A few years back I decided to stop wearing foundation and start working on bettering my skin instead. My goal was to better my skin and not have to hide it. I finally mastered a skincare routine I love, with products that are very specific to each need and, brands I adore.
Here's my MORNING skincare routine
If I love more than one product I will give you the two options, I alternate sometimes.
