Top Summer Skincare & Makeup Essentials for Dry Skin

As a former professional makeup artist, I absolutely loved experimenting with vibrant colors and would use makeup as a way to “hide” and take the attention away from my noticeably larger body, but nowadays, I prefer softer tones that accentuate my features instead of hiding them. I want the world to see me, and see that I’m proud of every curve and “imperfection.” It makes me feel empowered to view makeup as an option instead of a necessity.
