Beauty Routine…


I am a pretty simple girl when it comes to my beauty routine. I have never used foundation or concealer because well, I never learned how so I just stayed away. I don’t put on lots of make up or spend lots of time on my hair. I’d much rather play dress up in my closet I guess. I always like a fresh clean face with just a little added emphasis. I have been asked a few times so I thought I would share some of my favorite products that I use.


1. Yes To Cucumbers – Natural Glow Facial Towelettes: I hate washing my face. I am way too lazy, so I love these wipes! They smell amazing and they take makeup off really easily. I first got them in a Lucky gift bag at the 1st Fabb Conference and have been using them ever since.

2. Bare Minerials Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: a great moisturizer. I like trying new ones all the time, but for right now I like this one a lot.

3. Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain: I hate lipstick but am a total die hard lip stain girl. These revlon ones are my favorite. Especially Flame.

4.Radiant Cosmetics (mascara, blush, eyeliner): If you have read my blog for a while, you know I have a soft spot for the charity Love146. I have run 2 marathons to raise money for them and will continue to run more. Ending human trafficking and child sex slavery is such a worthy cause, so I was very, very excited when Radiant cosmetics approached me. Their mission statement reads…

“Our mission is the help garner awareness for human trafficking by raising funds through cosmetics.. The cosmetics industry generates $170 billion annually. Women dominate this industry and of the over 2 million human beings trafficked each year, 80% are women and girls. My dream is to awaken a generation of women to not sit back and allow this injustice to happen to our fellow sisters.
My dream is to set the captives free, one lipstick at a time…”

AMAZING, right? They offer a fantastic line of cosmetics. I am a pretty picky mascara user, but their Ultimate Volume Mascara has become my fast favorite.

5. Miss Chere Dior Perfume: MY ALL TIME FAVORITE. <3

  1. Great selections! I am going to try those Yes to Cucumbers face toilettes. They sound very refreshing. And sometimes I am so tired (or lazy) and just don’t want to wash my face. These would be great. Thanks for sharing.


  2. we love Radiant too!! nicole (the owner) is actually a friend of mine. great products!! happy friday!

  3. Oh Jen!!!! Thank you SO much for sharing this Radiant brand!! AH! I am just so excited now. And I am desperately in need of some new mascara and eyeliner, wahoo!

  4. Good to know about Revlon’s Just Bitten lip stain. I was so disappointed with Cover Girl’s. I didn’t stain a thing! I personally love to play in makeup! I have so many colors and brands. It’s a little overwhelming!

    I also wear this perfume (on rotation with a few others). My fiancé bought it for me in NYC, so everytime I wear it, I think about this awesome trip. It smells SO good.

  6. i use these wipes too. so refreshing and great for travel! the burts bees ones are also nice! XO

  7. i am a dior addicted myself, such a great brand. i’m glad to see other girls sharing my taste.

  8. I’m a Miss Dior Cherie girl too! Those cucumber towelettes sound like something I would totally use!

  9. The philosophy behind that make up sounds amazing. I love miss dior cherie too.

  10. Love me some lip stains– Tarte and Revlon Just Bitten are two of my faves. I also have major moisturizer ADD, but I definitely want to check out this Bare Minerals one now! Thanks for sharing!

  11. I agree with you on the lip stain- gloss and lip stick wear off too soon for me to otherwise be bothered about it. I’m not a full-on foundation girl, but I definitely use concealer to cover my under eye circles and because I’m fair skinned I also apply a bit of bronzer to my face! My favourite part is playing with eye liners and eye shadows πŸ™‚

  12. I love those wipes too! It’s the firs wipes I’ve used that doesn’t make my face feel lotiony-greasy, sticky or dry, it’s kind of got a cool/refreshing effect!

  13. I’ve been really interested in checking out the Yes To line and will be definitely doing so soon! Also, Radiant sounds like such an amazing company! I would love to try out a few of their products!

  14. I like your cosmetics selection very much!

  15. Oooo! Thanks for the lipstain suggestion! I bought some yesterday and l o v e it! I never bothered with lipsticks because they never lasted and got all over everything. Especially now with our little one, whom I love to kiss and cuddle, lipsticks just don’t work. I put on the lipstain last night and woke up this morning to still stained lips πŸ™‚ awesome. And there was nothing on my pillow, hubby, or baby πŸ™‚ I think this should work well in the cold Massachusetts winter, especially since it comes with the moisturizer! Thank you thank you thank you πŸ™‚

  16. My sister swears by those wipes! I just found your blog and am so glad I did! You might be my new inspiration, a mom who runs marathons and loves clothes enough to get dressed everyday! I’m training for my first and have trouble getting out of exercise clothes!
