Cruelty-Free Makeup Staples & Routine

IMG_9883.JPG

I start my routine by cleaning and prepping my skin. I wash my face using a face wash prescribed by my dermatologist, then I tone with witch hazel.

Once that has all settled, I apply the Cle Cosmetics CCC cream in the 'light' shade with my fingers to my cheeks, forehead, and chin, and blend with my fingertips.

Once that is all blended, I set it with a translucent powder. next, I apply the Tarte amazonian clay blush in 'paaarty' on the apples of my cheeks.

Following that, I fill in my brows with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in 'taupe'. I like for my brows to look natural, so I only fill in the sparse areas and lightly shape them.

For my eyes, I dip my smudger brush in the shade 'seaside' from the Tarte Limited Edition Rainbow-of-The-Sea eyeshadow palette vol. 2 and smudge my lower lashline. I then grab my lash curler, curl my lashes, and coat both my top and bottom lashes with TooFaced's Better-Than-Sex mascara.

Lastly, to finish off the look, I add Glossier's Balm Dotcom in the flavor 'birthday.' 

This look is very minimalistic and natural, I like to emphasize my natural features and not go overboard with products. It took a lot of trial and error for me to find these products and a routine that works for me.
