Anybody who knows me knows that I love trying new beauty brands and products! But over the years, there are a few products that I just can’t seem to live without now. Here are my go-to beauty essentials that I use everyday and think you should try too…
Hoola Matte Bronzer, Benefit Cosmetics I’ve been using this bronzer for over 14 years now, and it still remains to be my number one! It’s perfect for all skin types (both men and women), as it has no shimmer or sparkle and leaves the skin with a clean matte finished look.
Vitalumière Aqua, crème powder, Chanel The entire Chanel cosmetic line is amazing, but I especially love their crème power foundation, as it gives your skin an all-over, even tone without feeling too heavy.
Shimmer Brick, Bobbi Brown in Bronze, this stuff cannot only be used as a blush, but also as a highlighter or even eye shadow! It comes in several color palettes that you can mix/combine and is great for travelling, as it’s easy to slip into your purse for those long days that turn into night and you need a bit of shimmer!
MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moister Gel I started using this moisturizer about a year and a half ago and have had amazing results. It’s a lightweight gel, but because it is water-based it keeps my skin super hydrated (even in the dry winter months)!
NARS blush in Torrid The reason I love NARs blushes so much is because they are available in a variety of shades and the pigment is super rich when they are applied. I often wear Torrid, as the coral red shimmer compliments my skin tone (with or without a tan). I will often use Torrid or Orgasm (which is a lighter peachy pink shimmer) on my wedding parties for this reason too!
MAC c-thru Lipglass Although sometimes I think my lipstick collection has gotten slightly out of control as I have far too many to choose from, this one is my constant go-to (I always keep it in my purse)! This is a great everyday lip-gloss if you just want a more natural glossy nude lip. All in all, it looks nice with any clothes it’s paired with and is great for both day and night!
Chanel Mascara, Le Volume De Chanel I have tried SO many mascara’s over the years, but this is by far my favorite! I’m constantly recommending this to my clients and they have all loved it too. I find it plumps my lashes and gives volume at the same time, without looking too clumpy.
Chloé Eau de Perfume If you follow me in Instagram, you’ll know that I also have a love for things that smell pretty! So, it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that I have tons and tons of perfumes, body sprays and even home sprays! However, this is the only bottle of perfume where I have used the entire bottle… three times!
Dior Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm This is a great lip balm for when your lips need hydration! I love using it under my other lipsticks and lip-glosses, as it smells like roses, keeps my lips moisturized and plump!
Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW Pomade After the first time I used this product, I became an addict. The reason why I love it is because it’s in-between a shadow and a waxy pencil, so it gives my brows a dense but natural look. It is also smudge-proof and long lasting, which is perfect for those days. Plus, the brow brush application process allows you to get a defined brow and is easier to apply than a brow pencil!
Chanel Black Satin, Nail Polish I can’t talk beauty products without mentioning nail polish. I’m constantly painting my nails, but this is the color that I favor the most! I know Chanel nail polish is a bit more expensive than the generic drugstore brands, but I find it lasts so much longer (both in the bottle and on my nails)!
I hope you find these products helpful and maybe you have already tried some. Let me know what some of your fave go to beauty products are! Thanks for reading!
