“Morning: Every morning I wash my face with either Binchotan Charcoal Facial Soap or Somme Institute cleanser and then go through the Somme Institute five step program–technically six steps, since I add the eye treatment. I usually don’t wear makeup unless I go out. If I need to look somewhat presentable, but don’t really care, I’ll just wear NARS concealer and curl my eyelashes. But if I go for full makeup, it will be Armani Luminous Silk Foundation or Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet Foundation, NARS concealer and powder, Benefit Dandelion Blush, Urban Decay Naked Palette as eyeliner, Benefit They’re Real mascara, and Vaseline Lip Treatment.
I’m the world’s laziest with hair so I rarely do anything to it other than wash it. My favorite hair product is Margaret Josefin Hair Care Essence. It smooths dry bits and smells like peaches. And for body, always Mountain Ocean Skin Trip Moisturizer.
Day: The only thing I ever religiously carry with me at all times is Vaseline Lip Treatment. Or Mountain Ocean Lip Trip if I’m doing something active and I don’t want to use my hands. There’s nothing worse than chapped lips. If I’m actually wearing makeup I’ll have my NARS compact powder and concealer on me for touch ups.
Night: At night I remove all my makeup with Philosophy Purity and a swipe of Bioderma Créaline to make sure everything is off. As a long time sufferer of acne, I’m strict about removing all my makeup and washing my face before bed. Every few weeks I’ll do a mask – either Boscia Luminizing Black Mask or Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay mixed with Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. If I have breakouts I’ll use Kate Somerville EradiKate or tea tree oil. La Mer The Eye Concentrate for eyes. I love the cooling applicator stick. For moisture I alternate between La Mer Creme de la Mer and Rodin Olio Lusso depending on how dry I feel.”
