I am just too busy with holiday preparations at this time of year. Like you, I am still rushing around shopping, wrapping and shipping gifts, attending school parties and work lunches, and in general, doubling my work load and time commitments for the month! I find that by the time 5:00 rolls around, I’ve barely glanced in the mirror to check on my makeup for any necessary touch ups. That would have been a problem – until I discovered Mia Mariu cosmetics! Like a great artist preparing a canvas, if you properly prepare your face for makeup, it lasts much, much longer! Mia Mariu offers several amazing products that help you do just that.
First (and maybe most important) you must remove old makeup. It’s crucial to do every single night; it simply can’t be stressed enough. No matter how tired you are, or how long you day has been, this one easy step will vastly improve your look in the morning. The Mia Mariu Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is the perfect solution. Completely oil-free, this makeup remover is incredibly mild. And, because it’s oil-free tomorrow’s makeup will stay put! Retail: $19
Next, it’s time to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Although you may use a heavier cream at night, Mai Mariu offers a wonderful, light moisturizer called Hydrating Anti-Aging Moisturizer with SPF 30, which is perfect for daytime. This moisturizer is so light and absorbs so quickly, that you can continue with your makeup routine with no lengthy waiting for your moisturizer to absorb. Retail $44
Then, I apply Mia Mariu Perfecting Finish Mineral Primer. This primer “sets the stage” for mineral makeup. The Primer is even packed with powerful antioxidants like Lycii Fruit, Aloe, Milk Thistle Extract, White Tea and Vitamin A and E. The resulting look is absolutely flawless – and lasts all day long. Retail $20
All of Mia Mariu’s high-performance cosmetics are formulated with the most natural ingredients available. Each unique product fuses nature and technology by combining the highest quality botanicals, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and peptides. The result is an incredible selection of healthy products that provide professional makeup artist quality – at a price you can afford! The Mia Mariu skincare line is sold at fine retailers, spas and boutiques nationwide.
