My One-Hundreth Post: Unskippable Steps

This marks my one-hundreth post on Frankly Anouk *cheers*. To celebrate, I've compiled a list of beauty steps I' don't like to skip. Missing these means I don't really feel like me.

1. Moisturizing. I have dry to combination skin, so skipping moisturizer equals a very weird and crackly feeling all day long. One I really like is the Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion (€27.30).

2. Concealer, concealer. Dark circles are a thing in my family, unfortunately. Wherever I go, I need concealer to look somewhat awake. I adore the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (€30.00).

3. Filling in my brows. Though I am blessed with full brows, plucking in my teens has made the tails quite sparse. A little bit of the Maybelline Brow Drama (€7.04) makes me look more put together.

4. Applying mascara. Adding a bit of mascara really opens up your eyes and makes a huge difference. Personally, I think the Clinique High Impact Mascara (€23.30) is amazing.

5. Cleansing. If I don't cleanse my skin at night, I doubt I'll be able to sleep. I prefer balms or oils to cleanse, because they hydrate at the same time. Coconut oil is the perfect cleanser for me.

Which steps do you hate to skip?
