Get Ready With Us | Feat. Bestie @Shelbyyrsimmons

If you missed us LIVE- NO WORRIES! I've linked all of our faves from the video right here!

Now, let me introduce you to my friend @shelbyyrsimmons. If you are new here, Shelby is one of my besties and you will def see her time to time on the blog but mostly as a model for my online store!

Shelby is my skincare/ beauty queen! If I ever have a beauty question or concern, she is my go- to girl! Anything from tanner, to anti-aging. She's got you.

Shelby's skin type: Normal to dry skin

My skin is different from Shelby's which makes this post even better! Everyone's skin type is so different and calls for different skincare routines and makeup products. One thing may be great for Shelby, but not so great on my skin and vise versa!

My skin is normal to oily...some days are "shinier" than others lol. I also have very sensitive skin. One wrong product and I'm breaking out. I like to keep my skincare routine very simple and the acne AWAY.

Those of you with oily skin- who else thought the dryer your skin felt the better? too. TOTAL LIES. Moisturizing is the #1 thing you can do for all skin types INCLUDING those with oily skin.

Alex's skin type: Normal to oily skin

A rescue cream and a great moisturizer to use helping with anti aging. Helps dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles.

My skincare

1. Tula Purifying Face Cleanser or Tula Super Calm Gentle Milk Cleanser

Currently I am using the purifying cleanser, but I have used the Milk Cleanser as well and love. The Gentle Milk Cleanser is great if you have very sensitive skin.
