Fall Makeup Favorites

Fall is FINALLY here ya’ll! Who else is excited as I am?! Everything about this time of year makes me SO happy. Pumpkin Spice lattes, fall baking, crisp air, colorful leaves, football…and of course we cannot forget about Fall glam!


Dark lips are my thing, and I am so excited to be able to wear all of my favorite lippies! For Fall, I usually don’t change up my makeup routine too much, typically I just do less shimmer shadow, less shimmer bronzer, basically just tone down the shimmer. I like to stick with more of a matte finish for all of my looks!


Here are some Fall makeup looks I’ve done:


I have listed and linked below all of the makeup products that I used to achieve these looks along with some of my Fall faves! 


Frankie Rose Matte Perfection Foundation

frankie rose

This has been my go-to foundation since my wedding day when I became obsessed with it. It is a matte finish, but not matte where it’s cakey or drying, so if you have oily skin, I still think this would work for you. It lasts all day & is full coverage! I wear the lightest shade in china silk.



Becca Backlight Priming Filter

becca primer

I love this primer year round because it doesn’t make you shimmery. I put this on before my foundation with a damp beauty blender and it gives you a natural glow.



Tarte Park Avenue Princess Chisel Palette


I absolutely LOVE this palette! These are the bronzers I will be using all Fall long because I love warm tones for Fall and this palette has a variety of different shades for every skin tone.



Tarte Tartelette Toasted Eyeshadow Palette


This is a palette you need in your life. I love Tarte eyeshadows so much and this is the perfect eyeshadow palette for Fall. I am obsessed with all of these shades and you can create so many different looks with this palette. It has a combination of mattes and shimmer finishes. It is full of warm tones which are beautiful for Fall and they are super pigmented.



Sigma Beauty Blush in Cor-De-Rosa

sigma blush

This is such a stunning blush for Fall. It is a warm, natural shade that would look gorgeous on anyone!



I love NYX liquid lipsticks so much, so I will list a few of my Fall faves!

Nyx Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks


nyx corset


nxy embellishment


NYX honeymoon


Milani Lipstick in Tuscan Toast

Too Faced Sex on the Peach

27 Things I have learned in my 27 years


 I am SO excited because today is my BIRTHDAY!

I actually am excited to be turning 27 because I have always wanted to be 27 for some reason! I’m sure next year I will be super depressed because I will be closer to 30 and it will be more real that I am getting older. LOL I am that crazy person that thinks that I am so old already and that time is just flying by, but in reality I am just entering real adulthood.

 Keep reading to see all the things I have learned in my 27 years!


1. You won’t be friends with the same people forever. People grow, change and move on, and that is okay.

2. Be yourself. Always. You are a badass and so special and you should honor that. I honor that I am blunt, and have major sass because that’s me and MOST people love that about me.

3. Be positive. One of the hardest things for me. I am that person who is always planning for the worst, coming up with every possible thing that could go wrong in a situation and that is no way to live your life, and I am slowly still learning that.

4. To always take care of yourself. Make yourself a priority.

5. Eat the cookie. Or 5.

6. Life is short. Call your parents and your grandparents and your best friends. You never know what each day brings, and you should always be on good terms with your loved ones and tell them how much you love them.

7. Spend less time on your phone and more time paying attention to the people around you.

8. Death is real and is the worst pain I have ever felt in my life.

9. Wear sunscreen everyday, whether it’s rain or shine.

10. Start the anti-aging skincare process young because it is way easier to prevent wrinkles than to treat them.

11. Never compare yourself to others. Social media makes that difficult because people always show their best photos, and tell the best things happening in their life and that is NOT realistic.

12. Trust the Lord’s plan for your life. You are where you are supposed to be.

13. Be nice to strangers. You truly never know what people are going through.

14. There is no such thing as “too late” or “too soon” when it comes to getting married, having kids, going back to college, etc. You are not in competition with anyone else, so never think you should be married or have kids, etc. by a certain age.

15. You don’t have to go to college to find your passion. School is important but it’s not for everyone. Doing what makes you happy is all that matters. Some of the most successful people don’t have college degrees. You can create your own empire from the ground up.

