Updated Minimalist Skincare Routine (+Daily Makeup)

Nearly three years ago, I got my skin in order. You can read all about my skincare journey here, and today I wanted to take you through the products I use on a regular basis that keep my skin in tip top shape. I also wanted to share my daily makeup, because that took some trial and error when favorite products were discontinued. Let's jump in!

I still wash my face every morning with Herbalism from Lush and I don't know what I will do if they discontinue it. 

Next, I use the Eau Roma Water toner from Lush. The main draw is that it's rose water and I'm obsessed with anything rose scented, and I'm not sure if I'll repurchase once I'm out of it because I'm not sure how much it actually does for my skin. 

After that is Estée Lauder DayWear with SPF 15. It's perfectly creamy and a great base. 

Following that I use It Cosmetics CC Cream in medium with SPF 50. It's a fan favorite and popular product for a reason!

I love using a cream blush (powder just doesn't look as natural on me), but my favorite from NYX is discontinued and I would love any and all recommendations.

When I want to wear eyeshadow I use Tarte's Make Magic Happen palette and will add Maybelline's Define-A-Line pencil eyeliner. 

I've been using a sample eyelash primer from Estée Lauder before mascara and can't decide if it's actually a necessary part of the process. 

Next I use It Cosmetics Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Mascara. I got it from a friend and have a bunch of other sample mascaras in reserves, so I don't know how long it will be until I repurchase, but it is very good! Best mascara I've used for sure. 

For under eye concealer I use Maybelline Facestudio Master Conceal in light. 

Back to It Cosmentics for their Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder. I don't use this on a daily basis, but it is quite nice when I do!

For lips, I use Burtsbees Lip Balm and then I use bareMinerals Statement Lip Matte Liquid Lipstick in Naughty. The color is so perfect, and this is the one bareMinerals product that I've liked.


I still use Lush's 9 to 5 cleansing lotion to remove my makeup. 

Again, I grab Herbalism to wash my face, and then some nights I'll use the Mask of Magnaminty from Lush or whatever sample mask I have at the time. I sleep barefaced and it works well for me to give my skin a break.

What are your favorite skincare and makeup products? Would love any recommendations for a cream blush. Please.
