Must Have Beauty Products

I always get a ton of questions and comments about my favorite beauty products so I thought I’d create a post that included all of them!  I swear by this face wash.  I’ve tried several face washes over the years (everything from St. Ives to La Mer) and this one surpasses all of them.  I love the smell, it’s gentle enough to use everyday, and it makes my skin incredibly soft.  This eye cream is light and refreshing – perfect for tired eyes in the morning.  I’ve been using this face cream for years.  The texture is just right (not too thick, not too thin) and it’s affordable.  A makeup artist introduced me to this under eye concealer.  Bye bye dark circles!  This foundation gives me a smooth, even skin tone.  I wear it everyday and simply apply it with my fingers (a sponge or brush absorbs a lot so you’ll run out faster.)  This is the best bronzer out there.  I don’t usually wear blush, but love this one.  This is my everyday eyeshadow, and this is my smoky eyeshadow.  I throw this palette in my bag when I’m in a rush or traveling because it has every color I need.  I’ve had Smashbox brushes since high school.  I use this one for blush, this one for eyeshadow, this one to create a smoky eye, and this one to fill in my brows.  I use eyeshadow to fill in my brows.  I’ve tried several other products but eyeshadow works best!  This brown eyeliner stays on throughout the day.  This black eyeliner is soft and easy to apply. This is the only lipgloss I wear – it’s nude and subtle.  I’m not a lipstick girl, but recently got this one and love it.  Caudalie products are so gentle and their makeup remover is the absolute best.  No one wants pasty legs… this lotion gives the illusion of a tan.  This shampoo keeps my hair healthy (I also don’t blow dry it), and this conditioner gets rid of split ends.  I’ve tried so many different hairsprays and this one really works, plus it’s only $3!  I wear Creed “Acqua Fiorentina” in the spring/summer and Tocca “Florence” in the fall/winter.  Every once in a while I’ll paint my nails red, but you’ll usually find me wearing a light pink or dark purple polish.  This mini polish kit is the perfect stocking stuffer…stay tuned for my holiday gift guides next week.
