Hi ladies, happy Monday to you all. I hope you enjoyed your weekend and are having a good morning. I can't believe how quickly the month of April went by! That means it's time for monthly must-reads. April's question is: What's your best beauty tip/secret (aside from: drinking lots of water, wearing sunscreen and taking off your make-up at night).

For me, it's all about moisturizing, moisturizing, moisturizing! I think I look and feel my best when my skin is fresh and dewy. Although I use Makeup For Ever's HD Powder to set my makeup, I finish off with a good spray of Urban Decay's All Nighter or MAC Fix+. Not only does my makeup last longer throughout the day, but it also gives me a dose of hydration that leaves my face glowing. I don't like looking shiny, but I also hate looking dry. Taking good care of your skin and moisturizing every morning and evening is so important to me now that I'm in my late twenties.


Clinique Moisturizing Gel, MAC Fix+, and Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado



Now for this month's must-reads:







    What are some of your beauty tips?

  1. I really agree with the importance of moisturization - I had to give up moisturizers for 3 months when I first started acne treatments - and I think it created forehead lines. When I went back to using moisturizer, the lines diminished, but I bet they wouldn't have formed in the first place if I had kept using moisturizer...the old wrinkle-acne trade-off LOL!

    1. It is a horrible trade off isn't it? Your skin looks great though, I've never noticed any lines at all!

  2. I agree! I had to stop using moisturizers before my laser treatments but I started using it again just because it seemed wrong not using any moisture on my face (that's where my esthetician and I disagree). I think the fine lines are so much more less noticeable when I use the moisturizer.

    1. Yes, I definitely notice a difference when I don't use lotion or moisturizer. My skin looks older, and very dull. I'd be lost without it! I'll remember to ask my esthetician her opinion.

  5. You are so right about moisturizing! Hydration is the key to supple looking skin--I couldn't agree more.

  6. Moisturizing is so important, I couldn't agree more. I've become so serious about it now that I'm in my late twenties but it's all about prevention.

    1. I LOVE it! I'm on my second jar, and it's so creamy and hydrating. I highly recommend it, especially if you are new to eye creams. I'm also using another super moisturizing eye cream by a company called Elevenskin. I'm reviewing that one on the blog soon:)

  12. Moisturizing is definitely a must!! I've never tried the UD setting spray but I've found that applying primer under foundation makes a huge difference! x www.casualglamorous.com
