The No Makeup Look
What to do when you don't want to wear makeup, yet still feel and look fabulous? Discover my regular skincare routine! It will leave your face feeling fresh and rejuvenated.
1. Clinique: Take the day off!
Let's start with the end, how unorthodox but as a millennial I get to be weird and unapologetic. Before you even think of putting makeup on, you should have a clean and clear face. I live for this Clinique product! I use this makeup remover almost every night to literally take the day off! It's a solid cream but it melts beautifully when applied. The oil version is bomb too!
2. Clinique: Moisturizer
As you can probably tell by now, Clinique is my main babe when it comes to skincare and self love. I truly enjoy staring at the mirror while I rub some moisture back into my face. This product is a fast-absorbing, lightweight daily moisturizer for dry to combination skin types. My skin is more dry than oily and I find that this moisturizer keeps my skin balanced and silky. Hydrate your skin religiously, specially your face!
3. Elf: Liquid Highlighter
If you're on a budget, Elf is the makeup brand for you! I l'm addicted to this liquid highlighter! It costs around $4USD and honestly the best illuminator I've ever purchased. It's a big statement to make, but it has an amazing consistency and it's also enriched with antioxidant vitamin E, which makes your skin happy and glowy. If you want to keep your makeup natural, apply one or two small drops.
4. Victoria's Secret: Bronzing Stick
Have you ever tried conturing with a bronzing stick? You simply must! It allows more control and precise strokes. The bronzing stick I use is actually an all over bronzing stick and it has lasted me around 3 years! I only use it on my face and I maintain it as clean as possible! Did you know makeup has an expiration date? Check the sticker under the bottom of your cosmetics! Normally they last around 6-12 months. But honestly, I just can't stop using this bronzer!
5. Juicy Couture: Eau de Parfum Spray
I know perfume is not makeup, but it is part of my daily beauty routine. Perfumes are one of my biggest obsessions and I collect them since a very young age. I have many signature scents like Daisy by Marc Jacobs, CK by Calvin Klein, and Heavenly by Victoria's Secret. But Juicy Couture will always be my to-go perfume. It is a youthful and fresh smell that reminds me of my childhood!
6. Chanel: ROUGE COCO
For my lips, I'm either wearing MAC, Chanel, or 100% Coconut Oil. You have to treat yo' lips right! I hate when they crack with the cold weather! Apart from being a painful and annoying experience, it also looks ridiculously ugly. Therefore, I like to invest on my lip care products. This Chanel lipstick is super hydrating and long-lasting.

7. Neutrogena: Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer
Some of you might ask, "why do you use wrinkle repair creams? You're 22!" Yes, and I'd like to keep my skin 22 too! My mom always told me that it's never too early to start combating wrinkles! I really like this Neutrogena moisturizer because it's cheap and it does the job. I only apply this product on my forehead and around my eyes at nighttime.
Let me know what you think about these products! Good luck cuties.