16. Your health is VERY important. Drink tons of water, exercise, and eat clean foods.

17. Distance yourself from negative, toxic people and surround yourself with positive, uplifting people.

18. Communication is literally everything.

19. My parent’s were right about almost everything. I now see all the lessons and reasoning behind so much.

20. Wine is the best medicine.

21. Have Faith in yourself and never not do something because you’re afraid of what others will think.

22. Appreciate the little things in life.

23. Soulmates are real.

24. Dry shampoo is a gift from above.

25. The bad things that happen in life are a blessing in disguise.

26. YOU are responsible for your happiness, not anyone else.

27. Always try to be better than you were yesterday.


Thank you so much for reading what I have learned in my 27 years! I am so excited to take on another amazing year and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me!

I love ya’ll !!!

Ultimate Glow Makeup Routine



So, I am aware that we are a few weeks away from Fall, which I am so excited about because it’s my FAVORITE time of the year and I literally look forward to Fall all year long! But, living here in the South, it’s still going to be relatively hot once Fall does arrive, so with that being said, I decided to go ahead and share my makeup routine for dewy, glowing skin with y’all. You can use this products any time of the year to achieve that gorgeous glow we all love.

During the Summer I like to use more dewy foundations, luminous primers, lots of shimmer and a lot of the time I like a bright lip! So, below I am going to share what products I use to achieve a glowing/dewy makeup look.

I will give multiple options per product and include what shade I am using for reference.



 CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing lotion

Am moisturizer

It is so important to use an SPF every single day whether it is Summer or Winter. I really love this one by CeraVe. It does have a sunscreen scent so if you’re not into that then this one may not be for you. Their skincare line is super nice, and I have used their moisturizers for a long time. This moisturizer is great for normal-dry-acne prone skin. It is light-weight and non-greasy which I love. It has hyaluronic acid in it & an SPF of 30. I use this right after I wash & tone my face.




I absolutely love this face primer. It has an SPF of 30 just like the moisturizer, so you can choose to use one or the other or use both like I do for extra sun protection. What I love about this primer for one is the smell…holy goodness this stuff smells incredible y’all. If they had this scent in a candle or perfume I would have it. This primer actually blurs away your pores, lines & wrinkles, giving your skin a smooth canvas for your makeup application.  So, after I moisturize I take 2 pumps of this primer and smooth it all over my face.



I love to use this Becca Cosmetics liquid highlighter after I prime for a natural, all over, glow from within. I love having a glowy complexion all summer long, and you can even use this if you have no makeup on for a radiant glow. I apply a few pumps of this to my damp beauty blender & dab it all over my face just as you would applying foundation. Their are lots of different shades other than the pearl, this is just the one I choose to use because I have fair skin. Also- If you use a matte foundation but still want some glow then mix a few pumps of this with your foundation on the back of your hand!




If you’ve followed me for awhile on Instagram then you should know that I love this foundation SO much. It is such an amazing formula for a drugstore foundation. I mix the shades Porcelain and Ivory together to get my perfect match. This foundation blends seamlessly into your skin, and it gives you a medium coverage. It’s non-comedogenic so it will not clog your pores. If you have dry skin and have never tried this, then grab it asap because you’ll be in love. I have normal skin & this stuff is magical to me! It gives you a dewy glow, but nothing too much to where you look greasy. I can’t say enough good things about this foundation, and best part is it’s only $7.99


It cc cream

If you are looking for a lighter alternative to a foundation then the IT Cosmetics CC + Illumination is a must! I am in the shade FAIR and I tend to use this when we go to the beach or if I am just wanting a more natural look for the day. It has an SPF of 50 which is amazing. (I’m crazy about sunscreen + you’ll grow to learn that lol) This is a full coverage CC cream which I love, so it’s not as heavy as a foundation, but still will cover up what you want.





My FAVORITE concealer of all time. I am sure you have heard of this before because almost everyone uses it. It truly is the best I have ever used. I suffer from dark circles #insomina and this is the only concealer I have found that completely covers them with one application. I use the shade Fair Neutral. If you have never tried this I highly recommend it. A little goes a long way, so it will last you awhile. It is full coverage to the max! It will cover any imperfections you have from, a zit, to redness, to dark circles. Holy grail product right here. So, I apply this after my foundation. I apply it under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow, my chin and a tiny amount in the center of my forehead.


