Many years ago when I fell in love with make-up, the only thing that mattered was color cosmetics.  I was drawn to the amazing colors in eye shadows and especially lipsticks.  I went to the MAC counter and it was  special event to pick out eyeshadows, lipsticks, and eye liners to add to my collection.  As I became more comfortable applying make-up, my collection quickly grew to the foundation, concealer and all  categories in the make-up arena.  I was the make-up queen (not a drag queen, lol) with so much make-up that I created a custom look everyday.  I quickly developed the bad habit of not taking off my make-up and cleansing my skin.  When I did decide to wash my face, I used bathing soap. As a result, my skin was constantly, irritated, broken out and I suffered from hyperpigmentation. My skin started to look so bad without make-up, that foundation and concealer was must, even on the beach.

After awhile, I decided to take care of my skin.  Because I knew I could never give up wearing make-up, I purchased and began a skin care system. I also had to invest in a good eye make-up remover.  So, all the ladies that love make-up, please take care of your skin.  Invest in a good skin care line, it’s actually more important than the make-up.  It’s not all about COLOR!
