It’s no secret that winter is rough on skin, especially a Michigan winter. Typically, my hands and face are flaky and dry by this point in the year, but so far I’ve been able to keep the flakes at bay. Here’s what has been working for me:
*Full disclosure, a few of the products that I recommend are Beautycounter. I'm a Beautycounter Consultant, so I do have a small financial interest in these products. The reason I recommend them, and the reason that I'm a consultant is because after MUCH research these are some of the safest, high performing products I've been able to find - so naturally I recommend them!
Are you wanting to look a little more put together when you leave in the morning, but not quite sure where to start? Or do you already have a pretty large makeup collection, but you're wanting to get back to basics, and get rid of some of your toxic products? I feel ya, Mama. As a reformed product junkie, and aspiring minimalist I just recently purged my makeup collection of a lot of the toxic products that I had. And to be quite honest, a lot of them I hadn't used in a while. As a busy Mom of two, it's not realistic to put on a full face of flawless makeup every morning, and really that's not my style anymore. The older I get, the less I feel the need to cover up every mark or imperfection on my skin. I want to look like myself!
I wanted to pare down my makeup collection to just a few products and tools that would help me get out the door fast in the morning, but help me look put together. I also wanted these products to be clean and safe. I've come up with a routine that I'm happy with, and I wanted to share with my Mama tribe!
Tools - In an effort to keep things as simple as possible there are only 4 tools I use on an average morning: an eyelash curler, a makeup blending sponge, a foundation brush, and a powder brush.
