It’s been almost three years since my last skincare/beauty routine breakdown and thought I would share all the products that I rely on now for keeping my skin looking its best! From cleansers to face masks to my everyday make-up, I’m sharing every step and product you need to learn about and try!
I still only wash my face with warm water and then a splash of cold water to help wake my skin up in the morning. I don’t like using cleansers in the morning because I feel like it dries out my skin so just a little water does the trick! If I have a shoot or a big meeting that day, I love to to apply Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox Hydra-Gel Eye Patches or Bliss Eye Got This Holographic Foil Eye Masks to help with any puffy eyes. Another key product in helping with a puffy face in the morning is the Ice Roller I always rave about. A few minutes of ice rolling and you’ll look so well rested.
Next, I follow up with a few drops of SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum on my face and neck. Three years later, this product still is my number one go-to and truly believe it makes such a difference with my skin and worth the investment. If my skin is extra dry, I may add a few drops of SkinCeuticals H.A. Intensifier as well which is another one of their holy grail products. Finally, to create a smooth and hydrated base, I use the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask as my primer. I’ve raved before how it’s one of my favorite products and I think it makes such a difference on how my makeup goes on.
It all depends on the day on how heavy my make-up may be but overall I keep things pretty light and natural when it comes to my daily routine! Since my routine rarely changes, I can do this routine in about five minutes! Overall, natural and glowy is always my goal when it comes to my makeup.
- Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in Peach (for dark circles) and Green (for redness on my nose and any blemishes)
- It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ for my entire face. Super lightweight and great for everyday! If I need to have a little heavier coverage, I mix in Urban Decay Naked Skin All Nighter Foundation as well.
- KKW Beauty Concealer on my nose, under eyes and chin.
- Urban Decay Eyeshadows in Vanilla (inner corners and middle of the eye) and Half Baked (outer corner).
- Lancome Cils Booster XL Vitamin-Infused Mascara Primer (one swipe makes all the difference) and Peter Thomas Roth Lashes To Die For Mascara (creates the best long lashes!).
- Urban Decay Brow Beater Brow Pencil to fill in my brows.
- Laura Geller Baked Body Frosting Bronzer across my whole face (the best natural glow!).
I like showering at night to help make sure I get all my makeup off (and there’s nothing better than jumping into bed all fresh from the shower right?!). I use Garnier’s Gentle Sulfate-Free Cleanser in the shower and then once or twice a week, I exfoliate with Bliss’ Micro Magic Microdermabrasion Scrub which help makes my skin super smooth and get rid of any flakiness.
Once my skin is clean, I use Garnier SkinActive Micellar Eye Makeup Remover Cotton Pads to get all my eye makeup off and then Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Pads, which get my skin super clean and help with preventing any future breakouts. If I do have any breakouts, I spot treat with SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense which is incredible in helping reduce redness and size of any breakout.
For my nighttime moisturizing, I use Goop Perfecting Eye Cream, Goop Enriching Face Oil and then depending if my skin is a little more dry, will use the Goop Replenishing Night Cream before the oil for extra hydration! Always make sure to add oil after a cream to make sure you’re sealing everything in!
Face masks are my absolute favorite and I switch between a few each week. Depending on my needs of the week, I try to do two to three masks a week. A few favorites below!
Bliss Hangover Fix Holographic Foil Sheet Mask: Super hydrating and the fun silver holographic pattern make for a fun spa night (or hungover morning) with your girlfriends.
SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque: This is my favorite for a really deep clean, great for any under the skin breakouts.
Snow Fox Artic Breeze Mask: This all natural skincare brand from Korea makes some of the best sheet masks around and this one is my favorite thanks to the immediate cooling effect.
Rodial Pink Diamond Lifting Face Mask: These pretty pink masks both hydrate and firm the skin, making them a great one to use before applying your make-up.
L’Oreal Paris Exfoliate & Refine Pores Pure Clay Mask: One of my favorite drugstore masks (under $10!) that exfoliates and polishes your skin for an extra smooth glow.
Joanna Vargas Forever Glow Anti-Aging Face Mask: The most luxe and hydrating sheet mask around! A must for any special day.
Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask: I love how smooth and glowy my skin feels after this mask, thanks to the natural scrub from the cranberry seeds.
TONYMOLY I’m Real Sheet Mask: I always stock up on these $3 sheet masks from Urban Outfitters. With so many different ones for every skincare concern, you’ll never feel guilty using these!
