Make Up Routine

I love to wear makeup, but I am gluten free, so it can be tricky to find things that I can use.  I read the labels carefully before I buy it and I also make sure that I can return it if it doesn't work.  It took me a few years to realize that not only do I have to cut gluten from my diet, but also from my makeup/skincare!  I also had to learn, that just because a product is gluten free the first time you buy it, it may not be the next.  That is why I check the label and products everytime I buy them.

Because it is winter, this is the soap I am using to wash my face right now.  When summer comes, I will change it because my skin won't be quite as dry.  It is mild and I don't get any breakouts from it. Always a good thing!

 After I wash my face in the morning, I use this moisturizer.  I found out about this, when I received it as a sample and just loved it!  It is a good moisturizer, smells good and gives my skin a little extra color.  I use the color nude glow.

After I have moisturized, I use this foundation and apply it with a beauty blender.  For my blush, I use Nars that you can find here.

At night, after I wash my face, I use this moisturizer and it works really well!  It is expensive, but a little goes a long way and a jar may last over a year!

It is so hard to find things that work and are also gluten free!  I often ask the salesperson that I am buying from if the product is gluten free and many times they don't really understand what I am talking about, or they act like I am from another planet...it is so funny!  Gluten goes by many names in products and if the label says "plumping" don't buy it if you are gluten free!  Most of the time a wheat product is used to plump up skin and if you are gluten free, be prepared to have an allergic reaction!

I hope this post helps my gluten free friends as well as those who are just looking for some good skin care products.

Have a great day and I'll be back next week!
