My Tried And True Beauty Products

September 27, 2018

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared my favorite beauty products, and I am finally sharing my tried and true favs!!  These aren’t new products I’m trying and reviewing- these are all things I have been using for years, and out of all the lipsticks, concealers, powders, mascaras, etc- these have won in my book!!  I have found every one of these at Nordstrom and linking it all for you!! Im going to show you everything and the colors I use…

One of my most asked questions on my blog or IG is hair questions!!  I wear 20″ extensions, the sewn-in beaded wefts.  Ive tried every single method and I prefer these over tapes, individuals, or clip-ins.  I get a shadow root and highlights done around every 6 weeks.  Might have to go sooner now because I think I’ve seen a grey or two- oh my gosh its happening!!! =)  I love this blow dryer, even though Ive thought about splurging on the Dyson dryer but haven’t pulled the trigger yet because its soooo expensive!  Heard its worth it… And if I did buy it, I would only buy it from Nordstrom.  I have tried tons of curling irons and this is the only one I love.  It makes the curls last forever! Literally like 3 days!!  And its great quality so it doesn’t damage my hair. I hold it diagonally and leave an inch out at the ends.  Sometimes I use it with the clamp closed as a wand too!

I have use this Oribe oil and texture spray for a long time now and they are my fav!!  I use this Moroccan oil for my split ends and have noticed a big difference!!  I also use their shampoo and conditioner since its safe to use it on my extensions and moisturizes my dry hair.  I’ve raved about my favorite ponytail holders before, and here they are again!! If you get one thing from this post and have damaged/bleached hair it would be the Moroccan split end treatment- if your hair is normal or fine- the Oribe texture spray!!

I have been using this Mac eyeshadow in Naked Lunch for a decade!!  It brightens your eyes and its an easy one-step shadow for all over your eyes for an easy, fresh look- or when I wear red lipstick, I go easy on the eyes and only wear liner and this shadow! BUT- as far as an eyeshadow palette goes this one by Charlotte Tilbury is the Holy Grail!!!  The colors are absolute perfection and go on smooth like butter!!!  This felt tip eyeliner makes lining your lids idiot proof, the best!! The closest I can get to a winged liner ( I struggle with it!! ) is with this!!  If Im taking my eyes next level and want to really make them stand out I use this Mac gel liner on my water line. It took a few times for me to get used to it but now I don’t even feel it and been doing it for years!  I use this brown one called LowLights or the violet color!  If you’re tired or eyes a little red I use this Urban Decay white liner to brighten my eyes and take the red away.  I use this Christian Dior eyebrow ink in 021. And if you’re over the age of 30, have dark circles or bags under your eyes, or just need concealing- and you buy anything out of these- its THIS concealer!! It is MAGIC!!!
