Hi friends!

Hope ya’ll are having a beautiful day.

I wanted to share my new makeup routine with you.

I recently had a check-up at my dermatologist here in Boynton Beach, FL.

Since I have been battling with cystic acne ( uhhh, hormones!!!) they recommended that I use makeup that are non-comediogenic, meaning – non-pore clogging.

I have always used oil-free makeup, but apparently they felt that it must state of the packaging that the product is NON-COMEDIOGENIC.

So, my search for new makeup began.

I fell in LOVE with the Bare Minerals Pro line.

It is a cake-free, full coverage  powder foundation that feels like you are wearing nothing. You heard me ladies, nada!

I have always worn liquid foundation and then  topped it off with a powder, but this is only 1 step.

Before I put the foundation on, I always moisturize with either

or

or

*** on days where I don’t want to wear makeup, I use this Elta MD tinted moisturizer for a little coverage.

I also found the brand Physicians Formula, which they sell at many stores like Ulta, Target and even Walmart.

It is an affordable brand that states is super clean in its formula, and again, non-comediogenic.

I went with their blush,

and mascara.

And while I was at it, I decided to take the non-toxic route with my nail polish as well.

For a few years now I have been a huge fan of the Nexgen nails, but since they are laden with chemicals that seep into your skin, I decided to switch over to Mineral Fusion and Gabriel Cosmetics.

They are 100% vegan and free of Formaldehyde, Camphor, TPHP, DBP and Toluene. (Those ingredients can all take a toll on your body, immune system and are linked to causing cancer.)

What is your makeup routine? Do you use non-toxic, non-comediogenic products? If so, what are your favorites?

Have a good ones, beauties!
