I get asked a lot about my beauty routine and my favorite products. I am breaking down my top 5 beauty items today and explaining why I cannot live without them.
-Its all about that base, bout that base!
Starting with the right base and primer is a game changer when it comes to your beauty routine. I have been asked approximately 9,146 times how I get my eye shadow to last all day without creasing. Behold the urban decay primer potion. I don’t know how they fit so much magic into that little tube but they do. This primer is my number 1 beauty secret. Your shadow will be more vibrant and last all day and night without those annoying globs and creases.
My second must have primer is MAC’s False Lashes Maximizer. This will help your lashes appear thicker, longer and fuller. I can’t even tell you what a difference this makes when it comes to creating the perfect lash look.
-Good clean skin
Cleaning up my beauty routine has been a slow but steady process. I am working to eliminate chemicals and toxins in all different areas of my life (more on that coming in another post). One of my FAVORITE beauty stores is Alliea. They have a location in Larimer square and Cherry Creek in Denver. If you are in the area stop by and check out their beautiful products or you can also shop online. This is the Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser that I cannot live without. The smell is seriously intoxicating! It is so fruity and fresh and leaves my skin feeling silky.
Weather you’re single or taken having smooth beautiful lips is always appealing. This SMOOTH anti aging lip treatment comes from EVER skin care. I have a slight obsession with lip balms and glosses. Most days it felt like I was applying it all day because my lips would still feel dry or it would wear off quickly. That was until I found this gem. It lasts forever and is one of the rare products that didn’t make my lips feel dried out. Not only that, but it left my lips smooth and refreshed. I keep an extra one on my nightstand so I can always put some on before bed.
This Chanel Iluminating Powder is one of my beauty splurges. It is the perfect finishing touch to your makeup routine and works on most all skin tones. This helps to smooth and blend any other foundation you are wearing and gives you a bit of extra glow to make your skin look even more radiant. It is also a great way to brighten and even your skin tone when worn alone. On days when I need to get out of the house quickly I will put this and a little mascara.
