My Simple Everyday Makeup Routine 

As a teenager I never was really intrigued about makeup, mostly because my skin was wreck! Acne made it so difficult to apply makeup and any other skincare products.

So many chemicals would further irritate my skin by causing more breakouts and blemishes. So I got no other choice but to get use to the natural look.

As my skin began to heal, I began to try organic, non-comedogenic, gluten-free, paraben-free brands. But none of them performed as good as cosmetics loaded with chemicals. It was as if these natural brands had to sacrifice performance for safety.  WA WA WA WAAA….

Fortunately, a lovely friend introduced me to brand that has rocked my world and stopped my struggle with makeup and skincare products.

I love the products so much that I decided to become a Beautycounter consultant ! I was a little nervous at first because I am kind of a makeup virgen, but it was impossible not to be part of such a wonderful mission and try safer skincare products that actually perform.

At some point I wanted to become more serious about my skin care routine and this was my chance! I have to admit, I’ve never felt so comfortable wearing makeup. Beautycounter products makes me want to kiss my face every day! I love how light-weight their products are and how natural they look.

Most importantly, it makes me happy to know that I am not compromising health for beauty.

If you are reading this article, it is probable we both have a very practical approach to makeup. So today I want to show you my simple everyday makeup routine to highlight your natural beauty without compromising your hormones with so many toxins.

Skin Prep

Don’t skip it! This step makes such a big difference on how your skin feels and looks after you apply foundation (or even just little blush.) I like to alternate between these products to provide my skin with as much variety of nutrients as possible. You can use whichever you feel will suit your skin best. (If you aren’t sure what’s best for you, feel free to send me a message.)

  • Brightening face oil – wonderful to lighten the skin and help erase dark spots. All you need is four drops (forehead, cheeks and chin).
  • Balancing face oil – ideal for problematic skin. It contains ylang, ylang which can help kill and prevent bacteria while gently detoxing the skin. Like the Brightening oil, all you need is four drops.
  • Nourishing Day Moisturizer – Perfect  for any skin type. It is easily absorbed and keeps skin hydrated throughout the day. An small pump is enough.

At first I used to think applying oil on my face was going to leave it too greasy. This isn’t the case with these facial oils, the skin absorbes them in just a matter of minutes. It will help the foundation apply smoothly and look even more natural.

Foundation & Blush

  • I absolutely love this Tint Skin Foundation. It applies smoothly and makes my face look like porcelain because it reduces the appearance of fine lines. It looks natural without leaving a shade difference between the face and neck. All you need is a pea-size amount to cover the entire face. There are 8 different tones you can choose from. I use the Linen.
  • After my foundation has set (only takes a couple of minutes), I apply my bloom/tulip blush. It looks so natural and blends perfectly with my foundation. I also use it on bare skin for those days that I don’t feel like applying any coverage.


Make those beautiful eyes POP! 

  • Eyebrow pencil: This is a new addition to my makeup routine. I did’t realize how light my eyebrows are and how much definition it can give to my face to lightly color them. When I don’t feel like applying any make up, doing my eyebrows alone makes a great difference in making my eye pop!
  • Eyeliner: I alternate between the Color Outline Eye Pencil from beautycounter and the Espresso pencil eyeliner from ZuZu.  During summer I more often go with the Espresso shade and in winter I apply the black eyeliner.
  • Lengthening mascara: I have long lashes like my daddy. 🙂 Thank you dad! It is not like I need to make them any longer, but I love this mascara in particular because it defines and conditions my lashes. It is smudge-proof, flake-proof and easily washable. If you are looking for volume then the Volumizing mascara is for you, it has 385% volumizing effect…crazy!

Add a little color 

I was never a lipstick kind of girl until now. I am in love with this lip sheer, it feels so smooth and keeps my lips moisturized. What’s great about this lip sheer is that although it is made with safer ingredients it is long-lasting, so there’s no need to reapply every 30 minutes. If you are wondering which ones are my favorites, I love plum and petal.
