You probably have loads of better things to worry about right now. But stick with me for a few minutes and I promise to make it worth your time.
We’re flooded with thousands of new products daily, so it might get hard to choose from all you see given the fact that our eyes can interpret 30 frames per second. That’s ridiculous! But it’s also true!
I wanted to share the beauty routine I’m currently obsessed with, and at the same time, give you several options to turn to… If I’m bananas over something you’re not, it’s cool! There are always options.
This is going to be for you, but suggestions are welcome. Let’s talk beauty essentials and what’s happening in my daily routine.
Shop the products:
La Roche Posay Effaclar Toner, Thayers Rose Water, Le Jour de Chanel, La Roche Posay Daily Moisturizer, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (Vanilla), Marc Jacobs Eyeliner Crayon, Chanel Le Volume Mascara and Hourglass Ambient Lighting Surreal Edit, Beauty Blender in Nude and Zoeva 127 Blush Brush.
I always start by washing my face with warm water. It’s great to open the pores, which means everything you apply after will be better absorbed.
This will forever be my answer to the question, “what would you take on a deserted island”? My trusty Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade vanilla. I apply this to the entire area below my forehead – instead of foundation. It covers what needs to be covered and works wonders. My complexion is very light, so vanilla is the best option for me.
After brushing my eyebrows, I hardly do anything else; I then gently and lightly apply the Marc Jacobs Eyeliner Crayon. For ultimate and long-lasting results, make sure you dab the tip in water before applying it. I tend not to go overboard – just enough to make my eyes pop after applying concealer.
I use the Zoeva 127 Blush Brush to contour my face and apply blush. This Hourglass Ambient Lighting Surreal Edit is amazing – it’s an all-in-one. Even though I have separate facial products, I just fell in love with the practicality of this one.
Mascara – can’t leave the apartment without it, but it’s less essential than concealer. I always try to use just a bit, and only go overboard when I need a dramatic eye. But the Chanel Le Volume Mascara is my go-to, after trying out others. It’s perfect for keeping my eyelashes healthy.
