Beauty By Melina OBSESSIONS
posted on August 19, 2013

For any of you who know me, you understand my ongoing obsession with finding AMAZING BEAUTY PRODUCTS. With my background being in cosmetics I found to be constantly disappointed in the many products I would try. It didn't mean that the products weren't good, all it meant was that they weren't meeting my needs. You may ask "Well what are your needs MELINA?!?" Hmmm where do I start?  I am the daughter of Latin American parents. My mother is fairly light in complexion, somewhat like Snow White and my father has a true Olive skin tone that easily tans. Some would think that may be the best of both worlds and I am not complaining but when it comes to make up and my skin tone it can be an interesting experiment. So I would consider myself a TRUE OLIVE skin tone.  If I stay out of the sun I can look slightly SALLOW,  so I will get some sun once in a while to give me some color.

Now onto my skin texture. I have a combination skin (this is were things get funky). My skin tends to oxidize foundations (slightly making them darker due to my body chemistry) and when I get oily the products on my face will begin to somewhat repel. Did I forget to mention that for the amount of products I use (which fall under a specific list) you would think I don't have sensitive skin but I DO!!!!  

OK-enough complaining!... oh wait I didn't mention brows , lashes and lips ;-) My brows have to be filled in because they are somewhat sparse (if I pluck a hair you will see a gap in the eyebrow shape..lol) and my eyelashes are completely straight therefore if it is not the RIGHT waterproof mascara formula it will NOT WORK to keep them curled. To add to the eyelash scenario .... if I put the wrong type of mascara on my bottom lashes  it will smudge and look like I am cousins with a raccoon. Last but not least  my lips are pigmented so I usually have to work backwards in pigment to neutralize them to create the color lipstick I would like. I will have individual blog posts breaking down my on going journey of trials and errors to how I found what FINALLY WORKS!!!

As of the past few years my goal is to find beauty products that last on the face from when you head out to work and into your evening out for dinner with significant other or friends without having to redo all my make up !!!.... Lets just say my motto is "I DON'T HAVE TIME TO LIE," especially about something that us BEAUTY AFICIONADOS take seriously.

WAIT..... although I take it seriously its not detrimental to fulfilling my happiness in life but it adds to it!! So I will be sharing what I LOVE AND WORKS FOR MY SPECIFIC BEAUTY DESIRES. I am not here to bash any other products. What works for someone else may or may not work for me and visa versa. ONE LAST THING.... I have a mild case of dark circles that needs a daily dose of concealer every day !!! hehehehe
