smokenightmare asked: Do you have any tips for someone that wants to start a skin care routine
If you have no idea were to start I say look for a solid 3 part system to begin with and add products for your specific needs as you go along.
- Cleanser-find a cleanser that works for your skin type. Gel and Foam work great for oil, creams are best for dry skin types. Steer away from heavily medicated/ acne cleansers in the beginning. Sometimes the skin breaks out because of misdiagnosing skin type or over cleansing. Simply finding the right cleanser does wonders.
- Serum/Treatment- Find a serum or target treatment that will focus on a particular skin concern you have. Serums are much more concentrated and can aid in changing skin condition.
- Moisturizer- Everyone needs a moisturizer,period. Find one that is oil-free, with an SPF of at least 30, no exceptions. The sun is your biggest enemy when it comes to aging and dealing with issues like hyper pigmentation/acne scarring.
Start here and add products like eye creams, exfoliating scrubs, masks,etc once you get your skin focused in on a solid 3 part system.
I love lines like Dermalogica and Kiehl’s for beginners, they take a lot of the guess work out of skincare and the product selection is pretty amazing.

So Femme!!!! I hope I helped.
highqualityfashion: Prada FW 14 Backstage Femme Boy: Fresh skin and tons of mascara, so femme. ;-) Prada really channeled a modernized “Twiggy” look for their most recent show. A lot less effort, more wearable for daytime, but still wide eyed and youthful. To get a look like this, layer on your mascara with a slightly heavier hand. Go with two separate mascaras to create a thick, slightly clumped look. Put on the voulminizing mascara first, heavy on the lash line and follow with a mascara designed to lengthen with a more precise wand. Femme Fetches: Dior Show Blackout Benefit They’re Real Maybelline Big Eyes- comes with two wands and much more affordable Calvin Klein CK ONE Mascara -comes in 5 shades, works great as accents on tips of lashes for a pop of color Be sure to go with a black mascara for the full drama, navy and brown tones will work fine for a more subtle look especially with fairer skin tones.

Loving this video. Fun look for all the long haired femmes!!!
Femme Fetch: Iman Second to None Stick Foundation Currently loving my Iman Stick Foundation!!!! Totally believing in the power of more cream based foundations thanks to Bobbi Brown, MAC, and now Iman. This stick is great for all skin types and a number of skin tones. Iman Cosmetics isn’t just for “black” femmes it’s for a myriad of people looking to get better coverage options. The Iman Second to None Stick Foundation dries down to a velvet matte finish, which I love. If Iman Cosmetics can do anything it is definitely coverage and foundation. Will be picking up the their BB Cream soon for sure. So Femme!!!!
Femme Fetch: Alterna Bamboo Shine Luminous Shine Mist For having such a little amount of hair I manage to hoard a good amount of hair products and most don’t do much to impress me really. But I have to say that the Bamboo Shine Mist is my favorite hair product right now. I love it primarily for the light weight feel, non-greasy shine, and the fragrance. The stuff smells so amazing, like I can’t get over it. The Bamboo Shine product line is Eco- Friendly, which is great. The biggest drawback is the entire line seems a bit overpriced, but the products are solid none the less. So Femme!!!!
