A new year means new a new makeup and skincare routine. I am a creature of habit, so it is hard for me to branch out with new products. My mom encouraged my sister and I to start fresh with clean and healthy skin, so we spent the holidays testing new products that we love.
For my skin, I usually use face wash from CVS and apply either Cetaphil or a tiny bit of La Mer. Other than that, I don’t really use too many products (mainly because I’m lazy and also have really sensitive skin). I have to be careful with the products I use because I am allergic to many of them. I wanted new skincare products that are affordable and yield results. I started with a three step kit from Clinique, which includes face wash, toner, and face lotion. I have been using this for a few weeks now and am loving it. My skin feels so fresh and tingly after applying the toner and the cream cools it down quickly.
If I have a blemish, I use this acne gel before bed and I swear it is magic! I have always used this and I have yet to find anything better for dissolving blemishes.
I have also started applying an eye cream by Bobbi Brown. I have never used eye cream really before, but the woman helping me at the makeup counter insisted I start. It is the thinnest and most sensitive skin on your entire body! I feel so glamorous using my new eye cream and the results have been great.
I highly recommend these skin care products and you can shop the exact items below!
For my makeup, I am old school and have a hard time replacing makeup with new brands. I have tested many products and this is my new makeup routine! I start with a Giorgio Armani silk foundation that is lightweight and then add my bronzer and highlighter (the highlighter is minimal and a new thing I’m still practicing with). Next, I apply my under eye corrector, eye-shadow, eyeliner and mascara and I’m done! My makeup takes me less than ten minutes to apply and that’s why I love my routine so much. I have linked exactly what’s in my makeup bag below!
