For those who know me, you know that I don't like to wear a lot of makeup on a day to day basis. You also know that I take very good care of my skin and I am very diligent with my everyday routine.
Having said that, I don't spend much money on my makeup + skincare routine either. It's very basic but it gets the job done. I don't buy crappy products either, because I care about what goes on my skin, but I would never spend 50$ on a mascara. I would rather put that hard earned money towards a new clothing piece, to be completely honest with you!
Now that I got that off my chest... here is my everyday skincare + makeup routine!
See, I told you it was basic! I use my Spectro Cleanser every morning + night and then apply my day + night moisturizing cream afterwards.
I have recently added Harlow into my skin routine after I was gifted these products... I have only tested them out for about a week now but I will keep you updated with the results!
Harlow is a Vancouver based, whole ingredient, self-care product company! Their all natural products smell amazing and their ingredients reflect that. Check em' out here!
I usually start my makeup routine by filing in my eyebrows by usingAnastasia Brow Wiz, in the shade "Medium Brown". You can find it at your closest Sephora (but you probably already knew that).
Many people are surprised by the fact that I don't wear foundation. But like I said before, I don't like wearing a lot of makeup and foundation feels to heavy for me.
I go straight in with my NARS Creamy Concealer in the shade "Vanilla".
After concealing, I use my Hoola Matte Bronzer to bronze my face and I do a slight contour.
Blush is my favourite part, I could pack it on all day! I have a couple different drug store blushes for different seasons of the year. When I'm more pale I like to use a warmer blush and when I have a tan I use a brighter blush!
After I've finished all of the above, I apply my Stila translucent setting powder.
Lastly, for mascara I put on any of my favourite drug store mascaras.
A few of my faves: here + here + here.
Naturally, my lips are very dark so I don't often wear a lot of lipsticks. When I do, I usually go for a nude colour in the spring/summer months or burgundy in the colder seasons.
I do love to moisturize my lips though, I use my body shop lip butter on the daily!
I've linked all the products I use above incase you're interested in testing some out yourself!
Until next time, you can find me on Instagram!
