So here’s the deal… I’m not using all of these products every day right now. My routine right now is this… I am trying to let my skin breathe 3 days, and then I’ll do a full face on the 4th day just to feel normal again. 🙂 However, I get so many questions about the products I use – beauty and skincare alike – that I figured, why not put it all in one place? That being said, all of the items listed in this post are my tried and true favorites right now. You probably have seen me using them over and over again. But you know me, once I find something that works, I very rarely deviate!
Shop Emily’s At Home Quarantine Beauty Routine:
The truth of the matter is that I have added some things to my beauty routine lately that I NEVER thought I would have to. IE: a gel light… gel polishes… large packs of fake lashes (I can’t get he magnetic ones to work over my half on half off eyelashes – so those will have to wait) and an eye mask that can be worn over and under makeup. I am sure this won’t end here. We’re all going to be doing our own at home care for the foreseeable future, so I figured I would publish everything here and update as we go!
Elemis Eye Mask:
I am SO thankful I found this eye mask. It is SO amazing, so hydrating, and my dry undereyes just DRINK it up. You can put it on over or under your makeup! LOVE that! I’ve also been loving these eye masks! They are SO hydrating! Ash and I have both been SUPER dry lately and she told me to add a couple drops of this to my face after the shower. I’ve been loving it!
This stuff is the best of the best. I have been using it for years and it really works!
This is what I got – I haven’t yet attempted it though!
Gel Nail Polish:
These colors are just SO pretty!
I got sooo stressed last night I almost picked all the lashes off my left eye! I have been wanting to try magnetic lashes for a while – so I got a couple pairs of those, and I also got a couple pairs of the normal Ardell Wispies.
No matter what – you HAVE to start your day with an SPF. I know what you’re thinking… “even if we’re locked indoors?” YES! It is SO important to wear an SPF even indoors. The UV light comes through your windows too! I have a bunch that I love and I have listed them all below. I also am sharing my favorite full body sunscreen!
This is a great everyday SPF that my aesthetician recommended. It goes on silky smooth and I specifically use this on my forehead where my melasma is worst.
I love this unseen sunscreen – I have been reaching for this one most lately – because of the high SPF and because it doubles as a primer. It goes on silky smooth to the touch, it has a matte finish, and it actually minimizes pores and helps your makeup stay in place.
This is the pump we have by our changing table and we literally slather our kids with this stuff EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I love that it is a pump, it is gentle on their skin, and it is free of any of the harmful stuff you worry about with sunscreens nowadays.
During the summer I like my skin to be hydrated, fresh and dewey. All of these skin products in my summer beauty routine help me achieve that look!
This CC cream is my absolute favorite. It has an SPF 50 built in, it goes on light, and with build-able coverage it is the perfect base for my makeup routine. I wear the shade medium. I apply with my fingers or with a damp beauty blender if I want very light coverage. It is super easy to apply and it acts as a moisturizer as well. This is definitely one of my holy grail products! I use the Medium shae.
I am loving this concealing pot for tougher to cover days. There have been a lot of them lately – let me tell you. While I LOVE my shape tape for my undereye (see below) – this is great for people with darker undereye circles. I even use it on my melasma or any breakouts too!
I have come to realize that you either love shape tape, or you hate it. I used to be one of those people that hated it, until I realized that you have to use it with a very damp beauty blender. We have a highlight on our instagram all about how to do this if you are confused. I use the shade – fair neutral.
This color corrector is my absolute favorite makeup product of ALL time. It is seriously the most amazing thing in the whole wide world and I don’t know how I ever lived without it! You pat it on, under your eyes, with the shape tape and you blend it in as an undereye concealer. It makes the texture of the shape tape and the coverage better. What’s more – it works as a highlighter and gives you this amazing dewey finish! I use the light color.
This powder foundation gives amazing coverage AND takes away any shine you may have. I LOVE IT! I use the color Light Natural.
This anti aging bronzer is amazing. It is very lightweight, not cake-y at all, and the color is universally flattering! I ALSO LOVE THIS ONE BY GUERLAIN!
My eyebrows are microbladed, but I still need a little bit of filling in here and there. I love this brow pencil – it is the best color and literally takes 30 seconds to use! There is only one color too!
