New Announcement/Monthly Series | May 2018

Monday, May 28, 2018

Welcome Back!

As you can see from the title, I've decided to start my first ever monthly beauty series. With some help and encouragement from some friends, I have decided to do a monthly interview with every day people, to show you the differences and similarities within our beauty routines. Every month I will choose a person whose beauty inspires me, and together, we will break down their beauty routine. I'm super excited to start this new project, and to share it with you! For our first month, I figured I would share with you my beauty routine from start to finish. 

What is your every day beauty routine (AM/PM)?
AM- When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is brush my teeth. I work full time at a desk job, so I usually don't wear makeup because I don't have much face to face contact. I wash my face in the morning with my favorite purity face wash by Philosophy, and finish with a toner. I use one from Mario Badescu at the moment, but I really try to find one with Witch Hazel in it to get rid of blemishes gently. I then put on my moisturizer, I have been using the same daily moisturizer for a couple years now by Garnier mentioned in my skincare routine post. When my face is feeling a bit more dry than usual I will use a face oil instead to truly soak up as much moisture as possible. Next, I apply my eye cream. This is ever changing because I am trying to find one that I can't live without. No matter what, I always use clear brow gel in my brows to set them, and I always curl my lashes. Last step is lip balm, and I am usually out the door!

PM- Coming home from a long day, I usually shower first thing if I don't have anything else planned. I only wash my hair every few days so most of the time its just a body shower. Right after I shower I apply any and all lotions for my night time routine. I use a heavier face moisturizer at night, every night, but I typically use the same eye cream as I do in the morning. I lather my whole body in the knock off version of Vaseline lotion sold by "Top Care", and then I usually lay in bed for a bit to let it all soak in. On nights when I face mask, this is usually the time it is done. In that case, I apply all of my face lotions afterward if needed.

The weekends are when I wear the most makeup. I will sometimes sneak some days at work in when I wake up with enough time but I am super lazy and I usually wake up at the last second. The only thing that changes in when I wear makeup is the use of makeup wipes at night! I always switch those out as well but my favorite at the moment are the Simple Micellar Water wipes.

What is the one product you could never live without?
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

Lipstick, or Lipgloss?

Liquid or Powder foundation?

Liquid or Pencil Eyeliner?
Probably liquid. I usually don't wear eyeliner

Falsies or Mascara?

What is one beauty tip that you would like to share with everyone?
Skincare first!! Your makeup will only look as good as what is underneath!

What is your first memory when it comes to makeup?
Colored Eyeliner in middle school. My mom isn't a huge makeup wearer, so I had no real influence other than my friends. We thought we were super cool.

What is your favorite part of your routine?
Applying eyebrow gel. Its always my last step, and it makes me feel put together even when I'm not wearing makeup.

Hope this was as fun to read as it was to create for you guys. I can't wait to start interviewing many beautiful and inspiring people to bring you the real and raw reality of the every day person's beauty routine.

As always thanks for reading,
