Favorite (and promising) Beauty Products
I love when I find products that work like the first time every time! These are a just a few of my current MUST HAVE products!
From blow-drying to curling irons I put my locks through a lot! MOROCCANOIL Treatment is great because not only is it super light but it smells GREAT (also makes me feel like I’m in the Caribbeans!) After showering I let my hair dry for a few minutes and then pump a nickel sized amount onto my palms and evenly distribute through my hair. Then I go on my morning routine; coffee, make up, NYT’s, sneak in some online shopping (hehe). The MOROCCANOIL hairspray is great too!
I never bought into the whole “primer will change your life” craze but after a few of my friends told me to give it a try I couldn’t resist. As always, my friends were right! Smashbox Photo Finish is light and non greasy which is great for my skin. Applying primer really does leave your face even and flawless and keeps your make up on longer throughout the day!
After I finish applying my make up I lightly brush on the Make Up For Ever HD Micro Finishing Powder which sets the make up giving a clean, flawless, matte finish. I carry around a little tub of it in my purse at all times for when I feel like I’m getting my glow on during the day.
Finding the perfect blush color can be tough but finding a blush that stays on for longer than 2 hrs is even tougher. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hr Blush is “Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River” (fancy!) Being that it is water based, it works to hydrate and nourish your face. It comes in twelve different shades (Blissful is the perfect pink for my skin tone) so you’re bound to find one that is perfect for you. Finally a blush that stays on for the entire day!
Smith’s Strawberry Lip Balm I have no idea how many of these I’ve gone through. TIP: I usually stay away from any lip balms where I have to dip my finger because I hate the messiness. After applying the balm to your lips use the leftover and moisturize your cuticles! Sounds funny but I swear my nails have never looked better!
My friend took me to her hairstylist at Bumble and Bumble in the Meatpacking District, NYC and not only did I get a great haircut but I was introduced to Bb Shine and fell in love. Just spritz 3-4 times onto your fingertips and run them through the ends of your hair. I love that it’s not sticky and leaves your hair smelling like vanilla and coconuts!
