Makeup. What an amazing, fun thing to play with and express yourself through. I personally love makeup and everything it offers. Ever since I was about 5 years old, and bought the silly little eyeshadow kits from Claire’s I’ve been in love. I remember trying to walk out to Kindergarten with vibrant blue eyeshadow and bright red lipstick on. Now at 15 going on 16 I absolutely cannot get enough of all things makeup. For real, I am addicted. Now imagine my surprise when I discovered it’s all about your base. That base you are offering to the makeup is your skin. As a teenager I guess I’m lucky, I get a breakout every once in a while. Other than that, my skin is pretty clear. (I will explore what to do when that break out happens later!) So for me, most of the time, I seem to be missing that extra glow and fresh look that I strive for.
Recently, I finally found something to achieve it. As simple as it may seem, it’s a beauty oil. I can’t seem to get enough of it. Beauty oil has become one of my favorite things for so many reasons. Instead of being sparkly and glittery (not that I don’t like a good sparkle now and then), it gives a slight natural shine to your face. You know when people say dewy? That is what happens! It makes your skin feel so smooth and luxurious, which many people, including myself, seem to be striving for.
I’ve been using French Girl Facial Oil Elixir, and the French Girl Under Eye Oil. I felt like with these new opportunities it was opening a whole new, fresh start for my skincare routine. I love these oils and use them in so many different ways. I use the facial oil primarily at night time. I usually use it right after I have removed my makeup, and have washed and toned my face. Then, I like to roll on the undereye oil and I pat it in with my ring finger. Both of these oils make my skin so soft and glowy. I use a small amount, about a dime size of the face oil. If you use too much it can feel greasy at times. If not too much is used though its effects really shine through.
After using this oil for about a month, my skin has seriously felt so amazing. I wake up in the morning with refreshed, and glowing skin. Even without makeup, beauty oil is amazing on its own. It never fails to make my skin look healthy and ready for my day, my exams, my friends and my back to school busy schedule.
