Beauty Routine: Skincare + Makeup + Hair

February 3, 2019


I was drafting an Instagram post when I began listing all the skincare, makeup and hair products I am currently using (and loving) and thought to myself, "Wait a sec, I should write a beauty post!" So here I am! When it comes to my beauty routine, I am fairly low maintenance and believe it or not, it usually only takes me about 15-20 minute to get ready. It certainly helps that I am a shower-at-night person because washing and blow-drying my hair at night saves me 20 min in the morning. Strangely but fortunately, my hair behaves when I sleep so I only need to brush it real quick when I wake up.

For my daily skincare, I am currently using Clarins Pore Control Serum along with Freck Rich Bitch Cactus + Vitamin C Moisturizer and the So Jelly Cactus Eye Jelly. I really love how light and fresh these smell!

For makeup... I swear by Bobbi Brown when it comes to foundation and concealer! I use Skin Long Wear Foundation SPF 15 in Natural and Skin Foundation Stick in Warm Beige. I contour with Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer and highlight with The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter. For blush, I am obsessed with Lilah B. Lip & Cheek Duo in Beige/Nude. It's so creamy and pigmented yet super light and last all day! As for brows... oh man... I am TERRIBLE at drawing my brows (I got microbladed long time ago but I need to do that again soon!) but I don't seem to have any trouble using Total Temptation Brow Definer by Maybelline. For my eyes, I usually don't do ANYTHING with them unless I am going out or doing something fancy because my lash extension from Blink Bar is simply magical and I don't need any eye makeup. However, when I go out to a nice dinner or an event, then I use either the Dolce Vita Luxury Palette by Charlotte Tilbury or the Urban Decay Cherry Naked Palette and finish off with a cat eye using Fenty Flyliner Liquid Eyeliner. Is it odd that I only use liquid when it comes to eyeliner? Anything else won't last on my eyes and I've used only liquid eyeliners since I was a teenager. Mascara, on the other hand, is completely out of the picture ever since I go to Blink Bar for my volume lash extension. Seriously, it changed my life! Lipstick... is also not really in my life anymore. These days I mainly use Clarins Light Lip Comfort Oil because it's glossy, has a tint of color, and smells sooo good. If I am going to an event, then I usually rock some red lips.

Moving onto hair! Ever since I got my blunt bob and a new color, I've been obsessed! It's only been three weeks but I can't even imagine myself with long hair now. Crazy right? To keep my rosy blonde hair cool, I use Amika Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner once a week. Other days, I use Kérastase Densify Shampoo and Conditioner. I apply Kérastase Lait de Soie Blow-dry Hair Milk before blow-drying my hair. Containing both coconut oil and Moroccan Argan oil, it controls frizz, detangles, and protects hair from heat. I wash my hair once every two days and the dry shampoo by Klorane keeps my hair feeling fresh in between wash. I've used a fair share of dry shampoos and this one is by far the best! Lastly, for styling and volume, I alternate between Living Proof Dry Volume Blast and Ouai Volume Spray.
