What I Put On
My Face: A Memoir
Eden Davidovici, Karma’s Email Marketing Manager, shares her daily beauty routine.
We’re already taking notes and ‘adding to cart’.
Hey guys! (too “influencery”?) So, here’s the thing: I’m a sucker for beauty stuff. My favorite brands can literally launch a “left elbow super-cream” and I’ll probably be all over that. But I’ve had to do quite a bit of research in order to get my face glowing like I wanted it to.
Today I’m proud to say that after a few trial and errors, my bathroom cabinets are seriously inspired as I’ve discovered some amazing products. From the hydrating goodness of Drunk Elephant moisturizer to the magic of the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand, my skin is now looking better than ever.
Sure, these products aren’t your typical over-the-counter bargains. However, with Karma, you can score all of these high-quality items for a fraction of the retail price. Plus, with each purchase, you can earn actual cash back. SO, get ready to pull your hair back and take some serious notes, because it’s time to get glam.
Step 1: Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Before we start getting all dolled up, let’s make sure our skin is properly hydrated. I use Drunk Elephant’s Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser to cleanse my face and follow up with Protini™ Polypeptide Firming Moisturizer for a hydration boost. This stuff is like a glass of water for your skin and helps create the perfect base for your makeup.
Step 2: Prime Time
Next up, it’s time to prime and protect. I always use Supergoop! Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 for a radiant glow and added SPF protection. This step is non-negotiable for me, especially since I’m always out and about.
Step 3: Get Your Bronze On
For a quick and easy way to warm up my complexion, I opt for the Hoola Benefit Bronzer. This cult-favorite product has a natural, matte finish and is perfect for adding some definition to your cheekbones.
Step 5: Lashes for Days
Next up, it’s time to make our lashes look long and luscious. I use Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Stay Vulnerable Mascara for a bold and beautiful look. And for a little extra oomph, I swipe on some Benefit Benetint on my cheeks and lips for a pop of rosy color.

Step 6: Contour Like a Pro
When I want to step up my game and look a bit more chic, I reach for Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Contour Wand. This magic wand is perfect for creating a flawless, defined complexion. And don’t forget to line your lips with the Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk Lip Liner for a subtle yet sophisticated touch.

Step 7: Keep it Glossy
And last but definitely not least, I always have my Grande Cosmetics GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper Gloss on hand for a little extra shine. This lip plumper not only gives my lips a glossy finish, but also hydrates them for a fuller and more voluminous look.
And there you have it. So, whether you’re heading to school, work, or just running errands, these products will help you feel confident and ready to take on the day. Feel free to experiment, try new things, and most importantly, have fun with your face.
Bonus Tip: Before heading to bed, I always apply La Neige Lip Mask to keep my pout looking plump and hydrated. Trust me, on this one.
