Daily Beauty Routine for Fall

I have been absolutely non-stop since motherhood was added to my list of life activities! And while I love my daily rhythm, the hardest part is definitely making time to take care of myself, too. It’s been a wonderful summer for us (as exemplified over on my IG) — we traveled a ton to see family, ran around with Zoe on hot beach days, had lots of late night gatherings and BBQs with friends and I’m loving the transitional energy into fall now. It’s a chance to reconnect with ourselves after the free spirited decisions of the hotter months and make some changes! I selected a variety of products (some of which I already love and some brand new I’ve never tried) that’ll be featured in the upcoming Stage Stores Beauty Bash and dived into a simpler skincare and beauty routine for fall after feeling the effects of a summer of lots of sun exposure, makeup use and well, dehydration!

After browsing almost all the skincare and beauty goodies, I picked up some Origins products because I’ve heard so much about the brand but never tried it out. I selected things from the GinZing collection, in which the key ingredient is coffee, because of it’s energizing, refreshing and restorative properties of tired skin.

I start off my day by washing my face using warm water and the Origins GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser, which is a 2 in 1 cleanser that gently exfoliates, helps to grab everything out the pores and smells heavenly!

Moisturizer is an absolute must in any daily beauty routine and the Origins GinZing Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Tinted Moisturizer has been such a blessing since there are a lot of days where I’m just looking for a touch of coverage without actually going through the process of applying primer, foundation etc. This lightweight cream does the trick for me and I love how smoothly it goes on! Plus the built-in SPF 40 is so important if you live in a sunny place. Be sure to apply it evenly since it becomes tinted within about a minute. That’s all I use as a base to continue on prepping my face for the day.

I absolutely live for neutrals and that “no-makeup look” when it comes to my daily beauty routine and so when I found the Smashbox Cali Contour Palette in the selection of makeup on Stage, I snapped it up. I own a sister palette to this one and love that so I couldn’t resist! This palette is really complete, easy to use, has 6 shades of a mix of contours, highlighters and blushes. I use it to carve out the face and give a little life to the skin but it can also double up as a quick eyeshadow! Lastly, I enhance the eyes with the Smashbox Super Fan Mascara for modern, fanned-out lashes. The applicator brush has fine rubber bristles (super on-trend rn!) and I love the way it separates out my lashes.

In the evening, I wash off my makeup using the Origins GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser once again and apply the Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask which is essential in my beauty routine. I love the Bamboo Charcoal formula which works to draw out all the dirt and clear your pores. The White China Clay extracts environmental toxins. I layer this stuff on pretty thick because I love the texture of it! After letting it dry down, I wash my face well and moisturize lightly.

I feel grounded and connected to myself through the week through my daily beauty routine. I can’t always get around to all the steps but I try my best to find some me-time. Head over to Stage because this month they’re celebrating Pink October in honor of all things “her”. Browse amazing online (and in-store) “Pinktastic” activations, deals and offers during their Beauty Bash with 14 days of party favors! Let me know in the comments below what your daily beauty routine is? Are you changing it for fall? Have you tried any of these products too, what did you think? Thanks so much for tuning in loves!

A little about me…

Hello there! I’m Ana Free, s’nice to meet you! Thanks for stopping by my lifestyle and mommy blog! I’m mama to a gorgeous baby girl called Zoe as well as a four-legged rescue pooch called Indie and wifey to an Argentinian music producer hunk by the name of Rodrigo (but since that’s too long I always call him Rod haha). I love music, writing and singing songs, traveling, doing my makeup, taking photographs and spending time with my family. The craziest thing I’ve ever done is skydive and the most embarrassing was probably when I peed in protest on the floor in ballet as a child because the teacher wouldn’t let me go to the bathroom (seriously, when a 6 year old says they need to go, you gotta let ’em)!

As with most creatives, it seems I have a million and one passions and this space is where I get to write, share, ramble and post whatever comes to mind in my world. It’s really just all things casual, travels, mama+baby, fashion, makeup, style and me.
