Skincare First, Makeup Second


Acne. Acne scars. Regular scars. Dryness. Flakiness. Wrinkles. Enlarged pores. Sun spots. The list of skin problems that women have come to us with in the hopes that they’ll be fixed by makeup is endless. Any fellow makeup artist can certainly sympathize. While we do what we can, there is only so much to be done for certain texture problems. So to all consumers looking for miracles at a makeup counter, here’s the harsh reality: it’s just not going to happen.

Makeup is only meant to enhance your natural beauty, not to cover up imperfections or hide your flaws. And with poor or neglectful skincare, makeup will never fully enhance your skin or give you the effect you want it to. With that being said, good makeup application does not start with good quality brushes, top-pick makeup, or even mastery of application techniques. It starts with good skincare. This is something we like to remind our makeup clients of and is what inspired us to bring skincare into SOHO Lashes. So now introducing…..

marioFor many reasons, good skincare can often take the back burner in our lives. A lot of people tend to think that you have to pay steep prices for a working product. And while it is true that several high-end products are equally effective as they are costly, there are some great low-cost options. Mario Badescu is definitely one of them. Rather than spending the extra money on packaging and branding, Mario Badescu maintains a very simple package for their product, which is part of what allows such a low price point for the botanically-based line.

On top of the affordable price, Mario Badescu takes a very customized approach to skincare, as its creator realized that proper skincare routines must be adjusted to fit the individual needs of the consumer. And with 200+ different products, there is something for everyone, with any skin need.

Don’t take our word for it, though; The proof is most definitely in the pudding. For what other reason would the glowing faces of Charlize Theron, Eva Longoria, Angela Bassett, and countless other celebrity clients be bathed in Mario Badescu products so religiously? Stop by SOHO Lashes and see for yourself 😉
