Happy hump Day!
Today I am going to share with you my top 5 favorite beauty products of all time. These are my ride-or-die products – the ones I use each and everyday. Let me know if you love them, too or if there are other favs I should try!
All day, everyday. Admittedly, I have been unfaithful to Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, but I always come crawling back. I like my lashes black and super voluminous. This mascara does the trick. Unlike some other mascaras, I’ve noticed that it does not get clumpy as you use it up. It stays a really smooth consistency. No matter what I try, I have never found one I love more.
This is the palette I use every morning and I can’t get enough. I absolutely adore this palette because of it’s simplicity. I’m a sucker for a matte palette and I know from experience that Too Faced has a reliable product. It is extremely build-able and blends out well, so it is great to wear with other brands, as well. The colors are simple, but beautiful and really lend easily to the ever popular “no make-up” make-up trend.
I have struggled really hard to find a primer that doesn’t get oily or feel too heavy on my lids. I switched over to Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Primer a few months ago, and haven’t looked back since. I have found in the past that some primers feel very slimy on my eyes – which I don’t think anyone likes. I was on the lookout for something cream based, not too heavy and with good stay power. I realize that with this primer, my shadow stays put all day without fail. I never have to worry about creases or colors sliding around. How I apply it in the morning is how it looks when I take it off at night.
So, I don’t know about you, but this girl lives the dark circle struggle. Ever since I was young, I have always had a serious issue with blue/black bags under my eyes. I have to admit that it is something I am so self-conscious about! If I am ever caught without make-up on, I always make some sort of joke about how I must look like I did all of the drugs the night before. It is embarrassing and I have been on the hunt for a heavy-duty, crease-free product for years. When I found Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer, I was instantly hooked. It is so light, but the coverage is unreal! It still shocks me when I put it on in the morning. I go from tired and sickly to a normal looking human being!! I even got my mom (who passed her dark circles down to me) hooked on this concealer. I swear to you – it is like magic in a little tube!
Ahhh, hair oil. This bleach-blonde can’t live without it. Because of what I put my hair through, it is so important to treat it extra nice in between color appointments. I have a ton of hair products that I swear by, but this recent find is something that is here to stay. Not only does it smell absolutely delicious, it also leaves my hair feeling nourished. I use a couple of spritz on damp hair and let it air dry, and I can feel a MAJOR difference in my dry hair. I also apply a little bit to my hair post-style and it gives my locks shine without weighing it down. I highly recommend this product to anyone who has dry, damaged hair as an easy addition to your hair routine.
With love & lilies,
