Tomorrow is the day.
Tomorrow is the day where I’m finally moving back to Berlin after 7 years of waiting! A part of me still can’t realise that this is actually happening and the other part of me is just beyond excited. Of course, I’m also really sad that I won’t be able to see my boyfriend and family as often as I would like to but I’m positive that we’ll get through this together. I mean, I’m not that far away from them so it should definitely work out!
Anyway! As for today’s post I wanted to try something a bit different to the blog posts on makeup and skincare I usually write. Throughout Summer I really pulled myself together and set up a skincare and makeup routine for dewy skin. I’ve always loved the look of glowy, dewy skin, especially during the warm season of the year, so I wanted my skin to look that good too!
To be fair, it all started with me receiving my Beautylish order including the It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream… It always makes my skin look amazing and super glowy that I thought ‘You know what, let’s try a complete skincare routine for dewy skin!’ So that’s what I tried. And it actually works out for my skin at the moment!
Sometimes my skin is really sensitive when it comes to new combinations of different products so I was a bit careful when I set up this new routine. You can imagine how happy I was when I realised that my skin actually likes this routine, ha!
This could be titled as more of a ‘morning skincare + makeup routine’ but I will do one for the evening as well very soon!
So the first step of this routine is the Garnier Pure Active Sensitive Anti-Blemish Clarifying Tonic. I use a few drops of it on a cotton pad and get rid of all the excess oil on my face. In the morning, my face tends to be a lot more oily than in the evening or throughout the day and with this tonic it’s super easy to get rid of all that!
The next product I like to use is the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. I have the 30 ml bottle but I think I will have to get my hands on the full-size product soon! I really like this because it adds the first ‘layer’ of dewiness to my skin and it also smells divine!
Next up, I use two products from Skin Chemists, which is the Rose Quartz Age Defence Youth Facial Oil and the Rose Quartz Hydrating & Illuminating Day Moisturiser. I’ve absolutely been loving this combination and both of these products smell incredible as well! Especially the moisturiser adds a lot more glow and dewiness to my skin.
The second to last step in my little routine is the application of the It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream. I use the shade ‘Fair’ and it’s a perfect match for me! I never thought I would like a CC cream this much but I was so wrong! This looks so natural when applied yet it gives just the right amount of coverage I need at the moment!
And last but definitely not least I like to apply the MAC Fix+ to finish off the entire skincare and makeup routine.
These six products have made my daily skincare and makeup routine so much more fun and interesting. I’ve also been getting a few compliments on my skin and questions on how I make my skin look so glowy and healthy, which always makes me happy!
I really hope you guys enjoyed this post and stay tuned for my next one tomorrow!
