I'm a relatively newbie to makeup as I didn't really start wearing anything beyond mascara and eye shadow until a few years ago. Two years ago, I let my 16 year old cousin (and aspiring doctor/makeup artist) update my makeup. Little did she know she was creating a monster!
I've always had acne prone skin (even now...), so I try to be careful with what I put on my face. I got a Clarisonic for Christmas a few years ago, but only started using it religiously 2-3x week for exfoliation and a deep clean 6-8 months ago. My skin feels softer and smoother now that I've been consistently using the Clarisonic. I've also started using the Josie Maran argan oil as a night moisturizer. It absorbs quickly and doesn't feel oily at all. I love it and would use it in the day if I could find a good sunscreen to pair it with.
In terms of makeup, I've fallen in love with this Giorgio Armani foundation. It gives a beautiful glowing, slightly dewy finish that I love. It is expensive but so worth it and a little goes a long way. I'm also obsessed with this NARS pencil. It is very matte (but not drying) and last almost all day. I'm already trying to figure out what colors I need for spring!
I know it looks like I use a lot of expensive products, but I also have some great drug store favorites including L'Oreal Voluminous mascara and ELF eyeshadow.
