Beautiful Inside + Out! {My Beauty Regimen for a Day to Day}

If you know me, you know I love try out new makeup and beauty products all the time. I love going from high end brands to drug store brands... As a matter or fact I am constantly changing my make up brands every time I run out of something and I love it, I like experimenting and finding new amazing brands. This time I am using Neutrogena products. From facial wipes to lip glosses! And loving it! I wanted to do a little step-by-step on what my beauty and skin care regimen is like. I love wearing simple natural-looking makeup for my every day looks, whether its at the office or for running errands!

My nightly routine consists of:
I start by wiping off all my makeup with my Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. They are perfect for those nights when we are so tired and just want a quick cleanse... just wipe a few times and you are done. They leave your skin smooth and super clean with zero makeup residue. You can feel the same cleanse effect as you would if you washed your face with soap. I love them!



I love the easiness of the towelettes but I also like to wash my face with my favorite bar soap the Facial Cleansing Bar Soap - I normally do the wipes + soap combined every other day.

... on those days, I follow up with a scrub, the Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub is great for my skin. It is oil-free and clears blemishes. It has 100% naturally derived grapefruit extract and vitamin C.

Finally once I have done all my cleaning, I apply Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Time Moisturizer - I got this tip from Millie over at BeautyLogic, she is the Beauty Editor for Cosmo for Latinas. I follow her on FB and instagram  and just love her tips. I believe we should start preventing wrinkles early on, skin is super important and most importantly ALWAYS protect your skin from the sun. Even on cloudy days!

And voila! I am ready for bed! I know it seems like a lot of steps but it really isn't. It takes me just about 5 minutes and so totally worth it!  What is your night time skin routine?

The next day in the morning after I have showered and get dressed. I apply my makeup. I must admit I feel naked without it but I don't like to cake makeup on, so for my everyday look I go with very simple steps. Having a toddler, I am really tight on time, so I must use my time efficiently, everyday!

I first apply Shine Control Primer - it helps makeup apply more smoothly and last longer, while optical modifiers help minimize the look of pores.

Second, I use the Shine Control Powder. It helps skin stay shine-free and fresh-looking all day. The lightweight powder with patent-pending rice protein technology acts like a sponge to absorb excess oil and instantly eliminates shine for a fresh look that lasts for 8 hours.

I don't use eye shadow every day. But on days when I have an extra minute in the morning, I like the natural look and feel of the eye shadow stick - easy and natural!


I can't live with out mascara! Like I mentioned earlier, I try different brands all the time, I have at least 3 in my makeup bag right now... and Neutrogena's  Healthy Lengths Mascara is one of those I recommend. It delivers a lash lengthening formula for lashes that look 100% longer, beautifully healthy and noticeable. Exclusive vitamin E and olive oil formula deeply nourishes and strengthens lashes from the inside out so lashes stay strong day after day.

 
A little tip I love that I got from my mom is set your lipstick or lipgloss with some face powder, apply it lightly over your lips and put your favorite lipstick or lipgloss on. It'll last all day!


Finally I apply some lipgloss or lipstick, depending on my mood and clothes that day and I am done. This time I used MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Juicy Peach! Super cute color and natural shade that I love. Here is my look in different lighting! In my bathroom with dim light... peachy and natural.


...and here I am in front of the natural light from my window... I love a natural peachy look. It makes my skin feel clean and fresh all day without that cake-y feeling.

I hope you enjoyed my beauty tips. It is so important to take care of out skin from cleaning regimens to makeup applications, it is never too late to clean, prevent and beautify.
