Lisa is a 27 year old from Columbus, Ohio. She has very fair skin that tends to be "combination," and much oilier in the summer. Lisa's heritage is rather mixed - mostly Hungarian, with some Scottish and French mixed in with a dash of Native American. Strangely enough, her very fair skin tans like nobody's business, so she has to be careful and wear plenty of sunscreen. Her skin is also not really sensitive, except on her nose. Lisa has green eyes with lots of gold, and red hair (not naturally, though - she's been coloring it a subtle auburn since she was 15). Lisa's main beauty concerns are puffy, sensitive eyes, and blackheads on her nose.

Exfoliant (AM) - Origins "Never a Dull Moment". I use this lusciously-scented scrub every morning in the shower-it works 2 ways - apricot seeds gently remove dead skin skins, while papaya enzyme re-surfaces. It also REALLY helps with blackheads on the nose.

Cleanser (PM) - Origins Mint Wash or La Mer Cleansing Gel. Both of these products do an excellent job of removing makeup, dirt, and excess sebum while maintaining moisture and a soft, smooth feel.

Toner (AM and PM) - Clinique Clarifying Lotion #2. I have been using this product for about 12 years now. It has the perfect amount of "oomph" needed to exfoliate and control any excess oil, but doesn't strip the skin. I've tried other toners, but I always return to Clinique.

Moisturizer (Day) - I always use an SPF moisturizer under my makeup, no matter what the time of year! Currently, I use Avon Luminosity, and am pleased with the results. Avon's patented "Diamonex" complex smoothes skin and adds a rosy glow while protecting with full-spectrum SPF. I also love Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion and Oil of Olay Complete.

Moisturizer (night) - Creme de La Mer Emulsion Lotion (either regular or oil-free, depending on the time of year and the attitude of my skin!). This moisturizer is absolutely amazing! I admit my addiction. This moisturizer makes your complexion so smooth and rosy, while helping to clear up blemishes and discoloration. It's a splurge, but the results are worth it!

Eye Cream (Day) - Origins Eye Doctor. This lightweight lotion cools and refreshes, and it won't make your mascara run! It also helps concealer to go on smoothly and comfortably.

Eye Cream (Night) - Creme de La Mer (the original cream) - While this super lotion is just too moisturizing for my entire face, it makes a PERFECT eye cream for night. Visibly diminishes dark circles and little lines; it even makes your eyelashes grow a bit longer and thicker!

Mask - Tipton Charles AHA mask. I love this effective mask for all-over exfoliating, and helping to clear up blackheads on the nose. It is extremely effective, yet gentle enough for sensitive skin! The visible results of this mask last for at least 4 days. A super-performer, in my opinion.

Cream/Liquid - Almay Skin Stays Clean oil-free compact foundation. This foundation easily compares with much more expensive foundations...it goes on smoothly with light to medium coverage, and perfects without looking at all heavy. It's oil-free formula won't cake or appear dry.

Powder - MAC Studio Fix. A classic mainstay of my collection. Studio Fix perfects while looking totally natural...perfect for times of the year when my skin is oilier (basically any season but winter :)
