SUYL - Favorite Beauty Products
I know that a lot of people think that I require a lot of beauty products but it simply is not true. The more children I added, the more true it became! Ha!!
Kelly at http://www.kellyskornerblog.com featured Favorite Beauty Products on her weekly edition of Show Us Your Life this week and I thought I would share my favorites! :)
First, the most important part of my day is a good face cleanser. Every single day, I use this little set that I LOVE LOVE LOVE by Mary Kay:
This is the Volu-Firm Set. What I love about this is that the cleanser is really foamy so it feels like I am really washing my face! After that, I use the Lifting Serum which makes my face feel firm, then in the morning, the Eye Renewal Cream (which is AHHH-mazing), and the Day Moisturizer, and just the Night Moisturizer at night. This set is a little pricey but if I can look like Mary Kay in my 90's, I am good with that! :)
I used to SWEAR by Bare Minerals because I do not like to feel like I am wearing makeup. In the last year I started selling Mary Kay and they have a mineral powder foundation that I have started using and I like it just as well and it is cheaper so that is what I use now.
Sometimes when I want a little extra coverage I will also use the matte-finish foundation under the mineral powder as well. I also use just boring eye-liner, blush, and mascara. One thing that I cannot live without is my eyeshadow. For three years in a row, I got the newest Urban Decay Naked Palette for Christmas. Bless my husband...one year, he could not find the Naked Palette 3 in stock anywhere! he went to 3 different Ulta stores looking for it and finally ordered it online!!! :) BUT...it is my favorite!! I use it every single day!!
On the makeup front, I will just mention that I have used the same lipstick since I was able to start wearing makeup at 16 years old. Yes, I am boring. It is Raisinberry by Mary Kay. I hope that they never retire it. I have tried some others, especially since selling it, but I always go back to this one. It is just my color!
The only other thing I will mention is hair. I believe that my hair is my best feature. I spend a lot of money getting my hair done and I spend a lot on hair products. I have very thick hair and it is not exactly easy to manage! My favorite shampoo is Biolage and because I do color my hair, I use the color-fast one. It smells SO GOOD!!!
I also have to use conditioner every time I wash my hair. I try to only to wash it every other day. I have recently discovered dry shampoo...not sure if I love it yet but I am using it. I also use a little product called Biosilk. I have used this since I was in high school. Since my hair is so thick, it sometimes gets frizzy. I use Biosilk when it is wet and just run it through...it helps keep the frizz down and I sometimes even use it when it is dry. it smells SO GOOD!!!!! A little goes a REALLY REALLY long way!!!
So...there's my secrets!! HAHAHA!!! Really, I am pretty simple. I do like to put on makeup if I am going out but I really don't wear a lot. I don't have a lot of time to do much!!!
