skin + makeup routine

Everyday products that I have bought + used year after year and a couple new items that worked so well I immediately incorporated them! Happy shopping!


Every 10 -14 days I use the PMD and swear by it. Best investment I’ve ever made for my face!

Daily: Run a cotton pad with this Bioderma Micellar Water first. New to this one (Thanks to Kayti! @beyoutybureau) but actually shocked at how well it works. My face hasn’t felt that clean maybe ever. Then wash it with clairsonic + La Roche Posay Gentle Cleanser or an M2 (got it at Spa Trouve and think its only sold at salons!) cleanser that is heavier duty during my period. Hormonal break-outs, fun! Also gotta shout out Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for zits or the COSRX patches for doozies that won’t stop oozing. GROSS, I’m sorry!!

Tone with Rose Toner

Eye Cream from Rodan + Fields

Serum – CEO by Sunday Riley. Awesome!!

Heavier Night Cream – This budget one by St. Ives  is so great and crazy good ratings. If you want a cleaner version Divine’s whole line is wonderful but their Collagen Cream is luxe.

Tint + SPF by Rodial (I wear Hamptons) for no makeup days. I wish I would’ve been better about SPF daily even when not wearing make-up. So many sunspots from sun through my car window. (They’re only on my left side, oof!)

Lip Mask by Laneige

Too Faced Hangover Primer

Eyelid Primer by Urban Decay

Still Stay All Day Eyeliner

Brow Pencil by Etude + Brow Gel by Ardell

Fit Me Foundation (120) – I like the dewy formula because it’s more comfortable to wear all day. If I am doing a shoot or just a dinner or something matte is awesome!

Eyeshadow – I love this Naked Heat palette for blue eyes and use at least one color on it daily.

I love the Stila glitter eyes as well for special occasions!

Contour – For my skin tone I need to keep it light, usually with a grey or ash undertone. If I go too dark or too warm my face just looks dirty! This Kevin Aucoin one is stellar (I use light!)

Blush – I switch it up based on my mood, tan, rest of my make-up look. I always lean towards peach though. Start with this palette, it’s awesome!

HIghlighter – Tried a whole bundle and Becca (Moonstone is my fave!) is still my favorite for consistency and pay-off. This Urban Decay disco stick is fun for a little extra something interesting.

Stila Stay All Day Lip is my favorite formula hands down. It wears comfortably on the skin and the colors are wonderful, too! Beso is an excellent red.

Mascara – Better than Sex by Too Faced. Prettiest featheriest formula that doesn’t fall on me.

HAIR — I wrote this post about it all! in this post!
