I am (randomly) going to do a "Things I Can't Live Without" post with a theme, and I'd love to hear about the things that you can't live without! The first post is Beauty, which is pretty ironic considering I don't consider myself a big beauty buff. I'm not great at doing my makeup, kind of a one-trick-pony if you will. All the makeup I own fits into a small makeup bag. (I'm sure some of you are gasping right now thinking that is impossible! But it is honestly true, so I could use your tips!) But anyway, here is what I can't live without!
Above is my Chi flatiron. I really couldn't live without this. You don't want to see my 7th grade hair pre-Chi, ooooh it's bad.
My Benefit Benetint cheek stain is my favorite product to use. It's so easy! And I love this Stila eyeliner. It goes on really smooth and smudges easily, so if you are wanting a small perfect line, this isn't the right product for you.
My Lancome Aqua Fusion Moisturizer (with SPF 15). This goes on so light and is not greasy AT ALL. It feels more like a gel than a lotion. Lancome should pay me to be a spokeswoman because so many people ask me where I get my mascara. I was blessed with good eyelashes, but Lancome's Hypnose mascara takes them to another level.
My best friend loves this Calvin Klein Euphoria fragrance that I've been wearing since it came out. She is searching for a signature fragrance for herself, but refuses to buy this one because she says it's my signature fragrance. I'm flattered, but I love to smell others wearing it too! It is definitely my favorite of all the perfumes I own.
These drug store goodies are just as important as the rest. If you use the Bumble & Bumble hair powder, I'm telling you from experience, baby powder works just as good! Even if you are just trying to hide your dark roots, it works wonders for that and for some extra volume! The Neutrogena Micro Mist Tanning Spray is amazing! It's the only self-tanner I'll use.
I love nail polish, especially matte colors (meaning not a lot of shimmer/glitter). (Left to Right) Last year's OPI Russian line had two amazing reds, St. Petersburgundy and Vodka & Caviar. This year the France line just came out and I found three colors that were necessary to add to my collection: Tickle my Francey, You Don't Know Jacques and We'll Always have Paris. The names are just as fun as the colors!
