I know I'm not much of a beauty guru, but I'm sharing what little I know of the beauty realm on the blog today. My routine is relatively simple and I've been using the same product for years and shuffling in new ones. I've rounded up my 5 favorites: a hairspray, a face mist, eyeliner, a cleanser, and a moisturizer. Scroll down below to see the what/why/how on each product.
What it is: Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser
How I use it: Before getting in the shower, I put a small amount all over my face (after I've washed it) and leave it semi- rubbed in. In the shower, I soak the towel (the "hot cloth cleanser" part of it) in the hot water and then proceed to take it off.
Why I use it: This is especially effective for getting off residual makeup when a cloth or remover won't do and it will leave you feeling refreshed and your face clean.
What it is: Glossier's Soothing Face Mist
How I use it: A spray a little bit before applying makeup and a little bit after I apply makeup. I also use it randomly, as "soothing rose mist" is well...quite soothing.
Why I use it: It's great for blending and setting makeup. Since it's winter, this is a lifesaver.
What it is: Stila's liquid eyeliner
How I use it: A quick thin stripe on my eyelid, every morning.
Why I use it: It's been a part of my beauty routine for years now & it's easy to use. I also like to keep one in my purse in case of emergencies ;).
What it is: Origins' Mega-Bright moisturizer
How I use it: Post shower & pre makeup.
Why I use it: It's very thin, but very effective. It has a great texture and feels super smooth on the face and is my favorite moisturizer so far (I've been through a lot).
