As you all know, we just got to New York for my sister’s wedding and I wanted to keep you posted on how I keep my skin healthy and glowy while we are traveling. SO many of my favorite items are on sale right now so I figured it was the perfect time to give you a recap of my favorite items – all of which make up my “On The Go Beauty and Skincare Routine”.
Shop Emily’s Beauty and Skincare Routine:
Ralph Lauren fragrances sent me this a little while back and I just had to replace my original bottle because I went through it! I absolutely love this scent. It is fresh but sophisticated, and I love that it isn’t all that expensive. I do alternate fragrances depending on how I am feeling that day and I also use this one, this one and this one.
This has become my absolute favorite polish color lately. As soon as September hits, I go back to my tried and true dark vampy color>>> here, but right now I am all about this beigey, pink, nude color! I love it! And the name is just so amazing as well!
I love this unseen sunscreen – I have been reaching for this one most lately – because of the high SPF and because it doubles as a primer. It goes on silky smooth to the touch, it has a matte finish, and it actually minimizes pores and helps your makeup stay in place.
I love these anti pollution drops. These drops combine a concentrated mix of protective antioxidants that boost your skin’s defenses against pollution and environmental stressors – AND they give your skin a beautiful bronze glow. They’re not a self tanner, but more of a cream bronzer with amazing anti aging properties. I love them because if you don’t want to wear foundation, you can add these to your moisturizer to give yourself a beautiful tanned glow! They are a must have in anyone’s beauty and skincare routine.
You all know that this CC cream is my absolute favorite. It has an SPF 50 built in, it goes on light, and with build-able coverage it is the perfect base for my makeup routine. I wear the shade medium. I apply with my fingers or with a damp beauty blender if I want very light coverage. It is super easy to apply and it acts as a moisturizer as well. This is definitely one of my holy grail products! I use the shade – Medium.
This color corrector is my absolute favorite makeup product of ALL time. It is seriously the most amazing thing in the whole wide world and I don’t know how I ever lived without it! You pat it on, under your eyes, with the shape tape and you blend it in as an undereye concealer. It makes the texture of the shape tape and the coverage better. What’s more – it works as a highlighter and gives you this amazing dewey finish! I use the light color. In the shape tape I use the fair color!
This powder foundation gives amazing coverage AND takes away any shine you may have. I LOVE IT! I use the color Light Natural.
This bronzer/highlighter set is amazing. It is very lightweight, not cake-y at all, and the color is universally flattering! Ashley and I both use it, and somehow it works perfectly on both of us!
My eyebrows are microbladed, but I still need a little bit of filling in here and there. I love this brow pencil – it is the best color and literally takes 30 seconds to use! There is only one color too!
You can’t go wrong with this eyeshadow palate. It is the perfect mix of neutrals– and there is truly something for everyone! I don’t use eyeshadow on a normal day but since I am going to be headed to some events this weekend I included this in my beauty and skincare routine.
This lip liner – in the color Pillow Talk – actually allows you to overline your lips for a naturally larger lip line. I just found this product and I am SO obsessed with it. I never really understood the need for lip liner, but now I do!
I talked about this on stories a while back, but I had searched FAR AND WIDE for the perfect nude lipstick. I finally found this one and I bought 5 in case they ever discontinue it. It has a nice creamy texture, it is THE perfect color, and it really stays put if you need it to. I use the color Beige Tribute.
As you all know, Ashley and I are militant about taking care of our skin. Your beauty regimen doesn’t matter if what is underneath isn’t being taken care of. That is why this post is the “Beauty and Skincare Routine” – anyone’s routine really has two parts! My skin has changed a ton over the past few years. From getting off of birth control, to pregnancy, to postpartum, to adult acne, to getting back on birth control – I mean – you name it, my skin has been through it. That being said, I finally found a beauty and skincare routine that I LOVE. I was gifted a Tatcha skincare set by the brand about two months ago -and I absolutely fell in love. My skin just reacted SO well to it. I mix in my favorite Colleen Rothschild products – and a couple of my holy grail skincare items – and this is my PERFECT skincare regimen!
This cleansing oil works to remove makeup, oil and dirt. It is nourishing on the skin, washes away clean, and leaves your skin feeling nice and hydrated.
I love this when I need a clean and intense moisturizer. The ingredients are all natural and pregnancy safe and they really pack a punch!
I use this after the oil as my exfoliating step. You place a small pour of the Rice Powder in your hand with a couple of drops of water to form a paste, and then you massage it all over your face. I add a bit more water and it starts to foam and works as my second cleanse. It is a gentle exfoliator and perfect for sensitive skin.
R45 Retinol Program:
I love this retinol program from Beauty Bio so much. It is so potent that you only have to use it twice a year. What I really love about it is that the strength of the retinol builds over the 45 day program so you never get that dry, flaky, chapped feeling that so many other retinol products will give you. I also love that the system uses a retinol/peptide mix – so you’re getting hydration in addition to the retinol. This system just makes your skin GLOW! If you are in your mid 20s – I cannot explain how important it is to start on a retinol program. Retinol aids in cell turnover and collagen production and helps reduce the appearance of find lines and wrinkles. I have prescription strength retinol from my doctor and I actually hate it because of how harsh it it on my skin. R45 is the answer to all the problems I have with other retinol products.
This serum is absolutely a GAME CHANGER. Ashley introduced me to it – and I will never go back. Mandelic acid is an AHA – Alpha Hydroxy Acid – that is less intense than say Glycolic Acid, but the premise is the same. The acid/serum chemically exfoliates your skin and leaves you with fresher, softer, and better looking skin. Again- the key is GENTLE. I have very sensitive skin – and this product has helped me SO much!
This eye cream is simply amazing. If you have very dry under-eyes and need something seriously nourishing and hydrating – this is it. When we met with the Fresh beauty team in New York, they actually told me THE most amazing story about this product. The two founders of the company were in the product development stage and they were traveling abroad in Italy. They were at a monastery and found ancient roman transcripts about a special healing ointment that gladiators used to heal their wounds. This eye cream is based on that formula. How FREAKING COOL is that?
This is the skincare set I am obsessed with. The essence is essentially a plumping/hydrating water/toner. It feels amazing. The renewal cream is a light moisturizing everyday cream. The neck cream is amazing and the skin on my neck already looks less wrinkly. Then the eye cream – it is so light that you can wear it morning and night! I LOVE This set and the best part is that you can buy it now and lock in that $175 for $500 worth of product!
As you all know, I am Native obsessed. I love that all their deodorants are free of aluminum and parabens and I have recently become obsessed with their body wash as well! I just recently took their personalized deodorant quiz >>> here, and they sent me a deodorant with my name on it, in THE perfect scent.
I hope this helps! And yes- I brought EVERYTHING with me. Since we are going to be gone for almost a week total, I needed to be sure I had all the goods packed!
I love the Glo Pro for SOOO many reasons and I love to travel with the normal attachment and the jade roller attachment! The jade roller is SO amazing for depuffing after long days of travel! You can also buy the jade roller separate if you don’t already have the GloPro.
