I know it's common to use eye cream at night time before you go to sleep, but I love that applying a peptide cream in the morning gives my skin a boost and leaves a fresh, dewy finish. This option from Clinique is opthalmologist tested and it has sheer light reflecting pigments that brighten skin and conceal dark circles.
My skin is pretty clear, so I don't like to a heavy foundation to conceal imperfections. During the winter months (and during my cycle) I'll spot treat with concealer or foundation and use a heavier cream to supplement the cold weather. As the weather gets warmer, however, I love a good tinted moisturizer. This Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint is lightweight, evens out my complexion and it has SPF 30.
Sephora Collection+ Pantone Conceal and Correct Palette
Finding a concealer with really great texture, that still gets the job done is no easy feat. On days when my brows are not looking their best, I like to fake the look of freshly waxed bows by outlining my brows with a nude concealer. This conceal and correct palette offers a range of shades that compliment my skin through out the year and it does the job without feeling—or looking—heavy.
I'm trying to skip mascara this summer, but if I don't do something to my eyes everyday then I look tired. This rose gold eye stick is great for brightening my gaze. On days when I skip my usual black liquid liner, I like to line my lower waterline with this shimmery nude hue to perk up my stare.
Were I ever to become a castaway on an island and told that I could only take one beauty product (excluding skincare), my one hero product would be a brow powder. This palette is great for creating natural-looking brows. If I'm feeling lazy, I'll stick with using the darker shade alone, but when I have an event, I'll fill in the beginning of my brows with the lighter shade and use the darker shade towards the ends.
L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara in Blackest Black
Two coats of this mascara on my lashes takes my look to the next level. I love the option of using the primer to add length and volume, or just sticking with the pigment to give my lashes a color boost.
As a brown girl, I love to dust my cheeks with a golden-apricot hue. This Taj Mahal shade from Nars warms up my complexion and gives me a little shimmer in all the right places without making me look overly 'done.'
