SkinCarebyMarley - #2 My Routine

   Hey y'all I’m back with part two! ✌🏾😛 This part is about my regimen and products I’m currently using so let’s hop into it! 💃🏾

Night 🌃

At night is when I do my full skincare routine.
Makeup Removal - First I take out my contacts and then I remove makeup with olive oil (if I was wearing any bc I rarely do).
 Cleanse- Then I get a warm towel, wipe my face, and start lathering my SheaMoisture African Black Soap Face & Body Bar in the towel. Then I use my lathered up towel and start cleansing my face.
Exfoliate - After I have soap all over my face then I pull out my spin brush and on the lowest setting gently exfoliate with my cleanser.
Tone - Next I get my towel and rinse it out to wipe off my cleanser with cold water. Now I’m going to tone with my MaryKay Botanical Effects Formula 3 Freshen and cotton balls.
Moisturize - Finally I Moisturize with my MaryKay Botanical Effects Formula 3 Hydrate. UPDATE: I’ve started replacing my moisturizer with cocoa butter only at night and I like the results if you wanna try it. UPDATE 2: don’t try it lol my pores gradually started to look larger and larger because the cocoa butter is comedogenic. My pores were noticeably smaller when I stopped using.
Face Oil - In the winter I’ll finish my routine with an incredibly small amount of olive oil.


Freshen - When morning rolls around, I don’t like to cleanse again so I simply wipe my face with a cold towel and freshen up with toner
Moisturize - I use the same moisturizer morning and night
Mattify - Finally I use my MaryKay Oil Mattifier to take care of shine throughout the day


Mask - once a week I use a mask for ten minutes in between cleansing and toning. The masks I alternate between are the MaryKay Botanical Effects Formula 2 or Formula 3 Mask.

Just so you guys know I’m far from perfect when it comes to doing my routine perfectly consistent but I try lol nobody’s perfect


April 16th, 2015

Okay, I have been using this product for about a month now and I must say it is the BEST moisturizer for oily skin! I have used other mattening moisturizers in the past that have not worked, but this keeps my face matte for a good six hours straight.

I just apply it under my makeup, but one thing I do have to say is that this product is SO mattening, makeup doesn’t spread well over it. I have to apply a primer or my Baby Lips Pore Eraser over top just to lube it up a little ahah.

It’s the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion from The Body Shop. I bought the 50ML squeeze tube for $10 plus tax, and it just smells amazing. Like a very strong, natural, tree bark or pine leaves.

anonymous asked:

Can you give examples of skincare routines for winter and summer? Especially for my oily acne prone skin

I can’t guarantee a whole routine for anyone, because everyone reacts differently to products. It’s really not the most helpful thing, as I have product recommendations all over my blog. It’s more important what kinds of products you use. 

But, you bring up a good topic on transitioning your skin care routine from summer to winter and vice versa.

The key is to listen to your skin. In general, most people produce more oil in the summer and dry up in the winter. However, this is not always the case, and when it is, it’s not always dramatic. Also, a handful of people go the opposite way; getting oily in the winter and dry during the summer! My point is, you may not need to make any changes at all.

If you do feel as though your skin reacts to the change in weather, then it would make sense to change your skin care routine a bit. All seasons should have an emphasis on hydration. In the summer, use less oily products in your routine and mattifying products to absorb excess sebum. In the winter, use more oily products. Simple, right?

For example, let’s take one routine and transition it from summer to winter:



Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner

Cosrx Ultra Moisturizing Oil Free Lotion

Australian Gold Botanics Tinted Face Sunscreen SPF 50


Heimish All Clean Balm

Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner

Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream

So, you see how we used a foaming cleanser, an oil-free moisturizer, and a mattifying sunscreen? These are all reasonable moves for oily skin in the summer.



Rinse with water OR Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean Cleansing Milk

Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner

Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream


Heimish All Clean Balm

Skip a second cleanse OR Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean Cleansing Milk

Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner

Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream

Now, you’ll notice that we cut out a foaming cleanser either entirely or in favor of water/a cleansing milk Also, we switched to a moisturizing sunscreen to replace the oil-free moisturizer and mattifying sunscreen. Again, reasonable moves as the weather dries up.



