my daily {beauty} routine...
1 May 2013


It's only been in the last year or so, that I've put together more of a daily routine in terms of the products I use to take care of my face and those I apply as daily makeup. Since we're heading into the summer—a time to show our faces even more—I thought I'd share some of my favorite beauty and makeup products that I use on a daily basis with you...

I start my day by washing my face with a cleanser, spritzing a little mist (so nice in the summer!), and a moisturizing with eye cream and a SPF lotion (I love both low-end and high end). For normal days, I apply my go-to blush with brush, curl my lashes, add some mascara (this is the only one I've used that doesn't clump!), and apply a little bit of gloss or lip stain. If I'm going to a meeting or going out at night and need to have a little more makeup on, I layer on a slighty darker blush, and a darker lipstick. Then I add some eyeliner to my top lids, apply eyeshadow cream with my fingers, and then blend the two together with a smudge brush. Finally, I try to always keep some polish on my hands or toes and love this perfect mix of peach and red all year long.

What are some of your favorite daily beauty essentials?
