Over these past couple of months, a lot has changed especially when it comes to our routines – both big and small. While our work and social lifestyles did a full 180 as we continue to stay at home, a lot of the day-to-day rituals I would do at home like cooking, cleaning, and skincare got impacted too! I found myself really evaluating each routine and improving on it – in a simplifying way. The first routine I really tackled was my beauty routine. I tossed out any old or expired makeup in those first weeks of quarantine and replaced what I threw out with skincare products to better plump, hydrate, and nurture my skin. All and all, I’ve loved this less is more approach with makeup and hope to continue using this efficient beauty routine, plus or minus a dozen red lipstick colors, from here on out.
Gua Sha Tools
Massage any skincare oils further into your skin or drain your lymphatic system with these Gua Sha Tools – first thing in the morning.
Flashpatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels
Pop these refreshing eye gels before you do your makeup to decrease under eye puffiness. I typically throw these on while blowdrying my hair.
Elemis PRO-COLLAGEN CLEANSING BALM
A efficient beauty routine includes a all in one cleansing balm! Whether we’re removing mascara or just cleansing our skin at the end of a makeup free day – this cleanser does it all in one swoop.
Tatcha The Water Cream
I have wicked dry skin and can’t say enough good things about this water cream. It instantly hydrates the skin and is certainly worth the splurge.
Eye Sleeping Mask
I’ve used this avocado eye sleeping mask for a couple of months now and just love how creamy it is. After cleansing my face at night – I apply this eye mask and have to say a little goes a long way.
Brow Powder Duo
This brow powder duo has been my go-to beauty staple for YEARS now. I personally use the shade dark brown to give me a bold brow. I love pairing a simplistic makeup look with a bold brow – very Audrey Hepburn.
Bronzer & Blush Stick
Nothing is more efficient than a bronzer and blush stick. I often even use the bronzer stick as eyeshadow for a natural but dewy summer look! Not to mention they’re super easy to travel with for touchups or road trips – in hopefully the near future!
