fresh year, fresh start: the skin …

When a the opportunity arrives to start fresh, I jump on it. The start of a new week, a new month, a new year … it’s always a marker for me to try something new.

Without a doubt, you are probably the exact same way. With the onset of 2013, let’s focus on beauty products that can help you start fresh!

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB

Available in five shades, this lightweight but longlasting BB cream keeps your skin looking real, dewy and healthy. It’s perfects the skin without masking it so you’ll start your day (and new year) with brighter, smoother skin without the weight. Complete with SPF 30, this BB cream is under $11 CDN and can be found at WalMart, Shoppers DrugMart and Rexall.

Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion

Never forget the skin over the eyelids. Even out the entire face by adding a bit of this nude based primer over the lids to where alone for an flawless look (it will hide the tiny veins and slight coloring on the eyes) or under your eye makeup to prevent creasing and to let eyeshadows show their true colours. Urban Decay does carry tinted/colored versions of this primer, but nude is always best! Under $25 CDN at Sephora and select Shoppers Drug Mart.

MAC Blot Pressed Powder

Sometimes, perfect looking skin requires that you touch up throughout the day. MAC Blot Powder is a makeup artist favourite that can help to reduce shine without adding any extra “cake” to the face. It let’s your skin radiate through without the oiliness. Just $29 CDN at MAC Stores (free-standing and at The Bay).

Laura Mercier Undercover Pot

Every girl needs a concealer she can trust to do its job and stay put. This one gives you three useful products in one travel-friendly pot. A yellow toned concealer for marks and blemishes, a creamier peachier-toned concealer to mask dark circles and discoloration; and underneath a yellow based powder to set and brighten. Available at Holt Renfrew and Sephora for approximately $40 CDN.
