For all your beauty advice…
Good morning, and Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend…do you wonder, as much as I do, why it goes by so fast? Thanks, as always, for the great questions this week. Read on about eyeshadow primer, tanning, and red carpet glam.
Dear Brooke, I love cream eyeshadow, but it creases on me by lunchtime. You’ve talked about eyeshadow primer in the past, but I still haven’t tried it. Which one do you like the best, that will work the best with a cream shadow? Thanks! Jenny K.
Dear Jenny, I have yet to meet an eyeshadow I don’t like, and I wish someone had introduced me to primer years ago. There are some great products on the market right now, to keep your shadow in place. Urban Decay makes a great primer, Mary Kay has one you can trust, but my absolute favorite eyeshadow primer is Shadow Insurance by Too Faced. I have very oily skin, even my eyelids tend to be oily, but Shadow Insurance will keep your makeup in place. With some primers, you have to work fast, because they really set your makeup, but Shadow Insurance lets you blend as much as you need to. Try it, and let me know your thoughts!
Dear Brooke, I have a question about tanning. If Vitamin D is supposed to be so good for you, why is going to a tanning bed so bad for you? Can’t I get my daily D going to a tanning salon? Vikki A.
Dear Vikki, I think this may be a question for your dermatologist, not me. But, I will give you my honest opinion about tanning beds. From what I know, tanning beds aren’t providing any Vitamin D for you, they are just exposing you to the harmful rays doctors recommend you protect yourself from; that’s probably why you tan so fast in a tanning bed. I’ve never heard of any good side effect from using a tanning bed; I’ve only heard about increases in skin cancer, wrinkles, and other things we try to avoid happening to our skin. If you’re looking for an instant glow, I would go for a Mystic Tan, or try an at-home self tanner.
