames my face really well.
It sounds easy and it really is. I hate to see pictures of girls who do not smile or just grin in pictures. Why do you feel the need to hold it back? I love to smile!
