We all want flawless skin.
However, in a time when there’s a new beauty product or skincare regimen marketed to us almost every other day, it may be difficult to know where to begin, what to buy or if it works.
“Glow Up with…” is a new series where we get skincare tips, tricks and product recommendations from some of Trinidad and Tobago’s best MUAs.
Teshea Lloyd, founder and lead makeup artist of More Than Makeup, shares her own skincare routine as well as her go-to products.
Teshea Lloyd’s Top Skincare Tip
“Do what works best for your skin type,” she says. “Look for products that are specific to your skin type and wash with a cleanser for 60 seconds so the cleanser has time to do its work.”
