Simple But Effective Beauty Routine

Simple but effective with 4 items beauty routine…

I am not a Mom or single but I am working, typically I am always in a rush to get somewhere and not nearly caffeinated enough. Even if it’s just doing stuff around the house I always make an effort to do these four things because it makes me feel beautiful and alive. 

Less is more for my daily look simply because I am a high functioning lazy procrastinator and my energy only goes so far. This look can take me anywhere from 5 – 15 minutes (I am also a perfectionist). 

  1. SPF: Sunscreen because duh! You can use a Moisturizer with SPF, BB cream, Powder, Foundation or straight up coppertone for the face. Just put it on!

       SPF is as important as brushing your teeth. It’s going to save you from needing to get botox        every 4 months in the future. I tell all my clients “it’s the cheapest & best anti aging product          you can get” 

    My SPF of choice is the Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40. It’s completely clear, good for all skin                types, has a natural velvety finish so it works amazing as a primer under makeup & it’s made      of clean chemicals, yay to better choices! 

 

  1. Mascara: Lashes! Curl them and put on some waterproof mascara. This is where the process can get long. I was blessed with long beautiful eyeball hairs but they are straight as sticks…. so I really prioritize curling them before applying mascara. This step really does most of the heavy lifting from this beauty formula because it opens up the eyes, making you look awake and gives the appearance of bigger eyes.

      Waterproof formula not just because I am uber emotional and anything can happen but              because they keep the curled shape intact. When I use a regular formula they go back to              being flat no matter how much elbow grease I put into curling them, think of it like this…. If          you curled the hair on your head and brushed water through it what would happen? The              curl pattern would go back to its regular state. Science <3 

      Any waterproof mascara works, I use the Voluminous by Loreal – Makeup by Mario (Kim’s            MUA) swears by it.

 

  1. Brows: This process is subjective, do whatever you want with your facial hair. My preference is that if I could laser off every hair below my lashes I would. Fluffy and Bushy brows are definitely my jam but very shaped and intentional with the look. When grooming my brows I don’t want to make myself look like anyone else nor do I want to try too hard.

       I like to use a tinted brow gel with fibers because it keeps the hairs in place, gives a tint and         with a heavier hand you can literally paint the brows with it & the fibers add some bushy-             ness to the brow. My preferred product of choice is Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+                    Tinted Volumizing Eyebrow Gel in shade 3 Medium (neutral light brown) 

 

  1. Lip Balm: Nothing screams out “I did not try” like lips that resemble cracked sidewalks. I can always rely on Carmex.

That’s all folks! I hope you enjoyed it. Keep in touch @selenawillcutyou
