Neu Year, Neu Makeup!

By  | 



The new year is not only a great start for healthy lifestyle habits but also a great time to review your beauty habits. One of them being replacing whatever makeup is expired with newer, effective makeup. Fun fact, there is usually a little jar on your packaging or product that tells you how long your skincare or makeup is good for. It can be 6m, 12m, 24m, or 36m (m for months).

I was in need of a new product providing light coverage and I was desperately trying to find a good concealer. Along with that my skincare had been very much focused on hydration because with the cold and flu running around, my nose has been flaking so bad! Add the temperature drops and you know it’s seriously time to replenish the skin.

Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Collection is perfect for my combination skin and addresses all my above concerns. The line also makes a great addition to what you’re already using in your skincare and beauty routine. I love that it’s lightweight without compromising coverage because I personally like light to medium coverage that doesn’t feel heavy on my skin. I need something that is quick and flawless for my daily beauty routine.

Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer

The concealer took a few swipes before reaching the hydrating core and it was good to go soon after. I really like the balance it has between hydrating while not making the under eye area crease. It provides a flawless/airbrushed kind of effect which works well with the tint. I also like that it’s matte without making the skin feel dry. I used the color Fair 10, perfect for when I want to wear it with foundation or alone.

There is so much I love about this tint. I like that it’s fluffy, I love the wand applicator, and just like the concealer it’s lightweight without compromising coverage. It truly feels like whipped foundation. I love the fact that Neutrogena chose to call it a tint since I’m all about tinted moisturizers and BB/CC creams. I only use foundation for date night and special events so the use of the word tint was a great way to get my attention and help me realize that foundation doesn’t always have to be heavy. I wore Natural Beige 60. This is a win!

I’m very happy to have these two going into the new year to help my skin stay hydrated, refreshed, and natural-looking. This is what my typical daily makeup looks like with the first two being of most importance–concealer and tint. I finish the look with neutral eyes, blushed or bronzed cheeks (sometimes both), mascara, and a lip balm that accentuates my natural lip color. What does your daily makeup routine look like?