Concealer 2

This concealer is perfect dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. It is only $7 at Ulta, and I have been using this a lot more lately vs the Tarte because it’s way cheaper and does the job! It is full coverage and they have a huge range of colors to choose from so you shouldn’t have trouble finding a perfect match for yourself. I use the shades C1, C2 and C3. I use C2 & C3 first, blend that all in with my beauty blender and then use the lighter shade C1 to highlight under my eyes, bridge of my nose, chin & cupid’s bow.



too faced powder

This is a cheaper alternative to the Laura Mercier powder that I have been loving recently. You get the same silky, finish which I love. This powder brightens your skin and has hyaluronic acid which will give you a smoother appearance and this will not clog your pores! It is lightweight and doesn’t dry out your skin! I get asked this question literally all the time and it is “Should I be setting my makeup with a setting powder after foundation and concealer”? My answer is always 100% YES. I know there are people who don’t set their foundation and if that works for you and you like the result then that’s perfectly fine. However, setting your face after applying foundation and concealer will make a tremendous difference in terms of how the rest of your powders go on. So, if you haven’t tried it, then I suggest giving it a shot, so you can see how much a difference it makes. I take my damp beauty blender that I use to apply my foundation and concealer and dip it into some powder and set my under eyes with that and my t-zone. Then, I set the rest of my face with a big fluffy brush.



Alright, so…for the cheapest of cheap setting powder this is the BEST one I have found. It works so well, you can get it at Walmart or Target. I use the translucent shade. It does have a strong scent which I personally don’t mind, but if that is something you don’t like then make sure to check the package before you buy it to make sure you grab an unscented one if they have it!




I love this brow pencil so much and this is the one I have been using a lot more recently. I think it is a great dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow definer pencil. I use the shade blonde, and I really like this blonde shade because it’s not too ashy, but more light brown, which is what I prefer for my brows. This makes filling in your brows so quick and easy. I also really love the spoolie on the end! Best part is it’s only $7.99.




This is one of the best selling mascaras around, and if you have never tried it then you need to NOW! This is one of my go-to mascaras because I love the wand. It gives your lashes the best volume & length so much so that you will never want to use anything else. This does not clump whatsoever and does not transfer. Highly recommend my loves.


Loreal mascara.jpg

The holy grail of all mascara for me. No matter what I l always go back to this mascara or repurchase once I am out. It is that good ya’ll. I have used the original L’Oréal Voluminous mascara and I love that one also, but once I used this I never went back to the original because this one to me is way better because it gives you super black lashes which I LOVE. Best drugstore mascara out there.





This was the first high end bronzer I have ever purchased & it has been one of my favorites ever sense! For my Summer makeup I like to layer bronzer, so I go in first with a matte bronzer & this is usually the one I use because it’s not too warm. It is very buildable and blends well. I love it!


Butter bronzer

I love to use a shimmer bronzer after my Hoola bronzer to give a little sun kissed glow to my face. I don’t like bronzers that are too glittery but more of a soft glow. Also, it smells like Summer so it’s perfect for this time of year. It’s super buttery & silky which I love. I use the light bronzer shade since I do have fair skin, but they do have 3 other shades to choose from.




I have recently been LOVING Pixi products! I picked up this highlighter from them a few months ago at Target & holy crap, it is SO good!  It is super pigmented, creamy & melts right into your skin. There are 2 different highlighters & the one I use is the Delicate Dew. I usually mix these 2 together & highlight the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow & my cheek bones!




I personally love a barbie pink blush for the Summer! This one is one of my absolute favorites. This is the shade beam and I think this shade would look gorgeous on any skin tone. It is oil free, fragrance free & cruelty free! This is a luminous blush, so if you like a more matte finish then this might not be for you. It blends out beautifully!



One of my favorite eyeshadow palettes & I think it is perfect for a Summer makeup look or truly any makeup look because the colors are stunning. There are 12 shades in the palette & I love that you get both matte & shimmer finishes. You get achieve almost any look from this palette so I always recommend this one if you’re looking to invest in a good palette because it’s so versatile. My favorite shades for a summer look are: Flower Child, Funny Girl & Sweetheart.



Covergirl lipstick

This one is an oldie, but a goodie and one of my favorite pink lippies ever! This is a creamy finish lipstick infused with shea butter so it keeps your lips super moisturized. They of course have a ton of different colors, but I love a gorgeous pink lip for Summer.


