Beauty Routine: My current must have's

Friday, August 18, 2017

I wanted to share my current beauty favorites with you.  I have been getting tons of questions about what I am using and what my favorite products are, this is something that is normally ever changing
since I am a makeup junkie!  I have extremely oily skin that is prone to breakouts, especially in the summer.  So when it comes to products that go on my face I am very picky.

For skin care I have found a really good routine that I have been sticking with for the last few months.

Morning routine: I alternate between two cleansers Hard Night Good Morning's AM Cleanser and Ole Henricksen Oil Control Cleanser.  Once out of the shower I mist HNGM Detox toner, and apply Asterwood Naturals Vitamin C serum then finish with HNGM L22 Elixir (not currently available) and eye cream.

Evening routine:  I use the Hard Night Good Morning PM Oil Cleanser followed by the Detox toner on a cotton ball to remove any leftover makeup.  Then I apply the L22 Elixir and finish with the Hard Night Good Morning Nighttime moisturizer (new formula not currently available) and eye cream (y'all this eye cream).  I also try and use a sheet or mineral mask once a week to help remove impurities or target things like dryness or redness.

Makeup:  I always prep my face with a primer, sometimes I will use the Hard Night Good Morning Serum or I will use the Maybelline primer that targets redness.  Then I follow with my Estee Lauder Double wear foundation in Wheat (summer color) and Ivory Beige (winter color).  If I plan to be outside in the heat I will set this with the Estee Lauder Double wear powder in medium- I always use a beauty blender to apply my foundation.

Next I focus on my eyes, I am 100% loving the new Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette, you can easily take it from day to night, and the colors are magnificent.  Once I finish my shadow I apply the shape tape concealer under my eyes and in my T-zone.  I set this with the NYX HD finishing powder in banana.

I then will contour my face using either the Benefit Cheek Pallet using the original hoola shade or the bronzer color in the Chrissy Teigen Becca palette.  Once finished I will take the blush shade from the Becca palette and apply it to my cheeks along with the highlight from the same palette.  I will set everything with the Urban Decay D-slick spray- my only complaint is that this stuff stinks!

Lastly I finish up my eyes, I tackle my crazy brows with the Anastasia Brow pencil in dark brown, and use the Rimmel liner to tightline my eyelids.  I love this liner because it's cheap and also is perfect for blending out with the little applicator on the opposite end.  Depending on how glam I want to look I will add the L'Oreal primer and then finish with two coats of the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara.

As I walk out the door I swipe my trusty YSL or Revlon Matte lipstick for my day to day look.  This might seem like a lot but trust me I can do my makeup in just under 10 min.

The tools I use for my face: Beauty Blender and the Spectrum Collection Makeup Brushes (so soft and worth the splurge).
