My skin is usually dry and flaky so after cleaning and exfoliating in the morning I always start off with a moisturizer! I usually use a mixture of serums and moisturizer, but my main product is definitely Trader Joe’s Nourish Anti-Oxidant Moisturizer! It’s inexpensive, and great for sensitive skin! Doesn’t feel greasy either!


Ok SO finding a foundation in my shade is HARD. Anything pale enough for my is either super drying, super expensive, or isn’t available in stores for me to swatch! So I can’t turn to drugstore foundations to save money (RIP). My fave is Teint Idole Ultra by Lancôme, in the shade 90 (they have a wide shade range for deep skin tones as well!) It’s pale and neutral, and medium coverage. Super easy to sheer it out or build it up as needed! If I want fuller coverage I use a Real Techniques beauty sponge. 

Conceal and perfect!

The concealer I use was discontinued, so I’ll have to find a new go-to! But generally I just use a brush to dot concealer over any red spots or blemishes and blend! Super simple.


I have a few fave blushes, but generally I like anything that’s quick and easy. I like cream blushes because they’re easy to blend (super helpful for doing your makeup at red lights in the car). The Cloud Paint by glossier is a pretty foolproof one. I like to put some on the bridge of my nose as well!


Powder! I use a translucent powder by Laura Mercier through my T-zone only! 

Face Fuzz :-)

I don’t have to do my brows anymore since I got them microbladed about a year ago, so that saves me SO much time! But since my lashes are light like my hair, I do LOVE mascara. Benefit’s Bad Gal Bang is hands down the best, with Roller Lash as a close second. I’ve had people ask me if I’m wearing falsie sore extensions multiple times!


My skin is always dry, including my lips. I can’t really do the whole “matte liquid lip” trend so I instead opt for stains since they last just as long but I can pair it with a lip balm easily. It’s hard to find stains and tints anymore since they’re out of fashion, but a lot of K-Beauty brands have great ones and I can find them in US drugstores on occasion! I have the PeriPera water gel in almost every smells and tastes SO yummy oops!


HYDRATING SETTING SPRAY SO MY SKIN DOESNT FALL OFF! Rose scented and baby pink for the ~aesthetic~ of course.

Eyes *

I don’t wear eye makeup on my day to day, but if I’m going out or playing a show I like to have fun with it! I love using LemonHead LA “SpaceJam”, which is chunky glitter suspended in a gel. It stays on without needing glue, and it makes SUPER cute glitter freckles! I use the style “Birthday Bitch” since it has STARS in it and I love that!
