How have we all been? I feel like I've finally got myself into a routine that doesn't make every day feel like a drag. I'm not currently working, like so many others, and thought I would channel this new found time into picking up an old hobby - blogging. If you follow me on Instagram (@bymilliee) you'll know I haven't abandoned the beauty industry completely, but I have found it difficult to get back into the swing of things when it comes to my blog. To ease myself back in, I wanted to share some of the products I've been reaching for over the last couple months. My beauty routine has been super low-key and minimal, and I haven't really been wearing much makeup, at least not every day. 

A lovely base if you don't want to wear a full-coverage foundation, but you do want a more even complexion. As far as tinted moisturisers go, I adore this one, and the SPF is an added bonus. It leaves a lovely, radiant finish, and I don't find it leans too much on the oily side throughout the day. Being a tinted moisturiser, you do get some added skincare benefits, such as hydration, but I would still always recommend applying on clean, moisturised skin. This was the first non-powder product I tried from Bare Minerals and I definitely want to delve deeper into their liquid foundation range. 

This is almost the concealer version of the BM complexion rescue - a tinted lightweight product, packed full of skincare benefits as well as pigment. I really am starting to see a trend here...I can't stand my under eyes feeling dry and tight throughout the day, so I always prefer to reach for something more hydrating. If I was wearing this out and about I would set with a powder to prevent creasing, but I don't really find that super necessary when I'm not leaving the house. 

I have been trying to maintain the glow in my skin and these drops have been giving me that "you've been out in the sun" look. You don't have to faff about with a body tanner and a mitt, you just simply add a few drops to your moisturiser and you're good to go - it really is that simple. I love how radiant and glowing these drops make my skin look, another reason why I'm totally OK with going makeup-free, or opting for a very light coverage base. It doesn't smell too funky, and I haven't found it leaves any orange patches.

This is one of my all time favourite skincare products, and thankfully this seems to be lasting me ages. It's like a drink of water for the skin, leaving it a lot more luminous and smooth. I tend to use this after my toner, and before I go-in with any serums to help add another layer of hydration. An essence was certainly a product that I didn't know I needed in my routine, but I can't see myself being without this one now. The anti-pollution benefits are also great, although not really needing those too much now I'm not on and off the tubes!

Another Fresh product I'm in love with - their balms really are worth every penny. The caramel is also a firm favourite, but I currently using this coconut scent and it's heavenly. I seem to be applying lip balm every chance I get, I've never had so many on the go at once. I always go back to this one as it feels super hydrating and nourishing on the lips. It also doesn't sink it straight away so your lips feel hydrated for longer.
