The EveryDay DLEX Skincare and Makeup Morning Routine

Written by: Francesca P.

The DLEX morning routine for skincare and makeup is all about elevating your natural beauty. Follow us as we go through some killer products that will take you from sleepy raccoon to urban goddess!


Skincare Routine with several creams on white background
1. The Cleanser with blue bubbles
Glossier's Milk Jelly cleanser


Glossier - Milk Jelly Cleanser ($18)

This cleanser is a godsend! So many cleansers are very abrasive and strip the skin of it’s happy oils and layers of protection. Glossier’s Milk Jelly is suuuper gentle and refreshing for your skin and it’s vegan and cruelty free!



2. The Toner with cream on pink background
OLEHENRIKSEN - Glow 2OH Dark Spot Toner in blue bottle


OLEHENRIKSEN - Glow 2OH Dark Spot Toner ($29)

Alot of people do not use a toner in their daily routine but for me this baby is a must! It acts as a last line of defense on cleansing if there is anything you missed. And it firms up/improves the evenness of your skin soooo much.



3. The Serum with 2 bottles on white background
Drunk Elephant - C-Firma™ Vitamin C Day Serum in white and orange bottle


Drunk Elephant - C-Firma™ Vitamin C Day Serum ($80)

Vit-C serums are really the way to go! They protect your skin against premature aging and sun exposure. They even promote collagen growth to keep your skin super bouncy. Drunk Elephant’s serum is certainly the best for this price point!



4. The Eye Cream in glass dish with wooden spoon
La Mer Eye Concentrate in green pot


La Mer - The Eye Concentrate ($235)

If there is anything worth splurging on it’s any eye cream. The La Mer Eye Concentrate is legendary. Their patented Miracle Broth reduces the appears of circles, lines, discoloration. You will look like Aphrodite being born from the sea’s foam.



5. The Moisturizer being put on hands from blue tube
Tatcha The Water Cream in blue / green pot


Tatcha - The Water Cream ($68)

Tatcha is all around an incredible skincare brand. For me The Water Cream is their MVP. It’s super light, oil-free, and Xtremely moisturizing.



and finally The Sunscreen being put on woman at the beach
Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum Face Sunscreen Lotion SPF 42 in white bottle


Shiseido - Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 42 ($48)

You may be thinking...this is a very tiny $50 bottle of sunscreen. BUT! If there is one thing that the skin absolutely needs every day it’s sunscreen. The sun does so much damage to your skin that you can basically do more by wearing sunscreen then by using all other skincare products. The Skiseido sunscreen is great because it feels like nothing is there and doesn’t leave a white cast on your skin.



next up Makeup Routine with woman smiling
1. The Foundation, makeup bottles
Dior Airflash Foundation


Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation ($62)

The Dior Airflash Foundation is honestly incredible. It’s not too heavy and gives you an even tone that looks like your skin but better. And you will have alot of fun spraying it onto the back of your had for the first time!



2. The Concealer, compact
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer


NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer ($30)

NARS can do no wrong in my opinion. Certainly this concealer is proof of that. It doesn’t crease easily, it’s long lasting, and doesn’t run. Annnnd their shades are super brightening and flattering.



3. The Palette, makeup
Illume Sheer Color palette from Hourglass


Hourglass - Illume™ Sheer Color Trio In Sunset ($62)

The Illume Sheer Color palette from Hourglass is a bit controversial but for me, it is a 4 in 1, bronzer, blush, highlighter, and eyeshadow that does a perfect job. Especially love using the brown as an eyeshadow for a natural smokey look.



4. The Powder, compact with mirror
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish setting powder


Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder ($45)

Charlotte Tibury is a make up wizard. Their setting powder is no exception. Goes on super smooth and even with cream or power products. And if you have dry skin and don’t need a powder, go with a dark.



5. The Eyeliner with woman's eye
Highliner Gel Eye Crayon from Marc Jacobs


Marc Jacobs Beauty - Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner ($26)

The Gel Crayon from Marc Jacobs is such an easy liner to use. It’s extra creamy and malleable and has a consistent color. You will never use another eyeliner again!



6. The Lipstick, red lipstick in silver tube
Velvet Teddy Matt Lipstick from MAC


MAC - Matt Lipstick Shade Velvet Teddy ($19)

Velvet Teddy Matt Lipstick from MAC was made into a cult classic by Kylie Jenner but it is 100% warranted! This color is the perfect nude: not too muddy, not too light, with a tinge of rose. And gotta love that classic MAC lipstick smell.



7. The Mascara, black mascara brush
Monsieur Big Mascara from Lancome


Lancome - Monsieur Big Mascara ($20)

Monsier Big is definitely the king of mascaras. It is supppper volumizing and extending. Basically like putting on fake eye lashes. Life will just be more fun with this mascara.



and last 8. The Brow Gel, woman's eyes
Clear Brow Gel from Anastasia


Anastasia - Clear Brow Gel ($22)

The Clear Brow Gel from Anastasia is another legend in the beauty world. Whether you have natural brows or build them up with a pencil, this guy makes sure that all your run away hairs stay in one place no matter what!
