Have perfect skin while traveling with AmazingCosmetics

Whatever we do, wherever we travel, we want to put our best face forward. Before anything else you put on the face the world, you want to have flawless skin. Yeah, I know . . . easier said than done. That's especially true when traveling, when we have disrupted sleep and eating problems, exposure to foreign substances.

I remember one time years ago right after law school, when I had terrible skin issues. Of course, I ran into one of the law school "catches" on the street, who said a friendly hello to me. Knowing my skin was raw, I quickly looked away. I'm sure he thought (and told everyone in town) I was psychotic! You need to have more confidence than that and AmazingCosmetics will help you out. I was happy to be hosted to try it!

The company won the Allure Editor's Choice award in 2005 with their AmazingConcealer. It comes in 20 shades (!), with their slogan being "No Skin Tone Left Behind". It's not just about light, medium and dark, baby! With your skin tone changing from season to season, you may want to get two, for the perfect match at all times. Of course, it comes in a little tube perfect for 3-1-1 carry on travel bags. The thinner cream texture layers on for natural looking coverage. I would use a finger or sponge applicator to apply; I'm not a fan of a brush for this type of consistency -- though they offer one. I like to dot and blend, dot and blend, without hair texture coming into play.

Makeup experts know that you need a primer under makeup, but they're certainly not all created alike! Their Amazing Anti-Aging Primer is clear and sheer, blends in instantly. It's not one of those goopy, opaque primers that beads up and feels like 4 layers of foundation. It will help your cosmetics lay down smoothly and it offers other benefits, too:

Amazing Anti-Aging Primer uses Cassia Angustifolia, an all natural ingredient which hydrates your skin for a full 24 hours. Its lightweight moisturizing technology is safe for all skin types and allows makeup to stay put all day long.
