Prep and Perfect

Hello!  We've done quite a few makeup looks, but we haven't talked as much about perfecting the all over look of your complexion so that makeup looks go on even better!

We will list the products and who makes them, followed by approximately how much they cost.  Keep in mind many of these products we don't spend nearly the retail price on as they are available at our local TJ Maxx store!  We would love to know your skin care routines also!  Leave us comments.

Here is Justina's current routine:  (Combination Skin)


  • Remove eye makeup with Neutrogena Hydrating Eye Makeup Remover Lotion ($7)
  • Wash face with Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Mild ($9)
  • Exfoliate with Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Pore Scrub ($5)
  • Remove any lingering eye makeup by applying Vaseline and wiping off excess with a cotton ball. ($2)
  • If skin is feeling dry, use Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Visible Skin Renewer serum ($42)
  • If skin is feeling oily, use a more liquid serum- the Balm Time Balm White Tea Strawberry Nourishing Facial Serum Infused with Strawberry Extract ($49)
  • Apply Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel to entire face and neck area.  ($13-24.50)
  • If eye area is feeling dry, apply Clinique All About Eyes ($29-47.50)
