My Morning Skin Care Routine.

I haven't done an updated skin care routine in a few years, so I wanted to share all the products I am currently using right now. It was also perfect timing to share how I use the Spin For Perfect Skin by Vanity Planet. This is a facial and body brush cleansing system. It's not an exact dupe for the Clarisonic, but it's a pretty good alternative. Don't forget to use the code MORENABRUSH to save 70% off!

My skin type is normal/combination.


Description: Say goodbye to manual cleansing and say hello to noticeably clearer skin with Vanity Planet’s Spin for Perfect Skin. An easy-to-use, comprehensive system that allows you to clean your skin deeper are more efficiently than your hands alone. Spin for Perfect Skin’s rotating movement comes with four brush heads designed to cleanse skin deeper and more efficiently than manual cleansing alone. Needless to say, we’ve got you covered from head to toe.

Retail Price: $100 $30 with coupon code MORENABRUSH

The device is available in six colors and I have the color Strawberry Ice.

My August Favorites.

During August (and some of July) I discovered a few new products that have been in heavy rotation. If you would like to check out my prior monthly favorites then be sure to click here. I was really focused on my skin and finding a dewy, natural foundation. During hotter seasons I definitely don't want to wear a heavier foundation. Keep scrolling to see what my favorites products were!

I received the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme, Setting Powder, Setting Powder Brush, and Edge Concealer Brush. Since these products are fairly new I wanted to share a demo of me using them in a tutorial.

Face Of The Day: Glitter Cut Crease.

A cut crease has always been a tricky eye look for me to create. Sometimes I like the results and other times I think it comes out awful. I've been seeing so many cut creases lately with a glittery crease and I wanted to give it a try. If you don't own a loose glitter pigment then I suggest using a glitter eyeliner. I loved how the entire look came out!
