As you can probably tell, we have a thing for poking around into people's everyday makeup routines. We just can't help it—it's such a convenient way to get some real product recommendations and beauty inspo for our own routines. And from now on, whenever we're going for a clean, minimal face, we're looking at photographer-slash-influencer Kimi Juan-Caja's regimen. Check out her cruelty-free routine below!
"I don't leave the house without SPF," says Kimi. She massages this sunscreen from Dermalogica onto her skin before putting on makeup to block those UV rays.

Kimi likes to steer clear of heavy base products for her daily look. "I just personally don't like the feeling of putting foundation. I don't like the feeling of powder and I feel like I'm going to stain all my clothes if I wear foundation, so I just spot treat my face with this concealer," she explains. She blends a creamy concealer with a dewy finish to hide discoloration under her eyes, nose, and around the mouth. (Read all about using concealer as foundation here!)

The photographer loves using a sheer berry-colored tint to give her tan skin a natural flush. She blends in the cream with her fingers, and then applies creamy highlighter on her cheekbones, nose bridge, and cupid's bow. Her go-to? RMS Beauty's Living Luminizer—"What I like is it's not glitter highlight, so you wouldn't catch yourself having spots of glitter on your face, which I hate," Kimi says.

Since she had her brows microbladed (a neat hack if you want to shorten your makeup routine), Kimi doesn't need to do much to her arches. She just brushes through them with a tinted brow gel from clean beauty brand W3ll People to fill in any areas that need a little extra definition.

"I don't wear mascara every day and I don't curl my lashes because I get [them] lifted," the influencer shares. But when she does want some drama on the eyes, she wears a non-waterproof mascara that keeps her lashes up all day.

For a natural lip look, Kimi dabs on a little bit of matte lipstick in either a peachy brown or a blush nude hue—whatever floats her boat for the day.
