Stridex Sensitive Skin Acne Wipes: I got introduced to this by sort of stealing it all the time from my old roommate (Sorry Holls!) and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I cut the pads in half and swipe it over my T-zone for oil control after I wash my face. It’s never been too hard on my sensitive skin. I then put on a light moisturizer and I’m ready for life!
Paw Pallet: I found this Paw Pallet on beautylish, and I’ll tell you what… it’s amazing. For someone who loves (I mean, LOVES) to play with makeup it’s so much more sanitary than using the back of your hand. You can find information on it here.
Real Techniques Makeup Brushes: I got a set of Real Techniques brushes from Ulta and I have to say they are super soft, super strong (no hairs falling out all over the place) and the most fantastic blending machines I’ve ever had. I love using this one for blending concealer, eye shadow, applying highlighter… the list could go on.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser (Dark Circles): My mom was using this for a while and I decided to try it because I realized that when everyone was telling me I looked tired it was because I looked tired. Not cool! I’ve found it to be absolutely wonderful, it’s smooth and easy to blend, not to mention the application is as simple as clicking and swiping with the super soft thingy on the top.
Stila “In The Light” Palette: The colors, Duke, the colors! This things has be most incredible colors for a girl who stays in the neutral range more often than not! It has a wonderful light bone color, two pretty sparkle/metallic gold colors, some absolutely incredible rose tones, a denim blue for those fancy days, and the essential darks brown, gray and black. And let’s not forget the fabulously smudge-able dark brown liner that’s included. Basically, I love this pallet.
L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara: I have eyelash issues. They are not super long. They are partially blonde. And one side has more than the other. Basically I don’t really focus on them too much. But this mascara makes them so long and beautiful without looking like spiders are squished in between my eyelids! It doesn’t get super clumpy, and it stays on all day.
Make Up Forever High Definition Powder: It sets the makeup on the skin. I couldn’t afford this by myself, I got it as a reward for spending too much money at Sephora. This little sample size has lasted me 9 months and there is still a lot left. Someday I’ll have to invest… scary thought. Make Up Forever has a good reputation because it’s good quality makeup, but the money spent will make me cry.
Ion Repairing Oil Treatment: When my hair starts feeling like hay I start running a few drops of this through after I take a shower. It doesn’t weigh my hair down, and it does make it feel super silky and smooth.
