Beauty: My Go-To Products


Happy Monday everyone! Today I want to share a few of my staple beauty products with all of you. These products are all go-to items for me and most of them are used on a daily basis. 

Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Color in 'Rose Comete': I wear this lipstick almost every day. I love the consistency and the color is a great pinky, rose color. It's provides a good amount of color, but it is also sheer enough to layer over a lip stain to add some pink shimmer to your lip. Love it! 

NARS eye shadow duo in 'Alhambra': I've featured this eyeshadow in the past {here}, but this is one of the few eye shadows I own and actually use. It has two colors: one that is a light gold/rose color and then one that is more of a bronzy gold. They are both great for making your eyes pop and adding some light to the eye area. I like to use this in the center of my eyelid, all over the lid and/or in the inner corners of my eyes. This duo is especially great for making blue and green eyes pop, but because it's a neutral combination, both colors would look great on anyone. 

Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in 'Golden Light': I've used this bronzer ever since middle school and I have yet to find one I like better. Matte. Natural color. Enough said. 

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in 'Bisque': Another product that I've used for years now and I have not been able to find anything that works better. I have tried lots of other tinted moisturizers and BB creams, but this is still the one I always end up coming back to. Even though it is sheer coverage, it evens out my skin tone and just makes my skin look better. 

Dior 'Diorshow Blackout' Mascara: This is one of my top two favorite mascaras. I layer this on top of my Lancome Hypnose mascara to add extra volume and to get my lashes extra dark. 

Laura Mercier Blush in 'Lush Nectarine': This is a new favorite for me. I have used this same blush, but in Lotus Pink {still one of my all-time favorites}, but recently I tried this color and I love it! It is more of a coral blush, but goes on to give a perfectly flushed color. Definitely a new go-to for me. 

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in 'Bellini': I almost never wear lip gloss, but this color is so pretty and can be layered over any color to add some subtle shimmer.  

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain in 'Smitten' and 'Honey': I just tried these a couple of months ago and I'm so glad I did. These lip stains are super soft and the colors are great. The lighter color 'Honey' I wear almost every day as my base color and then layer my Chanel lipstick over it--my new favorite combination. The 'Smitten' color is a really pretty bright, berry color and is a new favorite as well. 

Aquaphor: This is another beauty product I can't live without. This is my favorite for moisturizing my lips, but I also use it when my hands get dry, to tame any flyaways and even on Ben's hair when it gets a little crazy. It's the best and I never leave home without it. 

Boots Quick Thinking 4-in-1 Wipes: These are hands down the best makeup wipes ever. I've tried other brands, but they either have a weird smell or sting my eyes. These are gentle enough that they don't irritate my eyes, but strong enough to remove all my makeup. I use these every night to remove my makeup before I wash my face with my Clarisonic. I always buy them in the two packs so I never run out. Definitely one of my beauty products I can't live without. 
  
Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller: I use this every morning to help with any puffiness and to help me look more awake. I've tried a few different eye products to make my eyes look less puffy and so far this is my favorite. 

La Mer Soft Cream: This is definitely an expensive investment, but totally worth it. I like to use this face cream at night before bed and I always wake up with super soft skin. A must-have in any skincare routine.

  2. Bobbi Brown Golden light is my HG bronzer as well! Rose Comete looks so beautiful on you! I really like that shade but was afraid of it because it looked like it had a lot of sparkle, but looks really natural on you!

    1. Hi Cayla! The blouse is by Theory and unfortunately, it is from last year so I don't think it's still available. Equipment has a similar pajama style this year that I love. Here are links to two different patterns/colors: http://rstyle.me/n/mukae34aw and http://rstyle.me/n/r25d934aw. Thanks for your comment!
