My make-up routine hasn't changed that much over the years, but while the routine remains relatively the same, I tend to switch up products every few months based on the season. Today, I thought I'd share what's in my make-up bag for fall.
Most notably, my summer eyeshadows have been swapped out for my recent purchase - this Nude Drama palette by Bobbi Brown. There are pink and purple undertones and lots of ways to build different looks, and I actually have a new Beauty Files post coming with a tutorial for how I use it day to day. I am a sucker for eyeshadow palettes because they're so easy to travel with and usually really versatile. Below are a few others I like.
Before I get to the eyes though, I usually start by prepping my face. I discovered this illuminating moisturizer by Tata Harper and it's a game changer if you like glowing, dewy looking skin. Tata Harper products are free from GMOs, toxins, fillers, artificial colors and fragrances, and synthetic chemicals. They're super high quality and always smell so good. I put this on first thing and let it soak in while I brush my teeth. Then I start with my concealer and foundation, and the illuminating moisturizer helps to keep my skin dewy and glowing all day long. Love it. Below are a few others I've tried that are good as well.
I finish by filling in my brows with this pencil and setting them in place with brow gel, a product I never thought I'd use in my life, but when you're Lebanese and Ecuadorian, you've generally got some brows to tame, haha.
And then, oddly, I usually keep some hair product in my make-up bag. I recently discovered this Oribe moisturizing hair creme and absolutely love it. I can use it during the day to revive and texturize, or I will put a small amount on the ends at night and let it soak in.
Speaking of the end of the day, once I take all my make-up off and wash my face, I sleep in either this Sunday Riley cream or the Osea Malibu corrective complex, which I find does a great job at keeping my skin hydrated.
As for tools, the only thing I keep in my make-up bag is a pair of small brow scissors. All my make-up brushes I keep in a jar on my bathroom counter.
I'd love to hear about any new products you've recently discovered, or if you're a make-up person, how your products change from season to season. Let me know in the comments section below!
