With summer in full swing, and a baby on the way, I decided to cut back my beauty routine and use less products, but still achieve a flawless makeup look. I’ve discovered new products, and gone back to tried-but-true favourites, and now I can get ready in 5 minutes and be out the door.
Before I get into my daytime routine, I did finally choose a night cream, after testing out many different ones. This is affordable, will last a long time, smells amazing, and my skin has never felt or looked better.
As for my daytime look, I’m down to 8 products, which is not too bad considering I was easily using 12-15 before (I blame it on my obsession with makeup). The BB cream from YSL is a game-changer, it’s by far my favourite new product, so if you’re looking for a replacement for your foundation, with a nice amount of coverage, this is the one to buy. I also love my tinted eyebrow gel, it darkens and fills in my brows without having to spend 10 minutes with my eyebrow pencil. And finally, the finishing powder from Hourglass is the only thing that controls my shine in the summer, so I love it. The full-size version is a tad expensive, but you can pick up the travel size for under $30 and give it a try. It sets your makeup and gives you a beautiful finish all day long.
Leave me a note in the comments below with your favourite product right now. I’m always looking for new things to try!
