Great Makeup Starts with Great Skin ( Part1)

You know what they say ” Great Makeup Starts with Great Skin”.  No matter how much makeup we apply on the face, the end result will never be the same unless your skin is absolutely amazing. Its like building a ” house”, the foundation of it has to be perfect or it will fall apart.  If there is one thing you should invest in it should be skincare. There are alot of skin care companies in the market (drug store, department, cosmetic grade, surgical grade).  You want to make sure your skin care line is enriched with active ingredients and not fillers for it to do its job.  One line which I LOVE is ” ZO Skin Health by Zein Obagi“, it is amazing and your skin will thank you for it. You would need to buy it from a Medi Spa that is designated to sell the producs.  One medi spa in particular is Avente Laser and Aesthetics.


Avanete laser and Aesthetics is based in Burnaby ( Highgate area), Voted # 1 place in Burnaby in 2014 and definitely  my ” GO-TO ” place for something out of downtown. They pride in their customer services skills, are passionate abot the industry and you always leave feeling refreshed and educated about what products and services.  Sandi is my Gal!


My Top 3 Products that I recommend for Brides and anyone in general are the Oclipse Sunscreen and Primer, Offects Exfoliating Polish and the Ommerse Overnght Recovery Creme


Oclipse Sunscreen and Primer with SPF30- This product is by far my favourite Sunscreen on the market. Not only is it not greasy or oily. It does not leave a ” white cast” on your face as the colour is a skin/nude colour.  A little bit goes a long time and your will is soo smooth afterwards =). Apply it under your makeup as a sunscreen and primer to have a more smoother and even surface for your foundation.



Offects Exfoliation Polish- Gone are the days of dry skin.  Using my regular cleanser with this exfoliator my skin feels so smooth after I wash my face. The blue crystals are ultra fine and exfoliates your dead skin cells.  You need so little with it, massage in a circular motion, rinse and of course feel how smooth your skin is afterwards. I also love how it is enriched with Vitamins A, C and E  as antioxidants for your skin =)



Ommerse Overnight Recovery Creme- Your skin does most of the “recovering” during rest time. A long day of enviromental radicals causes stress to our skin.  When you go to bed you need to feed your skin and nurish it back to health.  This night creme has calming agents that prevent irritation and retinol etc that work on your skin overnight to repair and regenerate your skin sells to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Its like skin food during the night 😉




Stay tuned for my adventures back to Avante in July when I tried out their signature service the Hydrafacial which is a must do for Brides 😉
