Right now, I’m using Bare Escentuals (well, bareMinerals, I guess) Deep Foaming Cleanser to cleanse, Renee Rouleau’s Elderberry Toner to tone, followed by Differin (prescription), and finally bareMinerals Nourishing Cream for Dry Skin to moisturize.
If it’s a random stranger, I probably wouldn’t say anything. To a friend, I’ll take them aside to tell them if their foundation doesn’t match, eyeliner is running, and so on. However, if it may be their taste vs. my taste, then I don’t say anything.
If they didn’t use any kind of skincare regimen, I think I’d start there. Who doesn’t want better skin? As far as makeup goes, mascara makes a big difference with minimal effort.
