What is your perfect shade of foundation?
simple, let it be your natural bare skin.You know that saying "Your makeup only looks as good as your skin."? Well this is true. Makeup will not change the texture of your skin but it can create an illusion that your skin is baby bottom smooth.
We wear foundation to even out our complexion, hide blemishes, contour, conceal, and bring out our best features.
But lets be honest with ourselves, going through the steps of finding the right shade every season as our skin fluctuates between deeper and lighter shades can really be a pain. While part of the joy of being a beauty addict or guru is discovering new luxury foundations, I also think that we should be focusing on the integrity of our skin as well!
It is easy to forget whats important when there are so many options for a quick fix i.e: just covering up our blemishes instead of addressing them. Short term this is fine. But the problem with this is, we only have one face, one body of skin. It is our responsibility to take care of it as it literally takes care of us. It protects us.
Our face is the first thing people pay attention to, and usually the last thing we see before we go to bed and the first thing we see when we wake up. In every consultation I ask my guest what they would like to address. The answers are not what make me sympathize with them, It's the way the answers are delivered.
Typically when we see flaws in ourselves we feel defeated, and it shows in our self esteem. And the beauty industry, much like the fashion and health industries, continue to market quick fixes like all of these fantastic new HD foundations, illuminators, and many other foundations and finishing powders and setting powders with a brand new optical technology. We get so excited! And then we forget to get exited about skin care.
I started the Make-up Rebellion to work on consistency for healthy skin. Not to boycott cosmetic foundation. But you'll be so in love with your skin that you just might want to do that! I will greet you once a week for six weeks with a wonderful all inclusive facial tailored just for you. A home skincare plan, a back up plan, and we will also go over nutrition and emergency skin care i.e:breakouts, dry patches, allergies, sunburn, etc.
I am really looking forward completing this transformation with you. I live for results! And I love to make people feel comfortable in their own skin.
