Winter Blues

BLOG, Health, Uncategorized / Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Every month I do a collaboration with other MUAs across the country and January is all about skin and a simple makeup look.

It’s winter in Wisconsin…so that means I have to change my entire skincare routine!

My oily skin becomes much drier in the winter, and my skin almost gets confused about the whole change. Not to mention my eating wasn’t very good over the Holidays!


The entire month of December I used the Timeless Prescription Advanced Hydroxy Face Peel and Neutralizer to exfoliate & rejuvenate my skin, so now I have switched over to using the Lumiere de Vie Volcanic Mask twice a week. It is formulated to detoxify, and enhance skin’s glow and dramatically improve tone and radiance. It is extremely important to exfoliate your skin on a regular basis.

I have been cleansing with the Timeless Prescription Exfoliating Cleanser & toning with the MDI Firming Activator followed with the Skintelligence Alpha 24 Triple Revitalizing Complex.

And one of the most important things that women forget is…moisturizing my neck  with the Lumière de Vie Advanced Firming Neck Crème. It is an innovative crème that strengthens and smoothes the fragile skin along the neck and décolleté for a firmer, younger-looking appearance.

For my look today I started with my foundation-Motives Liquid Mineral Powder-Vanilla Cream
To add some color, I applied Motives Shimmers-Goddess to the top of my cheek bones and added some glow with Motives-Shimmers-Starshine to the tip of my nose and on my cupid’s bow to make my lips more pouty 😉


And of course prepped my eyes with Motives Eye Base.

I wanted to go with a clean, simple look so I grabbed Motives Creme Shadow-Brown Sugar and applied it to my mobile lid. I blended it in to the crease with the orange color in the Motives for La La Court Mineral Eye Shadow Palette

I wanted o have a bold cat eye, so I went with the smudge proof Motives Luxe Precision Eye Liner-Jet Black. It’s so easy to use with the felt tip and it stays all day!
I curled my lashes then used my new favorite mascara-Motives Fiber Lush to lengthen.

I filled in my eye brows while keeping them natural with the Motives Eye Brow Kit

I used Motives Lip Pumice followed with Motives Vitamin E Lip Treatment to moisturize
Motives Matte Lipstick-Seduced


I finished my look by setting it with Motives 10Years Younger

And if you are looking for an amazing intense body moisturizer, I LOVE using the Lumiere de Vie Intensive Hand & Body Creme , it’s perfect for that dry winter skin.

To detoxify my skin and body from the inside AND to get my eating back on track, I am starting next week-NutriClean 7-Day Cleanse. I like to do this cleanse twice a year to cleanse my liver and all of the toxins out of my body. This along with lots of water and fresh veggies makes my skin AMAZING!
