5 Minute Face: Dewy Daily Makeup Routine

My idea of perfect daily makeup is somewhere between I woke up like this (flawless) and that endless summer glow that can only be found after a week sunbathing off the coast of Spain, lips stained and cheeks flushed off a big glass of Malbec and night of dancing. Really reasonable for a designer who works in an office all week and gets fully flush-faced at first sight of sunshine and rosé, right? With practice and a few miracle workers, I’ve figured out how to roll out of bed with eyes half shut and spend five minutes prepping for my day with a few good products to get glowing. Here we go… OSEA Sea Minerals Spray A couple spritzes of this perks my face right up. OSEA’s Spray is the first thing I put on my face in the morning and the last thing I spray on each night, before my face has to go eight hours without water. It’s a seriously calming formula that’s packed with vitamins and finishes skin with a gorgeous dewy …

Spring Wellness Rituals: My Natural Beauty Routine

2017 update: I’ve edited down a bit on my beauty bag since this post. Here’s my current makeup routine, simpler everyday skincare, and weekend facial ritual. Rahua and Weleda, mentioned below, are still two of my favorites. I switched to Weleda’s citrus deodorant last year – it works just as well as the rose, and I like the scent a bit more! More than anything my skin loves a solid routine. Adjusting these beauty habits with the seasons works really well for my body and spring has brought on quite a few changes since my last wellness check in. I’m craving more exfoliation, lighter moisturizers, and loads of detoxifying salts, herbs, essential oils, and fresh spring scents. Still on track with my beauty resolutions, I’m also continuing to clean out my medicine cabinet to: Phase out products that are tested on animals or contain any toxic ingredients Support naturally-minded brands that give back Feed my skin and body more vitamins Sound like your cup of (Get Gorgeous antioxidant) tea? Let’s go! FACE SKINCARE & MAKEUP …

About Face: Building A Better Beauty Bag

In the years since first following this beauty routine simplification process, I’ve phased out all products tested on animals. I also try to only purchase natural products made with healthy and responsibly sourced ingredients. Here’s my current five-minute makeup routine, my daily skincare regimen, weekend spa ritual, and seven great tips for everyday makeup. Somewhat unconsciously I’ve pared down my beauty routine to a couple minutes a day. Most mornings start with Thayers Rose Water followed by a tinted moisturizer while water warms in the French Press. As coffee brews it’s a swipe of eyeliner, blush, mascara, and brows. On particularly bleary mornings I’ll add cheek illuminator and dab a bit of concealer under the eyes before pouring coffee and heading out the door. Simplifying this routine has given me confidence to buy better quality products I know I’ll use often, and to dive into a refresh of what’s built up since college and what’s running low (I’m down to using balm stain as blush – shhh). Like a round of wardrobe editing, I started …
