I’ll be honest, I’m the opposite of a morning person. If I had it my way, nothing would start until *at least* after 1 pm. Thankfully, the systems I have in place allow me to operate on auto-pilot until the caffeine kicks in.
Introducing….my daily drawer, which as the name suggests, includes all of the beauty products that I use on a daily basis. Since everything is contained, categorized, and within reach, I don’t have to waste time searching for things. Truly the magic of systems at work, people!
I’ve always been the type of person who loves to switch up their routine as the seasons change. Since our schedules are busier than ever now, Nordstrom saved the day (per usual!) as my one-stop-shop for all the products I needed.
*FYI...as a member of The Nordy Club, Nordstrom’s free reward program, I receive free shipping and returns, and automatic points for every dollar I spend, that can be redeemed on my next purchase. (Click here to join!)*
If you are looking for new products to add to *your* daily drawer this fall, here’s a rundown of my new beauty finds, as well as my tried-and-true staples, all available at Nordstrom!
Honestly, every Dry Bar product is amazing, but I keep going back to this primer spray. It’s super lightweight, plus it protects my hair from heat damage. I spritz on my damp hair and comb through, right before blow drying it.
I always like to tie my hair back so it doesn’t get in the way when doing my skincare or makeup routine. These silk hair ties are my favorite because they are gentle and don’t leave creases. Although they are kind of expensive for a pack of five, they are definitely worth every penny!
If your skin is sensitive like mine, then you are probably no stranger to underarm irritation. (This might be the first time I’ve ever typed the words “underarm irritation” but if not now, when?) I’ve used this alcohol-free deodorant from Fresh for almost a year now and not only is it soothing to the skin...it’s also effective.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta ® Line:
I’ve always been a fan of Dr. Dennis Gross products, but his Alpha Beta(R) line is a new favorite! It includes three steps: the Pore Perfecting Cleanser, the Pore Perfecting & Refining Serum, and the Exfoliating Moisturizing Cream. I love this line because it’s gentle on sensitive (and dare I say it...aging) skin, but still offers effective exfoliation for smoother skin.
To remove my makeup, I use micellar water and a makeup eraser towel. I find this duo more effective than traditional makeup wipes, plus it’s gentler on my skin!
A good foundation is *very* hard to find, especially now that we’re all wearing masks. I love this foundation from Charlotte Tilbury because it’s full-coverage, feels good on my skin, and doesn’t transfer. I apply it with the original Beautyblender, which is basically a godsend for anyone who is clueless about makeup like me. Just apply a few dots of foundation to your face, wet the sponge, and tap away.
I could honestly talk about this concealer all day...but I’ll make it short and sweet. Basically, it makes me look less tired than I actually feel, and for that? I am eternally grateful. It also hides any evidence of breakouts and hyperpigmentation. I typically apply it with my fingers or with a Beautyblender, but you can also use the sponge applicator on top.
Even with a full-coverage and transfer-resistant foundation, it still helps to add a setting spray into your routine. If you couldn’t tell already, I *love* everything that Charlotte Tilbury does, so her setting spray is no exception. It’s easy to use, feels great on my skin, and keeps everything in place. If you are more of a powder person, you’ll love her Airbrush Flawless Setting Powder!
I’ve always been extremely picky when it comes to lip gloss. Nothing is worse than a sticky texture. I love this Lip Bath Gloss from Charlotte Tilbury because it nourishes my lips and also plumps them for a fuller effect. Rosy Glow and Pillow Talk are my favorite shades!
Now, I wouldn’t go as far as to call my brows legendary...but with this product, they definitely stay in place and look more defined. I also love that the texture is lightweight and flexible, flexible, so it never looks or feels cakey on my brows.