My Summer Glam tutorial is ideal for those of you going to a Wedding, a Prom, or just a special occasion in the daytime where you want to sport something subtle with a touch of glam! 

I decided to include how to prep your skin before makeup to help keep you shine-free all day, as well as keep your makeup in place for longer. It’s important to prep your skin first, particularly in the Summer months as the warm weather will aid the wear of your makeup much quicker than in the Winter months. 
There are tips and tricks in there for all skin types, particularly oily skin.

corrective (on clean skin)

  • hourglass mineral primer (helps with redness, anti-aging, pore size, lines)
  • bobby brown oil free tinted moisturizer

lmao *god warrior voice* SKIN CAAREEEE

mitchy-fleur  asked:

Could you recommend me foundations primers that suitable for dry skin? Thank you! :)

Primers are often reserved and targeted towards those with oily, combination and acne prone skin with large pores and dry skin types often get forgotten about. Mattifying, oil free primers are great if you need your makeup to last all day or have oily skin, but on a day to day basis they can be a bit too much for dry skin. Overtime I’ve tried many primers, some bad, some good and some great. I’ve tried ones for every skin type under the sun and every skin condition/concern and as someone with dry skin myself here are some of my favourites.

curvycurlygirly  asked:

Sorry if this has been asked before, but What are your thoughts on powder vs liquid or cream foundation? Should people with dry skin avoid powder, or can either be used on any skin type?

This is a great question! There are so many formulas on the market nowadays rather than just standard powder foundation and it can often be confusing which formula is suitable for which skin type….


Liquids are suitable for ALL skin types but where possible choose a formula tailored to your skin type. Dry/Normal skin is best with a moisturising formula and Oily/Combo skin is best off with an oil-free mattifying formula. Try: Revlon ColorStay Foundation (for all skin types) and Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation (for normal, dry and combo skin)


Mousse foundations are best suited towards those with normal or oily skin, they are generally NOT suitable for skin with any signs of dryness as they have a tendency to cling onto dry patches of the skin. Try: Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation and Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

Score a 100% complexion match quick and easy.

As the oiliest member on the Sephora editorial team, I was not exactly thrilled to learn my complexion would be featured in high-def on The Glossy. I get my T-zone slick from my mama—our whole family is so shiny we could probably guide home ships in the night with the light reflecting off our faces. Needless to say, my naturally greasy gleam isn’t going anywhere, and I was admittedly put off by the idea of getting it touched up in public. But after my Sephora Mini Makeover, I saw the light—and for once, it wasn’t bouncing off my mug. BECKY PEDERSON

Though I came in totally barefaced, the first step for every makeup application is to cleanse your skin. My kick-ass beauty expert, Claudiavel, used SEPHORA COLLECTION Express Cleansing Wipes to take off the day’s gunk. Next, Claudiavel sprayed me with Caudalie Grape Water, a toner designed to soothe your skin. This relaxing, sensorial experience made me feel like I was at a day spa instead of sitting in the middle of a busy store. Claudiavel then applied Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet, a lovely-scented crème she highly recommends for almost every skin type. She followed with Clinique All About Eyes so my makeup wouldn’t fall into my laugh lines. In keeping with that day spa vibe, Claudiavel massaged my face with both applications. All that was missing was a glass of wine.

With my skin clean and moisturized, it was time to find my perfect foundation match. Using the Color IQ tool, I learned that my number is 1Y07, which means I have light skin with yellow undertones. Claudiavel helped me search the database to find the foundations that would suit me best. (It was at this point that I also learned I’ve been wearing too-dark shades my entire life. Chic!)

Another product Claudiavel swears works for just about everybody: the Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer. This bestselling product is formulated to even out your skin’s texture—perfect for my oily complexion.

Using the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Flawless Airbrush #56, Claudiavel blended my Color IQ foundation pick: the Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Mattifying Oil Free in Ivory. This foundation goes on as a liquid but transforms into a velvety, oil-absorbing powder once dry. I was worried the formula would also strip my skin of natural moisture, but Claudiavel assured me it would only target sebum. (Fast forward to six hours later: She was right. The only thing getting sucked off my skin was oil.)

Claudiavel used her fingers to cover my under-eye area with more foundation, suggesting I only need to break out the concealer if I’m having skin issues my foundation just won’t cover. Also, she explained that using your fingers warms the product so it goes on more naturally.

