So this is a new type of post for me…I don’t consider myself a beauty blogger by any means, but I have recently received several emails asking about my beauty regime/products I use & figured I would also share them here for all to see! I want to start by saying this is what works for me, but these products might not work for you. Also, I know some are a bit pricey but I don’t use a ton of products & all of they last me a long (especially the make-up). I have had a few allergic reactions to several different products & am currently loving these…
one. Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Touche Eclat Radient Touch Pen: I use this as my everyday concealer, especially under eye & around my nose.
two. The Original Beauty Blender: I use this to blend my concealer (above)
three. Clinique All About Eyes Eye Cream: I use this at night around my eyes to add moisture & help prevent wrinkles. I am still in my 20s but wrinkle prevention should start at an early age!
four. Tom Ford Brow Sculptor: I am obsessed and now have a hard time looking at my eyebrows without it! I use the color ‘Taupe,’ but they have several options.
five. Shiseido Eye Masks: The instructions say to use these every other night or so, but these babies aren’t cheap. I mainly use these when I am extra tired & wake with puffy/dark circles under my eyes. I also love to use these while traveling to keep fresh! They also help when you are hungover…
six. Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Shocking Mascara: I used to be a drugstore mascara girl and would always be a sucker for all the latest & greatest. However, this was one of the allergic reactions I mentioned above. I tried this YSL, didn’t have a reaction & loved the “shocking” affect I got. I am a total mascara girl, I don’t wear a lot of make-up but love a good mascara.
seven. Tom Ford Bronzing Powder: I use the color ‘gold dust’ & brush it lightly all over my face.
eight. Beauty Counter Nourishing Cream Cleanser: I just recently started using Beauty Counter products. I now use a few different ones from their line & I am loving them because they are chemical-free & safer for you. I like this nourishing cleanser because it is smooth, smells, good & removes my makeup.
nine. Beauty Counter Rosewater Mist: This is a fab product for a few reasons. I use it during the summer heat when I want to feel refreshed, a quick spray helps tone & soften your skin. It also works well to set your make-up. So after applying your look, a quick spray gives you a dewy glow. It also helps keep your skin hydrated while traveling!
ten. Beauty Counter Purifying Charcoal Mask: I was super excited to try this mask because of the whole “charcoal craze” trending right now. I use it a few nights a week after cleansing before applying face cream. My skin always looks brighter, feels softer & oxygenated every time I use it!
eleven. Beauty Counter Color Pinch Cream Blush Stick: I AM OBSESSED. I use the ‘caramel’ color, even though I want to order them all. It gives my cheeks the summer glow I love. I also use it as lipstick and carry it with me all the time!
twelve. Jack Black Epic Moisture Extra Rich Body Hydrator: My hubby & I love this body lotion. I love it because it is hydrating & soft without a strong fragrance or thick feeling.
thirteen. Tom Ford Illuminating Primer: I have never worn a primer before but wanted to use one for my wedding so that my makeup stayed in place. I was recommended this one because it is lightweight but also has a nice sheen to it that gives your face a great glow.
fourteen. Clarisonic Mia 2 Skin Cleansing System: I use this a few times a week to help get the built up ‘gunk’ off my face. It is a great and easy way to exfoliate. You can find some of their older systems for a bit cheaper on sites like amazon.
