My Five Beauty Must Haves


I try to keep my makeup routine fairly simple since I get reeeeeally antsy when the process takes any longer than 10-15 minutes (unless someone else is doing my makeup, then I could sit there all day).

I have tried endless products over the years, some that have stuck with me and others that I've tossed to the side. So, I thought I would share my top 5, ride or die favorites. 
Some are newer to my repertoire, and some are old friends, tried and true. 
However, all are 100% keepers.

1. Peter Thomas Roth - Glycolic Acid 3 Percent Facial Wash - This is a new one for me and I am obsessed with it! The wash is gentle (doesn't sting) while using it, but immediately after you feel the effects (skin feels tight and a little dry). Slather on your favorite moisturizer after use (I use this one) and you're all set. My skin literally glows after using this!

2. Laura Geller - Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator  - I always try the latest and greatest when it comes to illuminators, and always come up disappointed…until now. I've been searching for that striking cheekbone glow (can anyone teach me how to strobe?) and this product gives you just that! It is so gorgeous and super easy to use. Definitely recommend it!

3. Perricone MD - No Mascara Mascara - This is an old favorite of mine. The cool part is the duel action brush. You use the thick side of the brush to stroke on the product, and then the comb side to pull the mascara through the lashes. It is my very favorite mascara (tied with this one)

4. Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz - ICYMI I previously did a post on brows. For years I never did anything beyond occasional waxing for my brows, but lord has that changed. I use the Brow Wiz pencil to fill mine in and smooth the shape and it really does wonders for framing your face. Please get this product and consult a Sephora makeup artist for tips and tricks - your world will change (dramatic).

5. Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Color -  In 402 Adrienne - This is my go to lip shade for day and night. It's a gorgeous neutral and has a super creamy texture to it. This is the one lip product I will always have in my purse.

What are your must have products?
