My Skinspiration – NARS at Phillip Lim NYFW

Although NYFW has been long gone, I remain inspired by the images I see floating around online. Thankfully, BeautyPress caught this one because the skin at Phillip Lim NYFW SS2015 blew me away! I caught myself evaluating my own skin care routine and the level of love I really show my skin.

During this year I’ve used DermOrganic, The Aloe Source and a couple other skin care brands which I loved, but none so far has developed into a full fledged skin care routine. Now don’t get me wrong, I take care of my skin, but as a beauty writer that’s constantly trying new things, I find myself yearning to have my “I’ll love you forever” product, while still leaving love for new products of course.

For the show, lead artist Francelle Daly for NARS Cosmetics describes the look as:

“There is a lot of see-through transparency and airiness to the collection – I wanted that to come through in the makeup. My inspiration is sensuality; the way the morning light hits you as you wake up in your bedroom, with sensual skin beaming with rays of light. I highlighted the cheek bones, high planes of the face and the bridge of the nose to accentuate and bring out that glow in each girl.”

And yes, we know, it’s makeup. Always remember that good makeup starts with good skin. I started using Dior’s Capture Totale Serum for Face & Eyes and pleased so far. It’s too early in the game to determine whether this can take the spot of my go to skin care, however, in the mean time, I am currently auditioning for the part of “Jaleesa’s Favorite Daily Sunscreen” So far we have 3 contenders and I will be sure to let you know who wins.

1. KIEHL’S SUPER FLUID UV DEFENSE SPF 50+

2. PHILOSOPHY HOPE – OIL FREE

3. LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS 60 ULTRA LIGHT SUNSCREEN FLUID EXTREME
