I've shared a few snippets of my beauty routine on my IG stories and received a lot of requests to write a dedicated post. Below, I'm outlining the products and steps I take on a daily basis to keep my skin feeling and looking its best!

A little background: I have sensitive combination skin that is oily in my T-Zone and dry in my cheeks. I'm currently 35 and battling the first signs of aging (fine lines, uneven skin tone, puffiness underneath my eyes and loss of elasticity). My skin benefits from a balance of daily physical and chemical exfoliation since I tend to get little white bumps if I haven't exfoliated enough. A few things it cannot tolerate: talc, silicones (particularly cyclopentasiloxane), chemical sunscreens, certain oils and fragrance — this greatly limits the makeup and products I can use. This past year I've been transitioning to clean beauty products and introduced oils into my routine — really wish I had done this sooner! It really balanced out my complexion and I never break out. I'm a nut about sunscreen — I believe protecting our skin from the sun really shaves years off of the face. I haven't had any procedures (aside from laser hair removal), however I'm open to exploring how fillers can help me age gracefully. I believe skincare always comes first, makeup second. I never have time to spend hours on my face so I try to keep things simple. Minimal but polished is how I'd describe my makeup preference. 

1. Cleanse with Drunk Elephant Juju Bar + Clarisonic.
2. Apply  Context Skin Hydrating Toner with cotton pad.
3. Apply Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum .
4. Apply Fig + Yarrow Eyebright Coffee Bean Eye Cream.
5. Massage eye cream and serum into face with facial roller.
6. (If needed, when my skin is extra dry) Apply Drunk Elephant Marula Oil.
7. (If not wearing makeup) Apply Drunk Elephant Sunscreen.

1. After morning skincare regimen, apply Bareminerals Complexion Rescue with fingers. I use shade 3, Buttercream. This is my holy grail tinted moisturizer + sunscreen. It contains no oils, talc, silicone or chemical sunscreens.
2. Conceal under eyes and any redness with Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (I use shade Custard). Blend with fingers (I limit the use of sponges and brushes because I don't want to have to wash anything!).
3. Set makeup with IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better™ CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder™ with SPF 50+ . I love this powder because I can layer on more SPF throughout the day (my dermatologist recommends reapplying sunscreen every 2 hours, even if you're indoors!). I apply it with the Sephora PRO Mini Airbrush 55.5— this brush really makes a difference! The powder goes on so smooth.
4. I like to define my eyes by using bronze eyshadow instead of eyeliner. Bareminerals READY eyeshadow  in Bare Neutrals is my favorite palette. I use the 3 shades on the bottom right with the eyeliner end of the included brush.
5. Apply Honest Beauty Truly Lush Mascara (love this because it comes with a primer and it's so gentle).
6. Comb through eyelashes with Tweezerman iLash Comb. This makes a huge difference — removes any clumps and leaves lashes so natural.
7. Fill in brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer. I use the Medium Brown shade.
8. Use the spooley brush at the end of the brow definer to brush and "fluff" up eyebrow hairs.
9. Apply tinted lip balm. Current favorite: Henne Organics Luxury Lip Tint (Bare).

1. Cleanse with Drunk Elephant Beste Jelly Cleanser + Clarisonic.
2. Apply  Context Skin Hydrating Toner with cotton pad.
3. Apply Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum + Shaba Complex Eye Serum.
4. Massage serums into face with facial roller.
5. Apply choice of facial oil (most days I use Drunk Elephant Marula Oil , but also like Paradox Argan Oil, Linne Balancing Oil, or Peet Rivko's Balancing Face Oil)

For extra exfoliation, I alternate between Drunk Elephant Sukari BabyFacial  and Angela Caglia Skincare Dream Exfoliant Mask on Mondays and Thursdays.  On Wednesdays or Sundays, or when skin is extra dry, I use Nuori Supreme Moisture Mask.
