I’m switching up the normal style based content here for a hot second to talk about another passion of mine that I know you love, too. BEAUTY PRODUCTS. I’m always interested to see what products other people are using, and a lot of what I use has come from recommendations. Over the years I have learned to streamline what I use daily and have come up with some desert island faves.
I’ll keep this short and sweet and get right to it!
Here are my ride or die beauty products:
Fave mascara: It Cosmetics Superhero mascara. There is no better mascara out there, in my opinion.
Concealer/Foundation: I honestly rarely wear anything full face. I DO love the light coverage of It Cosmetics CC cream (it is perfection!) for days when I want to be more pulled together, and also love Bare Minerals Barepro concealer for everyday spot coverage. I recommend getting color matched at your local Ulta or Sephora!
Fave brow pencil: Elf brow pencil in the color taupe (I buy this at Walmart for $2!)
Fave eyeliner: Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero for top liner and Whiskey for bottom liner
Fave everyday lipstick color: Mac matte lipstick in the color Mehr. The perfect mauve-y pink/nude!
Fave natural lip stain: It Cosmetics lipstain in “Je Ne Sais Quoi”
Fave nail colors: Essie’s “Flash” for red. if I get gel or dip nails I ask for “‘white out’ white” color. For black I like OPI Black Onyx. I rarely ever wear colors other than red, black, white or nude;) THIS is the best top coat ever, I typically paint my nails every Sunday and my nails stay unchipped and looking great all week.
Fave face cleansers: I use Colleen Rothschild Cleansing Balm for my first wash (I only double wash at night before bed), and Philosophy’s Purity for my second wash. I buy the jumbo pump bottle of Purity during Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale and it lasts me all year. I keep the big jug in my shower and the small bottle by my sink for double cleansing.
Fave face creams: In the summer/warmer months I use Colleen Rothschild’s Sheer Recovery cream, and during the colder months I use her Extreme Recovery Cream. I am slowly transitioning to these products, I am pretty obsessed with them. They are pricier, but worth every penny.
Everyday sunblock: I have been using Missha Safeblock for 2 years now and love that it is light, melts into my skin, and lasts forever.
Fave body lotion: I buy the big pump bottles of Philosophy lotions and body washes from QVC! They sell the supersize versions and they last a long time. In the winter I choose the scent Fresh Cream, in the warmer months I either buy Amazing Grace or Pure Grace. I like really clean scents that aren’t overpowering. My perfume I wear is Amazing Grace.
Fave Shampoo + Conditioner: I am currently using Alterna Caviar Replenishing moisture shampoo and conditioner and love it, I buy the big bottles with the pumps and they last forever.
Fave hair styling products: I love Monat’s Rejuvenique oil, I use it on the ends of my hair right after the shower, it is amazing! I also am addicted to their dry shampoo and hairspray. You can find the products HERE.
That’s it! I wanted to include the products I tend to buy again and again and these are it.
