How I avoid makeup separation

I love makeup, always have, always will, but the older I get, the more complicated I feel like makeup has become. I rarely wear a full face of makeup, so when I put in the effort, and my makeup separates, I feel personally victimized. It happens so often, and it’s such a waste of expensive makeup. So I did some research (and watched several TikToks) to figure out how to avoid this. Here is what I learned:  Makeup has one of three bases – water, silica, or oil. When you mix water-based and oil-based (or any combination), you risk separation. I audited my makeup (primer, foundation, concealer, cream contour, and setting spray). I looked up the ingredients of every product, and it turns out that overwhelmingly, my favorite products are water/silicone based (the ingredients list water and dimethicone.) Allegedly, if my primer, foundation, concealer, and setting spray are all the same base, this won’t happen.  I have linked these products below. But – be mindful that when using these products, the best tools are your fingers, a beauty blender wet with the setting spray (not water) or a synthetic brush.  My only goal in life is to look like a Kardashian and this information has me one step closer. Stop my favorite water/silicone-based products below!

ready to make it Rain{ka}?

I'm an award-winning, expert attorney in Jacksonville, Florida. I represent professional women and their families who are injured or arrested in Florida. I love my job and am proud to have a career, but when I became a mother, I learned that working moms are uniquely tasked with having to achieve "balance." (whatever that is.) What I really wanted was freedom - freedom to practice law in a way that works for me and my family. Through the support and advice of other working moms, I have found success by developing a personal brand that allows me to create my own clients and practice law in a way that gives me freedom. Now it's my turn to help other lawyer moms learn how to do the same and make it Rain(ka).