Tarte lipstick

This is the perfect beachy, pinky-nude lip. I am in love with this shade because it can go great with almost any makeup look. This is a moisture rich lippie and is super pigmented & long lasting. Highly recommend this shade if you’re looking for that perfect nude.


Flower beauty lipstick

Lastly for Summer lip colors is this beyond gorgeous bright, coral shade from Flower Beauty. It is only $8.99 and works so well. If you are looking for a pop of color for your lips then this is the shade to get! I absolutely love it and think its so fun for the Summer time.




Tatcha setting spray

I am sure you have heard about this settiing spray before because it is a very popular product! I LOVE this setting spray so much and it can be used in so many different ways. It is so nice for Summer because it gives you such a gorgeous, dewy finish. Even if you use a matte foundation & all matte powders, just spray this all over your face when you’re done with your makeup and TA-DA, dewy, glowy skin! It can be used under or over your makeup and you will still achieve a luminous glow. To me, this is so worth the splurge.



Lastly, the best setting spray out there (to me). I used this setting spray on my wedding day to set my makeup and it did not bulge in our 100 degree heat here in Charleston. This stuff is the real deal! This keeps your makeup in place for up to 16 hours! Definitely a must have for Summer!




I can not say enough good things about Sigma makeup brushes ya’ll. These brushes are honestly the best I have ever used. I noticed such a difference when I started using these veres my other makeup brushes. The quality is incredible. They don’t shed, and they blend out your products like a dream. My makeup has never looked more flawless. I think this brush set is a great investment if you’re just trying out Sigma. If you ever try out there brushes, be sure to use my code BLONDEBELLE to save some money at checkout!

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

If you made it to the end thank you SO much for reading through all that I use for my Ultimate Glow Makeup Routine. I know this was lengthy, but I love to make sure I list dupes of products and lots of options for ya’ll. I also really love to give you my honest opinion on all of these products so you know what to expect if you want to purchase one.

If you want to see more makeup looks from me like the photos linked in this post then make sure to follow me on Instagram here.

Love y’all!

too faced foundation

I absolutely love this foundation and I have been using it for years now! I am in the shade pearl. This is a full coverage foundation that will give you a radiant finish. It has amazing ingredients to help your skin like coconut water which helps moisturize! It also has hyaluronic acid which gives you a smoother, younger appearance. If you have been on the hunt for a good full coverage foundation now is the time to get your hands on this one at a discounted price!



This is the first high end foundation I ever used. My mom and sister swear by this foundation so I had to try it out and oh my goodness it is magical. This is FULL coverage but it’s not drying or cakey at all. It gives you such a flawless finish! Sephora has 56 different shades to choose from so you are 100% going to find your perfect match. I wear the shade Alabaster.



I love this concealer and I always use this for days when I need some extra lovin’ under my eyes. I have dark circles and finding a good concealer to cover them completely can be tough but this one works wonders. I use the shade light. It is super full coverage and this has never creased on me. A little goes a long way because it is super thick. You will love this and it really helps cover up any under eye concerns completely and helps you look more awake and refreshed.


beauty blender

Before I started using a beauty blender, I used to apply my foundation with a brush, but after one time of using a beauty blender…HOLY.CRAP. what a difference it makes! Your makeup looks airbrushed when you apply it with a damp beauty blender vs a brush. I now use this to apply my foundation, my concealer & to set my under eyes with powder. If you haven’t tried one of these yet, then grab one from the sale. You’ll thank me later.


pore primer

I always repurchase this primer when I am out! If you want smooth skin & no sign of your pores then this primer will be your lifesaver. It is a silky, lightweight formula & blends right into your skin. You will notice a huge difference right away after applying this primer! This is good for both oily & dry skin.



This is another face primer that I really love and use a lot. It is infused with coconut water and probiotics to help hydrate your skin. It is silicone free, so if you prefer a lotion consistency primer then you will love this one. It makes your skin so smooth & glowy & your makeup will go on beautifully after applying this.



If you want more of a glow but don’t use a dewy foundation then you can use this primer! It is easily one of my absolute favorites. This is a primer so it will blur any imperfections you have, while giving you a radiant glow. I have one that I keep in my kit because this is beautiful on brides!



