Beauty Products I Use

Hey Friends!

So I am not going to say that I am some beauty guru because I am not. I will also start this off by saying that I am not being compensated at all by anyone for anything I have to say in this post. I am simply sharing with you some of the products I love and use on a daily basis. I know I love when people share the things they use and love and I just thought I would do the same!

Recently I have noticed that I am using more products as I am getting older. When I was younger I used to wash my face and call it a day. I was never a big makeup person or product person for that matter. I have noticed as I have aged and now that I have a child I feel like if I do not take the time to put some extra effort into my face and skin in general I feel blah. I just recently did a post about how I have been making a dedicated effort to pull myself together. So I figured today I would share some of the stuff I used to do that!

This morning while I was getting myself together I snapped a photos of most of the stuff I use. Lets start with the shower. In the shower I wash my hair with Vibrant Sexy Hair Color Lock Shampoo and Conditioner.

I get my hair done about once every 8 to 10 weeks and I want the color to last. I use to use Herbal Essence but I feel like this stuff is keeping the color better. After I wash my hair and rinse it out I put in the conditioner and let that sit while I wash my face using my Clairsonic Mia 2. I got this for Christmas and have been using it everyday since! I LOVE it and I love the results I have gotten with it! My face is so much smoother and my makeup goes on so much nicer now! Right now I am using the face cleanser that came with it. I don’t know if I am going to stick with that or try something else. I am open to suggestions! I also leave the conditioner in while I wash the rest of my body and shave if need be.

This bodycology scrub is the best! I swear by this stuff! I use this before I shave! I get such a better shave when I do! I also use this if I am planning to use my self-tanner.

When I get out of the shower Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer is the best for me! I love that it is nice and light yet very moisturizing! It soaks right in and by the time I put on clothes it is dry. I also use it without fail if I am putting on self-tanner because I feel like my tanner works so much better when I am well moisturized. If I am gonna use self-tanner I love using Rodan & Fields Sunless Foam Tanner. I find it really easy to work with and it’s nice and light and has a nice smell to it. I also really like the color it gives me. It is not an orang-y typical fake tan color. It is pretty natural!

After all that it is makeup time!

I start with Dicinson’s Witch Hazel as a toner and then I put on some Oil of Olay face lotion. After that dries I put on elf makeup primer. I just recently started using this after finding it at Old Navy of all places and I really love how light it is and how smooth it is. It really makes my CC cream go on so nicely. After that I put on MAC Fast Response Eye Cream. I have been using this for a few months now and I love how it really smooths out and brightens the under eye area. After that is all dry I put on my CC Cream. Lately I have been using It Cosmetics CC cream in Light and I really like it. It gives me a nice coverage and really evens out my skin tone.

Next I move to my eyes.

MAC eyeshadows are my favorite! These three specifically are my go to shades. Quary on top, Scene on the bottom left and Yogurt on the bottom right.

I also like to put on a little shimmer powder on my lids. My two favorites are ULTA Pearl Shimmer and Bare Minerals Cultured Pearl. I also just picked up a IT Cosmetics 3 color palate in Pretty in Plum and I am really liking those colors too!

For eyeliner I will either use eyeshadow with a eyeliner brush or I will use one of these two MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Grey Utility or Duck.

I then go back to my face and apply some MAC Loose Blot Powder to set everything. After that I curl my eyelashes and put on some mascara. My current favorite is CoverGirl Lash Blast in Black.

    MAC shadows are THE best! And they last forever. I JUST threw one away and I’m regretting it because there was still some left in it! I’m a huge fan of Dickinson’s and use it every morning as well!
