Part of every woman's self-care regimen should include a bevy of amazing beauty products. When we take the time to care for ourselves inside and outside, we feel more beautiful, pampered and cared for. We walk with a little more swagger, we smile, engage in life and have more joy when we feel and look our best. I am not suggesting this in a vain way but just putting your best foot forward elevates your mood and how you approach challenges in your life. So with that said, here are my new favorite products to assist you in curating the perfect beauty routine.
doTERRA Essential Skin Care Anti- Aging
This family of skin care products is designed to maximize the natural power of essential oils in helping to keep your skin feeling and looking young, healthy, and gorgeous. I have been using it for 2 weeks now and I have to say I think my skin looks and feels amazing! I also use Imortalle essential oil on my face morning and night.
e.l.f. Make Up Brush Cleaner Wipes
I don't know about you but I really do not like to wash my make-up brushes. I always washed them with hot soapy water and it took 2 days for them to dry. I picked up these little wipes 6 months ago and never used them. I found them while cleaning out my bathroom cabinet last week and I was like "hey my brushes need some cleaning so why not?" OMG so easy and quick! Love these wipes and will be using much more frequently to keep my make-up brushes clean! And for the price of $3.00 per box you cannot beat it!
Lancôme CILS Booster XL
This innovative mascara primer gives your lashes an XL boost with just one sweep, gliding on in even coats to smooth your lashes and maximize the results of your favorite mascara. The magic behind this mascara base is the conditioning formula—featuring micro-fibers and Vitamin E—to add extra length and thickness to your lashes for added visible performance to your mascara. I love this stuff and cannot start my day without it!
Too Faced Hangover RX Face Primer
I purchased this a week ago to try it as I curious about the coconut water and probiotics. I have to say of all the primers I have tried, this is the winner!
When long days of work and late nights of play give you a beauty hangover, this is your instant cure. Hangover is a revolutionary makeup primer infused with coconut water, probiotics and skin revivers that work together to boost skin’s radiance, promote elasticity and help hydrate while locking down makeup for fresher, longer and more flawless wear.
It cosmetics CC+ Cream
I was introduced to this amazing cream by my good friend Janet. I tried it once and was hooked! Developed with plastic surgeons, it truly gives you full, flawless, perfect coverage and protects your skin with SPF 50+ UVA/UVB broad-spectrum physical sunscreen. I use it daily with and add a small amount of doTERRA Immortelle Anti-Aging Blend Essential Oil.
Clinically shown to give you 179% of skin hydration, smooth skin texture and enhance skin brightness, this breakthrough color-correcting cream never creases or cracks and instantly camouflages skin imperfections including dark spots. Plus, it’s infused with an advanced anti-aging serum made of hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamins A, B, C and E that work in harmony to diffuse the look of wrinkles, minimize pores and give you a more radiant, supple and flawless-looking complexion.
I originally bought this for my daughter Audrey a couple of years ago while high on the spinning world of cosmetics at Sephora. You know what I am talking about! She wasn't using it so I grabbed it and tried it on my barely there eyelashes. You know what they say, bigger is better. With this bestselling, volumizing mascara, you'll get big, outrageously full lashes with curves to spare. The vitamin-enriched, clump-resistant formula deepens, darkens and thickens lashes with rich black color while the hourglass-shaped brush evenly coats lashes from root to tip for perfect separation and definition.
Tarte Park Avenue Princess Bronzer
Another find from Audrey's makeup drawer..... She got this as a mini version in a Ipsy make-up sample kit. I asked to borrow it one day and didn't want to give it back. I love the shimmer and the color I get from it. You can contour and layer to create any bronze look you want! This is tarte’s best-selling bronzing powder in the iconic park ave princess™ shade.
If you have not discovered Kristin Ess' hair care line at Target, you should run out and get yo self some pronto. I have very difficult hair to work with and I have now been using three of her products the Working Serum, the Working Thickening Spray and the Working Texture Spray. LOVE them for their amazing smell, how they work and the cost. It is a win/win/win!
Kristin Ess Hair began with a simple idea: create an affordable collection of luxury haircare and styling products that would give everyone the chance to create modern, perfectly-imperfect hair. Who better to make all of our #hairgoals come true than Kristin Ess? With twenty-two years of expertise as a top hairstylist and colorist, along with her intimate insight into what products were truly needed to create the most beautiful hairstyles, Kristin developed the range of cleansers, conditioners, dry and wet stylers that we’ve all been waiting for.
Bobbie Brown Illuminating Bronzing Powder Antigua 2
I got this illuminating bronzing powder in March when I had not seen the sun in a while. You all remember last winter, right? I was actually looking for a new lip color as a little pick me up. The lady at Nordstrom said that I really needed this bronzer to "not look dead." I was thankful for her honesty and quickly added this bronzer to my lipstick purchase. I use it every day even with my summer bronzer. It does make you look a little more alive! Formulated with a perfect blend of sheer powders and micro pearls, this bronzer helps give skin a seamless, naturally radiant glow. Sheer mica powder and flat pearls reflect light and give skin beautiful luminosity without ever looking muddy or chalky.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
I recently took a break from using this and had to go back. If you want your eye shadow to last all day long, this product is for you, It also creates a perfect foundation for your eye shadow to look flawless. The number-one primer* for indestructible, all-day eye shadow, this legendary Eyeshadow Primer Potion delivers everything you could possibly want in an eye primer: No creasing. More vibrant color. Smoother application. Eyeshadow Primer Potion features space-age polymer technology that fills in any imperfections on the skin’s surface, prepping your lids for ALL-day shadow. Of course, every shade is paraben-free.
H2O - SOMA Water Pitcher
Drink more water... We hear this all day but it is true! I recently purchased this while on a trip to Seattle. I was tired of using so many bottles of water at work. The waste was killing me. I keep it filled with water in the fridge at work. I fill up every hour or when I take a potty break. I love the design and the filter is even better because it removes heavy metals like mercury, in addition to chlorine. It’s made from 60% plant based and renewable materials, which means a lower carbon footprint.
I hope you are having a beautiful start to fall!
