While my more public persona is the founder and editor for SiddySays, I identify more with being a mom and working woman on an average day. This means that in addition to the more glamorous side of life, I have a fairly hectic day on day routine which honestly barely has any room for luxurious indulgences. I therefore have to be very particular about my product choices as they do more work for my physical appearance than I do 🙂
Morning: I start the day with a splash of cold water on my face. I have extremely confused skin, the kind that gets dry if I use any face wash (and God knows I have tried a lot) and gets oily if I put a moisturizer so water is all I use. I religiously apply the Kiehl’s Line Reducing Eye Brightening Concentrate under my eyes and Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream with SPF 30.
Make Up: Going to work 5 days a week means I have a very practical make up routine in the morning. I swear by my Mascara(s) and Eye Liner without which I can’t look awake! I use a cocktail of Mascaras not just one… My collection includes Curl Addict Mascara by Luscious, Dior Addict IT Lash and a couple more! I use a MAC eye liner which I have for years and years now.
I highlight my cheek bones with a bronzer instead of a contour kit (that’s my secret to natural looking cheek bones :)) I use Bobbi Brown’s bronzer. I wear pinks on my lips during the day and some of my favourites include Bobbi Brown Uber Pink, Dior Coral Trip, and Luscious Glamorous which is a sparkling peach shimmer.
I use Chanel Vitalumiere Loose powder paired with YSL touché eclact to keep my skin looking even. I don’t use a base or foundation regularly unless I’m dressing up for a wedding or something 🙂
Night: I use Bobbi Brown’s Essential Cleaning Oil to remove make up and again a Bobbi Brown Toner before applying Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream and Blue Therapy Night Cream by Bio Therm.
