Skin Care: Dry & Sensitive Skin

I have worked with many skin types, skin tones and several different types of products to address each type of skin. So after buying and trying products, some horrible fails and some I buy again and again. I have come to find some tried and true products that do what they say and they help me get the job done. This post will be covering skin care and setting/ priming sprays. I have dry skin and i’m constantly on the lookout for anything that will not only stick on my face all day but will keep my completion smooth and hydrated. No one likes the the tight feeling you can get from some products. 


Here are a few products I use personally and on clients:


MAC Fix Plus - Preps the skin for other products but also to seal everything in after you are done with your makeup. I use this product mostly after I have powdered the face to take away that “cakey” look you can sometimes get after all the layers of different products.

Glycyrhetinic acid instantly soothes sensations of overheating and tightness and ensures instant comfort. Sensibio Rich moisturizes and restructures the skin barrier, thus keeping irritants.


Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre- You will find this cream in almost every makeup artists kit. Why? Because it works as a primer, moisturizer, and make-up remover all in one. Embryolisse Creme is great for dry skin, fine lines and helps firm the skin. What makes this product work so well is the soothing aloe vera and shea butter.


Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask- This lightweight overnight mask is packed with a heavy dose of vitamin E, an antioxidant known to slow down cell aging. The unique pudding-like texture also known as “shape memory cream” clings to skin, creating an even surface that immediately absorbs upon application.