One of the prettiest highlighters I have ever used! It is a soft white-gold with a pinky undertone and I personally think this is gorgeous on every skin tone. I have fair skin but I don’t think it is too gold for me. It is SO pigmented & buttery and people will see your glow from a mile away. Highly recommend.



I love love love this palette ya’ll. The shades are so stunning and range from neutral-berry tones which I think are perfect for Fall coming up! They blend out beautifully and are very pigmented. You get both matte & shimmer finishes. This is a MUST have!



I bought this palette the day it launched and I have been obsessed ever since! These are such beautiful shades for Fall! There are 12 stunning warm shades in this palette both mattes and shimmers. The payoff on these shades is amazing and they have a creamy texture which makes it so easy to blend! If love warm tones like myself, get this palette because it truly is one of the best I own.


setting powder LM

This is the best setting powder I have ever used and the most popular one out there because it is so amazing. It is pricy, so this is the perfect time to get it on sale. It is a silky powder that gives a sheer finish, and I cannot say enough good things about this!



The perfect blush shade out there! It is a peachy-pink with a little bit of shimmer. Perfect for any skin tone & is very pigmented so a little goes a long way! Love this blush!



If you are not into a super pinky blush, this is another one of my favorites! It is more of a peachy tone pink which is so gorgeous on the skin. It is very pigmented so you only need a tiny amount.



No lie, this is one of my favorite makeup purchases of ALL TIME. Everything about this palette from the packaging to the quality is amazing. This palette contains 2 matte highlighters + 4 bronzers both matte & shimmer. I am obsessed with this palette and I use it literally all the time. It is SUPER pigmented so you only need a tiny bit of product so this baby will last you forever.



Another bronzer that I love is this chocolate smelling goodness. I use the medium-deep shade because I swatched the light one and felt like it was way too light for what I would prefer! This is a matte bronzer & gives so much warmth to the face which I love. Oh, and it smells like chocolate which who doesn’t love that?!



Yes, another product from Tarte because they are one of my all time favorite brands! If you need a new mascara, get this one and trust me you will LOVE it! This is a best seller used by tons of makeup artists, and I think it is so worth it! This makes your lashes so voluminous and thick. One of my go-tos!



One coat of this mascara and your mind will be blown! This will give you maximum volume. This mascara makes your lashes so long and so full, so if you are not into falsies or have lash extensions, then this mascara will be your new best friend! I’m obsessed!


Tarte eyeliner

I love doing winged liner and I have been using this eyeliner from Tarte and I think it is so easy to apply & I get the perfect wing every time. It is waterproof and it is a super skinny felt tip liner! It is very black and stays on all day! Love this so much!



I love this brow gel so much! I use the shade neutral light brown. I am currently filling in my brows with a pencil and then going over top of them to set them with this brow gel. It is a tinted gel, that makes your brows more full while setting them in place. You can use this by itself and it will give you gorgeous, natural looking brows.



I saw that Taylor Swift wore this lippie so I of course had to try it for myself because I am red lip kind of gal, and I absolutely love this color! It is more of a pinky-red and this pencil is amazing because you fill in your lips and it stays on all day long! One of my favorite lippies that I have repurchased probably 5 times now!



This is a total game changer and I have been obsessed with this setting spray since I first used it. This will lock your makeup into place for up to 16 hours and I promise you your makeup will not move until you take it off before bed. You need this in your life!




This is the best hair treatment around. I just started using this and difference it has made is incredible. My hair is way stronger & looks & feels so much healthier. If you suffer from frizz or have color treated hair then you need to try this miracle worker.



I use this product after I wash my hair and it is so good! It helps boost shine, tames frizz, speeds up your blow drying time, detangles, etc. It smells amazing and you only need a tiny amount. I always get this little bottle because it lasts me forever!



I love this product because it refreshes my hair instantly and gives me so much volume. This is one of the products I use before I put my hair in my top knot bun. It makes your hair so much fuller, and smells amazing.



I also have been using this texturizing spray lately, and I am obsessed. It gives you instant volume, doesn’t weigh your hair down, keeps my curls and my top knot bun in place all day and it smells incredible!




I have used this cleanser for about 5 years now. The most perfect cleanser that I can never have enough good things to say about. What I love is it melts away all of your makeup completely, and I mean all of it. It doesn’t dry out your skin or strip your skin of any natural oils. It is best seller, a holy grail & I have gotten my family & friends hooked!



