Everyday Makeup and Skincare Routine

Updated: Oct 23

My everyday makeup and skincare routine in my 40s is incredibly simple. When I think back to my high school and college days, I really have no idea what the heck I was doing every morning because it took me forever to get ready.

Speaking of high school, I had a giant caboodle filled with all the makeup I wish I still had ... mainly because the brands and the products are so nostalgic.

Scented body glitter gel was a staple for me. I always dabbed some on the outside corners of my eyes. And don't get me started on the Hard Candy black glitter eyeliner I had in 1999. Big ole drool emoji.

After 40 years, I can confidently say that I've figured out what works and what doesn't. I buy all of the products in the post on repeat. I think the cool kids call them "empties."

I will say that my skincare routine is pretty minimal. Being stone cold sober for 2 years has helped my skin tremendously. And I drink a lot of water in between the gallons of coffee I drink everyday. OK, not gallons ... but still.

And, 95% of my makeup is made with clean ingredients. It really does make a difference. I promise.

Here are my tried and true favorites:



Ready for a before photo? It really shows my age because you can tell that I plucked the heck out of my eyebrows in the 90s.

After! Unedited and real as ever.

Let me know if you have any questions! This was fun to write.
