I suspect this may be due to the influence of all the Korean dramas I watch but I'm really big on that dewy skin look. I have a number of facial sprays that I employ at various times of the day but I got the Innisfree Mineral Glow Fixer specifically as a setting spray to use on top of my not very elaborate makeup routine. This spray combines a premium herbal/mineral blend with a superfine powder mist that is supposed to fix your makeup in place while also providing a dose of moisture and nourishment. For me, this does keep my makeup intact for hours and also gives my face a natural and radiant glow and it has a lovely light green scent. Innisfree is a Korean brand out of the island of Jeju in South Korea that is known for their pure and natural beauty products. I purchased this product through Memebox for $16 and I think this was money well spent. It can also be purchased on Amazon.
Mira Skin Hyaluronic Skin Serum*
I've been using this Mira Skin Hyaluronic Skin Serum as a moisture booster in between my targeted serum and moisturizer and have had zero incidents with the flaking and dry patches that sometimes plague my forehead and nose during the colder months. Hyaluronic acid is highly touted as an extremely effective and lightweight moisturizer. This serum contains hyaluron in it's purest form enriched with eight valuable nutrients (Collagen, Microcrystalline Silver, MSM, Vitamin E, Omega3, Vitamin A, CoQ10, Frankincense and AHA's). This is an impressive moisturizer and skin smoother and I really like the way it sinks in and plumps my skin. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the price which is $149 but it's truly saving my skin right now.
Veil Cosmetics Sunset Light Primer Serum Mixing Base*
I haven't regularly used primers just because they tend not to agree with my skin. Veil Cosmetics Sunset Light was a pleasant surprise and played nice from the very first time I used it. This versatile oil and paraben free product is described as a fluid filter that helps skin achieve the perfecting and smoothing radiance emanated at sunset. It can be used to prime the complexion to provide makeup longevity with serum-like effects that instantly diminish the appearance of pores and fine lines while hydrating, plumping and brightening the skin. It can also be mixed with foundation to create the ideal glide and pigment spread. I've tried it both ways and I generally prefer to use this a primer. It feels virtually weightless and gives off the loveliest soft focus effect. And it doesn't ball up or dry out my skin when I apply my cushion compact which is what usually happens with most other primers. My skin always looks better when I use it and on good days it even gives me that coveted lit from within look. My search for the perfect primer is finally over. Veil Cosmetics Sunset Light retails for $59 and can be found on the brand's website and Amazon.