I LOVE this lip mask so much! It is a staple in my skincare collection. I use this every night before bed and I am telling you, you need this!!! It is a leave on mask that you keep on overnight and it makes your lips so soft and smooth!



I have been trying to find a good all natural deodorant for awhile & I recently got sent this one from Kopari & this is probably the best deodorant I have ever used. It smells so heavenly, and has a blend of sage oil, coconut oil and coconut water. It is 100% plant based, non-toxic, vegan and cruelty free. It truly does block sweat and oder. I really have been loving this and I highly recommend it if you’re interested in an all natural option.



This is my current self tanning mousse I am using! I really like it!!! It is so easy to apply, dries quickly, and doesn’t have that gross tan smell…perfect right?! Highly recommend!



So, this is SO important to have and this sale is perfect time to snag one! I sleep on this pure silk pillowcase every night and here’s why you need to start: They are hypoallergenic, it is anti-aging (won’t cause face wrinkles), keeps your hair smooth and healthy and it is so soft and comfortable.

Hi, I’m Brittany!



My name is Brittany, and I am a Charleston girl, born & raised. I am a wife and dog mama to my two precious babies. This blog has been something I have wanted to do for so long, but I had so many things holding me back, but this year I finally gave myself the push I needed to begin. I am a self-taught makeup artist, and makeup has always been my biggest passion. Starting back in middle school, always doing my friends makeup in the restrooms before class started LOL. So, after years of practicing, watching every single Jaclyn Hill makeup tutorial on youtube 100+ times, I pretty much knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

Makeup allows me to be myself, and creative and most importantly helps me make women feel beautiful and that in itself is so rewarding to me. I do makeup for weddings, photoshoots, date nights, etc. and I also recently decided to start doing makeup lessons for anyone who wants to learn my tips and tricks or just can’t get the hang of doing makeup, I’m here to help. If you’re interested in booking, you can go to my contact page and message me or contact me through social media. I decided to make this blog because I now have something that is my own where I can be myself, share all of my makeup looks and tips in detail, instead of just in an Instagram caption. I also have a huge love for fashion which I will be incorporating into posts for y’all as well.

I will be doing a FAQ blog post soon for y’all to get to know more about me in detail but for now I will tell you a little bit about myself:

I’m a homebody for sure, but I do occasionally like to go out to a movie or run errands, but I would choose take out, my couch with my hubs and the pups watching Netflix over going out any day. I LOVE football so much and always look forward to watching my games with a giant beer. I am a Carolina Gamecocks fan and a proud New England Patriots fan! I do not have a filter whatsoever and it has always gotten me in trouble…but I don’t really care because that is who I am. If I’m not at Ulta, then I am at Target. I keep up with the Kardashians more than I keep up with my own life. I am always watching the show whenever it’s on, because I am obsessed. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I probably get asked relationship advice more than anything. I have always been obsessed with love and I have seen a lot of different relationships and learned from those and I also have read almost every book about marriage and love out there. Lastly, I love Taylor Swift with all of my being. To me, she is the definition of a perfect role model, and if you don’t like her, then we cant be friends. (Just kidding).

I hope that through my blog posts I can connect with y’all and become closer. I will always be 100% honest in all of my posts and all opinions are my own. I am so excited to share my love for all things beauty, fashion, and lifestyle and I hope that I can somehow inspire you!

If you ever want to ask me anything, don’t hesitate to reach out. I check my Instagram DMs and email daily.

I love y’all!

XOXO, Brit

My Skincare Routine


I am constantly getting comments and DMs from all of you babes on my instagram account commenting on how amazing my skin looks and asking what I use, and first I want to say that I am so beyond flattered by the compliments and questions from ya’ll because to be honest, I have struggled finding the best skincare routine and products for YEARS! Basically, anything you can think of from high end, to drugstore products, I have tried, and none of them gave me the results that I wanted.

I have been using TULA  products for about 2 months now, and holy moly….I am completely hooked, and I have never been so happy with my skin before. I am going to give details below on all of the products I use daily, the order I use them, how I use them, and exactly what they do for your skin.

DAA0F3CD-0C98-44AD-B321-B649AB81D480Before I jump in with the products, let’s talk a little about what Tula products are and what they do for your skin and why I LOVE them so much!

