Friend Friday-Beauty Finds

First, let me start by saying, this is my first real FBFF post!  I have enjoyed reading my fellow bloggers answer these questions and now, it's my turn to join in.  So, here goes:
March 4: Beauty products

1. What's your favorite drug store makeup product and your favorite
higher-end product?

I love to mixi high and low end in fashion and when it comes to beauty products, the same rule applies.  My favorite drugstore product is Cetaphil Soap and Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Conditioning body lotion in Coco Butter.  The soap is so mild, but cleansing.  I have very sensitive skin and my dermatologist suggested it, I swear by it for my skin.  Vaseline Intensive Care lotion (coco butter) is so light and mild I use it on my face.  The light fragrance does not irritate my skin or my allergies! High end beauty product is hands down- MAC Mineralize Satin Finish SPF-15 Foundation.  Last but not least, how could I forget, Ponds Cold
Cream.  I use this to remove my makeup.  It's cheap and it smells great.  I use this mostly before bed to remove my makeup and to mousturize my skin as I sleep!

2. Is there one type of product that is your go-to, can't live

I can't live without my tube of Revlon #735 Champagne Shimmer.  It is perfect for day or night.  It works well as a moisturizer and gives sheer shimmery coverage with a slight hint of pink.  Perfection!  I use a tube a month!!!

3. What's the best hair product you've ever used?
This is subject to change, but I would have to say Suave's Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner!  Hands down the best shampoo and conditioner combo I have used in a LONG time.  The best part is the $2 price tag.  No, scratch that, the very best part, are the results!  I have shiny, delicious smelling hair! Try it, you will not be disappointed!
4. Fess up, what's the worst beauty look you've tried to rock and look
back at now with a little shame or apprehension that you actually did

Finger waves, remember them?  OK just me?  I wish I had a picture to scare you with, sorry!  It was the 80's what did you expect?
 5. When it comes to beauty products, we all use the same basic
products. What do you use that helps show off your personal flare and

Hmmm, I like to look as if I am barely wearing any makeup.  My goal is to show off my skin, not my makeup. To that end, I always incorporate sunscreen into my products to protect my skin from the harmful sun rays.  I love the sun, but hate wrinkles.  Protect your skin ladies, please use SPF in all your beauty products!

Well, that was fun!  Thanks Katy at Modly Chic for providing us with the great questions!  Until, next Friday-Besos, Lynn

Nope, not the only one who tried finger waves, haha!

BTW, the name of the photography school is Owen Biddle. He is in Havertown, working out of a home studio. It's pretty cool- you should check it out! I will probably take several classes from him.
