This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

I’m the first to admit that I don’t have perfect skin. It has never been… and I don’t’ know many people (other than our kids!) who do have perfect skin in adulthood.

It makes sense. We spend our days in the sun, in the wind, surrounded by different things in the air, using makeup, etc… so our skin is bound to be less-than-perfect.

For people, like me, with dry skin… using makeup with a moisturizer is just asking for trouble.

We all know that dry skin can be an issue, as it will just cause problems with our makeup application. The point of makeup is to make our skin look smooth and even, but when we are dealing with dry skin, it will just make our face look flaky. It makes those imperfections stand out, instead of being concealed. Plus, the time that it then takes to remove the makeup, wash my face and do it all again (this time remembering to apply my Olay Whips) is just not worth it. I end up wishing I had just done it right the first time.

I watched a show last week, where they were interviewing a makeup artist.

When asked what the secret was to beautifully applied makeup: She said that “the most important thing to remember when applying makeup is to use a moisturizer first.”

Olay Whips is a perfect choice, with the Active Rush Technology that holds and releases all the hydration upon contact with the natural salts in your skin.

Using Olay Whips means that we don’t have to wear a heavy-feeling formula because now this is light & still provides as much moisturizer or more. After you’ve used it, you can use your makeup. It’s like a primer. When you have a smoother, softer surface for applying makeup, your makeup will go on beautifully.

Trying to get your foundation to work alone doesn’t work. Moisturizer is makeup’s secret weapon, and it’s what makes it look great. Plus, when using Olay Whips, you don’t have to wait for it to dry before applying your makeup. I like to put my makeup on directly after because it helps my foundation spread better and it gives you a dewy finish. It absorbs the oils in your skin, to keep your face feeling smooth.

You can choose from any of the Olay Whips:
1. Regenerist: Powerful Wrinkle Results Without Heaviness. Regenerist reduces the look of fine lines & wrinkles while hydrating the skin & improving elasticity.
2. Total Effects: Ultimate Nourishment Without Weight because it evens skin tone appearance & enhances brightness. Plus, it reduces dark spots & wrinkles. I love that the VitaNiacin Complex II and Vitamins C & E to fights the early signs of aging.
3. Luminous: Lasting Radiance Without Shine. It minimizes the appearance of pores.

You can find your Whips from Ulta, here.