This plum eyeliner (the color is burnt sienna) makes blue and green eyes pop. I was in New York and my makeup artist (who also happens to do Rebecca Minkoff’s makeup – if you are familiar with Rebecca Minkoff – she has the most stunning green eyes) introduced me to this product. It is so dark – it almost looks black – but it really is a dark plum color and it makes ALL the difference!
You can’t go wrong with this eyeshadow palate – it is the perfect mix of neutrals – and there is truly something for everyone!
This lip liner – in the color Pillow Talk – actually allows you to overline your lips for a natural looking larger lip. I LOVE IT! I’m not really using it a ton right now – but after this is all over, I know I will!
I talked about this on stories a while back, but I had searched FAR AND WIDE for the perfect nude lipstick. I finally found this one and I bought 5 in case they ever discontinue it. It has a nice creamy texture, it is THE perfect color, and it really stays put if you need it to. I use the color Beige Tribute.
I wear this gloss every single day and I gift it to everyone I know. It is $3.50, it is the perfect nude color, and it isn’t sticky at all. It is nice and smooth and it looks amazing on. Every time I go to buy them, I buy a ton!
I try to use it 3x a week to keep my lips nice and smooth!
I am loving these new chapstick like lip balms from Billie! They are a clean beauty product and SO hydrating!
This brush set is such a steal – amazing quality for under $50!
This beauty blender set is SO amazing – you get 5 for $9! Amazing!
As you all know, Ashley and I are militant about taking care of our skin. Now that we are at home – all day long – taking VERY GOOD care of my skin is easier now than ever. I do a full morning AND night routine every day now! I was gifted a Tatcha skincare set by the brand last year -and I absolutely fell in love. My skin just reacted SO well to it. I mix in my favorite Colleen Rothschild products – and a couple of my holy grail skincare items – and this is my PERFECT skincare regimen!
This cleansing oil works to remove makeup, oil and dirt. It is nourishing on the skin, washes away clean, and leaves your skin feeling nice and hydrated.
I use this after the oil as my exfoliating step. You place a small pour of the Rice Powder in your hand with a couple of drops of water to form a paste, and then you massage it all over your face. I add a bit more water and it starts to foam and works as my second cleanse. It is a gentle exfoliator and perfect for sensitive skin.
I love this retinol program from Beauty Bio so much. It is so potent that you only have to use it twice a year. What I really love about it is that the strength of the retinol builds over the 45 day program so you never get that dry, flaky, chapped feeling that so many other retinol products will give you. I also love that the system uses a retinol/peptide mix – so you’re getting hydration in addition to the retinol. This system just makes your skin GLOW! If you are in your mid 20s – I cannot explain how important it is to start on a retinol program. Retinol aids in cell turnover and collagen production and helps reduce the appearance of find lines and wrinkles. I have prescription strength retinol from my doctor and I actually hate it because of how harsh it it on my skin. R45 is the answer to all the problems I have with other retinol products.
Elemis Eye Mask:
I am SO thankful I found this eye mask. It is SO amazing, so hydrating, and my dry undereyes just DRINK it up. You can put it on over or under your makeup! LOVE that! Use the code: TWOPEAS25 for 25% the whole ELEMIS site too!
This serum is absolutely a GAME CHANGER. Ashley introduced me to it – and I will never go back. Mandelic acid is an AHA – Alpha Hydroxy Acid – that is less intense than say Glycolic Acid, but the premise is the same. The acid/serum chemically exfoliates your skin and leaves you with fresher, softer, and better looking skin. Again- the key is GENTLE. I have very sensitive skin – and this product has helped me SO much!
This is my favorite anti aging face cream – by far. It is very expensive- but IMO it is worth every penny!
This eye cream is simply amazing. If you have very dry under-eyes and need something seriously nourishing and hydrating – this is it. When we met with the Fresh beauty team in New York, they actually told me THE most amazing story about this product. The two founders of the company were in the product development stage and they were traveling abroad in Italy. They were at a monastery and found ancient roman transcripts about a special healing ointment that gladiators used to heal their wounds. This eye cream is based on that formula. How FREAKING COOL is that?
If you are new to face oils – this one is a great place to start. It is moderately priced and makes your skin GLOW!
This oil is pretty much the holy grail of face oils. Celebrities near and far swear by it – and what’s more – the founder is a total doll! It is made from pure botanicals and it evens, brightens, and softens your skin. It is definitely an investment – but it is totally worth it!
As you all know – we LOVE the Billie razor and we are so happy you are all loving yours too!
