Day & Night Beauty & Skincare Must-Haves

Lately I have been beating myself up a lot feeling that my skin is glowless and my makeup dull. It's always these moments when you are being too hard on yourself that someone else randomly affirms you against your own self-loathing. I was walking through Zara on Friday and  a woman approached me and asked, "What do you use on your skin? It's flawless!" Seriously, where was this women 3 weeks ago?! After weeks of beating my skin up and worrying about late 20s aging signs, the universe just affirmed that I'm doing something right. So in celebration of my skin, I thought I'd share with you what I do to keep my skin looking great day and night as a busy, working, girl about town.

These products are my tried and true favorites and take me from work to networking- beauty intact!

Clockwise from top: MAC Longwear Pro Concealer ($17), Benefits Zing Brows Kit ($30), IMAN Time Control Undercover Agent Primer ($15), Givenchy Phenomeneyes Mascara ($30), Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($19)

My skincare regimen is pretty basic but the most important product I use is my Neostrata face wash. It's gentle and soap-free leaving my skin clean but not parched. My dermatologist put me onto it and I've been hooked since 2009. Not to mention, the Comodynes face wipes from Trader Joe's are so soothing after a long day and night.

Clockwise from top: The Body Shop Natrulift Firming Night Cream ($30), Comodynes Make-up Remover Towlettes for Sensitve Skin from Trader Joe's ($5), Cetaphil Moisturizer with SPF ($10), Neostrata Face Wash ($28)

Any recommendations for a good exfoliating face scrub and eye creams for sensitive skin?
