“I regret taking such good care of my skin,” said no-one ever.
To be perfectly honest, I have never been one to focus on skincare regimes in the past. However, in the last couple of years, I am becoming more aware of the fact that I’m aging! Just a month and a half shy of my 30th birthday, is all the more reason to focus on keeping my skin youthful and healthy!
For the past several months (although I still get into lazy ruts 😏) I have been using the Pura Organics line. Their products are made from all-natural ingredients and do not only help decrease the sign of aging, but actually help prevent it! This post is not sponsored, nor have I been in contact with the brand. I just really love their products!
I always begin by cleansing my face with an all-natural makeup removing wipe. This helps to prepare my skin for cleansing. I use my Clarisonic Cleaning System a few times per week with the Pura Organics scrub. I love that it helps to get deep into my pores and clean out the dirt and bacteria!
Aside from the skin on my face, I also like to pay close attention to the skin on my lips! I have always suffered with really dry and chapped lips. I used to sleep with vaseline on them at night, but after discovering Emuaid Cream, I will never apply any other product! It helps to keep my lips feeling nourished and healthy. It’s also great for cuts and scrapes…hubby and I think it’s a miracle product!

Foundation is like Spanx for the face. -Lynnette Cole
When it comes to my face makeup, I love to start with a great primer! I use a couple different products to help prep my skin for foundation. I tend to gravitate towards foundations and powders that are lightweight and easy to wear. I don’t like products that are thick and heavy. I have been wearing the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation for awhile now and love it! It doesn’t make my skin breakout, offers great protection, and doesn’t feel caked on. A winner in my book for a reasonable price! I love to set my foundation with the It Celebrate Foundation Powder. As far as contouring and highlighting, I am pretty simple! I throw a little bronzer on from the Anastasia Countour Palette and highlight my face with the new Anatasia Glow Palette. I don’t like to look too overdone! To finish off my face, I always use the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Powder. It leave your skin looking airbrushed and pretty!

Is it possible to be addicted to new makeup brushes?! I am starting to think so. There’s something about new brushes that gets me super stoked to do my makeup.

Snag these or another set of brushes for 10% off with code SAVEWITHWINK_AND_A_TWIRL.
Thank you My Brush Set for contributing to this post.
Inner beauty is great, but a little mascara never hurt anybody.
For my eye makeup, I like to keep things very neutral. I’m currently loving the Too Faced Natural Eyes palette. I’ve always been an eyeliner kind of girl, however just recently I’ve switched over to using brown instead of black. I love that it makes my eyes appear more natural. Black is always great for a more dramatic look for a night out on the town!

Life is short, buy the lipstick.
This is probably the one area I don’t spend a lot of time or money on. I’m not a huge lipstick person (probably because the hubby isn’t a big fan 😏). If I wear lipstick, you’ll find me rocking the nude lip. My favorite lip product is the Laura Gellar Supreme Lip Spackle. I put it on before applying lipstick and it helps to create a smoother base on my lips. It makes lipstick look so much better!
