My Favorite Beautycounter Products:


Listed in the order I apply. 🙂 I don’t use all of these every single day since I vary my routine but this is everything I use consistently!

  • Dew Skin tinted moisturizer. I wear shade 2, read my review here.
  • Tint Skin Foundation. I wear Linen in the winter and Sand in the summer. I usually mix the Dew Skin and Tint Skin for medium coverage – I put a little drop of each on the back of my hand and use this brush to apply. This is the first foundation I’ve EVER liked — you can read my review in this post!
  • 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!
  • Liquid liner – This was the first liquid liner I’ve ever used and I LOVE it. It lasts all day without smudging and I’m slowly getting better at straight lines! Tips for applying liquid liner are in this post!
  • Blush – I either use the Cream blush (read my review here) or the Satin Blush in Nectar or Guava.
  • Bronzer – the best bronzer I’ve ever used! I like it better than Hoola (and it’s safer).
  • Highlighter palette – 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.
  • Concealer Pen – I use the Light shade and I freaking love this concealer.
  • Brow Pencil – I use medium.
  • Plumping Mist – helps set makeup and give it a nice even glow.
  • Lip sheer – Twig is a great natural, daily color. And I get SO many compliments when I wear Rose or Lilly. For a natural look, I LOVE the transforming duo!
  • Color Intense Lipstick – Brunch and Garden Party are my favorites!! I also LOVE the new shades in the minis set and Beautycounter Red is the PERFECT red.
  • Lip Gloss – I am OBSESSED with the Rosewood, and the Spice in this nudes trio set. I was NOT a lipgloss person before discovering Beautycounter’s lipgloss!
  • Mascara – my two favorites are Better than Sex and Trish McEvoy. (I personally don’t really love Beautycounter’s mascaras.)

My Skin Care Routine

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



  • Eye Make-up Remover – so gentle but takes off makeup easily.
  • Cleansing balm or Cleansing Milk. They’re both so moisturizing and amazing for removing makeup. I use them both but tend to use the balm more in the winter.
  • Toner pads
  • Radiance Serum  – this made a huge difference in my skin brightness! (Read my review here.)
  • Overnight Resurfacing Peel – I think EVERYONE should have this product. It’s incredible. It helps with dullness, large pores, scars, spots, everything. And it’s safe for sensitive skin too. I use it 2-3x a week in place of the radiance serum.
  • Face Oil – This is a game changer for dry skin. I use #1 Brightening.
  • Countermatch Sleeping Cream
  • Charcoal Mask – I try to use this 2x a week. It’s amazing what a difference it makes to help clear my pores and gently exfoliate my skin.

I’m a Beautycounter consultant and I truly love the company – 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’m making 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.

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!).
