Connie's Beauty Profile

Inspired by the So Loverly girls, I figured it'd be useful to have my very own Beauty Profile floating around my blog for reference.

Age: 23
Skin Type: Combination Dry. Sensitive and eczema-prone. Only oily on nose after 5 hours. Occasional breakouts pre and during menstruation
Main Problems: Eczema, allergic reactions, beakouts on dry areas ie. cheeks and forehead, fine lines on forehead, eye bags, uneven skintone around chin
No-no Ingredients: High content of... petrolatum, beeswax, alcohol. But it all depends on the quality of the ingredients as well.
HG Ingredients: Salicylic acid, jojoba oil, shea butter, dimethicone, tea extract, hyaluronic acid

I wish I could do a beauty profile but I don't know half of what I am! As in all those numbers/tones/colors. LOL!

Connie De Alwis said...

Plue: Do la :D

Jenn: You should! It's useful info. Now I hope nobody would ask me how a product controls oil cuz seriously, I wouldn't know! I have barely any oil being produced in the first place!

Pretty: I think this has become a tag!

e.motion: Do it! :D

rinnah: Just gotta search into your stash for the foundation colors ;)

Connie De Alwis said...

Fuz: It's no wonder I can relate to your reviews!

Tine: Saw it! ;)

A really great foundation is the Aqua Elements Breathable collection from Lauren Hutton. It covers nicely, and has a very natural look. I've recently switched to this from Bare Minerals, thought I would share.

I used your Beauty Profile as a model for mine on my beauty blog. But don't worry, I gave you credit :)

Your blog is great! I'm a huge beauty product freak myself, and I love to read about other people's similar beauty experiences. You're blog's layout is awsome and easy to navagate. You're content is very accessable. I'm a big fan! Hopefully someday I can establish the sort of readership that you have!
