rylie before noon

as a creature of habit, i’m all about consistency, especially when it comes to my routine. in my opinion, the way you start your day sets the tone for how the rest of it will go. here’s the full breakdown of my routine before noon…

HOP approved / ‘the face’ illuminating drops x tan-luxe

i (Brittany) am a self-tanner newbie. before Rylie convinced me this was the best she’s ever found, it had been years since i had a faux bronze. i was very skeptical at first, but once i saw the results for myself, i was hooked. it doesn’t stain sheets or clothes, and the color is perfection. it contains raspberry seed oil, vitamin E and aloe vera to nourish the skin, and the DHA tanning active is eco-cert organic. i also use it on my body in the ‘light/medium’ shade- Rylie prefers the ‘medium/dark’

 

how to use
-mix 1-3 drops to your usual moisturizer or body lotion and apply evenly to bone dry skin
*make sure to shave & exfoliate before applying*
-wash hands thoroughly after application and avoid feet
*we like to apply in the AM and rinse off late afternoon*

how to avoid makeup harming your skin

if you’ve ever bumped into either of us on an average day, we’re typically wearing little to no makeup. that may sound obnoxious, but it took us some time to get here. while it’s our goal for every client to get to a place where they feel comfortable enough to walk out the door with only tinted SPF, we understand it takes baby steps. we often hear clients say, “i could never go out in public without makeup, that would scare people!” the fact is, if you go to work with a full face of makeup sitting on your skin for 8-10 hours a day, it’s bound to cause damage

here are the steps we took to achieve makeup-free skin…

while we always prefer to carry-on as checking a bag is far too risky, we could never sacrifice leaving our essentials behind…

the only towel that should touch your hair

this towel has changed our lives. whether you prefer to air-dry, or blow-dry those tresses, using a turbie twist post-shower is a game-changing essential. it absorbs water five times faster than a traditional cotton towel, cutting your drying time in half. it’s made of super absorbent microfiber (same cloths we use on our face) and is extremely gentle on your hair during its most fragile state (you never want to use anything abrasive on your hair while it’s wet, because that’s when it’s most prone to breakage). it’s lightweight and fits snugly around your head unlike a traditional heavy, bulky towel and makes getting ready a breeze…

the perfect mascara

finding the perfect mascara is like searching for a needle in a hay stack. they either flake, clump, or worse, run (there’s nothing like taking a trip to the ladies only to discover you look like the girl from the ring. its honestly made me question friendships. i mean, if your friends won’t tell you, are they really your friends? food for thought). anyways, our journey to find the perfect mascara was starting to seem impossible, until one day the crowds parted, and we were introduced to our savior

we’re not going to give you a list of recommendations, we’re only going to talk about one mascara. why? because we both use it, love it, and honestly haven’t found anything else that lives up to it. so, without further ado, and because we love you, here you go….
