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.
  • If you want more sheer coverage, go for Dew Skin tinted moisturizer rather than Skin Twin. I wear shade 2 or 3 – read my review here. (I use this when I want just sheer coverage.)

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.)
  • 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.
  • Brightening Mist – helps set makeup and give it a nice even glow. I also use this in the afternoon/early evening during the winter months when my skin starts to feel dry. We have radiators for heat and it’s SO drying!

  • iS Clinical Active Peel System – I use this 1-2x a week. The first time I used this, I could not BELIEVE how good my skin looked the next morning! It tingles when you use it, which I LOVE.
  • Charcoal Mask – I try to use this once a week but it’s really more like 1-2x a month. It’s amazing what a difference it makes to help clear my pores and gently exfoliate my skin.
