Beauty

Inspired by localghost, this is simply a list of all the products I regularly use for beauty purposes, including skincare, makeup, and fragrance.

Skincare

Skincare is something I really value as self-care, and I try to commit to my daily routine. Here it is in order:

  1. Cleanser: Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser
  2. Toner: Glow Recipe Cloudberry Toner
  3. Serum: Cocokind Vitamin C Serum
  4. Moisturizer: Matter of Fact Maximalist Age-Defying Moisturizer
  5. Sunscreen: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sunscreen Stick - SPF 45

Makeup

There are many people who I admire for their makeup skills, such as Saria Slays and Leah Van Wyk, but I'm nowhere near their level. I'm pretty understated when it comes to makeup, and I tend to stick to the same few products.

Primer: I use Touch in Sol's No Poreblem Primer, and I absolutely love it. I don't see myself switching to another primer anytime soon. It noticeably smooths my skin and just feels amazing.

Eyeliner: I prefer Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Waterproof Pencil, but lately I've been using a drugstore brand called IZME and I don't regret it. For liquid eyeliner, I use Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick.

Eyeshadow: I'm a huge proponent of e.l.f. palettes. I also love Julep eyeshadow sticks. They go on really nicely and last all day.

Blush: I don't use blush that often, but I really like Lawless.

Foundation: I found Rose Inc and I'm never going back. It goes on smooth, isn't cakey, and looks light and natural.

Mascara: I've been using Honest Beauty's lengthening mascara for a while and am pleased with it. It's not clumpy at all. It noticeably smooths and lengthens my lashes.

Lipstick: I love lipstick. It's my favorite thing makeup-wise. Charlotte Tilbury is my go-to, but I also love Nyx Smooth Whip, e.l.f., and Revlon's Black Cherry.

Lip Gloss/Oils: Just like lipsticks, I'm addicted to lip gloss and lip oils. Right now, my favorites are Milani Fruit Fetish and Fenty Gloss Bomb in shimmering pink for everyday wear.

Fragrance

Fragrance is a fairly new obsession for me, and I'm slowly building a collection. My signature scent is Tom Ford Oud Wood, an earthy and spicy unisex scent that I wear on most days.
