Today I wanted to share with you what my favorite beauty products are and what I use on a daily basis. Honestly, I am not a huge makeup fan. I really don’t like anything on my skin except for lotion. On the weekends, I try not to put anything on, but during the week I have to put something on for work. Here is what I use on a daily basis for an easy-breezy natural everyday look.
First, I wash my face using this facial cleanser. This was recommended to me by my dermatologist since I have acne-prone skin. I love this stuff. I cleanse my face with this twice a day and it doesn’t dry my skin out. It also does a great job of taking off all my makeup.
Once I have a clean face, I massage in Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion. I received this product in a FabFitFun box and I absolutely love it! I am so impressed with this face lotion. It’s gentle on my skin, light-weight and is an oil-free, shine-free moisturizer. It’s safe for acne-prone skin too.
I then use Obagi Medical ELASTIderm Eye Serum. This product was recommended to me by my dermatologist and helps soothe under-eye puffiness first thing in the morning. The rollerball applicator is easy to use, just roll it under your eye and you’ll feel instantly awake. The rollerball is always cold and it helps my tired eyes open up.
The serum strengthens delicate skin, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles and diminishes dark circles. The serum contains caffeine which helps alleviate the under-eye puffiness. I love this product and I am so addicted to it. I highly recommend you get this and you’ll see what I mean!
Next, I apply my foundation. I have been using this Juice Beauty Foundation in Cream for a while now and I love it. Before you apply, you’ll need to shake this up as it can separate and be a bit watery but it is easy to apply and makes my skin feel so healthy. Juice Beauty makes all their beauty products from organic fruits and veggies. You can learn more here.
For my eyes, I apply this Juice Beauty Concealer in Buff underneath my eyes. It’s super creamy, lightweight and can be easily applied with either your finger or brush. This too is made with organic fruits, veggies, and vitamins so it’s perfectly safe for underneath your eyes.
For the longest time, I couldn’t line my eyes with eyeliner because everything I bought was just impossible to use until I found this Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Hustle. O-M-G, this was a game changer! It is so easy to apply and now I can line my eyes every day in a matter of a couple of minutes. If you were having the same issue as me, I highly recommend you try this product, it’s worth every penny.
I then finish my eyes with some mascara. I curl them first and then I apply Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara. I received this in a FabFitFun box last year and I love this product. The double feature brush really does an excellent job of coating each and every eyelash. It adds length to my eyelashes and gives me a supernatural look. This mascara also conditions your lashes with Shea, Murumuru, Mango, and Cupuacu butter and contains Vitamin B to help your lashes grow. It also does a good job by staying put. Some mascara’s I’ve used in the past wasn’t so great with this and by the end of the day, I was left with black flakes under my eyes.
Lastly, I finish my face with bronzer. I like this Cargo_HD one in Bronze. I’m not going to lie – this too came in a FabFitFun box and I have been using it since last Summer. This bronzer has just the right amount of shimmer in it and does a great job of adding some natural color to my cheeks and forehead. It’s definitely my favorite bronzer thus far.
That about sums it up. During the work week, I am a bit of a minimalist when it comes to makeup. Sometimes if I am short on time my 4 must-use products will be Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion, Obagi Eye Serum, Juice Beauty Foundation and Eye Concealer. Depending on what I do over the weekend, I am running around makeup free but if I go somewhere special I’ll add some lip color using this lip palette. Learn more about it here.
