I’ve been in a pretty solid beauty daily routine recently. I used to chop and change my products as often as I changed socks, but over the past year I’ve really found more of a routine of sticking with things I like over changing all the time. So I have a little run down of some of my Simple everyday essentials that hopefully get me a little step closer to a fresh faced day to day look with some hydrating skincare gems plus a few glow-giving make-up favourites that manage to just perfect things enough that I manage to look like a better version of my natural self without looking caked in make-up!
A few of my current Simple skincare favourites make an appearance – including the new Simple Micellar Wipes – these things really are ace. Such a quick and easy way to either remove make-up/the days grime for a quick refresh. Or just to freshen up before applying make-up. Which is something I tend to do a lot if I’ve been perhaps working from home make-up free before I head out – it’s nice to refresh a little before applying make-up. They’re basically the fab Micellar water but in super-easy wipe format. My favourite thing about these is how hydrating they are – I have really dry skin and these manage to refresh without feeling like I’m stripping my skin of moisture at all. The fact I’ve worked my way through I think four packets since I first tried in the Summer probably says a lot about how much I like these – I have a drawer of other wipes but I find myself stocking up on these as my faves. For skin prep (pre-make-up I’ve also been really enjoying the Simple Age Resist Eye Cream – like a slightly more intense version of the soothing eye cream that I’ve loved for ages. So ideal for dryer winter skin. Plus the Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser – manages to be hydrating, long lasting and rich without feeling heavy. Which makes it ideal skincare prep for make-up.
For a little look at my every day make-up favourites take a little look at the video below which takes you through my step by step daily skin and make-up routine.
I love that as I type this I have the wipes on my desk (they come in seriously handy as a blogger for swatch removal too…) plus the eye cream is in my drawer. You know they’re favourites when they’re not far out of reach at any moment! I hope you enjoy the video and a little peek at my daily routine! It was great fun filming this video – I’m excited to get more into filming and doing more You Tube in 2016… so watch this space!
