Before putting on any face cream, I always massage some Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair into my freshly washed face. There is no better time to start using anti-aging products than when your skin is still young, and so I make sure to use this serum in the morning as well as the evening. After I wait a few seconds for the serum to fully absorb, I massage some La Mer Moisturizing Lotion into my skin for hydration (If my skin is on the drier side I would use the Creme de La Mer).

I typically shower every morning, so after towel-drying my hair I spray a bit of Bumble and Bumble’s Bb Styling Lotion before brushing and blow-drying my hair. I find that this product really helps when it comes to both straightening and curling my hair because it protects my hair from the heat and makes my hair style with far more ease than if I didn’t use it. 

Lately I have been wearing Tom Ford’s Traceless Perfecting Foundation as the color match fits my tone perfectly. I love the texture of this formula in that it really does glide onto my skin so smoothly and doesn’t streak at all. This foundation definitely creates an excellent natural-looking base. I typically powder my face after and then apply some blush, almost always a MAC Cosmetics blush. For everyday simple looks, this MAC Cosmetics Eyes x 9 Palette provides just about every color I need to create a natural eye (I mostly use the middle shade in the first row, the one to the right of it and the one below it). 

To finish my everyday look I throw on some simple gold jewelry and a pinkish lipstick, and if I have some extra time I’ll paint on a few coats of a neutral nail polish.
