Thanks to Neutrogena for partnering on this post! All opinions are my own.
I am so excited about today’s post, as I’ve partnered with one of my favorite brands – Neutrogena! Back in the day I used to be a huge fan of their pink grapefruit face scrub, and I still swear by their makeup remover towelettes, as they’re one of the more affordable options out there. That’s why I immediately jumped at the opportunity to partner with them for their new Healthy Skin Initiative!
With the weeks following the New Year being such a busy time, it’s only natural that it might take a toll on our skin. Whenever that happens to me, I shy away from using too many products – but that’s where the new Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup comes into play. The makeup, which comes in 14 different colors, has a lightweight formula that provides just enough coverage – while still allowing the skin to breathe. In fact, because I’m usually a tinted moisturizer type of girl, I was pretty surprised at the smooth and silky application of the liquid makeup. It made my skin feel (and look) smooth, rather than caked and too matte. My friends will attest to the fact that I’m very particular with putting too much heavy product on my face, so this was a refreshing experience.
Now, onto the fun! I was charged with recreating a look, and I chose the Metallic Bronze Eye. There were several different products used in the look, but my favorites were the Nourishing Eye Shadow (with built-in primer), the Healthy Volume Mascara, Healthy Skin Blush, and the MoistureSmooth Color Stick. I actually could rave on and on about the color stick, but just know I’ll definitely be purchasing more colors at the drug store! While these products promote healthy skin, one of my favorite aspects is the affordability. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think high price tags always correspond with high quality.
All in all, I’m particularly fond of this look because it’s not too overdone, and very subtle. I actually decided to switch it up, and mix in the eyeshadow with the blush for a more pinkish tone!
You guys know I’ve been into skincare lately, so it was super fun for me to learn more about and test run some products that won’t make my skin freak out! Here’s to a healthy (skin) New Year!
