With a fervent passion for all things color cosmetics, Beti of Makeup Sessions understands just how important healthy skin is! Especially when it comes to priming your face for the perfect color application. This beauty blogger shares her insider tips on all things skin and the benefits of splurging.
Why is good skin so important to you?
As a makeup lover I use makeup almost every day so having a good skincare routine is a must. Makeup tends to clog your pores so you have to make sure you cleanse the skin properly. Also your base will not look good if you don’t take care of your skin so I always say that if you splurge on something it should be skincare.
What made you curious about Dr. Dennis Gross skincare?
The fact that the brand is cruelty-free and vegan, and the natural ingredients that go in to every skincare product definitely sparked some curiosity. Knowing that a company doesn’t use any animal byproducts in their skincare is a big plus in my mind.
Tell us something we don’t know about you?
I was a late bloomer when it comes to makeup, started wearing it while I was in college and even then it was just the basics like foundation, mascara, bronzer and lipstick. I think I started experimenting with makeup after 25 and really got in to it since I started my blog, 2 years ago. I’m also a mom of two, a 4-year-old boy and a one-month old girl.
What’s your Top 5 ‘can’t-live-without’ beauty products?
Concealer, mascara, lipstick, moisturizer and a cleanser are my mainstays. I can’t really pick just one lipstick brand but I do love Bite Beauty lipsticks since they use natural ingredients. For mascara and I’ve been using the YSL Babydoll mascara for years now.
Do you have any insider tips when it comes to your skincare regimen?
The power of a serum! I use some type of serum both in my day and nighttime routines before I apply my moisturizer. Serums have more potent ingredients so they can address any skin issues better than, let’s say, a moisturizer can.
Would you call yourself a peel addict?
Do you have a favorite Dr. Dennis Gross product? Tell us why!
Of course the Alpha Beta Universal Peel Pads because they make my skin very smooth plus prevent any breakouts. And I also love the Instant Radiance Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40 because it gives me a slight tint for those days when I don’t want to wear any makeup, plus it protects me from the sun and adds a nice glow to my skin. That’s pretty magical to find in one product.
