Fall 2017 Skincare Routine feat. Clarisonic

I think this is the first time in my entire life that I’ve ever had a full-on skincare routine. I’ve been a 2x-a-day face washing girl with day and night moisturizer for probably the past 8 years. I haven’t strayed much from it because it worked to an extent, but since August, my face has been a bit out of control, and I figured that as a 20-year-old, I should probably start taking better care of my skin.

Recently my face has been that of a pubescent middle schooler, and I’m not too fond of that.

I don’t know if it’s hormonal changes, if it’s my anxiety, if it’s the stress of school, or a combination of everything, but whatever it is, I’m not happy about it.

It’s messing with my self-confidence, and it’s just straight up frustrating to look in the mirror and see my forehead covered in red bumps. To deal with it for the day, it’s always the toss up of covering my face in makeup to try and hide the problem or letting my skin breathe and feeling like everyone’s staring at my face all day.

Makeup for Work

Hello friends! So as you may or may not know, I started an internship last week which means I have to abide by workplace rules. Aside from having to dress up every day, which I love, I get to wear makeup! I’m don’t usually get to wear makeup as often as I’d like, it’s so nice to be able to wear it!

Have work ready makeup everyday with this simple makeup routine.

All in all, I think this look takes about 10ish minutes to do and requires no high end products. I’m a college student and I don’t have money to be spending $50+ on an eye shadow palette (although I would die to have the Naked3 palette by Urban Decay).
