Some days I am doing well if I just put my contacts in. To be honest, the hardest thing about working from home for me is not wanting to do my hair and makeup everyday. I’m not that girl that loves sitting in front of the mirror for hours – I wish I just work up with plucked eyebrows and a shiny lip. Don’t we all?
Because I’ve been simplifying my daily beauty routine, I wanted to share some of my favorite new products with you. These make my life SO easy – and keep me feeling beautiful.
Also, I am SUPER cheap. I hardly ever buy a luxury brand – all I ever look for are the best drugstore beauty products that I can find in Target or online!
Also – these are some of the HIGHEST-RATED beauty products on Amazon. Each one of them has a cult-following. This always shows me that they are worth trying – especially because they are all under $10!
Mario Badescu Facial Spray
I bought the Mario Badescu Facial Spray awhile back when I wanted to experiment with no makeup on my days at home. It is awesome! I love the fresh rose scent and the freshness it brings to my face. I love it without makeup, over makeup, or when I just need a pick-me-up! If you work at a desk, I totally recommend keeping a bottle of this stuff in your drawer :).
Pink Armor Nail Strengthener
I LOVE beautiful nails. And, if I had all the time in the world, I’d be painting them every other day. But, who has all the time in the world? I found this Pink Armor Nail Strengthener and had to try it! Not only does it make my nails incredibly healthy, but now my natural nails are actually pretty! They add a pink shine to my nails. The actual “polish” takes a few seconds to dry, and I don’t have to walk around waving my hands to keep from messing anything up! Definitely try this one.
Batiste Dry Shampoo
I’ve tried tons of Dry Shampoo brands, and Batiste Dry Shampoo is hands down the best. I have bought it three times in a row now – so that’s how I know it’s my favorite. It’s fresh. It smells good. And it works. What more does a girl want? (Read all my about my Dry Shampoo research here!)
Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm
L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara
It is no secret that L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara is my favorite mascara ever. Even all the celebrities love it. (Read my full review here!) What I love about it, is that it feels like eye liner, mascara and a hot date all rolled into one. Who doesn’t want to feel like a hot date on an average Wednesday morning? Only want one new product to try? This is it.
Age Rewind Concealer
My all-time favorite concealer is Maybelline’s Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser. I don’t have perfect skin, so if I want to look good without makeup and powder, this concealer does it. It is so thick, that it covers everything. It is perfect for under eye circles, blemishes and just a face pick-me-up. You HAVE to read all the awesome reviews here for this concealer here. Everyone loves it!
Palladio Baked Bronzer
I go through a lot of bronzer and blush. I remember one time growing my mom said, “And we ran out of the house before I even had time to put on my blush!” Haha. This is totally me with bronzer.
This Atlantic Tan bronzer by Palladio is my favorite bronzer BY FAR. I have bought it for almost 7 years – and am never without it! It is natural for me, doesn’t smudge and gives my cheeks a shimmer glow! Add this on a plain face and you look like a movie star. It is incredible quality for the super-low price!
