COMPLETE BEAUTY ROUTINE

I always love reading and watching other bloggers’ beauty routines and seeing what products they use, so I figured I’d share mine today. I am always on the lookout for new products and find that usually these posts are broken up by skincare, makeup or hair products. I figured I’d just compile them all together. So, this post is a little lengthy but it’s filled with product recommendations throughout my routine. I linked basically everything so you can try out some of my favorite products!
SHOWER
First, I use Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash. Since starting to use this soap, my skin has been so soft and rarely gets dry. Plus it smells so good! Next, I wash my face with Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser (1-2 pumps). If you don’t know it already, I’m a huge Glossier fan (see this post). The milky jelly cleanser is a super gentle face wash that is great for everyday use. It has makeup removing properties, but usually, I’ll use a Neutrogena makeup remover wipe before my shower, then use the cleanser to wash my face and get off any excess makeup that the wipe missed. I shave with EOS Shaving Cream & a Venus Razor. The EOS shaving cream makes my legs so soft- cannot recommend it enough! 
For my hair, I usually wash it every two or three days. I have a dry scalp, so to keep it healthy, I use AG Control Shampoo every other time I wash my hair (so every four days). When I don’t use the control shampoo, I just use the Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo & Conditioner duo. Its a little expensive for a drugstore product, but it leaves my hair so smooth and shiny, and I’ve noticed that its helped with the strength of my hair. 
POST SHOWER

The first thing I do when I get out of the shower after drying off is put Glossier priming moisturizer on my face (yes, another Glossier product. And there’s more coming #sorrynotsorry). Then, I’ll put on some Palmer’s cocoa butter lotion to keep my skin soft and moisturized, especially in the summer. 
There are two products I put in my hair post-shower: AG Fast Food leave in conditioner and Organix Coconut Milk serum. The leave-in conditioner works with my conditioner to moisturize and keep my hair smooth. The coconut milk serum hydrates my hair and helps with anti-breakage. And of course, I’ll put on deodorant.
MAKEUP

Usually, I shower at night so I’m not doing my makeup and hair afterwards but I thought this post would be more fun if it was more detailed, so I’m also sharing my daily hair and makeup routines. 
Moisturizer is one of the most important parts of the routine, so even though its in the “post-shower” section, I wanted to address it again. Since using Glossier’s moisturizer, I’ve noticed major differences in my skin and its never looked better. Moral of the story: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!! 
After that, I’ll put on Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint. Its lighter than a BB cream or foundation, but it gives some coverage, which is perfect for me, especially in the summer. If I’m dressing up or just want heavier coverage, I’ll use Maybelline BB Cream instead. Then I’ll cover up any blemishes with Benefit bo-ing concealer. Usually, I’ll put a little of this under my eyes as well to brighten up my face. Then, I’ll quickly dust Urban Decay Naked Powder on and then use the Naked Flushed bronzer and blush to add some color back on my face. Then, I add some highlight with Benefit’s High Beam on my cheek bones, brow bone and Cupid’s bow. I’m dying to try out Glossier’s Haloscope highlighter once it comes back in stock in my shade. 
After that, I keep it pretty simple and quickly brush on Glossier’s boy brow and then Dior Iconic Overcurl mascara. I always used to just use drugstore mascara, but when I did my own makeup for prom I splurged and got this one and have been loving it! I use half as much and get a great curl and length. For my lips, most days I just use my Burt’s Bees pomegranate lip balm. To finish off my makeup, I spritz Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray to freshen up my face and keep everything on all day. 
HAIR
I never blow dry my hair, so if I’m going out soon after my shower, I’ll just let it air dry or put it in a quick braid or low bun. During the week, I’ll sometimes curl or straighten my hair. I use a Dry Bar flat iron and curling wand. 
MISC.  

A few other things I wanted to include… I try to do face masks once every week or so. I haven’t been good about keeping up with it lately but I’m hoping to get back on the bandwagon soon. I love Glossier’s two masks (surprised?). I also usually paint my nails once every week or two. My favorite color lately has been Essie’s Bikini So Teeny.  As for perfume, honestly, I usually forget. If I remember, I love Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh. I just have the rollerball so I can throw it in my purse or my school bag and have it on-the-go!
