Mary Kay's Tinted Moisturizer~
What a find!

A few years ago, I went through a time when I worried that my face was really starting to show age. Although I mostly noticed “crow’s feet” and other small wrinkles under my eyes, I also started seeing ugly brown age spots thanks to years in the hot Sacramento, California sun. Then one day I discovered tinted moisturizer and instantly learned how to “hide” those little issues!

I had sought out my friend Christina for a mini makeover at the time. As a longtime Mary Kay consultant (and former director) I had faith that perhaps she could help me find a new eye shadow or eyeliner that could brighten my eyes and take the focus off of the “uglies” that were staring at me in the mirror. But what she suggested was even better!

I had already informed her that I didn’t like to spend much time getting ready in the morning. Moreover, I let her know that I hated wearing foundation.

We did a quick facial then she had me try Mary Kay’s Tinted Moisturizer With Sunscreen SPF 20 and I loved it! There was no turning back from there.

The simple morning Mary Kay beauty ritual she created for me is quick and easy!

  • First, I wash my face with MK’s TimeWise 3-in-1 Cleanser (normal to dry).
  • Next comes one of my favorite products, MK TimeWise Age-Fighting Eye Cream. This product goes on light and absorbs quickly.
  • Then, I put on a light layer of MK’s TimeWise Age-Fighting Moisturizer. I allow it to soak in for a few minutes then move on to the next step.
  • Finally it’s time for my MK Tinted Moisturizer! I put on a light layer (even on my eye lids as it helps to brighten my very fair skin tone!) and instantly look younger than I did prior to application. The tinted moisturizer acts as foundation does by hiding minor (and not so minor) imperfections but is a better fit for people who don’t like the feel of “make up” on their face. The SPF 20 is an important added bonus!
  • I finish with mascara on a daily basis, sometimes add a bit of eye shadow, and always have MK’s Satin Lips lip balm or Chapstick on my lips if I’m waiting for a Mary Kay order to arrive.
(I repeat steps 1 through 3 at bedtime as well).

I highly recommend tinted moisturizer if you too want to look years younger with one simple beauty product.  Try Mary Kay’s like I did (I’ll now be a Mary Kay Girl forever!) or look for one from your favorite cosmetic line!

Some of you may wonder WHY I use an age-fighting moisturizer AND a tinted moisturizer. I choose to do this because my skin is very dry. This way I use a solid moisturizer and am then able to use only a light layer of the tinted product as I'm not relying on it as my only moisturizer. This combo works well for me :)

I always love to hear/read the positive comments about Mary Kay. I have been using it for about 1 1/2 years now and absolutely love it! So much so that I decided to become a consultant. I use the Time Wise Miracle Set along with the Firming Eye Cream daily. I then use the Mineral Powder as foundation, eye liner and mascara. Love it all! I can honestly say I am very happy with the results I get from my Mary Kay products. If you have never tried it, call a consultant near you for a complimentary facial.
Thanks Kim!
