Coming With Me to 2022…
7 Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without
2021 — what a year. There were ups and downs, laughter and tears, and good hair days and bad hair days. What matters now is that we made it through another year! That being said, I wouldn’t have been able to do it all (and look my best while doing so) without these 7 products.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
I have always been more of a sponge type of girl as opposed to one who uses a brush. This sponge from Real techniques is a cult favorite and has been my ride or die for years! It blends flawlessly for a quarter of the price of a name-brand Beauty Blender. It is a staple in my collection.
Batiste Clean & Light Dry Shampoo
I only wash my hair once every 3 days. That being said, dry shampoo is a necessity in my hair care routine! I love the Clean & Light bottle from Batiste because it leaves my hair feeling fresh and never heavy or weighed down. Plus the big bottle lasts me forever!
Tinted Lip Balm
This year I really tried to step up my makeup game. I've always gravitated towards the natural “no-makeup” look but found myself craving something more mature. A tinted lip balm is a great way to add color to the face without committing to a full matte statement lip. Berry and plum tints are my favorite because of the deep color payoff. And I no longer have chapped lips! It’s a win-win!
Thank God for these magical little tools! I swear that every time I use these (which is about once every 2 weeks), my complexion is brighter and my skin gets clearer! Not to mention that my makeup lays beautifully when I have a baby-smooth face! You can pick them up at any local drugstore or shop for them online below!
FetishEyes Lengthening Mascara
I LOVE this mascara. I received it last year for Christmas and need a new bottle ASAP. Its buildable formula hydrates and lengthens without clumping. This mascara is by far the closest to falsies I’ll get without actually wearing them!
Gimme Brow+ Tinted Volumizing Eyebrow Gel
As a blonde, it is hard to find eyebrow products that aren't too dark or overpowering for my hair color (remember I prefer the natural look). I first tried Gimme Brow as a sample and instantly fell in love. It fills my brows perfectly by feathering and fluffing them as opposed to harshly filling them in. They stay in place all day without feeling plastered to my face. Application is effortless and the result is to die for. I’ll always be a Gimme Brow lover!
Last but not least are zit stickers. Let's be real, this year was a stressful one and I had breakouts like never before. Wherever I felt one coming on, I’d pop on a sticker and a couple of hours later the pimple would be gone! Seriously, it's like magic. Plus just between you and me, I so wore these under my mask while running into the grocery store or class. Convince is key with these!
