Welcome to Be Beautiful. Be You., the official blog of Face and Body Shoppe. It’s a blog for every woman, and men too; a blog not by models or makeup artists or skincare specialists – just two women with opinions! And a love of great product that enhances us.
I’m Eve, a 41 year old beauty and skincare expert – not. (The age part is true.) I am not a natural beauty, I’ll admit. I do, however want to Be Beautiful as everyone does. I have always taken good care of my skin but by no means do I have “good” skin. I have to work at it. I started a regular skincare regimen early on (pre wrinkles!), which I am thankful for now. I am strict about my twice daily routine, including cleansers, serums, eye creams, moisturizers and whatever else helps my face look its best. I’m choosy about my makeup. When I try something I like, I tend to stick with it. Because of my less than flawless and fair skin, I have trouble finding just the right shades or having foundation stay put all day. But I’m obsessed with discovering the next best thing – that works for me and hopefully for you.
And I’m Julia. Twenty-eight years old & soon-to-be new mom. I love experimenting with new products until I find something that works for me. When a new line comes out, I am all over it. I have what I like to call “challenging skin.” I live in St. Louis where our weather can be anywhere from extreme heat to extreme cold, and my skin definitely reacts to Mother Nature’s mood swings! In the summer, I get an oily aura, and in the winter I dry up and am prone to eczema. The good news? I’m on the hunt to find products that treat all of my issues, and I will share them with you!
There is no “one size fits all” for skincare or makeup. Together, we will share thoughts and tips, likes and dislikes, and creative unique ways we use the wide variety of products www.faceandbodyshoppe.com has to offer. Follow us as we compare, agree and disagree on what works well for us. Get two perspectives based on our own skin’s individual needs. Have fun experimenting with us. From color, beauty tools, skincare and beyond, we’ll give you the low down on what’s trending now, the latest must-haves and essentials for your makeup bag. And so much more…
Be Beautiful. Be You.
Eve & Julia
