Updated Daily Makeup Routine

I've been getting a little more adventurous with my makeup lately - branching out and trying some new brands and products that I haven't before. Since I work from home, I don't necessarily wear makeup every day, but on days that I have meetings, or days that I'm taking shooting content, I like to have a daily look down. I still keep in pretty simple for my day-to-day makeup, though - just the basics that help me feel put together and polished.

My Favorite Sunscreens

It's been a relatively mild summer here so far, but we've had a few days recently that were super bright and sunny and hot - the kind of days where sunscreen is an absolute necessity. Since I've tried out a ton over the years - I'm pretty picky about ingredients and making sure the sunscreen actually works - I thought I'd share some of my favorites.

Drunk Elephant Bouncy Brightfacial Review

I've been experimenting a little bit more with my skincare lately. For years, I was really hesitant to make any changes - it took me a really, really long time to get my acne under control, and to get to a place where I was comfortable with my bare skin. Since it took me so long to figure it out, I was so nervous to make any changes to upset the balance! But I feel like I have a better handle on what's ok to change, what ingredients won't irritate my skin, and what kind of products I like, so I'm a little more willing to switch it up or try something new. The most recent thing that I tried and ended up loving was the Drunk Elephant Bouncy Brightfacial Brightening Mask.

Accidentally Adaptive: StriVectin Neck Serum Roller

I am very into the skincare that I put on my face - I have a routine that I use, I love reading about new products and ingredients and their efficacy, and I'm always searching for the next amazing product. But I have largely ignored my neck up until now. I know it might sound silly, but I recently saw some pictures of a woman who had applied sunscreen to her face daily for decades but not to her neck... and the results were shocking, to say the least.
