Looking Out For Our Skin
Skincare can be difficult because skin is always absorbing what is happening in your environment. It changes with the weather, your stress level, your diet; everything from too much water to too much sun can do a number on your skin! Clean cosmetic formulas are key for protecting your skin, but even more so when your skin is affected by cancer treatment. Clean formulas without damaging chemicals and substances are key to a healthy makeup routine, so check your ingredients, especially before you get a little too liberal with the foundation for a special event! Safe products we like to use include the Flawless Matte Foundation from Emani Vegan Cosmetics. Not only is this foundation a clean and vegan formula, but it also moisturizes! Make moisturization and cleanliness a priority when mixing makeup and treatment.
A Pop of Color
Reviving your healthy color will be a big part of your night out. Choose jewel tones and a subtle but effective bronzer, like Emani’s bronzer, which has a non-irritating and clean formula. If your dress is a more neutral color, play off it with bold eyes. Don’t be afraid of color! Golds and greens, as well as purples and plums will bring depth and pop to your eyes. For lips, reds, pinks are always on trend and are an easy way to brighten up your look—just be careful not to get lipstick on your dress!
