Happy Friday Eve!
Most of the time (like 99.999 %) i’m not wearing makeup, but 100% of the time I have a skincare routine each morning.
Lets just start with this: I’m a mom of two who doesn’t like wearing makeup. I find it so annoying to have to put it on to then have to take it off! However, I have found that since I wake up with Chloe nearly 2-3 times per night I’m starting to look tired during the day. When I go out at night now it would be nice to wear just a little bit. My eyes are also sensitive when it comes to mascara so I haven’t been using it, but I was given a sample of this makeup remover from By Terry and it didn’t bother my eyes! It almost feels like water and it’s not oily at all. I’m able to put contacts in the next morning with no problem at all.
Every morning when I wake up I use iS Clinical Serum (yes, it’s pricey but I have seen a huge difference in my skin – it glows so much more since using it), I then use Skin Medica moisturizer before I apply on my sunscreen. My sunscreen is tinted so it gives a little coverage.
When I do wear makeup I do this entire routine and then start off with the CC cream from By Terry. If it’s during the day I’ll mix the sunscreen and cc cream. I use the By Terry stick for my cheek bones which I am obsessed with because it comes with a brush and is so easy to put on. I never used to wear eye shadow, but I discovered this stick that I love. I then use a lash curler and before I put mascara on and LASTLY a red lip, of course. My favorite red is from Chantecaille called Dahlia (ps I heard Angelina Jolie uses this makeup line for her lips and don’t we all want her lips)!
This routine is super easy and will take you under 5 minutes. While I don’t think anyone should be caking on the makeup by any means, it’s still nice to wear a little bit and enhance your beauty!
