1.What is your daily skin care routine?
I use the Oil-Free Acne Wash pink grapefruit foaming scrub from Neutrogena, then use the Nicel night renew anti-wrinkle cream alpha hydroxy & aloe at night. In the morning, I use the Oil-Free Acne Wash again, I use the Dermasil Oil Free Retinol Facial Cream with Vitamin A & E, and then I use the OLE HENRIKSEN ultimate lift eye gel.
2. What is your weekly skin care routine?
I use TruSelf ORGANICS Detoxifying Mask.
3. How do you prep your face for makeup?
I do my skincare routine and use foundation primers. The primers I do use are from elf, NYX, and MILANI cosmetics.
4. How do you take off your makeup?
I use the oil-free eye makeup remover from Neutrogena with cotton balls or I use the epielle Argan Oil Cleansing Tissues, then I do the rest of my nightly routine.
5. What are some DIY face masks?
I have tried so many…. I will save this for another time.
6. What are some inexpensive makeup brushes?
MYMAKEUPBRUSHSET is an amazing company! I also have brushes from wet n wild but their makeup brushes are whack to me. The most expensive place that I have bought makeup brushes from is Sephora. And even with their brushes, I’m not that impressed. So basically, shop at mymakeupbrushset. They are not that expensive and you can get the whole set for like $15. I have different brush sets from them and I love all of my brushes. The price depends on what sets you want but its worth it.
7. Do you prefer matte or shimmer eyeshadows?
I really don’t wear eyeshadow a lot but if I had to choose I would say both.
8. Do you prefer matte or dewy skin?
I love both looks honestly. Matte skin is good for the people with excessively oily skin or acne/breakouts. People with this concern usually want to minimize the oil and prefer a matte formula that won’t add more moisture. While, Dewy skin has a young, fresh, and vibrant look to it. It works well on any age including mature skin as it moisturizes and reflects light, softening any fine lines or imperfections. Dewy skin gives the appearance of health and an active life. Plus, it’s sexy! But there is a fine line between dewy and shine.
9. Do you prefer matte or shiny lipstick / lip gloss?
I live for a good matte lipstick so matte it is.
10. Lipstick, Gloss, Lip Stain, Balm, or Lip Liner?
It depends on the outfit, the hair, and the makeup. Everything has to come together to make the look.
11. What type of coverage do you prefer from a foundation?
Right now, I’m into the whole full coverage look. In the past I used the Sephora Foundation but lately I’ve been using the L’OREAL Paris true match foundation. And, I love it. Sometimes I do switch it up, I will use the NARS All Day Luminous or the Naked Skin Urban Decay foundation. The Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Airbrush Finish and the Revlon PHOTOREADY Airbrush Effect makeup foundation isn’t too bad either.
12. What cosmetic brands you always wanted to try but haven’t?
YSL, Tom Ford, Estee Lauder, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Makeup Forever, and etc.
13. Do you wear fake lashes?
No, but I do collect them. I am just too scared to put them on myself. I love dodolashes, use my code:IAMCRYSTALEE to get some $$ off your next purchase.
14. What type of product do you buy the most of?
I buy a lot of hair products and skincare products.
15. Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
I prefer to stick to same skincare routine if it is working for me, but I like to try something new every now and then.
