Welcome to Byrdie Bedtime, a series where celebrities, editors, and Byrdie readers walk us through their nighttime beauty ritual. Shop all the products mentioned in their Instagram Live below!

While we love scrolling through the Instagram accounts of famous celebrities, makeup artists, skin experts, and hairstylists, we get the most beauty inspiration from our readers. We're serious. Whether we're looking through the photos you tag us in on social media or reading up on the topics that you're talking about in our secret Facebook group (which is called The Beauty Line, BTW), there's always a new and refreshing perspective being offered up for thought and discussion. That's because you guys are beauty experts in your own right. 

As you may know, we host a regular Instagram Live series called Byrdie Bedtime, in which influencers take us through their nightly skincare routines. It's a chance to discover new products and hear first-person reviews. For this next installment, we're not tapping into an influencer's expertise. Nope, we're tapping into one of our readers. Her name is Kendall Onyendu, otherwise known by her handle @sphinxisms. Tonight, she will go live on our Instagram Stories to take us through her expertly crafted routine. Make sure you tune in to see how she cares for her glowy, radiant complexion. In the meantime, shop all of her favorite products below.
