Priming Skin for Makeup.

One of the most important steps in your makeup routine is probably the most overlooked -- your skincare. Really. For makeup to look its best, skin has to look it's best. It is super important to prime skin for makeup by making sure it is in the best possible condition by using the proper skin care. The right products can do things like reduce the appearance of pores, fines lines and wrinkles and smooth skin prior to makeup application.

Prime Skin for Makeup with Skin Care

Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex instantly relaxes the look of wrinkles as it is applied to my skin so my skin looks better prior to applying makeup. This daily moisturizer also plumps my skin with a skin hydrating complex to make it look smooth so makeup simply lays better on my skin. My face feels like satin after I apply it and makeup just looks better over it. I pay extra special attention to the places on my face that need a little more attention like my forehead and smile lines. I gently rub a little extra bit of the complex into these areas and it is helping in just a few short weeks.

Another area that needs a lot of attention is my eye area. The skin around the eyes is much thinner and more sensitive than other areas of the face. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Serum Duo does the trick in smoothing my lids and softening the look of the fine lines that I have around my eyes. It is actually two products in one package that takes care of both my eyes and my lashes. I first dab the anti-aging eye cream around my eyes to instantly smooth and firm the area. I see my lines plumps up and filled in. My concealer seems to glide on more evenly after using. Next, I use the lash serum and apply it over my lashes. This ultimate mascara primer instantly thickens and nourishes lashes. It acts as a base (primer) for my mascara and adds that extra layer of thickness I so desire my lashes to have.

I spend so much time on my makeup that it just makes perfect sense to use the proper skincare that works with it.

Olay products can be found at your favorite drugstore or mass retailer.

EXPRESS GLAM: Fragrance for a Sexy Night Out.

You have spent hours upon hours getting ready for a hot night out on the town. You are dressed to the nines. Of course your makeup is looking better than ever and your hair has all fallen into place. One thing is missing though and you can't seem to put your finger on it. I know what it is. That perfect scent. Nothing goes better with a sexy night outfit for your hot night on the town than EXPRESS GLAM.

EXPRESS GLAM Fragrance

Feminine and fun yet luxe, this sexy new scent, the second for EXPRESS, draws inspiration from decades of trendsetting style. Making sure every fashion forward girl looks, feels and smells just as sexy and stylish as she wants to be, this fragrance is the finishing touch to your perfect night out look.

EXPRESS GLAM is definitely a fragrance to be worn out. It combines lush notes of black currant and mandarin vodka with florals like lily of the valley and sandalwood flower then adds creamy musk and white woods to become sexy and sultry. It is one of those scents that lingers and leaves them wondering in all the right ways.

Fragrance Composition

Top Notes: Black Currant, Mandarin Vodka

Mid Notes: Sheer Jasmine Petals, Lily of the Valley, Sandalwood Flower

Base Notes: Praline, Creamy Musk, White Woods

I love the combination of the Praline and Creamy Musk at the base of the fragrance. It gives it that downright sexy scent with the rest of the notes giving it the name it so deserves -- GLAM. It is the perfect accessory you don't want to be without.

EXPRESS GLAM Fragrance

EXPRESS GLAM comes in three sizes; 1.7 oz. for $44.90, 3.4 oz. for $59.90 and there is also a .33 oz. rollerball for $15.90. Doesn't it make the most glamorous stocking stuffer? Shop for EXPRESS GLAM at EXPRESS stores nationwide or at express.com.
