FAQ: beauty favorites

Been getting ALOT of questions about my beauty and skincare routine (tutorial on both coming soon!), but wanted to give you guys a breakdown of my favorite beauty products right now. I’m constantly trying new products, but these are some of my go-to’s and best recent finds. You can shop everything below!

 

SKINCARE

Odacite’s Green Ceremony Cleanser – This stuff is the bomb.com. The cleanser leaves my skin feeling SO fresh and clean and is gentle enough to use everyday. The powder to foam process can be a bit messy, but it’s worth the extra effort.

SkinCeuticals’ Clarifying Exfoliating Cleanser – I recently tried this cleanser and have been OBSESSED. While it’s branded like a cleanser, it’s more like an exfoliant. I use this one every other day as I find it a little too harsh to use everyday. But, it really clears and brightens my skin – and the salicylic acid helps fight breakouts which is a HUGE plus.

Jane Scrivner Skinfoliate – Now this stuff I use every damn day, twice a day! I am almost out so will need to re-up soon. It really cleans out your pores and leaves your skin feeling super smooth. I’ve also noticed that my skin discoloration has been SO much better since I started using it. Plus, it smells amazing.

Medicine Mama’s Apothecary Ultra Beauty Balm – If you have been following me for awhile, you know that my obsession with Medicine Mama’s Bee Magic is REAL. The Beauty Balm gives a deep nourishing moisture so I tend to put this on at night before bed. If you suffer from dry skin, you will definitely want to try this stuff.

AMOREPACIFIC Eye Treatment Gel – There is nothing I hate more than my dark circles and I’m always trying new products to help fight puffiness and brighten my eyes. I’ve been using this for a few weeks now and have noticed a big difference! My under eyes are extra smooth and much more hydrated.

 

 

MAKEUP

BECCA Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer – Another under eye favorite. This primer is killer at cutting out any redness or puffiness under your eyes, but my favorite thing is the smoothness that gives your skin. Avoid the makeup creases and that cakey look with this stuff!

Vapour Organic Beauty’s Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation and Luminous Foundation – I’m SO happy that I was introduced to this brand earlier this year. Talk about a GAME CHANGER. I’m super picky about foundation – it has to give me good coverage without feeling like I’m wearing anything – tall order, I know. I love combining these two products because the Luminous Foundation gives me more of a matte cover on my T-zone, while the Soft Focus Foundation gives off a more natural look. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Sculpting Kit – Contouring made easy! I love the color and the matte look that these two powders give. The tones are super neutral and subtle so it’s ideal for everyday use.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Double Ended Sculpting Brush – Another one from MAKE UP FOR EVER is this double-ended makeup brush. I love that it’s two-for-one: the angled brush is ideal for contouring and the fuller side is great for powder, blush, and highlighter application.

Ere Perez Beetroot Cheek & Lip Tint – Recently got into this Cheek and Lip Tint and am loving it. When they say tint, it’s NO joke. This stuff is LONG-LASTING. You can add as little or as much as you want though so don’t let the bright color scare you off.

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer – This sheer, cream highlighter is super long-lasting without feeling like you have anything on. It acts as a great highlighter when contouring, but my favorite spot to use this is on my eyes!

BENEFIT COSMETICS Goof Proof Brow Pencil – The easiest eyebrow pencil you’ll ever find. I’m sooo Type A about my eyebrows and making sure they look symmetrical so when I gave this a try I was like AMEN PEOPLE. The applicator tip is the ideal shape for eyebrows and the soft, almost gel-like fill makes it easy to apply.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Pressed Powder – Never underestimate the power of a setting powder! I’ve been addicted to MAKE UP FOREVER’s Setting Powder for years and was SO excited when the made it into a Pressed Powder for easy application. The microfinishing powder reduces shine and gives your skin a smooth, finished look.
