Get Ready With Me (Last Night's Makeup)

Had the pleasure of getting together with some great friends over the weekend (most of which I had been friends with since grade school and high school!) and I filmed my getting ready process.
These videos remain some of my favourite to watch and film.


I had to bust out my "highest coverage" foundation that I own - Bourjois Healthy Mix - due to the fact that this month I had some sort of reaction to something (still trying to figure out what) and I had some of the worst breakouts around my chin that I've had in the past couple of years!
Some pin-point concealing and "Holy Grail" products definitely helped to clean up the mess.
I didn't show it in the video, but I did prime my skin with La Roche Posay "Cicaplast" - which is a dermal recovery complex aimed at stressed out/damaged skin and is supposed to aid in regeneration. I always turn to it when my skin is reacting badly to something or is over-dried from harsh acne-fighting ingredients. 
Oh and I also caved and ordered Alpha H Liquid Gold, which is a glycolic acid type of serum, in hopes of it helping me clear out the acne scar mess that I will be left with after these breakouts!!
I'll be sure to keep you updated in the coming weeks.
Here's the video:

  4. You look beautiful, as always, Sandra! I can't wait for your review of the Alpha H Liquid Gold. I keep going back and forth as to whether I should order it. I've tried a bunch of things you've recommended and they've all worked for me (I have the same/similar skin type as you)!

    I got curious - what nail polish are you wearing in this video - is it Chanel Frenzy?
