There are a few beauty products I get asked about over and over again, and then some that I want to share with you because I think everyone should know how amazing they are, so I put together this list of 7 favorite of my beauty products right now.
#1. Beauty Blender (similar): I picked mine up at CVS, but I linked to another one online if you prefer to order one. This is a great little tool for blending in your concealer and foundation and making sure your skin looks flawless.
#2. CND Solar Oil: This product is AMAZING for keeping your nails healthy and strong. I had pretty much sworn off gel manicures until I discovered a new nail salon that recommends this product. Seriously, a game changer. When I slack off, I can tell immediately — my nails get brittle and start to chip and break. If I use it every night, my nails stay moisturized and healthy.
#3. Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara: I’ve been using Lancome mascara since I was 16. I have tried other brands over the years, but nothing compares. I’m currently using the Hypnose Drama Full Volume, and I love it. It’s a lengthener and a thickener, and it does an amazing job. I always apply 2 or three light coats.
Lately, I’ve taken to adding a final layer of Benefit’s They’re Real Lengthening Mascara on top. It really puts the finishing touch on my face, and I’ve had lots of questions about what mascara I use. I love the combination of the two, but if I could only keep one, I’d keep my Lancome.
#4. IT COSMETICS Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer: I just recently discovered this product, and I LOVE IT. I didn’t used to wear much concealer, but as I get older, I have dark circles and bags under my eyes that I need to disguise. This stuff is AMAZING.
#5. Clarins Self-Tanning Instant Gel: This is my go-to self tanning lotion. I swear by it. It goes on smoothly and doesn’t make you orange. I start using it about now, and I’ll use it all summer long. If you’re not confident in your ability apply self tanner, see my post: How To Apply Self Tanner.
#6. Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eye Shadow Palette: This is another new discovery. I’ve heard of these Naked palettes for ages, but I finally broke down and bought one. Seriously the best eye shadow I’ve ever used. They have so much pigment, they go on smoothly, and last all day.
#7. Coconut Oil: This one may surprise you, but in addition to be healthy to eat, coconut oil makes a fabulous beauty product. I slather it on my dry skin for instant moisture, and I keep a little container in my bathroom to use as eye makeup remover. NOTHING works as well. It’s gentle and removes eye makeup thoroughly — all 3 or 4 layers of my heavy duty mascara!
I have so many more, but those are some of my absolute favorites.
I’d love to hear about any of your favorite beauty products! I’m always up for trying new things.
