My Favorite Beautycounter Products:


My simple daily routine – 5 minutes!!

I NEVER let myself run out of these products. EVER.


  • This post has a video showing how I apply my makeup.
  • If you’re looking to overhaul your makeup, the Flawless in Five set has everything you need for a simple, polished look and you save 20% off by buying it as a set.

Makeup I use when I’m doing a little more!

  • Mattifying powder. This has so many uses! Absorbing oil, setting make-up, blending eyeshadow. (Watch my tutorial here.)
  • Necessary Nudes Eyeshadow Palette – I am OBSESSED with this and use it every day. It’s a great option for eyeshadow junkies or people new to eyeshadow since it has so many options to help experiment to find what you like! (Watch my tutorial here.)
  • Liquid liner – This was the first liquid liner I’ve ever used and I LOVE it. Tips for applying liquid liner are in this post!
  • Brow Pencil – I use medium.
  • Matte Bronzer – I like it better than Hoola (and it’s safer). I tend to prefer Matte in the fall/winter and Radiant (linked above) in the spring/summer.
  • Highlighter – I was not a highlighter person until I got this! The three shades are perfect for making me look a little more alive, especially in the winter months.
  • Plumping Mist – helps set makeup and give it a nice even glow. I also use this in the afternoon/early evening when my skin starts to feel dry. We have radiators for heat and it’s SO drying!
  • Lip sheer – Twig is a great natural, daily color. And I get SO many compliments when I wear Rose or Lily.
  • Color Intense Lipstick – Brunch and Garden Party are my favorites!! I also Beautycounter Red — it’s the PERFECT red. I’m wearing Garden Party in the below picture.

My Skin Care Routine

Products are listed in the order I use them, along with AM & PM use noted.

Morning skincare routine

Evening Skincare Routine

Read my review of all Countertime products with before/after photos here.

As needed:

  • Charcoal Mask – I try to use this 1-2x a month. It’s amazing what a difference it makes to help clear my pores and gently exfoliate my skin.
  • Face Oil – I use this when I fly or if my skin is particularly dry. I also use the Supreme Night Cream in the morning if my skin feels extra parched for some reason.

My Beautycounter Side Gig

I’m a Beautycounter consultant and I truly love working for this company. I love their mission, their products and their affordable pricing for high-quality, safe products. I’m super careful about what I put into my body by selecting and eating healthy food, so it’s kind of silly I haven’t been more careful about what I put into my body through the skincare products I use. Not anymore.

I’ve made  a conscious effort to switch to safer beauty and skincare products — and Beautycounter has been the best way for me to do that. I love their products, I don’t have to do a ton of research since I know all their stuff is safe, and it’s not crazy expensive. You can read more about why I became a consultant here.

I really love sharing the best Beautycounter products I discover with my blog readers. And I would love to help you make the switch to safer beauty products too (even if it’s a slow transition, which is what I’ve been doing! Small steps are better than no progress at all!).
