Poreless SkinCare Favorites for 2017

Obsession is not even the word to correctly describe my diligent journey to achieve poreless skin. For the past two months I've been into preventative anti-aging skin care, and also refinement of some areas that trouble me. I have tried everything from masks, chemical peels, botox, and sculptra to reach my goal.

ANYWHO...LETS GET INTO THESE FAVORITES!

2. Scentbird Nourishing Sugar Scrub- USE CODE "AVI25" 25% OFF

This scrub is all about a gentle exfoliation, while moisturizing at the same time. I loved the smell and found that I always reached for this product in the shower to exfoliate after showering.

4. Tony Moly Sheet Masks- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8fyl/

These masks are saturated heavily with concentrated essence to specifically target your skins needs! My go to mask is the moisturizing, Pore Care, Radiance, and Brightening masks. Lol, I know that seems like all of them but, Tony Moly offers so many different options to try out from acne, dry skin, and more.

6. iT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Translucent Setting Powder- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8fyn/

I LOVE THIS POWDER!!!!! I had this powder just sitting in my makeup room for a month, and when I finally picked it up, I was mad that I didnt pick it up sooner!! This product is definitely a game changer for me in achieving that poreless look. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!! Pick this up and use it before applying your foundation.

8. BH Cosmetics Waterproof Brow Pomade- http://go.magik.ly/ml/7od4/

I use the shade "Ebony". Definitely a dupe for ABH Dip Brow Pomade. SUPER AFFORDABLE, and a little goes a long way!
 

Have you tried out any of the products I mentioned? If so, how did you like them? 


1. Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8ha7/

This product is a gentle exfoliant that really gives the user control on the amount exfoliation they experience. A little goes a long way, just keep in mind that the more water you add, the exfoliation experience will be more gentle.
After rinsing my skin feels a tingling sensation, and really cool and refreshed.
This product helps with deep cleaning your pores, After removing your makeup, its really important to fully cleanse your face to keep your pores from becoming enlarged.

3. Scentbird Fragrance- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8ha7/

The convenience of being able to just quickly pop one of these in my bag has been surprisingly helpful. I know that this service is aimed to help you determine which scent you buy for a full size, but now I just want to keep trying a new scent. I really enjoyed the Calvin Klein scent this past month, very sexy scent.

5. m-61 Hydraboost Cream- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8fym/

This product is literally magic in a tiny container. PRICEY!! But I promise its worth it. Your skin looks plumper and glowy after using it. I prefer applying the cream before bed if I know I have a big event the next day.

7. Covergirl Healthy Elixir Foundation- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8fyo/

I use the shade "Soft Sable" This foundation gives great coverage. The foundation is breathable and has vitamins and SPF to help and protect your skin. I use this foundation every time I do my makeup check out my Instagram @AvielleAmor to see. Sometimes I do mix it, but it is always mixed with Healthy Elixir.

How To Freshen Your Makeup

We all have been in the scenario of being out and then making that trip to the bathroom to see a map of lines underneath your eye or a pool of oil by your nose. This post will help you with your makeup conundrums and I also have a full tutorial on my YouTube channel.


Let's start off with the items that I recommend you carry in your makeup bag.

  1. BeautyBlender Sponge
  2. Pressed/loose powder (for face)
  3. Pressed/loose Powder (for undereyes)
  4. Buffing brush
  5. Highlighter
  6. Lipstick
    • *Optional* Lash Glue

The steps I take to freshen up my makeup are as follows:

  1. Use BeautyBlender Sponge to blend out any lines underneath the eye.
  2. Apply a small amount of preferred powder underneath the eye to set makeup in place.
  3. Use preferred pressed powder to set the rest of your makeup.
  4. Apply highlighter to desired areas (cheekbones, brow bone, nose)
  5. Reapply lipstick.

QUICK TIPS!!!

  • If you are oily around your nose area, bring blotting sheets to remove oil and then apply a small amount of powder to the oily areas.
  • If your lashes are falling off and you do not want to remove the entire strip bring dull tweezers and apply the glue to the tweezer. By doing this you will be able to be more precise when applying the glue to your lashes.
