Simplify, simplify, simplify — that’s my beauty mantra for spring.
Real talk: these days, there’s no such thing as lazy mornings or nights for me. So getting a beauty routine in is a matter of self-commitment, even if it’s only five minutes in the morning. Back-to-basics skincare, pared-down makeup, and pulled-back hair — that’s the spring swing I’m getting into. And honestly? It’s really refreshing to streamline my routine and make sure I’m giving my skin and hair the care they need. These are the Honest Beauty musts I use every day.
The skincare staples I reach for without fail are cleanser and moisturizer. I love how gentle and light-weight the Refreshingly Clean Gel Cleanser feels and the subtle glow Even Brighter Everyday Moisturizer gives my bare skin. If I’m feeling puffy from sleep-deprived nights (I’m looking at you, mama schedule), I’ll pat on a bit of The Depuffed Eye Gel. I’m also addicted to the Magic Balm — no exaggeration, this stuff really is magic. It soothes, softens, and gives my skin a touch of dewiness. Touch and glow? Done.
I don’t have 30 minutes every morning to work on my face, so I’m really embracing the less-is-everything approach to makeup these days (and I’ve gotta say, I’m loving how my skin is looking). A dusting of silky Luminizing Powder gives me just the right amount of luminosity without looking overly bright and a sheer swipe of my go-to Truly Kissable Lip Crayon strikes the perfect balance of color, shine, and moisture for lips that truly feel amazing. I don’t feel done without mascara, so I always finish with a quick coat of Truly Lush Mascara + Lash Primer — don’t skip the primer! The added volume is totally worth the extra minute.
I’ve been pulling my hair back into a slick pony a lot lately. It’s my no-nonsense, ready-to-go look that requires almost zero effort on my part, but still looks bomb. After washing my hair with Beyond Hydrated Shampoo and Conditioner, I spray my wet hair from root-to-midshaft with Moisture Milk first, then Heat Defense Spray second. Those two work wonders together to protect and smooth my hair while adding shine. Brush back while blow drying to get that sleek, slicked back look before pulling it all back into a pony. If you’re going to use any heating tools, make sure your hair is fully dry first.
