Erica’s Morning Skin And Hair Routine… Exposed!
A simple routine with some wonderfully specific makeup tips. Thanks Erica! What here have you tried?
Current weather: hot and humid
Hair: brown bob that has tendencies to wave and frizz
Skin: fair and sometimes breaks out on my cheeks and chin
Favorite star or icon from the past: Jean Seberg
In the shower…After hitting the alarm several times, I hop in the shower after drinking my cold brew coffee with almond coconut milk. I use the Acure shampoo in moroccan argan oil on my hair. I don’t follow with conditioner. I soap up everything with Zum soap in lemongrass. Sometimes I use a Clarisonic with Sunday Riley’s Ceramic Slip Cleanser. If I don’t have time to shower, I use Acure dry shampoo and pray it doesn’t look greasy.
Outside the shower…While my hair is still wet I scrunch in Devacurl Frizz Free Volumizing Foam then blot it dry and use a diffuser. I put skin and bones oil all over my face and body. If my skin is flaky, I use California Baby calendula cream on my body. I use Soapwalla deodorant to keep my sweating at bay.
Finishing touches…If I’m not working, I do not put on makeup except for Vapour Beauty Siren lipstick in Tryst. If I am working, I put on a coat of Hourglass Veil Primer followed by Vapour Beauty’s foundation stick and Jane Iredale pure pressed base. RMS living luminizer goes on my cheekbones and brow bones. I use Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in black and curl my lashes before putting on Jane Iredale’s Longest Lash mascara. For a bit of color, Vapour Beauty Mirage Bronzer and Jane Iredale’s lip and cheek stain go on last. I mix Ilia Beauty’s lipsticks in Funnel of Love and Wild Child for the best bright pink.
Before I head out the door, I spray on Lotus Wei quiet mind and Infinite Love energy mists. I keep Infinite Love in my purse and spray it on my coworkers before a long night at the restaurant. It keeps us all happy and full of smiles.
