While style and fashion is my focus, I’ve noticed that many of your comments are about my beauty products. (And hey, beauty and style go hand in hand!) With that said, I figured the best way to answer all of your questions was to show you exactly what I use on a daily basis! From my makeup to skin care routine, I made a list of the products I absolutely can not live without:
I wear Givenchy’s Dahlia Divin. It’s my absolute favorite, sweet and woody without being overwhelming.
The best: Benefit’s BADGal Mascara
This Lorac Pro Palette is pretty much all I ever need. I love the rich neutral colors and there is a great balance of matte and shimmery shadows.
If you haven’t tried Benefit’s Erase Paste, then I suggest you run immediately to the store and test this out. This under eye concealer is a game changer.
Bare Minerals Faux Tan has been my go to self tanner for almost 8 years now. When you look at the lotion, it has a green tint to it, which is why it doesn’t turn your skin orange, just a beautiful brown.
MAC’s Ruby Woo is the only red I own!
This is the bronzer version of my self tanner (Bare Minerals Faux Tan).
I use these Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes every night on my eye makeup.
This “Benefit they’re real! push-up liner” is my favorite one to use for a cat eye.
Bottega Organica Skincare: I’ve been prone to acne most of my life. I have tried literally every soap, cleanser, topical cream and medication out there. This year is the first year my skin cleared up and it’s all because I changed my skincare regimen drastically. My boyfriend Patrick got me into all-natural organic products and through that I discovered oil cleansing. IT CHANGED MY LIFE.
All of the harsh chemicals I used before were actually making my skin worse. I began washing my face with oils and hot water, followed by moisturizing with even more oils. If you are struggling with acne, PLEASE do me a favor and research oil-cleansing. I was making my own oil concoctions, but I recently began using Bottega Organica’s “cleansing face oil“, followed by the “anti-blemish oil“. It does feel strange to wash your face with oil, and then pile oil on your face afterwards, but I’m telling you, it works.
I love this body highlighter (Bathina ‘Take a Picture it Lasts Longer…” by Benefit Cosmetics) for when you really want to look hot!
I am someone who collects lip balms. There are many I love, but Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Red Dahlia is my favorite because of the deeper tint.
I wear OPI Big Apple Red 80% of the year.
A lot of you have been asking about the lipliner I have been wearing recently. Hourglass Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner in “Eden” is the one I have been using. It’s my version of “The Kylie”.