  • They use probiotics as the foundation of ALL their products! Probiotics help lock in moisture, keep your skin very hydrated which I absolutely love, because I have normal-dry skin, and also help with dullness + redness, irritation + inflammation.
  • These products are great for ALL skin types and they are super gentle because they are made with all clean, non-harmful ingredients and they are cruelty free.
  •  They formulate their products with superfoods and safe ingredients which are so great for improving your skin such as, Vitamin C, Vitamin A + E,  AHAs, + retinol.
  • Pretty much everything you are looking for as far as skin improvement + anti-aging, Tula has got you covered.
  • It’s a quick and simple skincare routine, which I love and I know you will too, because no one likes a long, complicated routine.It’s a quick and simple routine, which I love and I know you will too because no one likes a long, complicated skincare routine.

THE BEST PART IS: Tula offers a skincare quiz on their website, which I will link here for ya’ll to take. It is a quick quiz where you answer a few questions about your skin type, and your skin concerns + then you get hand-picked products that are perfect for your skin needs. I took the quiz and then purchased my mini size starter kit (it lasts about a month) and it’s way easier to do that rather than choose random items and go through trial + error to see what works best. Take the quiz here

My Tula Skincare Routine:

  • I start off using the Purifying Face Cleanser which is by far the best face cleanser I have ever used. It is a gel cleanser, super gentle and cleans deep into your pores, removes all of your makeup, and will not strip or over dry your skin. I use this morning and night and my favorite thing about this product is how soft it makes your skin.
  • Next, I use the product that has changed my skin, The Pro-Glycolic 10% PH Resurfacing Gel this is my favorite part of my routine mainly because since using this I have not had ONE breakout! After I wash my face, I apply a couple pumps onto a cotton round, and gently dab it all over my face morning and night. It is an alcohol free toner that removes all dirt, and leaves your skin so smooth and refreshed.
  • I have been using anti-aging products for years, because, it’s easier to PREVENT wrinkles and lines, than it is to TREAT them, and this product is perfect to prevent all signs of aging. So, with that being said The Volume Defense Deep Wrinkle Serum is a milky serum which targets fine lines + wrinkles by combining probiotics with retinol + vitamin c. I have noticed a lot of improvement with this product in just a short amount of time. I use this morning and night right after my resurfacing gel. To apply, I take a tiny pump (a little goes a long way) and rub it together in my hands, then just press (DO NOT RUB) it onto my face.
  • Next is a moisturizer that I use only about twice a week because it is a anti-aging overnight treatment that is only needed once in awhile. That is the Overnight Skin Rescue Treatment I am obsessed with the results of this treatment because my skin looks so dewy when I use this. It helps fine lines + winkles and improves the firmness of your skin. When you wake up in the morning, you will be AMAZED!
  • Next is the moisturizer that I use morning and evening (when I am not using the overnight treatment) it is the Aqua Infusion Oil-Free Gel Cream Ya’ll will be so in love with this bad boy because, they say putting this moisturizer on is equivalent to drinking 8 glasses of water!!! All you need are 2 pumps for your entire face and it sinks right in. No mess, no thickness, this stuff is incredible!
  • About once a week, I use the Dual-Phase Skin Reviving Treatment Pads It is a 2 sided pad that gives you skin softer than a baby, and it is basically like an at home facial. You put use the white side first which applies a serum all over your face, then flip the pad over to the blue side and that is the exfoliation part which you rub in circular motions for 1-2 minutes. Some of the ingredients in this include, lactic acid which gives you a bright complexion. Witch Hazel, which removes excess oil, and Willow bark extract which is salicylic to exfoliate which helps clears your pores.
  • Lastly, a face mask I use twice a week, and you NEED this face mask in your life.  The Exfoliating Treatment Mask It is a detoxifying clay mask which gently exfoliates and improves your skin tone. You simply apply the mask, leave it on for 10 minutes, then wet your hands and gently massage the mask into your face for about 2 minutes, then rinse it off.

I hope that this was helpful for ya’ll. I have truly never been impressed, so happy, and so confident in my skin. Tula has changed my life and I will forever be a fan, and be whole heartedly devoted. I worked so hard on this post (my first post) and I am and always will be 100% honest with ya’ll about everything that I use.

Tula was kind enough to give me a discount code to share with ya’ll:
