My Routine

Below is a summary of my typical daily and weekly routine:

Morning, Daily:

  1. Rinse face with water. That's it. (Sometimes, after my workout, I'll use the Charcoal Cleansing Bar if I feel like my face needs real cleaning.)

  2. #1 Brightening Facial Oil or #3 Balancing Oil (I love the facial oils! Contact me to find out which one may suit your skin best.)

--- In WFH life, this is where I typically stop. If I want to look fresh on video for any reason, I'll continue with my old favorites: ---

  1. Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer (I'm #2 or #3 in summer)

  2. Cream Blush

The end!

Next Level: If I've got something special going on or am doing makeup for a night out, I add in...

  • Skin Twin Featherweight Foundation

  • Skin Twin Creamy Concealer as needed on any blemishes and also as under-eye brightener

  • Eyeshadow - I use the Ultimate Nudes Eyeshadow Palette and looove these shades. It's out of stock (it was a holiday special), but you can get the Necessary Neutrals Eyeshadow, which is basically the same, and that's what I'll buy when my current palette is up. (Also I know it's a big palette, but the color is highly pigmented and so just a dab goes a long way. As a result, the palette lasts a long time; I got mine a year ago and it still looks totally full. For a smaller and equally gorgeous palette, try this Romantic set.)

  • Color Define Brow Pencil ("dark")

  • Precision Liquid Eyeliner (comes in black only) - this is my latest addition! I struggle with pencil liners (don't know why; I always feel like I'm going to poke my eye out), but find this perfect and smooth for formal events. It is also nice and long-lasting! Waterproof.

  • Mascara

Night, Daily:

  1. If makeup, then remove makeup with Makeup remover wipes. (I often tear them in half to extend use - they really do the job so I don't even need the whole sheet.)

  2. Charcoal Cleansing Bar (this is my face wash)

  3. Countertime routine: (1) Prep with Essence, (2) Treat with either Radiance Serum OR Overnight Resurfacing Peel, (3) Hydrate with Supreme Cream, and (4) add eye cream last, gently.

  4. Lip conditioner (either flavor - I love them both): (Peppermint, Calendula)


Body wash: Citrus Mimosa Body Bar

Body lotion: Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Body Lotion

Weekly / as needed / sometimes cycled in:

  • *#1 Charcoal Mask (as full mask or spot treatment, once/week, especially use this before AND after big events. Tip: This can also be a spot treatment)

  • #2 Plumping Facial Oil instead of the #1 oil (if in need of extra hydration, plumping)

  • Cleansing Balm as cleanser, moisturizer (just because. typically if skin is feeling dry. Used a bunch when summer turned to fall/winter), or mask. Sometimes I bring this to travel with instead of the charcoal facial bar - a bit easier than transporting a wet bar.

  • Sugar Body Scrub once a week

  • Oil Cleansing (not BC - just regular oil. I do this for more of a deep clean. Learn more here)
