Beauty Routine

 As I mentioned in my previous Skin Owl post, I am a complete and utter product junkie. Mainly a Green Beauty addict, but nonetheless a junkie.

In the warmer months, I rarely wear make up. In fact I rarely wear make up all together but in the hotter months I really try to let my Summer glow shine through. That being said, I wanted to take y'all through my every day (aka on the days I wear make up) beauty routine. 

On a side note, I also just discovered the Think Dirty app thanks to the girls over at Treasures & Travels. This app helps you scan your beauty products, to see if your bathroom shelf is full of clean or dirty products. So for example it uses a "Dirty Meter" scale of 1-10 to rate how "clean" your beauty products are. 

are products that do not contain any ingredients which have a documented potential negative health impact

are products that use ingredients which have potential moderate negative long term health effects

are products that have ingredients which have potential serious negative long term health effects

For each product I share today I will put the Dirty Meter rating in parenthesis next to it. If a product doesn't have a number next to it, it's not yet listed on the Think Dirty app.

First, I prep my face using Glossier's Soothing Face Mist (1), and Skin Owl's Beauty Drops and Eye+ Gel. If you are interested in learning more about the Skin Owl products, take a peek at my last post here.

Next up, make up.

First I prime my face with Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Illuminating Primer. I absolutely love this stuff. I have used it for close to a year, and I love how it preps the skin for make up. 

Then I use my Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint in Medium (1). I started using this stuff thanks to my friend Jewlie and her Instagram feed. I love how light and sheer this product is. It's very minimal coverage so if you have freckles, they will still very much show through this product. However, I am a big fan as this doesn't even feel like make up. It just feels and looks like your skin.

Next up, my W3LL People Bio Bronzer Stick (3) This may look dark in person, but it blends beautifully. I just switched over from the powder form of this to the stick form and I am IN LOVE.

Then I add a little glow, with my W3LL People Bio Brightener (0). I have tried other brand's highlight sticks and this is my favorite so far. Again, I have used this product for a little over a year and it's still a favorite in my bag. It makes your skin look as if you are fully hydrated and radiant.

Last but not least, Glossier's Mint Balm Dotcom (2) Seriously cannot go anywhere without this. Great consistency, and protects my lips from getting chapped while also giving them that extra hydrated look. As I am typing this I am having the urge to find it from my purse and put it on now.

*I also set my make up with the Glossier's Soothing Face Mist - It not only keeps your make up in place, but helps you achieve that dewy look everyone is going for these days*

Just like I start the day, I end the day with Glossier & Skin Owl. First I use my Charcoal Beauty Bar to wash my face. I then follow up with a nice spritz of the Glossier Soothing Face Mist and the Mangosteen Beauty Drops. I then finish off the regimen with the Eye+ gel and off I go to bed.

To me, my beauty routine is my self-care act of the day. I want my products to not only look good, but to help nourish my skin and soul. With green beauty products, you are treating yourself to the best with the best. If you have any questions or would like to try out some products, send me a message!
