Honey Good's morning makeup routine

Just as every woman has developed their own “look” every woman has developed their own morning routine. We are all so unique don’t you think, darlings? However, I decided it would be fun to give you a look inside of my own morning makeup routine. I know some women do more and some women do less, but I wanted to give you a taste of just what I feel is necessary to do every morning.

Nothing starts until I wash my face. I know not everyone does this and there is a debate about how beneficial it is for your skin, but it’s a great way to wake me up and gives me a fresh palette for my daily makeup. I’ve told you before I use Fresh Soy Face Cleanser. I really like the line and it helps me perk up bright and early each morning. I finish up my face wash with a day cream that is much lighter than the rich cream I use at night. I also chose a cream with regenerative anti-aging properties.

The final addition to my face before I start the fun cosmetics stuff is broad-spectrum sunblock. I use SPF 60 from the La Roche Posay line. This is important for women over 50 whether they live in a warm or cold climate. You can never protect your skin enough from harmful rays! I think this is so important that my foundation also has an SPF of 20. For that, I use La Mer soft fluid long wear foundation.

With a brush, I apply a highlighter. My highlighter of choice is Sisley l’orchidee rose by Sisley and then I use a blush as well. My blush of choice is NARS in Mata Hari. Grooming your eyebrows is also crucial. I use a NARS cream to fill them in. My color is Danakil.

I adore Tom Ford lipstick. I love so many of his colors, however, my everyday lipstick is Tom Ford’s Velvet Cherry. And finally, for mascara, I opt for Chanel Black. I understand the merits of waterproof mascara, but I don’t use it often because it is much too difficult to get off and lashes are so so delicate darlings. We need to protect them!

So that is my process and my products! I would love to hear about your morning makeup routine! Let me know your process is the comments below or join the conversation on Facebook.

I will be taking you into my makeup drawer in a Facebook live next week! Click here for more information!

    Dear Honey,
    I ordered the Clinique mascara. It looks like a good one.
    In some of your pictures there appears to be a white or silver on your eye lids. Can you tell me what eye shadows you are wearing?
    Thank you for your help,
    Susan

      I am wearing underneath my bottom lashes Nars Longer Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner. The color is white. On my eyelids I wear Sisley, White is the name. I am sure you can find the same silver in many brands.I suggest you take a look at my color in the store and compare if you do not want the Sisley brand. Thank you for the compliment. Warmly, Honey

    I love the standing mirror you are using to put on your makeup. Brand?

    • Susan "Honey" Good says:

      It was given to me as a gift over 15 years ago. I am sorry I cannot help you. I do use another mirror also. It is called Simple Human Mirror. You can see very well when looking at yourself, maybe too well. I am smiling. Warmly, Honey

    I love reading about you and learning new things. You are very inspirational and sweet and loving. I enjoy reading about your morning routine. I am embarrassed to admit, since moving to fl. I have limited my routine to a wash and dry facial with a bit of Orlane products. No make-up during the day!!

    The main thing I need some good advice is what magnifying mirror you like. I need a 7x if possible?

    • Susan "Honey" Good says:

      Go online and Google Simple Human Mirror. I think it is what you are looking for. I have one. Their mirrors are unique and you and I can see! It is not the one you see in the photo. I love that you read my musings. I don’t wear much make-up either. xo

    Ah, morning routine – I use Milk Oil Conditioning Cleanser. I follow with YourGoodSkin serum and then, Neutrogena Healthy Skin ( with SPF 15). I find that I need Bobbi Brown warm Ivory, Pale Yellow concealer on contours under eye and on inside of eye near nose. I am happy with Maybelline Dean Liquid Mousse foundation , Cover Girl blush, grey eye shadow, liner and Definicials mascara and Cover Girl Outlast lipstick. This quite a long list, but I’m quick. Just makes me feel better to start the day.

      I find that many of us darlings use several beauty products and not one specific brand, including yours truly. Thank you for sharing. Warmly, Honey
