Show us your life--Beauty Tips & Favorite Products


Im pretty excited about today's post and cant wait to read every ones tips and favorite products. I LOVE products!!! hah...I have so many and half I probably do not use. But here are some of my all time favs!

Okay here are my favorite SKIN CARE products! I love Bobbi Brown's skin care line....I use the tube soap, toner, moisturizer and eye cream. This is the best!! I love that it gives a fesh clean feeling-- I do not like a residue on my skin. Now...I have recently found this Bobbi Brown exfoliator...LOVE IT...all you do it sprinkle a little into your face wash and scrub away. It doesnt take much and works so well!
I hate dry itchy skin...I moisturize everytime I get out of the shower. For a cheap lotion I like Aveeno {its not oily and moisturizes well} but my FAVORITE go to lotion would be any of the Philosophy lotions. These seriously are amazing. Yes, they cost a bit more or should I say a lot more but personally worth every penny!

oh and I cant forget the Dove beauty bar!! Yes, this is my favorite soap!

Okay moving right along to HAIR PRODUCTS. Lets see....I change up shampoo and conditioners often but my favorites would be Joico {moisturizing...blue bottle}, Halo, and Pureology Nano {its expensive but awesome} Im pretty lucky...my mom is a hairdresser/makeup artist so I get products for cost. Thank Goodness!!
I for sure could not live without my Chi Turbo Hair dryer or Chi Iron. I have curly/wavy hair so it helps to make it silky smooth. No I have a ton of people ask me how I get my curls to look good and stay. Well ladies here is my trick {which really is not a trick} I have found that the best curling iron that works for me is the Hot Tools Professional brand. This iron gets to the perfect temp and sets curls perfectly! Then I spray with Freeze It hairspray. {cheap walmart stuff but works GREAT!!}


Now to the makeup we go! Gosh I have such a variety of products and Favs. Lets see I use Makeup Forever Foundation {yes its a liquid that dries like a powder...covers great and IS NOT heavy}
Bobbi Brown concealer, Smashbox matte bronzer, Nars blush in Orgasm {best stuff ever}, I change eyeshadows like I do clothes but some of my favs.....MAC's Twinks, Sable, Naked Lunch, and Hush. Now in order to make eyes pop I have a "go to" color that I apply on the outside corners and smudge in...this also works great for a smoky eye. Nars Nightclubbing.

MAC eyeliner and MAC lipliner, lipsticks, and glosses. {I change them and mix them all the time} Oh...yes...but my FAVORITE lipgloss is from Nars called Turkish Delight!!
Last but not least....Mascara "oh for the love of lashes" ha...I love lashes! Lancome Hypnose is my all time favorite mascara!!! Of course I couldnt apply it without first using my Shu Uemura eyelash curler. {you can grab one at Sephora} This curler is the best...and I have tried plenty...its curls even with pinching!! Im asked often if my lashes are fake but I have to say I have my curler and mascara to thank. :)

So this my friends....would be my FAVORITE products! Im very excited about reading yalls advice...new products and tips never hurt!

So, if you have never played along head over to Kellys Korner and join the fun!

I'm going to have to try out some more of the Bobbi Brown face products. I love the tube soap. My face always feels so clean. My mom used to cut hair but she is still licensed so I'm spoiled with hair products too!
Happy Friday!
