MY RECIPE FOR GREAT SKIN WITH CLINIQUE

Hola amigas!
For today's post I am sharing a side of goodness for your skin and mine! 
I wanted to get a little creative with this post and when thinking of ways to change it up a bit I loved the idea of relating our beauty products to the same way we care for our bodies. 
Whatever we feed ourselves has a true effect on our health and lives. 
Well my ladies, same goes for your face. Therefore, today I am dishing on some tips and 
a little review on my favorite Clinique products.
If you recall I shared my experience at the Clinique counter a couple of weeks ago here.
And today I get a little more detailed on why I love the products. 
I hope you enjoy! Bon appetite!

I've been using the products for the past few weeks and I wanted to share my favorites. I am positively sure that you are all familiar with Clinique's 3-Step System. At my consultation I was told I was a combination dry skin, meaning I am a number "2". If you haven't had a skin care consultation, that's definitely where you should start in order to get exactly what you need for everyday use and to tackle areas of concern. Stop by any Clinique counter, you won't be disappointed.
I've been using the Facial Liquid Soap, the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion and my Clarifying Lotion religiously, these 3 are my go-to, they are the holy grail when it comes to Clinique products. And that's because they truly are amazing and what is best, affordable and you see results, fast. I love it! I love that although it's a few products, it is still super simple to use and totally effective. And that's exactly what I need now a days; quick + true. 
...
One little tip my skin consultant shared with me at my counter visit last month, was something I was totally guilty of. A lot of people have the wrong perception of the Clarifying Lotion, they use it as a toner and that is exactly what it is not. She explained that this is truly a lotion in liquid form that is meant to clarify your skin while sweeping away the impurities and dirt so that your moisturizer can do its job to the best of its abilities. Like myself, a lot of women use it incorrectly too. All you really have to do is dab your cotton ball or pad with the Clarifying Lotion and simply "swipe" all over the face, once, without rubbing it on. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clear. 
...
As far as the makeup goes, I really have enjoyed trying new products. Especially the Chubby Stick and the Pop Lip in the bold bright colors for this summer season. My favorite? The foundation and mascara for everyday use. The foundation is light enough not to make you look like you have makeup on and it provides enough coverage for an everyday natural makeup look, which if you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat you know I love natural looks for day to day. 
A great tip for mascara lovers like myself... use a few coats depending on the occasion. If I am going out for errands or a lunch I use 2-3 coats. If I am using it for a night out I like to apply at least 4 coats of mascara. But be sure not to let it dry, this is what causes clumps and lumps! 
...
I truly enjoyed this collaboration and I am so happy I was able to share a brand I genuinely love and have used not just now but in the past as well. Are there any preferred products you use? I recommend starting with the skin care (hello! 3-Step System!) and moving right on to makeup. 
You won't regret it! Have a sweet week amigas!
