Here’s the thing: My daily routine consists of six products (pretty minimal compared with some). And when totaled together, the cost of all those products is $158. Which sounds like a lot when you consider that they all run out at almost the exact same time, and I have to drop a Benjamin and a half to replenish my stock. But then a silver lining appears out of thin air: Yes, this beauty haul may seemingly cost a pretty penny, but it buys me about three months of consistent use. And when you break it out like that, it means my daily routine costs about $1.75 per wear. OK, OK, suddenly that $40 CC cream doesn’t feel so outrageous. Here’s the rundown.

It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+

This blurs imperfections and gives me a radiance that traditional foundation just can’t compete with.

Buy It ($39)


Nudestix Nudies All Over Face Color In Hey, Honey

All the dewiness without the slightest hint of sparkle.

Vapour Velvet Lip Gloss

To further justify this product, I use it for blush, lip stain and eye color. It’s more of a balm than a gloss so it doesn’t leave you super shiny or sticky.

Buy It ($25)


NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil

Comparable to the Anastasia Beverly Hills version, but much less expensive. Which is a good thing because (confession) I actually go through about one of these per month.

Buy It ($10)


Milk Makeup KUSH High Volume Mascara

The tube is giant, so it lasts forever. I also love the consistency it provides after about a month of use, when it’s less wet than a brand new one.

Buy It ($24)


Onomie Radical Setting Mist

It keeps my makeup in place all day and it smells like running through a rose garden. That should explain how I go through five ounces so quickly.
