red lips + messy hair (a simple morning routine)


I am a big fan of simplicity when it comes to make-up. I don’t like to cover up my freckles. I no longer participate in contouring of any kind. I have a very small make-up bag. Although I love simplicity, I also believe in quality products and morning rituals. So grab a cup of coffee (I take mine with collagen peptides + coconut oil or black as my soul). Let’s get ready!

Here’s what I do every morning:
Cleanse: I splash my face with cool water. Not only is this very refreshing but it wakes me and my skin up.
Moisturize + Protect:  I apply serum, moisturizer, and eye cream (in that order).
Massage: I get my trusty jade roller out of the fridge and use it on my face and neck.


A lot of times I will just leave the house with a fresh, naked face but I often times with wear minimal make-up. On make-up days, I will leave the house with my messy waves, bold brows, bold lips, and nice glow à la Jeanne Damas. So, for make-up:

Minimal effort:
Protect + Correct: Juice Beauty’s Stem Celluar CC Cream
Conceal: Maybelline’s Age Rewind Illuminator
Mattify: BareMinerals Transluscent powder
Blush: Glossier’s Cloud Paint (I have Dusk + Haze)
Brows: NYX Tinted Brow Mascara + Ulta’s Ultra Slim Brow Pencil
Glow: Laura Gellar in Charming Pink
Lashes: Eyelash curler
For something extra: Mascara + a sharp cat eye with liquid liner

My Signature Scent: Maison Margiela’s By The Fireplace
For Red Lips: Chateau Labiotte’s Wine Lip Tint or NARS Cruella Matte Lip Pencil
