I am lucky enough to have pretty clear skin (sometimes with the occasional breakout), so I like to keep my skincare nice and simple. I find that using products that are natural and cruelty-free helps to keep my skin healthy.
These are my current favourites (I also use an Australis Blush which I have run out of!)
I always begin my routine by moisturising my skin with Redwin Sorbolene cream after I cleanse, it’s a light creme that instantly sinks in and provides the perfect base for my next step – primer. The Australis Original Primer is great for everyday wear as it smooths out my skin and prevents my foundation slipping off. 3INA (pronounced MINA) makes an amazing foundation that gives a full coverage and lasts 9 to 5 with only a light powder touch up!
I use Australis blush to add some colour to my face, then I shape my brows using the “Oh Hai Brow” kit by Australis – as you can see, I am nearly due for a new one! I use the lightest colour for my brows and if I need a lift, I add in the highlighter under the arch of my brow and a touch to my eyelids. 3INA also has a perfect pen eyeliner which gives me the control to create a thin or thick line. I like to create a casual flick from the outer corner of my eye for everyday wear. My Lights, Camera, Lashes Tarte mascara is one that I purchased in Sephora, Malaysia. Its a great 4-in-1 that lengthens and curls my lashes while giving them volume and moisture.
Lush is my go to for perfume and lip balm, as well as a million other things! I use myHoney Trap Lip Balm everyday and it smells so good that I could eat it! If I feel like a bit more colour I add a dash of Models Prefer Lipstick in “natural”, I purchased this one ages ago in a Priceline sale. I like that it gives me just a hint of colour.
To remove my make up and cleanse my skin I use 9 To 5 from Lush, it’s a great everyday cleanser and its gentle on my skin. When I feel I need a bit of TLC I use my Sukin Organics Purifying Masque to de-stress my skin. I follow this up with some Kukin Organic Rosehip oil before I go to bed, these both help to sooth and rejuvenate my skin.
While this is just my basic skincare/makeup routine I would really learn how to contour like a Kardashian and be more confident to wear bolder lipsticks #beautygoals!
Although I love all of my products, I am in search of an at-home facial kit to brighten and smooth my skin and new cruelty-free brands to try – if you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments below