Sorry/not sorry to brag, but I looked great all day. I ran into my boyfriend’s mom, who immediately remarked that my skin had a healthy glow. Also, my gorgeous coworkers, unaware I’d had a Mini Makeover, heavily complimented me—which is really all the affirmation I need.

Clearly, Claudiavel knew what she was talking about—the products she picked out were perfect for me. But beyond getting personalized makeup recommendations, my favorite part of the experience was taking 15 minutes out of my day to pamper myself. This small time investment had a huge payoff: My good mood lasted long after I took the makeup off. Regular trips to a day spa aren’t in the cards for me, but for the low price of $0, a Sephora Mini Makeover is something I can swing.

j-a-a-c-k-y-y  asked:

Hi, I'm having a problem with my makeup. I have really oily skin so by the end of the day most of my makeup has disappeared and there is no coverage whatsoever. Is there anything you would recommend to make my makeup say on longer throughout the day? I've tried lots of things like setting sprays, primers, different foundations but the ones I used didn't really help. Any products that you would recommend ? Please answer :) and ps. I love you blog :*

Since you’ve tried so many makeup products i’d recommend venturing out into skin care to help with oily skin :)

A lot of people don’t realize instead of trying to control oily skin with makeup you can help prevent it by using the right skin care! Your pores produce more oil if they are enlarged and clogged. So focus on keeping your pores tight and clean so they’ll be happy and healthy and not over produce oil :)

You want to aim for foaming cleansers, clay masks, pore refining/oil controlling toners, oil controlling lotions, etc.

Foaming cleansers are a bit more drying on the skin they soak up all the excess oils and dirt. I would recommend using a foaming cleanser in the morning (not at night because you don’t want to try out your skin) so through out the day your skin will be clean and oil free.

Toners can be used after your cleanser and can help purify the pores so you wont produce as much oil during the day. Go for toners like Keihls Rare Erath Pore Refining Toner ($21), Murad Clarifying Toner ($22), Origins Zero Oil Purifying Toner ($21), Boots Botanics Shine Away Mattifying Toner ($5 at Target), Dickinson’s Pore Perfecting Witch Hazel ($5)

Clay Masks can be used once or twice a week to help shrink the pores and deep clean. Remember small pores means less oil production. Try Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Mask, super cheap at CVS, Walmart, Walgreens and Ulta!

Exfoliation helps with declogging your pores because it scrubs away any dead skin clogging the pores or getting in the way of your skin care working. You want to go in with a face scrub, face cleansing brush (like the Clarisonic) or use a chemical exfoliant to keep the skin smooth and clear.

Oil Controlling Moisturizers will help moisturizer during the day as well as help control oil. Try oil controlling lotions like Murad Oil Control Mattifier ($39) or Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Moisturizer ($16).

rosie-red-dead  asked:

Do you have any recommendations for eyeshadow primers for really oily eyelids? No matter what I do I always end up with terrible problems with eyeshadow creasing, even eyeliner too, no matter what I try for primers.


For oily eyelids I highly recommend the NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, it’s great for really oily lids and those prone to creasing. For a more affordable option check out Milani’s new eyeshadow primer!

Also p.s for eyeliner try using waterproof liquid liner or using a matte eyeshadow as eyeliner, pencil and gel liner is a lot more prone to smudging and creasing with oily lids.

A few other tips to help combat oily lids

  • Dust translucent powder all over the lids before applying eyeshadow (after primer). This will help control oils like how translucent powder controls oils on your face! If you don’t have translucent powder you can use a thin layer of a face powder or a powder eyeshadow the same color as your skin.
  • Use a long wearing cream shadow under your powder eyeshadow. This will act sort of like glue to keep your eyeshadow in place and not crease. Make sure to only apply a thin layer and use a long wearing cream shadow, something Maybelline Color Tattoo! You can also substitute this with using a long wearing concealer or foundation. 
  • Use a brush instead of fingers. Using a brush applies the shadow more evenly to prevent caking up and creasing and your fingers can add excess oil onto the lids. 
  • Use an oil controlling, mattifying lotion across the lids. If you have oily skin you probably have a few mattifying creams for your face, try them out on the eyes! Just make sure to use very little because you need less.
