Current Skincare Routine

Image-1 (1)

I’m a huge proponent of skincare, but I try to keep it simple…mostly because I’m lazy. There are two key factors I take into account when it comes to my skincare routine; Moisture and SPF. I have normal to dry skin, so I need all the help I can get to keep my skin from flaking off. SPF is also a huge factor, I try to make sure that I put some sort of SPF on my face every morning because no one wants wrinkles. Here are the products that I use both in the morning, and at night.

Beauty Wish List: January 2015

beauty wants

 

It’s a new year, which means it’s time for some new beauty purchases. This is what I’m currently coveting on Sephora.com. If I could I would probably just live in the store, but since that’s a little unrealistic, I like to make my house feel as if I’m in it. A lot of these products have been on my wish list for a while now. It’s about time I take the plunge.

one// Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil – Last time I went into Sephora, the lovely sales assistant put some of this on my face before applying foundation. That was one of the only times that my foundation lasted for hours on end. I haven’t even given it another try, but I already swear by it!

two// Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream – I’m kind of addicted to eye creams. If I don’t put it on every morning and night I feel like I’ll instantly get winkles. I’ve heard a lot of really good things about this eye cream, and we could all use a little extra hydration in that area.

three// Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish – I recently just cut a foot off my hair, and with that came off a lot of the extra weight and volume. Now I’m all about texturizing sprays to give my hair an extra lift.

four//NEST Wasabi Pear Body Cream – I’ve been obsessed with NEST fragrances for a while now, especially the wasabi pear scent. It’s the perfect mixture of sweetness with a slight crisp.

five// Supergoop! Forever Young Hand Cream – Your hands are the first place to show signs of aging. This hand cream has SPF 40, so it’s perfect to keep those hands looking young.

six// Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation – According to all the beauty gurus on YouTube, this foundation is a must have. I haven’t worn powdered foundation in a long time so I really want to give this a try.

seven// Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – I’ve tried the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in liquid form, and it was one of the most beautiful highlights I have ever used. However, I ended up dropping the bottle and got the liquid highlighter all over my bathroom floor. For my clumsy self, I think the pressed powder might be the go-to version.

eight// Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl – I’m always looking for that perfect red lipstick, and I’ve heard from multiple people that Nars’ Dragon Girl is that lip color. Need. It. Now.
