My Beauty Routine

I know no one has probably ever thought “wow, I wonder how Sahra does her make up”, considering I barely seem to wear any. But that being said, I have clean skin for a reason, and I still wear some quality products, so here’s my ode to those items that make me more comfortable in my own skin. Let’s start off with a picture of my uneven, make up less, face:

I always start with my Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control scrub. Then, with a fresh, dry face, I apply my Bare Escentuals matte foundation.

Disclaimer: I’m aware this shade is not correct for my face. I’m currently in between their lightest shade and this. I spent the money on this one and figured I’d just use it up until my summer skin fades back to their palest shade and then I’ll purchase that one. For now, though, this suffices and doesn’t look as bad in person as it does under the macro setting of my camera lens.

Next, I usually put on some eye shadow from my YSL palette before applying my eyeliner. I use Kat Von D tattoo liner in “trooper” and I swear you can’t get a better liner! The pen-like style makes it easy to handle, and it’s COMPLETELY smudge proof. Seriously, go to Sephora, draw a line on your hand, and then try to swipe it off-it won’t work.

The last step for my eyes, I use this Givenchy extension mascara. I love the subtlety of this mascara, and the round tipped brush is perfect for applying evenly. Lastly, I dab on some of my YSL lip gloss (the stay is long, and though it’s a gloss, it’s not overly sticky or shiny), and some Daisy by Marc Jacobs perfume. I have the bottle, the lotion, and the roller ball for this perfume so I’m never without my signature scent!

and Voila! My basic everyday beauty regimen!

I’m also thinking of doing an upcoming post about all my favorite lip gloss’ and sticks, what do you think? Let me know your thoughts on my beauty routine!

  2. time for a new foundation! that color doesn’t match or blend well–yikes! its given your skin a patchy yellow/peach tone.

  3. FAbulous beauty routine! I’ve always wanted to try that Givenchy Mascara, you are tempting me into buying it. Love your blog!

    Easy is best! 🙂


  5. I use Bare Minerals too! It goes on so easy. I literally just figured out how to line my eyes well last week…before then I would end up looking like I was punched or without liner at some point in the night.

  6. You look beautifull babe:)

  10. I always love to see people’s beauty routines. Love the products you’re using : )


  11. Sahra I love your post, nice touch adding photos for each step. I like how you use the makeup to enhance your natural beauty. I will have to check out the eyeliner you used, I am an eyeliner junkie, currently using Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Rockstar.

  12. I like how you showed pictures for each part. I sure don’t have the courage to show the internet my face without makeup! I tried the Givenchy mascara, but I never really liked it, I’m glad you got it to work well for you though!

  13. I want the givenchy mascara, I can’t find it anywhere. You are so cool! Interesting how we both have the same undercut style!

  15. YAY for using the best mascara ever!!!!! 😉

  16. I adore your hair. Anya on this season of Project Runway has something similar. Have you seen it? I’m obsessed now. You pull it off very well. I don’t think I’ll ever get the guts to do something similar. 😦

  17. Acne is really a debilitating disease both on the physical and psychological aspects. It can scar the confidence of a person. ;
