A flawless complexion is lusted after by even the most beautiful of celebrities. Sadly, sometimes skin just doesn't cooperate. If you're like me, your face goes into freakout mode once a month, causing both discoloration and embarrassing blemishes. This is no bueno, but, fortunately, can be fixed and covered up with a few handy dandy products.
From adult acne cleansers to awesome concealers to light coverage options, tools and beyond, I'm here to dish on some new products -- along with some of my tried-and-true staples -- that'll help you achieve a perfect complexion.
beautyblender Pure kit, $49.95
To achieve flawless skin, you must begin with a clean, beautiful and even complexion. The beautyblender Pure
is makeup artist Rea Ann Silva's newest invention. This makeup blending sponge is shaped in a way that makes it easy to handle.
It's also latex free, non-allergenic, scent free and dye free, all qualities your skin will thank you for. The pure kit comes with the beautyblender, solid blendercleanser and an air.port carry case.
Clarisonic Mia 2, $149
Clarisonic is considered a godsend by many cursed with acne-prone skin. Their newest addition to the family, the Mia 2
(picture at top left) has already incited similar approval ratings. This dermatologist-recommended cleaning system has paired its patented sonic cleansing technology with a new brush head and a powerful salicylic acid-based cleanser. I've been using it for about a month now and agree it's a keeper. Gross confession: One of my favorite parts about using this product is seeing all the dirt, makeup and grime on the Clarisonic brush post-washing. I love the visual proof of its ability to clean.
Dr. Ambe's Spot Treatment, $35
I've recommended this product before and I'll recommend it again. Dr. Ambe's Spot Remover is an incredible product that dries up blemishes within 24 hours (literally, I say that from experience), bringing them to a head. The product cuts my blemish lifespan from a week into a few days, which is obviously a blessing.
Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup, $35
I'm a little obsessed with makeup application videos, so it only makes sense that I subscribe to the amazingly wonderful Lisa Eldridge on YouTube
. She's always reporting on new products, but one that caught my attention in particular was Estee Lauder's Invisible Fluid Make Up
, a new product that provides excellent coverage while never looking cake-y or over the top. It's a little expensive, but lasts forever and is amazing. Watch the product in action here
