Daily Beauty Favorites

I must admit, I have never been great at doing makeup. In fact, back in college, my best friend used to do it for me before we headed out for the night. However, as I have gotten older, I have come to realize the importance of taking good care of my skin. Lately, I have been having a lot of fun experimenting with new beauty products. Since my skin tends to be dry and has some redness (anyone else with fair skin out there?), I have spent a lot of time and money trying out various products to see what works best for me. After many trials and tests, I have finally found what works best for my skin, and I’m excited to share with you some of my go-to daily beauty favorites.

SKIN

As I age, I’ve come to realize the importance of keeping my skin hydrated. I have been using RMS Beauty products as my go-to skincare both in the morning and at night. These products are not only hydrating but also make my skin feel radiant and nourished. I usually apply Ialuset Hyaluronic Acid between the oil and moisturizer to help lock in moisture.

I also use Alpyn Beauty’s Instant Bright Eye Firming Cream. The final and most important step is sunscreen! If I’m not wearing makeup that day, I’ll use Supergoop’s Glowscreen sunscreen for a hint of color and glow. Under makeup, I’ll wear their Unseen sunscreen.

FACE

I’m currently loving the Kosas concealer and Jones Road Beauty stick for concealing my under-eye bags and dark circles. To use them, I apply the Kosas concealer under my eyes and blend it with my favorite BB beauty brush. Then, I create a semi-circle line with the Jones Road pencil and blend it with the same brush to brighten the area. The Jones Road pencil is easy to control, and I use this BK┬ábeauty brush to blend it.

For foundation, I use RMS Beauty in shade 33. It’s easy to blend with a beauty blender and provides long-lasting coverage. The added bonus is that the bottle is refillable. On the days when I am going for that no makeup makeup look, I like to use the Dior Forever Glow Star filter. I’ve also used Ilia’s skin tint for a touch of coverage and Tarte’s 16-hour full-coverage foundation when I need something to last all day.

For bronzer, I have been using the Ilia bronzer for several years now and I absolutely love it. To add a pop of color to my cheekbones, I layer the RMS Beauty Hydra powder blush in shade Bermuda Rose to my cheekbones.

I love to fill in my eyebrows with this Ilia eyebrow pencil. It fills in easily, providing natural-looking brow fullness. I have a scar on my eyebrow, and this fills it in beautifully. I have tried many different mascaras but the one that remains my #1 favorite is the Diorshow. First, I curl my eyelashes and then apply 2 coats for the desired effect. I also use Sweed’s Lash Lift mascara and eyelash growth serum.

To finish off the look, I’ve been leaning towards Dior’s Addict Lip Glow Oil in pink. As someone who grew up in the height of lip gloss, this is similar to a gloss without the stickiness. It’s the perfect touch of color.
