EFFIN TOP LIST: BEAUTIFUL SKIN

October 03, 2014

So we all have little tips and tricks to get us by when it comes to makeup, beauty & skin care.  We thought we'd share a few of our favorites when it comes to our skin.

First off, we're all about the fake tan.  People, guys in particular, hate fake tanning.  But when it comes to protecting your skin from not only skin cancer, but everyday aging & wrinkle development, a spray tan, lotion or oil is a great way to get by instead of soaking up the UV.  One of our favorites is the Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil by St. Tropez found at Sephora.  It's $50, but it's an oil so you don't have to use a lot of it every application.  You evenly rub it in all over & the tan develops within about 4-8 hours.  We've had great results with it, good color & streak free.

Ever wonder how to get that pretty glow on your face?  We found an easy trick to this without paying a lot.  Get a shimmer eyeshadow color (we use one from Sephora that's under $20) that is similar to your natural skin color.  Using a small face brush, place the shimmer on the upper part of your cheek bones in a line towards your hairline and then a little on the outer parts of your forehead.  Basically apply it anywhere that the light would naturally hit.  You'll end up having a natural shimmer that makes your skin seem flawless!

By far one of the hardest tricks is keeping your face makeup in place and looking fresh.  If you're going to invest in one of these products, make this one a priority.  Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder.  Once you start using this product, you will always want it.  Do your usual face makeup routine (foundation, powder, bronzer, whatever you do) then finish with Ben Nye power.  Using a small face brush, apply powder beneath the eyes (to keep your eyes looking fresh with no dark circles) and then do a lighter coat over the top of your bronzer and forehead just to secure the makeup.  We both use it and absolutely love it.  You can find it online on Amazon for usually less than $20! 

Stay beautiful, babes.

To the young people watching at home, don’t waste your time trying to be like anybody else, because the things that make you strange are the things that make you powerful.
