CITY/STATE: Denver, CO
PHILOSOPHY: Take good care of your skin.
AM BEAUTY ROUTINE: Rinse face with water, apply Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Dew It All Eye Gel, Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush or MAC, MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as an eye shadow base, eye shadow (usually MAC, Pat McGrath, or Urban Decay), Tarte Lights! Camera! Lashes! 4-In-1 Mascara, and a lipstick or gloss from my (probably too big!) collection. My favorite lipstick brands are MAC, Pat McGrath, Chanel and Rimmel London.
PM BEAUTY ROUTINE: Wash face with Nubian Heritage African Black Soap and a few drops of pure Argan oil before Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Dew It All Eye Gel and MD Complete Wrinkle and Radiance Remedy every night (which I found through Beauty Undercover! It has Retinol and Vitamin C). Over that I use Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Hyaluronic Essence, and either Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Sleeping Cream or First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. A few times a week I exfoliate with Lumene Kirkas Glow Reveal 60 Second Facial and a clay mask mixed with water and honey once or twice a month for a really deep clean. I moisturize my hands and feet with coconut oil every night.
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT PRODUCT: Lumene skin care products – they have completely changed my skin for the better!
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT COSMETIC: Lipstick!
MOST EXPENSIVE PRODUCT: Pat McGrath kits, like the Metalmorphosis 005 Everything Kit. It’s a splurge but the quality and pigmentation of every product is so good!
BEST BARGAIN PRODUCT: Rimmel London Lipsticks.
FAVORITE BEAUTY TOOL: Zoeva Makeup Artist Brush Set (25 brushes). I’ve had these brushes for over 2 years and they still look and work the same as the day I got them. Quality brushes are a good investment.
COMMENTS: You can never have too many lipsticks!
