A Minimal Beauty Routine for Glowing Skin
I've been downsizing my beauty routine for a while now. It's funny when you think about it—I love beauty products and trying out new brands. But there is something to be said about having a go-to routine and knowing what works for you.
Glossier products are a staple in my beauty uniform. I love how simple, effective and affordable the products are. I'm also a huge sucker for the packaging, as you can probably see.
Rather than cover up, I've been embracing a much more minimal routine. Below, find a few favorites that I've been loving lately:
I must own every flavor of Balm Dotcom, but this coconut-scented is by far my favorite. It's so versatile—I can use it on my lips, cuticles, elbows, you name it. And it smells amazing!
I'm not a heavy foundation girl. I like a little bit of coverage just to even my skin out a bit and diffuse any redness. This may be the best thing that ever happened to my face. My skin errs on the drier side, so powders are out for me. This formula blends into skin like a lotion, leaving me looking dewy and fresh-faced.
I was using Haloscope in Quartz for a while, but recently swapped it out for this golden shade. It gives me a healthy, post-vacation glow (minus the airfare). I apply it to my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose and on my cupid's bow to give the illusion of plumper lip.
Serums were an uncharted territory for me. I guess I never really bought into the hype. How could one product really do x, y and z? Recently, my friend Emily had recommended this Super Glow serum to me. It's formulated with Vitamin C and Magnesium to brighten and tone. I use it under the Skin Tint and I really do notice a difference in my complexion! I'm sold.
This was another underdog product for me. I'm not one to add unnecessary steps to my routine, but I was pleasantly surprised by how hydrating and toning this face mist was! I use it after cleansing at night to tone and in the mornings before I apply the Super Glow Serum. I keep a spare in my purse for when I need a mid-day refresh.
What are your go-to beauty products? I'd love to hear!
