I say this every time, but I think I’ve mastered my quick and easy getting ready routine with just these products below. Knowing me, I’ll likely be cycling through a different handful of products by next week, but no matter what I’m using, it’s coming from my drawer of all time favorite products—not just random new products. I just switch things up when my skin or hair is looking like it needs something different! Here is what I’ve really been loving this week.
Beautycounter All Bright Triple AHA Acid Toner: I really love this. I do love my Dennis Gross Daily Peels, but they do take a while and this toner gets me out the door quick! It tingles just enough to let me know it’s working, but feels soothing at the same time. My skin definitely looks brighter and my pores a lot cleaner after using.
Beautycounter All Bright Brightening Oil: Beautycounter nails it when it comes to facial oils. They always have. Somehow they are nourishing, but never sit on top of the skin. And if you don’t know already, Beautycounter has incredibly strict standards when it comes to ingredient safety and regulation. This one includes Vitamin C and is super glowy and beautiful on the skin!
Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation Stick: I’ve realized that I only love this product when my skin has something very moisturizing underneath, like the oil mentioned above. When that’s the case, it blends like a dream and looks 100x better! I’m still using my summer shade, which is V.
Blended with the Merit Tapered Blending Brush. It’s awesome.
Chanel Les Beiges Oversize Healthy Glow Sun-Kissed Powder: I picked this up in August and haven’t looked back. It’s the best bronzer I’ve ever used! It truly makes my skin look sun-kissed and glowy, but without a speck of shimmer. The price is high, but the powder is huge and will last a long, long time. I’m shade medium.
I apply this bronzer with this Chanel Blush Brush. It’s a uniquely shaped brush that I find endless uses for–powder, blush, bronzer. I’m telling you, brushes make a huge difference because they all disperse product differently. This brush really helps to be precise, but it’s fluffy enough to keep the product applied in a diffused, beautiful way.
Merit Flush Balm Cream Blush: Sometimes it’s hard to find a cream blush that is glowy but not sticky… and this one fits the bill! It gives a radiance to the cheeks, so I don’t even feel like I need a highlighter. I wear shade Beverly Hills.
Anastasia Brow Definer: My pick for eyebrow pencils! It applies like butter, but stays put all day. I use shade soft brown. And I usually use this to brush my brows up afterwards and hold them in place.
Merit Clean Lash Lengthening Tubing Mascara: It’s amazing! With one application, it looks like bare, yet full lashes. That “clean girl” lash, ya know. The great thing is that you can build it up for more oomph because the mascara starts to create little extensions on your lashes. And it doesn’t smudge or fall out throughout the day! So impressed.
Sisley Phyto-Rouge Shine: This has the shine of a gloss, the feel of a balm, and the color of a lipstick. It includes things like jojoba oil, vitamin E, moringa oil, and more really nourishing ingredients.
Necessaire Neck Serum: Tech neck is a real thing and this helps better than anything else I’ve tried! It’s a multi-peptide treatment for aged neck formulated with a clinically-proven 9% peptide blend, Niacinamide and Rosewater.
Necessaire Body Serum: I put this on during the daytime underneath my body lotion. (We use serums for our face, why not our body too?!) It’s infused with five molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide and Ceramide NP to help hydrate, replenish and plump the deeper layers of skin.
Necessaire Body Lotion: The great thing about Necessaire is they use facial grade ingredients for their body products. It’s clean, too! This is a fast-absorbing multi-vitamin and multi-peptide moisturizing treatment made to deeply moisturize, nourish and strengthen skin’s natural moisture barrier.
Oribe Hair Alchemy Strengthening Treatment Serum: If you have brittle, fragile hair like I do, then I think you’ll love this. It’s hydrating, makes my hair feel thicker, and I’ve noticed less breakage since using it. Definitely a must for me!
I like to apply this to my hair and then let my hair air dry 90% while pinned up with a claw clip like this. I change the direction of my hair a few times and then re-clip it so that it doesn’t dry just one way. And then I finish with my Dyson Air Wrap. Lately, I just use the dryer attachment until my hair is 98% dry, then finish with the round brush part.
